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 and trailer previews 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!

Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings

Shang-Chi is a new origin chronicle that further expands Marvel Cinematic Universe’s diverse hero landscape. Simu Liu is outstanding as Shang-Chi. He brings artful emotion to ordinary scenes, and beautiful martial arts skills in his defensive encounters. Shang-Chi has a believable and intelligent story arc that reaches back through history, providing a foundation to buildContinue reading “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings”

The Guilty

The Guilty

It is interesting to learn that The Guilty with Jake Gyllenhaal is a remake of the Danish film Den Skyldige, made just a few years ago. I don’t know why someone would turn around and make an American version of the same movie that quickly, but here it is. The film opens on officer JoeContinue reading “The Guilty”
