‘Wonder Woman 1984’ is an overstuffed, disjointed escapist playground

This review contains a paragraph with minor spoilers. “Barbara, what did you do?” “Wonder Woman 1984” is the problem child of the DC Extended Universe. It seems to like to cause problems by being loud, throwing things in the air hoping something will stick and running around solely for the sake of causing a commotion. It has its bright spots of controlled chaos, but sometimes the child’s problems overwrite those

5 underrated movies you may have missed from 2020

With 2020 drawing to a close, I can say it has certainly not been a great time to be a movie fan. Theaters are on death’s door, studios do not seem intent on helping them and even monopoly-wannabe Disney is shifting its business strategies toward streaming. The whole situation is very, very bitter. Still, not everything is bleak. Even without theaters, we got some diamonds in the rough. Perhaps the

‘The Crown’ season 4 is its most dazzling yet

It is a bit daunting to create a show about Britain’s most powerful family, but creator Peter Morgan has no qualms about it. His Netflix series “The Crown,” a six-season project that changes out its casts every two seasons, explores the drama behind the Windsors while chronicling the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Season four hit the streaming service on Sunday, finishing its final foray with the middle-age cast. Admittedly,

Broaden your film horizons with these extraordinary foreign-language films

American media has a superiority complex, and honestly, it’s unfounded. Yes, there have been phenomenal works to come out of Hollywood, but the assumption that Hollywood is the sole source of these works is elitist and deprives us of the perspectives offered in foreign productions. Everyone should be watching foreign-language films, and below are some of my favorites to broaden your movie horizons. “Parasite” (2019) Let’s get the most obvious

‘The Queen’s Gambit’ is a flawed, but intriguing look at the 1960s chess world from a woman’s perspective

Director Scott Frank‘s “The Queen’s Gambit,” which follows fictional Elizabeth “Beth” Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy) throughout the ’50s and ’60s as she works her way up from an orphanage to the top of the chess world, is a bit of a sensation right now. It secured the number one spot on Netflix’s Top 10 List and has amassed an impressive 100 percent critical rating on Rotten Tomatoes. You can’t count the

Ariana Grande’s ‘Positions’ is fun but forgettable

Her third album in three years, Ariana Grande’s “Positions” provides a sweet but sinful pop-R&B soundtrack, yet ultimately fails to reach its full potential as Grande seems at her most unenthused and uninspired. The sixth studio album in Grande’s discography, “Positions” focuses less on dealing with the aftermath of life’s trauma, like “Sweetener” and “thank u, next,” and more about finding peace, finding new love and learning how to trust
