What You Should See


That’s about all there is to say about this weekend’s new movie reviews.  Once Oscar hopeful Bohemian Rhapsody, the Queen biopic, isn’t exactly knocking it out of the park critically (though I’ll still probably see it eventually), The Nutcracker and the Four Realms just doesn’t look very good and will likely be a tough sell compared to most Disney live-action fairytale movies, Nobody’s Fool breaks the the trend of Tyler Perry movies not showing theatrically here in Edmonton that I’d been such a fan of, and What they Hadwell, that looks okay, but it’s not exactly a screamer of a must see movie.

In other, far more interesting news, however, it’s the Rainbow Visions Film Festival this weekend (started Thursday actually), Edmonton’s premier LGBTQ film festival now in its fourth year, and while the organizers could use some work on their website coding (like proper use of the title tag), the fest itself looks great, with some pretty interesting-looking and thought-provoking films on the schedule:

The Happy Prince

Scotty and the Secret History of Hollywood

Trans Youth

Light in the Water


Half the Picture

Studio 54

Edie Windsor:  To a More Perfect Union

Man Made

The Fruit Machine


And speaking of a thoughtful approach to things that have always been a part of our everyday life even if certain segments continue to try to deny their existence and/or importance, I’ll just go ahead and remind you it’s November now.  Maybe time to put on your snow tires?  Or maybe finally buy snow tires this year?  I know that has nothing to do with movies, but they will help you get to the movies.  Just sayin’.
