Wes Anderson wasn’t a name I was familiar with until recently; although, I do remember seeing Fantastic Mr. Fox, another Wes Anderson stop-action film, in theaters close to 10 years ago. While I vaguely recalled the movie, the trailers for Isle of Dogs gave me hope that I would see a pretty decent mov...

Going in to watch The Miracle Season I knew this much: It is based on a true story, it is about a volleyball team, they have to defeat the odds to make it to State, and someone dies. All of these things are true, but the movie is so much more than that. The movie is about a volleyball team, but even someone who...

In all honesty, the first time I watched the Ready Player One trailer, I was not impressed. I can’t pinpoint the exact thing that set me off, but I was just not interested. I told my family I wasn’t going to join them when they went to watch it. My dad bought tickets anyways. Looking back...

The moment I saw the couch in the center of the stage and the chandelier hanging from the beams high above, I knew that Leading Ladies was not going to disappoint me. I had heard quite a few comments about how funny the production was, but no amount of words will ever do it justice. Leading Ladies...

The mother of all design shows is back. Trading Spaces, a show that inspired most of the design shows seen today, made its reappearance Saturday, April 7, on TLC after a nine year hiatus. The premiere was preceded by a reunion with the original cast of designers and carpenters. The fun, bubbly ca...

A new movie has come across the screens, causing a huge hype along teens: A Quiet Place. Is this movie really worth the all hype? The movie came out on Thursday, April 6, 2018. The well-known actor John Krasinski directed and starred in it as the father. His real-life wife, Emily Blunt, joined him in th...

I never read A Wrinkle In Time, so I wasn’t sure what to expect from the movie. While the CGI is beautiful and there are one or two touching moments, I’ve had more fun talking with my grandparents about politics than watching this film. As a whole, A Wrinkle in Time has a cheesy story line filled...

I walked into the theater to see Black Panther with my excitement in check. I constantly reminded myself that this movie, no matter how big the hype, is still a Marvel movie. This is the same studio that gave us some not so good movies like Iron Man 2, Thor: The Dark World, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, yet ...

Why The Last Jedi Isn’t an Awful Film

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...

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...
