January 26, 2017

In the first minutes of the new Netflix’s series A Series of Unfortunate Events, the audience is warned to look away and watch a show more pleasant; within 10 minutes, however, taking Lemony Snicket’s advice seems impossible. A Series of Unfortunate...

Movie to watch - How to Train Your Dragon 2 As far as DreamWorks sequels go, this one is an all-time great, and that’s with movies like Madagascar and Shrek on the table. The first movie was awesome and instead of dropping off like most sequels, this one followed close behind. This movie comes out of the gate with serious action and doesn’t stop there, leaving no adrenaline junky unsatisfied in the process. The ending scene was a personal favorite, finishing with t...

Forever: the best show to kill the main character

The new show “Forever” on ABC takes killing the main character to an extreme. The show is about lead character Dr. Henry Morgan, working in the New York City morgue. But he has a secret- he cannot die. Morgan goes through his 200-year life span in New York trying to figure out why he cannot die and solving homicides. Oh the irony. The show has the deductive reasoning of Sherlock, the dead bodies of Bones and the history of Sleepy Hollow. Of course the plot is not ...

Finding Carter finds more than expected

Finding Carter finds more than expected

October 14, 2014

Imagine if your whole life was a lie. Every story you heard, picture you saw and even your birthday were all fake. Your mom, the person who you looked up to your whole life, was actually your kidnapper. This is what happened to Carter Steven’s in Finding...

Once upon a time this show was good

ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” has jumped on the Frozen bandwagon by dedicating a whole season to Elsa. A show that was meant to be about fairy tales in a modern town has turned into a bad fan fiction. Just because Disney owns ABC does not mean that ABC should not thrust Frozen back into views homes. The show picks up where the movie left off, but with no direction. Writers were so focused on bringing in Frozen that they did not care about creating a plot and thought that...

In the first moments of the new television series, four characters were faced with a question: “What do we do with the body?” Should it be left at the scene of the crime? Or hidden in the woods? Viewers across America shivered as they pondered what they would do in the situation. It was the first of many times when Shonda Rhimes’s new series “How to Get Away with Murder” would cause audiences to question their own judgment and morals, presenting a new look on the...

After watching shows like Grey’s Anatomy and movies such as The Fault in Our Stars, you start to wonder how many more shows and movies can feature hospitals and diseases. The answer is quite a lot; however, the new show, Red Band Society, takes a different approach. It follows the lives of teenagers who live in a hospital ward, the teenagers who deal with day-to-day life and find unlikely friends through sickness. Episode one starts off with two of the main characters,...

After last year’s VMAs were plagued with Robin Thicke’s huge ego, teddy bears just as large, and foam finger gyration, the 2014 VMAs had to step it up in order to squeeze their way into Monday morning office conversation. The awards show definitely received some buzz, just not the way you expected… Memorable VMA moments were being made before the show even aired; one of Nicki Minaj’s backup singers was bitten by a snake during rehearsals and Iggy Azalea slipped...
