Almost Famous: Will It Pass?

In this new series, I am going to be discussing older movies and see how well they hold up against the test of time. There are many popular older movies that aren’t politically correct by today’s standards. Those movies can still be entertaining, but it’s important to acknowledge that what you’re watching may not be acceptable in today’s society. It’s also important to appreciate the … Continue reading Almost Famous: Will It Pass?

A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder Review

I have never been a huge reader, and I’m not sure I ever will be. I don’t particularly love reading, but I make some exceptions. Although I wouldn’t call myself a bookworm, I’m always willing to try a new book.  Over the summer, I read A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder by Holly Jackson and the two books following it. It’s safe to say that … Continue reading A Good Girl’s Guide to Murder Review

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Review

Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness is rated PG-13. Contains minor spoilers. The second Doctor Strange movie lives up to its title. It is a rollercoaster of action that never stops and can confuse you at some parts. It takes a darker, more horror-type turn and makes itself different from other Marvel movies. The visual effects are stunning, and the plot is intriguing. For … Continue reading Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness Review

Slow Horses Review: Not Your Grandpa’s Spy

As an entertainment critic for The City Voice, I’ve watched a lot of spy dramas over the years. James Bond, Mission Impossible, Jack Ryan; I’ve seen them all and more. Yet none of them, in all those years, have quite been able to match the gleefully, darkly moody atmosphere of Slow Horses, Apple TV’s latest, wildly successful swing at changing the voice of TV drama. … Continue reading Slow Horses Review: Not Your Grandpa’s Spy

When we lose them, we lose ourselves.” – Ben Knox, on Snowpiercer, 1029 cars long. It’s impossible to watch more than a few episodes of the third season of TNT’s Snowpiercer, which wrapped up its finale before break, without expecting to hear Mark Hamill’s iconic, … Continue reading Snowpiercer Season 3 Review: All For This

Moon Knight Review: Should You Watch It?

Moon Knight is rated TV-14 by the Motion Picture Association of America. Moon Knight is a show that you should put on your watch list. The main character, Steven Grant, has dissociative identity disorder and unknowingly shares a body with a ruthless mercenary, Marc Spector, who serves Khonshu (the Egyptian god of the moon). Steven works at a gift shop and can’t tell the difference … Continue reading Moon Knight Review: Should You Watch It?

You Don’t Live Here Review

I’ve never been a big fan of books…except when I find a great one. I’m very picky about my taste in books. Naturally, whenever I find a book that holds every key aspect, (humor, relatability, and a limited amount of “cheesy” content) I grow to be somewhat enraptured. Recently I finished a book called You Don’t Live Here by Robyn Schneider. Being both raw and … Continue reading You Don’t Live Here Review

The Expanse Season 6 Review: Reason to Hope

There’s a lot to unpack in the sixth, and apparently final, season of The Expanse, but the moment that stands out most to me is an understated one. Standing in the medical bay on Ceres Station, surrounded by the scars left on her home by a man she hates, Camina Drummer still tells her surviving family, “I never loved you because you were fighters. I … Continue reading The Expanse Season 6 Review: Reason to Hope

The Old Guard: Revisited

The Old Guard is rated R by Netflix. As is the Netflix way, the first trailer for their 2020 summer action film The Old Guard was released only a few weeks before the movie itself, and it naturally generated some buzz. After all, Netflix’s last attempt at superhero cinema adapted from an obscure comic was the Umbrella Academy, a titled watched by 45 million people … Continue reading The Old Guard: Revisited
