Places like Los Angeles, New York and Paris have always been staples in film. As a result, I’d always subconsciously look down on anyone who was either “#sacramentoproud” or had an adjacent mentality, it seemed like someone would only claim the city with that lousy yellow bridge and short, underwhelming...

    Going into "Justice League" I had the lowest of expectations, in fact, I only had expectations because the DCEU seemed to be on an upswing after "Wonder Woman" practically won the summer movie season. Unfortunately, it seems the DCEU has taken a step back, with "Justice League"s quality being on par...

I've listened to dozens of podcasts across many genres. "Criminal" is an all-time favorite of mine. Excellent stories told through the excellent...

It's a mistake to refer to this rendition of the 'Murder on the Orient Express' as a mystery. It's a hilarious comedy with beautiful visuals and talented actors, but hardly a mystery. With talented actors such as Johnny Depp, Daisley Ridley and Judi Dench, the cast has a great line up, although perha...
