  • Star Trek ‘Beyond’ Review: Just Like Coming Home

    From the moment you hear the quiet introductory bars of Michael Giacchino’s theme song, a feeling of fond familiarity settles in.

  • Ghostbusters: I Ain’t Afraid of No Girls

    Rarely have I seen so much vitriol hurled at a movie, beginning long before its release.

  • Movie Review: So B. It

    I don’t want to be too spoilery in my review of So B. It because I really think that this is a movie that everyone can and should watch. It’s directed by Stephen Gyllenhaal and is based on the novel of the same name written by Sarah Weeks. So B. It tells the story a young girl named […]
