73rd Annual Tony Awards

The 73rd Annual Tony Awards happened last night. This is my favorite awards show because it is a celebration of the art form I grew up in and have worked in for most of my life. The Tonys offer a glimpse into one of the creative work for one of the best cities for theater. Is NYC the end all, be all? No, of course not. It is, through Broadway, the city that established itself as event viewing for a nationally broadcast awards show. Any opportunity to people have to experience theater is a great opportunity to get keep building support for this medium.

Pokemon Detective Pikachu Review (Film, 2019)

Pokemon Detective Pikachu poses an interesting challenge when it comes to a review. The film is incredibly well produced, but the actual bones of the film are not good. Even for a children’s film, the plot is pure nonsense. I enjoyed the film for what it was while also realizing the…creative limitations of the film.

Unicorn Store Review (Film, 2019)

Kit is not happy. She fails out of art school, moves back in with her overly protective parents, and winds up taking on a temp job just to reclaim any sense of respect in the world. Her dreams have always been considered unrealistic but no one bothered to tell her until she faced her first big failure. Yet somehow, the oldest dream she ever had is returning in a big way. Kit receives an invitation to a place called The Store that only sells one item: unicorns.

Us Review (Film, 2019)

I’m going to be forthright in this review. Us is great. Horror fans will find a lot of value in the film. While I will do my best to avoid spoilers for this film, I know from my own experience that I think the film is better enjoyed knowing as little as possible going in. Nothing beyond the initial concept is discussed in this review.

91st Academy Awards Reaction and Winners

The 91st Academy Awards happened last night. I cannot speak to the broadcast as I opted to dive into Umbrella Academy instead. Yes, a slick superhero series with some…issues in how it portrays anyone except for straight white men felt far more relaxing than a night of awards that could bring serious clout to some awful people. Based on the winners, I made the right choice for me. Still, I could not contain my disdain for the ceremony when I woke up and discovered the Best Picture winner.
