REVIEW: SPACE FORCE SEASON 1

“Oh, he is blowing it just like you thought. Yeah, it is a complete shit-show.” When the news first broke about President Donald Trump’s new military branch called, Space Force, I stated on Twitter that it sounded like something The Office’s, Dwight Schrute, would make up to feel important.

REVIEW: SCOOB! (2020)

“Gross amounts of hair oil, twelve-year-old scotch…” “Is the bad guy my Dad?” I never classified myself as a lover of the original Scooby Doo television series.

TOP 5: NATALIE WOOD PERFORMANCES

My admiration for Natalie Wood started when I was young. Introduced though my mother’s love for the actress, the name Natalie Wood stayed in my head. I would not be exposed to her movies until years later, but since my first viewing of West Side Story, I went further down the rabbit hole – in…

REVIEW: BAD EDUCATION (2020)

“You might forget, but we don’t. We never forget. Ever.” There are always those school teachers that give us a helping hand, and we are forever reminded of their goodness. Then there’s those teachers we don’t remember at all. And finally, there are those teachers, who we remember, but not for anything good. Bad Education…

SERIES REVIEW: LITTLE FIRES EVERYWHERE (2020)

“It’s actually more of a question. Is fighting for someone else’s child worth losing your own?” Who set fire to the Richardson’s home? It’s a question that we must have answered!
