Darkest Hour

After reading books like The Century Trilogy, The Women in the Castle, and All the Light We Cannot See, watching shows like The Man in the High Castle, The Crown, and Band of Brothers, and finally watching Dunkirk, I was really starting to feel like a bit of a World War II-era history expert.

Thor: Ragnarok

It had been quite a while since I  last saw a movie in theaters, and apparently I only see ones about comic book characters now.

Set in New … More Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them
