Posted Sep 25, 2015
B 69% Scream Queens: Season 1 (TV, 2015) "It's an odd mash-up that leaves little room for real connection to the characters, having faith instead in laughs and blood. Then again, laughs and blood have a good track record. " ‐ Detroit News

Posted Aug 7, 2015

B- 52% A LEGO Brickumentary (2015) "True, "A LEGO Brickumentary" is a barely disguised hour-and-a-half commercial. But as hour-and-a-half commercials go, it's somewhat interesting. " ‐ Detroit News
