‘WandaVision’ Series Review — A Risk That Pays Off
After an entire year without a new installment of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Phase Four kicks off with a brand new miniseries on Disney+. WandaVision is a superhero sitcom starring Elisabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany as Wanda Maximoff and Vision, two superheroes living a suburban life in Westview, when something sinister begins to unfold.
My Review of "The Sopranos: Season 2"
The Sopranos: Season 2 comes off a stellar first season. That's usually the case when it comes to fantastic first seasons. Well there are the odd exceptions like the Heroes franchise. There's a sense of quality that comes with HBO shows that I can't really put my finger on and this one is another great show.
My Review of "Irresistible"
Irresistible is a political comedy that was released in 2020. There wasn't a lot of fanfare for this movie as it came out during the whole lockdown. It's too bad because I think this movie might surprise some people. They have a lot of messages in this movie that were pretty interesting and very truthful in a way.
Why the Live Action Beauty and the Beast Fell Short
I am all about the characters. I can get by bad music, bad costumes, bad plot, and even bad dialogue if I am invested enough in the characters. So, this will be focusing on some of the characters in the movie and how the changes to their character contributed to the live action falling short of the original animated version of the movie; rather than focusing on the plot changes, auto-tune/pitch correcting, or the costume design (like Emma's refusal to wear a corset or the very expensive, though kind of mediocre--in my opinion--yellow dress).
Vampire fans: time to switch sides!
Are you part of the supernatural fantasy world? Fallen in love with a vampire or two? Then why not switch sides! I think you will really like this series where I am gladly presenting you two brothers, two hunters that keep the supernatural beings in place.
'Coming 2 America' Review — Slightly Disappointing
To answer the question on your mind, yes, the barbershop guys are back. I have no idea how they're still alive after 33 years, but it's great to see them again.
Coming 2 America
Sequels have always been seen as an easy way to make money in Hollywood. Even before the seventies penchant for adding a number to the end of a title to denote it being a sequel, Hollywood and the wider film industry were producing sequels, rehashing and reusing the same characters of a successful story in another film.
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba
Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba Season 1 Anime Review Based on the popular and action-packed manga, created by Koyoharu Gotōge and published by Weekly Shonen Jump. The story of Demon Slayer revolves around a young boy named Tanjiro Kamado and his sister, Nezuko. After discovering his family has been butchered by a demon and Nezuko turned into one of these horrid creatures, Tanjiro vows to become a demon slayer to learn how to turn his sister back into a human. Developed by UFOtable, the anime studio drafted the series with stunning visuals, making it unarguably one of the best anime of the last few years.

Finally, an Accurately Awkward Representation of Being 15 | Ginny & Georgia Review
Ginny & Georgia is Netflix’s latest drama-comedy series focused on a single young mom and her fifteen-year-old daughter living in a small town. Now, if you immediately thought of Gilmore Girls, I will have to ask you to stop because that shallow logline is pretty much where the similarities end.
My Review of "Signs"
Signs came out back in 2002. It was probably at the height of M. Night Shyamalan's popularity in the early 2000's. I have to say I was one of the few people that actually really liked this movie when it first came out. There was a lot to like it and I was curious if I would have the same reaction watching this movie almost 20 years later.
Tom Hanks Stars in Gripping 'Greyhound' Movie
The movie 'Greyhound' was supposed to be released in theaters in the summer of 2020. But the coronavirus closed down theaters and thus put a halt to that plan.
