Where to begin with 2020? Way back in February when I saw Harrison Ford’s CGI-rific version of The Call of the Wild, there is no way I would have known that it was the last new movie I’d see in a theater for the rest of the year. When the..

2019 Oscar Nominees and Winners: The Full List

February 25, 2019–Well, everyone can breathe a sigh of relief that the Oscars survived intact this year.

2018 Oscar Nominees and Winners: The Full List

March 5, 2018–Well everyone, it’s a wrap! Thank goodness for everyone (except maybe the ratings) that there wasn’t another Oscar-level flub with an envelope mix-up like last year.

Linda’s Best of 2016

2016 will go down as a rollercoaster, shit-show of a year, whether in regards to the never-ending horrific headlines of violence both at home and abroad, to the astonishing year in politics, to the punch-in-the-gut unexpected deaths of beloved celebrities. 2016 was simply a bully.
