The last episode of FX true crime series Under The Banner of Heaven just arrived on Hulu this past Thursday, and what a nerve wracking ride it has been over the past month.  Created by Academy Award-winner filmmaker, Dustin Lance Black, and based on a homonymous nonfiction book written by Jon Krakauer, Under The Banner […]



A warm cup of tea on a snowy day. The fuzzy feelings of first love. A kiss under pouring rain. Life always has its way when it comes to unexpected moments of happiness. And although I’m not the kind of person who enjoys surprises very much, it never ceases to amaze me when one of […]

Marvel Studios WandaVision aired its electrifying series finale this weekend, but viewers everywhere are hardly free from its spells. Breathing new life into the Marvel Cinematic Universe one episode at a time, WandaVision was an epic tale of love and grief, pain and eventual healing, as Wanda refuses to experience a world without those she […]


Review | God’s Own Country

God’s Own Country, written and directed by British filmmaker Francis Lee, is gay cinema at its finest.

Adapted from a […]

From the electrifying opening credits to its tragic conclusion, Shaka King’s new directorial masterpiece hit me like a ton of bricks. Debuting on the heels of the first anniversary of the brutal assassination of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna […]

Review | Finding ‘Ohana

Finding ‘Ohana debuted on Netflix this weekend, and it’s already one of my favorite movies this year. Directed by Jude Weng, a Taiwan-born American director who made a name for herself behind the camera on shows like Black-ish and Fresh off the Boat, Finding ‘Ohana is a fast paced, family friendly adventure about uncovering pirate […]
