When discussing impactful, motivational, or thought-provoking movies, most people will imagine huge blockbusters that reeled in millions on their premiere day. What they don’t realize is that the best is waiting at home, right on their computer screen. The movie “Happy” is a 2011 documentary ...

“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 ...

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.
