    Calvin’s Cinema
    Posted in: Comics, Featured, Movies

    Life is all a big performance for Calvin, with everything he does being bigger in his mind than it really is. That makes him the perfect subject to take on some of the best lines from some of the most iconic films of all time. Some of the lines featured on this page will be […]

    Who Is Doctor Strange?
    Posted in: Comics, Featured, Movies

    Who is Doctor Stephen Strange? An arrogant neurosurgeon. A tortured soul. The sorcerer supreme. Most importantly for us, he is Benedict Cumberbatch… hopefully. There is still no official announcement from Marvel and hopefully this casting doesn’t go the way of Joaquin Phoenix, but as of now, the fantastically named Englishman will take the reins. Marvel’s […]

    Walking Dead – Season 4 From Jackson Lewis Compared to the rest of the series up to this point, season four of The Walking Dead is largely disappointing. The first five episodes are clearly filler, and many episodes afterwards serve little purpose other than exposition or portraits of characters that the audience has little reason […]

    A Few Star Wars Tropes Disney Should Avoid
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    As world shattering to pop culture and storytelling as the original Star Wars trilogy was, the movies were not without their flaws. None of the pronunciations of planets or species were consistent. The worst actors in A New Hope were the Stormtroopers. They weren’t even actors! They were voiced by disk jockeys across the street […]

    Gone Girl Review From A Reader
    Posted in: Movies

    “Amy is ten times crazier in the book.” It was a sentence I said to everyone I knew who’d seen Gone Girl and hadn’t read Gillian Flynn’s original novel. I told friends, coworkers, my movie-viewing partner. I felt it needed to be said, since Rosamund Pike’s icy, measured, sociopathic Amy was already pretty far-gone, mentally speaking. Gone Girl, David Fincher’s […]

    Gone Girl Review From A Non-Reader
    Posted in: Movies

    Director David Fincher’s mind must be a dark, stylish place… That is, if his mind mirrors the movies he makes. Se7en, Zodiac, and The Game show that murder-mysteries are Fincher’s wheel house, and now the director is back with Gone Girl—the film adaptation of the super popular book of the same name. Gone Girl gives […]

    Death Note From Jackson Lewis If you’ve never watched anime before but have always been curious, Death Note is a great place to start. If you’re already an anime fan and you haven’t seen Death Note, that rock you’re living under must be gigantic. This mix of detective drama and supernatural thriller will have you […]

    The Zero Theorem Review
    Posted in: Featured, Movies

    One memorable scene from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory involves Wonka and his guests on a boat that keeps going and going through a terrifying tunnel as the walls rush past, faster and faster. It’s a brief moment of nightmare that’s made bearable by the knowledge that a candy paradise is at either end. In […]

    Carrie Review
    Posted in: Movies

    I remember my senior prom very fondly. It was at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago, which is just about as awesome of a location for a prom as possible. I think the only place better would be in an ice castle, and that isn’t really feasible in the Midwest in May. But […]
