I Would have a Silly Death in the Zombie Apocalypse
*Spoiler at the end* A few months ago, I started rewatching The Walking Dead. The Walking Dead used to be one of my favorite shows, and I used to binge-watch it with no problem. I loved analyzing the politics and getting involved with the drama. Also, ZOMBIES! Now, this show has a different meaning to me as we move through the pandemic.

Female Filmmakers You Should Be Watching
Most movies are made by men, but historically speaking women ran Hollywood. Before the commercial success of movies in the 1920's, they worked in editing rooms, wrote scripts, labored behind the camera, and in front of it. Successfully aiding the vision of giants like Charlie Chaplin, women have always been a central part of the magic of movies. Soon after women were pushed aside for male workers, the advent of male auteurs began booming. In the last ten years, though, more women have been found behind the camera, in editing rooms, and whatnot. But even still, there's more well-known auteurs such as Martin Scorsese and Steven Spielberg than woman. I mean—can most of you even name more than a few female directors?
Disney's Frozen Through the Eyes of GAD
This analysis is based solely on the film Frozen (2013) with no influence from its sequel, Frozen II (2019). The Walt Disney Corporation has been at the heart of a lot controversy and criticism lately. As a diehard Disney fan, even I have been furious with the company for multiple reasons. However, that does not negate the power of its franchises or the influence that its characters have on both children and adults alike. Children dress as their favorite Disney characters for Halloween. Adults share their favorite Disney movies and TV shows with their children. In America, if not most first-world countries, the ultimate family vacation involves some form of Disney attraction such as one of the theme parks or a cruise. On a cultural and psychology level, though, the company’s greatest influence stems from the complex socio-psycho-cultural themes that can be eked out of Disney films.

“Licorice Pizza” - My Thoughts 💭
“Licorice Pizza” - Dir. Paul Thomas Anderson A new film from one of my favourite filmmakers with “There Will Be Blood” being an absolute modern classic and “Magnolia” coming in close second in my books - I was curious what to expect from Paul Thomas Anderson’s latest “Licorice Pizza” which comes approximately five years after his last feature “Phantom Thread” in 2017.
Why 'Breaking Bad' Is The Best Show Ever And Why That Matters
Over the course of five years, Vince Gilligan and his friends have constructed a world piece by piece, with attention to detail worthy of a Faberge egg. They created a compelling protagonist, a deeply flawed yet charismatic genius. They built a business at which he had savant-like skills, and depicted the family that often drove him crazy. Then blurred lines between the two. And in that way created a life for Walter White that many of us can relate to.

Jackass Forever: A Spoiler Free Review
To preface this review, I must state that Jackass has a special place in my heart. Many late nights were spent watching the Jackass crew perform their stunts and antics while I was growing up. It was one of myself, and my friend groups go to series for sleep overs or just to put something on. It was a series that I enjoyed and grew up with.
Top 25 Moments In Which Endgame Made Me Cry, Laugh out Loud, or Smile
Avengers: Endgame, as we know, came out 3 years ago now, and it still feels like yesterday that I was trying (and failing) to focus on normal, everyday life when this movie was hitting theaters. Now, as we approach its anniversary on April 26, I can’t stop thinking of how much this movie (and its predecessor Avengers: Infinity War) shook the world and changed the Marvel Cinematic Universe forever. These movies are, in my opinion, two of the greatest superhero movies, and I could go on for hours as to why they are so amazing. Not only does Endgame have show-stopping, jaw-dropping, tear-jerking moments— it also has an ensemble cast that ties up and connects a decade of movies perfectly. That storytelling and world-building is enough to give me chills.
