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.

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.

One of the highlights for the horror genre in the past couple of years was the Netflix original The Haunting of Hill House—loosely based on the book of the same name by Shirley Jackson.

The Boys (Season 2)—A Diabolically Brilliant Season of Television

By far one of the greatest shows in both the comic book genre and in Amazon’s catalogue was and remains to be The Boys. When season 1 hit last year, it took the world by storm with its hard-R spin on the superhero tropes that our culture has been absolutely obsessed with, particularly in these …
