Girls Season 4 Teasers & Trailers: What’s Ahead?

Girls Season 4 Teasers & Trailers: What’s Ahead?

Update: A REAL trailer for premiere of Girls season 4 is up as well! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kB8y4Zp9UNc Now before we can delve into what is coming ahead for our favorite mid-20s Girls, let’s refresh on where we left them. Hannah and Adam had a fight (nothing new there) which leaves her torn on the precipice of a major life/career decision. Marnie was discovering Desi’s silver tongue…in her mouth. Wondering how Desi’s girlfriend feels about that?  Didn’t seem good.  Shoshanna didn’t graduate, found out Ray slept with Marnie, and desperately tried to get him back and failed. Poor Shosh.

Movie Review: Dallas Buyers Club

Movie Review: Dallas Buyers Club

Matthew McConaughey revitalized his career around 2012, and what a revitalization is has been. With his film Mud and HBO’s own True Detective, it appears the years of Matt doing crappy romantic comedies might be past us (I’m looking at you, Failure to Launch). In Dallas Buyers Club, McConaughey stars as Ron Woodruff, a rough around the edges electrician who likes drugs and promiscuous sex (a lot of promiscuous sex). After a workplace accident, Ron awakes in the hospital wherein he is told he has HIV. The time of the film is late 80s, when the knowledge of HIV and AIDS was growing as awareness of the disease spread. Feeling this...

The Evolution of Sansa Stark

The Evolution of Sansa Stark

If you ask people who their favorite female Stark is, most people will probably say Arya. She’s pretty cool. I mean, she runs around stabbing people and being a baby assassin. However, Sansa gets overlooked, consistently. From the beginning, she’s portrayed as the typical girly sister while Arya is the patriarchy-bucking sister. However while Arya is basically a missing child turned killer, Sansa’s character is evolving interestingly.               In the beginning, Sansa was the stereotypical female character. She thought only of her place among the court and her future with Joffrey as his betrothed...

Luke Grimes Refuses to Come Out of the Closet on True Blood

Luke Grimes Refuses to Come Out of the Closet on True Blood

True Blood is a show known for its controversial scenes, particularly in regards to sex. Being on a platform like HBO, this show is able to take risks in regards to sex and violence, as well as more progressive issues such as gay rights. Open sexuality has been apparent in the show from the beginning by featuring an openly gay character, Lafayette, and the sexual choices of vampires in bedding who they so desire, regardless of gender. One cast member allegedly couldn’t handle the sexual turn his character took, and chose to leave the show. I’m referring to Luke Grimes, who departed fairly quickly after only seven episodes on the...

“The Casual Vacancy” Dream Cast

“The Casual Vacancy” Dream Cast

The Casual Vacancy was J.K. Rowling’s first publication post-Potter, and it received mixed reviews. The story is set in an idyllic, English town that becomes entrenched in a squabble when a local councilman dies unexpectedly.  With his seat open, the town splits on one issue, and friends and neighbors turn against each other in an effort to find the seat filled by the “right” person.  Though slow-paced to me, I thought the book was an interesting dissection into the idea of inter-connectivity of people in a small town, and it features a wealth of fascinating characters. Rather like a recipe: take a small town and mix in a...
