The Significance of Serenity

Serenity is a 2019 psychological thriller starring Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway. At first glance, the movie is exactly as advertised: Karen Zakarias (Anne Hathaway) tries to solicit her ex-husband, Baker Dill (Matthew McConaughey) to kill her current husband so she and her son can get away from his abuse. Like any thriller, things get […]

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu

Grown up and disenchanted by the world of Pokémon, Tim Goodman (Justice Smith) reluctantly helps a talking Pikachu (Ryan Reynolds) solve the mystery of his past. In a word, this movie is nostalgic.

Maybe enough people complained about the switch that they decided to put it back on Apple Podcasts? Whatever happened yesterday, I hope it’s not a fluke. I hope they release the rest of season […]

Neville v. Nagini

Who doesn’t remember when Neville killed Nagini at the end of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows? It was cinematically awesome. Neville sliced her head off nice and clean. Another horcrux had been destroyed. However, something struck me as I was watching Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald awhile back: Neville Longbottom didn’t just kill […]
