The Adderal Diarie’s intensity appeals to eye

Filed under Entertainment, Reviews

"The Adderal Diaries" was a film that I never thought would captivate my interest. It was not in big time theaters and barely made it's way to the papers. When I watched the film I was actually scared. The vibe it gave was negative and dark. The film starts with a man writing, well obviously, because...

New movies decline in meaning

I honestly cannot remember the last time I went to the theatre to see a new movie. I've seen very few appealing trailers. They hype around new movies has just begun to be minimal. If I could have one huge thing added to the world of media, it'd honestly be a theatre for just the old timers. The movies...

At the age of 25, Bo Burnham is already an extremely accomplished comedian with multiple comedy specials and albums. Burnham's new comedy special "Make Happy" premiered on June 3 on Netflix. "Make Happy" isn't Burnham's best work, but still is a great example of his comedic ability. The special showcased...

Country has slowly evolved into one of the most mainstream and repetitive genres there is- boats, trucks, beer, and girls are mentioned in merely every song. But Dierks Bentley's newest album "Black" delivers intellect and diversity, straying away from the country norm. Right off the bat, highlighting...

It wouldn't be an unfair statement to claim that I am yet again totally unqualified to review this movie, because I am ridiculously enamored with writer-director Shane Black (in a professional manner, thank you very much). Between "Lethal Weapon," "The Long Kiss Goodnight," and "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang"...

Thomas Rhett is quickly becoming one of the most popular artists in today's country music. He has an insane amount of singles that are quite popular right now, and there is one especially famous that just began playing on the radio.

‘Ripcord’ impresses audiences

Keith Urban continues to further mend the gap between hip-hop and country music on his latest album "Ripcord." This album is more modern and full of pop music aspects than any of his previous ones, and there are only a few songs with a dominant country presence. But it's apparent that Urban progressed...

A new trend has officially made its impact on today's latest fashion trends. Palazzo pants can't be compared to a pair of blue jeans or leggings by any means. Palazzo pants have created their own category of hip and trendy pants that are comfy yet sophisticated. They can be worn for almost any occasion...

Both Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele, though it's next to impossible to not think of one without the other, can write very funny sketches. This is why their show and their comedy routines are so funny. This is why the poster for their movie "Keanu" is funny, because just looking at it brings to...

Disney's live-action CGI remake of "The Jungle Book" incorporates much more than the bare necessities of the 1967 classic. "The Jungle Book" uniquely retells the plot of the original film. It's essentially a destination movie following a human-cub named Mowgli (Neel Sethi) and the challenges and decisions...

Who exactly keeps letting Zack Snyder direct superhero movies? Is it the fine fellows at DC Comics, so desperate to keep up with the Disney-fied success of their Marvel counterparts that they'll let the man who turned some of the greatest comic books of all time into mediocre snoozefests handle their...
