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!!

Review: “Moxie” Made Me Feel Many Feelings

Please note: The opening minute or so is blurry with fast and bumpy camera movements.  You know, watching Moxie was both thrilling and disappointing. Thrilling because it's about a group of teenage girls protesting the casual misogyny and sexual assault teenage boys perpetrate at their school without any repercussions.
