Wonder Woman: A Leap in the Right Direction

While I thoroughly enjoyed this film, I do think it had some hiccups.  While I think it’s having a Marvel-type effect on audiences [but finally for a DC film], meaning, people loving it for it finally being here, I do not feel as if the love is unwarranted.  I’m thrilled it’s getting accolades, but I […]


In case you missed it… Brandenn and I won this year’s AMC’s™ Talking Dead’s Ultimate Fan contest. The experience was… tremendous.  To all those who supported and promoted, we graciously thank you.

How Buffy The Vampire Slayer Has Changed My Life

My first experience with Buffy was through the film, starring Kristy Swanson.  I was entertained; I was inspired.  I think people can say what they want about the film, but the reality is, it laid the foundation for the show.  Buffy the Vampire Slayer was among one of the first reboots of that decade.  When the […]

Why THE WALKING DEAD Is More Than Just A TV Show

The Walking Dead has somehow simultaneously become both water cooler talk and cult classic.  It’s in a strange middle ground, as it has a powerful group of dedicated fans that are neither small, nor quiet.  The Walking Dead is a genre show, but is also incredibly mainstream, with episodes having as many as 17M viewers.

The holidays are here, and there’s no better way to get into the Christmas spirit than watching a holiday film or two.  We all know the usual suspects — It’s a Wonderful Life, A Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Story Home Alone — but here’s an alternate list [in no particular order]: Die Hard First let […]

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” Review

Spoiler Alert: Mads Mikkelsen plays the good guy. Let me start this piece by saying that, I adore the original films, and I loved “Star Wars: The Force Awakens.”  Not just because it had original characters and continued the story I’m invested in, but because Daisy Ridley and John Boyega were absolutely adorable and engaging and […]

“Loving” Movie Review

Spoiler alert: Nothing happens in this film. Let me begin this by saying that five years ago, I saw the documentary for the case of Loving v. Virginia on HBO–“The Loving Story.”  The documentary was engaging, well edited, and held my attention.  It is without question how important this case was, and the Loving couple […]

Chris Tucker and the Art of Conversation

I remember the first time I saw Chris Tucker.  On screen, I mean. I was at my aunt’s house, watching “Friday” for the first time.  The film begins kind of…lethargic, as Craig (Ice Cube) is just waking up.  About seven minutes in, we’re all shocked awake with Tucker’s loud, cartoonish voice: “Break yo’ self, fool!” […]
