• It's FINALLY fall, and I just watched two scary movies in theaters, bought a pumpkin scented candle, and wore a flannel. Tis the season to be cozy and also afraid.For those of you who don’t know, I very recently saw IT Chapter 2 with Leo and Stu. Honestly, it wasn’t that bad! That’s because I had my eyes covered for a solid 60% of the movie! See, it’s easy to sit...

  • Why am I the only one who liked Goldfinch? But seriously, Goldfinch (so far) has really poor reviews. It’s been criticized in every direction - the acting, the storytelling, the pacing. It’s even getting PANNED for being too similar to the book. I’ll admit it, I haven’t read the book. Is that why I liked it?  In my opinion, trailers looked great. The synopsis sounded interesting.

  • What's going on, everyone!  I know it's been eons since I've written a blog post, I've been up to my neck in all sorts of goodies. In the meantime, I had the pleasure of speaking with the co-directors for the new movie The Peanut Butter Falcon. The movie stars Shia Lebouf, Dakota Johnson, and newcomer Zack Gottsegen.

  • I love the role that food and cooking can play in movies. Sometimes food can look delicious and other times it can make your skin crawl (looking at you, Hannibal). Either way, there’s a cosmic injustice about eating popcorn in the theater while the characters on screen chow down on something gourmet. In fact, after I watched Chef for the first time, I just HAD to go find a Cubano. ... I love the role that food and cooking can play in movies.

In my excitement for the movie, I’ve traversed the internet and found five things you didn’t know about Tarantino's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood - just to amp up our collective enthusiasm. Only Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt were allowed to read the final...
