Lisa Marie’s Week In Review: 3/28/22 — 4/3/22


My heart goes out to Bruce Willis and his family.  Before the announcement was made about his health, a lot of people said a lot of pretty nasty things about Mr. Willis and his latest films.  Hopefully, this will serve as a reminder that one can be honest and, yes, even snarky about a movie without using it as an excuse to personally attack the people involved.  I’m looking at you, all you Razzie voters.

As for the Will Smith/Chris Rock discourse, it was interesting for like three days.

Between recovering from Oscar Sunday and dealing with the Texas heat, I was pretty lethargic this week.  Still, I did watch some films:
