The Big Lebowski

The Big Lebowski tethers on the premise of mistaken identity when Jeff "The Dude" Lebowski was mistaken for someone else and gets himself embedded in a mess that he has nothing to do with. This movie plays a lot into pop culture, especially with the iconic character played by Jeff Bridges. This movie brought together a string of varied personalities to produce what is a hilarious comedy.

Air Doll

When I first read the synopsis for Air Doll, I thought that it would at least have a similar vibe to ‘Lars and the Real Girl’; since it’s one of my favorites, I dove into this one with a positive outlook. I expected that the movie would either fall on a fantasy-type spectrum, or a philosophical study of humanity. While it does fall under the latter, it was still way off from my expectations. Contains spoilers.

Ever since the trailer first dropped, the live adaptation of a beloved Disney classic has been heavily marketed with tons of behind the scenes, features, and song numbers to boot.

However, did it meet expectations?

Thursday Movie Picks: Remakes/Sequels/Reboots I Want to See

Thursday Movie Picks is hosted by Wandering Through the Shelves. This week’s theme is about remakes/reboots/sequels. Hollywood hasn’t shied away from rebooting, remaking, or adding sequels to popular movies so it’s no longer a surprise when an existing property is getting a glitzy upgrade. I went with one pick for each (remake, sequel, reboot) and listed accordingly.
