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.

The Marvel Movie for your Zodiac Sign.
If we're being honest, everybody and their granny has seen a Marvel movie or, at the very least, knows about the MCU. The Marvel Cinematic Universe has been dominating the Box Office year after year, ever since Iron Man first graced the big screen. Despite how awesome these movies are and how life-changing they've been to so many people, for many of us it can be hard for the worldwide phenomena to feel personal sometimes. With millions of adoring fans for every side character, it can be pretty daunting trying to find your special MCU film.
5 Great Books I Read in March '21
It has been one whole year since lockdown started here in the UK and now, I feel like everyone has really found their special books.

5 Stranger Towns to Visit After Hawkins...
I know. I KNOW. It’s been over a year since your last visit to Hawkins, Indiana. You miss Dustin. You’re itching to fly down Maple Street on your tricked-out BMX and what you wouldn’t give for a burger from Benny’s.

The Nostalgic Xennial's Guide to Children's Television (That Doesn't Suck)
Hey, fellow Xennials. Did you know that some call us the Oregon Trail Generation? We were born on the cusp of Generation X and the Millennials. We're too young to appreciate Reaganomics and too old to understand Tik Tok. We were born in an analog world and grew up with evolving technology.
Get ‘Lost’ In Netflix’s ‘Dark’
WandaVision held captive our collective attention while the audience insisted on creating connections and thinking up theories that weren’t really there. Game of Thrones naturally invited rampant speculation as the biggest television series on the planet that was also deeply rooted in mythology and mystery. Both attracted and grew their sizable fanbases by the intense engagement and internet sleuthing that they generated. On that front, both owe a deep debt of gratitude to Lost.

If You're Awaiting Amazon’s Invincible, Then Watch These Animated Films.
Will there come a time when animated film directors earn the honor of name recognition? Will there even be a Fellini, a Scorcese, a Fritz Lang, a Charles Burnett, a Godard, a Hitchcock or Stanley Kubrick of animation? Animated film hasn't earned the appreciation it deserves in the western world. The same feelings and worlds we access with live-action cinema can be found within the realm of animated cinema. In fact, in the right director's hand, or should I say eyes, an animated film can take us to places beyond our imaginations.
