This show caught me by surprise!
I didn’t think I’d care about it since I’m not a Marvel universe fanatic, but Legion’s special effects and world-building are some of the best I’ve ever seen.
Legion is, without a doubt, a ton of fun. I’m impressed with every episode.

You may not be a fan of scary movies, but this one is different on a few levels.
Most scary movies are made purely for the sake of being scary, which is fine. But there are few, like Relic, that are theme-driven and don’t rely solely on cheap jump-scares.
If you’re at all interested in this genre, you won’t be disappointed.

This brand new series premiered its first couple episodes June 4, with new episodes releasing on Fridays.
Hard to give this a solid review or recommendation yet, as only 4 episodes are out, but I am fairly intrigued so far.

This new series from Apple TV+ just finished airing its final episode from season 1.
I'm liking the story, the stakes, and the adventure.
To be honest, I'm not a huge fan of the two kids' acting, and the writing isn't top tier, but it is quite an entertaining thriller. Justin Theroux's performance is as good as ever.
I do think it's worth you giving it a shot. Check out the trailer by clicking on the poster if you think you might be interested.

A movie I’ve seen many times, but had to show my sister-in-law when I found out she hadn’t seen it.
The Prestige is in my top 3 favorite movies ever. Give it a watch if you haven’t already—or a rewatch if you have!

I couldn’t get over how amazing the writing and acting were in this.
I don’t know how else to put it other than saying what a good movie! It's one I can see myself rewatching, even if it's just to take notes on Aaron Sorkin's writing skills.

I've been asked how this sequel compared to its predecessor. I consider it my compliment to this movie that I really can’t say which was better.
We see some new things in Part 2 that I thoroughly enjoyed, a lot of which are in the opening scene.
It’s also cool to see director John Krasinski be a part of keeping the dying industry of theaters alive. Even before COVID, theaters have been on thin ice that is melting quickly. I appreciate all that he, and movie-goers, are doing to keep theatrical releases a part of our lives for at least awhile longer.
Here’s to a brighter, theater-thriving future. 🥂
