NERVE: A Film for Social Media Junkies

Emma Roberts and Dave Franco in Nerve

Alright this is the review that you and I have been waiting for! I do apologize in advance for the excess Franco spam, but after this review I will take a well needed break- that is until the next Franco film comes out. Due to the long wait, book material, built up hype, and last…

Some Favorite Lesser-Known 80’s Movies

Just One of the Guys Movie

I’m definitely not a child of the 80’s, but my mother is. She was always sharing different movies with me, and we would bond over them. I even went through a phase where I almost exclusively watched 80’s movies, and had crushes on actors from the same time period. I wanted to live in that…

What the Rest of Hollywood Can Learn from Marvel

Ever since the Marvel Cinematic Universe joined forces with Disney, it has become a powerhouse in modern film. Year after year, Marvel puts out blockbuster hits, and has rarely failed to impress its audiences. At this year’s Comic-Con, Marvel was a big winner in all departments. It has some exciting films coming out, and amazing…

California Adventures: the First Month-ish

I can’t believe I’ve been in California for over a month now! I tell you, it’s been crazy! I’ve cried, sweat, gotten lost, and walked more than I ever have in the past couple of years. If you had told me just a couple weeks ago ¬†that I would be here in California, starting to…

Effects of Entertainment While Growing Up Mixed

In light of all the turmoil going on in America, I have been very introspective. I haven’t started working yet, so perhaps I have a little too much time on my hands- which means that I’ve had a LOT of time to think. As I have mentioned before, I am mixed. Half Black. Half Mexican.…

The Bucket List: To Live a Life Worth Living (Updated 07/17/17)

So funny story, I was on Tumblr and even though I really don’t run a Franco fan blog, I post quite frequently Franco-y stuff. Yeah, I know I’m lame. One day a fellow fan messaged me a story about how through a charitable donation to Water Defense (a cause co-founded by Mark Ruffalo), she was…

Film Discovery: Y Tu Mama Tambien (2001)

Diego Luna, Gael Garcia Bernal in Y Tu Mama Tambien

Director: Alfonso Cuaron Starring: Gael Garcia Bernal, Diego Luna, Maribel Verdu If you don’t subscribe to Hulu, I suggest you do. There are times when I even preferred it to Netflix due to its premium selection of foreign and independent films. On a slow night, I found a gem with Y Tu Mama Tambien. During…

The Amber Rose Show: First Impressions Review

The Amber Rose Show

Due to the talk show format, I will deviate a little from the usual report card style of my other reviews.¬† I know it’s strange, but I kinda like Amber Rose. While her rise to fame has not been ideal, I admire her realness. She doesn’t hide who she is, and owns it. She isn’t…

MIKE AND DAVE NEED WEDDING DATES: Review

Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

What a week it’s been! I’ve finally been offered a job, but I am currently waiting for my background check results to go through. On Monday I am supposed to start orientation! The wait is killing me! To celebrate, and to get some well-needed distraction, I went to the movies again this week. I chose…

Film Discovery: COONSKIN (1975)

Coonskin

Happy belated 4th of July! This post is day after the fact, but I thought it was appropriate. While everyone else is probably looking at patriotic films, I chose the opposite. The film I chose shows America in a negative light, and metaphorically portrays America as a fickle, beautiful female. She seems nice on the…
