Netflix’s Locke and Key

There’s been lots of hype lately about “Locke and Key,” one of Netflix’s newest thriller series. Especially given Netflix’s new Top 10 feature, it seems like lots of people are watching it. At first, I understood the hype. The first episode is creepy, and introduces a seemingly-complex story that is sure to be exciting andContinue reading “Netflix’s Locke and Key”

The Lodge

If you are a horror fan, you NEED to catch “The Lodge” while it’s still in theaters. It’s still on at Regal Opry and Regal Green Hills for the remainder of the week if you’re in Nashville. “The Lodge” is the same raw, haunting style that you see in “Hereditary” and “Midsommar,” and I’d rankContinue reading “The Lodge”

Onward

This preview just did not really speak to me, but I couldn’t figure out why…. I’m not a huge fan of mythological adventure, the characters aren’t as cute as Pixar’s normal characters, maybe something else, I wasn’t too sure.  But when I got the chance to attend an advance screening of the film, I tookContinue reading “Onward”

Downhill

               I’m not sure you can find this movie in theaters anymore, but that’s okay.  You aren’t missing anything.  With Will Ferrell and Julia Louis-Dreyfus as lead characters, I (at first) thought it was very strange that this movie did not get much press.  Quirky preview, (pretty) big names, why aren’t they advertising this asContinue reading “Downhill”

Meet Me in St. Louis

If you’re looking for a nice weekend getaway from Nashville, St. Louis is a great place to go!  If you’re looking for more mainstream touristy options, the Arch, any sporting event, the Budweiser factory, or one of the countless (free!) museums are great options– even the zoo is free!  But, if you’re looking to getContinue reading “Meet Me in St. Louis”

Portrait of a Lady on Fire

With the impressive showing of the South Korean film Parasite at the Oscars and other various awards shows this season, I want to speak this into existence for 2020: Foreign films need to be more mainstream. We are blessed in Nashville to have several theaters that show foreign films on a regular basis, so theyContinue reading “Portrait of a Lady on Fire”

The Rhythm Section

A vague, catchy title, a trio of A (minus) list actors, and an action-filled trailer: what could go wrong? Well, it turns out, a lot. . . Blake Lively plays a struggling twenty-something who is trying to accept her new reality. Three years prior to the opening scene, her entire family died in a planeContinue reading “The Rhythm Section”
