You know that one mysterious house mate who you don’t see for days on end? Where do they go?
The Crimes of Grindelwald & the Wizarding World
I’ve seen Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald twice (so far), and have become entirely obsessed with everything about the movie—from the soundtrack to where it fits in the entire wizarding world.

Simply Soundtracks: Ori and the Blind Forest
I discovered Ori and the Blind Forest by listening to the soundtrack first, and it gained popularity because of how amazing both the soundtrack and the visual artwork. FULLY recommend it, if not for the soundtrack, just search for images of it. I promise you’ll be blown away.

Mini-Review – Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency (2016-17)
First episode. You don’t know what’s happening, you’re thrown into the deep end, just like the main character. He sees himself in a fluffy, blood-stained overcoat in the hotel where he works as a bellboy. In the penthouse suite, someone had died.
Review – Solo: A Star Wars Story (2018)
