I Am Obsessed With Buying Forky Merchandise

The day was June 1, 2019. I was in Salt Lake City with my theater group during performance week. My good friend Ben and me walked passed the Disney Store during our lunch break. We had already eaten, so we had some time to kill. I said to Ben, "We will find us a friend … Continue reading I Am Obsessed With Buying Forky Merchandise


Booksmart – Quick Thoughts

Booksmart might not reinvent the wheel when it comes to this kind of teen comedy, but I'll be damned if it doesn't refine that wheel until it's as smooth as a baby's bottom.

But LAIKA has never done well financially. When they announced The Missing Link, an adventure movie with the studios first all-star cast, I thought … Continue reading The Missing Link – Quick Thoughts

Shazam! – Quick Thoughts

Whoopsies! Bad opinion alert! Avert your eyes!¬†Shazam! is my favorite superhero movie of the year so far. Even though it is first and foremost a comedy, (and it sure delivers on that front) Shazam! has a really effective emotional center to it. The depiction of the foster family feels genuine and it grounds the movie … Continue reading Shazam! – Quick Thoughts
