Is ”Spencer” A Royal Disaster? The 2021 blockbuster film Spencer, directed by Pablo Larraín, written by Steven Knight, and starring Kristen Stewart has been one of this season's most teased films and has been praised by numerous critics. I, however, did not care for it and I had a lot of cold medicine because I'm sick again and I was not in the mood to agree with these critics, so here's my review/rant about Spencer.
How Great is ‘The Great Gatsby‘? In 1925, F.

Also, please be careful behind the wheel.

Is "Rasputin" by Boney M Accurate? If you've ever listened to Boney M's classic song, "Rasputin", you've probably wondered whether or not this crazy tale is actually true. Well, wonder no more! In this episode, we dig into the truth behind the lyrics and the real and wild life of Grigory Rasputin.
What’s the Difference Between Bach, Mozart, and Beethoven? Sometimes classical music can be confusing.
