    I genuinely don't get why Netflix keeps churning out YA romcoms when their action genre portfolio is so much more respectable, and a better representative of what they can do. Sure it still pales in comparison to other established studios, and there's a level of predictability that is consistent in each and every one of them, but my goodness they hit so much more often with action than they do miss.

    Kate is a sleeper in a year full of…

    There is just something about the suppression of feelings in romance that takes it to a whole other level. When you’re completely certain of your emotions, but you’re afraid of letting it out because the reciprocity may not be there. Little by little, it builds up.

    Soul is the first movie in such a long time that has truly transported me into some kind of a magical place that I didn't want to get out of. You can just tell from the very beginning that it's made with a lot of heart, and passion, and joy, and an intense desire to…

    One Night in Miami...

    ★★★★½

    While it mostly plays out as one big giant argument and scattered discussions within the four characters, One Night in Miami is still as masterful and gripping as it feels like it should be.

    It was originally a stage play and it's obvious with the way the movie flows, but thanks to an extremely talented cast (I'm looking at you, Leslie Odom Jr.) the implications that the dialogue brings are not lost. It's dangerous when a movie relies on its…
