Review: Saving Zoë

Saving Zoë is not a great movie. I’ll warn you about that immediately. What is does well is look at grief and healing in a realistic way.

Review: Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn

Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn or simply Birds of Prey is a crazy onslaught of neon light and glitter bombs and wild music that tells how a group of women find each other and team up to defeat the patriarchy. It was insane and it also made complete sense.

It was a good day to watch this film and be reminded that it may take a while, but we usually do the right thing.

Review: Omniscient (Onisciente)

Omniscient (Onisciente) is a Brazilian sci-fi series streaming on Netflix. I thought it was one of the best TV series I’ve seen in weeks. It’s set in a not-too-distant future where everyone in the city has a personal drone observing them 24/7. The main character is a female computer programmer.
