Posted: April 24, 2019 at 10:07 am   /   Movie Reviews

In the past eleven years, we as an audience have witnessed something truly remarkable in cinema.

While some may not be held on as high of a pedestal as […]

Movie Review: ‘High Life’ Starring Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, André Benjamin

Posted: April 12, 2019 at 8:53 am   /   Movie Reviews

When High Life begins, there’s already an ominous feel as to what’s going to happen during its 110-minute runtime. The score is haunting. The halls of this spacecraft are barren while the only sounds being heard is a baby cooing while watching flashes of television. The film cuts to Robert Pattinson outside the spacecraft as […]

Movie Review: ‘Little’ Starring Regina Hall, Issa Rae, Marsai Martin

Posted: April 12, 2019 at 8:41 am   /   Movie Reviews

You ever just know something’s about to happen, but you can’t help but watch? Like a friend who makes terrible dating decisions and is about to make another one. Or a Vikings fan getting ready to watch their kicker attempt a game-winning kick (sorry, Andrew). I didn’t get a great feeling about Little when I […]

Movie Review: ‘Shazam!’ Starring Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer

Posted: April 5, 2019 at 8:36 am   /   Movie Reviews

I have a confession to make. I’m a little burned out on superhero movies. Now, hear me out. It’s not that I don’t enjoy them. They’re still pretty entertaining, and more often than not, I’ll still go to a theater to see them before they come out on Blu Ray. But I no longer really […]

Theatre Review: Come Prepared to Laugh at ‘The Play That Goes Wrong’ at The Rep

Posted: April 4, 2019 at 4:27 pm   /   Live Theater Reviews

There are many great comedies when it comes to live theatre. Some of my favorites which come to mind: Something Rotten!, The Book of Mormon, Spamalot, and A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder. I’d be happy to see any of these shows at any time, and I know I’d have a blast. Yet, I […]
