    Thank you Robert. I took notes. I trust your critiques….

  2. I’m with Joanne. I took notes, too. You put so much into all your review, but it was obvious you went into overdrive for this one.

    I love your enthusiasm, I love your passion, and I love how much of yourself you put into every review. Thank you!

  3. Beverly Stafford says:

    Thanks, Robert. The only one of these I have seen is Roma, and unfortunately, I don’t share your enthusiasm for it. I know I’ll love some of the others – Mission Impossible, Paddington, Mr. Rogers, and Robert Redford’s Gun. I’m looking forward to seeing Tom Hanks play Mr. Rogers this year. Your reviews are always a treat.

  4. Linda Cooper says:

    Thank you so much, Robert. I too took notes. We now have the ability to watch so many movies at home. There is so much “in-coming!” It’s really helpful to have a film critic offer up their perspective in order to prioritize.

    Robert, you’ve certainly piqued my interest in some movies that weren’t on my radar. Thank you.
