Chrysanthemum

Chrysanthemum is a funny and honest school story about teasing, self-esteem, and acceptance to share all year round. Written and illustrated by Kevin Henkes, the nationally bestselling and celebrated creator of Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse, Owen, and Kitten’s First Full Moon, Chrysanthemum is a don’t-miss classic, especially for back to school. Chrysanthemum thinks her name is absolutely perfect-until her first day of school. “You’re named after a flower!” teases Victoria. “Let’s smell her,” says Jo. Chrysanthemum wilts. What will it take to make her blossom again? This popular picture book has sold more than a million copies and was named...

Flora & Ulysses

Directed by Lena Khan. With Matilda Lawler, Alyson Hannigan, Ben Schwartz, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth. The adventures of a young girl and a squirrel with superpowers. A movie that wears it’s heart on it’s sleeve with slow narration from the young actress, so at times it feels like a read along, but that’s less of a complaint than it is just a statement of what the movie is. Ben Schwartz as the father seems like great casting, and Alyson Hannigan as the mother is fantastic, though I feel a weird sort of insult in having one of my teenage crushes playing...

Kim’s Convenience

With Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, Jean Yoon, Andrea Bang, Simu Liu. The misadventures of a Korean-Canadian family running a convenience store. Four seasons in a single weekend, I started watching it to have something on in the background, but then something funny happened, I got pulled into the show and started caring about the characters, all of which had significant character development, more than I think I’ve ever seen in a show like this. First impressions is that it’s another situational comedy, but it’s a much deeper and dramatic series than I initially thought it was going to be. There was...

Blue Is the Warmest Colour

Directed by Abdellatif Kechiche. With Léa Seydoux, Adèle Exarchopoulos, Salim Kechiouche, Aurélien Recoing. Adèle’s life is changed when she meets Emma, a young woman with blue hair, who will allow her to discover desire and to assert herself as a woman and as an adult. In front of others, Adèle grows, seeks herself, loses herself, and ultimately finds herself through love and loss. There’s a saying from politics, to paraphrase: ‘you’ll know it when you see it’, and buddy, I have seen it. I’m not saying that to detract or to titillate (teehee), but to prepare anyone that goes in,...

Monster Hunter

Directed by Paul W.S. Anderson. With Milla Jovovich, Tony Jaa, Ron Perlman, T.I.. When Lt. Artemis and her loyal soldiers are transported to a new world, they engage in a desperate battle for survival against enormous enemies with incredible powers. Feature film based on the video game by Capcom. This is certainly a movie that was released, and it was definitely based on a video game franchise. I’m not intimately familiar with the gaming franchise, but what I do know is that you play a character that hunts monsters. This movie has monsters, and there’s plenty of shootin’ and hackin’,...

Cinderella (TV Movie 1997) – IMDb

Directed by Robert Iscove. With Brandy Norwood, Bernadette Peters, Veanne Cox, Natalie Desselle Reid. Although mistreated by her cruel stepmother and stepsisters, Cinderella is able to attend the royal ball through the help of a fairy godmother. My wife made some direct comparisons of ‘Bridgerton’ and this show with how little they cared about how race in the originally all white roles. Turns out that it doesn’t really matter at all if they’re black, white, or asian, and it was a fun story from beginning to end. It was nice to see Whoopie in the midst of the high of...

Coming to America

Directed by John Landis. With Eddie Murphy, Paul Bates, Garcelle Beauvais, Feather. An extremely pampered African Prince travels to Queens, New York, and goes undercover to find a wife that he can respect for her intelligence and will. With a sequel well on it’s way to Amazon Prime, they’re pushing the UHD original film pretty hard on their streaming service, to prime the royal pump. The movie still holds up very well, if not for the indentured sex slaves and gratuitous nudity of (admittedly beautiful) women that didn’t have the option to not sleep with their king. In it’s defense,...
