I was shocked to learn that the runtime was only 90 minutes because I could have sworn it went on for four lifetimes. The acting wavers between passable, wooden, and just odd.

I’m All In For “To All the Boys: Always and Forever”

It's the right ending for the story, satisfying and bittersweet. What more needs to be said? (Spoiler: It turns out I … Continue reading I’m All In For “To All the Boys: Always and Forever”

“Desperados” Review: It Was Somehow Better and Worse Than I Expected

Honestly, when I first watched the trailer for Desperados I was pretty sure this was not a movie for me. I mean, a woman so desperate to retract an email that she drunkenly sent her boyfriend while he was MIA for five days that she drags her two best friends to Mexico to break into … Continue reading “Desperados” Review: It Was Somehow Better and Worse Than I Expected
