      Review of Little Evil   Bright Blessings, Film Lovers. I thought I’d do a horror since it’s October- Halloween month! This one is not scary really, but it is a horror comedy. It’s hilarious and deals with theme of evil, cults, and the individual will. Little Evil was released in 2017 and stars the illustrious Clancy Brown, the very funny Adam Scott, and the legendary Sally Field. Here is a trailer so you can see how great this is.     Gary meets the woman of his dreams, Samantha, and after a very short courtship, marries her and moves in with she and her five-year-old son, Lucas.

      Review of Stree     Bright Blessings Film Lovers!   If you have read many of my reviews, you know how much I love horrors! I simply can’t get enough of them. I find horror to be the most imaginative genre, and to have the most fun and surprises. I was pleasantly surprised by an amazing horror comedy from India , spoken in Hindi, of course, called Stree. Stree means Woman in Hindi, and it centers around the antics of Vicky, a tailor who works magic on clothes for women, and his bone brained friends, and how they find a way to end hauntings by the Stree. Here is…

      Review of The Bad News Bears 2005 Version     Bright Blessings, Film Lovers! I found another gem with magical lessons and this one is a remake of a beloved 1970’s movie that can never be forgotten: The Bad News Bears. Not for the easily offended, this one casts Billy Bob Thornton, and Greg Kinnear as sparring coaches, hellbent on proving to one another that THEY are the best little league baseball coach with the best players! Here is a trailer.     While this is considered to have bombed at the box office, and critics have called it a replica of the 1979 version, saying that was disappointing.…

      Indian Horse   Years ago, I was a tour guide at a place called The Olentangy Indian Caverns in Delaware, Ohio. It’s a small cavern, and so the tour script had to be good. We could not just take people on a LONG walk underground for an hour. You can walk the whole thing is five minutes- not counting the breathless climb back to the top! After being hired, the first thing we were given was our employee handbook, and tour script. We could not give tours until we demonstrated to a staff person we knew that script. I realized, after doing this for a few Summers on my…

      Review of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Bright Blessings, film lovers! This time I am reviewing a series Netflix has done three seasons of, and I have been told, are at least doing a fourth- The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina.

She gets a lot of pressure from family and mentors, all of whom seek to mold her THEIR way. Sabrina is not having it. Surprisingly mature and responsible for a teenager, she, along with family and friends, navigates the treacherous, and blissful world…

      Review of Little Miss Sumo   Bright Blessings, Film lovers!   I’ve always been a huge fan of Sumo Wrestling since watching the first match on TV I ever saw of it. In a country- America- where sports fans and athletes tear each other apart, and get into fights on the playing fields- it is downright refreshing to me to see the courtesy, pride, and poise Sumo Wrestlers exhibit. I have never seen a more polite, or regal sport. Tonight, I learned something about it, though. Traditionally, Sumo is for men only- but for many years, many little girls and women around the world have done Sumo wrestling, although…
