My 2 Cents on RWBY: Volume 8, Chapter 2, “Refuge”

(SPOILER ALERT: This is a full breakdown review for “Refuge”) What’s new, readers? It’s fascinating to witness Hollywood’s slowly increasing reliance on streaming services. Disney is considering dropping the live-action reboots Cruella, Pinocchio, and Peter Pan and Wendy on Disney Plus, which would fall in line with their decision to release Pixar’s Soul on Christmas. On the superhero side of … Continue reading My 2 Cents on RWBY: Volume 8, Chapter 2, “Refuge”

My 2 Cents on RWBY: Volume 8, Chapter 1, “Divide”

(SPOILER ALERT—This is a full breakdown review for “Divide”)What’s new, readers? I’m slightly disappointed Disney Plus isn’t dropping WandaVision in 2020 like we expected, although January 15isn’t that far away. Out of all the upcoming Disney Plus Marvel shows, this is the one I’m anticipating the most. Wanda Maximoff/Scarlet Witch is such a powerful figure in the comics … Continue reading My 2 Cents on RWBY: Volume 8, Chapter 1, “Divide”

My 2 Cents on Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

What’s new, readers? As of the time that I’m posting this, Joe Biden continues to inch ahead in battleground states, but the votes aren’t finished being tallied yet. Meanwhile, Donald Trump is trying to halt the vote-counting with a desperate onslaught of litigation and apparently has no plans to concede defeat. Seriously, I can’t wait … Continue reading My 2 Cents on Borat Subsequent Moviefilm

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 The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

What’s new, readers? Today is the first day of June, which means summer is on the horizon—and you know what, I couldn’t care less. Things have been so exasperating lately, not just because of the dimwits out there who see fit to dismiss the necessity of face masks, but also because of the police-inflicted murder … Continue reading My 2 Cents on The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes

My 2 Cents on The Kingdom of Back

When you hear the name Mozart, you will most likely think of Wolfgang Amadeus, the child prodigy who made unimaginably vast contributions to classical music—but there wasn’t just one musically proficient Mozart. With her young adult novel fusion between historical fiction and fantasy, The Kingdom of Back, Marie Lu (Legend, Warcross) pulls us into a decade-long … Continue reading My 2 Cents on The Kingdom of Back

My 2 Cents on All Our Wrong Todays

I’ve always been partial to time-travel tales—Back to the Future, Stephen King’s 11/22/63, Audrey Niffenegger’s The Time Traveler’s Wife, NBC’s Timeless, et cetera. And I can add another one to the list: All Our Wrong Todays, the 2017 debut novel by screenwriter Elan Mastai (The F Word). It takes place in an alternate timeline where … Continue reading My 2 Cents on All Our Wrong Todays
