FlixChatter Review: CRUELLA (2021)

Though I grew up watching plenty of Disney films, somehow I barely remember the original animated movie of 101 Dalmatians. I also skipped the 1996 live-action version with Glenn Close as Cruella De Vil, who'd be enemy number one for PETA given her predilection for Dalmatian fur coat. Well, 25 years later we've got an …

Quick thoughts on Oscars 2017… and that crazy Best Picture mixup!

Well this is the first year where the Oscars almost escaped me… It's funny, there's a line that my lead character said in my Hearts Want script, 'I don't give a f*** about the Oscars…' Well, it seems his um, lack of enthusiasm seems to have rubbed off on me a bit. Suffice to say, …
