  • Movie Review: Tenet

    The movies are back! And who better to bring it back than Christopher Nolan. But how does one describe a movie like Tenet? It’s like Christopher Nolan made a Bond movie, except with a more diverse cast. It’s like Inception met Interstellar at a really loud party hosted by The Dark Knight Rises. It’s worth […]

  • Movie Review: Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    What does one say about a series like Star Wars that you haven’t already heard? It’s such a pop-culture phenomenon that you’d be hard pressed to avoid it in any English-speaking country.

    What Happens in Vegas: Look, I know this is the kind of movie you’re supposed to hate if you’re any sort of movie buff, but I didn’t totally hate this. The plot: Kutcher and Diaz meet in Vegas, get hitched, win $3 million, are forced to wait 6 months for a divorce to split the […]
