    On New Girl, Zooey Deschanel, And Chilling Out On The Hate
    Posted in: TV

    I like Zooey Deschanel. There. I’ve said it. For a very long time, probably since 500 Days of Summer came out and that cultural archetype that we’ve all come to embrace for those unordinary, quirky female characters was coined, I’ve felt a very intense pressure to hate Deschanel. Or perhaps, what she, singularly, seemed to represent. Friends, peers, […]

    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 […]

    Distilling Why the Masses Love Gilmore Girls
    Posted in: TV

    In retrospect, when I watched the Gilmore Girls pilot for the first time it was the same as it is today, and has been several odd times between then and now. The DVD box sets are lined up on a shelf in a house I no longer populate, and are something I revisit in the […]

    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 […]

    Gone With The Wind Returns To The Big Screen
    Posted in: Movies

    The experience of going to the movie theater can’t be matched. Movies are filmed to be viewed on the big screen. Popcorn doesn’t taste the same anywhere else. The cool darkness of the theater and the reverberation of the surround sound drown out the rest of the world. Suddenly you’ve arrived in Middle Earth, or […]
