This is a virtual cafe where all ideas are entertained all facts discerned, all topics discussed. And just because the proprietor has a passion for Christ, books, and the Acoustic guitar, that doesn't mean you can't veer wildly off into different subjects. So, come in, have a coffee (imported especially from Verble's finca in El Salvador), and talk about whatever you want.

Overheard at Table 4: Freaky (2020)
Freaky is the movie that you need to see, it is the perfect escapism from the horrors of the current COVID year.
It's got everything: gore splatter horror, body-switching gender-bending, teen romcom. Some people may consider it fluff, but it's really just what the doctor ordered.
Additionally, I see a lot of critics complimenting Vince Vaughan for portraying a teen female, but not enough credit is given to Kathryn Newton for playing a middle-aged hulking amoral serial killer trapped inside a 17 year old girl's body. Her role, and the quiet cold and calculating calm with which she plans her kills is simply sublime.
