Movie Review: The Boss

Movie Review: The Boss

From the time I signed up to take the review to the time it was to watch the film, I had completely and utterly forgot what the film was about and who was in it. With this stunning feat of memory loss, I had zero expectations about what I was going into, and that worked very nicely. Starring Melissa McCarthy as Michelle Darnell, we get a woman who has been down and out her whole life. Bounced around from home to home and back again, she was used to having no one to count on but herself, and for a really long time that worked for her. Michelle fought her way to the top and intended on staying there.Unfortunately, insider trading isn’t...

What to Expect from HBO Limited Series: Big Little Lies

The Australian novel of the same name, published by Liane Moriarty in 2014, is soon to make its debut on the small screen.  Big Little Lies has received plenty praise for its balance between the comical and the serious.

Westworld: Scenes of the Season

The first season of Westworld went off with quite a bang and continued the season with twists and turns and everything in between.

Bernard wants to know everything, access all his past “memories” to discover who he really is. Bernard gets the information after attempting to manipulate Ford. He refuses to give up in knowing...

Divorce Season One Finale: “Detente”

Divorce Season One Finale: “Detente”

Last week on Divorce, Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker) got a more cutthroat lawyer who wasted no time busting Robert’s (Thomas Haden Church) balls. Nick (Tracy Letts) and Diane (Molly Shannon) threw another party that went about as well at their first one. Sans gunfire this time at least. This week is the season finale and it starts with Robert continuing trying to get Funspace USA off the ground. Nick is finally behind him and trying to help Robert get the ball moving. But with Frances’ new killer attorney taking the ropes, any assets  Robert had access to are now kaput. In Robert’s busyness with the business and Frances...

Divorce: “Another Party”

Divorce: “Another Party”

Last week on Divorce, Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker) saw a job opportunity come and go when she couldn’t keep her divorce under control. Robert (Thomas Haden Church) was behaving erratically and being beyond affectionate with his kids. Of course, we find out he’s been taking his lawyer’s advice and juicing with testosterone. Probably not super healthy, but whatever he’s got to do to survive, right?  Which means going to church too, I guess. This week, Frances and Robert go head to head with their lawyers regarding taking care of the kids. What seems so appealing in Robert and his attention to the children is really...
