Movie Review

What I’m looking forward to in 2024

Happy New Year! 2023 had a lot of ups and downs in terms of pop culture, and I’m looking forward to a fresh start and to what’s ahead. This is the year we (hopefully! finally!) get to see Dune: Part 2 and my regional comic con is celebrating its 25th

Year in review: My favorite stories of 2023

10. TIE – Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Mutant Mayhem and Wonka I know that it’s sort of cheating to do a tie, but I really enjoyed both these films and couldn’t bear to leave one off the list. I loved the animation style of the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,

Content catch-up: What I’ve been watching recently – Part 3

December felt like a VERY busy month for new content, and before I release my end of year wrap up, I wanted to get caught up on reviewing a few more of the films and TV shows I saw in 2023. Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom This movie was…OK. It

Movie review: The Creator

Movie review: A Haunting in Venice
