Traitor by Amanda McCrina Book Review

You know, there's a barrier when it comes to learning history from foreign countries, and I think that's evident in Traitor; if we want to properly be educated on it, like a bagel with surprisingly too much garlic, we can be easily taken aback with how many different groups with so many different histories we...

Cruella (2021) Movie Review

There was Maleficent, then Suicide Squad, then Venom, then Joker, now Cruella! Apologies if I missed any, but I have to say villain stories are now trending, and Cruella is a terrific example of why we should be excited for that. When we're kids, we understand our heroes. When we're adults, we also understand our... Continue Reading →

Enola Holmes (2020) Movie Review

Back in March, the star of this movie said she stood by Hong Kong police who were caught tear-gassing citizens and... Continue Reading →

Little Women (2019) Movie Review

My sister and mother have been wanting to see Little Women for ages.

Capone (2020) Movie Review

I was rooting for this movie for one reason: director Josh Trank. I really enjoyed his found-footage anti-superhero eye-opener, Chronicle, and even though I was far from giving a recommendation to his attempt to reboot the Fantastic Four, I didn't find it deserving of the backlash and ridicule it got. Apparently after that film was... Continue Reading →
