Mockingjay proves fire is catching as fast as ever

It is always difficult to approach the first part of a two-part film, particularly when it is essentially a set-up for the climactic finale (I’m looking at you, “Harry Potter,” “Twilight,” and “The Hobbit” franchises). Yes, this is undoubtedly a Hollywood cash-grab scheme, but that is not to say these first-part films should be given any leeway in terms of ... Read More »

World of Warcraft: Warlords of draenor hits the pc

The new World of Warcraft was rumored to mark a return to the Burning Crusade era, the “good ol’ days” that everyone likes to reminisce about.

Calvin Klein adds a size that offends plus size women

For years fashion designers and models alike have been ridiculed for not representing the “real woman” because of the size that most fashion models are so I would think that with Calvin Klein adding size 10 to their selection in women’s underwear, there would be some relief. I was wrong. Instead of being optimistic and understanding about the addition, consumers ... Read More »

Interstellar is a powerful journey out of our galaxy

The much-anticipated Interstellar arrived and immediately created massive explosions, both on film and in the film’s response. Many, like myself, found it to be an unprecedented masterpiece. Others have called the film too outlandish or ridiculous, due to its fictitious scientific perspectives. This, of course, also happened with last year’s space thriller Gravity—and please take note, Interstellar is not Gravity. ... Read More »

Nightcrawler will crawl into your skin and through your thoughts

Attempting to gather my thoughts during the last few seconds of Nightcrawler was an entirely mind-boggling experience. The film is saturated with different moods and commentaries that letting it settle felt almost uneasy. It is, without a doubt, a hauntingly provocative film. Every layer of the film slowly unfolds with ominous and grippingly dark events, and it is a spectacle ... Read More »
