Music Box Series: Jagged

Trigger warning: conversations about eating disorders Justin Bieber, Ryan Reynolds, Celine Dion, all beloved Canadian celebrities. However, no one can compare to Alanis Morissette. Always known in my heart as the woman who dated Uncle Joey, she empowered teen girls everywhere from the early 90s to today. This documentary shows the full scope of her … Continue reading Music Box Series: Jagged

Four Hours At The Capitol

As someone who cried on January 6th, this documentary is hard. However, like some other subjects, I believe that something that is hard to watch can still teach us something. The documentary interviews members of the crowd, Capitol security, and elected officials. Mainly compiled from unedited personal videos, it shows how the day escalated in … Continue reading Four Hours At The Capitol

Music Box Series: Woodstock 99: Peace, Love, and Rage

If you have the time to sit down and get educated about concerts past, watch this. I knew of THE Woodstock but either forgot or didn't know about the fail that was the 1999 Woodstock.

The Way Down: God, Greed, and the Cult of Gwen Shamblin

Episodes: 3 This wasn't as juicy as the trailer leads on but it is still great for how ridiculous it is. As far as cults go, this one isn't too out there. There aren't sacrifices or blood oaths, but there is an egotistical dictator whose influence leads to a death. As a Christian, it will … Continue reading The Way Down: God, Greed, and the Cult of Gwen Shamblin

This is a multi-episode expose to different events/people of the sporting world and its past. Needless to say, it was phenomenal.

All episodes are well done and include all of the key players in … Continue reading Untold

Rita Moreno: Just a Girl Who Decided to Go for It

If you have no idea who Rita Moreno is, watch this documentary. If you know you Rita Moreno is, watch this documentary. Based on my love of West Side Story, I started this expecting to enjoy this.
