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

FANTASTIC BEASTS:
THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD

Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” is the second of five all new adventures in J.K. Rowling’s Wizarding World™.

At the end of the first film (SPOILERS) the powerful Dark wizard Gellert Grindelwald (Johnny Depp) was captured by MACUSA (Magical Congress of the United States of America), with the help of Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne). But, making good on his threat, Grindelwald escaped custody and has set about gathering followers, most unsuspecting of his true agenda: to raise pure-blood wizards up to rule over all non-magical beings.

Review: Twin Peaks – The Final Dossier

Review: Twin Peaks – The Final Dossier

We still have time for one more book review before the end of the year. And what a strange year 2017 has been. Careers in DC and Hollywood have been wiped out (by bad behavior that, let’s face it, really should have been dealt with a long time ago), the political world has been a straight up circus, there’s an object in space that scientists thought might possibly be a sign of extra-terrestrial life, and did you see how the last Oscars ceremony ended?

So what the heck, let’s embrace the weirdness and pick for our last book review of the year something from the strangest show of the year: Twin Peaks. The Final Dossier by Mark Frost may not resolve all my feelings of “WHAT THE ABSOLUTE HELL, LYNCH?” that the ending of Season 3 left me with, but it gives the reader a lot more info. It also answers quite a few questions about how the characters ended up where they were when the season started, with a tiny taste of what happened next.

Review – Dunkirk

The Golden Globe nominations are in (which tend to be an early indicator of what may get nominated for the Oscars) so this week guest writer TheNoShitMovieCritic has a review of one of the nominees for Best Drama Picture: Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk.

I waited a long time to finally add this one to the shelf collection, but to be fair; pound for pound, it’s just not as good as anticipated (hyped beyond delivery).

Review – Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond

This week guest columnist Luciana Rabelo has a look at Jim Carrey’s documentary Jim & Andy.

It’s difficult to know for sure if Jim Carrey truly speaks from the heart or if it is all part of a carefully put together script, but Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond – Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton certainly is an amazing surprise.
