    With it being pride month, I figured that now would be a good time to officially announce myself as a member of the LGBT+ community. I have told a few people about this relatively recently, but I’ve never actually announced it publicly, so I figured there’s no better time than right now. I fall somewhere between bisexual and pansexual. I’m still unsure of the specific label I identify with, but it’s important to just get it out there about this…

    Hey everyone, this is likely the most personal review I’ll ever write, and one of the toughest reviews I’ve ever written and shared with people. I’m going to share something that I’ve never shared with anyone, how I am inextricably linked to this film.

    When I was a child, I was sexually abused. I don’t have a lot of recollection of the event since I was only 5 or 6, but it very much so happened and this film has…

    This documentary is about a man who is truly one of a kind. A true pioneer in the world of rock climbing and mountaineering, a man who is almost completely unknown, and is satisfied with it being that way. There is something so inspiring about this man completing mountain climbs that were thought to be impossible with almost no effort or care. He doesn’t even want to be known, he does the climbs for the thrill of the it and…

    An undeniable fun time. It feels like PTA's loosest, most easygoing film. It has some of the trademarks of a great PTA film, and it reminds me a lot of Boogie Nights and Punch-Drunk Love in many ways. However, there are some elements to this film that I found to be pretty problematic in ways that don't sit right with me after thinking about them for a little bit. The film centers itself around the friendship between a 15 year…

    Yes, you saw that right. I absolutely could not stand this film. I have never in my entire life had such a visceral hatred for a film. I genuinely think this might be the worst film I have EVER seen. I am just racking my brain trying to think of one, just ONE, redeemable quality of Gran Torino, but I seriously cannot find a single thing that I liked about this, and I am just seething after watching this.

    I am sort of a nature junkie. Anyone one here who knows me well can confirm that I have a sort of obsession with nature and the diverse wildlife you can find everywhere. Very often, I go to a local nature preserve where I volunteer in removing invasive plant species to just hang out and observe the wildlife. There's this one bridge over a body of water that I like to go to to just observe. I'll sit there for…
