Random Person: So, I hear there is new Drake music out. Me: Ah yes, you mean the “More Life” playlist. Playlist? It’s basically just a new album, but he’s calling it a playlist. The reason for this might be because it’s just available on streaming platforms, or it doesn’t really have any structure like you […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Saban’s Power Rangers’ is loads better than it has any right to be

I’ll be honest, I’ve never watched an episode of “Power Rangers” in my life, to which some people respond to with an almost shocking sense of disbelief. As a child, I gravitated towards more comedic properties like Disney sitcoms and Nickelodeon animated shows, but never really ever felt like getting into anything particularly action related. […]

‘Requiem of Solace’: Finding Comfort in Mourning

The flick of a page, the dimming of the lights, the flowing sway of the choir. That, on its own level, was mesmerizing. When the words suddenly breached my mind, and invested it with verses of death and life, I knew I was trapped. My sporadic thoughts of what it all meant were suddenly hushed, […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘The Belko Experiment’ is gruesomely dull

Both films (and their literary predecessors) revolve around an oppressive national […]
