I've had to sleep on this a couple of nights before figuring out how to write or talk about this movie. Is it this year's Manchester By the Sea? ...maybe. There's so much subject matter to dodge talking about since I would never want to colour anyone's viewing of this movie. i went in completely dark. It's basically the story of what life is like for a kid growing up, living in discount inn(s) close to...

Pixar pulls off another paradox in delivering a hilarious tear-jerker. Took 6-yr old Emily to this and she loved it, as did I. It's visually stunning and the music is great. Really tough subject matter to tackle and they did so in a beautiful way for kids to interpret and understand. There was this massive short film on Frozen beforehand that seemed to go on forever and felt a little rushed and easy when it came to forcing songs. This led me to better appreciate the use of music in Coco....

How has this movie not even made $90 million yet? Is it the length? I am so happy I didn't miss the chance to see this in theatres. I think my biggest takeaway is how surprisingly affecting it was. I couldn't get enough of the scenes between K (Gosling) and Joi (great supporting performance by Ana de Armas). The 2nd scene in the movie felt like almost 20 minutes of just setting this up, and at the time i found it surprising to spend this much screentime on developing this sub-plot, but it sure paid...

Wow. Where did this come from? I honestly walked into this thinking this was an early biopic of Lady Bird Johnson. Last year around this time, i cluelessly walked into Moonlight expecting something completely different as well. I think this must be the very best way to walk into a movie because this is twice that i've been totally blown away. It's similar in some ways to last year's Edge of Seventeen except instead of just supplying the ups, this one also gets into the downs really effectively. In fact, depression is explored on many...

More family-appropriate than Passion of the Christ. I really wanted to take 6-year old Emily to see Wonder but she saw a preview of The Star and really wanted to see this instead. A lot of my childhood had a large amount of catholic indoctrination media (mostly audio cassettes) so I was weary to expose her to anything that could be dripping with the Jesus juice. This movie was not that, it was a really fun and a nice adventure of basically all the animals that end up in the manger where someone of great significance...
