    REVIEW FOR SEASON 3 of BARRY (HBO)

    ”forgiveness is something that has to be earned”

    This season of Barry was a season that I thought took the show to another level where now it’s up there with the great TV Shows. With the show ending with a great cliffhanger in Season 2, you felt like the show was never going to be the same and there was an excitement about it.

    Barry, despite a show being 30 minutes is a…

  • Hustle

    Hustle

    ★★★½

    "do you love this game?"

    Hustle is a movie I was quite excited about seeing as a big basketball fan. Being a movie produced by Lebron James, you knew it was going to make a concerted effort to get the basketball right while also providing a look into a world of sports that we just don’t see when it comes to scouts and how they’re pretty much working nonstop and its’ quite a thankless job if you think about it.…

  • Top Gun: Maverick

    Top Gun: Maverick

    ★★★★½

    "They're called orders, Maverick"

    Top Gun Maverick is just one of those movies where no matter what was happening in your life, you just had to go see it in the theatre. It just wasn’t meant to go to streaming at all and I’m glad Tom Cruise stuck to his guns. It’s the one movie where I thought that no matter what happens to movie theatres, Top Gun Maverick was like our light at the end of the tunnel. It’s…

  • Rush

    Rush

    ★★★★

    "The risk of death turns people on."

    Rush is one of those sports movies that have a fascinating legacy to it, where the people that love it will say it's one of the great sports memories of recent memory. Now Rush wouldn't even be a movie but probably a miniseries and thank god it isn't. Sports movies are in an interesting era where now they've evolved into character-driven dramas such as The Wrestler, The Way Back, or Moneyball, tapping into…

  • Take This Waltz

    Take This Waltz

    ★★★★½

    "Does he cook a lot of chicken?”

    This is one of those movies where you can tell when it came out that people saw it and just easily forgot about it and went on to the next one. But there were probably a few people who watched this in 2011 when it first came out where there was something about it that spoke to them where its' brutally honest and provoking dialogue just rings inside your head. Also, I love…

    FULL REVIEW FOR WINNING TIME: RISE OF LAKERS DYNASTY

    ”I don’t see why basketball can’t feel like that.”

    Winning Time is a show that I knew I would watch and have a lot of fun with being a big basketball fan and historian. I read the Jeff Pearlman book that this series was based on and it’s such a fascinating read because so much of this era in sports is why the NBA is the NBA. I’m such a historian…

  • Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness

    ★★★½

    ”things just got out of hand.”

    Doctor Strange 2 was a Marvel movie I was quite excited about, being this new movie that was going to usher in this new era of Marvel and what they were trying to do with the miniseries like WandaVision and Loki. This Phase of the MCU was all about throwing the playbook out the window, where now the rulebook has been thrown out the window with the introduction of the multiverse. Multiverse of Madness…

    REVIEW FOR OZARK

    "Most people just have a fundamentally flawed view of money."

    I wanted to do a big review of Ozark as the final half of the season comes out tomorrow and do an in-depth review about the show and why I love the show. Everything about the show has already been said, with the show being a Breaking Bad Jr. It also has a kind of pulpiness to it that I think people really gravitate towards too, the…

  • The Northman

    The Northman

    ★★★★½

    “remember for whom your last tear was shed,”

    The Northman is one of those movies that every film buff has been excited about because of the movies Robert Eggers makes. He’s already gone 2-2 and with a loaded cast, this felt like the arrival of him as a commodity. I was a bit concerned about the movie because of the reports of studio interference and also Eggers is working with a large budget and a large cast compared to The…

  • Everything Everywhere All at Once

    Everything Everywhere All at Once

    ★★★★½

    ”I wanted to say, in another life, I would be happy just doing laundry and taxes with you.”

    This is a movie that is becoming a word of mouth hit, they also handled the premiere in a way that is something I wish more movies did by just having it released in a few theatres first and then going with the full release. It’s going to be really exciting seeing this movie grow and have an audience with the casual…

  • The Player

    The Player

    ★★★★★

    "Ok, here it is. The Graduate, Part II"

    The Player is one of those movies that I don't think gets the due it should with how it's able to make fun of itself and the industry. It's one of those movies that really gets the industry, being smart about the industry but also a funny one. It's one of those movies I've been meaning to rewatch for quite some time now that its' the 30th anniversary of this movie.

    It's…

    REVIEW FOR SEVERANCE (APPLE+) SEASON 1

    "I make these statements freely."

    Severance is a show where from the first trailer I saw about the show, I just was immediately interested in the concept of it all and I just had this feeling that I was going to completely enjoy the ride it took me. Also, the cast is just loaded filled with actors who we've never seen before, actors who've been in our lives for a while, and actors who…
