I made the mistake by following those film up with “Dumplin’” on Netflix. While “Dumplin’” had all the ingredients that would make a film for my, person insecure with the...

"Unmothered" (Sans Maran) playing at Northwest Fest.

It is no secret that I prefer films that are not very marketable to general audiences. Sure, I can enjoy wasting my time with a Marvel film, falling for a Disney film, or just loosing myself to Hollywood schlock.

How Much is Enough? by Liam Leroux
How much is enough?  When it comes to the question of reparations one imagines whatever number you choose it’s inadequate.  Like the exchange at the end between Inigo Montoya and the six fingered man, “Offer me everything I ask for,” “All that and more,”  “I want my father back you...

The Oscars are dumb, except when they’re not, and I never want to watch them except this year I did, again.This did mean I watched Spike Lee’s speech live and it was good.  He seemed nervous, he even said don’t cut that *bleeped out* microphone.  I assume I knew what he said underneath ...

Obscure Horror Flicks worth mentioning... and a few not worth mentioning.
I have a sneaky suspicion that a large number of horror films this year will be called “The ‘Hereditary’ of 2019”.  It’s only February and I have heard this lazy and inaccurate assessment being over used by uninventive and misguided self proclaimed critics and marketing companies. While this...
