‘Annabelle’ is a Bad Bitch, Y’all!
James Wan (Furious 7, The Conjuring) is taking a backseat on this as director David F. Sandberg (Lights Out) and writer Gary Dauberman (2014s Annabelle, 2017s IT) in this horror film, a horror film trying to establish the Conjuring universe.
Now I wasn’t a fan of the last Annabelle movie. I’ve told friends and family that Annabelle is the laziest horror movie villain I’ve ever seen. In the last film, all Annabelle did was sit on her flat wooden butt. The doll didn’t do anything except sit in a rocking chair, too lazy to even rock back and forth, and the evil doll just stares at you. You’re eating oatmeal for breakfast one day, you put the brown sugar on the table, the doll is across the room, and the next thing you know the brown sugar is not on the table. “Well damn, it must have been the doll! It’s (dramatic pause) evil!”
The Meaning of a Mentor: A Conversation with Coach Stuart Krohn
by Christopher M. Rzigalinski
If we’re lucky, we get at least one mentor that changes the direction of our lives. That person could be a teacher, a coach, or a family member. The student athletes of the Inner City Education Foundation (ICEF) Rugby program are lucky enough to have all three in Coach Stuart Krohn. After an All-American college rugby career and a professional playing career in France, New Zealand, Hong Kong, and South Africa, Krohn settled in Southern California to coach the Santa Monica Rugby Club in 1999. During that time he started teaching English and designing a plan to bring rugby to the economic disadvantaged communities of South Los Angeles.

I wasn’t initially going to review Detroit for many reasons that I’ll get into in a moment, but I’ve been thinking about it all day, and I found myself getting angrier while wondering why no-one else has picked up on the stupidity in this film. Maybe it is just me, maybe I am focusing too much on such a minor part of the film, but it’s a minor part that sets off the entire second act. And the fact that the film refuses to even acknowledge it is why it pisses me off.
