Balancing out the Ferrell

Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

Directed By: David Dobkin

I actually really enjoyed Eurovision but I must admit there was a moment mid-movie where Dan Stevens character is comforting Rachel McAdams Sigrit after a particularly humiliating moment and I thought… he should have been Lars and Ferrell should have played Lemtov.

And that would have taken care of my biggest problem with the movie.

The Zombie Musical I Never Knew I Always Wanted…

anna and the apocalypse

Directed by: John McPhail

Grade: A

Grade: B+

I wound up watching this Marilyn Monroe/Jane Russell classic and completely enjoyed it.
