Never had I allowed a documentary to move me as much as I have in the Mr. Rogers bio-doc, Won’t You Be My Neighbor. Although, one could argue that I had no choice in the matter. Read More »

My Top Ten Films of 2017
Another late Top Ten list, but I wanted to watch as many potential #ConTENders as possible before I made my final tally. Then, I found myself with more work in television than ever before. And yet, I STILL missed some big films. But, we will get into that soon enough. Catch up with my Top 15 of 2015, and my Top Ten of 2016 if you’d like.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri #ConTENders 2017
Can Martin McDonagh do no wrong? Or maybe the better question is can Frances McDormand do no wrong? I went into Three Billboards Outside of Ebbing, Missouri knowing practically nothing. I knew that Frances McDormand had been getting a lot of Oscar buzz, that this film was directed by Martin McDonagh, and that three billboards may be involved (hey, to be fair many indie films don’t necessarily evoke their titles).
And I wasn’t let down. What I know now after coming out of the film is that Frances will most certainly win her category at this year’s Oscars, Sam Rockwell will win for Best Supporting Actor, and a two-hour film can transcend its runtime and stay in your mind for days.
The Disaster Artist #ConTENders 2017
During one of my many days working as a Production Assistant on American Horror Story, another PA asked everyone an informal poll question: What’s most important to you? A lot of people said family, financial security, or love. My answer was the same reason I came out to Los Angeles in the first place: happiness. Thousands of people come here every year in hopes of attaining happiness and The Disaster Artist, is about Tommy Wiseau’s version of that: The American Dream.
Kong: Skull Island #ConTENders 2017
*Minor story spoilers ahead*
In a world where the blockbuster is all capes and sorcery, Kong: Skull Island aims to bring the spotlight back to the old monster movies of yesteryear. And that is why it’s one of my 2017 #ConTENders.
Logan – #ConTENders 2017
Can an alternate one-off superhero movie be any good? Can–
YES. Yes, it can. Logan is amazing.
I’ve been the biggest X-Men fan since I watched the 90s cartoon show and then first got my grubby little mitts on a special issue of What If? Specifically, issue #9 (Volume 2).
And Logan plays out like a movie version of “What If?” Logan is loosely tied to the rest of the series and is drastic in theme and tone. The film is best summed up as a post-apocalyptic western with mutants.

My Top Ten Films of 2016
It’s that time of year again (or rather it’s long overdue)! Where I take my favorite films of the year, and arbitrarily order them to my liking for all of you to read. I’m quite needy, right? Not only that, but they’re never as easy as one might expect them to be, and 2016 was no exception.
Once again, like the Top 15 of 2015, this list is a collection derived from both the caliber of the films and how they impacted me on a personal level.
