No other villain in the universe—Marvel’s Cinematic Universe that is—needed the combined forces of an entire roster of superheroes to defeat him. In Avengers: Infinity War (2018), Doctor Strange saw more than 14 million scenarios play out. And yet, the Avengers were only able to defeat him in just one. Yes, Thanos is that powerful. When he had the Infinity Stones, a single snap from him can do so much! Everyone wants to hate him (and everyone does). At the same time, it’s hard not to bow down to how incredibly great he is as a character. Let’s do that right now. We…

That is definitely no ordinary feat. CBS Blue Bloods Cast Tom Selleck top-bills this story of an Irish-American family in the city of New York as Frank. Together with Donnie Wahlberg, Bridget Moynahan, and Will Estes, who play his children Danny, Erin, and Jamie, they form an otherwise typical family whose lives are irretrievably intertwined with the field of law enforcement. They are crime…

Decoding Us (2019) and the Ending that Left Everyone Thinking What the hell just happened? That is the reaction truly well-crafted horror flicks seek to elicit from their viewers. I guess it’s true what they say—good horror films will shock you, but great horror films will boggle your mind. Perhaps one of the best films that the horror genre has given birth to in the previous years is the 2019 thriller Us.  Penned and brought to life by the same genius behind 2018’s Get Out, what else was there really to expect from a film featuring a riveting performance by the award-winning phenomenon that is Lupita Nyong’o?…
