    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. The critically acclaimed Australian film, The Babadook, which might be described as a psychological thriller, resurfaces all the fears […]

    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 […]

    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 […]

    Scrooged is Objectively the Best Version of A Christmas Carol (Including the One by Charles Dickens)
    Posted in: Books, Movies

    Christmastime is upon us once again and that can mean only one thing: the return of holiday-themed media. Now, don’t get me wrong, this is a great and glorious thing. I personally believe that if it were socially acceptable to blast Trans-Siberian Orchestra’s Christmas Eve and Other Stories year-round, the world would be a much better […]

    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 […]
