I thought I knew what I expected going to see Guillermo del Toro’s Shape of Water but my expectations were completely shattered -- in a good way. Instead of adhering to the contours of science fiction/fantasy genre, Toro seems to toss a number of genres in to the bathtub and mix them with salt. Th...

I hate talk shows. The obviously staged banter, fluffy discussions and unoriginal activities with guests (Lip Sync Battles? Really?) leave much to be desired. Combined with the fact that they air at times when high school students are usually doing some last-minute studying for a test, I never feel compel...

The cliffhanger ending of season 1 of  Riverdale made it impossible for me not to give season 2  a chance. The second season of Riverdale, a teen drama created by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, premiered on October 11, 2017. This season was rated an 87% by Rotten Tomatoes, 7.8 out of 10 by IMDB, and 68% ...

You may have noticed that before the start of every Pixar movie, there is a animated short. These often receive high praise and are as loved as the movie itself. Pixar released Coco, its newest animated feature in November, and as usual, there was short before the film began. However, this time it got scathin...

Lady Bird, written and directed by Greta Gerwig, provides a potently realistic narrative of a teenage girl experiencing her senior year and for me, at least, hits a little too close to home. My mother and I attended an evening showing shortly after the November 3rd release date and encouraged by the ...
