TV Review – Jane The Virgin

The minute I started watching “Jane The Virgin” I was hooked.

It should not be considered as “fluff” or guilty pleasure. It is a masterpiece in creating a show that is both dramatic and funny by touching and discussing issues such as faith, immigration, abortion, sex and parenting.

Film Review – The Children Act

I’m a HUGE fan of Emma Thompson and in my book she is infallible. Add to it Stanley Tucci, it would always be a good reason to watch a movie.

Though “The Children Act” has all the elements of a great movie, somehow I wasn’t moved by it.

TV Review – For All Mankind

I love What-If movies and alternate timeline stories with all its complications. For All Mankind has a brilliant premise and the execution of it is done incredibly well.

The show presents an alternative history whereby the Soviets won the race to space and were the first ones to land on the moon.

TV Review – The Morning Show

To be honest, I’ve watched only 3 episodes, but had no urge to continue watching.

The Morning Show is a proof that no matter how much money you throw on a show, and how many big stars and great actors and actresses you get involved, if your message is not clear the results would be mediocre.

Film Review – Rocketman

I have a confession to make… I LOVE musicals, maybe it’s the romantic in me, maybe it’s my age.

It seems that musicals about music groups are an IN thing. However, nothing can be as different as Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman. Rocketman holds nothing back.

TV Review – Unbelievable

Unbelievable is masterpiece of writing and performances.

It is one of the best feminist crime show I have ever seen. It has amazing display of the power of feminine energy and women and the difference it can create, without falling into your typical “look at women being badasses” way that Hollywood often does feminism.

Film Review – Yesterday

Even though people might think the movie is about What-If you woke up one day and your icon people were not known, or about another love story, for me the movie was all about a debate on what would you rather be happy or successful.

What I loved was the solution written into the script.

Film Review – Elysium

The only reason I would watch sci-fi movies is if it puts some light on current affairs and show where we could go.

When I read, that Elysium is about the gap between the rich and the poor and gives a futuristic commentary on the immigration debate, I was intrigued. Besides I can never resist anything that would have Matt Damon and Judie Foster on it.

Film Review – Juliet, Naked

I like goofy rom-com, but lately it’s hard to come by one that would satisfy both my romantic soul and my intellectual self. So, when once in a while I get to watch a funny, warm and smart one it’s a night to celebrate.

Juliet, Naked, is a movie about second chances, hope, and redemption from a life of missed opportunities, loneliness and boredom.
