'Jungle Cruise' Is An Entertaining Ride Along The Amazon River - Review

So, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Emily Blunt meet each other in a bar alongside the Amazon River… No, this is not the beginning of some corny joke (of which Jungle Cruise has many, thanks to Johnson’s Frank firing off ‘dad’ jokes like they’re going out of style), this is quite literally a plot point in Disney’s latest adventure film, Jungle Cruise. Dr. Lily Houghton (Blunt) is on a mission to find the Tears of the Moon, a tree now that grows petals capable of curing any illness or injury...

REVIEW – Marvel Comics ‘Thor & Loki: Double TRouble’ #4

What can possibly go wrong with a pair of Thors and a Loki trying to locate a mysterious orb stolen right from Odin’s vaults?

Now, trying to get this other Loki to part with the orb so that Thor and Loki number one can get home? Well, that’s certainly much easier said than done.

‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League’ Better Late Than Never – Review

“They said the Age of Heroes would never come again.” Kudos to Snyder and his team for pulling off something that was indeed epic in scale and mythos, which showcases the characters, heroes and villains alike, in all of their complexities in the way Snyder wanted them to be seen. Full of heart, but not without some flaws, and better late than never, Zack Snyder’s Justice League is the film audiences deserved to see in theatres almost four long years ago.

Andra Day Shines In The Uneven ‘The United States vs. Billie Holiday’ - Review

Billie Holiday was more than a jazz icon. Holiday was a beacon to many, especially amongst Black Americans. The NAACP called her “the voice of our people.” In The United States vs. Billie Holiday, director Lee Daniels and screenwriter Suzan-Lori Parks attempt to approach telling the story of the famed singer through a more intimate lens, focusing on the FBN’s (Federal Bureau of Narcotics) pursuit of her, and the highs and lows of her personal life and career.
