My Favorite Movies of 2017

Wow, 2017 is over already?? How on Earth could this year have gone by so fast, and felt ten years long? It might have been a mess politically, but 2017 was actually a great year for movies, big and small.  Like every year, there were a wide variety of surprises, and I actually had a pretty hard time finalizing...

I was feeling... Continue Reading →
