    Posted in: Movies, TV

    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 […]

    The Ill-Fated Mothering of Alien Bastard Children in Contemporary Sci-Fi
    Posted in: Books, Movies

    Science Fiction has long been a meditative genre; a mirror for one to view the human condition through bionic eyes and through the cockpits of wormhole-accessible spacecraft. In more contemporary sci-fi, however, we can find new elements emerging in the fogged lens of our mirror. Sci-fi now not only reflects gender issues more prominently, such […]

    Whiplash Review
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    When the blood begins to spurt from the webbing between his thumb and his forefinger, seeming to splash in time with the unrelenting jazz drumbeat, you just want it to be over. In fact, you wanted it to be over three minutes ago, when you could see the post-traumatic stress already beginning to form in […]

    The Babadook Review
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    I should start by saying that if you’ve ever had to look under your bed for monsters or check to make sure your closet door was closed while you slept, this film is not for you.

    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 […]

    Love Is Strange Review
    Posted in: Movies

    Ira Sachs’ Love Is Strange is a gorgeous 90-minute window into a 40-year-relationship and one of the best films about love in the last five years. The movie opens with the wedding of Ben (John Lithgow), a vivacious painter who never quite achieved the success he expected, and George (Alfred Molina), an introspective music teacher—finally […]

  • The Interview
    Kim Jong-Un Might Have Been Right to Fear The Interview
    Posted in: Movies

    For better or worse, The Interview has probably become the most controversial film of our time. Ever since the first trailer came out, the media has extensively covered the back and forth between Sony Pictures and the government of North Korea through both official and unofficial channels, from Sony’s early concession to edit out a […]
