Seaspiracy (2021) – Review

This new, thought-provoking documentary highlights the damage that humans are really doing to our very own ocean life, while also uncovering an alarming amount of corruption that is happening on a global scale. Seaspiracy is available to stream on Netflix, but it has to be said that there are a number of extremely raw and upsetting scenes of animal cruelty included. If you’re able to get past that, however, I’d encourage anybody to watch this at least once in their lifetime.

Coming to America (1988) – Review

Coming to America revolves around a privileged and somewhat sheltered African Prince named Akeem (Eddie Murphy), who formulates a plan to travel to New York and go undercover, thus attempting to find a wife that he can appreciate for both her beauty and intelligence. Leaving behind his homeland of Zamunda, he must mingle with the locals and become accustomed to a more “normal” lifestyle, relinquishing the lavish one he is so accustomed to. A timeless comedy, that is now over thirty years old.

Amid this terrifying news, panic and anarchy ensues around them, making their quest for survival that little bit more difficult.
