Based on the book by Fredrik Backman called “A Man Called Ove,” “A Man Called Otto” is a feel-good film directed by Marc Forster. Tom Hanks stars as Otto Anderson, a grumpy old man who meets his match: a cheery new neighbor that simply won’t let him be grouchy all the time.

“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.

Watching the Way of Water

I grew up watching the first “Avatar” movie. I remember my five-year-old self sitting in the IMAX theatre, anticipating the speakers to boom with sound and the screen to explode in hues of blue. My...

The website “Letterboxd” makes keeping track of every movie easy, which was needed while tackling 31 movies. Even though I didn’t like every movie I watched, I loved the experience and I’d do another month marathon in the future.

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.

“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” is a Marvel film directed by Ryan Coogler released on Nov. 11. The movie did a phenomenal job adding in themes of grief and retribution, however it was definitely not perfect. With its complex subject and turbulent pacing, it was a bit difficult to watch all the way through. However, the characters, costumes and special effects were to die for. Overall, the movie was not perfect, but I would definitely watch again.

“Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” tackles a difficult topic: how grief can change a person. After the death of Chadwick Boseman, the actor that played Black Panther in the first movie,  it was clear...

Present at the Austin Film Festival, “Glass Onion director Rian Johnson participated in a Q&A session with a moderator to answer audience questions after the film’s premiere. Set as a standalone sequel from its predecessor “Knives Out”, the movie revolves around Detective Benoit Blanc solving another murder mystery case.

With Overwatch being a hit worldwide, the sequel seems to be just as popular, with a max player count of about 25 million in just 10 days.  Although it has already been successful, veterans of the title are realizing just how similar the sequel is to the original game, almost making it just a reworked version of it. The gameplay isn’t very different, the campaign element that was supposed to be its selling point isn’t even out for players and the original system of getting customizable items has been scrapped and is instead a battle pass and item shop situation like many other free to play games.

Beabadoobee’s album “Beatopia” is the epitome of bringing a dreamworld to life through music. With her beautiful balance of different instruments and the unreal lyrics she creates and voice she garners, enjoying the album is easy.
