Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them (2016)

RATED PG-13 I found it difficult to write this review because I kept wanting to just say “stop reading this review and just go see the movie. Just go.” I loved Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. I hadn’t been able to get too excited over the trailers. I figured I’d enjoy it, and […]

This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab

“This Savage Song” by Victoria Schwab

Goodreads bills Victoria Schwab’s This Savage Song as a “dark urban fantasy,” but it’s only dark and urban until the monsters come into play. This isn’t a run-of-the-mill YA paranormal. No vampires, werewolves, or zombies here. These monsters are dark and deserving of the name. The Corsai and Malchai are born of evil acts, people’s sins […]

Ghostbusters2016_review

Ghostbusters: Answer the Call (2016)

  RATED PG-13 Do you like science fiction or fantasy? Do you like comedy? Do you want to see a movie where women build each other up and make ZERO comments about how they look and are just busy figuring stuff out and being there for each other? Then go see the new Ghostbusters. Having seen […]

Alive_Sigler_review

Alive (Generations Trilogy #1) By Scott Sigler

It’s hard to talk about Alive by Scott Sigler without spoiling it. There is even a note at the end of the book, exhorting readers not to mention spoilers online. So when my review turns really vague, that’s why. The story opens with the main character waking up in a coffin. She believes it’s her twelfth birthday […]

Independence_Day2_review

Independence Day Resurgence (2016)

RATED PG-13 Twenty years have passed since the first Independence Day movie crashed into theaters. When you watch the original movie, it ages pretty well. You don’t realize how long ago this movie actually came out (1996)—until you see the phones and computers they are using. Yikes. Independence Day: Resurgence is a blast for sci-fi […]

Dawn_Justice_review

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016)

RATED PG-13 Seeing Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice was a unique experience for me. I have fairly mean things to say about Man of Steel (2013), and I have meaner things to say about Zack Snyder as a director. (Not that I’m opinionated or anything…) That said, even as a not-fan of Superman and an […]

Finding_Dory_review

Finding Dory (2016)

RATED PG Thirteen years ago, Disney Pixar introduced us to a little clown fish looking for his son. Along for the ride was a forgetful blue tang fish who taught us all to “just keep swimming”. When it was announced that there would be a sequel to Finding Nemo over a decade after the original movie […]

Thru_Looking_Glass_review

Alice Through the Looking Glass (2016)

RATED PG This movie…was a disappointment. Alice Through the Looking Glass takes place three years after Alice in Wonderland ends and we find Alice captain of her late father’s ship, the Wonder. And a quite capable captain at that. She returns to England to find that her family’s world is unraveling and in a sticky situation. […]

Feed by Mira Grant - Book Review

Feed (Newsflesh series #1) by Mira Grant

Feed (published in 2010) by Mira Grant is a dystopian political zombie thriller set against the backdrop of a national political campaign. The story is told through blog posts and journal entries written by “newsie” Georgia Mason and her brother, an adventure-seeking “Irwin” reporter, Shaun Mason.   I love a good zombie story. I’m not […]

The Jungle Book Movie Poster

The Jungle Book (2016)

RATED PG Two of our reviewers, September and Rachael, got together earlier this week to see Disney’s new, live action The Jungle Book together. Therefore, this is dual review from two perspectives! —Cat   Rachael: Having been raised on Disney movies, I had a wave of excitement—and a little bit of doubt—when I saw another Jungle Book […]
