Quick Rant…The First Debate

On September 29, 2020, at nine o’clock p.m., the first debate for the 2020 presidential election took place. And it was, in short, a disaster. 

I don’t know what I was expecting, but it wasn’t that. At the same time, though, I am not surprised in the slightest. Donald Trump is not and was not presidential. He is the one that constantly interrupted both Biden and moderator Chris Wallace. He is the one that dodged simple questions. He is the one that played dirty. Simply put, he is a first class bully whose defining characteristic is aggression, a trait that should not be the hallmark of the President of the United States of America.

I want to make it perfectly clear that there is no perfect politician. There is no perfect human being, so there is no perfect political figure. But Trump is not a politician. He is a former reality show host that mistakenly ended up in the White House. He values the dramatics over politics, which was made abundantly clear by his performance.

If there is one thing that was heard loud and clear over the garble, it’s that we cannot endure another four years of Trump’s rhetoric. We cannot allow him to continue his racist, sexist, and immoral proceedings. 

We have the opportunity to change the way America is operating, and that opportunity is Joe Biden. So please, for the love of all that’s good in the world, get out there on November 3rd (if you are not voting by mail or taking part in early voting) and vote for Biden. We need a president who has the guts to condemn white supremacy on live television.

I’ll admit, I wasn’t a fan of the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie from pre-pandemic 2020, which I didn’t think was a hot take at the time, but oh was I wrong! As video game movies go, the film adaptation of beloved Sega character Sonic was weirdly accepted, some even dubbing it the best video […]

The Batman Review

Throughout Batman’s onscreen history, we’ve seemingly explored every angle the character has.  From the goofy surrealism of Adam West-era Batman, to Gothic camp of Tim Burton’s Batman,  and then the maximalist circus of Joel Schumacher’s Batman, ending with the gritty realism of Christopher Nolan’s Batman, the film history of the Dark Knight is full of […]
