The majority of people have some kind of familiarity with Jerry Seinfeld. Whether it be from the aptly titled “Seinfeld” show he created with Larry David which became one of the most popular sitcoms of all time, his observational stand-up comedy which was so remarkable that Comedy Central named him t...

It is amazing how many franchises seem to be reaching climactic endings this year. The Marvel Cinematic Universe will end their big story arc with “Avengers: Endgame” next month. “Game of Thrones” will start its final season this April as well. Now, we have the end to the nine-year-long “How...

Audiences have been clamoring for years to see a major blockbuster female-led superhero movie. DC won that race in 2017 with the release of “Wonder Woman,” which lived up to all of the hype surrounding it and made millions at the box office. Now, in an ironic twist of fate, Marvel has been playing...

I believe what I immediately said was ‘Good Grief. No.’ Not another do-good superhero show. Not another show trying too hard to be ironic and dark that I would have to suffer through. However, after episode one, I realized that this dark, twisted version of those genres was exactly what Netflix and I needed.

I cannot believe this movie is bombing at the box office. Can someone please explain this to me? "The Lego Movie" was one of the biggest movies to hit 2014, with some people even angry that it was not nominated for Best Animated Film. Now, after some a couple spin-offs to hold us together, they have finally released the direct sequel, the literal "Second Part!" And if you ask me, it is just as good as the first one.

I cannot stress how much you need to see "Serenity." Steven Knight is either an evil genius, a complete lunatic or some amalgamation of the two. It is easily the next big “so bad it’s good” film, and I hope/cannot wait for it to officially gain that cult status.

“Marian, or The True Tale Of Robin Hood” gives a fresh, new twist on the age-old tale of Robin Hood. This contemporary version reveals gender bending Maid Marian as Robin Hood, champion of the poor. She and her troupe experience ambivalence regarding gender and sexuality and try to find the line between romance and ‘bromance.’

Our favorite “Gossip Girl” creeper, Dan Humphrey, leveled up in Netflix's newly acquired series “You” as a full-fledged stalker sociopath. The 10-episode first season, based on the book by Caroline Kepnes, contains just enough teen genre stars to catch your attention.

Well, we made it everyone! 2018 was not the easiest year to make it through at times, and the films released definitely reflected that. In my opinion, few movies are without flaws, and it is now time to count the worst of what this year had to offer.

Christmas is meant to be a time where families of all kind, biological and blended, come together in the spirit of love and giving. That’s why I think its great to have a film or two in theatres during the season that upholds the values of unconditional love. This year’s offering is "Instant Family," the latest offering from writer-director Sean Anders.
