Proxima | Movie Review

Alice Winocour’s Proxima is a stunning, breathtaking film. Eva Green is superb as Sarah, a female astronaut selected to spend a year on the International Space Station (ISS). She’s also a mother, though, and her dedication to her daughter Stella (Zélie Boulant) causes her to question whether she should make the journey. The film also… Continue reading Proxima | Movie Review

A Night in Halloween House by Elyse Willems | Book Review

I absolutely adore Elyse Willems (she has no idea who I am, so this review isn't biased) and when I discovered that she wrote a children's Halloween book, I had to check it out. I was a scaredy-cat as a kid, so I was hoping that this novel would thrust me into the shoes of… Continue reading A Night in Halloween House by Elyse Willems | Book Review

The Queen’s Gambit | TV Review

WOW. I knew the general premise of The Queen’s Gambit before diving in, but I was completely blown away by how amazing every little aspect was. The story follows a woman named Beth Harmon (Anya Taylor-Joy) who quickly becomes one of the best chess players in the world. The kicker is, at the tender age… Continue reading The Queen’s Gambit | TV Review

Borat Subsequent Moviefilm | Movie Review

After watching the original film earlier today, I felt compelled to watch Borat Subsequent Moviefilm. This sequel is still hilarious, but adds a political edge and social commentary about the current events happening as we speak. I appreciated that the story incorporated some heart this time around, courtesy of Borat’s relationship with his daughter (Maria… Continue reading Borat Subsequent Moviefilm | Movie Review

The novel centers on a woman named Maggie, who as a child lived in a historic home called Baneberry Hall. After living there for twenty days, her… Continue reading Home Before Dark by Riley Sager|Book Review

The Stand by Stephen King | Book Review

I was extremely hesitant to start Stephen King's epic novel due to its 1,400+ page count and small font. When COVID-19 hit though, I decided to be masochistic and read it. I'm glad I did, even if it took me two months to finish it. The story sees the U.S. become ravaged by a gruesome… Continue reading The Stand by Stephen King | Book Review

Jade Green by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor | Book Review

She is told not to bring anything green into the home, but she can't resist taking a photo of her mother in a… Continue reading Jade Green by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor | Book Review

Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng| Book Review

The Hulu adaptation of Little Fires Everywhere is coming out soon, and I had heard pretty much universal praise for this novel, so I decided to finally give this a read. Fortunately it lived up to the hype. The story is set in 1997 and focuses primarily on two families: the affluent Richardsons and the eclectic… Continue reading Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng| Book Review
