The idea for this show is genius. Take the classic show, "Full House" that nearly branded the 90's, and make it available to us as if the characters lived that way for the past 20 years. Genius. "Full House" was my favorite show growing up. Everyone could respect the lessons that the show would teach...

Widely popular alt rock band "The 1975" just released their newest album, "I like it when you fall asleep, for you are so beautiful yet so unaware of it". The band's sound can be described as a mix between the hay day of 80's synth rock and today's alt rock style. It boasts hits like "Love Me", "Somebody...

Definitely a movie to remember, "Deadpool" makes comedic history. It not only incorporates witty and unique jokes, but also includes a plethora of amusing puns and references. The plot is set around Deadpool, or Wade Wilson (Ryan Reynolds), and his thrilling adventure of revenge. Along the way, the film...

In my ever praised career as a film critic/annoying kid with a column, I've found that my writing tends to separate movies into the categories of "appalling" and "Oscar-worthy". Given this situation, I've resolved to guarantee a solid mix of positivity and negativity in my present and future work. So...

One new trend going on in the make-up community are liquid lipsticks. With traditional lipstick, one must carry the tube around to re-apply throughout the day. However, liquid lipsticks prove as high-quality and favorable to users with their all-day stick. These lipsticks are on the market averaging...

Sometimes it is  nice to get up and get an amazing breakfast with eggs, bacon, waffles, and some orange juice. The only problem is it is difficult, time consuming, and messy to make all these foods. So why not go to a place that makes everything. Egg Harbor is fast, affordable, and delicious. Egg...

An ode to Johnnie’s Beef

Winning the lottery. Finding out there's no homework. An unexpected skill check being easier than thought. These are the few things in this world that can even come close to the amount of perfection that is taking that first bite of a warm, soggy Johnnie's beef sandwich. Pair that with a refreshing lemon...

Tore & Luke’s is the meaning of life

Tore & Luke's is beautiful in every way. Start with the drive-through. The amount of gems are nearly infinite, with the wonderfully-buttery pizza slice and the overflowing bag of French fries. One bag is enough to melt the heart. They are, perhaps, the best French fries I have ever had. And I...

‘The Boy’ falls below expectations

Filed under Entertainment, Online only, Reviews

In a normal home, dolls are seen as innocent, fun playthings. Given this fact, something that never ceases to surprise me is that the horror genre manages to take seemingly harmless toys and makes them truly horrifying-the antithesis of innocent and fun. The theme of evil dolls makes an appearance in...

‘Mad’ as hell (but might be worth taking)

February 9, 2016
Filed under Reviews

One of the best moments in "Mad Dogs" thus far is a scene where the show's four protagonists attempt to negotiate with a woman whose car they've just crashed into. After a number of failed attempts, one character walks up to her and quietly threatens to shoot her if she doesn't walk away. The woman's...
