Shangri-La: Near Extinction: Great Story, Too many Flashbacks

Review: Avengers Endgame: Epic

I think all fans were waiting with breathless fervor. While I saw the film and want to give a review, this won’t be a review that spoils the movie for the fans who haven’t seen it yet. That means this will be a bit shorter than my usual in-depth analysis but I can assure you […]

Santa Clarita Diet Season 3 Funnier and More Hilarious

If you haven’t watched this Netflix original, it’s time. It’s one of the funniest takes on zombies that I’ve ever seen.

It is original, it is dynamic, and the comedy gets better […]

Shazam!: Family and Fun

“Shazam!” is all about family. Whatever others may write about it, at the heart, it is about connection, family, and togetherness, wherever you find your home and whoever your family is. I found it heartfelt, lighthearted, funny and one of the best DC movies, right up with Wonder Woman and the best of the Marvel […]
