Every year, the GRAMMY awards are a disappointment. Throughout the past years it’s been unclear whether they vote for the best of the category or the most popular of the category (let’s not forget that in 2014, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “The Heist” beat out Kendrick Lamar’s “good kid ...

In 2012, audiences first saw the talents of the “Barden Bellas.” Five years later, the beloved singing-with-your-mouth, no instruments, trilogy ends here. It's obvious that the ladies in the film are vocally gifted, but they failed miserably to be funny. Thankfully this franchise is over because ...

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...

Taylor Swift is one of the biggest artists of the generation and one of the most talked about regarding celebrity feuds. Whether or not you like her, she has talent and her products sell crazy numbers. Since her transition from the innocent, country girl in 2010 with her “Speak Now” album to the ta...

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...

British charm meets the American psycho. It is no doubt that the predecessor of the “Golden Circle” was wacky and chaotic beyond belief. But the sequel to 2014’s “ Kingsman: The Secret Service” may be wilder than before. What this sequel has the opportunity to do is provide even more demented ...

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...
