Thoughts on 2016 (so far):

2016 has been a great year for documentaries. There's an urgency to them, whether it be political or emotional, that is striking and fearless. And with the growing popularity of streaming, these films have been getting seen by people who would not normally have access to them. Additionally, 2016 has been a good year for diverse films like "Queen of Katwe" and "Moonlight". I hope this expansion in storytelling is not just some temporary patch employed by a guilty Hollywood over #OscarsSoWhite. 

Excerpt from Odie's Movie Love Questionnaire (read the full Q&A here):

Because of Mom, I love the old actors like Stanwyck, Cagney and Davis. Mom also loved scary movies and trash, and had little patience for pretentious art movies. My readers know I love trash more than Oscar the Grouch. Now you know where I got that affliction.
