Having movie releases continually pushed back is going to be the future for a while as some movies were delayed from the inability to film, while many films are already finished and ready for release. Unfortunately, a delay to finish up the films and their CGI work makes a lot of sense, even though it did seem promising that everything would go according to plan, especially with the most recent Warner Bros. release, The Batman.

Love watching and writing about my favorite TV shows and movies, which makes this the perfect job for me. Prefer TV shows over movies, there is nothing better than getting emotionally invested in a long Tv show and its characters. Favorite genres include sitcoms, fantasy, and horror. Favorite TV shows include Friends, The Office, Parks and Rec, New Girl, Brooklyn 99, The Vampire Diaries, Nancy Drew, and The Haunting Of Hill House. Highly recommend all of these.
