Mule watches a lot of movies. Mule has also studied movies at university level, which means Mule does not only blithely blither on about liking or not liking stuff. Well, not entirely blithely anyway.
On the other hand I am not a snob, which means I will not automatically crank out the conditioned response that any arty-farty movie about an Azerbaijani carpet weaver and his extraordinary relationship to his uncle’s old grey horse shot in shaky black-and-white is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Movies and books have this in common – there are different needs to be met at different times. Some days all you want is mindless Steven Segal violence. If it hits the spot – it’s a good movie in its genre.
That being said: I probably will go a bit weak at the knees at some of the more difficult fare. Take this for what it is. I like movies and I watch a lot of them. I watch with a trained eye, too. If we share some of the same sensibilities perhaps I can offer an opinion that can help someone find a movie they would otherwise have missed. And that is a good thing.

For such a small girl Ree Dolly (Jennifer Lawrence) sure makes a big hero.

A cornucopia of fears in deep space.
A whole family invested in boxing, two brothers in the ring and a mother/manager.
