"Deadpool 2"- Movie Review   In the late summer of 2014, early test footage featuring the popular merc-with-the-mouth was leaked to the public. People lost their minds. Massive fans of the Deadpool character were still trying to wash the fowl taste of X-Men Origins: Wolverine out of their mouths (I for one enjoyed the movie when... Continue Reading →

"Avengers: Infinity War"- Movie Review   Ten years in the making. Can you believe it? It's crazy to think how far the Marvel Cinematic Universe has come in the past decade, and it’s even crazier when you realize how much the landscape of superhero films has changed because of it. Superheroes have been brought back... Continue Reading →

"Sharp Objects"- Book Review I've had Gillian Flynn on my radar for quite some time. When I first saw the movie Gone Girl, I had two things on my mind- the first being how great David's Fincher's unflinchingly bleak style matched the darkness of the story, the latter being how strong and sharp the writing for...

"A Quiet Place"- Movie Review Is it me, or have horror films gotten considerably better over the years? There have been a lot of duds, of course. I mean, not every project can hit it right out of the park. From what I’ve seen though, with films such as The Conjuring, Lights Out, Oculus, It,... Continue Reading →

I never read the book, neither for school or out of sheer interest. What I do know of it comes... Continue Reading →

"Invisible Man"- Book Review   At the start of the year I made it a goal of mine to commemorate Black History Month by delving into some Afro-centric literature. The options were plenty: Alice Walker's "The Color Purple", the biographies of Martin Luther King and Frederic Douglas, the essays of Booker I. Washington, Franz Fanon's... Continue Reading →

"Annihilation"- Movie Review Alex Garland has had an interesting career so far. He started out as a novelist, with one of his books, "The Beach" being made into a feature film starring Leonardo DiCaprio and directed by Danny Boyle. He transitioned to the cinema sphere through penning screenplays for films such as 28 Days Later, Sunshine,... Continue Reading →

"Black Panther"- Movie Review   Contrary to popular belief, Black Panther is not the first black superhero movie. When you really look into it, you'll see that there have been plenty of black superheroes who've graced the silver screen: Wesley Snipes as Blade, Shaquille O'Neal as Steel, Will Smith as Hancock, Halle Berry's Catwoman, Michael Jai...
