An interview with Mike Mills about C’mon C’mon

Just watched this movie (⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️) and it was soul filling with lovely, quiet performances and emotion. Been trying to devour more about it and this interview helped expand the concepts.

Jean-Pierre Jeunet (director of Amélie!) has a new sci-fi movie coming out in February on Netflix. It looks colorful and fun.

Robtober 21

Each year Rob Weychert schedules new-to-him horror movies for each day of the month. On this year's list is Magic with Anthony Hopkins that both terrified me as a child and inspired me to get a ventriloquist doll.

Beginners (2010)

With the passing of Christopher Plummer I'm asking friends if they'd ever seen Beginners. It's such a very good movie, and the descriptions of it fail to capture what the movie is really about. (A little bit of everything.)

About Time (2013)

I think this movie is really quite endearing and very good. Best watched without reading too much about it or watching a trailer. If you like sweet love stories with a bit of a twist, rent it. (Sadly not streaming anywhere at the moment)
