Raya and the Last Dragon (2021) – Movie Review

If we were to boil Kelly Marie Tran’s character Raya down to her bare essence, it would be this: You can’t lose what you don’t give away. After six years of running from monsters and enemies, she’s bitter and hard, the result of being bitten by betrayal and loss, especially at so young an age. […]

Soul (2020) – Movie Review

There’s a realness to Disney/Pixar’s Soul that rises above its animation, music, and script. It has a life, vibrancy, and urgency which recalls shades of Inside Out, a similar story where two beings must work together to find home, but Soul takes a different path.

Frozen II (2019) – Movie Review

Here was a movie which had the balls to make its bones with metaphors for the patriarchy, date rape, single parenthood, and unwanted children. Maleficent has now […]

Dumbo (2019)

What happens when you take all the magic and fun out of a children’s movie? If you’ve ever wanted to experience the answer to that, look no further than the live-action remake of Dumbo, which is fake to its very core, from its obvious CGI trappings to its actors who can’t decide if they wanted […]

Mary Poppins Returns (2018) – Movie Review

I’m having a hard time reconciling my thoughts on Mary Poppins Returns. This review has been two weeks in the making, with numerous starts and “delete everything!”s, and I’m at an impasse. Did I like the film? Well… I’m still working on that. This review is helping me suss out my feelings on this, so […]
