The Glare Of The [Friday Night Lights]

My first exposure to Friday Night Lights (movie, book, and TV show) was through the responses from others who had seen the film or show (not many, if any, had read the book) and were heavily involved in football (some in Texas). Unexpectedly, this offered me a unique vantage point on the impact of the story, whichContinue reading “The Glare Of The [Friday Night Lights]”

Simply Bullshit [Fleabag] (Season 1)

Fleabag is the latest installment in the dark comedies the world finds more relatable than the sitcoms of the 90s to the early 2000s or the non-laugh track series of the 2010s.

The Soundtrack for [Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga]

I’m not sure if Eurovision is a good movie. I think I am supposed to know but often with comedies like this we need to wait and see how it sinks into culture via quotes and memorable scenes. I suspect it won’t (although I’m already seeing ‘Play “Jaja Ding Dong”’ memes) and therefore will not be aContinue reading “The Soundtrack for [Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga]”

Is [My Week With Marilyn] True?: Based on a true story

Michelle Williams is so jaw-droppingly amazing as Marilyn Monroe, that when the movie finally ends, and the credits roll, and you remember once again that this was a film and not a documentary, it is impossible not to ask whoever was sitting next to you, or murmur softly to yourself… Was that all true? It mayContinue reading “Is [My Week With Marilyn] True?: Based on a true story”
