    Love & Mercy Review
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    As a child, there wasn’t a roadtrip my family took without the Endless Summer cassette playing our way across the endless terrain that my dad insisted on driving. Sure, there were plenty of surf classics on there, but my brother and I were always partial to some of the mid-tape songs such as “Girl Don’t Tell Me.” […]

    And to further borrow from the brilliance of (500) Days of Summer… It’s these cards and the movies and the pop songs, they’re to blame for all lies and the heartache, everything. Keeping that in mind, we’ve decided to bring you some cards that you can use for people you actually like, instead of just handing […]

    Unbroken Review
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    When a movie about an Olympian and a war hero releases on Christmas Day, it’s easy to see exactly what the studio is thinking: The Academy Awards. And that’s fine. Films rarely suffer if the studio markets them as an award contender. Where films can suffer is when the filmmakers are making them in a […]

    The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Review
    Posted in: Movies

    Full disclaimer: The Lord of the Rings is my favorite trilogy of all time and I love The Hobbit novel. In my younger years, I spent a full month attempting to learn Tolkien’s elvish language in order to be able to communicate with no one. So going into Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy I had high expectations, but I also had an […]

    Do They Know It’s Christmas? 30 Years Later
    Posted in: Featured, Music

    When I was a child, there was only a very small selection of Christmas songs that I would actually dread hearing on the radio. Most of those songs, I still dislike to this day. If I flip to a station playing Brenda Lee’s version of Rocking Around The Christmas Tree, the dial is spun faster […]

    Ranking The Killers’ Christmas Songs
    Posted in: Music

    Since 2006, the Killers have released a Christmas song each year, with the profits going to support the RED campaign. Instead of covering some of the standards, Brandon Flowers and co. have found a way to come up with originals that not only serve as quality purveyors of Christmas cheer, but also stick to the […]

    NerdGlow’s Netflix Recommendations Pt. 10
    Posted in: Movies, TV

    Black Mirror From Claire Rychlewski The first time I heard the title Black Mirror, I thought, “Oh, I get it! The black screens of our phones and computers and televisions really serve as a reflection of humanity’s current state. Cool.” It’s not often that I connect with a work’s title so instantly, but Black Mirror […]

    The Theory of Everything Review
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    I imagine one of the most difficult challenges for a writer and filmmaker must be finding a way to make a story interesting when everyone already knows the ending. In The Theory of Everything, we know that Stephen Hawking doesn’t die after two years. We know that he ends up becoming a highly-respected theoretical physicist. Even those […]
