It’s that time of year again. The Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo is back in town. This year the HLSR will be in town from March 3 to March 22 at NRG Stadium.

So, the Oscar nominations came out on Monday. Unfortunately, like all of us, I was stuck in school at the time of the announcements, but I was able to stay away from social media for the whole day so I could have a genuine reaction. To be honest, it’s safe to say that I’m a little disappointed. Su...

Normally, I would say that after a month of Oscars hopefuls and massive blockbusters, it’s nice to start the year off with a sub-par movie. This is the one year that doesn’t quite fit that bill, it seems. Dolittle is directed by Stephen Gaghan and stars Robert Downey Jr. as the legendary Dr. Dolittle, a...

In the past, I’ve made no bones about the fact that I’m not much of a fan of anything to do with Disney. Whether it’s Star Wars or Marvel, it’s something that I normally don’t get excited for. However, this might be a different story. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella tells the classic story of a...

When Robin William’s beloved Jumanji was said to be getting a sequel, I was fairly skeptical. I loved the announced cast and pitched concept, but it seemed too real for something to go wrong. I ended up really enjoying Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle. However, I was sure that it would end there. Th...

Seeing as this movie is coming from the director of Logan, audience members can expect something great. I was just praying that it was better than Midway. Ford v Ferrari is directed by James Mangold and stars Matt Damon as Carroll Shelby, a former race car driver who was forced to retire after...

Well, 2019 is finally over (thank God). Although the latter half of the year showed some signs of life with several high grades, there were ultimately too many disappointments to label 2019 as one of the better years for cinema in recent memory. However, there were still quite a few films that stood ou...

For a war movie coming out on the weekend of Veterans Day, a day reserved for paying respect to the brave men and women who fought and died for our freedom, it’s not too much to ask for the movie to have that same respect, right? Midway, directed by Roland Emmerich, stars a massive cast that woul...

In honor of the 80th anniversary of the beloved film, Art Factory, a small professional theatre just outside of downtown, put on a reimagined production of The Wizard of Oz. I am not the biggest fan of this famous story, but seeing this show was the most fun I have had in the theatre for awhile. Art...
