‘Knives Out’ is an enormous win for Rian Johnson. While the first act is a bit slow and some of the humor and modern-day aspects don’t work, the gradually escalating story, marvelous cast, and unconventional tone more than make up for those issues.
‘Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order’ is a genuinely spellbinding experience that turns its gaze toward one of the darkest, most underexplored turns in the franchise’s history.
We all remember waking up our parents up at 7 a.m. Christmas morning to run down the stairs and see the presents Santa Claus left under the tree. My family traditionally would wake up, eat muffins and bacon and open gifts. After opening all of the presents, we would get dressed and head down to southern Indiana to see our extended family. We would always spend the night at the Holiday Inn in Columbus, Indiana. Why? Simply because it’s a tradition.
Every morning, I chuck numerous tops onto my bed because they just aren’t quite what I want to wear that day. I rummage through my overflowing closet until I finally find the top — the one that makes me feel unstoppable and the only one that matches my mood for the day. I walk out of my room, feeling satisfied knowing that I’m wearing my ideal outfit for the day and that I won’t be overthinking it. All of that comes to a halt when I feel it.
As someone who gets drained from any human interaction, regardless of how much I enjoy it, filler talk used simply for the gratification of hearing yourself talk or just to fill what you think is an awkward void is exhausting.
‘The End of the F***ing World’ Season 2 is a surprisingly worthy follow-up to the powerful first season.
'The Lighthouse' is an insane, perplexing nightmare of a movie that’ll stick with you long after it’s over.
While being my first and probably last time seeing Bob Dylan, his show at Emens Auditorium was entirely enjoyable. His setlist flowed well along with the help of the incredible stage production.
Waking up to the smell of meat and potatoes has to be every American’s dream. I guess I’m truly just unpatriotic because I don’t like — no, I despise — Thanksgiving. It’s just one more day until Christmas, honestly. It just so happens we celebrate it by overeating, napping and watching TV surrounded by our relatives we usually can’t wait to kick out of the house. Thanksgiving just isn’t that great. And before you attack me, just listen.
When Forever 21 announced it was filing for bankruptcy, my immediate thought was, “Well, I guess they were only Temporarily 21.” After I laughed at my own joke, however, I realized just how hard it was going to be for me to buy clothes from here on out.
People watch their favorite movie more than once, attend more than one sporting event to support their favorite team and visit the same city multiple times because it makes them happy. So, why is it wrong for me to want to see my favorite musician more than once for the same reasons?
That moment when the filler music before a show stops, and you know it’s show time. The venue lights go down, the screams rise, the intro music to the first song begins … and there they are: one of your favorite artists, if not your favorite, in the flesh. The artist or band that has lifted your spirits, quenched your bad moods and had you bopping from day one is directly in front of you.
Although this season has felt repetitive at times with its twists and uneven with the development of its supporting cast, each episode has divulged a new element into the workings of Redwood.
While this is by no means Kanye West’s best work, I still found a lot of enjoyment out of 'Jesus Is King.'
