November/December Favorites 2017

Music The Thrill of It All by Sam Smith https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WMAtfhATTLg It wasn't until Sam Smith made his comeback with his latest album that I realized how much I missed his voice during his 3-year hiatus. I don't need to tell y'all about his amazing, effortless vocals, but I will say this album is so beautifully composed … Continue reading November/December Favorites 2017

Coco | Movie Review

Over Thanksgiving weekend, my family and I watched Disney/Pixar's Coco. The film follows Miguel Rivera (voiced by Anthony Gonzalez), a 12-year-old Mexican boy who aspires to be a musician like his idol, Ernesto de la Cruz. However, the Rivera family has a strict no-music policy, which originated generations ago when Miguel’s great-great-grandmother was abandoned by … Continue reading Coco | Movie Review

Dunkirk | Movie Review

(Disclaimer: There are “spoilers” ahead, but considering the film is based on historical events, are they really spoilers?) Having been educated in the American school system, the battle and evacuation of Dunkirk is something I had never heard of prior to this film. It’s a shame, really, considering it’s not only a decisive moment during … Continue reading Dunkirk | Movie Review

July Favorites

  Books Born a Crime by Trevor Noah I'm a fan of Trevor Noah's standup and his work as host of The Daily Show, so I knew to expect the same intelligent wit in his writing as well. But while this book definitely has a comedic undertone, he mixes in some seriousness as he discusses his … Continue reading July Favorites
