Review: Save Yourselves! (2020)

By |2020-09-25T23:22:33+00:00September 28th, 2020|Reviews, TV & Movies|0 Comments

Save Yourselves! (2020) is a film that walks the line between absurdist humor and horror in such a way that it can be both about surviving an alien invasion and escaping from the technological trap that is 21st century life. With relatable characters and the perfect amount of tension, this is a must-watch film in a year where so many of us exist at the intersection of physical isolation and digital dependence.

Movie Review: Onward (2020)

By |2020-03-06T18:37:26+00:00March 6th, 2020|Reviews, TV & Movies|0 Comments

Onward (2020), the latest original offering from Disney Pixar Studios, is a charming tale of brotherly love set in a classic roadtrip film style and is laden with dungeons and dragons references (in the best possible way). It's got adventure, magic, humor, and is an all-around fun and heart-warming film.

Movie Review: Birds of Prey (2020)

By |2020-02-08T20:11:28+00:00February 8th, 2020|Reviews, TV & Movies|0 Comments

Birds of Prey: And the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn (2020) is one of the most fun flicks I've seen in a theater in a long time. This is a kick-ass, violent technicolor stream of strong women overcoming their abuse cycles to come together and win the day. It's well-conceived, well-written, and executed far better than many comic-book team-ups before it.

Movie Review: The Lion King (2019)

By |2019-07-24T05:29:52+00:00July 24th, 2019|Reviews, TV & Movies|0 Comments

Disney's remake of The Lion King hit theaters this week to mixed reviews. As someone who grew up loving the original film, I wanted to see for myself whether the remake would reach the level of the original. I'm here to tell you the good, the bad, and whether (in my opinion) this film even needed to be made.

Late to the Party but Into the Spider-Verse

By |2019-01-16T18:34:53+00:00January 17th, 2019|Reviews, TV & Movies|0 Comments

Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is one of the most creative takes on a comic-book film that I've seen in a long time, and not only that-- it's also just a downright fantastic Spider-Man movie. I am so, so late to this party, but party it is, and I don't want you to miss it, too.

Movie Review: Ant Man and the Wasp **SPOILER FREE**

By |2018-07-06T06:22:42+00:00July 6th, 2018|Reviews, TV & Movies|0 Comments

Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) is fun and entertaining but largely stays away from the intensity of the main Avengers sequence without forgetting that larger world's context. It's the first Marvel movie since Infinity War and thankfully we are handed some lighter fare. If you're looking for a summer comic book movie flick with an ass-kicking female hero, this is the movie for you.

Movie Review: Incredibles 2 *SPOILER FREE*

By |2018-06-15T06:01:41+00:00June 15th, 2018|Reviews, TV & Movies|1 Comment

We've waited 14 years for this film: The Incredibles 2 opens this weekend to about as much anticipation as any Disney/Pixar sequel can have. And while audiences have been waiting over a decade for this one, it seems like Disney has finally decided to go all-in with the Incredible-Family: Disneyland's new "Pixar Pier" opens later this month with the signature featured ride, the "Incredicoaster", occupying a massive footprint on the retooled boardwalk. But enough about that-- let's talk about the movie! And don't worry: this is a spoiler-free zone.

The Bellas’ Final Performance Now Available on Blu-Ray

By |2018-03-26T20:52:07+00:00March 26th, 2018|Reviews, TV & Movies|0 Comments

It feels fitting to be writing a review of Pitch Perfect 3 right after celebrating the 5th Geek Girl Pen Pals birthday celebration. Why? Because of community! Pitch Perfect is about a group of young women who over time discover the importance of their relationships with each other. This third and final installment of the movies takes to heart that message of chosen family and the support and trust we give to our chosen family as we continue to move forward in life.
