Most Anticipated


Sweet Girl


I'm so pumped for this movie. When I first heard the premise of it, I'll be sounded like a dozen similar movies before it. Man loses wife, uncovers conspiracy, seeks revenge. Then I heard that Jason Momoa was cast in the leading role and that the premise isn't someone with superhuman abilities taking on an army...but a father just protecting his daughter and righting a wrong that haunts him. I was definitely more interested. Then I saw the trailer.



And I'm sold. There's just enough realism mixed in with some definitely needed suspension of belief when it comes to the action they show, but this looks amazing. Momoa hasn't honestly been given the chance to display much emotional depth in his most well-known roles, but it looks like he's going to nail it this time. The cinematography and fight choreography here looks top notch, and I can't wait to see how it plays out with him on the run from the FBI while hunting down those responsible for his wife's death. I know where I'll be when Sweet Girl drops August 20!



What I'm Watching Now


Can’t wait for the new shows and movies to drop? Need something bingeworthy now? I've got you covered.


I Think You Should Leave with Tim Robinson (Season 2)


Get ready to laugh. The second season of the surprisingly hilarious sketch show I Think You Should Leave dropped a few weeks ago, and Tim Robinson's never been funnier. Like most comedy, this show is definitely an acquired taste but if you give it a chance, you're sure to find more than one sketch that has you doubling over in hysterics. Think a funnier SNL meets dry stand up comedy meets Key & Peele and you're on the right track.



With a deep roster of guest stars and comedians including Will Forte, Bob Odenkirk, and Andy're sure to get a kick out of this show. I found the first season to be unbelievably well written, if not a touch offbeat, and season 2 definitely ups the ante. The sketches are fairly short in length as well, so if you're looking for a palette cleanser after that last horror movie or to have a great night laughing with your loved ones, look no further! Both seasons are streaming on NETFLIX!
