The Stand In starring Drew Barrymore in two distinct roles examines the horrors and the benefits of being famous. It appears to be a comedy from the trailer, but it is definitely not funny.Continue reading “The Stand In: A meditation on fame and celebrity”
Santa Clarita Diet hit its Sophomore Slump in season 3. It lost its spark, it got stale. There weren’t enough surprises, turns, or new ideas.Continue reading “Review: Santa Clarita Diet, season 3”
Season 2 of Santa Clarita Diet is even funnier than season 1. This story about a suburban wife, mother and realtor turned into a flesh eating member of the undead sounds like it would be terrible, but it’s really good. Continue reading “Review: Santa Clarita Diet, season 2”

Old Ain’t Dead just me, watching whatever looks good. To me. I don’t watch everything. I don’t have a “best of 2015” list because I don’t have a clue as to what most of 2015 had to offer, much less what the best of all that would be.
Yet here we are, at the end of the year, and a top 10 list is in order. So how about an Old Ain’t Dead top 10 for 2015? I present my favorites in no particular order.
I admit to being a little fast and loose with the 2015 part. Some of these things were made before 2015, but I saw them in 2015. Just go with it.
I cheated just a bit, too, because at the end I threw in a few extra mentions of things too good to ignore.
Miss You Already is about two friends. One of them dies. True, it’s sad. It’s also funny and beautiful and bursting with love and joy. Don’t let the sad realities of life hold you back from enjoying the other parts of life.Continue reading “Review: Miss You Already”
Miss You Already stars power pair Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore in a drama about best friends. Dominic Cooper and Paddy Considine play the men in the lives of these two friends.
The synopsis reads, “Miss You Already is an honest and powerful story following two best friends, Milly (Toni Collette) and Jess (Drew Barrymore), as they navigate life’s highs and lows. Inseparable since they were young girls, they can’t remember a time they didn’t share everything –secrets, clothes, even boyfriends — but nothing prepares them for the day Milly is hit with life-altering news. A story for every modern woman, Miss You Already celebrates the bond of true friendship that ultimately can never be broken, even in life’s toughest moments.”
Based on the two main characters and the relationship they show in the previews, I would watch this movie no matter what. You want a movie about women’s lives? This is one. I support that 100%.
The film is directed by Catherine Hardwicke with a screenplay by Morwenna Banks.
Miss You Already will be released on November 6.
