The heroine’s position in school has changed completely after meeting the ghost boy. Before she was the victim of bullying with no friends, working all alone in her mom’s laundromat. Now she has become a part of a friend group with the most popular girls, bullying someone else. The heroine’s life has changed completely, and now she has new problems. Delicates gives us perspectives of both people who have a place to be, and those who don’t through the eyes of teenage girls. Both comic books written by Brenna Thummler talks about the invisible people in our society. How they feel and what you should do to make them visible again. If you are feeling invisible, or not, this book is definitely the book to read. 4/5 Show less

The story revolves around the animals at Manor Farm. They fight off the humans on the farm, and start fresh new, to create a farm that is more animal friendly. However, certain animals begin to gain more knowledge, rights, and strength. The story has a dark, social and political view of things and is much more interesting than a normal fairytale. George Orwell uses the animals in Manor Farm to represent the people and the events of the Russian Revolution. The story is still engaging without this knowledge, but I think it would be more enjoyable relating events and characters to the Russian Revolution as you read the story. I would recommend this book to high school students. The story talks about an important and deep topic, but it is written in a simple story that anyone can read. 4.5/5 Show less

The movie uses bright colors, as if we are looking at the world through the eyes of the bright minded main character; Candice Phee. However, her family life is not going too well. Her mother is in bed all the time, and her father is having trouble dealing with his sick wife, financial issues, and her uncle who is not in a good relationship with him. The story revolves around her efforts to try to bring happiness to her family. The movie overall is entertaining and has a classic family movie touch. It has a quirky, childish taste, but with a little bit of a dark and depressing touch. This movie is an excellent choice for a family movie night. I think it would be a great way to spend time with the family during this pandemic. 4/5 Show less

The movie mainly focuses on the connection and the relationship between the brothers. The brothers are not very friendly to each other. They are constantly competing their sheep and haven’t talked to each other in ages. The silent battle between the brothers over their sheep first seemed to be overexaggerated and ridiculous, but as the movie continues, you realize how important sheep were to them, and their fights didn’t seem as ridiculous after all. The movie as I said before is a human drama-based movie, so there is not a lot of upbeat action and it doesn’t really keep you on the edge of your seat. However, it definitely is a well-made story, every character being human-like, and realistic. If you like drama movies and sheep this definitely is the movie for you. 3.5/5 Show less

It uses characters and settings to represent our world full of sin, God’s gates to heaven, how Christian believers have faith and work hard to obey the Word of God, and the obstacles they face during that path. The story gives you many topics to think about and reflect on while still being an entertaining movie. The movie did not have the best animations and is not the most engaging, but it still delivered important messages to the audience. This movie would be great to watch for Christian believers. This movie would also be great to watch as a family. It teaches children, and even adults, an important lesson. 3.5/5 Show less

Instead of waning as he ages, he grows younger in both body and mind. I personally find this to be a sad story. It is down hearting to see how he is treated by the people around him, just because he is different, and how he cannot be himself. This is a short story that can be easily read in about an hour. I recommend everyone to at least read it once in their life. It explores a what-if of the most weird and bizarre situation that we probably have never considered. It is sad yet interesting to read about the life story of the mysterious seventy-year-old infant. 4.5/5 Show less

It reminds you of the most wild and vast imaginations you had as a child, as you see four children adventuring to an island where they explore, fight and even get themselves caught into some real trouble. The movie gets you excited like a kid as the movie moves along and the characters make new discoveries and get into conflict. The setting of the movie is also beautiful. It seems like the movie uses no CG, but the setting the movie is taken is captivating and just glorious. The movie is a great family movie. It is a great way to get together as a family and enjoy during this pandemic isolation. 4/5 Show less

The story is about a half human half animal named Gus, who travels out of the woods after his father’s death. There he realizes his naiveness and the harsh reality that his breed is not accepted. He meets a man named Jepperd, who promises to take him to “The Preserves” where his kind is protected. The story, as I have said before, reminds me of the plot of some zombie fighting type video games. Except because of the main character’s dear like features and plaid shirt it also gives me a Canadian vibe. The odd and creepy art style of the graphic novel fits perfectly with the theme of the story. Some people may not prefer this art style, but I personally like it. This book is just the beginning of the story, so the flow of the story is still predictable if you have ever seen a zombie apocalypse type story. I am excited to find and read the next part of this story to see how this story will fold out. It is a book worth trying out! 4/5 Show less

He goes to grant his wife’s last wish: go to the remote lake at her native Ireland to spread her ashes with his son. However, his son, Sean Fogle, has just gotten out of prison and is not in a good relationship with Frank. The road trip has a lot more bumps than expected. Through the bumps, although the two struggle, they try to connect. The acting in the movie is outstanding, and the story is dramatic and touching. I recommend this to anyone who likes dramatic and touching movies. Crying is good for stress relief, so this might be the medicine for you if you are feeling anxious or stressed. 4/5 Show less

A lot more than at least I have ever imagined. As more people lay their hands on cellphones, more people use the text features and emojis to communicate with each other. Now almost everyone has a cellphone and everyone knows emojis. Emojis are becoming their own international language, and the documentary explores more about these picture characters. It shows interviews of researchers, designers, and creators of emojis. It even shows the process of attempting to process three different and new emojis. The documentary was entertaining and interesting, so much that it felt more like a reality TV show than a documentary. I recommend everyone to watch it. 4.5/5 Show less
