Boarding in Jordan

Locally produced documentary, "7 Hills," shows peace at the skatepark
A statistic floats by early on in local filmmaker Jesse Locke's new documentary, "7 Hills," which brings a shock to the system. The country of Jordan has 67,600 displaced humans from Iraq, 671,579 from Syria, 14,457 from Yemen, 793 from Somalia and 6,146 from Sudan.



2020 Oscar Predictions

Too many to choose from... but we'll try to choose some winners
I used to be good at predicting the Oscar winners, but every year I get worse as my tastes change and I find myself rooting for the movies that shake up the status quo. I never would have guessed the saccharine "Green Book" or the sexy fish movie "The Shape of Water" would have won, but here we are and I'm ready to try and fail all over again.


Turning Off

"The Turning" offers the Worst. Ending. Ever.
Sometimes...sometimes there's an ending so completely immune to rational thought and logic that the audience sits in stunned silence staring at the screen, wondering whether to laugh or cry at the bizarre intimacy of sharing a moment of deflated expectations with a dark room full of strangers. In high school I read Henry James' 1898 ghost story "The Turn of the Screw," and was surprised how much I loved it.


May the Source Be with You

Podcasts, shows and other stuff you love to binge, January edition
It's 2020 and I'm once again the luckiest and most privileged person I know. Getting to go into another year writing for the Source Weekly is amazing, but knowing that the people of Central Oregon are reading my super nerdy words never fails to make me feel truly wonderful.


Modern Warfare

"1917" depicts a gorgeous hell
Is war supposed to feel this fun? I mean, I get it, it's 2020 and special effects are better than they've ever been.


Bleak House

Grudges never die
The first horror movie that comes out every year is always pretty bad. "The Bye Bye Man," "Underworld: Blood Wars," "The Forest" and "The Devil Inside" are just a few of the January dumping ground flicks we've been exposed to over the last few years—none of which were even really worthy of a theatrical release in the first place.
