Why The Last Jedi Isn’t an Awful Film

The response to The Last Jedi is stupid. Critical reviews of The Last Jedi that came out prior to the release of the film were promising. However, the audience reception of the film was disappointing to say the least. Complaints ranged from the film dragging in the second act all the way to a petition t...

I really want Steve Harrington’s hair. “Stranger Things 2” brought me back. It made me feel nostalgia for a time I have never known. Much like I  compared “It” to the scene of Elliot first meeting E.T. in his shed, this season of "Stranger Things" is like the first 20 minutes of Th...

“Moral Orel” is deceptively funny. I remember sitting on the couch in my living room laughing hilariously, not noticing my mother’s look of disgusted concern: “That’s actually really dark. Why are you laughing?” Why was I laughing? Because “Moral Orel” drags you in with it’s inno...

I haven’t seen an album with this messy of a rollout since The Life of Pablo. Announced last year as Say10, the new Marilyn Manson album was slated for release on Valentine’s Day of 2017. The anticipation was killing me, and when Valentine’s Day finally rolled around, the album was nowhere to be...

4 words: I miss the original. Netflix has been carrying on the classic show from the 90s “Full House” through their series “Fuller House”. Recently, the third season of the show was released and it has left people talking. With the first season it was a great throwback. I was so pumped for it to come out ...

You’re stranded. You get on a plane and ship off to your desired location. Next thing you know, you wake up and you realize that you have been dumped into snow covered mountain and you have no way of getting help. It’s a common  question: If you were stranded somewhere what would you bring wi...
