Reviewed by Ms. Critic After throwing back some Midol and curling up with the heating pad, I turned to the trusty tele to find some comfort. It was actually Mr. Critic who selected these movies from Netflix, probably from my prompts of wanting to see more “girl movies”. Let me confess one thing before I […]

So this year only two songs have been nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Song: “Man or Muppet” and “Real in Rio”. Take a listen. Real in Rio Man or Muppet First let me say, I am disappointed that there are only two songs. Either the Academy needs to change their rules or […]
