      Reservation Dogs     A wonderful new indigenous comedy is making waves on Hulu. Starring such veteran actors as Zahn McClarnon and Gary Farmer, this refreshing show is about a group of Native American teens and their days and nights at home on their reservation in Oklahoma. Bored, tired of the bad things that go on there, and to some extent, ready to get the hell away for good, the kids stick together, making the best of the worst, and making the viewers die laughing, begging for more. Here is a trailer for the show:     The magic of this film comes from the fact that it’s an…

      Review of The Guilt Trip     Seth Rogen fans got an extra special treat when he teamed up with the goddess Barbara Streisand as a mother/ son pair in the hysterically funny film The Guilt Trip. You can watch the side-splitting funny trailer here:     In the film, Rogen plays Andy Brewster, an extremely intelligent under achiever who has more education than accomplishments. He’s spent every penny of his inheritance to invent, and produce his so-called wonder cleaning product, ScieoClean- and doesn’t understand why nobody is buying it. He’s chronically single, lives in a lousy apartment, and doesn’t even have any friends. Not only that, he’s chronically…

      Review of The 13th Warrior This beautiful film opens in the splendor of the ancient Middle East and we find our hero, Ahmad ibn Fahdlan, cast far away from home for having an affair with a married woman. He is banished for having an affair with a king’s wife to the land of what is called the home of the “barbarians” aka the Norsemen- Odin’s men, pagan Heathens! He and his hosts are told by a holy woman 13 men must go to the aid of Kind Hrothgar- yeah ANOTHER Hollywood take on the epic Beowulf- and the 13th Warrior will be no Northman. As a daughter of Odin,…

      Review of My 600 Pound Life Bright Blessings! The show I am reviewing addresses sensitive topics: body image, health, and the identity all of this creates. Magically, it addresses transformation, and the fact magic is a process that takes time. It’s not flinging one spell, uttering a few words, or “putting the energy out to the Universe” and then going off and forgetting about it. My 600 Pound Life streams on Hulu, and my husband and I have watched several episodes. Multiple individuals open up to share their struggles, and successes with the public. Some allow people to see them nude. They allow camera crews into their everyday personal…

      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. Lucas is…
