The Brothers Grimsby - Review

    Sacha Baron Cohen is funny. Characters such as Ali G, Borat, Bruno, and General Admiral Aladeen were all daring in their own way.

Zootopia - Review

   Yes this review is an incredibly late review, but it was something I just had to get out there no matter the time. Disney proves once again why they’ve been doing this animation thing at such a high level for such a long time. Sure there was a bad period in early part of the century, but otherwise Disney has produced hit after hit and the 55th release from the storied studio is no different.
