MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Friend Request’ will make you want to delete your account

Horror reflects our society at every turn, whether we realize it or not. “Rosemary’s Baby” depicted horror as a depiction of violence against women, “Dawn of the Dead” dealt with modern consumerism, “The People Under the Stairs” dealt with Reagan-era class divides and Jordan Peele’s “Get Out” tackled 21st century racism. Each of these films […]

From Atlanta to Alexandria: Ranking All 99 Episodes of ‘The Walking Dead’

On Halloween Night back in 2010, AMC debuted its zombie-apocalypse drama “The Walking Dead,” becoming an immediate hit with fans and critics.

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’ is a gracefully lesser sequel

Back in very early 2015, I somehow snagged passes to an early screening of Matthew Vaughn’s “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” a film I arguably didn’t know too much about going into, but ended up having an insane amount of fun with, awarding it a perfect 5/5 and having it land the number 8 spot on […]

TV REVIEW: ‘Fear the Walking Dead’ – ‘La Serpiente’

Spoiler Warning for Season 3, Episode 11 of “Fear the Walking Dead,” as well as all previous episodes of the series. Damn…I am impressed. I say that, because in my review of the midseason premiere, I stated the series was beginning to feel a bit rushed and the breakneck pacing was making things somewhat hard […]

Mesmerizing Compassion with Paramore’s Tour Two

Photos by Pooja Pasupula . I’ve always made a distinction between artists: there are singers, and there are performers. Like the whole “not every rectangle is a square” line, not every performer is a singer. Going into the Ovens Auditorium, I expected Paramore to be performers: give you a good show, a lot of jumping and […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘mother!’ is a beautifully bleak masterwork of epically unpredictable proportions

If anyone has ever talked to me about movies before, you would know that “Kill Bill” is my favorite film of all time, but not that many people know what my second favorite film of all time is: “Black Swan.” Darren Aronofsky’s 2010 psychological thriller paints a beautifully chaotic picture of the downfall of a […]

TV REVIEW: ‘Preacher’ – Season 2

Spoiler Warning for Season 2 of “Preacher,” as well as all episodes of the first season. When AMC debuted its new series “Preacher” during the summer of 2016, I watched the season and was genuinely confused by the premise and the direction things were headed. I was certainly intrigued, but it wasn’t until the finale that […]

A Nerd’s Guide to Dragon Con 2017

My phone battery is struggling, somehow managing to sink down to six percent in merely a couple of hours. On top of this, I accidentally skipped breakfast to try and catch an extra 30 minutes of sleep and my stomach is punishing me for doing so. In the past three days, I’ve attempted to sleep […]

MOVIE REVIEW: ‘It’ has every element of great modern horror boiled down to single film

I’m not afraid of clowns, really. Sure, they’re a little unsettling, but they’ve never outright scared me. So I never really got the appeal around the 1990 mini-series “It” when I was a child. I got that it was about a clown that terrorized children, but I never understood why that was supposed to scare […]
