Oscar season is in full swing which means we are ramping up for our first ever Golden Donut Awards. As that approaches, I will be attempting to see and review as many of the “Oscar caliber” movies as I can. My first target- Green Book. Green Book is based on a true story taking place in…

BlacKkKlansman Review- Jordan

BlacKkKlansman is the latest film from Spike Lee. This one tells the true story of the first black police officer in Colorado Springs named Ron Stallworth (played by John David Washington, Denzel’s son) who, soon after joining the force, infiltrates the Ku Klux Klan over the phone. Together with Kylo Ren Adam Driver, who doubles…

Adrift Review- Jordan

Thank God Shailene Woodley got out of doing those Divergent movies. She deserves a chance to really shine.

Criminal Movie Review

I actually got to see this movie last week at a free screening, but decided to hold off on the review until the week of its release to make it feel more relevant and hopefully avoid any trouble I could get into from reviewing it too early. Criminal is about an imprisoned psychopath (Kevin Costner) who…
