For these reasons and many others, docking stations are becoming staples of both workplaces and homes alike, so it’s imperative to find a docking device that meets your...

Review: Hamilton Amazes Both Longtime Fans And Newcomers With Professionally Recorded Film

To say that Hamilton is a cultural phenomenon is almost an understatement. Since the musical first hit the big stage in 2015, it’s gained heaps of positive acclaim and a large unexpected fan following that have planted this play firmly in the cultural zeitgeist. A hip-hop musical about the founding fathers may have earned odd looks and scoffs at the beginning, but over time has garnered a following large enough to rival all other musicals, historical revolution-based or otherwise. However, despite its insurmountable fanbase, Hamilton could only be seen...

Review: Creative SXFI AIR Headphones

With so many audio devices on the market nowadays, it can be hard for developers to find a niche that will make their brand stand out to consumers. In the end, most developers focus their energy and resources on maximizing qualities that are expected of a good pair of headphones or earbuds, such as bass strength, clarity, sound personalization options, and similar features.

Review: Frozen II Embarks On A Breathtakingly Grand Journey, Despite Occasionally Getting Lost In The Woods

Frozen (2013) was a cultural phenomenon, there’s no doubt about that. You’d be hard-pressed to find someone that hasn’t at least heard a great deal about it, especially anyone with kids. Frozen can be easily argued as one of the Walt Disney Company’s biggest films of all time, making $1.2 billion at the box office and selling over $107 billion worth of merchandise. Given these monstrously gigantic figures, it doesn’t take a financial strategist to understand why Disney would want to make Frozen into a full franchise. And that...

Review: Spider-Man: Far From Home – Gracefully Passes Marvel’s Torch To A New Generation

After Infinity War and Endgame changed both the Marvel Cinematic Universe and our own world forever, it was hard to imagine what comes next. Where do you even go after undoing a catastrophic mass genocide and losing some of the biggest heroes in the game? “Well,” Marvel offers, “you go see how their legacy will carry on and evolve through the people that they left behind.” As usual, they knew just the path to take in the aftermath of one of the most popular movies ever released, and Spider-Man...

Review: Aladdin – Classic Brought to Reality

As many fans know, the Disney Renaissance was a revolutionary time period for animation that took place from about 1989 to 1999. We have this period to thank for many beloved titles such as The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Mulan, and Aladdin. Nearly every movie released at that time was a smash hit and most became instant classics that any respectable kid would enjoy on VHS for hours on end. Now that it’s 2019, the generation that grew up with these films have grown...
