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 ...

This past November in the movies has been defined by Justice League, Disney’s CoCo, and Wonder. However, Thor: Ragnarok has seemed to have gone under the radar.

Ever since I was a little girl dressed up in princess costumes, I have had a love for Disney, and movies have been no exception, but I have always struggled to see Pixar and Disney as one in the same, no matter how many characters I see in the parks.
