Watch And Talk

Watching a feature film or a TV mini-series is fun. So is talking about it. These reviews will provide things to talk about.
Some movies have a twist that is best experienced before it is explained. Since I seldom write about such movies, most of these reviews will cover an entire film. However when it is inappropriate to learn about the ending before seeing the film, I will put any spoiler at the end of my review and mark it very clearly.
