***SPOILERS AHEAD*** Like many Harry Potter fans, I went into “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald” hopeful and bursting with excitement. However, upon leaving the theatre, I couldn’t help but feel the movie wasn’t meant to expand on the intricate universe J.K. Rowling had created, ra...

Directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, “Ralph Breaks The Internet” is a wholehearted movie with a flare of Disney reminiscence. I recently saw “Ralph Breaks The Internet” which opened in theatres November 21, 2018. After Ralph and Vanellope, played by John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman, save t...

My experience with the Nutcracker is limited to the cartoon version on Tom and Jerry, which was watched every year during Christmas back in my childhood years.

Periodically throughout a year, book nerds absolutely spaz out over a new book and rave about it continuously.

The countdown is on. Only a handful of days linger until the final bell rings on May 27 and I am finished with high school forever, and I’m finally okay saying I am a senior and I am ready to graduate.
