Critical MeMe

Time spent watching films, even crappy ones, is time well-spent.

    These aren't comments on ALL of the movies through which I've cried, yawned, laughed, and rolled my eyes, but just about everything I've seen since early 2002 is here plus a few from earlier. Post dates reflect my screening & parenthetical dates are the year of US release (aka Oscar eligibility).
    Yeah, a movie review blog isn't very original. But originality is overrated. Just ask Michael Bay.

Amy (2015)

Takeaways:

  • Some parents are toxic and it should be encouraged/applauded when a child cuts such a parent  out of their life. I’m guessing that most of Amy’s issues could’ve been avoided if she’d had a decent father figure. But, since she didn’t, she should’ve been encouraged to get a decent therapist so she could stop looking to other men (managers, bodyguards, her husband) to fill that role in her life. 
  • Paparazzi should be outlawed. Professional photographers should have to stay 100 feet away from their subjects at all times. 
  • Tony Bennett is a truly decent man.
