My Thoughts on “Sonic the Hedgehog” (2020) Spoiler-Free

I would like to preface this review by saying I have absolutely no emotional ties with Sonic the Hedgehog in any capacity. I did not watch the cartoon, I did not buy the video games, and as I child I had no interest in doing so. The only reason I chose to see it was [...]

“Knives Out” Film Review

WARNING: The following contains spoilers for Knives Out.
