Pandemic-Set Films: Are They Worth It?

While studios figure out their film slates for 2021-2022, what they should not be focusing on are films that are set during a pandemic. Listen, I was attracted to the cast of Locked Down more so than the logline itself.  But in spite of this, my feelings after watching the film last week have only grown stronger.  I do not want to see any more pandemic-set films while living through a pandemic.  In case you’re living…

Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, and The Chaos

There’s something about the need to repeatedly return to Jurassic Park, Jurassic World, and and the chaos of Isla Nublar during the pandemic. I don’t know what it is about the films and the animated series that keeps drawing me back this year.  Maybe it’s my love of dinosaurs?  Or maybe it’s the fact that I’m so desperate for a vacation.  Outside of the shlep to Evanston for kosher food, I only go a quarter…

Warner Bros. An Open Letter After WW84 Rollout

Warner Bros. Pictures botched the theatrical and streaming rollout of Wonder Woman 1984 in one of the worst ways possible.

I make no secret of the fact that I am a transgender woman.  It’s something I’ve been open about since coming out to family and friends during 2015-2016.  I’ve come a long way since Mike DeCourcy profiled me in The Sporting News in November 2016.  But all of this…

MLB Needs To Shut Baseball Down

Following an outbreak on the Miami Marlins and positive tests for other teams, Major League Baseball needs to show leadership and shut the season down. What we need right now is leadership from MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred.  We’re not seeing leadership at all.  Going into the start of the season, it wasn’t even sure if the season would happen.  And now, it’s looking like the season should be shut down. You’re probably wondering why I’m…

To all the readers of Solzy at the Movies and those who follow my work on Cultured Vultures and The Young Folks, have a Happy Thanksgiving!
