At nineteen years old (almost 20), I've started my own website, facebook.com/playbacksociety, sung in front of hundreds of people (terribly), rapped, made an absolute embarrassment of myself and continue to think that I have something meaningful to say.

Review: Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 2 is a worthy followup to the movie which redefined success. In fact, the first James Gunn directed entry was far from a sure thing. It featured an unknown superhero team that wasn’t The Avengers, with a cast of actors that seemed to be thrown …

Review: The Fate Of The Furious

The Fate of the Furious expects us to suspend disbelief and satisfaction in return for action and banter. The eighth installment of the Fast and the Furious franchise is not a good movie by normal standards, but also a disappointing entry into the 17-year long series. It’s definitely worth your money, but …

TV Show Review: Iron Fist

I wouldn’t wish Iron Fist on my greatest enemy. The American kung-fu master known as Iron Fist is a poor follow-up by Netflix to the likes of Daredevil, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage. From the very first episode, we are spun into the most boring roller-coaster ride yet. Danny Rand has just returned from …

Great Music You Missed – Ft. A Hated Childish Gambino, Abortion and The Weeknd

When we live in 2016, it’s easy to forget that Childish Gambino, The Weeknd and J. Cole, for a long time, weren’t all that popular. It was only a few years ago that Childish Gambino was just the funny ‘black’ guy on Community, The Weeknd another hopeful musician desperate to get …

Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day – Try Not to Cry I don’t often wander into Anime territory, but there’s a first time for everything. When we watch movies, sometimes we feel the need to laugh, enjoy ourselves or rage in anger. Anohana, on the other hand, makes you want …

Throwback: Great Music You Probably Missed – Ft. #sogonechallenge, Female R&B and Terrible Boyfriends

When we talk about 2000s R&B, the mind thinks of Chris Brown, Queen Bey, Usher and Ne-Yo. Forget them for a moment, because the early 2000s had some hella good female R&B music.  Music in 2016 is different, almost too different to the way things sounded a decade or two …

Dates – Realistic/Modern Day Dating Dating sucks. Relationships suck. People suck. But enough about my love life (or lack thereof).

Review: The Conjuring 2 (Film)

  The Conjuring 2 is another masterful direction by James Wan, but the notoriously spooky franchise trades scares for story in its second entry. Ed and Lorraine Warren return to protect those in need but instead of the classic nuclear family scenario with a father, mother and child, the film …

Throwback: Great TV Shows You Probably Missed ft. Pushing Daisies, The Wire, Coupling

Television is a crowded space. Beyond Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, Mr Robot and Suits, people don’t talk about much else. But there was a time when Twitter and Facebook didn’t dictate what you watched. In fact, the decision to watch something was often your own or by word of a trusted friend. …

Review: Suicide Squad (Movie)

Suicide Squad is a fun mess. David Ayer’s film, the newest entry in the DC cinematic extended universe is getting a really bad reputation for having choppy editing and a paper thin plot. With a Rottentomatoes score of under 30%, you would think that Suicide Squad isn’t worth your time. Well, you’re …

Review: Now You See Me 2 (DVD Release)

Now You See Me 2 never should have seen the light of day. From start to finish, Jon M. Chu’s follow up film from the poorly received Jem and the Holograms is an absolute mess. Now You See Me 2 lacks any semblance of a logical narrative, relying on its charismatic cast to carry …
