I grew up watching the original Super Friends cartoons, and all I really remember about him is that he could breathe under water and talk to fish with his mind. And his outfit was kind of dorky. That’s about it. Not…

Did George Bailey Really Have a Wonderful Life?

It’s a Wonderful Life is one of those iconic holiday movies that almost demands a rewatch every December. I first saw the film when I was in college, and I actually wrote an essay about it for my Abnormal Psychology class. This isn’t that piece—that was written more years ago than I care to remember,…

Dc comics vs rotten tomatoes: ‘suicide squad’ movie review

DC Comics vs Rotten Tomatoes: ‘Suicide Squad’ Movie Review

The best things hands down about the film are its characters and its style. This movie has been compared to Guardians of the Galaxy for its  comedy and ensemble cast and Deadpool for its hardcore violence and vulgarity, yet light tone.
