Destiny Ricks

Born and raised in Columbus, Georgia, Destiny Ricks doesn’t describe herself as the typical Southern Belle. Growing up, Ricks often lost herself in the various fascinating worlds she found in literature and comic books, particularly with Batman. Her mother, an educator, instilled a love of reading and writing in her and once her brother gifted her a camera, the rest, as they say, is history. On her YouTube channel, Ricks discusses and analyzes films and often geeks out about the latest comic book properties. Ricks is a nerd through and through and you can find her at her most chaotic on her Twitter.

‘Titans’ season 3 is at a standstill


“Titans” season 3, episode 9, titled “Souls,” has premiered, and it confirms that the newest season of “Titans” has no idea where it’s going. Like the characters in this episode, “Souls” felt lost and like a narrative block, rather than a necessary stop on the journey.

‘Titans’ season 3 continues to go downhill


It’s clear to see “Titans” season 3 has hit a slump with episode 8, and it’s getting hard to see if the series can or will recover from the troubled exposition. The most recent installment of the series was titled “Home”, however, the story and direction felt utterly incoherent and out of place. A noticeable flaw that does weigh the series down from reaching its true potential. 

‘Titans’ Season 3 is starting to lose focus

Season 3 of “Titans” is starting to slow down, and reveal one of the main problems from past seasons. There’s no focus. While we did get some much-needed teamwork in this episode, there’s still so much left on the drawing room table.

‘Shang-Chi’ is the best Marvel content this year


“Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” has finally premiered and it has introduced the newest Marvel hero to audiences, the titular character, Shang-Chi, played by actor Simu Liu. “Shang-Chi” is a movie that everyone should witness because it’s absolutely phenomenal. Any fan of martial arts movies, Marvel, or even Tony Leung himself will have a great time watching “Shang-Chi.”

‘Titans’ season 3 delivers another solid episode with ‘Lady Vic’

Season 3, episode 6 of “Titans,” titled “Lady Vic,” is yet another solid episode to add to this season’s repertoire. While it’s not a perfect episode, it gives more background to a beloved character and starts to establish a new character’s place in the Titans family. This review contains spoilers for season 3, episode 6 of ‘Titans’

The latest episode of ‘Titans’ is a stellar deep-dive into Jason Todd


Season 3, Episode 5 of “Titans,” titled “Lazarus,” gives the viewers a deep dive into the psyche of Jason Todd and the origin of the Red Hood. It is a great flashback episode because it doesn’t feel like it’s breaking the show’s pace. Instead, more insight is given on a crucial player in “Titans,” Jason Todd, his fear, and the wrong path he took to conquer it. This episode also operates as a great character study and a deeper examination of Jason and Bruce’s relationship.

‘Spider-Man: No Way Home’ trailer drops after serious leaks


“Spider-Man: No Way Home” is arguably one of the most anticipated movies of 2021, and it’s been a long and bumpy road to get to the first official trailer release. Rumors have continuously circulated for months on when fans would get a glimpse at the newest Spider-Man movie. From possibly releasing on the star Tom Holland’s birthday, to releasing near the “Black Widow” premiere to play in front of the movie, no one’s guess was on the mark.

‘Titans’ 3×4: A filler episode with great character moments


Episode four of “Titans” finally introduces the long-anticipated character, Blackfire, but it ultimately feels like a filler episode in terms of the story. Aptly titled “Blackfire,” episode four sets up storylines for both Starfire and Nightwing to explore going forward in season three. 

Watching ‘Smallville’ is an unforgettable experience


This summer I took on the endeavor of watching the iconic Superman television show, “Smallville.” In college, I watched the first three seasons of the show, but unfortunately, life got in the way. Recently, the inspiration hit me to revisit “Smallville,” and I’m so glad it did.

‘Snake Eyes’ surprises

Henry Golding plays Snake Eyes in Snake Eyes: G.I. Joe Origins from Paramount Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures and Skydance.

“Snake Eyes” is the newest action-packed popcorn film, but any viewer that enters the theater will find that “Snake Eyes” is more than just the standard fare. While many have been burned by the G. I. Joe films that have come before, “Snake Eyes” is a pleasant surprise, not only filled to the brim with amazing action set pieces, but an engaging story as well.
