Top Films of 2017

Well, 2017 has come to an end. Not going to sugarcoat it folks: this was a rough year with ups and so many downs. And we’ve all felt it: the looming war, the orange moron leading us into more despair every day, the countless sexual predators finally being called out and of course who could forget the return of the Nazi! Who saw that coming? But though it all we as people had to take charge and stand up and say no more! And we did. We marched for women, fought for black lives, trans rights and basically the right to simply be free in our country. The fight continues: people who hate and fear, your time has come. You will not win.

Yes, heavy stuff this year. But when we needed to decompress or just shut off the voices in our brains and have a little enjoyment, this year was full of some great movies: wonderful films showing us love, strong females standing up for all rights, and people showing the world how much representation matters. No matter how bad things look; at least our voices in art haven’t been silenced. Read On

Review: Justice League

DC Comics fans have waited many years to see this finally happen: there is a Justice League movie. The fifth film set in the DC Movie’verse, following: Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Suicide Squad and Wonder Woman. All, except Wonder Woman, were met with mild applause and endless geek debate over the quality and treatment of such beloved characters. Justice League is the result of years of waiting and plagued with massive script issues, filming setbacks, a director change, and a costly fifty percent reshoot. But the filmmakers pushed on and fought against an onslaught of negativity and problems. Glad to say, after all is said and done, Justice League is a very enjoyable movie: bright, fun, filled with heart, humor and hope. If you don’t look too close, that is.
