For reference, Snyder stepped down from directorial duties following a family tragedy,Continue reading “A Dose of Justice (League)”

I’ve Got Plans

Hours at my job vary depending on a multitude of circumstances. Some days I can (allegedly) trek home after 9 hours, which is the standard length of a shift for a salaried executive at my workplace. Though, to be honest, I don’t think I’ve worked a 9 hour shift since I started, and the otherContinue reading “I’ve Got Plans”

Top 10 Favorite Films of 2019

My Week in Movies

So my internet is terrible and I had to write all of this on my phone, please excuse any typos. But this week I managed to get to the theater four times, so I thought I’d post some mini reviews… Avengers: Endgame (Reissue): The sequel to last year’s massive Marvel hit Infinity War and theContinue reading “My Week in Movies”

Take a Chance

Way back in 2008, I was sixteen years old and on vacation with my family in Massachusetts. My dad and I got into an argument over movies – he had already seen Iron Man, and insisted it was better than the film I had twice seen already, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. However, neitherContinue reading “Take a Chance”
