I like Kevin Hart. I like Nicole Kidman. I even enjoy watching Bryan Cranston, but turns out I did not like all these things together. The downside to The Upside was just about everything. I went into the movies expecting a heartwarming film about the bond between a people that from two very different ba...

I am a big fan of going to the movies, I really enjoy the experience of it, but by no means am I a big fan or expert of movies in any way. I like watching movies, and I usually have an opinion of what I thought of the movie after I watched it, but I have no basic knowledge of what differentiates a good f...

While it has been a while since I’ve seen a historical film, On the Basis of Sex, directed by Mimi Leder, has to be one of the best ones I’ve ever experienced.   This powerful film follows the story of a young Ruth Bader Ginsberg struggling to put herself through the Harvard and Columbia la...

Jennifer Lopez’s new movie, Second Act, seems to be a quintessential romantic comedy, and… it is. Were you expecting a big reveal of something different? If you were, sorry to disappoint you, but this movie hardly has any innovative and unique elements that distinguish it from any other rom-com out the...

Watching the trailers and hearing critics’ reviews of the movie Instant Family had kept me on edge. I was super excited to see this supposed “hilarious” film, but what I saw wasn’t comedy at all; it was an emotional, almost drama-like depiction of what parents and kids go through in the foster ca...

I will say that the acting throughout was exceptional, and it was very well filmed. However, from his first take off to stepping his first foot on the moon I had never been more bored by a movie. From the time the movie began, with Neil Armstrong bumping around in a tiny spacecraft to finally stepping ...

When I first heard of the movie, I was skeptical of yet another movie that was focused on NASA and the Apollo missions. However, I enjoyed the movie’s unique focus on Neil Armstrong during the Space Race. It gave me a better understanding of and more appreciation for the astronauts who took risks a...

The highly-anticipated third season of The CW’s hit show, Riverdale, does not disappoint. Many fans complained that season two’s main plot, the Black Hood killer, dragged on for way too long, but luckily season three has an incoming army of unique storylines. Right off the bat in episo...
