Black Widow: The Family Web

Black Widow

Scarlett’s Natasha is a complicated character trying to make up for all the bad things in her past. Florence as little sister Yelena builds off that as well. She has a great mixture of regret and vulnerability hidden under a tough shell. You can feel her longing to have a family and a normal life, but with just enough whimsy to add some levity to the character.


Fear Street Part One: 1994 – A Tale of Two Cities

Fear Street Part One: 1994

I don’t know much about the source material, but I applaud this production for having the heroines be LGBTQ+ and for the budding romance between Kate and Josh who are an unlikely couple in a Hollywood movie. Simon’s pop talk near the end to Josh reinforcing that he is worthy of Kate and not to take her advances as just the heat of the moment, is a good lesson for those who struggle with low self-esteem and added a bit of soul to the film. It also showed a hidden depth that we had not seen in Simon.


The Tomorrow War: War is Hell

The Tomorrow War

The basic premise is exciting and give a new twist to the “Time Travel” sci-fi genre. It is fun to watch, and the action scenes are intense. The aliens are frightening and creepy and the CGI is well done. The acting is excellent for an action movie with Chris Pratt, Yvonne Strahovski and J.K. Simmons all turning out heart felt performances, although at times I think they go a bit over the top, and there are scenes that feel a bit forced in trying to get the audience to connect with characters instead of letting that happen naturally.


Loki: A Tale of Two Gods


Unfortunately, for a lot of people, this act is met with hostility and the fear of this keeps many people locked inside a life that is dark and depressing, with no real chance of love or self-acceptance.   I hope that Loki representing his true nature gives others the courage to live their lives honestly and that the truth they share is met with encouragement and love.
