“Beau is Afraid” is the third feature film from horror director Ari Aster, known for nail-biting films like Hereditary and Midsommar. Hhowever, unlike his previous horror-oriented films, Beau is Afraid is an odd mix between surrealist nightmare and shockingly funny comedy. With quite the mixed reception, a three hour runtime, and its status as a box-office bomb with reports of people walking out the theater, I was cautiously optimistic but had no idea what kind of wild ride I was getting myself into.

The second season of the popular show called “Ginny and Georgia” was just recently released on Jan. 5, 2023. It became the number one tv show on Netflix for a few weeks and remains the current number on TV shows in the United States. I would recommend this show to anyone in highschool or older who enjoys drama shows that keep you on the edge of your seat.

“Avatar: The Way of Water” was released on Dec. 16 2022. Directed by James Cameron, the “Avatar” sequel features an updated cast. The production and animation was fantastic, however the three and a half hour length made it a bit difficult to watch fully through in the movie theatre. Considering its unoriginal plot, unnecessary length, and fantastic production, I’d rate this film a 6 out of 10. (Movie stills courtesy of 20th Century Studios)

The website “Letterboxd” makes keeping track of every movie easy, which was needed while tackling 31 movies.

“The Family” is the seventh studio album by rap group BROCKHAMPTON. With the official announcement in January 2022 that the band would be splitting up indefinitely, fans were anxious to hear what the promised final album would be. While this is under the band’s name, it is an almost entirely solo album for member Kevin Abstract, as he reflects on how the band ended. (Album cover courtesy of RCA Records)
