Blinded by the Light

I saw this film a few nights ago with Rory. We originally wanted to go see Detective Pikachu, but we ended up going to see Blinded by the Light instead.This was a film I was interested in, and Rory thought it looked good, too. With a ’90s feel to the cinema, we meandered through theContinue reading “Blinded by the Light”

The Lion King 2019

I saw the new version of The Lion King with a friend. She and I, as well as a woman with her two kids, were the only ones in the theater. I loved the beautiful CGI animals, as well as the return of James Earl Jones as the voice of Mufasa. The kids who voicedContinue reading “The Lion King 2019”

Fiddler on the Roof

Wow. This is all I can say when it comes to Fiddler on the Roof at the Orpheum: Wow. Fiddler at the Orpheum was amazing. Fiddler is the story of a poor milkman, Tevye, and his family–his wife Golde and their five daughters. Five daughters. As his three oldest girls find men in their livesContinue reading “Fiddler on the Roof”

The Music of Castlevania

Trevor Morris composes a rich world, one fraught with danger. The music for Castlevania is really good, one that captures the adventure and treacherous land of Wallacia, in the 1400s. Morris has done a fantastic job of creating a memorable atmosphere with his score. I love the theme for this TV show, which captures theContinue reading “The Music of Castlevania”

Hello, Dolly!

I love going to the theater. As a teenager, I was enamored with the high school version of Les Miserables. I listened to the Broadway version of Les Miserables so many times I had entire songs memorized. My parents and sister put up with playing the tape version for me in the car. I wouldContinue reading “Hello, Dolly!”

She’s Baaack!

Dessa’s Chime Dessa’s is back in business! Her singing is as powerful as ever; her raps are as crisp as a freshly printed piece of paper. She’s one of my favorite female rappers: strong, fierce, and unafraid to be honest. She’s part of the sick indie group known as Doomtree. I know those of youContinue reading “She’s Baaack!”

Queer Eye

I love this show. Rejuvenating the original Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, the new Fab 5 are a vibrant group of guys who help turn around the lives of men and women. This updated version of the show is heartfelt, funny, and really uplifting. (I’ve only seen a little bit of the old show,Continue reading “Queer Eye”
