Girls: “Triggering”

Girls: “Triggering”

One of the best aspects of Girls is how true it rings to modern American life, even if only for a particular niche of society—in this case, four 20-something girls trying to figure out the direction of their lives in NYC. Over the past three seasons, we have seen Hannah, Marnie, Jessa, and Shoshanna grow and learn from their experiences, for better or for worse. Lena Dunham has admitted that many aspects of the show are autobiographical in nature, and given the recent criticism surrounding her autobiography, Not That Kind of Girl, this episode of Girls seems to be a spot-on depiction of this—although it was entirely...

Otherwise, sit back and enjoy some of our most talented writers making their case for which...

Movie Review: Blended

Movie Review: Blended

There was a time in the mid 2000’s when it looked like Adam Sandler was completely reinventing his career. Films like Punch Drunk Love, Reign Over Me, and Spanglish showed the actor reaching for more deeper dramatic roles. In 2009’s Funny People he even took a shot at himself, parodying the endless stream of nonsensical comedies he found himself starring in over the years. Unfortunately in recent years he has gone back to the well, and given up this new direction. In the modern age Adam Sandler is much more akin to the Ernest movie’s of the 90’s. Grown Up‘s is his version of Ernest Goes To Camp, and his latest...

Looking kicked off its second season with a lively and dream-like premiere episode, as Patrick, Dom, and Agustin headed to the woods for a quiet getaway turned LGBT midnight rave filled with sex, drugs, dancing, and skinny-dipping.

TOGETHERNESS Series Premiere: “Family Day”

TOGETHERNESS Series Premiere: “Family Day”

It seems difficult to really judge a show just based off of a series premiere episode. That first episode is designed to get audiences familiar with the plot, the characters, and the tone of the show. Any real judgment of the characters and the story arc they are contained in cannot be truly evaluated until a viewer is settled into the rhythm of the show. After a few are watched then you can see if indeed there is even a consistent rhythm and tone or any plausible and pleasurable developments. So what can be said about TOGETHERNESS after episode one? Let’s break it down and see. First, is the basic construct of the show. HBO and all...

Girls Season 4 Premiere: “Iowa”

Girls Season 4 Premiere: “Iowa”

The Girls are back! And the Season 4 premiere begins with a strikingly familiar establishing shot of Hannah and her parents at dinner, alike to that of the Season 1 Premiere. Hannah may have gotten into graduate school, but certainly not much has changed, with her irritating mother telling her that she “doesn’t need” an extra order of French fries. Right when Hannah seems to be addressing the financial tension that she has had with her parents (in the same restaurant that Hannah received the news that she would be cut off financially) Adam comes storming in late, with a toast to Hannah’s strange and unpredictable future- “All we...

Who’s Your Daddy, Jon Snow?

Who’s Your Daddy, Jon Snow?

Spoiler Alert: This article relies heavily on information in the books and speculates on the future of the series.  Tread lightly. I love conspiracy theories.  Roswell, Area 51, Bigfoot, the Lochness monster.  But there are theories I love even more than aliens… book theories.  I know, call me a nerd, but I love a good fan theory about book characters.   One recently that has grabbed my attention is the questionable parentage of Jon Snow.  Which has been flying around the internet like a pissed off dragon. The theory itself isn’t new, but it’s been gaining attention as the series becomes more and more popular.  So while...

We Return to SILICON VALLEY on 04.12.15

SILICON VALLEY returns for its ten-episode second season SUNDAY, APRIL 12 at 10:00pm. Mike Judge (Office Space, King of the Hill) brings his irreverent brand of humor once again to HBO in this Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated comedy series, which looks at the modern-day epicenter of the high-tech gold rush, where the people most qualified to succeed are the least capable of handling success. You remember all about this one, right? Richard Hendricks is sitting on a cool unique music app called “Pied Piper” while at a company called Hooli. It is a hot concept that rival honchos want a piece of and Hendricks has a choice to make. He...
