A Quiet Place plot hole?

For a horror movie, A Quiet Place wasn’t all that scary. I usually avoid horror movies like the plague, but Emily Blunt is my “Rachel Platten of Movies”, so I decided to give it a chance. (If you’ve read my blog at all, you already know how important Rachel Platten is to me). However, there seems to […]

Tweet vs. Twitter Post

It’s no secret that President Trump loves to tweet. What I’ve noticed, however, is how news articles refer to this activity. Some say something like “[Trump said] in a Twitter post”, while others say “tweeted” or “said in a tweet”. Personally, I think “Twitter post” is a mouthful. It’s much easier to say “so and […]

Mary Poppins Returns

Summary Years after her first visit, Mary Poppins returns to help the Banks family – Michael, his sister Jane, and his children John, Anabel, and Georgie – through difficult times. Review This movie was magical. There’s no other way to say it. It was almost like Emily Blunt and Lin-Manuel Miranda were crashing a mini […]

Guess What, I’m a Millennial

I came across another BuzzFeed News article the other day. This time, though, it’s something I completely agree with. Millennials. We were born at some point between 1981 and 1996. So, I came into play two years before the cutoff. At first, life was easy enough. I did well in school, I had friends (to an […]

Mary, Queen of Scots

Josie Rourke brought John Guy’s book to life. His book, Queen of Scots:  The True Life of Mary Stuart, tells the story of the relationship between Mary, Queen of Scots, and her sister, Elizabeth I. Rourke took the source material and jogged with it. The saying goes, “took [insert thing here] and ran with it”, but the movie took few creative liberties, if it […]

Is Barnes & Noble desperate?

Lately, I’ve been seeing commercials for Barnes & Noble here and there. It’s kind of weird, because I’ve never seen a commercial for a book store in my living memory. At first, I though it was cool; my favorite store does commercials now. But then I thought about it. Why would they be making commercials […]

Christmas Movie Predictability

During the holidays, there’s nothing quite like curling up on the couch or in bed with a Christmas movie. They make us feel warm and fuzzy, and like everything is going to be okay. And it works, because that’s how we want to feel at Christmas. However, Christmas movies always seem to follow the same, […]

BuzzFeed, please read!

Recently, BuzzFeed News ran an article about why the Divergent movie franchise was a flop. This is a refutation of that article. Their Argument BuzzFeed is basically arguing that Divergent didn’t work as a movie because the plot was too confusing: One possible reason for its collapse is the weakness of the source material. The structure […]
