People went crazy giving this film positive or negative reviews according to their political beliefs. The movie isn't political at all. Let's discuss!

"The Abyss" Directed by James Cameron, Starring Ed Harris & Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio

8/14/2019
More
The second of Mr. Cameron's hidden films only available for streaming on Cinemax! This movie is excellent but a bit too slow paced for a late night movie party. “The Abyss” is best fit for viewing on a lazy solo afternoon when you can really get into the story.

"True Lies" Starring Jamie Lee Curtis & Arnold Schwarzenegger, Directed by James Cameron

One of the most popular films of the 1990's has been banished to VHS, DVD, and Cinemax streaming. You cannot rent nor buy this film anywhere. Does it REALLY deserve the reclusive status and misogynistic claims? Films like American Beauty (underage actor’s scene), White Chicks (dressing as Hispanic men), and Tropic Thunder (blackface) have not disappeared from sale. Plenty of films have national security storylines. Why is this movie hidden?

I Pretended to Be A Man Applying for Jobs and Proved Sexism In Media Is Alive

7/16/2019
More
As I wrote today on my website regarding using a fake men's name to apply for freelance journalism jobs: "In the recent months, I used a man’s name applying to the same places I once asked for work under my real female name. Shocker! People were more respectful to me as the male alias...My experiment proves sexism is alive and well. The #metoo movement camouflages it, but it exists and shall exist well beyond my lifetime. Because I apply under a female name, I am undeserving of employment."

Paul Rudd's first big dramatic role was great. What happened with the production? What separates this film from a standard Best Picture contender?

Aside from the FX and Daft Punk film score, this movie existed solely for money, right?

"Transformers" Spinoff "Bumblebee" Starring Hailee Steinfeld, Directed by Travis Knight

4/10/2019
More
The film franchise gets a new twist becoming a "girly" movie, a response to criticism towards the original movies. I talk about how different the movie is, which moviegoers will like it, what I expect for future "Transformers," and at the end, decide to reveal my heart's desire to make an animated "Transformers" series that takes things as seriously as a live action film might. If I haven't died by the time you hear this episode in another century, never getting the chance to do so.

Director Lukas Dhont found success at Cannes with "Girl," but the rest of the world is divided on the film's interpretation of a trans teen girl's story.

A women's empowerment film within science fiction that doesn't show women doing, well, anything empowering or adventurous.
