‘First Date’ Review (Sundance Film Festival 2021)

We all have a first date at some point in our lives and we remember that feeling we would get — some type of queasiness from being so nervous about going out with the person of your dreams. That’s what I hoped ‘First Date’ would make me remember, but it really doesn’t make me remember anything good at all. Manuel Crosby and Darren Knapp struggle … Continue reading ‘First Date’ Review (Sundance Film Festival 2021)

Judas and the Black Messiah Movie Review

Has a movie ever taken your breath away?  That’s what Judas and the Black Messiah did to me.

‘R#J’ Review (Sundance Film Festival 2021)

R#J is an American drama written by Rickie Castaneda, Oleksii Sobolev, and Carey Williams, who also directed the film. The film is a modern-day adaptation of Shakespeare’s romantic tragedy “Romeo and Juliet”. I don’t even know where to begin with this love story as old as time and quite frankly after watching R#J it makes me wish this story had stayed in the days as … Continue reading ‘R#J’ Review (Sundance Film Festival 2021)

Why Promising Young Woman Is One Of The Most Important Films Of The Year

There are films that come out each year that will stay with you. More importantly, there are films that come out that start a conversation. Promising Young Woman will most definitely start a conversation because of how it addresses everyday misogyny and the treatment of women.

“Dragon Ball Super: Broly” proves that the series works as a show, but not a movie

For most of my life, I’ve been a massive “Dragon Ball” fan. “Dragon Ball Z” was my life when I was growing up. I must’ve watched it and rewatched it 3-4 times throughout, and I kept enjoying every minute of it. The characters are fantastic, but perhaps the most important part of it is how imaginative and crazy it is. It’s a show that merges … Continue reading “Dragon Ball Super: Broly” proves that the series works as a show, but not a movie
