Review: Should You Give LAST CHRISTMAS (2019) Your Heart?

What an absolutely bizarre, melancholy, and sometimes funny little movie. I seem to remember that Last Christmas was largely panned when it came out in 2019, and not without good reasons. (There were also issues with spoilers in the trailer, I think.) When I described the plot to my husband, he was shocked I liked … Continue reading Review: Should You Give LAST CHRISTMAS (2019) Your Heart?

Review: Read Why SEX EDUCATION S3 is Perhaps the Best Season Yet

Perhaps THE most important thing to know about season 3 of Sex Education? Otis's (Asa Butterfield) moustache doesn't stick around for more than an episode. And thank goodness for that; my spirit could not have borne more of that lifeless lip-caterpillar. Why do wispy moustaches often look so creepy? That's rhetorical.

Review: THE UNUSUAL SUSPECTS Uses a Zany Premise to Talk About Universal Topics–And Succeeds Beautifully!!

I'm sorry. Why is this show not getting more exposure? The Unusual Suspects—an Australian caper-heist-dramedy about women—stayed on my Hulu homepage juuuust long enough for me to binge all four episodes, and then—POOF—it disappeared into the crowded back alleys of streaming content. Even reviews of the series are few and far between. But that’s why … Continue reading Review: THE UNUSUAL SUSPECTS Uses a Zany Premise to Talk About Universal Topics–And Succeeds Beautifully!!

Title Card "ON THE VERGE" in pink letters with a rip through the letters. Below it says Created by Julie Delpy

Review: Sadly, ON THE VERGE is Mostly “Argh!!” & “WTF?!?” But with Some Pockets of “Okay, Interesting…”

At first blush there should be no question whether I would like On The Verge. For the love of collapsing collagen, it's a show written by and starring middle-aged women that addresses relationships, motherhood, work, and unrealized dreams! But, for large portions of the series I found most of the characters either unlikeable, overly privileged, … Continue reading Review: Sadly, ON THE VERGE is Mostly “Argh!!” & “WTF?!?” But with Some Pockets of “Okay, Interesting…”
