Watch out for bears when you go camping. Seriously.
I've heard good things about Spectral but I've always glossed over it when it would show up on my Netflix feed. It's a movie that came out back in 2016 and I've been watching pretty much all of Netflix's Sci-Fi movies lately so I thought I'd give it a try.
Life for Olivia Davis (Katie Leclerc) has never been the same since her and her husband Harry's (Jeff Schine) attempt at starting their family ended with them losing their baby. Now six months later, Olivia appears to be trying to move forward with her life, even as the loss of her daughter still weighs on her mind. It's then that Olivia is introduced to Brooke Marsden (Victoria Barabas), the wife of Harry's new boss Glen (Todd Cahoon) and the mother of their infant daughter Sienna--who was born the same night Olivia and Harry's baby died.
Don’t ever let life hold you back. Sometimes you just have to dance after your dreams.
I have to admit this movie deceived me. I was scrolling through Netflix to find a good disaster movie to watch and I saw How It Ends. It looked pretty similar to the Rock's San Andreas movie but I was hoping for aliens.
As I am writing this the whole world is under isolation due to the global pandemic we're experiencing. I needed something to watch that would uplift me so I perused through Netflix and the movie Full Count kept on popping up. All it mentioned was that it was a sports drama. Usually that's something I really like because they're usually formulaic inspirational movies so I decided to give it a try. Little did I know, this movie was a little bit of a curve ball.
Escape from Alcatraz is surprisingly based on a true story. I honestly had no idea. When I saw this come up on Netflix I was surprised because it was the number 1 movie that Netflix kept recommending me to watch. I guess the algorithms work because I watched it eventually.
You’ve Got Mail follows two individuals who meet in an anonymous AOL chat room. Kathleen Kelly (Meg Ryan) is a book lover who inherited her indie children’s book shop and Joe Fox (Tom Hanks) is a business man who is building a large indigo-like bookshop just around the corner from her.
As soon as she saw the beautiful home on 1128 Maple Drive, aspiring architect Jules Grant (Maiara Walsh) fell in love with the magnificent house and convinced her husband Josh (John DeLuca) that it would be the perfect candidate for their new house flipping project. While Josh was initially apprehensive, both Grants find themselves charmed by the beautiful house and go to work remodeling it with the help of Josh's work friend Bliss Leary (Brooke Butler) and interior designer Morgan Dyer (Eve Mauro).
One of the last live theatre experiences I was fortunate to have, before the Pacific Northwest self-quarantine process was implemented, was Dominique Morisseau’s Pipeline (2017), staged at Portland Playhouse. Not only was the play itself engaging, powerful, and a vital piece of storytelling for our time – but the poem that is interwoven throughout the script also affected me viscerally; that poem is We Real Cool (1959), by Gwendolyn Brooks.
