GGNY Review: The Giver

By Nick Robbins A good idea is a terrible thing to waste. The Giver, which opened this Friday, is blessed with a fantastic premise but suffers from poor execution and a lack of real commitment to either the source material or the variations the screenwriters have chosen to make. Based on Lois Lowry’s 1993 novel, […]

True Blood Recap 07.09 “Love is to Die”

By Greg Solomon At long last, the penultimate episode of this shitshow. Time to see if they can somehow manage to make this any worse (I’d say it’s impossible but I’m sure they’ll prove me wrong!) Will Bill live? Will Bill die? Will Sookie give birth to the baby of the LOST smoke monster? Will I […]

True Blood Recap 07.08 “Almost Home” 1

By Greg Solomon Almost but not quite – three more of these gauntlets to get through! But for now, The Abnormal Heart. My apologies in advance as I am a day late to the party this week, and it’s also a party I just want to go home from. On the recap they show quite a […]

True Blood Recap 07.07 “Maybe the Last Time”

By Greg Solomon The episodes have definitely felt like they’re getting better week on week – will this trend continue? Let’s find out! Thanks to the hints from the “Previously on True Blood” montage, it looks like this will be the week that Hoyt reappears in Bon Temps (yay Hoyt!). For some reason, Amber is […]

Lucy and the New Hollywood Cerebral Science

By Zachary Kirk-Singer I have been really excited to see Lucy for quite some time. I had been waiting at least since January to see Scarlet “evolve” and fling people across the room like a more curvaceous Jean Grey. So, when the chance for my boyfriend and myself arose to see it early, I jumped […]

True Blood Recap 07.06 “Karma”

By Greg Solomon Here we are folks, in the second half of the final season (and unlike most AMC series we didn’t have to wait six months since the last episode). So what’s happened so far? Eric and Pam are planning to kill Sarah Newlin, Bill and Eric are dying of the Hep-V, Andy gave the best proposal […]

True Blood Recap 07.05 “Lost Cause”

By Greg Solomon Previously on True Blood: Alcide died, the Yakuza killed people, Lettie Mae kept seeing Tara, Lala and James were dying to get sexy, the stupid vamps are dead, and Arlene drank from Keith (who looks exceedingly familiar and I think its from his sting on 24) We open on the long-lost bloodcurdling screams […]


Snowpiercer – GGNY Review 2

By Zachary Kirk-Singer While I had only been waiting about two weeks for Snowpiercer from when I first heard of it, the rest of America has been waiting for just shy of a year. After seeing the really well executed trailer for this film, I quickly discovered the controversy that is coupled with this intriguing sci-fi […]
