2016 – YEAR IN REVIEW

Another year has come to an end, which means it’s time to go over my favorite and least favorite films of 2016. A lot of people have been claiming 2016 was a weak year for films, but I disagree. If you mostly watch the big Hollywood tentpoles, […]

SILENCE

What’s this? A 17th century period piece telling the story about two Jesuit priests going to Japan to spread Christianity? Doesn’t sound like your typical Martin Scorsese vehicle, but here we are. 26 years in the making, Martin Scorsese has taken a break from the guns, drugs, […]

MOANA

Oh, Walt Disney Studios. You’re just the machine that keeps on giving… and growing. Going strong for nearly a century now, you’ve shaped the childhoods of multiple generations over countless features, shorts, shows, books, video games, board games, toys, blankets, and every other bit of merchandising imaginable.
