    FRONTIER Recap: (S01E01) A Kingdom Unto Itself

    Frontier opens on a caption: HBC OUTPOST- THE DISPUTED TERRITORY. It is late at night, and three British soldiers kneel on the ground, covered in their own blood. “Have mercy, please,” one of them says. Meanwhile, an imposing figure menacingly circles around them as we see flashes of a blade, “This is your own doing. This is not your land. You shouldn’t be here”. Suddenly, in rapid succession each of the men are killed, we’re talking almost Game of Thrones levels of violence here. As […]

    MY HERO ACADEMIA Recap: (S01E03) Roaring Muscles

    Izuku Midoriya has waited his entire life for someone to affirm his dream of becoming a hero, and here in this alley the person he admires most does exactly that. All Might has assessed Izuku’s potential and deems him worthy of inheriting the power of the greatest hero: One For All. The nature of All Might’s power is apparently a hotly debated and entirely uncertain topic. Everyone assumes it’s some sort of strength enhancement, but no one would guess that […]

  • Under the Yum Yum Tree

    Classic Film Through a Feminist Lens: UNDER THE YUM YUM TREE

    Under the Yum Yum Tree is one of many light sex comedies which came out of Hollywood in the early 1960s. The film starts strong; however, half way through it forgets what it is. In fact, the characters find themselves awkwardly shoehorned into the socially acceptable gender roles, and the film meanders into simple “rom com” territory. Under the Yum Yum Tree follows college students Robin (Carol Linley) and Dave (Dean Jones). Very much a serious and long-term couple, Robin won’t give into Dave’s pleas […]

  • RIP Miguel Ferrer

    RIP Miguel Ferrer

    I’d really hoped that 2017 would start fresh with some joy and happiness, but no such luck. Yesterday, actor Miguel Ferrer, passed away from throat cancer. He was one of my favorites and if you’re not sure who he is, you’d probably, at least, recognize him. He was in everything including Star Trek III: The Search For Spock, Robocop, guest appearances in CHiPs, Magnum, P.I., and my personal favorite, Twin Peaks. As FBI Agent, Albert Rosenthal, he stole the show. In the later part of his […]

    Karen Gillan’s Nebula May Have a Bigger Role in AVENGERS: INFINITY WAR

    We’ve recently learned that Karen Gillan will indeed be in Avengers: Infinity War, reprising her Guardians of the Galaxy role as Nebula. However, now, in an interview with Gillan, Hollywood Reporter, it seems as if she may have more to do in the film than any of us may have initially thought. Embed from Getty Images   As she told THR, “she’s making a cheeky appearance there. I don’t know how much I’m allowed to say, but I’m pretty happy […]

    FOUNDING FATHERS: Make America Fun Again (Please)

    If you are like me, you’re probably sick of the current state of the political landscape. It exhausts me. So why in the world would I be intrigued with a board game about the forming of the U.S. Constitution? Maybe it’s the remnants of my political science major bleeding through, hoping I’ll glimpse a clue of how we got where we are today. Maybe it’s a desire to return to a seemingly simpler time, where names like Franklin, Hamilton, and […]

    Tom Holland Reveals How the SPIDER-MAN: HOMECOMING Flash Thompson is Different

    One of Peter Parker’s most enduring enemies isn’t the Green Goblin or Sandman or Venom. One of his biggest antagonists is his high school bully, Flash Thompson. He was bullying “puny Parker” before he was Spider-Man and continued to do it well into college. He’s since become a bit of a hero himself, having lost his legs in war and then taking on the Venom symbiote to become Agent Venom, but his time as a tormentor in Parker’s life was […]

    FREQUENCY Recap: (S01E12) Harmonic

      We’re down to the last 2 episodes of the first season of Frequency. Last week was a doozy with Raimy facing some pretty severe consequences for the shooting death of Deacon Joe, but she was saved due to some wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey changes to her personal timeline. Frank was able to avoid some hot water himself after the car accident that freed Deacon Joe from the trunk of his car. Everyone got out of their messes, but unfortunately the Nightingale […]

    CBS Orders MISSION CONTROL Pilot from Author Andy Weir

    Embed from Getty Images I always have a hankering for a space adventure.  So, I was pretty excited to hear that, not only is Andy Weir writing a drama centered at NASA, but CBS ordered the pilot!  According to collectSPACE.com, CBS made the order for Mission Control on Tuesday. Weir is the author of the popular novel The Martian.  That book’s film adaptation, starring Matt Damon won a bunch of awards last year, and was one of my personal favorite movies […]

  • THE BIG BANG THEORY Recap: (S10E13) The Romance Recalibration

    THE BIG BANG THEORY Recap: (S10E13) The Romance Recalibration

    I have a variety of pet peeves about television– especially sitcoms. I hate seeing characters on long-running shows devolve into caricatures of themselves (like they did on Friends). I hate shows where so-called friends are constantly deceiving each other and then having their lies unravel in outrageous manners (i.e. the plot of every episode of Friends). And I hate when TV writers use adultery or the temptation of adultery as the go-to way to keep married characters interesting (you know– like on Friends). […]

    SUPERNATURAL Rewatch: (S01E16) Shadow

    Previously on Supernatural: After a brief detour to take on a family of cannibals, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are back in pursuit of their missing father. The episode opens in Chicago, as a young woman (Melanie Papalia) walks down the street. It’s late at night. As typically happens in a show like this, she turns down a dark alley. The street is dank and creepy, while steam pulsates from a near-by sewer grate. Suddenly, her iPod dies as an icy wind blows over her. Decidedly freaked out, […]

  • Two New LOGAN Trailers Give Us the Father/Daughter Relationship of Wolverine and X-23

    Two New LOGAN Trailers Give Us the Father/Daughter Relationship of Wolverine and X-23

    The new trailer for Logan, Fox Studio’s last Wolverine film starring Hugh Jackman, hit the internet this morning. With the first trailer, we got an idea of the somewhat somber, dramatic and tragic tone of this film. Logan and the Professor (Patrick Stewart) have lost a lot in their day; now they’re hiding out and, essentially, just waiting to die in peace. However, this trailer is hyper-focused on the character of the feral Laura Kinney (Dafne Keen) and the father-daughter […]
