I’ve seen it all- The Walking Dead, New Girl, Jane the Virgin, Black Mirror, The Office- the list goes on and on.

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...

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...
