    The social murder of  Caroline Flack

    The social murder of Caroline Flack

    Sun kissed tanned skin, beach blond hair and a big smile on her face - that the way the public new Caroline Flack. Over the last years, she presented some of the biggest TV shows in Britain. She made us laugh, she made us cry, and we loved her for being the way she was. Caroline Flack didn't pretend to be perfect and spoke openly about her mental health issues. We, as members of the ordinary public, realised that more money in your bank account does not mean you are happier. It was easy to identify with her personality, and we could relate to her problems. Caroline felt real, not fake.

    I Saw "Sonic the Hedgehog" and You Should Too

    When I was younger, one of my favorite toys had to be my GameCube. I had Fire Emblem, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, and of course Super Smash Bros. I also had a bunch of Sonic the Hedgehog games. Sonic Heroes and Sonic Adventure 2 were two of my favorite games ever. I’d beaten both of them multiple times, and still replayed them frequently. I’ve always really loved Sonic.

    Sonic the Hedgehog

    As a kid, I spent many a rainy-day playing Sonic on my big blue Sega Game Gear, but other than my childhood Sonic days I really didn't spend much time with the classic video game. So, I wouldn't consider myself a die-hard fan. With that being said, I think we all remember seeing the first trailer for the then-upcoming Sonic film and collectively cringed over the bizarre look of our beloved space hog. Luckily the CGI team heard our cries and retreated to the drawing board to revive Sonic's design. Well done and thank you!! I think without a doubt if they had stayed with their first design, the movie would've been unwatchable. Check out the comparison below.

    Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy

    Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy

    I like to call this article “the obvious Harley Quinn movie we should be getting but DC doesn’t have the common sense or the balls”... DC who has been on shaky ground since the conclusion of the Dark Knight series has had very few victories and even more hastily thrown together flops. Among the greatest of their achievements is Wonder Woman, their highest grossing movie since the previously noted conclusion, AND one of the highest grossing origin films of all time. Yet it seems even with that DC has little faith in their women considering the entire lack of marketing for Birds of Prey, a movie I wanted so badly to be excited for, but when I learned that they were not including Poison Ivy (which is the only way tying the Birds of Prey to Harley Quinn would have made the least bit of sense) I started to lose all hope. One of the most well known DC team-ups, one of the most well known DC relationships, THE most stable, consistent and loving DC relationship, Harley Quinn and Poison Ivy.

    Nighthawks, by Edward Hopper

    Nighthawks, by Edward Hopper

    Edward Hopper (1882-1967) was a pioneer of the modern realism movement in the United States. During a long career as an artist, Hopper had known both depression and success, and “Nighthawks”, painted in 1942, dates from one of his more productive periods when he was financially secure, in good health, and untroubled in his personal life.

    The Evolution of Jason Bateman

    The Evolution of Jason Bateman

    He's been there, he's done that. But Jason Bateman's body of work stretches far and wide, and it's only improving. Whether you know him from Little House on the Prairie and Silver Spoons, or Arrested Development and Horrible Bosses, or from his more recent and dramatic work. Chances are, you've seen him in a series or movie. His deadpan humor and insanely well attained "poker face" make him one of my favorite actors. His latest endeavor as one of the directors and starring as Terry Maitland in the new HBO crime/drama/thriller series The Outsider, made me want to re-examine my appreciation for this beloved actor and creator.

    To Marvel and DC: Superhero Cinema needs reinventing

    To Marvel and DC: Superhero Cinema needs reinventing

    Superhero Cinema is undoubtedly one of the most popular film genres today, with both Marvel and DC producing many billion dollar blockbusters. One of the films in the catalogue, you must certainly know, became the highest grossing film of all time. So, what’s my problem? No, I’m not obsessed with Scorsese, and the prolixity of his films. I don’t think superhero movies are like ‘amusement parks’. I actually think they’re brilliant. So, again, what’s my problem? It’s what I like to call, ‘Hollywood Syndrome’: the habit of retreading old ground over and over again, with sequels, spin-offs, and reboots.

    Dangerous Curves Ahead!

    With the rise of the internet, many comic book companies have had to step up their game to bring readers a superior product. Fans can now find most of their favorite books online to read at their leisure and for free. With websites such as 'Read Comics Online' the industry is bound to take a massive hit financially. Fans can now literally read entire series from their computer or laptop without financial detriment. Yet it was a great comic book writer/artist who once likened holding a comic book similar to holding a pair of boobs; he stated 'they're always nice to look at but it's always good to feel one in your hands.'

    Cosplay Conventions Should Be All About Fun and Games.

    As a long time cosplayer, I have found it extremely aggravating when people want to cause trouble and drama at conventions. I have seen way too much of it and quite frankly, I am sick of it. My friends and I are in the agreement that these conventions should be our escape from reality.

    #29DaysofBlackCosplay

    #29DaysofBlackCosplay

    Greetings, Vocal readers. The month of February has arrived and it's not only Black History Month, but it's also a month celebrating cosplayers of color. Since 2020 is a leap year, black cosplayers have an extra day in the month of February to share their cosplays to everyone on social media. A year ago, I wrote an article about the hashtag #28daysofblackcosplay and asked a few cosplayers what it meant to be a cosplayer of color. I took part in that hashtag and posted my own cosplay pics. In case you're unfamiliar with that hashtag, it was started by a woman named Chaka Cumberbatch, also known as Princess Mentality Cosplay. It's basically when black cosplayers share a pic of their cosplay each day to their followers. At the time I wrote that article around this time in 2019, #28daysofblackcosplay had over 25,000 posts on Instagram. As of this article, #29daysofblackcosplay has over 1,000 posts on Instagram. Representation matters, because I believe that we don't get a lot of recognition and props for our cosplays. While you may have a bunch of positive comments on your cosplay, there are others who want to tear you down and make racist comments. If you're a black cosplayer, you've probably heard comments like these from others such as the following:

    If “The Purge” Was Real, Would You Participate?

    In disclosure, I love “The Purge” films. Each and every one. I deviate from the opinions of those who believe they are simply B-movie fodder for the wish-fulfillment set, and hold the opinion that the politics in these films are acutely well-informed and, unfortunately, not all that far from reality … which makes them, and the current USA Network television series spinoff (though I personally far prefer the films), all the more effective.

    A Filmmaker’s Guide to the 19th Century Novel (Pt. 3)

    Welcome back! If you haven’t read the previous section on our focus study of Frankenstein then you probably want to before referring to this particular section. If, however, you feel completely clear about that, then let’s carry on into our focus on three very different adaptations of Frankenstein by Mary Shelley. We will be looking at: the 2015 film entitled Victor Frankenstein, which pays close attention to some of the events in the book, and uses the same atmosphere. The next film we will look at is the famed Rocky Horror Picture Show, which takes concepts from the book, and changes the ideas surrounding it, including genre and character. The final adaptation we will concentrate on is characteristic adaptation, which we will find in the MCU character of Iron Man as Victor Frankenstein.

    Favorite Easter Eggs in ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’

    Favorite Easter Eggs in ‘Sonic the Hedgehog’

    While almost everyone was giving their significant others flowers and candy on Valentine’s Day, yours truly saw an amazing movie. A movie that I and everyone else have been talking about for months. That movie was Sonic the Hedgehog. As of this article, it topped the box office and made $57 million dollars and $100 million worldwide, marking the largest showing for a video game adaption and surpassing Detective Pikachu, which grossed $54.3 million last year. It's expected to earn between $68-$70 million through President's Day. Movies based of off video games tend to be epic fails or flops, but Sonic proved critics wrong and if it weren't for the redesign of the titular character, the movie would have not had earnings like these.

    Personal Shopper: The Weird Indie

    I had seen a reference to Personal Shopper and I had to look up what exactly this film was. I've never had much on an interest in Kristen Stewart before and after the Twilight phenomenon. I read that this was a movie worth being a prolific acting achievement for Kristen Stewart in her post-Twilight career. I had avoided it for a while til I was in the mood to try it out. Little did I know it was going to be a very bizarre plot for this indie movie.

    When I think of being a kid back in the late 90s, I think of things like Velcro shoes and matching Reebok tracksuits. But I also think of things like VCR and the beloved Blockbuster Video stores. Yeah, that's right. That really did happen. And what a beautiful time that was. You know, before the whole digital era came marching along and destroyed it all that is. That's sort of when we all became these fat lazy bastards who can't so much as pick up a remote without sighing in disbelief.
