“The Disaster Artist” When a small movie called “The Room” hit two theaters in the Los Angeles area in 2003, no one knew what to do with the film or Tommy Wiseau, its mysterious director. Advertised as a drama, the movie seemed to ignore every fundamental rule of filmmaking. It turned into a hilarious reel of unrelated,...

A list of this year’s SXSW films I believe to be the most watchable and why. Song to Song (5/10) Faye, a musician we never see making music, goes out with Cook, a music mogul, to boost her career.

NOTE: Article may contain spoilers George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” is not one of those stories you easily forget. I read it back in 8th grade and it still makes me uncomfortable. That being said, I had high expectations for the School of Theatre and Dance’s production at the Wortham Theatre. Though the play did have its...

When the final book in the Divergent trilogy was released four years ago, I remember being incredibly upset with the way it ended. Divergent was one of the books that made me fall in love with the dystopian genre.

Although both Marvel and D.C have superheroes who have been openly gay and bisexual, none of them have made it to the big screen. The superheroes who are part of the LGBT community in the comics have been depicted as cis-gendered...

Last week Netflix released the trailer for their Adam-Wingard-directed adaptation of “Death Note.” Almost immediately they found themselves again facing accusations of Whitewashing over their casting of Natt Wolff as the lead character, Light. The controversy technically started back in 2015. American-Asian actor Edward...

Without fail, each Halloween for three Halloweens in a row I would pull out my yellow, itchy, tight polyester gown from my family’s addict, emblazoned with a kitsch little badge of my favorite Disney princess in the dead center, with this dress I was ready to take on the world, or at least all of my neighbors’ candy,...

Writer, comedian and now director, Jordan Peele, shifted the genre of horror and pop culture as a whole for his directorial debut. While creating a horror sub-genre he also catered to a fan base that isn’t typically represented in horror films, unless they are subsequently dying first: the black guy. This type of...
