Are You My Queen?(Feb 25, 2021) When I saw her enter the music bar, I was already glued. Didn' talk to her though.

Movie Review: I, Tonya (2017)(Feb 3, 2021) I remember Tonya Harding as the first female olympic skater who nailed the first ever, Triple Axle in figure skating history. As great as that feat was, it was eclipsed by the infamous 'leg breaking' of Nancy Kerrigan by Tonya and her crew, to gain competitive advantage in the olympics. This movie attempts to shed new light into that human drama.....more »»
