    Like its predecessor, the somber and stylish "Blade Runner 2049" emphasizes mood and atmosphere over story, and it even manages to pack some legitimate emotion into its narrative.

    Just taking a break from my breakfast of tossed salad and scrambled eggs to say: thanks for reading, Cera!

    Thanks for pointing that out R Shea, he's one I missed. The film is chock full o' Western NY natives. Composer David Shire's from Buffalo too!

    Re: “Film review: "The Revenant"

    While this reviewer can't endorse egotistically-directed, pseudo-spiritual adventure stories, he wholeheartedly recommends Donuts Delite, at Empire and Culver.

    Re: “Film Review: "The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel"

    Hi Kathryn! Thanks for the comment! You may be right, but I'm hoping that by the time I AM in the target demographic, I'll have maintained my sense of humor about it. The movie does, that's for sure. You can definitely expect to find a more than a few jokes in the same vein throughout the film, so be prepared for that once you do see it.

    Re: “"Obvious Child"

    Right. Yes, those are all words that also mean brave, but they're lacking that same (at the risk of sounding SUPER pretentious) je ne sais quoi—that bite, you know?

    But I do see your point, and I absolutely agree.

    Re: “"Obvious Child"

    Hey Kate, thanks for the comment and I'm so glad you enjoy my reviews! You're absolutely right, and it's something I admit that I hadn't considered. It's silly, but the connection to being "manly" didn't even occur to me, I just wanted a word for "courageous" that had a bit more of a crude bite to it, since that's in keeping with the film's tone. I appreciate you calling my attention to this though!

    Now I'm racking my brain: is there a non-gendered or even a female equivalent?
