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...

Just fair warning: the following review is going to be filled with praise of fan service and an overall rose tinted perspective. As a kid I spent days on end playing Battlefront 2 (2005) and I loved every second of it. I was obsessed with the clones, clad in shiny white armor with blue stripes running d...

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...

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...

John Green’s new book Turtles All the Way Down, released on Oct. 10, exceeded my expectations as it got better with every page. The story follows Aza, a 16-year-old girl with anxiety, as she battles her anxious thoughts while trying to solve a mystery of her childhood friend’s missing billi...

I saw about one sixth of It. I saw it through the cracks in my fingers as I struggled to watch such a gruesome masterpiece. It has very large shoes to fill, being not only one of Stephen King’s most notable novels, but also a movie in 1990 that many consider terrible. Some people who grew up in...

I went in to Guardians of the Galaxy 2 with relatively high expectations; when the original came out a couple years back, I saw it in theaters at least 3 times. The first movie was a near perfect blend of sci-fi, action, and comedy, with well built characters, flashy visuals and hilarious dialogue. Its ...
