Movie Review: Victor Frankenstein

Ever since I was a small child, I have always loved (or been obsessed with) the classic monster stories. Frankenstein, Dracula, you name it and I probably read it in elementary school. Yeah, picture my dorky tiny self reading Bram Stoker’s Dracula because it happened on several occasions. When I first saw the previews for Victor […]

The Good Dinosuar Review Feature

Movie Review: The Good Dinosaur

The Good Dinosaur is classically Pixar in many ways, but it falls a little flat after their stellar break-out, Inside Out.

Brooklyn Movie Review Feature

Movie Review: Brooklyn

You don’t really expect much going in, but about halfway through you realize that you are watching an incredibly well thought out and executed film. Unlike many novel to screen adaptations Brooklyn doesn’t feel like it is getting bogged down by the original text […]

While I am fully aware that today is Saturday, this is actually a Five Fandom Friday post. I am so excited to share my favorite seasonal foods.

My All American Review Feature

Movie Review: My All American

As a proud longhorn I have to tell you that I am ashamed at how little I knew about Freddie Steinmark prior to screening this film. After watching the film and reading about Freddie’s life, I feel comfortable saying that My All American is a fitting tribute to a truly inspirational individual. What Freddie Steinmark […]
