Westworld: “The Well-Tempered Clavier”

Westworld: “The Well-Tempered Clavier”

It is impossible to disagree with the fact that every episode of Westworld thus far has been compellingly unique and brilliantly existential. We have experienced the sentient growth of (mainly) Dolores, Maeve, and now Bernard. “The Well-Tempered Clavier” is the series at its darkest, with much regard to Bernard and Ford. I’m feeling heavy Hannibal Lecter vibes being channeled by Anthony Hopkins into Ford, adding to his sociopathic persona. There are many angles and approaches to predict where Westworld goes from here, so let’s break it down into our main characters. Dolores Dolores has existed as our predominant protagonist in the...

Westworld: “Dissonance Theory”

Westworld: “Dissonance Theory”

In only four weeks, Westworld has proven itself to be an insanely captivating and unique experience. It may be argued it exists for a niche audience, but its originality and metaphorical implications are immense, and viewership is increasing drastically. Regardless of ratings—because HBO doesn’t keep shows on based on ratings anyway—Westworld’s charm and nihilism are delightful and undeniable. Forgive me if I get a bit too philosophical with you in my dissection of this week’s episode and the show in general, but with a series like Westworld, it is my hope you may greater appreciate the series from a different perspective. I’m...

Movie Review: Deadpool

Movie Review: Deadpool

Before going into my deep, longing love letter to Deadpool, let’s address the elephant in the room. The truth is, comic book movies aren’t memorable anymore. This year alone, we had four additional comic book films (Batman vs. Superman, Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, & Suicide Squad) and the upcoming Dr. Strange in November. As usual with big comic book years, it’s easy to get jaded expecting a string of superheroes that will probably take themselves too seriously. This is precisely why Deadpool is such an essential part of both comic book films and modern cinema—it turns the superhero genre on its head...

Game of Thrones: “No One”

Game of Thrones: “No One”

This week’s episode of Game of Thrones, like many this season thus far, has set the stage for the great battles to come. Yes, some ended quite anticlimactically, namely the siege at Riverrun, Arya versus the Waif, and even the highly anticipated “Cleganebowl” between The Mountain and The Hound, thanks to Tommen’s elimination of trial by combat. Still, we got a taste of the battle at Meereen this week, complete with fire-wielding catapults, and lest we forget the White Walkers ominously planning their attack in the backdrop. Here’s a breakdown of this week’s episode, “No One,” and how it will likely impact the schemes and...

Girls: “Hello Kitty”

Girls: “Hello Kitty”

  This past weekend’s episode of Girls found our favorite flawed females in yet another downward spiral of negative emotions and self-destruction—with the only exception being Marnie, who has grown in spectacular fashion as of late. Nothing can be said for Shosh, but we can imagine she’s living it up in Japan with Yoshi and her new gal pals. Here’s a breakdown of this week’s turmoil:   “Showing your vagina to your boss is not an okay thing to do!” Hannah’s downfall with Fran has been a long time coming this season. Her annoyance with him has become almost a chore to watch, snowballing from grammatical mistakes and...
