These movies made us cry, made us laugh, connected with us, inspired us and reminded us of how great films can be.

An Obsession With the Bodies of Superhero Actors: Body Shaming, Sexual Harassment, and Objectification

Superheroes have been drawn with ridiculously and unnaturally perfect bodies from the get-go and that’s fine, sometimes it even adds to the entertainment. The exaggerated curves, bulges, and muscles are often so absurd it’s laughable. While that’s all great, no healthy human being can obtain these bodies in real life, especially if that human has a schedule that demanding of […]

‘The Originals’: 5 Things for a Season 5 Goodbye

The Originals comes to a conclusion after a five-season run. Am I slightly sentimental? Yes. Will I cry? Probably. But I shall cry to amazingly emo indie soundtrack, making my former high school self super proud. The spinoff to The Vampire Diaries first aired in 2014, with the first Original making an appearance in the show’s second season. I don’t think […]

‘The Dark Knight’ – Ten Years Later

Ten years ago, The Dark Knight premiered and became one of the most iconic cinematic tellings of a Batman story.

Book Review: ‘Dread Nation’ by Justina Ireland

You have never read a book like Justina Ireland’s Dread Nation. No, I’m not reaching by saying this. It is absolutely true. I was mildly apprehensive about reading a YA (Young Adult) book involving zombies and a girl fighting them. See, I’m not wildly crazy about zombies in general. It took me six years to finally start watching The Walking […]

‘Dread Nation’ Live-Action Fancast

This week many African-Americans across the country celebrated the holiday of Juneteenth: the day when the last of the enslaved African-Americans were freed on June 19th, 1865 in Texas after the end of the American Civil War. This holiday has certainly gained more widespread notoriety around the country and, as such, I thought it only fitting to do a live-action […]

‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’ Needs To Do More Than Just Feature A Diverse Cast To Give Them Justice

Pacific Rim: Uprising is now available on physical home release, but there is one much-needed conversation that has been left on the backburner ever since it hit theaters in March. This conversation does not concern the massive Kaiju or Jaeger mechs that the series has become well known for. This talk only revolves around the multiple ways people of color […]
