“Peter Parker tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in Queens with his superhero alter-ego Spider-Man, and must confront a new menace prowling the skies of New York City.” —IMDB

It took forever to see this movie. You may think that since I work at the theater, I get to see the movies, but that is not the case. I do not get to see the movies when I am working, and after a hard-long weekend, the last thing on my mind is going to the movies. So just keep that in mind the next time you ask the person selling you the tickets if they have seen the movie yet. Continue reading “Thankfully Light and Fun | Review of ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’”

A Hilarious Next Generation Film | Review of ‘Vacation’


By Cynthia Ayala

‘Vacation’ starring Ed Helms & Christina Applegate
Warner Bros. Pictures

Rusty Griswold, the youngest child from 1983’s National Lampoon’s Vacation is all grown up with a family of his own and fond childhood memories of a certain family road trip to Walley World, “America’s Favorite Family Fun Park.” Like his father, Clark, Rusty wants to forge closer bonds with his own family – wife Debbie and boys James and Kevin – so he buys a souped-up Albanian van and convinces them to set off on their own crazy cross-country jaunt to Walley World.

Thyne, Jonathan Adams, Tamara Taylor & John Francis Daley “The Woman in White”:  They finally got married!  I haven’t really been watching this show because Polant, yeah I could not stand him as a villain, and the actor did not bring any charisma to his character.  But that’s beside the point.  I had to tune in because they were finally getting married!  So that was a great episode.  First there’s a murder, but this is Bones, there is always a murder.  Except … Continue reading Monday Night TV (21 Oct 2013) | TV Reviews

Sweet’s is an amazing character and the actor (John Francis Daley) is amazing.  The way he says all his psychological terms and analysis are amazing, I mean I believe, sometimes, that he really is a psychologist because the actor is just very good at what he does.  Hodgins (played by T.

Thyne acted with his eyes bugging out and his voice rising and stern, and his body moving … Continue reading Monday Night TV (21 Jan 2013)
