Movie Review: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Dead Men Tell No Tales is a true return to form for the franchise. It is ridiculous and laughable and never for one moment believable and that’s why we love it. The plot?  A young Henry Turner is looking for Neptune’s Trident which will free his father and all those under a curse of the sea. Will Turner (Orlando Bloom) has been hanging out under the curse of the Flying…

Will you #GrootDanceBomb for Disney & the Plant a Billion Trees Program?

Who doesn’t love Baby Groot?  His little dance as he sat in his pot at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy won our hearts.  His adorable, gleeful chaoticness in the new Guardians is sure to be scene stealing.  (You know the old adage is don’t act with children and babies but I don’t remember them ever saying anything about trees!)  And you know you and all of your friends…

"Drowned in moonlight, strangled by her own bra".

Carrie Fisher:  More than just a Princess by Durrilion Today started like any other day.  I woke up, ate, ran errands, and logged into facebook.  That was when I heard the terrible news.  She was gone.  I wanted my first article after an academic hiatus to be something fun, uplifting, however the news of Carrie’s death wouldn’t leave me.  I kept hearing words in my head about her struggles, how…

The Unsung Hero of Rogue One

If you’re reading a review of Rogue One I can guarantee people are talking about Jyn and Captain Andor.  They’re discussing Alan Tudyk as K-2SO and Mads Mikkelsen as Galen Erso.  They may even mention their like or dislike of the CG characters. But I can almost guarantee that they aren’t talking about the real hero of Rogue One.  Imperial pilot turned Rebel Bodhi Rook. Bodhi made the biggest leap…

I don’t think anyone can deny that Benedict Cumberbatch looks like he was born to play…
