Fangirl Freakouts: Lez Bomb from @kleffnotes

I am a bit late to the party with Lez Bomb, but this holiday film took a bit of planning for me to watch. There are so few queer movies that also fit within a holiday theme and Lez Bomb is a Thanksgiving focused story that shows us one woman’s attempt to come out to family that just doesn’t seem to be listening.

Denial Movie Review from @kleffnotes

Everyone at some point in their life has probably been in denial about something. Whether it be about an event in your life, something happening in the world around you, or perhaps even something in your own personality, denial has happened at some point.

When Denial begins it appears to be a film focused on climate change and how the Hallquist family, especially the father and son, have been impacted The Grid and ideas connected to climate change, but then it shifts into a discussion of the father and the reveal of a deep personal truth that leads to unexpected feelings of denial.

When four friends from college decide to video chat with each other one night things a seemingly goofy prank turns into a night of dark and complicated events.
