Posted on by Clayton Martin in Featured, Movies, Netflix, The Imaginarium | 6 Comments

Hmmm how to follow up my Noteworthy Films of 2012 post… Okay so over the weekend I went through my Netflix queue and swapped out a bunch of movies and shows. Embarrassingly enough I always have the maximum number (500) of things allowed in my instant queue. As I looked through some of the things I had rated, I got to thinking that there were a good number of things that would be good to share and suggest to our …

Posted on by Colin Stovall in Basketball, Featured, Sports, Tuesday's With Tony, Weekly Posts | Leave a comment

Today we celebrate. Break out your Cristal, Don Perionne, and Franzia because our boy Tony Allen has been verified!!!! Far too long has this Twitter account laid in the shadows of Unverificationland. But alas, the light has revealed the truth. To date, this easily makes Tony’s top ten life accomplishments. I may be slightly hyperbolic in my assumption about this achievement, but aren’t all bloggers masters of the hyperbole? Who knew a blue circle with a check mark could generate …

  Editor’s Update: On Saturday, April 21st, 2012, Philip Humber of the Chicago White Sox pitched the 21st Perfect Game in Major League Baseball history. Another moment in baseball history when perfection was achieved, making the analysis below of Billy Chapel’s accomplishment appropriate to one more man who has taken the mound in the quest for perfection. In a year when three of my favorite/most critically acclaimed films were tributes to the nostalgic era of 1920s cinema, film’s impact on …

This guest post on Jeff, Who Lives At Home (opening today in theaters) comes from Robert Funke, who is currently studying Screen Writing at USC. We are glad he could join us for his review of the film and highly suggest following him on Twitter at @RFFunke! 1. I wish I could wink. Ninety-nine point nine percent of the time, I can’t wink, at least not in a way that’s helpful. I can close one eye while keeping the other …

Dark Horses and Glass Slippers

Posted on by The Wise Guise in Basketball, Featured, Sports | 6 Comments

Luck, Vendettas, and Madness: A Tale of Two Popular Dark Horses & Picking a Villain By Joseph Williams The HBO series, Luck, was canceled yesterday by David Milch, Michael Mann, and HBO executives after a third horse died on set during production. I watched the first episode. Production quality was through the roof, but I just didn’t care enough about it.  Ultimately, the show wasn’t worth the death of those horses. Investigators rushed to the set and HBO hedged their …

Movie Review: 21 Jump Street

Posted on by Clayton Martin in Featured, Movie Reviews, Movies | 1 Comment

Last week I got to go to a sneak preview showing of 21 Jump Street, which starts playing in theaters this Friday (March 16th).

This intrigued me and built a little excitement going into it. 12 reviews probably doesn’t sound like …
