“Solo: A Star Wars Story” recently came out on May 25. Since then, it has received major hate, mainly because of Han Solo not being portrayed by Harrison Ford, but instead by Alden Ehrenreich. In my opinion, however, this was an amazing Star Wars movie and I don’t understand why people aren’t ...

Although I would never consider myself an extremely invested Wes Anderson fan, I do love a lot of his movies, and for me, it’s safe to say that “Isle of Dogs” did not disappoint. One of the best aspects of it for me was the music, composed by Academy Award-winning artist Alexandre Desplat, who a...

That is what Fandom Rant Radio began as--an idea, a seed planted in the minds of Horizon Honors alums Jack and Ryan Kenz...

It is rare for me to find a sequel of decent quality. It doesn’t help when there are movies using older content and twisting it in a way it was not meant to be twisted, and, although there’s no doubt about it that there have been well-made movies that have been produced recently, it seems as though ma...

Black Panther (Chadwick Boseman), king of his city, king of his country, king of his homeland. “Black Panther” is one of the most hyped-up movies in all of 2018. By my standards, Black Panther lived up to its reputation, and the box office reflects this. For its first week in theaters, BP has made o...

Book to movie adaptations. The movies where people are bound to comment that movie was not as good as the book or that the character’s hair is different. I usually look at the movie adaptation not as the same story as the book, but as a standalone portrayal of a similar, but different story; still, I c...
