Movie Trailers Background RESIZING COPY COPY
The Previews Of Past Decades
In a world where previews used to be especially bad, comes the story of exactly why those trailers from the early 2000s were as terrible as they seemed. While their purpose has remained the same, their lack of cohesion and creativity leaves room for explanation.

Some Films To Help You Not Completely Give Up During Fall
Another genre of films exists within the Fall season that is not horror. It’s one that encompasses the time of year when the temperature begins to inch lower and lower, when leaves scatter across the streets, the time of year when people buy mutant-shaped gourds and decorate them on their porch, across...

The Barbenheimer Experience
For many the concept of witnessing both Barbie and Oppenheimer in the same day has undertaken a phenomenon akin to witnessing a solar eclipse, a sensational event that has people willing to dedicate the majority of their day to watching the two films in whichever order they choose.

I Accidentally Committed Piracy
I’m sure this comes as no surprise but I am not a technologically-savvy person. Setting up my own internet and remembering the multiple variations of the same password often proves difficult for me.

Rambo Has Feelings Too
It feels like I should’ve seen this a long time ago. I can imagine a thirteen-year-old me stuck at home during winter break with nothing to do other than glue my eyes to a television screen and my Dad—in his ever obsession with war movies and any type of military-related media—would turn on First Blood...

Love And Ridicule In The Time Of Reality Television
Watching The Bachelorette has cleared up a couple things for me: there may be no good people left in this world, and epicaricacy is America’s national pastime. I’m sure plenty are sounding out epicaricacy at this very moment as they try to connect the dots between this cumbersome word and a show where...
