Godzilla vs. Kong (2021)—Review

I love kaiju films. From the very first King Kong (1933) to the incredible reign of Toho films, beginning with Godzilla (1954), to our new age of films such as Peter Jackson’s King Kong (2005), Pacific Rim (2013), and Shin Godzilla (2016).

Sweet Home (Season 1)—Netflix’s Live Action Take On Korean Webtoon Promises A Strong New Franchise

I have always been a fan of foreign cinema and television, particularly properties from Japan and France. However, it wasn’t until I sat down to watch the high-octane and dramatic zombie thriller Train to Busan (2016) that Korean properties really grabbed my attention and instantly captivated me. A big appeal to Korean films and shows …

Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom—Boseman’s Swan Song May Be His Greatest Performance

One of the hardest losses in the pop-culture sphere during the mayhem of 2020 was the life of Chadwick Boseman. While he was best known for his role as Marvel’s King T’Challa, the Black Panther, Boseman had a career filled with great performances.

Soul—Pixar Never Fails to Delight With the Metaphysical

The last film I got to see in theaters before the initial theater shutdown back in March was Pixar’s Onward which hit every mark and instantly became one of my favorite Pixar films. With Pixar’s fantastic reputation of creating films that I absolutely adore, I was extremely excited for their second film on the 2020 …
