Nick is a Contributing Writer and Content Editor at Talkies Network. He studies Political Science, Classical Civilizations, and Cinema Studies at the University of Toronto. In other words... a future barista in training. His love for pop culture (especially movies, comics, and music... Wes Anderson if you are reading this: you are amazing) and an ever so slight hint of a want-to-be-hipster persona makes him an ideal candidate to indoctrinate everyone (like the Reapers in Mass Effect) into reading and loving his articles.

‘Dark Phoenix’ Film Review

Why? This word perfectly encapsulates my frustration with the existence of this film. Why also happens to be the mantra which I constantly repeated out loud in the near empty theatre forming questions such as: Why was this movie made? Who thought this would be a good idea? Why did Sophie Turner enroll in the Bella Swan school of ...

Enter the Archie-Verse: An Interview with Archie Comics CEO Jon Goldwater

The Archie comics have always meant a lot to me. When I was growing up, I was put into french immersion... but I sucked at french... being my third language and all (no mom, I'm not making an excuse I'm just stating a fact). During the many silent reading periods in my junior school, my ...

‘Sucker’ – A Jonas Brothers Song Review

With midterm season wrapping up and essay season ploughing full steam ahead, a good night's sleep has been increasingly hard to come by.

However, this review will not discuss the tear inducing ending, for obvious reasons, as according to my boss, my ...

‘The Grinch’ Film Review

'Tis the season… the season for Christmas movies. Slowly but surely, more and more holiday themed films are being pumped out by studios and streaming networks alike (looking at you Netflix). In my previous review, I may have come off as someone who doesn’t particularly like Christmas or the holidays in general. That is certainly ...

‘The Nutcracker and the Four Realms’ Film Review

The November 1st release date for this movie tells all. Once again, as soon as Halloween passes, Christmas takes a stranglehold of the market for the following couple of months. Walking into an Indigo Book store (or, for you purists out there, a Chapters), the decorations were festive, and the music of Michael Bublé has ...

‘A Star is Born’ Film Review | TIFF 2018

** Warning: Spoiler alert ahead for an amazing movie ** One of the preeminent films for early Oscar consideration, A Star is Born is a cautionary tale filled with beautiful peaks and nightmare inducing lows.
