Captain Marvel Review…

909
Come to think of it, Captain Marvel shares a lot in common with the controversy surrounding it. It’s pitifully generic, serves little purpose to the MCU, and ends up feeling pointless at the end of the day. You’ll have the internet warriors on both sides either defending/praising or attacking…

Aquaman Review

2146
The DC Extended Universe has suffered very strong reactions from a lot of people. With Zack Snyder directing the majority of films in the anthology, most of DC’s big hitter ended up being critical blunders, with very few exceptions. Well, only one exception and that being Patty Jenkins’ Wonder…

Spider-Man: Into the…

2928
The moment I laid my eyes on the newest animated Spider-Man feature film from Sony, the visual style alone earned my cash. The vibrancy of the colors and the seamless blend with realistic CGI and exaggerated cartoon nature of a comic book never fails to amaze my eyes. Once…

I must admit, originally I only started watching Riverdale because Cole Sprouse was in it. However, as I continued to watch, I grew more attached to the other characters and the main plot of the story. Riverdale has since become my #1 TV series from last year, and will…

Avengers: Infinity War:…

754
While I was incredibly excited for Marvel’s previous film Black Panther, my expectations were relatively low for Avengers: Infinity War. Maybe it was from my disappointment from Age of Ultron or the over-saturation of Marvel movies. Maybe it was from the unremarkable marketing of the film. Personally, I thought the trailers looked…

Black Panther Review:…

777
I’ve been unusually excited for this movie. From the marketing to the raving reviews, everything about Black Panther had me hyped and I was exuberant when I saw the massive line in the theater. Movies are best experienced with a packed stage. Unfortunately, finally seeing one of the most anticipated…

The Importance of…

While writing my English paper, I felt a strong desire to play Killzone 3. Even though I don’t even own Killzone 3, I felt an urge to buy it. This sudden mood occurred while the musical score of Killzone 3 streamed in a separate YouTube tab on my browser.…

I was going to write this whole review while I was upside down, but I realized early on that it was too much work. The blood rushing to my brain might have been another factor. Anyway, here is my upright, spoiler-free review of Stranger Things season 2. Stranger Things…
