Pow! Bang! Machine-gun noise? Zack Snyder’s Justice League was released this past Thursday and with plenty of villainy afoot, the six members of what would become known as the Justice League had plenty of enemies to get their passive-aggressiveness out. Warning: spoilers ahead. The plot of Justice L...

Yes, it's true that for a few days in 1692 the Pilgrims and Wampanoag Indians came together in Plymouth, MA to eat a big feast. But one of the harshest realities of American history is that this was only one day out of many decades when settlers and natives were able to interact peacefully. For me, a...

As far as I’m concerned, you can’t really go wrong by spending a snowy day outside and heading up a mountain in a chairlift. However, in my opinion, heading down on two skis is far more enjoyable than a snowboard. Skiing is far easier to pick up for beginners because learning to balance on a s...

An old story comes alive yet again in Suburbicon. Sure, the premise is quite cliche: a bored husband has his wife killed so that he can collect the life insurance money and run off with his lover to Aruba.  But in Suburbicon, this concept is done extremely well; every scene is interesting and hilario...

Initially I couldn’t help but miss the old Taylor who was riding shotgun with her hair undone, who I knew like the back of my hand and loved. But she’s dead now, and after accepting that I was able to enjoy Taylor Swift’s newest album Reputation immensely. On Friday, November 10, 2017 Taylor Swift dr...

They don’t call it the “most wonderful time of the year” for nothing. most people have happy memories associated with Christmas, so why not enjoy what it has to offer a little earlier? From decorating in November to playing Christmas music in August, I see no harm in celebrating as far in adva...
