Captain Marvel Review

      It seems like just yesterday when Avengers: Infinity War made our jaws drop at its ending, but on March 8th Captain Marvel was released world wide and it marked the 21st film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe ( MCU ). In this film we learn more about the overall history of the MCU and other than proving some awesome action sequences, this is no Infinity War and it doesn't have as much impact it's truly more of a filler movie in the wake of Avengers: Endgame. Regardless, the movie was fun and if you truly can't wait for more from the MCU till the next Avenger's entry, I know you won't mind watching it.

Animal Farm

     Animal Farm written by George Orwell is a book I was recently assigned by my teacher.  As soon as I was given my book I really just thought, " Great another boring book." I was quickly proven wrong, Animal Farm is much more than just a story about animal and how they over throw a farm and take over it. George Orwell quite honestly wrote not a fairy tale but rather a political commentary on what was going on at the time ( Russian Revolution). Animal Farm is a good book, you will be quite fascinated by the many applicable and still relevant themes in our society even when the book was written more than seven decades ago!!! If you ever find yourself bored and with a lot of time on your hands, you should barrow this book and read it I'm sure you won't regret it.
