REVIEW:
Here is the one person that didn't like it.
It's me. I just didn't enjoy it or get it, frankly. I also don't get how this film stole all the awards' nominations at the Oscars. I get it was a sophisticated story, but maybe too sophisticated for me. I felt the degrees of separation were just too far for my tastes. It was so hard to decipher what was real and what was fantasy. Was he crazy, suicidal or both? I feel like I will never know.
In the end, I feel like this is two hours of my life I can't get back.

1/5

  1. I'm one of those people that loved Birdman. As a writer, I could identify with the idea of being more true to yourself in your art than in real life, and that when you try to please an audience you end up being invisible. I think artists of all sorts will recognize themselves in the film.

  4. Thanks forcyourcreview. I didn't realize it wavered into fantasy, I thought it was about going back to his glory days. But I am a big Michael Keaton fan, so I'll still try once it's free.

  5. Thank you for sharing your true thoughts about this movie. The premise of it sounds a bit depressing. I would see it for Michael Keaton's performance.

  6. You're not the only one! I didn't like this either. I just didn't get it, which was really frustrating and depressing. Thanks for sharing your thoughts.

Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens #EarlyReview (64)

The author of Still Missing targets her readership with a novel that hits all the notes they come to expect from her―and ratchets up the stakes even more. Lindsey Nash has left an abusive relationship and her ex-husband was sent to jail. She has started over with a new life, her own business, and a teenage daughter who needs her more than ever. When her husband is finally released, Lindsey believes she has cut all ties. There is no way he can ever find her and her daughter again. But she gets the sense that someone is watching her, tracking her every move. Her new boyfriend is threatened. Her home is invaded. Even her daughter is shadowed. Lindsey is convinced it's her ex-husband, even though he claims he is a different person and doesn't want to do her any harm. But can he really change? Is the one who wants her dead even closer to home than she thought?

As some of you may know, I love taking photos. Photography is a hobby of mine, but I often add some of my work to my walls. Recently, I was contacted by Canvas Champ, a company dedicated to making your photos come to life on canvas prints.


Since I had recently moved, the first thing to do was to walk around the place and see where a piece of art needed to be placed. Then it was about finding the perfect photo in my collection to hang there. Next, I was onto the website to start building the print.



Once you start, it will seem like there is too many options, but it's so easy to use. You choose the size, and within a few minutes you will be done and waiting for your art to show up.



The user interface is a simple design that you can easily get through with no hassle, even if you are not computer savvy a…
