Dick Johnson is Dead Review

‘Dick Johnson is Dead’ Review: A Masterful Collision of Family, Love, and Loss

Dick Johnson is Dead needs to be at the top of your Netflix watchlist. It will make you laugh, cry, and everything in between.
Bad Hair Movie Review

Review: Hulu’s ‘Bad Hair’ Takes “Beauty is Pain” to a New Level

Rather than a stereotypical horror film, Bad Hair is an entertaining manifestation of the unrealistic and unfair beauty standards Black women are expected to uphold.
Mulan Movie Review

Disney’s ‘Mulan’ Review: Loyal, Brave, & True?

Mulan is the female empowerment film that I wanted but didn’t quite get. There are well-executed parts to film—the acting, costumes, scenery, film score, and (most of) the script—that are worth watching. But, overall, Mulan is best enjoyed after its December streaming date.

An earnest and eerily timely sci-fi tale that does what it can with what it has, LX 2048 refreshes the familiar while provoking thought with relatively limited resources. Despite a lingering sense of underdevelopment, LX 2048 shows ambition and entertains, nonetheless.
All Together Now Netflix

‘All Together Now’: Netflix Original Movie Review

All Together Now makes a powerful impact in its representation of positive teen relationships, but its attempt to represent more trauma and diversity than the story can handle deters it from reaching its apparent goal of serving as the ultimate "real" teen flick of 2020.

Netflix’s ‘The Babysitter: Killer Queen’ Review

Do I have an irrational and mild fear of lakes, summer camps, and the name Jason? Arguably. Do I love Friday the 13th-themed movies,...
