Indie director Zach Braff, better known as the dreamy doctor J.D. from “Scrubs,” has delivered his third feature film, and this time there’s nothing indie about it. Although the family-friendly feel-good comedy is highly entertaining, it misses the edginess seen in his previous work. Three senior citizens, Joe...

NOTE: Article may contain spoilers On what would have been Donald Barthelme’s 86th birthday, Catastrophic Theater played host to the world premiere of his novella “Snow White’s” adaptation to the stage. Director Greg Dean said that this was a passion project of his. Not only did he finish the script that Barthelme...

Kendrick Lamar released his highly anticipated third studio album this past Good Friday. Before everyone gets upset, I’m not counting “Untitled Unmastered.” Lamar is one of the few artists that causes massive hype whenever he drops something, yet no one knows where he’s going to go next. This 14-track record is a...

Photo by Julie Araica / Cooglife In a sea filled with hundreds of comic, game, movie and anime characters — and more than an acceptable amount of Kiritos — there was me, dressed in nothing more than a t-shirt and jeans with a camera in hand.   This year was my first year attending Anime Matsuri out of cosplay. I went...

For more of my reviews, visit my blog As the Book Ends .I received an advanced reading copy in exchange for an honest review. My best friend has this saying anytime we go out to eat and the food didn’t completely knock our socks off, but wasn’t inedible, he looks up at me and says, “It’ll make a turd.” Certainly an...

“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. Then she meets BV and falls in love, meanwhile Cook starts dating Rhonda and marries her. At the same time, BV and Faye...

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. Somehow, the ending of that series soured me and gave me selective memory. Although I understood why Roth...

I received an Advanced Reading Copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. My entire month was made on March 30, 2017 at approximately 2:40 p.m. Sometimes, as a book reviewer, you just have to be a little bit brave. A few months ago, Christina Lauren responded on Twitter to one of my reviews. I then boldly...
