2021 WILL BE THE YEAR THAT MAKES OR BREAKS HOLLYWOOD

Please make no mistake about it; 2020 has become a dreadful year for films.

ANTEBELLUM Review

“From the people behind Get Out and Us,” the words stamped on a film stifled with hype and such potential that would ensure audiences will confront that twist they will be talking about for years to come.

THE BEST VILLAINS OF THE MARVEL CINEMATIC UNIVERSE

Alfred Hitchcock once said, “The more successful the villain, the more successful the picture.” Anytime an antagonist comes in any book, film, or entertainment selection, they must grab one’s attention immediately as they are the individual the protagonist must overcome. Whether it is the cosmetics, motivations, or overall presentation, their appearance must be prominent and […]
