Coco Movie Review

Coco, Pixar’s newest movie, opens this Wednesday just in time for Thanksgiving! Pixar’s ability to tell a great story continues to blow me away.  However, this story deals with a lot of death, some murder, and unsupportive family.  It seemed a bit of a darker tone than some of their previous movies.  But with that […]

Queen of Katwe Movie Review

If you are going to the movies this week, you must see Queen of Katwe. It’s inspiring to watch 10-year-old Phiona overcome so many obstacles and extreme poverty to become such an amazing chess player in Uganda. “Living in the slum of Katwe in Kampala, Uganda, is a constant struggle for 10-year-old Phiona (Madina Nalwanga) and […]
