One Direction Songs as Books
Have you ever been listening to One Direction and thought, “gosh, I would love to read a book that has the same vibe as this song?” Probably not. But, on the off chance that you have, the list below is for you. I can’t exactly explain my methodology here—I just took the idea and ran with it. Whether your a directioner or not, I recommed all the books on this list.
Why Disney Live-Action Reboots Just Don’t Work
If you’re like me, you have a spot soft in your heart for both animated TV and movies. You grew up watching 90s 2D Disney films and Nickelodeon on TV. It was a great era! There was no separation of the real and the fantastical and everything was a fairytale. Not to say that these movies and shows did not provide life lessons, but they lacked the gritty realism that went with the movies your parents were watching at the time. They were colorful and bright, instilling in you a sense of happiness and awe.
The Ultimate Thrift Store Gems for The 90s Kids
For me, walking into a thrift store feels like visiting a museum. Seeing all the items displayed on the shelves always triggers both curiosity and nostalgia.
Streaming services are making it easier than ever to learn about our planet. Earth month is a perfect opportunity to take a closer look at the state of our world and encourage our families to join in. Children tend to be more receptive to education in a fun format so don’t forget to bring the whole family in on your earth-ucation! I have marked any shows below that are not child-friendly or should be reviewed to determine if the content is appropriate for your child.
Movies Can Be Good Without Being Thought Provoking
As much as people love movies that can challenge our way of thinking and sense of morality, it’s nice to watch movies that we can relax and enjoy. While it’s important we have films like The Trial Of The Chicago 7 and Judas And The Black Messiah, sometimes films like those can be overbearing to watch one after the other. People loved the reboot Godzilla movies because of one simple thing, and it’s not just because they grew up with them. It’s because we could enjoy giant monster fighting. No one really cared about a philosophical debate of humankind and whether or not they should live amongst a new kind of god. We just want Godzilla to do his iconic roar and fight other giant monsters.

10 Things I Hate About You defines life as an adolescent. Hungry with an appetite for romance and an unquenchable thirst for self assurance. Emotions run high and hormones pump like fire through the veins, igniting our physical and psychological transition into adulthood. Twenty years later and 10 Things I Hate About You still holds up majestically! This near-perfect slice of teen romantic comedy will forever be a classic engraved in our hearts for two reasons. Firstly, the message the film conveys being that happiness truly comes from within. Secondly, the pure nostalgia for life in the role as a youngster. As we age like fine wine we recognize that time is of the essence. Events and situations that once held great importance as a teen now crumble. We’ve opened our eyes to the illusion of the over idolized interpretations of what youth should be about versus what it is realistically about. The doubt of self, fear of rejection, and first acts of unadulterated intimacy make a youthful life worth living and in this instance a script worth watching. If 10 Things I Hate About You is high-ranking on your list here are some strategically formulated suggestions any dramedy enthusiasts would call entertaining!
RIP Moira Rose, You've Just Been Gilmored
Yes, real life is cool. BUT, have you ever started a tv show and spent days and days completely immersed – just unabashedly binging it? Then, when you finish the last episode, you get this oddly sad, melancholic ache deep in your chest; in your heart. You don't know what to do with your time - with your life - once it's over. You wish you could discover it anew, watch each scene, meet each character, for the first time again, simply because, you loved it all so much.
Best of Netflix
Whether you're binge watching or Netflix and Chilling, hats off to the digital streaming behemoth that never ceases to entertain.
Welcome to the Marvel Cinematic and Comic Universe, exploring all things superhero and villain. Excelsior!

A Soldier for All Seasons
THWAPP! Honest to goodness that was the sound heard a mere fraction of a second before the ringing in her head engulfed her senses. She couldn't really taste the fresh blood but she could see the quickly darkening splatter on her chest. She stumbled to the left, desperately clinging to consciousness, willing her eyes to straighten and focus. After all, being struck by the heavy handle of a Colt revolver was a bit disorienting.
A Return To Mayberry
When I was a child, my parents introduced me to the Andy Griffith Show. The show premiered in 1960, airing on CBS. It ran until 1968, rating as the number one watched show in its final year. I was born in 1971. I'm guessing the show meant little to me until the late 1970's. But, when I started watching the show, I found myself hooked. Here we are in 2021, and I still watch the show on a regular basis. Thankfully, Amazon Prime offers all seasons for free! I love the comedic chemistry between Sheriff Andy Taylor and Deputy Barney Fife. I love the Father/Son relationship between Andy and Opie. Characters like Goober, Gomer, and Floyd the Barber are legends in their own rites. The directors of the show assembled a cast of phenomenal actors and have reaped the benefits of audience approval for decades. I think one of the key reasons generations of people have loved the show is that we yearn for the world to be like Mayberry.
Retro Review: The Last Airbender
It is often hard to adapt one work to another, film adaptations are no exception to this. This is because when adapting a book, television series, or even video game to a medium such as film, it is very important to make sure of two things. The first is that the filmmakers should develop the adaptation with care to the fans of the original material. The second is that if the elements need to be changed from the source material, then those changes need to make sense to fit the story into a new, three-act structure. The developers of the 2010 film, The Last Airbender, did not seem to take either of these two things into account when they adapted a unanimously acclaimed animated television series called Avatar: The Last Airbender. The result was a blatantly rushed, nonsensical adaptation that not only fails to properly translate the source material to a new medium, but fails as a stand-alone film as well.
'Thor' 10 Years Later
It’s hard to believe, but April 17th, 2021, marked 10 years since Thor made his MCU debut. At that time, Chris Hemsworth was a rising hunk that not many people had heard of and Thor was an obscure Marvel phenomenon that many weren’t sure would translate to the big screen. But Marvel was very canny in how they launched their newest hero. First, they hired a terrific director in Kenneth Branagh who delivered a smart, efficient and entertaining debut for the character. Marvel stuck to the basics of introducing a character, they believed in their star-making process, and it has proven to be wildly successful.
