Let me get something out of the way just in case you’re unfamiliar with my past reviews or have never seen me on CW44. I’m not a fan of musicals. I don’t like singing and […]

I’m going to be completely honest with you – I knew nothing about Stephen Hawking’s personal life whatsoever. Call me ignorant, but I just knew of Hawking as one of the world’s leading minds who […]

Movie Review: Whiplash

J.K. Simmons is what you would call an “oh that guy” type of actor. His sad dog face is very recognizable and he’s been in everything from Law and Order, Juno, the Farmers Insurance commercials […]

This new Apes franchise is its own story which continues with the highly anticipated sequel Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.
