"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 →

"Tomb Raider"- Movie Review Films based on video games have performed so poorly over the past several years that it's hard to pinpoint the ones that are actually decent. The list is pretty long, with films like Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, The Super Mario Bros. Movie, Assassin's Creed, and so on and so forth. I... Continue Reading →

"A Wrinkle in Time"- Movie Review While I'm well aware of the existence of Madeleine L'Engle's novel, "A Wrinkle in Time", I'd be lying if I said it was an important part of my childhood. 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 →

"Fifty Shades Freed"- Movie Review When I started this blog, I told myself I'd only be reviewing films that I was actually eager to see. As a broke and busy college student at the time, I wanted to spend my time and money wisely. I stayed far away from the notoriously trashy movies. No matter how... Continue Reading →

"Peter Rabbit"- Movie Review Peter Rabbit (not to be confused with the strikingly similar Peter Cottontail) was born from the creative mind of artist and nature conservationist Beatrix Potter. Ever since his literary debut in 1902 with The Tales of Peter Rabbit, the beloved character's many adventures with his animal friends lived on for generations through... Continue Reading →

"The Cloverfield Paradox"- Movie Review The Cloverfield series has had an interesting run so far hasn't it? It all started with a small yet cleverly crafted mash-mash of the found-footage and classic monster movie genres then followed it up with a psychological thriller with a touch of classic sci-fi flavor. Do the two have any sort... Continue Reading →
