Our favorite and controversial animated horse is back. “BoJack Horseman” is here with another sad, unpredictable and thoughtful season on  Netflix. I cannot recall the last time a series got me so stunned: all the unexpected turnarounds and new plots brought by this year’s season were probably th...

“Crazy Rich Asians” may not represent all Asians, but the film created opportunities and awareness for the Asian community as a whole. The amazing Jon M. Chu directs an outstanding film, based on Kevin Kwan’s best-selling novel. You may already know Chu, who directed “Step Up 2,” “G.I. Joe Re...

This year’s NBA 2K19 game doesn’t have clamant novelties and huge differences from the previous ones, but it feels nicer because the details added to last year’s version were mostly fixed.

Let me start by saying I am not a vegan. I adore animals and do as much as I can to help animals via fostering and adoption fundraising, but personally, my body and lifestyle both prevent me from cutting meat out of my diet. In 2015, my husband, who is a fit vegan with a healthy diet and active lifes...

It’s rare for a game to completely dominate every moment of my life. Whether I’m at work or doing homework, I am desperately trying to get home to jump back into the world of “Marvel’s Spider-Man.” Made by storied producers Insomniac Games, the legacy of Spider-Man games is fairly well known in t...

‘American Vandal’ gets even better in season 2

“American Vandal” is such a weird and wonderful mockumentary, that I never expected to see a season two. How could they even make another season? Would we get new characters or keep following the story of Dylan Maxwell and his infamous drawings. Imagine my surprise when I found that “American V...

“Happy Time Murders” had promise as a premise. Murder mystery, cop drama, puppets, raunchy humor, an R-rating – it looked to be a recipe for an interesting watch. And it was interesting. Some of the jokes did land, and I came out of the movie feeling like it wasn’t a waste of my time. ...

“Sometimes, dead is better.” This ominous and flat-out blatant warning comes from one of my favorite Stephen King characters, Jud Crandall. It sets the tone of the novel, “Pet Sematary,” right off the bat. It makes you sit back and consider the thought. Most of all, though, it brings ...

This has been a book I’ve been putting off reviewing since I started writing. Not because I don’t have anything to say, but because I care so much about this character. The Flash is my favorite superhero. He was the star of the first comic book I ever picked up nearly 10 years ago. The F...
