The Miami Showband Massacre: Documentary Review

From wanting to learn about the Irish Beatles, I was hooked by the documentary that reflects a lot of the conflict that the world is still suffering from — the violence, the death, the political motivations that fuel these atrocities.

Its exciting to watch these amazing ideas come to life, especially ones that push the envelope and mainstream boundaries. To say that I’m impressed would be an understatement. … Read More Love, Death + Robots: Series Review

‘Spider-man: Into the Spiderverse’ Movie Review

All in all, Spider-man: Into the Spiderverse managed to tap into the elements that makes Spider-man such a popular action hero and inject a fresh approach to jumpstart an expansion of the franchise. Into the Spider-verse, was fun, funky, interesting, intense and inspiring for young fans. The artwork, cinematography and music were on point and really made the movie come together as a strong, solid addition to the franchise.
