"Mr. Mercedes"- Book Review After I'd crossed IT off my list of must-read Stephen King books, I wasn't sure which one to tackle next. Of course, my options seemed limitless. The man's bibliography stretches as far as the river Nile, with everything from short stories to novels the width of a King James Bible. Naturally I... Continue Reading →

"BlacKkKlansman" Movie Review To be honest, I’m not too familiar with Spike Lee’s work. The list of ones I’ve seen barely takes up space on a sticky note. Malcolm X- which funny enough stars BlacKkKlansman lead John David Washington’s father, Denzel Washington- is overly long but nonetheless a stunning autobiography of one of America’s most...

"Christopher Robin"- Movie Review It's virtually impossible to hate Winnie the Pooh. If you do, odds are you don't have a soul. Granted, the stories of Winnie the Pooh and his adventures in the Hundred-Acre Wood aren't for everyone, though there's no denying the lasting impression they make on people's lives, mine included. I adore... Continue Reading →

"Mission: Impossible- Fallout"- Movie Review Of all the spy movie franchises out there, Mission: Impossible is probably my favorite. The fourth installment, Ghost Protocol, was my introduction to the series and I absolutely loved it, though I never saw the others until recently when I binged them in preparation for MI: 6. My thoughts on each? The first is... Continue Reading →

"Sorry to Bother You"- Movie Review We hear the argument constantly: Hollywood has nothing original to offer anymore! All we get are remakes and reboots and sequels! As tedious as the debate is, I tend to agree. Hollywood is playing it safe. The industry would rather continue to bank on people's nostalgia and stick to... Continue Reading →

"Three Identical Strangers"- Movie Review As I mentioned in my review for Won't You Be My Neighbor?, I'm not usually one for seeing documentaries in theaters unless it's part of a film festival. Not that I've never been interested. Normally the case is either a) documentaries- the really good ones at least- rarely come to where... Continue Reading →

"Ant-Man and the Wasp"- Movie Review Director Peyton Reed brings the gang back together for this sequel to the 2015 hit Ant-Man. Set just after the events of the third Captain America movie, the film kicks off with Scott Lang stuck under house arrest. Between this, weekend visits with his daughter (played by the maddeningly adorable Abby... Continue Reading →

"Won't You Be My Neighbor?"   Although I grew up watching Mister Rogers' Neighborhood, I'd be lying if I said it was a defining staple of my childhood. The little memory I have of it fits snugly among those of other PBS shows I watched at the time- including Between the Lions, Bananas in Pajamas, Zoom, Dragon... Continue Reading →

"Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom"- Movie Review I can't remember the first time I saw Jurassic Park. A part of me wants to say I came found it on cable while channel-surfing, yet at the same time my mind is painting a very distinct picture of me getting the VHS tape out from my grandma's video cabinet...
