My Thoughts on Christopher Robin the Movie

Earlier this week I went with my kids to see the movie Christopher Robin – or what my kids called “the Winnie the Pooh movie”. Of course no spoilers here, but I will say that while my kids enjoyed the movie as a piece of entertainment, the Christopher Robin movie was very meaningful to me […]

At the Movies; My Three Favourite Comedies

A couple of weeks ago I did a podcast about my three favourite comedy movies and unless you are one of the six people in North America who listened to that episode of my podcast, you probably missed it. Of course, like any list of “bests” these are just my thoughts and opinions. Clearly this […]

Children of God; Go See It

This evening I attended a screening of the movie Children of God. The show is part of the Vancouver Queer Film Fest. My reaction? Wow. Simply wow.
