Recently, there's been a lot of debate everywhere about the movie Cuties, so I had to see for myself if it was as bad as people were portraying it and it was pretty horrible. The French movie is flashy, inappropriate and not for kids whatsoever. The basis of the movie is that the main character Amy is a...

Every time I would scroll on Snapchat, I would always see the ad for Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Candace Against the Universe. So, I finally decided to watch it and it was amazing.

Netflix's new documentary,  The Social Dilemma, had an immense opportunity to be revolutionary; especially today.

Disney's series of live-action remakes of their classic movies have always been pretty hit or miss, mostly because they always have their own spin on the original story. The most recent in this remake series is Mulan (2020), which was originally supposed to hit theatres March 27 earlier this year but...

After seeing ads for it every time I opened TikTok, I finally decided to watch Amazon Prime's Chemical Hearts.

When you're stuck at home, what better thing to do than to await for things to drop on Netflix. I finished Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt last fall, and missed it as soon as I finished. It was a happy show that was short enough to watch during a break but interesting enough to binge without getting bored. W...

May 18, 2020

Directed by Alice Wu, The Half of It had potential to be Netflix's new rom-com hit of the season. The film covers several serious subjects, and after seeing that the genre of the film was labeled as a "coming-of-age comedy," I was a bit perplexed because the film did not seem to fall under that category...

I know I cannot be the only one running out of things to watch while in quarantine; I can spend 10 minutes searching for something good to watch.

Being in quarantine has brought me to be willing to watch almost any movie. As a joke, I watched Trolls World Tour, and it surpassed my expectations of enjoyment.
