My 2 Cents on Interstellar

What’s new, readers? Travis Scott recently teased “The Plan,” his theme song for Christopher Nolan’s Tenet. Obviously Nolan is a filmmaking genius, but it helps that he’s a marketing wizard too—casting Harry Styles in Dunkirk to draw in One Direction fans, dropping the Tenet trailer on Fortnite to catch the attention of gamers, and now his collaboration with Scott. The … Continue reading My 2 Cents on Interstellar

My 2 Cents on Disney’s Artemis Fowl

What’s new, readers? I just want to give a huge shout-out to the Gen Z users of TikTok and the K-pop fans who bought up all those seats at Trump's Tulsa rally yesterday. This is fantastic—the young people banding together to make their political voices heard, bring about change, and stand against racism. And it's … Continue reading My 2 Cents on Disney’s Artemis Fowl

My 2 Cents on Pixar’s Onward

What’s new, readers? I hope you’re heeding social distancing rules, finding ways to keep yourself from going stir-crazy during COVID-19, and praying our egomaniacal and “total authority”-obsessed president doesn’t tear the United States apart. Personally, I’m occupying myself with writing, reading, watching the musical parodies of Chris Mann, and being repeatedly amused by the public’s … Continue reading My 2 Cents on Pixar’s Onward

My 2 Cents on How to Train Your Dragon

Many things have happened these first few months of the year 2020—and by “things,” I mean this blasted COVID-19 pandemic. We’re dealing with an extremely infectious virus that the White House predicts will kill 240,000 people, blockheads who are partying on the beach and completely disregarding the importance of personal space, the hoarding of toilet … Continue reading My 2 Cents on How to Train Your Dragon

Imagine a world where expert thieves known as extractors are hired by companies to commit acts of corporate espionage by executing heists in a target's dream. Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio, Titanic, Once Upon a Time in Hollywood) is one such extractor, sedating his target, breaking into their dream, and stealing the secrets with which their … Continue reading My 2 Cents on Inception

My 2 Cents on Spider-Man: Far From Home

(SPOILER ALERT: Do not read this review if you haven't watched Avengers: Endgame yet, because the ending connects directly to this movie. However, if you waited this long to see Endgame, the Internet probably spoiled it for you already.) Allow me to digress for a moment and say this—For everyone who religiously followed the Marvel Cinematic Universe for … Continue reading My 2 Cents on Spider-Man: Far From Home

My 2 Cents on Pokémon: Detective Pikachu

Pokémon: Detective Pikachu, while slow at times, is a boisterous, Pokémon-packed ride intertwined with a surprisingly enthralling mystery—and this is very likely the first quality entry in the videogame movie genre. Detective Pikachu, directed by Rob Letterman (Shark Tale, Goosebumps), is based on the 2016 3DS game of the same name, and it is the … Continue reading My 2 Cents on Pokémon: Detective Pikachu
