Black Superman: I'm Supposed to be Excited....But I'm Not
It was officially announced that WB will be rebooting Superman yet again. This time with J.J. Abrams in the producer chair and acclaimed writer Ta-Nehisi Coates helming the story. As a Black male comic-book fan, huge Superman nerd, fan of all of Coates's work especially his run on Black Panther, this should be the holy grail.
Could Cruella Remind Us Why We Love Disney Villains?
If you were to ask the average person what they remember about Disney’s 1961 animated film 101 Dalmatians, they will ALWAYS, without exception, bring up its iconic baddie Cruella De Vil. With her distinctive black and white hair, gigantic fur coat and obsession with turning the titular animals into a new item of clothing, Cruella De Vil is one of the quintessential Disney villains. Cruella’s popularity is now being exploited by the forthcoming 101 Dalmatians prequel Cruella, which reveals the backstory of the notorious villain. Set in 1970s London, Cruella explores how Estella De Vil became the deranged clothing mogul who has terrified so many of us over the decades. The project was first announced in 2011, and has gone through several directors and screenwriters, with I, Tonya director Craig Gillespie overseeing the finished film. Cruella is being released in May, and the promotional campaign has begun in earnest with the first posters and trailer, released last week.
Movie Review: 'Cherry'
Tom Holland is an actor I like a great deal. He has an earnest face and boyish charm that make him a near perfect fit for Peter Parker and Spider-Man. He’s proven as part of a series of Marvel Movies that he can hang with big stars and take the lead himself and all while maintaining an air of approach-ability. These qualities, unfortunately, don’t translate into more gritty or dark roles. The evidence for that is the new Apple Original movie Cherry, a failing attempt at translating Holland’s charm into something grimy and dramatic.
Pay Attention, 007
'No Time To Die' will not only mark the end of Daniel Craig's blockbusting run as 007, it will also be the 25th installment in the globe-trotting adventures of the world's favorite (not so) secret agent.
Representation in Romantic Movies – From Modern Classics to Hidden Gems
Valentine’s day may have passed, but the love hasn’t. The romance genre (especially rom-coms) has for a long time been targeted towards white, straight, women, and has thus been, in the mainstream, focused on white, straight, love stories.
The 10 Lowest-Rated Golden-Era The Simpsons Episodes (according to IMDb)
Between the years 1991 and 1997 (and a couple of years on either side), The Simpsons was the best television show. For 143 episodes from 'Stark Raving Dad' to 'The Secret War of Lisa Simpson', The Simpsons experienced its 'golden age', hitting a proverbial home run every week. Every episode produced during this era could be on someone's all-time top 10 episodes list. However, not all The Simpsons' golden era' episodes were created equal. To find out the 'weakest' episodes form this run, I have turned to IMDb user reviews to provide an 'objective' view. This list will present the ten 'classic' Simpsons episodes that have received the lowest IMDb score. This top ten list will not include the three clip shows produced during this period, as they would easily take the top three spots. All the episodes featured on this list feature 100% original content. Let's do it to it!
Let’s Talk About Malcolm & Marie.
When I first heard the buzz about Sam Levinson’s Malcolm & Marie, I was excited. The film (written and directed by Levinson) was shot in black and white on 35mm film, which is rare. The cinematography was visually beautiful, and the performance of the lead characters were stunning. What wasn’t so great however, was the screenplay.
The Beautiful Mind Of The Professor - 1964 J.R.R. Tolkien Interview - How He Created The Lord Of The Rings And Other Musings
Listening to The Professor speak on anything is an experience as otherworldly as the great adventures in his written works. This interview with Professor J. R. R. Tolkien was conducted in 1964 by Denys Gueroult (His name has varying spellings based on the source material.) BBC Radio 4 first broadcast the interview in 1971. It takes a very dedicated listener to follow the Professor at times through this interview. Just as a reader must be to wade through his written works. But that is the beautiful mind of Tolkien.

Never Have I Ever...Been More Surprised By A Show
It’s rare when a show comes along and completely surpasses all your expectations. But Never Have I Ever managed to shock me in ways I wasn’t expecting.
Ocean's Eleven, But Make It Spanish
Picture this: It's 2001, "Ocean's Eleven" has just been released and everybody is talking about it. You've got Brad Pitt, George Clooney and Matt Damon all in one film so the female demographic is bound to swoon. You've got Julia Roberts for the guys. Add in Don Cheadle and his terrible British accent and the fact that the plot centres around a $150 million money heist from three casinos, and bon appetit!
Top 10 Binge-Worthy Shows Based on Your Favourite Disney Movie
How long do you browse Netflix before giving up? How many times have you rewatched your favourite Disney movie on Disney+ to the point you don’t even need to turn it on to quote the whole thing?
It's Time For a Live Action Gay Superhero
On first impression, you might not expect me to be much of a fan of superheroes and their high budgeted films however, those who know me fairly well know that I actually love superheroes – especially the Marvel movies! I’ve watched almost every Marvel project at least once by now and I’m still not tired of the action! Comics books on the other hand aren’t really my thing, so I’m not super familiar with the backgrounds of characters outside of their respective movies or tv shows.
Ash Vs Evil Dead
The story of this great series/show to watch has much history. Coming from a 3 movie franchise 30 years later continueing the story but not as more films but 3 seasons, excellent series. I tell you all who are a little older and have watch the original movies. Which is a cult classic hall of famer. The show plays off the original movies so well bringing back characters from 30 years plus back to be part of the new fun which was the filming and writing of this series’s.
Why STRANGER THINGS Is About To Get...Stranger
Still no release date? That’s been my burning question for the past several months regarding the fourth season of Stranger Things. The production team is currently filming in Atlanta, and the cast members are dropping more hints online as to what we can expect from the next chapter. Some of it is…jaw-dropping.

To Watch or Not To Watch
I’m always wondering what to look at next. Whilst I enjoy watching movies, I’m more of a TV series person. Remote schooling, general housework, cooking dinner and writing means I have enough energy to watch a 25 to 43min television show otherwise the episode becomes part of my dreams. I see myself as a hummingbird when it comes to watching a program. I’ll happily flit from one show to another, discovering new characters or revisiting old ones. I won’t necessarily watch one because it’s popular – you know Game of Thrones or Bridgerton - in fact I tend to shy away from them until the hype dies down. Not one for always conforming I guess.
