Alita: Battle Angel Review

It seems like every year audiences are treated to big, CGI-heavy productions of fairly obscure properties; last year’s “Ready Player One” was a fun blockbuster that due to the caliber of its director (Steven Spielberg), I found to be kind of underwhelming.

The O.D. on Movies: Roma

With 2018 coming to a close, we wanted to end a wonderful year in entertainment with something special, and Netflix allowed us to do so, by making Alfonso Cuaron’s latest movie available. “Why is that special?” you may ask yourselves, and the answer to that is twofold; first Cuaron’s “Children of Men” is one of […]
