Review: Us

"Chris, you are very gifted as a reviewer. Often I will read your words about a movie I wasn't particularly drawn to and be "well, gotta see that now, don't I?" -Carmen

"Not sure how I feel about this new movie trend of Creepy [Prestigious Actress]. This year alone gives us Creepy Isabelle Huppert, Creepy Lupita Nyong'o, and Creepy Octavia Spencer." - Brevity

Keep TFE Strong

This Week's Smackdown Panel 

Thank you for all the votes for this weeks Supporting Actress Smackdown for the 91st Oscars - so many ballots for us to sift through with opinions so varied which is just how it should be and how we like it (if you forgot, we'll accept them today as well but they're due by midnight!) Due to behind the scenes technical stuff we'll be posting the Smackdown Monday night, but it's time to meet the panel. We cheekily asked them for their pics in the three chopping-block craft categories but then the Academy reversed course. We're sharing their votes anyway, because shouldn't you always know who people are rooting for in cinematography, editing, and makeup? We think so! 

Please welcome two first time panelists

She graduated from Elon University in 2016, with a BFA in Acting and a minor in Communications.
