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...

A Brilliant Mesh of Entertainment and Storytelling

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...

2019: One of the Most Average Years For Film

The end of another year. Here's to the next one.

January 9, 2020

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...

Shameful Representation of Our Country’s Heroes

December 9, 2019

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...

Spoiler Warning   The Marvel series Avengers has finally and sadly come to a close with Endgame. I personally found it absolutely amazing. Somehow Marvel figured out a way to nicely tie all of the loose ends into a bow. Unlike Infinity War, Endgame focused on the six, original Avengers and thei...

On April 5, 2019, the not very well known superhero Shazam made its debut in theaters. While I was interested to see this movie, I did not expect a lot. Yet after it was over it wasn't the powers or humor that made me smile, it was the family. Foster kid Billy Batson, played by Asher Angel, is a foster...

This movie has been highly anticipated since Justice League where we got our first look at Aquaman [Jason Momoa] and his striking eyes, it didn’t disappoint, with a few exceptions. When I first sat down in the big comfy movie chairs I was ready. It started off nice with a forbidden love story about...

Venom: Toxically Disappointing

I walked into the movie theaters to see the new anti-hero movie Venom and I walked out completely and utterly disappointed. Venom is about a journalist named Eddie Brock who is trying to expose the founder of the Life Foundation Carlton Drake. Carlton Drake is making experiments by trying to merge aliens with ...

June 25, 2017

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....

January 26, 2017

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...
