It’s a big improvement from last years “Batman Vs. Superman,” which by the way, as a sloppy chaotic mess. That film was too dark for a superhero film which made it depressing. Anyway, I digress.  This film shows Ben Affleck's portrayal of the Dark Knight in a way that wasn’t too over the to...

Since the Thor franchise kicked off in 2011, its films have been a huge let down for fans of the “God of Thunder” and Marvel films in general. Audiences now have a third film to see Chris Hemsworth in action as the eponymous character the film is based on. I was never a huge fan of this film franchise, bu...

Pennywise the dancing clown preys on youth every 27 years. It's no coincidence that the mini series based on this horrifying being gets a motion picture 27 years following that mini series. As Dash's teacher in The Incredibles said: “Coincidence, I THINK NOT!” IT is a horror induced film and it is...

Taylor Swift has produced many different types of songs throughout her career.  However, her most recent single called  “Look What You Made Me Do,” takes that to a whole new level.  I think that the new song puts her in a phase that I'm not a fan of. Now I liked most of Swift’s old music. H...

Oh, how things have changed in the Internet age. It used to be that when your favorite band decides to sell out Madison Square Garden for their “farewell concert,” you would not see or hear from them for at least a very long time. But leave it to LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy who, after taki...

With the influx of bad hip hop piercing the airwaves this decade, it is refreshing to hear rappers bring new things to the table. New ideas and evolution are what remind me of why I love hip hop in the first place. Odd Future did just that when they released their debut mixtape in 2008. Although they...

One of my all-time favorite directors, Christopher Nolan, dawns the screen with an emotional, riveting, and captivating essence with this "World War II" drama-thriller. Unlike other war epics, Dunkirk has unrelenting heart and succeeds as a detailed and emotional film. However, there is something a litt...
