    MARVEL’S IRON FIST Recap: (S01E11) Lead Horse Back to Stable

    Iron Fist opens in an idyllic valley. It is a flashback. Danny (Finn Jones) lies unconscious in a trickling stream. He suddenly snaps back to reality, his fists flaring angrily. Davos (Sacha Dhawan) looks down at him, “You did it, Danny. The trial of Shou-Lau… You’re the Iron Fist!”. Danny suddenly returns to reality. He stands in a dingy bathroom, gingerly patching up a painful stab wound in his side. He’s jittery. While he works, he talks with Davos. They are on two separate wave-lengths. […]

    Fierce Ladies of The Golden Age: Mary Livingstone

Jack Benny, George Burns and Fred Allen were all made their names in the hey day of radio, before making the eventual jump to television. While the names of a number of these men have lived on through the decades, many had female companions and partners who stood out as strong, sassy and independent performers in their own right. These are the fierce leading ladies of radio. Jack Benny was […]

  • If You’re Not Listening, You Should Be: Iwan Rheon

    If You’re Not Listening, You Should Be: Iwan Rheon

    Embed from Getty Images As an actor, Iwan Rheon first rose to popularity with his star-making (though cringe inducing) turn as Ramsay Snow/Bolton on Game of Thrones. However, more seasoned streamers might also recognize the Welsh actor from his time on the E4 series Misfits, or from the ITV comedy series Vicious. While many know (and hate!) Ramsay Bolton, few are familiar with Iwan Rheon’s other life as a singer songwriter. If you’re not listening to Iwan Rheon, you should be. Iwan Rheon has been […]

    MARVEL’S IRON FIST RECAP: (S01E04) Eight Diagram Dragon Palm

Thus the drop is still painful, but a bit less bone crunching. Later, Danny wakes up inside Harold’s fortress. His head is pounding, but he’s generally okay. Ward (Tom Pelphrey) slowly enters, and the men look each other over. Their banter is understandably tense. […]

  • Marilyn Monroe in Don’t Bother to Knock

    Classic Film Through a Feminist Lens: DON’T BOTHER TO KNOCK

    Marilyn Monroe spent most of her short career playing a specific type of character. A darling of 1950s cinema, Monroe typically played showgirls, usually with varying amounts of gold-digging ditziness. Fairly early in her career, she broke from type in her portrayal of Nell the unhinged baby-sitter in Don’t Bother to Knock. The film is a tense noir thriller. Interestingly, the movie reflects not only the stereotypical gendered problems of the 1950s, but at the same time features an accurate depiction of the societal conflicts […]
