Review: A Vigilante

When I went to IMDB to get the names of the cast of A Vigilante, I was surprised to see so many names. This film is so intimately focused on Olivia Wilde as Sadie that it feels as if she is the only actor in the movie. It’s an all-in performance from Olivia Wilde.

Review: Hearts Beat Loud

Hearts Beat Loud appears to be a simple story about a father and daughter as she prepares to leave for college. It seems simple, but it’s actually emotionally intricate and complex. Like some of the music in this film, it’s complicated while seeming simple. It’s perfectly written and acted. It’s a wonderful movie. I give it all the stars.

Review: Veronica Mars, season 4

Veronica Mars, season 4, is available on Hulu. Creator Rob Thomas keeps the cast of characters true to their beginnings and puts them in the middle of a series of bombings in their small beach town.

Over the years, so many people have cycled in and out of the cast of Veronica Mars. A Hollywood who’s who. It’s nice to see who is still around after all this time.

Review: Mary Poppins Returns

Mary Poppins Returns was a disappointment. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t really good either. I expected it to be really good. I’m a sucker for a musical, so I was surprised that this one didn’t make me jump with joy.

Thoughts on Pearson, S1E1, The Alderman

I could never really get interested in Suits. But the spinoff Pearson has my interest. What’s the difference? It’s all about the character in the lead role. Pearson features one kickass woman vs. two men in Suits. See the difference?
