My Review of 'Creed II'
I have to start off this review by saying that I’ve been a fan of the Rocky series for many years now. My perspective for this review will be biased. Luckily, my girlfriend agreed to come watch this m...

'Creed 2' Is a Knockout
I didn’t know Creed 2 existed until about a week before I saw it. I should say, I heard about it when they were making it and completely forgot about it. I saw the trailer the week before and realized...

'Instant Family'—Movie Review
Family-friendly fare is hard to come by in terms of quality content, due to the fact that every story has pretty much been told. While Instant Family isn’t the most original film out there, it sure wo...
'Confessions of a Not It Girl'—Book Review
I’ve read some other novels by Kantor, but none compared to Confessions of a Not It Girl in my opinion. Originally published in 2004, the story still holds relevance for today’s teenage generations of...

'The Thanksgiving Play'
The Thanksgiving Play at Playwrights Horizon starts out well enough. The four actors in the play sing a Thanksgiving song and are pretty campy about it. In fact, the four actors are all pretty good in...

'Ralph Breaks the Internet' - Movie Review
Due to the sheer notion that animated movies just simply take longer to perfect than live-action films (most of the time), it should come as no surprise that some sequels arrive slightly later than ex...

At 12:56 in the morning of November 24, 2018 I finished a book titled A Little Life by Hanya Yanagihara. This book recommended by a YouTuber that had read it a few years prior, in no way led me to bel...

'Creed II' - Movie Review
When it comes to the films in the Rocky franchise, you can pretty much predict how each film will end when the set-up takes place throughout the first act. This is both a positive and a negative that ...
"Carmilla" S1E2 'Missing'
This episode is where Laura’s tenacity and determined nature really shine through for the first time. Yes, it’s only the second episode, but this is such a cool glimpse into her character so early on....

'Ralph Breaks the Internet' Is a Sloppy, Illogical Film with a Few Good Moments
I didn't really know what to expect out of this movie before going in, since all of the trailers were pretty much just a bunch of little scenes here and there that didn't really give a very good story...

Movie Review: 'Cold War'
Can a film succeed solely on a strong ending? For me, the answer is a clear yes. Based off of my love for the ending of Pawel Pawlikowski’s Cold War, I can say that, for me, a good ending is enough for me to recommend a movie. Now, there are other elements that might recommend Cold War, the film is shot in gorgeous black and white and features a haunting series of musical performances but I can’t say I was completely invested in the movie until the ending stunned me with its harsh beauty. Cold W...
