C2E2 2021: A Weekend In Review

Posted: December 16, 2021 at 10:08 am   /   Convention Reviews

As I’ve stated before, C2E2 holds a special place among conventions for me. Not only was it my first con outside of Saint Louis, but it’s where I met so many of my wonderfully nerdy friends. Since I started this journey back in 2017, I’ve only missed C2E2 once and it gave me massive regrets. […]

Movie Review: GHOSTBUSTERS: AFTERLIFE Starring Finn Wolfhard, Mckenna Grace, Paul Rudd

Posted: November 19, 2021 at 8:41 am   /   Movie Reviews

When I was a kid, my dad used to travel to Indiana for work a few times a year. Every trip, he’d take a few VHS tapes with him and record episodes of “The Real Ghostbusters” and bring them home for me to watch (I think they were on cable and we didn’t have cable […]

Movie Review: Marvel’s ETERNALS Starring Gemma Chan, Richard Madden, Kumail Nanjiani

Posted: November 5, 2021 at 7:23 am   /   Movie Reviews

The latest from Marvel Studios introduces ten new lead characters, following their stories over 7,000 years, features multiple cosmic entities, and answers questions fans have had for years. Luckily, the film is in good hands with director Chloé Zhao. How can a big-budget superhero film go bigger AND smaller at the same time? It’s no […]

Movie Review: LAST NIGHT IN SOHO Starring Thomasin McKenzie, Anya Taylor-Joy, Matt Smith

Posted: October 29, 2021 at 7:23 am   /   Movie Reviews

Edgar Wright’s latest is an ambitious, stylistic horror-thriller that doesn’t always hit the mark – but manages to suck you in through its unique story and stellar performances. Ellie (Thomasin McKenzie) packs her bags and heads to London, where she will attend school to pursue her dreams of becoming a fashion designer. Overwhelmed by life […]

Movie Review: DUNE Starring Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac

Posted: October 22, 2021 at 12:19 pm   /   Movie Reviews

Based on Frank Herbert’s celebrated 1965 Sci-Fi novel, Denis Villeneuve’s adaptation of Dune delivers on every level. Enormous in scope, the likes of which haven’t been seen since Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings films, the film is beautifully crafted and completely enthralling – transporting audiences to far-off worlds in the distant future. Villeneuve (Blade […]

Movie Review: MASS Starring Martha Plimpton, Jason Isaacs, Reed Birney, Ann Dowd

Posted: October 15, 2021 at 9:22 am   /   Movie Reviews

Confronting the uncomfortable, four actors deliver tour de force performances in this emotionally charged chamber piece. Dealing with the loss of a child is unfathomable for those fortunate enough to never experience such tragedy. For horrific events like the far-too-common school shootings in the US, an infinite amount of questions would run through one’s head. […]

Movie Review: NO TIME TO DIE Starring Daniel Craig, Léa Seydoux, Rami Malek

Posted: October 8, 2021 at 9:20 am   /   Movie Reviews

No Time To Die proves a fitting swan song for Daniel Craig after fifteen years as 007. After a brief taste of retirement (as if it would ever actually stick), James Bond (Craig) and Dr. Madeleine Swann (Léa Seydoux) are thrown back into their old lives when they are attacked on holiday in Italy. And […]

Movie Review: Welcome to the Blumhouse – THE MANOR

Posted: October 8, 2021 at 8:06 am   /   Movie Reviews

It seems Amazon Prime Video saved the best for last, albeit the best wasn’t that much of an accomplishment with their Welcome to the Blumhouse series releasing its final two films in their 2021 run. While last year’s features were of higher quality and the films saw an interesting cast of familiar performers, it seems this year […]

Movie Review: Welcome to the Blumhouse – MADRES

Posted: October 8, 2021 at 8:05 am   /   Movie Reviews

This week brings us 2021’s final entries in Amazon Prime Video’s Welcome to the Blumhouse series. With the first two films being quite underwhelming the week before, I was extremely skeptical heading into the viewings for the following flicks. However, it seems a little more stability was found with the final entries in the series. While I […]

Theatre Review: New Line Opens 30th Season With THE STORY OF MY LIFE

Posted: October 7, 2021 at 1:31 pm   /   Live Theater, Live Theater Reviews

“Write what you know.” That’s a quote attributed to Mark Twain, and also advice author Thomas Weaver – one of two main characters in The Story of My Life – keeps telling himself. It sounds easy enough… and logical. But isn’t it true that what we know changes over time? Not just the facts we […]
