Did Moonlight Deserve to Win Best Picture?
Let's talk about Moonlight. In all honesty, this is a movie's movie. How? Well.... Firstly, The fact that this is an indie movie is already quite a giveaway, I mean to make a movie on little money, little production and little help, is no small feat. We have to understand that movies are the evolution of plays. And this movie certainly has all the makings of both a play and a movie.
Movie Review - Logan
Movie Review - Logan "Logan, you still have time." Regardless of size (too tall) or not being ridiculously costumed in yellow spandex, I knew at a very specific moment that Hugh Jackman was and is, our Wolverine. It came during my first ever viewing of 2000's X-Men at the theaters. And it wasn't during some barbaric slice'em and dice'em battle scene. It came from a quiet moment when Logan meets the young stowaway Rogue (Anna Paquin, True Blood), and she asks him, "Does it hurt?" while the camera pans up from his knuckles to his face. He quietly replies, "Every time." That subtle little moment told me that one of my favorite Marvel characters, was in good hands. Hugh brought not only ferocity to the role, but he also gave heart to a character with such a rough demeanor. And not once has Jackman ever let us down, even when the ship was collapsing all around him (X-Men: The Last Stand, X-Men Origins: Wolverine). If this last film truly is just that, then whoever they try to replace him with, has some mighty big claws to fill.

'The Kids' Explores The Real World Of Skateboarding Culture In 1995 Film 'Kids'
Larry Clark’s Kids and the tsunami of prepubescent decadence that plays out hasn’t gotten any easier to watch since premiering in 1995. Encompassing the sexual depravity, Telly’s HIV positive pursuit of any virgin he can bed practically smothers the viewer and demands whether such a mindset actually prevailed amongst the Washington Square Skateboarding scene it was based.
False Idols: Be Careful Who You Make the Next Kim Kardashian
I admit that I am part of the problem when it comes to the entertainment news cycle because it's my job. Sometimes I get assigned articles I don't want to write, but I have to — Kim Kardashian, the Duggars or the Sister Wives come to mind. However, we all have a choice to stop the constant assault of information that comes with every Instagram post Kylie Jenner publishes.

Fire Walk With Me: The Dark Heart of Twin Peaks
Twin Peaks is a TV show famous for many things; Special Agent Cooper and his love of black coffee and cherry pie, eccentric towns people including a lady who carries and communicates with a wooden log, a love of visual non sequiturs and jazz, and being a melding of almost every popular drama genre and it's conventions. Possibly it's most discussed features are its supernatural elements, most frightfully embodied by the demonic entity Killer BOB. Said to be from a alternate dimension of evil known as The Black Lodge, BOB possesses human souls and inhabits their bodies to commit acts of rape and murder, seemingly feeding off the pain, fear and sorrow he creates. It's said that BOB has possessed local lawyer Leland Palmer, and while under his control, had Leland commit the multiple acts of murder; in one scene BOB takes full control, even speaking as himself through Leland. This is backed up by MIKE, another spirit who possesses travelling shoe salesman Philip Gerard, who seems to confirm their status as demons that inhabit people. While the presentation of these elements is visually surreal and oblique, and multiple spiritual and logical suppositions are discussed within the show, the commonly accepted interpretation of BOB is a literal one; he may not be from our plane of existence, but he does exist.
Me, My Dad and 'Late Night with David Letterman'
Maybe David Letterman is following the comedic party line by deferring all praise but his farewell only fuels my suspicion that he has no idea how much he means to us out here who live for late night talk shows. The laughter a given, its delivery amounts to an incalculable debt that I wish I could pay in full to ease the self-doubt and diminish the burden he seems to carry.
Why I Love Animal Crossing
The Nintendo Switch launched on 3rd March 2017, ushering a new start and era for Nintendo. Out of all their IP's (Intellectual Property) Animal Crossing is one of the safest bets to make a return. Coupled with the fact that we've been without a new title since 2013 it's about time Animal Crossing makes a comeback. It's a franchise that sells by the bucket-loads and has become one of Nintendo's flagship franchises in breaking the so called mold between the hobbyist gamer and the casual gamer. But why do I and others love it so much? Well that's what I'm here to talk about, though I hopefully won't ramble on as much as Blathers.
