She doesn't baby the audience by dumbing down the plot, which is something I always appreciate. Then Hollywood came along and made a ...

Actually, not only did it meet the stand...

This year, we have received and will receive sequels to some of our favorite movies of all time, from “Star Wars: Episode VII” to “Jurassic World.” We eagerly and somewhat nervously anticipate these sequels, afraid that they could suck. I think it’s safe to say that no sequel this year will ...

Panic! at the Disco’s new song, “Victorious”, gives me a nostalgic feeling to my middle school years when I would blast them through the house at full volume. It makes me feel edgy and it’s perfect for making you feel like you can do anything. If I were to listen to this while walking down the...
