    Taylor Swift is one of the biggest artists ever. There isn’t much room for debate with that. She breaks records like it was something that came naturally to her and for her she is an artist who defined a decade of music. You couldn’t go anywhere without hearing a single from Red or 1989 it was impossible. If fact you couldn’t go a moment in the music world without someone bringing up Taylor Swift. I think for me that moment…

    Dear Basketball

    ★★★★½

    Sometimes horrible things happen in life. Sometimes you have to ask what the hell is happening? Nothing seems to make sense and everything keeps falling apart. Today I woke up to the news of Kobe Bryant and his daughter dying in a helicopter crash. I’ll be honest and say I was never was much of a basketball fan but I will always have the memories of throwing paper, socks, trash, etc and shouting “Kobe”. I will always remember those moments.…

    The Devil's Candy

    ★★★½

    Violent and bloody in all the ways a movie like this should be. In its compact runtime it accomplishes so much with setting, character, and tone. It has the horror that we would expect from a midnight horror film but does so much more with the care put into the scares. The horror of having a stranger crawl into you bed is realized and tangential. Executed with deadly accuracy The Devil’s Candy is a compacted quick to go horror film filled…

    From the opening credits, I knew that this would be great. Bond has been known for its opening themes and titles. Between this and Skyfall I enjoy this one more. It has such a way of telling…

    I am not kidding this is the most annoying comedy special I have ever seen. I actually lost laughter to this special. Talking down to the audience doesn't make you smart or funny especially when you talk about common sense things. You see I'm an adult so I can be comprehensive about the world around me and how hard it can be but I an not an asshole about it. Especially when this one of the most aggravating pieces of…

    Thanks Disney I hate it. 

    I’ve never been a fan of these remakes albeit some exceptions are to be made for such films: Cinderella and The Jungle Book  I have yet to see Pete’s Dragon but I’m interested in seeing it because of the director alone. As for this...

    Let’s just say that this film takes an animated classic, and I don’t use that term lightly, and destroys it from the ground up. It had everything against it. I wish,…
