Happiest Season

Distributed By: Hulu Reviewed By: Melissa Minners                Every year, I go in search of a new holiday book or movie to review for the site and this year, I found a real winner.  I had heard much about Happiest Season, a semi-autographical film by Clea DuVall, but never got to see it when itContinue reading “Happiest Season”

Hallmark Christmas Movies

By Melissa Minners Okay, admit it: how many of you have already started watching Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel?

The Thirteenth Tale

Distributed by: BBC Two Reviewed by Melissa Minners                 At G-POP.net, we receive quite a few soundtracks for review; more soundtracks, in fact, than we do movies, books or regular music from bands.  A friend once asked why we review so many soundtracks, or more pointedly, why we review so many scores (check out Soundtrack orContinue reading “The Thirteenth Tale”

The Awakening

Distributed by StudioCanal UK Reviewed by Melissa Minners             Ever since I listened to the musical score of The Awakening, I’ve been wanting to see the movie.  Unfortunately, The Awakening is a British film and wasn’t available in the United States…until now!             The Awakening takes place in England in 1921 and stars Rebecca Hall as Florence Cathcart.  A published author, Florence is a skeptic and has dedicated herContinue reading “The Awakening”

A Street Cat Named Bob

Distributed by: Sony Pictures  Reviewed by Melissa Minners                 Years ago, I heard about A Street Cat Named Bob, a memoir written by a man who credits his survival to a cat.  It was not the first time I had heard about someone with an addiction problem crediting an animal with helping them kick theContinue reading “A Street Cat Named Bob”

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker

Written By: Rae Carson Published By: Del Rey Reviewed By: Melissa Minners                It’s no secret to most G-POP fans that I am not completely impressed with the recent Star Wars trilogy of films.  That being said, I am a loyal Star Wars fan and have seen them all.  Star Wars: The Rise of SkywalkerContinue reading “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker”

Christmas with Holly

Produced By:  Hallmark Hall of Fame Productions Reviewed By Melissa Minners             Hallmark Hall of Fame movies have been few and far between of late, but I had hopes that they would come out with a new one in time for Christmas.  Happily, a new Christmas Hallmark Hall of Fame movie entitled Christmas With HollyContinue reading “Christmas with Holly”
