“Is that a monkey?” As several Vietnam-era helicopters fly over the eponymous island, a 100-foot tall silhouette appears against the backdrop of a setting sun. One of the characters in the helicopters utters the insightful question written above. The towering behemoth in front of the choppers is none other than King Kong, no longer a…

The lights go down. The text appears on the screen. “A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away….” And then: a cut to a shot of space with a loud, jarring musical chord in the background. Jarring is the best word to describe the opening to Rogue One. It feels odd to see…

When Kehoe Field closed, it was a long time coming. The playing space was notorious for its rough conditions, and Georgetown deemed it unsafe for practice conditions.

Science Fiction at the Oscars

Two years ago, I wrote a very passionate piece about why I believed that Interstellar should have been nominated for Best Picture. Today, I absolutely stand by that opinion. But instead of Nolan’s magnum opus, it is the treatment of Arrival that has me most angry at the Academy. Although the Oscar winners have not…

The name “Mo Lewis” probably doesn’t mean much to the average sports fan. Indeed, even as a Jets fan, I had to Google his name at his first mention because he is not cemented in Jets lore as an all-star player. Once I Googled his name, though, I quickly realized why he will forever live…
