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...

In the past, I’ve made no bones about the fact that I’m not much of a fan of anything to do with Disney. Whether it’s Star Wars or Marvel, it’s something that I normally don’t get excited for. However, this might be a different story. Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella tells the classic story of a...

In honor of the 80th anniversary of the beloved film, Art Factory, a small professional theatre just outside of downtown, put on a reimagined production of The Wizard of Oz.

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...

Miitopia was a peaceful place. That is, until the Dark Lord started stealing people’s faces. There is only one Mii who can defeat this fiend: you. This is basically the concept of “Miitopia”, a Mii-based RPG released by Nintendo in 2016. In this game, you control your Mii avatar (usually your Mii l...
