Cats Movie Review

Since the trailer debut in July, Cats has been the talk of the Internet with many people calling it “nightmare fuel” due to the use of “digital fur technology” that blends actor’s faces with the body of a CGI cat. It’s a strange effect that makes the film look downright

Better Late than Never blog series…goes west!

For a long time, I thought that I didn’t like westerns. Whatever the reason, this genre just didn’t seem to speak to me personally. However, in 2018 I decided to do a blog series called “Better Late than Never,” where I started catching up on some classic movies I’d never

Best of 2019: Entertainment year in review

It may have gotten off to a bit of a slow start, but 2019 really was a great year for movies and TV. When I was compiling my list of personal favorites, I had to limit myself to 10, because this list could have easily gotten out of hand. It

Movie review: ‘Harriet’ tells true story of real-life hero from history

I saw a trailer for the historical biopic “Harriet” — about American icon and freedom fighter Harriet Tubman —
