MOXIE is Amy Poehler’s recent project which she directed and co-starred as a divorced mom of a quiet teenager. This movie is all about those angst years of finding your own voice within the unfair system of high school.


So many feminist issues are the norm for every female at this school. Males rule and the girls are supposed to just sit back and let the gender abuse roll off their misunderstood bodies.


MOXIE tries to find that balance for all of their school problems whether it be in sports, dating, no means no, respect, helping each other and having consequences for everyone equally. This is a tall order for any film, and at times MOXIE falls short.


It is impossible to believe this much change can occur quickly. But it is uplifting and hopeful and helps us realize that we can strive to be better. It definitely doesn’t hurt to have the band, Bikini Kill, as the dominant music we hear throughout. Even for a woman of my age, my toes were tapping away to the fun, rebellious beat!


MOXIE is available to stream on Netflix


Collaborative review from Tarush, DigitalJami, Mike and Aaron on WANDAVISION's groundbreaking limited series..

Favorite MCU movie: ANT-MAN


WandaVision is the perfect reflection of how much the line between movies and TV has blurred. We basically got a midnight-Marvel premiere every week for 2 months - complete with the humor, action, and fan theories that make the movies great. But WandaVision could only really work as a TV show and I liked the throwback sitcom episodes as entertaining (if not more) than the more typical Marvel fare.

Favorite MCU movie: AVENGERS: ENDGAME


WANDAVISION represents a bold and different direction for the MCU that was new, ambitious, and brilliant. The sheer fact that the franchise just did a sitcom/comic book/drama hybrid—something COMPLETELY unheard of—and pulled it off is a testament to how well thought out this franchise is under the leadership of Kevin Feige, and is indicative of why after 23 movies it’s still the most popular, collectively well received franchise in history; and it deserves to be! It employs a masterful “show not tell” approach to keep it compelling week after week, and yet at the end, manages to smartly focus on a simple, heartfelt, somber, character driven story of grief and loss and their effects on people who have spent their lives enduring tragedy.

Favorite MCU movie: CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER


After the first full year since 2008 without a single MCU movie, WANDAVISION was a welcome follow-up and gave two very deserving characters their time to shine. While the sitcom nostalgia and superhero tricks were fun, Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany’s superb performances gave the show a consistently strong core and a wonderful emotional nuance often lost in these types of shows. WANDAVISION is a must-see for Marvel fans and can easily be enjoyed by the casual superhero fan or anyone who hasn’t seen a moment of the MCU.

Favorite MCU movie: DOCTOR STRANGE


Just when I thought that WANDAVISION was “not that kind of show,” the ENDGAME, aka series finale, proved that it is exactly the kind of Marvel series audiences have come to expect. While this is nowhere near the letdown of the mystery series LOST, it just didn’t soar to the heights of the most recent (and best comic book TV series of all time) WATCHMEN. As the characters in WANDA learn how to say goodbye, there’s no doubt that audiences won’t have to since these characters will more than likely be saying hello again in future MCU universe movies.

As a huge fan of Coming to America (1988), I can confidently say that the movie, which I think still holds up after all these years, rises and falls on the chemistry and energy of its dynamic duo, Eddie Murphy and Arsenio Hall.


Unfortunately you barely get any of those things in this disappointing and underwhelming sequel.


Is it a complete trainwreck? No. Definitely nothing close to the lows of Anchorman 2 or Zoolander 2. I will admit I laughed hard in 2 scenes, and politely chuckled through most of it. And overall it was good to catch up with characters I like 33 years later. That, and only that, is the reason I can't give it a full "Experience Never".


That said, I can honestly say I had no interest at all in seeing a sequel to, perhaps, Eddie Murphy's funniest comedy, only to have it focus is on Jermaine Fowler, who's honestly doing his best 2021 Fresh Prince impersonation--only without the laughs. That's what 65% of this movie is.


If Prince Akeem is truly looking for a worthy successor, it sure as hell ain't COMING 2 AMERICA.


Catch the mediocrity on Amazon Prime if you're bored and need something to do. (Or just watch the original if you actually wanna, you know, laugh).
