"The Assistant"- Movie Review Ever since I started working as a staff assistant, I've found myself drawn to movies set in offices. I remember seeing the movie Office Space for the first time two or so years ago and thinking, “How, this speaks to me.” Even if the plots themselves were about something I'd never...

"The Old Guard"- Movie Review So here we are, sitting in our homes, keeping clean, having endless rounds of Zoom meetings, still waiting for the world to return to somewhat normalcy. And devoted moviegoers like me are still aching to return to the theaters. Sadly, it looks like the world is going to be stuck... Continue Reading →

"Hamilton"- Movie Review Finally, after years of watching the Hamilton hype train stroll on by, I can now say that I've stepped foot onto the bandwagon, albeit under special circumstances. The filmed version of the Broadway musical was slated for a theatrical release, but, similarly with Artemis Fowl, it was pushed to Disney+. It's a... Continue Reading →

"Artemis Fowl"- Movie Review Anyone who grew up in the early 2000s knows the name Artemis Fowl. The fantasy book series, written by Irish author Eoin Colfer, was pretty popular among the elementary school crowd. And why wouldn't it be? It was practically the James Bond of children's fantasy stories, with elves, fairies, high-tech gadgets... Continue Reading →

"Da 5 Bloods"- Movie Review It makes sense that in the midst of our current wave of racial justice activism and social unrest, Spike Lee puts out his next timely motion picture. It also makes sense that if you're Spike Lee, and you're following on the heels of a movie like BlackKklansman, you'd make sure... Continue Reading →

Even a scrooge like me appreciates a decent romp every once in a while, though in my opinion, a romantic romp that's actually decent is hard to find. I try to keep an eye out for ones with good word-of-mouth, or... Continue Reading →

"Extraction"- Movie Review It's been over a month since I've been to the theater, and let me tell you, I've been having some serious withdrawals. I miss being able to go to a screening, chilled water bottle and contraband snack in hand, and relax and enjoy watching a movie with surround-sound. Thankfully our current age... Continue Reading →

Quarantine Diaries Vol. I:  Flying Cars, Talking Pigs and Unfortunate Events Heeellllllooo.....! Can anybody hear me? Can anybody see me? Does anybody out there have one ounce of sanity left in them? The past few weeks have been chaotic to say the least, and I don't know about you all, but I'm pretty exhausted. Some... Continue Reading →

"The Invisible Man" & "Onward"- Dual Review So yeah, a lot has changed in the two weeks since I started writing this dual review. The world has shut down due to the coronavirus, and a tiny fraction of these temporary closures include movie theaters. So although the movies I'm about to talk about are worth... Continue Reading →

"The Call of the Wild"- Movie Review Everyone has that one book they were forced to read in high school that they absolutely hated. For me, it was a toss-up between the Shakespeare play Julius Caesar, Jane Austin's Pride and Prejudice and Jack London's The Call of the Wild. All three bored me to tears,... Continue Reading →
