Made in 2006, Little Miss Sunshine is what every heartfelt movie strives to be and contains an original quality that every filmmaker wishes to create. What makes Little Miss Sunshine so original is its ability to mix serious issues such as divorce, bankruptcy, addiction and even suicide with a gentle...

You're bored, and you want to watch a movie, but you don't quite know what genre or what movie you want to watch. Comedy? But not too cliche. Action? But not too... much. Romance? But not too sappy. Mystery? But not too confusing. That's what I was feeling when I decided to watch The Grand Budapest Hotel....

The popular consensus for "Dead Men Tell No Tales" is negative. From what I understand, the Pirates of the Caribbean movies have lost their luster, and audiences are tired of this seemingly neverending series. With each new movie, the ratings have been on a steady decrease. Now, according to critics,...

After hearing numerous spectacular reviews, I finally got around to watching La La Land--the 2016 musical written and directed by Damien Chazelle. Needless to say, I was disappointed. The movie stars Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone as a young couple with dreams in Los Angeles (wow!). La La Land (accord...

I feel like not too many have heard the 'new' album by Two Door Cinema Club, entitled Gameshow, that came out in October 2016. I can see on Spotify that their most successful song from the album has only garnered up to 16 million listens, which is quite minuscule when compared to the band's most p...

On March 29th, 2017, rapper Logic announced via Twitter that he would be releasing a new album entitled "Everybody," on May 5th. The album was highly anticipated by listeners. Before I start off, the Logic fanbase is probably the most defensive group you'll ever meet, keep that in mind when reading...

If The Giver by Lois Lowry isn't a classic, then neither is Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare. Although The Giver was only published in 1993, the novel truly defined what a (dare I say) perfect dystopia would look like, starring a true utopia. The Giver is everything a dystopian novel should be: thought-provoking, perc...

The Fast and the Furious franchise is going to space in the next two or three movies. You heard it here first folks. The movies are getting more and more ridiculous with each and every installation. I can't even say that's a disappointing fact, sometimes a movie is just an action flick. As much as...

So here is a something I do not do often: a movie review. Although I have done many reviews in the past, I have rarely reviewed any films. Especially not any films that were made before the 1990's. However when I saw this film, I instantly loved it. Old movies are some of my favorite things, and Inherit...

If you're looking for a really good book and you’re into a mix of thriller and dystopia, The Third Woman by journalist Jonathan Freedland might be a good book for you. It’s a work of fiction, but it's honestly a much more realistic kind of dystopian fiction than the Hunger Games or Divergent. ...

Spring break is on the horizon. Regardless of what your plans are, most Americans are reported watching at least one movie during the break. If you're one of these people and you're looking for a movie you haven't seen or heard of, then the Deadzone is a highly recommended one. Made in 1983 starring...
