Quite a ‘Spectre’

Quite a ‘Spectre’

When "Skyfall" came out three years ago - and yes, I'm going to compare this movie to "Skyfall" because A. I'm lazy and B. literally everyone else with a column has already done so - it had just about every right to be little more than a mashup of Bond's greatest hits: a delightful - if less than original...

As ABC's 17th annual "13 Nights of Halloween" underwent the countdown to the 31st, I couldn't help but notice this year's new assortment of both modern day productions and classics. The 13 daylong premiere kicked off with a marathon of the "Harry Potter" film's final series while later that night shifting...

I'm not bashing Justin Bieber for once. I know, shocking, but it's not 2012 anymore and hating on the pop star just isn't entertaining anymore. After a few years of bad behavior, Justin seems to finally be turning it around and apologizing for his actions. By apologizing I really just mean coming out...

Rain or shine, rain boots roam the halls. Shoes that used to be reserved for thunderstorms and splashing in puddles have evolved into a fashion statement rather than limited to practicality. With higher end brands like Hunter on the rise, rain boots have proven that they can be sleek and stylish unlike...

Imagine Dragons has always been my favorite band of all time. I've seen them live, front row, and could sing each and every one of their songs. And after their "Smoke+Mirrors" album, I really didn't think they could get any better. I was wrong; they put out this single, "I Was Me" on October 12. It...

Fans holler at ‘Jem and the Holograms’

Unlike the audience in "Jem and the Holograms," I did't cheer for or enjoy the movie. It seemed corny and created just to make money. Its two-dimensional cartoonish-like characters and overly predictable plot made me yawn. The movie is about an aspiring and upcoming band known of course as "Jem and...

Most times, anything involving the word "Nazi" shows up in the "Recommended" section of one's streaming service, some serious life choices need to be evaluated. Not this time. Now streaming on Amazon Prime is the one show about freaky alternate history that's good enough to justify all of the other weird...

Since "Gravity" and "Interstellar," a void in space has been filled with Ridley Scott's masterpiece "The Martian". Matt Damon plays as Mark Watney, an astronaut aboard the Ares III. Unfortunately he's left on Mars after his team has to leave him, assuming him to be dead. Luckily Watney survives, but...

All I ever hear about is the obsession of Netflix, I can't count the times I've heard "I just want to be in bed watching Netflix." Well lately I wish I could say the same. but I just can't. I used to dwell and obsess over old shows that had streamed live years ago and that I had just discovered like...

The first time I ever saw Johnny Depp was as Jack Sparrow in "Pirates of the Caribbean" when I was eight or so. For the seven years since, Jack Sparrow has danced across the screen in the sets of "Dark Shadows", "The Lone Ranger", and, of course, "Mortdecai". With the appearance of Whitey Bulger, Depp's...
