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...

Let's call this a reverse review. I am giving my final opinion early because that is how fantastic this film is. Logan is the greatest movie involving Hugh Jackman's Wolverine which is increasingly appropriate considering it is Jackman's last run for the character. While the quality of X-Men films has...

When reading Milk and Honey, the reader must know that they are taking a moment to experience the most vulnerable parts of poet Rupi Kaur. Her first poetry book, released in 2015, caused controversy from her art and words that show the reality of violence and pain that young women deal with. Taking the...

It had been a Saturday night and I was home alone. Maybe 11:45pm had not been the best time to start watching a movie but we all make responsible decisions. The Outsiders was a familiar name of a book I know had read but had somehow forgotten. And so, although not the most responsible decision, it e...

My experience with Fire Emblem was swift and wonderful, a whirlwind of quality gameplay and fun experiences. Although it was only a few months earlier, I’ve blown my way through four of their most recent games. Since I have no consoles to play the older games, I was left aching for more. To my delig...

*Spoilers* Although it’s been out for quite a while, the movie “The Impossible” has finally been added to Netflix. When I first watched this movie a few years back it left quite the mark on me and I do not think I will ever forget it. “The Impossible” is a captivating movie that follows...

Often we live our life taking what we have for granted. We complain about things that don’t go our way and shrug off the good. For Jaycee Dugard, she quickly found out to not take things for granted but to cherish every moment you have enjoying life. A Stolen Life is the story of how Phillip ...

Resident Evil has had a rough few years. The last mainline entry into the franchise, Resident Evil 6, was released back in 2012 and was panned for its action-focused gameplay and overly-outrageous antics. The entry before that, Resident Evil 5, had similar problems, and I shudder to even think of the...

The month of January is infamous in the Entertainment realm when it comes to movie releases. However, M. Night Shyamalan's Split is definitely no exception to this rule. I am not one to be nervous to watch any thriller but I found myself rather terrified when the title screen popped up. My instinct...
