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...

January 9, 2020

Well, 2019 is finally over (thank God).

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...
