With awards season upon us I find myself already being disappointed by the nominees. Many great performances and movies are being overlooked (as usual) and rather than being frustrated I’ve decided to do my part in making sure they’re recognized.
What better way to do that than creating my own awards? Continue reading 1st Annual Bib’s Corner Movie Awards (shortlists)
The idea of the Mavericks making a trade has led to much confrontation among MFFL’s. While some say we need a big body (including the front office according to Woj), others say we need a defensive wing. Then you have those that say that we don’t need to make a move at all. They either bring up the ghost of Rondo past, or the fear of ruining team chemistry. Continue reading Should the Mavs make a trade?
Waves has a strong cast, headlined by Sterling K. Brown and rising star Kelvin Harrison, Jr. The first story is about toxic masculinity but both stories highlight how a lack of communication within a family can be devastating. Continue reading Waves Review: 2 stories about love and family
Before the season I predicted the Mavs would make the playoffs but I had them in the 7-8 range. However with some of the top teams underperforming for different reasons (Blazers and Warriors injuries, Jazz chemistry) the Mavs looked to be in even better position to make the playoffs, perhaps a 4-5 seed. It appears Luka has other plans, though and has carried the Mavs all the way to the 2 seed one fourth of the way through the season. Continue reading Mavs 1st Quarter Report Card
I watch a lot of movies and I would be lying if I said that I didn’t forget many things but the opening 5 minutes of The Last Black Man in San Francisco are the most powerful opening 5 minutes I can remember seeing. Continue reading The Last Black Man in San Francisco review: Poignant and beautiful
Brittany Runs a Marathon starts out strong with great humor and an inspiring story. Then, when things appear to be looking up for Brittany she devolves and hurts the people around her. This killed the good vibes and simply made me dislike her the rest of the movie. Continue reading Brittany Runs a Marathon review: An unlikeable lead
I went into Parasite blind so I was incredibly shocked by what I saw. Bong Joon Ho has to be up for every writing and directing award for his work here. Even when I knew things weren’t going to go well I felt secure and when he took that away it left me devastated. By the end I was hurt but the message had been received. Continue reading Parasite review: Funny, Real, then Dark
You will laugh and you will cry. Taika Waititi’s Nazi Germany satire Jojo Rabbit manages to make you laugh through most of its runtime while still delivering serious messages throughout. Even when things get heavy you can’t help but enjoy this movie. Continue reading JoJo Rabbit packs a punch despite the humorous elements
Rattlesnake is a fine movie to watch when you have nothing else to watch. There’s not a lot to discuss when it’s over but there are some good tense moments and some good horror moments as well. You also do go on a bit of a ride with Ejogo’s character as she tries to work through her predicament. I mostly just didn’t like being toyed with at the end. Continue reading Rattlesnake is a solid movie with an annoying ending
Doctor Sleep fills in the gaps from 1980 to 2019 so we know how Danny’s life has gotten where it is now. Then, it expands the world of The Shining masterfully before giving us what feels like a superhero showdown with real stakes. The Haunting of Hill House meets Logan. Continue reading Doctor Sleep is a different kind of sequel
