The 2019 Writers Guild of America Awards have come and gone – and a handful of talented talents have taken home prestigious awards. The WGA Awards took place on Sunday, February 17, in two locations on the east and west coasts of the US, each with their own hosts, and were the final pit stop […]
If Beale Street Could Talk
When I saw Black Swan on its release in January 2011, I knew right then I’d seen my film of the year. I was so drawn in and immersed in it that I knew for sure I would not see another movie to equal it for the remaining twelve months. The same thing happened right […]
For the second part of my 10 year anniversary celebration, I am taking a look back at the top three movies from each year of my blog with a few thoughts: 2009 Let The Right One In The Hurt Locker Inglourious Basterds (The White Ribbon at 10 should have been higher on my list) 2010 […]
After nearly a whole year’s worth of screw-ups, terrible announcements, last-minute changes, and other controversial matters, the 91st Academy Awards are finally upon us. And as was with last year, I managed to see nearly all of the major contenders from last year in preparation for this one night. While there are more frontrunners this […]

Can Regina collect her Oscar now?
The Oscar season of this year has been pretty wild and unpredictable. At first, “A Star is Born” seemed to be the front runner, but then “Green Book” and “Bohemian Rhapsody” stole the show at the Golden Globe Awards, and then “Black Panther” triumphed at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, and then “The Favourite” and […]
THERE ARE A COUPLE OF ITEMS I have sealed in plastic bags, hoping they may become valuable someday. Neither of them was expensive; I think the most I spent was $6.00. One thing is a set of unusual stamps and the other is a coffee mug shaped like a character from a popular television show. When […]

In a bonus episode before the 91st Academy Awards, Caroline and Ashley review three Oscar nominated films: Vice, If Beale Street Could Talk, and Roma.
You guys!! The Academy Awards are NEXT Sunday! I absolutely love the month of February thanks to Valentine’s/Galentine’s, Jon and I’s halfiversary (it’s a thing), and the Oscar’s! Jon and I are self-proclaimed movie critics and we absolutely love seeing as many of the nominations as we can every year. Last year I decided to not […]
When is the last time the Oscars seemed like such a hot mess? First they make a lame choice in having Kevin Hart host, then Hart is called out for his past idiocy on social media and instead of just apologizing like an adult, becomes defensive and withdraws himself from the gig. Then the Academy […]
Last week Tharindu and I celebrated Valentine’s Day. Because February is so hectic with his birthday on the 8th, V-day on the 14th, my birthday on the 21st, we had tossed up the idea of pushing it forward to March in lieu of White Day (some South East Asian follow up from Valentine’s Day where […]
