Hamilton

In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, with Broadway and the film world grinding to a halt, the news that Disney had pushed up the release of a filmed version of Hamilton from October 2021 to July 3, 2020 took the world by storm. Originally filmed in late June 2016, this filmed stage performance of Hamilton, featuring the original Broadway cast, would give millions their first chance to see one of the hottest shows on Broadway, a title it has held since it premiered in 2015. Did this filmed performance of Hamilton live up to the hype? Keep reading to find out!

The Last of Us Part II (Spoiler Review)

Naughty Dog has released The Last of Us Part II on PlayStation 4. Usually, when I write game reviews I do my best to leave out any spoilers. As to avoid potentially ruining a game for players, I typically just discuss my experience with the games I play and highlight likes/dislikes.  With The Last of Us Part II, however, I feel compelled to openly discuss the game, its story, how emotionally raw and gutted it made me feel. I also believe that the only way to explain why this is the perfect game for 2020 is by speaking openly about it.  Without further ado, this is my Spoiler Review of The Last of Us Part II.

There was one game though that has been talked about for years because of its simplistic button smashing fun and that is SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom. Today, we will talk about what Purple Lamp Studios have done to make this one of the best looking remakes to come out in recent years. Are you ready kids?? Let's Dive In...

Pet Sematary starts off okay, then starts to drag a bit in the second act because of added story/material which most of it is not needed. However, the last...
