Small Foot (Movie Review)

I went to see the new movie Small Foot in theaters with my brother, his girlfriend, and her little sister this past Tuesday. I had a great time. We went to a movie theater in the city and the seats were sooo comfortable.

The Greatest Showman (Movie Review)

The Greatest Showman is a loose biographical film about P. T. Barnum and his role as an American Showman. It follows his journey from being the host of a museum of odd things to being the leader of a circus.

Eleanor & Park (Book Review)

*Synopsis*

Eleanor has just moved back in with her mother and stepfather after being kicked out a year ago. The move brings with it a new school and the need for readjustment. Her family doesn’t seem so accepting and neither do the kids at school.

Park is half Korean and half white. He’s lived his life dodging racist comments from Steve, his next door neighbor and trying to fit into the mold of the “All-American Teen.” He’s not trying to fall in love with an outcast.

No one was rooting for these two to be together, not even them. So, how does this become a love story in the first place? Guess you’ll just have to read it to find out.
