A Not-So-Definitive Ranking of Kanye’s Cover Art

A Not-So-Definitive Ranking of Kanye’s Cover Art

When The Life of Pablo was released, I came across this tweet linking Kanye’s previous three albums to the three phases of Pablo Picasso’s artwork, which might’ve been a stretch, but definitely resonated with the singer’s ability to blend the visual with the musical. One of the most important aspects of Kanye’s art is the…

Trailer Takes: Ghost in the Shell, Song to Song, and The House

Ghost in the Shell, Trailer #2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sEDctELIm3I Eman: From the get-go, I’m a pretty big fan of the original Ghost in the Shell. I haven’t delved into the annals of anime to that much of an extent, but 1995’s Ghost in the Shell is probably one of my favorite animated films in general. That being said, this live action…

We Are Now Entering <i>The Twilight Zone</i>

We Are Now Entering The Twilight Zone

Good horror is hard to come by nowadays, either because the plots are unoriginal or the filming is focused on gruesome, bloody imagery. Shaking our heads in disappointment at the present state of horror, we must turn to the classics. Rod Sterling’s The Twilight Zone (1959-1964) is an iconic 20th century television series that features…

<i>Brokeback Mountain</i> Is More Than Just The “Gay Cowboy Movie”

Brokeback Mountain Is More Than Just The “Gay Cowboy Movie”

Many are introduced to Ang Lee’s 2005 masterpiece as the “Gay Cowboy Movie,” and that description is a cruel oversimplification. Brokeback Mountain is an epic of universal love. Besides being a film that brilliantly displays beautiful landscapes, boasts a director’s mastery in cinematic composition, and offers one of cinema’s all-time great performances in Heath Ledger’s…

Ballet Documentaries Celebrate Passion and Life

Ballet Documentaries Celebrate Passion and Life

Dance is making a dazzling comeback in American popular culture.  La La Land, for example, incorporates infectious tap numbers that remind us of beloved movie musicals like Singin’ in the Rain.  In these types of movies, though, dance is just one component that complements the singing and acting executed by performers.  In other cases, dance…

The Weekly List: Post-Valentine’s Day

The Weekly List: Post-Valentine’s Day

Post-Valentine’s Day angst is real. Everyone is in love and happy and goes out to nice Italian restaurants and it makes me sad. So here are some songs about when love isn’t perfect, because it’s not, and also all love songs are trash. Is it cliché for me to make a playlist of sad songs?…

A Case for the Classics: <i>City Lights</i>

A Case for the Classics: City Lights

In City Lights (1931), one of Charlie Chaplin’s most celebrated films, the Little Tramp does what he does best: finds himself in ridiculous situations. The plots of Chaplin films are hardly essential; his films are watched for their slapstick humor and the funny, familiar face of the lovable Little Tramp. In City Lights the Tramp…

Trailer Takes: Superbowl TV Spot Edition

Baywatch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OKgkiiprtKw Eman: A large portion of this movie was filmed in my hometown. I even visited the set with my friends a couple of times between classes and eventually made it onto The Rock’s Instagram. So, of course, I have some bias towards Baywatch. Unfortunately, or perhaps thankfully, that bias was deflated by this…
