Statistics #17: Animation/Shorts in 2016

Generally, two of the smaller film genres, but I hope that they can expand and become more recognized and talked about in years to come. It seems like that’s the direction for one of these, but not necessarily the other.

Review #23: Fences

Just how ugly of a crier is Viola Davis? Is the fence built with inside wood or outside wood? These questions and many more will not be answered in today’s review episode of Fences.

What are my initial reactions to the Best Picture frontrunner? How did I like the musical numbers? Is this the worthy follow up to Whiplash that many are heralding it as?

Aside: I just found out that I’m going to see this movie again. If my response differs in anyway on a second viewing, I’ll add that change to the ending of the next episode.
