“Sex Education” makes a surface level attempt to break the mold and only lands with inattentive audiences. This show is one of Netflix’s most recent attempts at a hit. However, it comes off just so — as an attempt. With a storyline full of tropes it is clear the show is trying too hard. “...

I’ve heard of “Roma” for a few weeks now and wanted to see what all the hype was about. All I have to say about the movie is, it is an amazing portrayal of life in Mexico, and it deserves all the award nominations it’s been getting. “Roma” directed by Alfonso Cuarón is a beautiful tale...
