A Quiet Place– Review

I will be the first to say that I don’t like horror movies. But, after watching A Quiet Place, I might be ready to change that statement. It’s been 89 days. Since what, we don’t know. The world seems empty save for a single family creeping through an abandoned general store. There is no music. […]

Ready Player One – Review

Maybe once or so a year you’ll get a film that is so completely original and absolutely revolutionary that you just can’t look past; Ready Player One should be regarded as one of these films.

No Adults Allowed: ‘A Wrinkle in Time’- Film Review

Director Ava DuVernay’s modern retelling of the 1962 classroom classic A Wrinkle In Time by Madeliene L’Engle is self-empowering, charming, and magical. The film is an adventure full of imagination about a girl who travels through time and space to save her father. With stellar acting and beautiful costumes, this is a film that will […]
