Anna, wearing handcuffs is reaching up her hand to adjust her signature black framed glasses as she stares directly at the camera.

Review: The Netflix Series INVENTING ANNA is Kind of a Scam

Hold on. Did I just get scammed by watching the series Inventing Anna, which is about the twenty-something-year-old fake German Heiress Anna Sorokin? Because I have been waiting weeks for the series to drop, and I watched all of it, but 600 whole minutes of largely pro-conwoman propaganda, really?!? That feels like a farce.

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

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: EMILY IN PARIS Season 2 Where La Dame PiPi Changed Everything For Me

Bienvenue to season two of Emily in Paris where the writers basically say: Screw you! We all complained so bitterly about last season but still binged it in droves, so the writers have no hesitation about hurling the same colorful dreck at us again this season. Is that an exaggeration? Maybe. But only slightly. Yes, … Continue reading Review: EMILY IN PARIS Season 2 Where La Dame PiPi Changed Everything For Me
