Jules recently moved to Toronto from New Zealand to see how the other side of the world lives – apparently it is not that different. She is the social media guru and a film reviewer for Narrative Muse and gets beyond excited about anything muse-worthy. She can also connect any actress or actor to Meryl Streep in 6 degrees of separation – that’s a lot harder than you think.
Reviews by Jules Raynes:
Out of all the inspiring women-protagonists in the world, why do I love a verbally abusive, manipulative woman? Because simply, she was a woman in pain.
“I am really lucky with iZombie. I feel like I won the lottery. I work on a show I love with people I love and that is so rare.”
Moms Mabley must be one of the most underrated comedians of all time, but this documentary is righting that wrong.
There isn’t a beginning or end to someone’s story. There are moments in time, and these moments can occasionally be life changing.
Alice Sebold dove deep into a story about death and darkness, but made me feel like I was reading towards perpetual light.
Almost Adults follows the love and heartbreak of best friendship and it’s a beautiful journey with Natasha Negovanlis and Elise Bauman at the wheel.
In this candid documentary, Carrie Fisher and Debbie Reynolds simply love and adore each other. They learn the truth that illness and aging do not discriminate.
In the last year of her life, Joanne creates a rainbow of memories with her family. Molly Shannon owned the screen and she owned my heart.
After watching Arrival it was not a question of - are we alone in the universe? It was a question of - why would we want to be?
Hard Choices is a love letter to America. It’s clearly a campaign mechanism, but I’m ok with that.
Tina is hilarious when describing her awkward childhood years. But a real highlight was how she writes about her friendship with Amy Poehler, her soul mate.
This film haunted me, but in a very good way, people. It’s more than a film, it’s a revelation.
When I was in my writer’s block and before I listened to her advice, it was like I had been living upside down.
Focusing on one of the few westerners to be captured by the Khmer Rouge, it's devastating to watch, and I found myself in tears, time and time again.
Although it’s not particularly nice to think about what happens to our bodies when we die, the more I read about the process the less afraid of it I was.
