Are remakes really that bad?

Are remakes really that bad?

By:

Every couple of years, there seems to be a rush of articles written about Hollywood’s remake culture, most recently brought on by the upcoming (and totally baffling) Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot, courtesy of Michael Bay. There’s always a great deal of lamenting the loss of originality in movies, pining for the good ol’ days…

Critical Voices: Tokyo Police Club, Forcefield

For Tokyo Police Club, the release of their third studio album, Forcefield, seems to mark their arrival as a truly established indie rock band. Though, by “truly established,” I mean, mainly, that people have finally stopped mistaking their band for a bunch of Japanese cops. Nevertheless, it’s the kind of place you reach artistically where…

Modern technology aids and amplifies our relationship to music. We can store, categorize, purchase, and exchange music. We can digitize our instruments and synthesize our voices. This new musical world provides us with a level of involvement and participation unseen before our time. And when I thought that I had seen it all—from YouTube mashups…

Despite last week’s snow and temperatures in the twenties, spring is finally arriving. What better way to celebrate than traveling to France? At the National Gallery, Jean Renoir and Vincent Van Gogh offer free round-trip tickets to Paris and Auvers.

"Flamingos."

Years and years of flamingos, there were no other things. And then, suddenly, all at once, for no discernible reason, during mid-afternoon (of all time for God’s sake), they stayed exactly as they had been.   Occasional head-wetting, toe shuffling, rufflings that could at their most intense be mis- construed as minor convulsions.   Photo: Pam…

The World’s Weirdest

The World’s Weirdest

Writer Paul Levitz’ and artist Diogenes Neves’s World’s Finest: Huntress and Power Girl Annual #1 is a weird comic. Not only is the basic premise hard for even the most knowledgeable of comic fans to swallow, but Levitz’s writing and characterization for characters like Supergirl and Wonder Woman are head-scratching.  Even the comic’s status as…

The Art of the Sentence

The Art of the Sentence

By:

How much weight can a single sentence have? Is there a formula or method for writing powerful sentences? Sentence (n.): A set of words that is complete in itself…conveying a statement, question, exclamation, or command. That definition takes care of the essentials, but how do you define an exceptional sentence?  I can’t give you a…

The novel thing about movies

The novel thing about movies

By:
03/29/2014

For about as long as there have been movies, people have been making books into movies. The urge makes sense, as many of humanity’s greatest stories had already been written down by the time motion pictures had emerged. Even today’s bestsellers, like The Hunger Games trilogy or Gone Girl, are being adapted into films. Because…
