Mid90’s Review: An Innovative Story That Falls Short

Although Mid90’s was written and directed by Jonah Hill, he did not act in any part of this movie. Instead, he chose to showcase his talent with others in the forefront. This film is artistic and uncomfortable; sometimes on purpose, other times purely from accidental oversight and missteps. It is not a movie that fans of Hill’s acting would like because it possesses a dark, twisted cle...[Read More]

Independence Day: Resurgence Review

Independence Day: Resurgence Review If you’ve not taken a look yet at some of the reviews for Independence Day: Resurgence, spoiler alert, they’re not kind. With scores of 34% on Metacritic and 34% on Rotten Tomatoes the skies are dark indeed. However, this fan was more than satisfied with the ‘popcorn chaos’ that ensued. Despite being far too back from the screen for my li...[Read More]

The Jungle Book Review

The Jungle Book “Forget about your worries and your strife”   Movies have slowly become a family tradition for me: I have a lot of fond memories driving up to the local Harkins with my Mom and Brother and seeing more movies than I can remember during my 27 years (bloody hell I’m getting old.) This tradition has introduced me to some truly crappy movies (I’m looking at you The Fifth Wave) and some ...[Read More]

Maybe some of your earliest memories are of watching weathered copies of the original trilogy on VHS.

Review: The Phoenix Symphony – Pixar in Concert

This may be becoming a theme for my articles, but I should put a disclaimer here at the beginning of this review.  I don’t really consider myself a fanboy when it comes to anything that I enjoy. I try to have an objective opinion about anything that I put time into for recreation. This applies to everything I enjoy… everything except for Pixar.  When it comes to Pixar, everything they ...[Read More]

Connecting with Amiibos

The world of Amiibos is familiar to only a selective few. Many people don’t know about Amiibos, or at least don’t understand the draw of them. Needless to say, I am not one of these people. I have been sucked into the world of Amiibos forcefully and willingly. These simple figurines have brought me back to my childhood, when Nintendo was my everything, when I could depend on them to cr...[Read More]
