<em>Bridge of Spies</em> Finds Extra in the Ordinary

Bridge of Spies Finds Extra in the Ordinary


Although Bridge of Spies is set during the Cold War, it is a surprisingly timely film. Director Steven Spielberg’s new release repeatedly challenges the legal representation of enemy combatants, a question that America’s justice system has struggled with throughout its history—from John Adams representing the British soldiers responsible for the Boston Massacre to the rights…

Happy Back to The Future Day, McFly

Happy Back to The Future Day, McFly


Today, October 21st, 2015, is one of the most anticipated in film-geek history. It’s the day that Marty McFly and Doc Brown travelled to in the classic Robert Zemeckis film, Back to the Future.

NBC’s Hannibal  Will Be Missed


The idea of the show that is cancelled far too soon is not a new one. Television aficionados will point to shows such as Firefly, Twin Peaks, and Freaks and Geeks as prime examples of series that were terminated by studios before they were able to truly flourish. The latest show to suffer this treatment,…
