In 133 minutes, the movie that extends the wizarding and magical world does not disappoint. “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” was shared everywhere across the United States on November 18, and I saw it almost a week later.

I saw the Marvel movie, Doctor Strange, over the weekend expecting a simply okay movie. I normally know a lot about most things Marvel related, but I never read or researched anything Doctor Strange related because it has never caught my attention.

Tidal was seen as a way for artists to extort more money from their fans paying twice as much than other streaming service and many Spotify and Pandora listeners were not on board with it, receiving a lot of criticism for being an "out-of-touch marketing campaign"  but not realize how great the music...
