Inch’Allah (2012)

This powerfully moving French film stars a young Canadian obstetrician, Chloe’ working in a women’s health clinic in the middle of two theatres of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. Chloe’ travels through a military checkpoint every day on her way to work and on her return home. She builds deep friendships with two women on opposite sides of the checkpoint, testing her sympathies and resolve to remove herself from the conflict around her.This film has a poignant message for its audience that translates across any language. 3 out of 5.

One of the solid reasons I can give you for watching this film is the stellar performance by the late James Gandolfini as Michael, a man marked for execution via teenaged assassins Violet & Daisy. The two girls work for Danny Trejo as a sort of twisted after-school job. They use this money to buy coveted “Barbie Sunday” designer dresses. It’s a troupe that is sure to make feminist blood boil, but it shows the deep conflict the girls have over killing seemingly kind and decent Michael for their creepy boss. 2 out of 5.

The long-awaited return of this dramatic Netflix original has been designed for ‘binge-watching’. Netflix added an extremely helpful Season 1 synopsis for an easy transition. HOC made history this past year for being the first non-cable series nominated for an Emmy, and took home three awards. High-stakes political drama and intense action make this a nail-biter that you might actually need to take a break from. 4 out of 5.

An Honest Immaculate Review

Immaculate, starring Sydney Sweeney (she/her) and directed by Michael Mohan (he/him), was a good movie. That being said, it did not blow my mind. The plot was predictable and the messaging was heavy-handed. However, I enjoyed it. I don’t think it will become the next cult classic, but it is worth the watch. MINOR SPOILERS […]

JoJo See-Ya Later

It is impossible to describe all of JoJo Siwa’s (she/her) controversies in one article, so to make a long story short, I am very tired of seeing her name in YouTube thumbnails and TikTok captions. While I will not deny that she has done a lot of good with her platform, such as speaking out […]
