"Heartwarming" isn’t strong enough of a word for Pride. Your heart will be hot like coal. It will be hot like coal that has been mined by progressive Welsh miners and then lit up by the kinetic energy of drag queens.
You guys: go see Pride. They lay it on thick, but they lay it on good. Take tissues, as well as any idiot family members still clinging to homophobia.
This Is Where I Leave You: They’ve made a huge mistake.
Also in this week’s Portland Mercury: I reviewed This Is Where I Leave You. I’m sorry to announce that a dozen beloved actors joined forces to make a shitty, shitty movie.
The Portland Mercury's back to school issue is out this week, and we all wrote about learning stuff! Here’s linky to my piece.
Good old regular love in Love Is Strange.
I use my feelings in this review. It’s nice.
What If: Baby Wizard makes good.
I reviewed What If for this week’s Portland Mercury…and I LOVED IT. Fans of classic rom-coms: get there. It is delightful.
ETA: oh and I forgot to mention in my review that you totally get to see DanRad’s butt. 4 stars!
Step Up All In is my favorite movie of 2014. It has so much dancing!
I cannot recommend STEP UP: ALL IN highly enough.
Ten million stars.
How to make your terrible divorce somewhat (but not much) less terrible.
Feature of this week’s Portland Mercury, by yours truly.
Friends: It is with a heart full of grief that I must announce that our beloved Arts Editor Alison Hallett is leaving the Portland Mercury after 10 years of meritorious service.
Any artsy writer people looking for a job in Portland? My pal Alison is leaving the beat. You’ll have some big, smart, salty shoes to fill.
"How dare you say such horrible things about us bronies?"
The letters section of this week’s Mercury is devoted solely to my Brony smackdown.
(BTW I have 221 twitters followers now, so suck it, dorks.)
Jersey Boys was good but not great.
