Aquaman‘s Important Contribution to Superhero Diversity

There is an alarming amount of hate on the Internet for Aquaman (2018). Luckily, I’m here to explain what the haters are missing. The latest installment in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) is a big departure from the too-serious films of Zack Snyder, the most recent being the ill-received Justice League (2017). Director James Wan,...

, and Trailer Takes: Men in Black: International, Under the Eiffel Tower, and The Upside

Men in Black: International : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0QA4g17HtNY Dajour: I’ve never seen a Men in Black film in its entirety, which is something I hope to change in the future—just not starting with this film. It didn’t look like absolute trash to me, but something about it just seemed… rehashed. I got a been there, done that...

Some Rap Songs – Hope Amidst Grief

I listened to Earl Sweatshirt’s Doris (2013) for the first time during my junior year of high school. I had just moved from the coast of South Texas to Arizona. I was about two months into the school year and living in a bedroom with my younger brother, doing marching band in triple-digit weather four...

Kevin Durant is the real deal

Kevin Durant is the real deal

The ESPN Box Score merely says, “0:01, 109-111, Kevin Durant makes 12-foot two point shot.” Your eyes see a lanky swingman taking a pull-up fade-away jumper over 3 defenders with menacing ease. Just like that, the Oklahoma City Thunder have beaten the Atlanta Hawks and won their eighth straight game. The reason watching Kevin Durant…

Although I call myself the greatest Jeremy Lin fan in the world, I regret to say that I did not take the hour and a half trip to see his documentary, Linsanity, when it debuted in October 4, 2013. My pre-ordered copy of the movie, however, arrived during the weekend so I finally had the…

Pro Bowl or No Bowl? What to do before next year

I made it through watching almost the full first half of the NFL’s Pro Bowl this year, which is an improvement upon last year’s viewing. I made a point to give the new format of the game a chance and committed myself to paying attention to the so-called “improvements” the league claimed it had made….

It’s hard not to be excited for the Sochi Winter Olympics, now just a few short weeks away. Spectators the world over will be wowed by breath-taking feats of athleticism in ski slalom, snowboard cross, bobsleigh (feel the rhythm, feel the rhyme…), and, of course, this year’s controversial – not to mention verbose – new…

I don’t get it. I just don’t freakin’ get it. I understand why footballers take what they can get in terms of career advancement, and I understand that a footballer only has so many good years in his legs, but, for the life of me, I just cannot understand why a slightly underrated winger would…

The Conference Championships are over and now only two teams are left standing: The Denver Broncos and the Seattle Seahawks. Before the season, this was an extremely popular Super Bowl pick, as both teams seemed poised to go all the way in the ‘sophomore’ campaigns of each of their very talented quarterbacks. Both teams were…

I am in no way a Boston sports fan. Regardless of the sports season, I actually secretly hope that Boston teams fail in their pursuit of a championship. Super Bowl, World Series, Finals, Stanley Cup—doesn’t matter to me. I think my grudge against Boston sports teams originated from too many Angel losses to those damn…

I thought it would be interesting to imagine how the New York Knicks would behave if they celebrated Christmas, family-style. The setting is Mike Woodson’s house. Woodson sits in a bathrobe, bleary-eyed, dreading the arrival of the various members of his team in a few hours. Suddenly, the doorbell rings. Woodson walks to the door…
