If that is what you are looking to watch, the latest Netflix original film, Sierra Burgess is a Loser, is just for you. The film came out on Friday, Sept. 7, not ...

Within the past two years, Hollywood has seen a newfound interest in movies starring non-majority groups; blockbusters like “Call Me By Your Name” (2017) and “Moonlight” (2016), which prominently feature LGBTQ+ relationships, as well as movies like “BlacKkKlansman” (2018), “Black Panther” (2018) and “Get Out” (2017), which feature African Americans a...

Watched the movie once with my best friend. Watched it again 15 minutes later with my mom and my best friend. It was just that good. The shy girl who never shared her feelings. The dashingly handsome guy who was “way out of her league.” Sounds like the cliche chick-flick right? This could...

Wes Anderson wasn’t a name I was familiar with until recently; although, I do remember seeing Fantastic Mr. Fox, another Wes Anderson stop-action film, in theaters close to 10 years ago. While I vaguely recalled the movie, the trailers for Isle of Dogs gave me hope that I would see a pretty decent mov...

I was disappointed. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a good movie. It just wasn’t what I was expecting. I went into Ready Player One super excited, because I couldn’t put the book down. I read the book in preparation for the movie, which is a bad idea. I wouldn’t recommend the movie to anyon...

I never read A Wrinkle In Time, so I wasn’t sure what to expect from the movie. While the CGI is beautiful and there are one or two touching moments, I’ve had more fun talking with my grandparents about politics than watching this film. As a whole, A Wrinkle in Time has a cheesy story line filled...

I walked into the theater to see Black Panther with my excitement in check. I constantly reminded myself that this movie, no matter how big the hype, is still a Marvel movie. This is the same studio that gave us some not so good movies like Iron Man 2, Thor: The Dark World, and Avengers: Age of Ultron, yet ...
