The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Review by Chloe James

I have to admit, I have a huge place in my heart for the third film of any movie trilogy. There is just something so satisfying to me about the promise of ending a story (whether happy or sad) that I spent two previous films engrossing myself into. Empire Strikes Back may have been critically the “best” …

Over the Garden Wall Review by Chloe James

The air has gotten cold and I, in turn, have caught one. True to the title of my blog, in my time of pathetic childlike weaknesses, I will always turn to my favorite childhood cartoons for comfort.  But alas, I have a sacred duty too keep the public informed about new developments in the world …

Snow Like Ashes Review by Bekah Stepanian

When there are only 8 free survivors living after their nation was destroyed, I don’t think it matters that an orphan and the supposed future king are in love.  I mean, honestly, who is to forbid it because there positions in society are too far socially?  There are 6 people left with any say in …

Babadooke Review: The Horror Within our Own Lives by David Tuck

Be prepared to think when watching the Babadook. If you’re like me and go into the film with a mind tuned specifically for horror, you will be one of the droves to miss the beauty of this movie and in turn award it a negative review. Although, it is under the genre, rookie director Jennifer …

What We Like and What We Don’t Like about Mockingjay Part 1 by Bekah Stepanian

Before I go on to review the movie I’d like to note that I have only read the first book in the series.  There was nothing from the first book that kept me interested enough to go on and read the last two.  The only thing that led into the sequel was the decision Katniss …

Relationships in the Nerd Universe: This week on Arrow, Castle, and Forever by Allison Costa

  Well this coming week many shows are taking time off for the holidays and I, for one, am grateful because some of my less addictive series—Scorpion, Gotham and Person of Interest—I have fallen behind on and am hoping to catch up and give you the 411 after the break! For now let’s talk about …

In Case You’re Wondering, Bill Murray is the Man by Marcus Blake

  He’s the ultimate funnyman. He can actually play golf and bowl well.  He doesn’t have an agent, just an 800 number where you can call and pitch him movie ideas. And his pop culture status is God Like, probably making him the coolest man alive. If somebody has to be the man then Bill …

THIS WEEK ON: Arrow, The Flash, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. , Castle, and Forever.

“Parallel Universes, Dominatrix and Human Bombs Oh My!”   Somehow Wednesday has snuck up on me and the week is half over!  This week started off with a truly “nerdy” episode of Castle as Richard was supposedly transferred to a parallel universe, through an ancient Incan artifact, a universe in which he and Beckett never …

Interstellar Review by Chloe James

How can I critically quantify Christopher Nolan’s space epic, Interstellar? Much like the subject matter it covers, the film itself is an anomaly.  The film is cold, yet emotional.  It is based on quantum science theory, yet reaches farther beyond reality than some pure fantasies.  The first night I saw it, I had so many …

Before I Go to Sleep Review by Alex Moore

Where was film and story-telling 15 years ago? When did it all change? Actually, M. Night Shayamalan’s “The Sixth Sense” was not the first to sweep us off our feet with an earth-shattering finish like the one it possesses, but it seemingly changed the mindset and expectations of the masses going into the movie theaters …
