I think we can all recall a time we had to read and watch Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” in AP Lit, senior year of high school. Arguably, this was one of many people’s favorites. The long monologues, the confusing language and format Shakespeare used are hard to forget. Sometimes, it truly felt like the beauty of his writing...

When a movie is based on real events, one of the biggest challenges is to tell an exciting and suspenseful story, even though the audience already knows the ending. This is a particular problem in period pieces, where some historical knowledge can quickly turn into a movie spoiler. But director Joe Wright is a...

Upon viewing a live premiere of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Halloween night, a question was brought to my mind. Despite its powerful cult following and enjoyable performance, why is it specifically Halloween when most people tend to watch it? At first sight, there really is nothing horrific about it (unless you...

When the trailer for “IT” got published, it was watched more than 190 million within the first 24 hours. This incredible number broke all records by far and predicted a huge success for the movie.

Many movies have been made about World War II, one of the most well-known being “Saving Private Ryan.” Just when we thought there couldn’t be a tale more intense and realistic, Christopher Nolan introduced “Dunkirk.” In 1940, World War II is in full swing, and German troops are closing in on the Allies.

Henry (Jaeden Lieberher) is a boy genius. Not only does he take care of the...

“Dark Universe” is what Universal Studios calls its attempt to establish a new movie series full of classic monsters. After watching Disney make billions with its Marvel and Star Wars franchises, the studio now wants its own piece of the pie. The opening to its new series, “The Mummy,” is the studio’s attempt at getting...

Here it is – the eighth movie of Universal’s automotive carnage franchise, and the first to see the original crew moving on after Paul Walker’s tragic death. It was the actor’s chemistry with Vin Diesel that got the series this far, which makes it crucial to see if the fans are still committed (and they are). Before...

“The Disaster Artist” When a small movie called “The Room” hit two theaters in the Los Angeles area in 2003, no one knew what to do with the film or Tommy Wiseau, its mysterious director. Advertised as a drama, the movie seemed to ignore every fundamental rule of filmmaking. It turned into a hilarious reel of unrelated,...

The newest “Power Rangers” movie is among the first to introduce an openly LGBT+ superhero. Although both Marvel and D.C have superheroes who have been openly gay and bisexual, none of them have made it to the big screen. The superheroes who are part of the LGBT community in the comics have been depicted as cis-gendered...
