    Lifetime Review: 'Pretty Cheaters, Deadly Lies'

    Hanna Fletcher (Keara Graves) and her cousin Madison Willits (Sydney Meyer) couldn't be more opposite if they tried. While Hanna is a diligent student working hard towards a college scholarship, Madison couldn't care less about her education--much to the outrage of her father Mike (Sebastien Roberts). But after Mike threatens to cut her off if she doesn't get into college, Madison turns to her studious cousin for help passing her college entrance exam--by taking it in her place.

    One of the Best Shoujo Animes of the 2000s – ToraDora!

    One of the Best Shoujo Animes of the 2000s – ToraDora!

    Even though the reason behind my revisit of the anime, ToraDora!, still remains unknown, it’s definitely safe to say that this anime is timeless, beautiful, and will forever remain as a truly pure example of how moving and immersive shoujo animes were in the 2000s.

    A Little Too Good, A Little Underrated: I Don't Love You Yet

    A Little Too Good, A Little Underrated: I Don't Love You Yet

    Controversial statements aren’t necessarily the best way to start off a review. However, I think that a fair number of people who consume Japanese dramas can agree that quality romantic-comedies of its kind are certainly far and few between. A huge reason as to why this is so, is mainly due to the fact that many of these dramas are based off of popular manga series. While the original artworks may have been excellent, I have found that many drama adaptations often pale in comparison. Most of them are so focused on imitating the original manga that they’re based upon that the overall delivery of everything ultimately ends up falling flat. This often results in cringe-worthy exaggerations and terribly storytelling.

    KOTLC book series thoughts

    KOTLC book series thoughts

    Keeper of The Lost Cities Series by Shannon Messenger was a book series that I did not touch at all. Most of my fellow bookworm friends recommended this series, but for some reason I did not believe them. Well, I believe that there are 3 main reasons to why I did not try to read the books even after knowing that the series appealed strongly to readers.

    I can find enjoyment in all different genres of movie, I like good ones, bad ones, so bad they're good ones, but every once in a while I come across a movie that just baffles me. Rim of the World is one of those movies.

    Review of 'A Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes'

    Review of 'A Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes'

    Ambition will fuel him. Competition will drive him. But power has its price. It is the morning of the reaping that will kick off the tenth annual Hunger Games. In the Capitol, eighteen-year-old Coriolanus Snow is preparing for his one shot at glory as a mentor in the Games. The once-mighty house of Snow has fallen on hard times, its fate hanging on the slender chance that Coriolanus will be able to outcharm, outwit, and outmaneuver his fellow students to mentor the winning tribute. The odds are against him. He's been given the humiliating assignment of mentoring the female tribute from District 12, the lowest of the low. Their fates are now completely intertwined -- every choice Coriolanus makes could lead to favor or failure, triumph or ruin. Inside the arena, it will be a fight to the death. Outside the arena, Coriolanus starts to feel for his doomed tribute... and must weigh his need to follow the rules against his desire to survive no matter what it takes.

    In the mood to get weird?

    In the mood to get weird?

    Top three surreal science fiction shows. For the past couple of decades, I’ve been a huge science fiction fan. As a kid I would watch Doctor Who with my father and as a teen I became a brown coat while watching firefly. After a while though, sometimes I would crave something unique, something someone obviously high on cough syrup wrote. There are many surreal science fiction shows out there, the mind-blowing the nonsensical and the ones that run over the fine line of being clever and being stupid.

    My Review of "Aladdin (1992)"

    My Review of "Aladdin (1992)"

    Aladdin the animated movie from 1992 is a classic Disney animated movie. It's so popular that they decided to make a live action remake in 2019. It's been so long and I don't know why it's taken me this long to finally see it. I remember that it was popular when I was a kid but I never got to watch it. It kind of slipped through the cracks for almost 30 years. Luckily, I finally got the chance to watch it.

    A s you know, The Walking Dead is an American post-apocalyptic horror television series based on the comic book series by Robert Kirkman, Tony Moore, and Charlie Adlard. I personally never read the comic books series, although I do have a few friends that are obsessed with collecting them.
