    6. Watch a film starring a singer. Rina Sawayama

    When I review speech in high school, most my Division I ratings come in three categories. The first is no/minimal notes. The presentation I saw has minor tweaks to improve, but if I was seeing it at state, it's on my All-State ballot.
    Tier two is there are issues, but most of them if a student works at them, they're going to represent well…

    Yeah, don't answer the door for this one.

    A bloated affair with a deviation from the original source material that shows Shymalan just does twists with no sense of what it means. Also, very, very close to being a hate crime no matter how much they try to assuage it is not a hate crime for what they are attempting.

    Dave Bautista's career is still one of my favorite people to follow, though, and him playing a murderous zealot who…

    26. Studio Ghibli movies are so cute and wholesome and always are there to cheer my mood up. Watch a Studio Ghibli film.

    Not seen this much turtle abuse on screen since Tampopo and TMNT II:The Secret of the Ooze...

    A mostly silent film, beautifully animated, but just doesn't have that same spark as some other Ghibli films have had.

    "If it bleeds, we can kill it."

    A stripped down Predator vs. human that tries to do what Predators with Adrien Brody tried years ago, except that was riddled with more predators to humans.

    Here, it's one apex predator versus several humans, and the body count gets visceral and brutal as the film goes on.

    It revitalizes the threat the Predator was in Predator and even Predator 2, while avoiding the comic pratfalls of Alien vs. Predator and Alien Vs.…

  • Rosaline



    Move over Rosencratz and Guildenstern, there's a new protagonist adjacent to the Bard's tragedies audiences are going to adore.

    Kaitlyn Dever again hands in a fantastic performance as Romeo's jealous ex.

    Especially when the girl her ex falls for is her cousin, Juliet, played by Isabela Merced.

    Of course, if you've taken high school English, we all know how the stories of the starcrossed lovers of Verona fares, and much Rosencratz and Guildenstern, the humor is watching where these two…
