Marvel Cinematic Universe – Ranked

I’m aware of what Marvel movies are. What I mean by that is I know they’re not the most prestigious form of filmmaking that exists.

Do People Actually Even Have Hobbies Anymore? – My Take

What do people do? That's a real question because I honestly have no idea.

“You’re Not Actually Having Fun, You’re Just Drunk” As I’ve grown a little older, I have started to realize that everything in society that’s supposed to be fun actually sucks.

Revisiting Joker: A Deep Dive Into 2019’s Most Controversial Film And The Discourse That Has Surrounded It

I wasn’t sure if I wanted to write this. Truthfully, the conversation surrounding Todd Phillips’ Joker had become exhausting about one week after it was released in theaters back in October.

The 2020 Academy Award Nominations – My Reaction

Let’s get the most important thing out of the way first, which is me. I predicted 15 categories on Friday and got 62 correct nominees out of a total 79.

Respect The Day Drink – My Take

Day Drinking: Two of the most exciting, yet dangerous, words in the English language. #RespectTheDayDrink I am a defender of, and advocate for, day drinking.

Dating Apps Suck and Are Probably Doing Weird Shit To Our Brains – My Take

I’ve deleted and redownloaded Tinder more times than I’d like to admit. I know that particular experience is not unique to me.

12 Reasons Disney’s Star Wars Trilogy Failed

I love Star Wars. But I do believe there is a strong case to be made that this new trilogy was a failure.
