    Following her parents' tough divorce and a move from New York to suburbia, 17-year-old aspiring writer Deandra Laird (Juliana Destefano) finds herself struggling to adapt to her new surroundings and school—especially when she makes quick enemies with snobbish classmate, Adele (Paige McGarvin). So, when Deandra finds herself being befriended by school rebel Olivia (Alexandra Doke), the friendship is a breath of fresh air as Olivia encourages Deandra not to worry about Adele, and to get out of her comfort zone.

    'Parasite' Review—Beautifully Brilliant Satire

    'Parasite' Review—Beautifully Brilliant Satire

    The Godfather. Taxi Driver. Donnie Darko. Pulp Fiction. The Big Lebowski. Drive. These are all movies that I can tell you that I liked, but not nearly as much as most people, and when I heard the buzz surrounding this film, I was worried I'd feel the same.

    'Ominous Men'

    'Ominous Men'

    Ominous Men at the 14th st Y is a body of work that tries to touch on racial tension (a lot of hatred for whitey), drugs, poverty and misogyny. The problem is that the nexus of the plays writing never does more than scratch the surface.

    The Most Over-Hated Anime Character Of All Time

    The Most Over-Hated Anime Character Of All Time

    Sasuke Uchiha went through many transformations through Naruto and Naruto Shippuden. From the calm, cool, and collected character at the beginning of the series to what comes across as a sadistic, rage-fueled, monster later on. Now, by all means, each and every person in the world has the right to his or her own opinion when it comes to anything because like the old saying goes there is no such thing as a wrong opinion and this now and forever will be true. But too often within the Naruto fandom, I see people call Sasuke "poorly written" or just call him a downright bad character because of the way he acted in the series. It is one thing to not like a character based on his or her motives, actions, or ideologies, but that should not have an impact on how well or poorly you think the character is crafted. Often in communities such as Reddit, Instagram, Twitter, and YouTube, fans complain about Sasuke, calling him "too whiny and emo," therefore making him a bad character and I am tired of it. So let's get into why I think Sasuke Uchiha is the most over hated character in all of anime and how not only is he a good character but one of the best-written characters the series as a whole has to offer. (If you have not seen Naruto or Naruto Shippuden be warned because I will be heading into massive spoiler territory.)

    What Is Kentaro Miura's 'Berserk'? (NO SPOILERS)

    What Is Kentaro Miura's 'Berserk'? (NO SPOILERS)

    If you’re a fan of manga, anime, or dark fantasy in general, you’ve probably heard of Kentaro Miura’s grim epic Berserk. It’s recently had its 30 year anniversary, and, by its own creator’s reckoning, is just over halfway through. Berserk has just about everything you could want—action, a love story, and a dose of cosmic horror for good measure. But what exactly is it about?

    James Reviews: 'Bumblebee'

    James Reviews: 'Bumblebee'

    The first thought that comes to mind when hearing of a Transformers spin-off is how they could damage the franchise even further. After the dismal fifth entry from Michael Bay, which became the lowest grossing film of the series, it seemed that the best option would be to shut down the franchise. A change of director has done some good, as Bumblebee is a fun, charming adventure with a strong lead in Hailee Steinfeld.

    My Review of 'El Camino'

    My Review of 'El Camino'

    El Camino is the movie I guess not a lot of us expected to see. The movie takes place pretty much after the series finale of Breaking Bad. They even have a little recap of what had happened before the movie starts. After all it's been six years since the series finale. That's a long time, and I'm sure not a lot of people remember every little detail of Breaking Bad since then.

    'No Guns Life' Episode 2

    'No Guns Life' Episode 2

    We pick things up directly following the events of the first episode where Juuzou is in the middle of saving the boy that had run away from the testing facility. We get a fantastic display of just how powerful of a character he actually is when he gets serious, as in this episode, he is able to derail a train traveling at full speed by punching it. After a brief battle, he was able to save the boy and take him away just as he had promised to do. Juuzou takes the boy to a mechanic/surgeon to have him fixed up while he goes out to find his favourite brand of cigarettes. Juuzou is then approached by the corporation that worked on developing the tech that is on the boy that he saved, and their method of blackmail was to steal all of his favourite brand of cigarettes from the city.

    My Review of 'Geostorm'

    My Review of 'Geostorm'

    I'd heard of Geostorm way back when. I saw the trailers for it when it first came out, and I thought it would be interesting to watch, because I can be a sucker for disaster movies. This one stars Gerard Butler as the star character Jake Lawson. The guy who basically invents and creates the "Dutch Boy" program. Basically it's this computerized system up in the Earth's orbit to combat global warming. Well not really global warming, just the resulting storms from global warming.
