Amazon Prime’s “Barb & Star Go to Vista Del Mar” is a Wonderful, Chaotic Experience, Movie Review

It’s hard to believe that Bridesmaids, one of the funniest movies ever made in my opinion, is 10 years old. I watched the film with my parents around five or six years ago, around the time I first watched SNL and instantly recognized Kristen Wiig from it and remembered I loved everything about it.

Movie Review: “Judas and the Black Messiah,” a Captivating Look at “the Other Side” of American History

My knowledge of the Black Panther Party has always been fairly limited—it wasn’t exactly a part of my high school history curriculum. So when I took a class on counterculture during my time at UWB, I jumped at the chance to read more about them. The Huey P. Newton Reader was my first introduction to the real BPP: it was like opening my eyes to a part of history that had been forgotten or perhaps covered up.… Read More Movie Review: “Judas and the Black Messiah,” a Captivating Look at “the Other Side” of American History

The 10 Best Shows I Watched Since the Pandemic Hit, Ranked

I found several favorite shows of mine from this, and I have to say I love everything about all of these shows.… Read More The 10 Best Shows I Watched Since the Pandemic Hit, Ranked
