Review: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood (2019)

Fred Rogers is perhaps the most likable figure in recent history, renowned for his ability to speak to children and adults alike about difficult subjects; he was, truly, a real-life hero. Director Marielle Heller (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) has brought us another based-on-a-true-story film, but what perhaps makes Heller’s Mr. Rogers movie so unique is that it isn’t wholly about Mr. Rogers himself; it’s more about the impact he had on so many people, including a disgruntled journalist played by Matthew Rhys (in an underrated performance).

Review: Toy Story 4

I’m not sure if this movie was needed, seeing as Toy Story 3 ended so terrifically that it seemed like the end of the toys’ stories (see what I did there?), yet it’s hard not to love seeing Woody, Buzz, and the others yet again — and supposedly for the last time. I grew up with these movies, having been only seven when the first one was released in 1995.
