Movie Review: Snatched (2017)

I’m spending more time than I should trying to guess if the many vagina jokes in Amy Schumer’s sophomore effort are the reason for its title, Snatched, or not.

Movie Review: Hidden Figures (2016)

Mathematics and mathematicians may not appear to be the most dramatic material.
