I’m a proud 90’s kid. Born in January 1990, you can’t really get more 90’s than that. The 90’s was filled with waves of transient fads that went in and out, and we tended to them like pets. Quite literally if you kept Tamagotchis and Furbies. Yes, those furry, temperamental, …

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.

Psyched: Are you vain because you are proud of yourself?
