Review: Ocean’s 8 (2018)

My sister and I had long been excited for Ocean’s 8 because let’s face it, an all-female ensemble heist movie doesn’t get made very often. Heck, an all-female anything in Hollywood are few and far between despite the obvious fact that a lot of female-fronted films have been successful in the box office. Anyway, yesterday…

TV Review: Queer Eye (2018)

Soooo I just gobbled up the entire first season of Netflix’s Queer Eye. And I now have been saying things like: “Yaaas Queen”, “Ferosh”, “GORJ”, and “Can You Belive?!” I don’t think I have ever been this obsessed with a reality TV show since Survivor: All Stars circa 2003. And just so you know, Netflix’s Queer…

Review: Ready Player One (2018)

Ready Player One is a movie made specially for me. I love underdog stories. I love a good quest story. I love a good band/gang/team. I love nostalgia. I love 80s-90s pop culture. I love the idea of a virtual world existing in a grimy, worn-down real world. And for the most part, Ready Player…

SPOILERS AHEAD! Unless you are living under a rock, you’ve probably heard of a little indie movie called Black Panther and how it is such a historic success. And for the most part I totally think the hype is well deserved and here is why: Having seen this movie only yesterday, I don’t think I’ve…

Review: The Greatest Showman (2018)

And I could hear my pretentious self, protesting. But I suppose I have always been susceptible to musicals. And to Hugh Jackman, who made for…

Review: Justice League (2017)

A couple of months back, a three-level shopping mall just opened in our city, and with it came 6 cinemas. And for that I am thrilled because at least it will divide the crowds. Although I have come to realize that the crowds still converge on that other mall because this new one charges a…

Review: Thor: Ragnarok (2017)

I remember a couple of years back when Edgar Wright’s name was first attached to Ant Man, and everybody was excited. But sadly that excitement was short-lived as he went on to leave the film due to “creative differences”. After that, I assumed that Marvel Cinematic Universe operates on some sort of template, a set…
