The Vern visits great ladies and reviews Tomb Raider(2018) , A Fantastic Woman. and Thoroughbreds

Hello gang.


I recently posted full reviews of Tomb Raider(2018), Thoroughbreds and A Fantastic Woman for the Site That Moment in.  I am damn damn sorry I haven’t posted on this site in a while and I am very sorry I have been lacking on reading posts from all you other  other great bloggers.  I will be fixing that for sure this weekend.  But for now here are the reviews

Alicia Vikander(Ex Machina) takes over from Angelina Jolie with her portrayal of Lara Croft and the result was a lot of fun.  How much fun?  Well click the review below to read more


Before I begin my thoughts on this feature which recently won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.  I should mention that two of my best friends are transgender.  One of them fronts the band I play drums for  and in all honesty is a way better film critic than I will ever be.  She is the one that always tells the best jokes at parties and never has an issue breaking the ice when standing around a bunch of strangers.  The fact that she is trans once crossed my mind only once and that was the day I first met her at a bar.  She was there with other friends I knew and being a kid raised in the suburbs.  I was not used to seeing someone like that.  My parents always taught me to always to respect others, but when you’re young.  Your mind can be somewhat influenced by your peers and what you see in the media.   When I was a lot younger I looked at the trans community as some sort of mental disorder like Norman Bates in Psycho.  I thought it was just nothing more than just sexual perversion.  After that night in the bar with my friends and her., everything changed.  I have met other great trans women and men who are freaking awesome people.  I even brought a few conservative friends to meet the lady I’ve been describing and they think she is awesome.  The topic of her being transgender  never came light and they are all still friends with each other.

I hope that Anya Taylor Joy and Olivia Cooke appear in another movie together because I thought they were good in this.   That and Alton Yelchin in his last role  was good, but the rest…. Well click the link below and decide for yourself


There you are folks.  Thanks again for reading .  I know on my last post I was going to do my Oscar Predictions but I failed on posting that because I was just plain tired.  I am glad that The Shape of Water won Best Picture.   Laters everybody

About The Vern

I love movies and I enjoy writing about them too. They both go pretty much hand in hand with each other and it's fun to discover new classics. I co host the podcasts The Film Pasture, ScreenTrax, and soon Cinema Recall. While also contributing reviews and articles to other great sites when I can.

    I haven’t met any trans people, it sounds like those you know are nice. A few years ago I was blown away by Laurence Anyway which is a transgender film by up-and-coming director Xavier Dolan with great performances+soundtrack.

      I have heard of Xaiver Dolan but don’t think I have seen any of his films. I will check that one out at some point. Thanks so much for reading
