'Paddington 2' Is the True Best Picture of 2018
Anyone who has kept up with pop culture this year has probably heard a lot of buzz about The Shape of Water, Dunkirk, Lady Bird, etc., but where is the talk about Paddington 2? My 17-year-old brother, an avid movie-theatre-goer, chose to see the film that follows everyone's favorite red-hatted bear during its opening week in the U.S.
Why 'The Room' Is the Weirdest, But Most Watchable Movie I've Ever Seen
I did not watch The Room! It's not true! It's bulls**t! I did not watch it! I did naaaahhhhhht....okay, fine, I did. Back in 2003, Tommy Wiseau wrote, directed, produced, and starred in his own independent film, The Room. And this film has become more relevant recently as a result of the James Franco film, The Disaster Artist, which shows the story of the film being made.
Bury Your Gays
Since the dawn on time, mankind has been a race of storytellers. We have a rich history of oral storytelling that dates back to the Stone Age, and the communication of stories and history through cave paintings. The desire to expand our imagination through the construction of fictional worlds and characters continues to be of huge societal significance in an era of self-reflexive, post-modern media.
Filmmaking Advice From a Non-Professional
I'm a young filmmaker/photographer and I aim to, one day, make a living from doing what I love, but I'm not quite there yet. I started making "films" about four years ago—of a very low production value and just for fun. It gripped me and fueled a passion I never knew I had.
Blood Is Thicker Than Water: Could The DCEU's 'Aquaman' Be Related To Poseidon?
Last year brought us the second live-action appearance of the King from (literally) down under, Aquaman. His existence in the DCEU has already been praised by fans, furthering the rapturous acclaim with his "surf board" riding scene in Justice League. Well, even with his brief appearances, we still don't know much about the hero, and could possibly have to wait for his solo film just like Wonder Woman.
9 of Phineas and Ferb's Most Eye-Sweating Moments
Before I appreciated Phineas and Ferb, I had a huge burning indifference for the show. Ironically, now I'm a huge fan. The Last Day of Summer was the final episode to tie up the whole series, and I know most of us sobbed while watching that. However there was one more special episode - and we can say that it's truly finished after watching the O.W.C.A. Files, and that's that. I bet some of us sweat through our eyes after that special.
Opera's Race Problem
Many of today’s most popular operas traditionally take place in locations considered exotic by Western culture: Verdi’s epic Aida takes place in Ancient Egypt. Puccini’s famous Turandot takes place in medieval China, and his Madame Butterfly in late nineteenth-century Japan.

Cops vs Superheroes
Earlier this year, a close friend of mine was killed at the hands of police. I won’t go into too much detail about it (because this article has enough triggers), but long story short, it wasn’t met with the worldwide media attention as a bunch of other fatalities handed by police towards black men and women. That’s not to say that I think they all need to flood your Facebook timelines every time a black person dies at the hands of police (oftentimes unarmed) because if so, we’ll wouldn’t be able to escape it.
