Following a Streak of Successful Rom-Coms, Netflix Gets Cocky and Falls Flat with Sierra Burgess is a Loser

WARNING: contains spoilers, sorry!! I’m going to be honest with you, I watched Sierra Burgess is a Loser (2018) purely to see my one true love, Noah Centineo.

For the first time in almost two decades, when Augusta National opens its gates to the top golfers in the world, the best golfer in the world will be absent.

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…

Did the Yankees just lose? We don’t have the highest payroll? As the era of the Core-Four comes to a close, the Yankees appear to be sinking into mediocrity. This is a shocking sight for those of us born in the ‘90s who enjoyed five World Series championships and a run of constant relevancy. Had…

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.

Who ever thought Ultimate Frisbee would enter the big leagues? A few years ago, it was questioned whether it should even be considered a sport.

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…

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…
