Blush

Blush

| February 8, 2017

From all appearances, Blush would seem to be a coming of age lesbian drama about two Jewish high school girls, Naama (Sivan Noam Shimon) and Dana (Jade Sakori), exploring their sexuality along with drugs, alcohol, and the Tel Aviv night life.  Actually, I found all of this to be secondary to the main story line […]

Bones: Season 11

| January 25, 2017

I used to watch Bones in its first season.  Being a fan of David Boreanaz on Angel and Buffy: The Vampire Slayer, I wanted to see what else he could do and his role here as Booth, a charming FBI agent was a nice contrast to the brooding, tormented vampire Angel, while not being as […]

The Disappointments Room

The Disappointments Room

| December 26, 2016

The creators of this film must have been absolutely fearless of bad reviews when the decided to put the word disappointment right in the title.  The bad reviews really write themselves at that point.  On Twitter, after watching the film, I sent out something along the lines of “it turns out the real disappointments room […]

Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story

Stagecoach: The Texas Jack Story

| December 26, 2016

If you like westerns, this movie should have everything you’re looking for.  A grizzled hero with a tormented past, a plucky sidekick, gun fights, camping under the stars, horse-riding, blood, and sand.  I always resisted the western genre, but recently have come across many westerns that I thoroughly enjoy.  It turns out that I was […]
