There are very few people that do little wrong in the entertainment industry. One of those people is Cary Joji Fukunaga. The man behind the heralded first season of True Detective, has come back to give us another head scratcher that is Maniac. The series follows two individuals (Jonah Hill and Emma Stone) as they navigate through a seemingly fantasy based world resulting from a pharmaceutical … Continue reading Maniac Drops September 21st on Netflix
It pains me to ever write this, but the past few weeks have solidified the point that Entourage has not stood the test of time. The famed show that guided me through my first few tumultuous years in the industry is just like that great relationship you reminisce about; it wasn’t all that. Having been sidelined for the past few weeks with illness, I decided … Continue reading Entourage, Does it Still Hold Up?
Right before Bright came out a few months ago I was in the middle of writing how Will Smith was on a strange path that culminated in another Rotten score. Then I watched the movie. Then Will Smith joined Instagram. Then I scrapped my piece. Did I almost betray the man who entertained us all these years? I did. But maybe I can make up … Continue reading The Will Smith Renaissance

Every year we see so much achievement from technology to apparel, but for some reason 2017 felt like the tide turned a bit faster, engulfing us in some of the most innovative tech, designs, and style of the past decade. Elon Musk continued to wow us with his concept of the future, and Apple is continuously putting out products that people still line up for. … Continue reading Our 2017 Top Ten
I wanted to love Justice League. Truly. As someone who heavily criticized Man of Steel‘s third act, and the abomination that was Batman vs. Superman, I wanted to really get behind this response to The Avengers. I made all the excuses and even accepted Zack Snyder leaving in post and Junkie XL getting replaced in the middle of production. I waited patiently like everyone else … Continue reading Film Review: Justice League
Don’t judge me for the title – I had to in the context of nostalgia. I think nostalgia is an overused sentiment for things we remember or attempt to remember from the past. As someone who is a borderline millennial the concept of time travel is absolutely one of them. I might have seen every television show and film from the 80s/90s on the subject … Continue reading Future Man: Watch This Show if You Want to Live
For all my real N.E.RD. enthusiasts, the group really hasn’t gone anywhere. Pharrell has become a personality that 1) doesn’t age 2) is ubiquitous 3) has developed into one of the best features to have on a record. Pharrell is the friendly vampire that has invaded our headspace with “Happy” and the Daft Punk infused “Get Lucky”. Chad Hugo, although not a fan of the … Continue reading The Resurrection of N.E.R.D.
I have to start with a legitimate confession. I hated the first two Thor movies. That is not a popular camp to be in, but Thor and Thor: The Dark World were not pleasant flicks in my eyes. I remember going to see Thor with my friend Mike and missing the middle half of the movie. I even went and bought Thor on Blue-ray to see … Continue reading Film Review: Thor: Ragnarok
At one point everyone wanted a basketball shoe – and it makes sense why. Basketball players have always been seen as the epitome of the fashion and “cool” meter since Dr. Jay. That has changed throughout the years, and Adidas has been the forefront of that. Now, I know most people will not workout or even run in Kanye’s Yeezy line (I mean who would … Continue reading Always Striving: A$AP Ferg’s PureBOOST DPR
