The Laundromat is a Bad Copy of The Big Short

When The Big Short  was released in 2015, it should not have worked nearly as well as it did. It was trying to explain a complex issue within the constraints of a two hour movie while still providing an interesting narrative to keep the audience from getting bored. It had way too many storylines, most…

Unbelievable: A Netflix Must Watch

Content Warning: This article discusses sexual assault   As of late, believability has become quite the hot topic. In the era of fake news, the public is constantly given minimum facts and expected to follow the rhetoric of mainstream media.

In a season premiere that began with a truly absurd sequence featuring the judges and hosts dressed as characters from the Wizard of Oz (1939) (including Paul Hollywood aptly costumed as the heartless Tin Man), and ended with the characteristic wholesome group hug given to the contestant going home, five bakers emerged from the rest…

Star Wars IX: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGAupmtXcMM Jake: Remember when we were supposed to let the past die, kill it if we had to? Yeah, me neither, because apparently nothing’s ever really gone. This whole trilogy has been a mess of half finished plotlines, “subversive” storytelling that subverts only our expectations that a Star Wars movie will be…
