Giant Little Ones has been on the suggestion list on Crave for quite some time. It didn't really appeal to me because I had never heard of it. Fortunately, it is a Canadian film and it had made a big buzz at the Toronto Film Festival. I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into but I was trusting the critics on this one.
There has been much ado over the movie, Noah.
Where did I hear that voice? Who is calling my name?
Despite its age, Aaron Ben-Ze’ev’s book The Subtlety of Emotions (2001) largely aids the reader in identifying and observing emotions around them, particularly the ways in which they cluster. As a matter of fact, reading its second part has encouraged me to consider examples found in some of my favourite entertainment media that help me better understand the commentaries they are making, whether they are open to interpretation or completely intentional.
Brooklyn Nine-Nine has been a consistently funny series. I found that they really elevated their level of stories in the last few seasons. There has been a sense of change with each proceeding season. Season 7 still has a lot of the bite that the previous seasons had but I found that they lacked a little compared to the tremendous last few seasons. Still as a standalone season it wasn't too bad so long as you know all the backstory behind each character.
Ryan Murphy's "Hollywood," is a new Netflix mini-series that aired on May 1st, and tells the story of small cast of characters who are trying to make their dreams come true in Hollywood in the years after World War II. It's not historically accurate, in that it imagines the Hollywood the filmmaker wants to exist, and not the one that actually exists. There isn't really anyway to talk about this show without offering spoilers, so be ware that there will be some in this post.
Always be careful about what you tell people. You never know what lies will come back to haunt you.
