30-Day Movie Challenge: Day 17

Day 17: The Best Movie You Saw During the Last Year Time to stretch the prompt, aka cheat a little. If you combine suspense and crime and add dark humor and race consciousness, you get my favorite movie of the... Continue Reading →

30-Day Movie Challenge: Day 16

Day 16: The Last Movie You Saw in Theaters Aside from this prompt reading as if I'm writing from Valhalla or some other afterlife, it's a fun one for me because Nashville has the Belcourt, a non-profit theater that shows... Continue Reading →
