The Best-Developed Harry Potter Character
The Harry Potter series has a lot of characters. Some well-developed, some not, some only mentioned for a few sentences before they vanish again. But the character with arguably the best and most consistent development is one that tends to shock most people when I point it out.
Mantan Moreland was almost one of The Three Stooges
The Three Stooges: There could have been a black one Mantan Moreland was an African American actor born September 3, 1902 and passed away on September 28, 1973.

He starred in a number of films includiing Cabin in the Sky where his hair was pointed like horns and he portrayed Lucifer Jr. The actor was well known for his comedic timing and the way he bulged his eyes.

Ignored by History: Black Cowboys Finally Get Their Due in The Harder They Fall
The film This melanated escapist tale features characters based on actual black cowboys and outlaws from the old west. Although the people were real, the events are entirely the creation of Jeymes Samuel, the writer and director of this indulgent western flick. It’s unlikely that any of these people ever met, but the film’s speculation is no less enthralling.
Review: "King Richard"
Many sport films follow a simple formula that all too well feature a heartwarming underdog story and at its heart that is exactly what King Richard is. On top of that, it also seems a bit of an "Oscar-bait" type of film as it features arguably one of the best performances of Will Smith's long career. The film tells the story of the man behind two of the greatest tennis players to ever grace the sport, their father, and his pursuit of stardom for them both. During Venus and Serena Williams ascension to stardom, something that constantly made headlines at the time was how controversial their father was. You'd assume this film at its core would be about the two sisters but instead, it shines the light on the father to paint him in a better picture than the media ever did. In the process, it instills in the audience that it is always important to keep sight of what truly matters, the ones you love and protecting them.
REVIEW - Ghostbusters: Afterlife
Well then, it's finally here. Ghostbusters: Afterlife (or Ghostbusters: Legacy in some regions). I saw it on opening night (three evenings ago) but have taken a little while to collect my thoughts. As some of you might have noticed over the years, I'm rather into Ghostbusters, the film and the whole franchise. Ghostbusters II is great, sorely underrated, I thoroughly enjoyed the 2016 reboot (these days referred to as Answer the Call) and am still a bit annoyed the fan backlash damaged its performance so much that it didn't get a sequel. A third movie of any kind seemed unlikely for years, and at least the reboot made it clear there was still an appetite for the film. Finally we get a third instalment of the original continuity and... I liked it. I didn't love it. But I liked it.
Winston's Journal after the End of 1984
Recently finishing 1984, I felt compelled to write this post so that I could clear and organize my mind of some of the ideas that were presented in this book. Written from Winston’s perspective a few months or so after the ending of the book, I use this hypothetical perspective assuming that he has begun to question the Party’s intentions again, but can no longer decide who is correct. I highly recommend this book. I find it to be an eye-opening piece that thoroughly shows the way that society and ourselves can be manipulated. Constructing a horrifying dystopia, George Orwell brings to life the dangers and powers that can rule over us without even realizing it. I hope you enjoy.
Character Coding in Fiction
Something I’ve seen recently in online discussions is arguments about “Coded” characters. In most of those arguments, there’s been a lot of confusion around what kind of framing is or isn’t coding a character, and sometimes confusion over what coding even is. So, when I was stuck on my current NaNoWriMo project, I figured that I might as well distract myself by clearing a few things up.

My Review of "The Good Liar"
The Good Liar is a dramatic movie that came out back in 2019. I would have loved for it to be a mystery movie but they don't give you enough clues to categorize it as a mystery. Instead what we have is a movie that opens up with tons of different layers as it slowly unravels before your eyes.
General Hospital: Willow overhears Nina declare her love for Mike
General Hospital: The truth may soon be revealed General Hospital viewers have been waiting for Sonny Corinthos (Maurice Benard) to come clean to Carly Corinthos (Laura Wright) about his love affair with Nina Reeves (Cynthia Watros) in Nixon Falls.

Jasper Jacks (Ingo Rademacher) moved back to Australia without saying a word to Carly about her husband and Nina falling in love.
Book Review: "Mr. Rochester's Ghost" by Lindsay Marcott
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte appears at number 14 on my list of my '25 favourite books' of all time and is one of those books which I consider to be truly timeless. It will never go out of style, out of print or go out of mind. It is truly art. I read Jean Rhys' Wide Sargasso Sea when I was about seventeen and I'm not going to lie - at first I didn't like it all that much but as I read it again, I started to appreciate it. It was like learning a new language - you don't really get the hang of it at first, but the more intensely you read on it, the better it gets. Wide Sargasso Sea in comparison to Jane Eyre is an entirely different language, yet one does not take away from the other.
Tony Stark Finds Himself in “Iron Man”
The first three minutes of “Iron Man” are some of most symbolically dense minutes in the whole Marvel franchise. The opening scene takes place after Obadiah Stane has accepted Tony’s Apogee award in Las Vegas.

2001: A Space Odyssey's Exploration of Power Dynamics
***SPOILERS FOR 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY*** 2001: A Space Odyssey shows firsthand what happens when the power dynamic between man and machine is challenged, as the entire crew is nearly wiped out by the on-board AI HAL, all because of how he was programmed by man.
