Almost Great: Jojo Rabbit Review

When watching a movie it is rare that I find myself struggling to formulate an opinion on it. A movie that really does not have anything necessarily wrong with it, yet there is just nothing about it that strikes me as unique, nothing about it that inspires reaction out of me. It is not a bad movie, ...

From the vibrant colors, beautiful foreign landscapes, the great expanse of space viewed from the cockpit of your ship; “The Outer Worlds” is absolutely breathtaking.

Jesus is King, but Kanye is Meh

If I know anything about Kanye West at this point in my life, it’s that he is a great producer. And in “Jesus is King”, his latest effort released last Friday night, is an impeccably produced album with great beats. But at this point, this is merely Kanye’s baseline. When he raps, it is better ...

Falling Short of Expectations: El Camino Review

“El Camino”, directed by Vince Gilligan, is truly average in every sense of the word. There is not a single scene that sticks out to me as anything extraordinary. I’m not saying that there is anything inherently wrong with the movie either, and it definitely serves as a worthwhile epilogue to ...

No Laughing Matter: Joker Review

Horrifically beautiful, unimaginably uncomfortable, and all too real.

It truly sheds off ...
