Review: Set Realistic Expectations for Watching THE ROYAL TREATMENT

First things first. I don't have patience for complaints about The Royal Treatment that focus on the stiff acting or the formulaic plot. Absolutely no one on planet earth should go into a movie about a New York City hairdresser and a Prince from the made up country of Lavania expecting anything but pure rom-com … Continue reading Review: Set Realistic Expectations for Watching THE ROYAL TREATMENT

Title image. Pink background. Heart, the left hand side has music notes floating away (or floating toward it to form the heart). In front of the heart Maca and Leo stand in profile facing each other unsmiling. At the bottom in white semi-cursive font it says Fuimos Canciones.

FUIMOS CANCIONES (SOUNDS LIKE LOVE) (2021) is Like a Dessert That Looks Amazing But Tastes Okayish

It's all too easy to be lured in by the attractive leads, catchy songs, eye-catching set designs, and enticing message of self-empowerment of Sounds Like Love (Fuimos Canciones). The thing is, though, the movie just doesn't have enough engaging plot, well-written dialogue, or interesting characters to stand up to the scrutiny of being watched for … Continue reading FUIMOS CANCIONES (SOUNDS LIKE LOVE) (2021) is Like a Dessert That Looks Amazing But Tastes Okayish

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.)
