movie therapy and more

I have been a fan of movies and filmmaking for as long as I can remember. I believe most of us are, and that movies give us a lot to talk about. While I don’t consider myself a professional movie critic, I did have a brief role as an on-camera movie reviewer in college. I also stumbled upon a gig judging key art awards once (still don’t know how that happened), and hosted many movie clubs. It is my best practice to see films in the theater as intended. Now that covid restrictions are a little more lenient, I’m back to my weekly #movietherapy.

I’m also committed to more considerate streaming viewings of independent films that may not have the budget or producers to launch in theaters. Do you have a favorite I should see? Let me know!

What comes next is an addictive, eye-catching journey of praise and appreciation, along with a second screen experience.
