Review: LOVE & ANARCHY (Kärlek & Anarki) is So Good That I’ve Watched it Twice…So Far

I almost missed out on Love and Anarchy. The trailer, as trailers often do, strips the series of its depth and pacing, which left me thinking it would be a lot of awkward angles and sucker punches. But I was wrong. So wrong. I've seen the series described in a lot of ways—workplace comedy, dramedy, … Continue reading Review: LOVE & ANARCHY (Kärlek & Anarki) is So Good That I’ve Watched it Twice…So Far

Title Image with Prince Tomas and looking to the left and Izzy looking over her right shoulder at the camera. Behind him is his castle. Behind her is a bridge. At the bottom it says. A Netflix Film. The Royal Treatment.

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

At the top it says Sweet Magnolias. Below Dana Sue, Helen, and Maddie are sitting together at a table over margaritas and limes.

Review: SWEET MAGNOLIAS SEASON 2 Turns Up the Drama and the Faith, But Still Keeps the Right Balance for Hypnotic Binging

Before you start watching, go ahead and pour one out for much of the levity and flirtatious moments you may have enjoyed during the first season of Sweet Magnolias, because the second season leans much harder into the DRA-MUH and the Faith (more specifically, the Jesus). We remember you fondly, oh fortuitously-timed broken pipes and … Continue reading Review: SWEET MAGNOLIAS SEASON 2 Turns Up the Drama and the Faith, But Still Keeps the Right Balance for Hypnotic Binging

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
