Last night The Walking Dead aired its midseason finale, “Coda.” I, like many other television viewers, utilize technology (DVRs, video services online like Amazon and iTunes) to watch the latest episodes of my favorite shows at my leisure.

- Tell Me Who I Am, 2019 - ★★★½ November 19, 2019Uniquely structured doc about two twin men and a dark secret between them.

- Making Waves: The Art of Cinematic Sound, 2019 - ★★★ November 18, 2019Engaging doc about a part of filmmaking that can be overlooked by more casual viewers. A lot of good information and big names for the talking heads.

It would have been a 2.5 star rating but Anna Kendrick is charming e […]
- Beauty and the Beast, 1991 - ★★★★ November 17, 2019Incredible voice acting and absolutely stunning animation. Really great.
- Newsies, 1992 - ★★★½ November 17, 2019Impressive child acting, good music, very good set design. Good stuff.
- Tell Me Who I Am, 2019 - ★★★½ November 19, 2019
