Fire Island

Happy Pride 2022! Hulu is celebrating with the premiere of “Fire Island.” This film is written by and stars Joel Kim Booster and features Bowen Yang and Margaret Cho. It’s a very funny romantic comedy that was so sweet at the end I cried. The cinematography is fantastic, the lighting team did a great job! […]

Good Timing with Jo Firestone

As the pandemic raged on, Jo Firestone bravely led a class of senior citizens to the stage. The resulting 2pm standup comedy airs on the Peacock app and is very much worth watching. It’s hilarious, sweet, and life affirming. We all know that senior citizens have the raunchiest sense of humor and Jo encourages her […]

Wonder Woman 1984

The beginning and end of Wonder Woman 1984 reduced me to an absolute puddle of tears. A strong young girl’s ambition is guided, never belittled. She is allowed to compete unabated. Fairness is the only rule. The history of Wonder Woman is honored too. Just because the lasso has passed from one woman to another […]

Call My Agent

Call My Agent is a fun, fast paced dramatic satire of the entertainment industry. The main characters work together in an A-list talent agency. It’s written in French and subtitled into English, which convinced me that I speak fluent French (I do not.) The characters are genuinely lovable because of their deep flaws and deeper […]

Little Women

Five years ago I was an Associate Producer for a reality TV company reading about the Sony Pictures hack.  I looked up to Amy Pascal as one of the few big time women in the movie business as her emails were opened wide for the world to see.  Tonight I sat right across from her […]

Marvel Some Avengers

Today I stayed inside all day and watched Marvel movies: Avengers: Age of Ultron, Iron Man Three, Thor: Dark World and Marvel’s The Avengers.  Unwashed, uninterrupted, almost never leaving my bed just like a good nerd should.  Ever since I saw Avengers Infinity War in the movie theatre I’ve been reading a ton of fan theories […]

The Incredible Jessica James

The highly anticipated New York City based Netflix original indie film “The Incredible Jessica James” is finally out, and it is delightful.  Sweet, insightful, intelligent and topical it moves along with bits of whimsy and fantasy blown in every so often.  Chris O’Dowd is a personal favorite of mine so I am so happy he […]


Saw the new Ghostbusters on opening night!! I’ve never seen a movie at the theatre where people clapped about 10 times during the show, when gear or familiar cast members appear. I think it is a great success and a fun movie to watch anytime. My only regret is that it won’t come out on […]
