'Sonic The Hedgehog' Leaps Into Our Hearts, But Doesn't Quite Reach Its Full Potential – Review

It was not that long ago when the world was shown the first look of Sonic (voiced by Ben Schwartz) from Paramount’s Sonic the Hedgehog.

Now that Sonic the Hedgehog […]

Sundance 2020: 'Mucho Mucho Amor' is the Beautiful and Worthy Reflection of Latinx Icon Walter Mercado We Need – Review

Walter Mercado needs no introduction to a Latinx audience. The Puerto Rican Astrologer first took Latin America by storm with his televised horoscopes in the 70s.

The CW's 'Crisis on Infinite Earths' is a Celebration of the Superhero Genre – Review

The CW has managed to surpass all expectations yet again. It’s no easy feat to make a 5-hour anything consistently entertaining, but the network just does it anyway. Why? Because they can.
