Teen Titans GO! To The Movies Review & Khary Payton Interview: A Cinematic Treat To Beat The Summer Heat

Teen Titans GO! To The Movies is adorably ridiculous and delightfully intense. And yes the new theme song is “epically dope”. Better yet, it’s a perfect gateway superhero movie for kids and “what..ANOTHER superhero movie?!” family members to enjoy together. If only for that butt humor. Oh, yes, the butt jokes are strong in this one. Robin (Scott Menville), leader […]

‘Upgrade’ Is One of the Best Genre Films of the Summer (Spoiler-Free Review)

This sci-fi/action film showcases what it would be like if The Six Million Dollar Man met John Wick. The result: an intense and shockingly violent film, with amazing fight choreography, a dash of body horror, and a grim twist.

Calling All Geeks! Ready Player One Challenge Brings All the Nerds to the Yard.

I am greeted by the stacks.  The stacks are the slums of the dystopian future from the Ready Player One universe.

‘A Wrinkle In Time’ Combines Adventure and Important Messages for the Entire Family – Review

I will preface this review by admitting that I went into this film completely blind. Although I knew of Madeleine L’Engle’s classic novel beforehand, I’ve never read it. So, I didn’t quite know what to expect other than my own thoughts based on what I’d witnessed within the trailers. When I did finally get to see the movie on the […]
