What I Learned about Chris Pratt's Faith


Most of us have loved Chris Pratt since we first met him as Andy Dwyer on Parks and Rec. Then he made his dramatic debuts in Academy Award Best Picture nominees Moneyball and Zero Dark Thirty. The latter revealed that he could be an action star, so it came as no surprise Read more

The 13 Best Things in Entertainment for 2013

Posted on by Alex Beene in Entertainment, Featured, Movies, Music, Television | Leave a comment

2013 Entertainment

Isn’t 13 suppose to be an unlucky number? Don’t tell that to the entertainment industry. This past year turned out to be one of innovation on multiple fronts.

The cable box took a back seat to streaming services in the pursuit of new TV series. Music artists started offering up full album appetizers for listening before consumers bought the main course. A wide range of fresh devices entered the market, including newly numbered gaming consoles and tablets with more pixels than we could count.

Of course, not everything had the high-quality stamp of approval. Despite crafting a surprisingly solid album, Miley Cyrus seemed more content making shock performances for headlines than art. Ben Affleck being chosen as the new Batman left more than a few of us scratching our heads. Oh, and let’s not even begin to get into Kim and Kanye’s new child, A&E’s “Duck Dynasty” debacle and the epic meltdown of Amanda Bynes.

Instead, let’s focus in on the sights and sounds that left us feeling good. Without further hype, here are the top 13 things that made 2013 a satisfying year. Read more

SAG Nominations put “12 Years” out front, give boost to “Dallas Buyers Club” & “Butler”

Each year, a heavy amount of anticipation is given to the Screen Actors Guild nominations. They are in many ways the first “inside view” we get as to what the Academy is liking during the awards season. After all, the actors branch is the largest one in the Academy’s membership, and presumably most – if not all – of those actors are also in SAG.

Of course, it would be and is often a fault to take these nominations too seriously when assessing the Oscar race. Yes, they are a very good indicator for the actors and actresses who get nominated, but keep this in mind: (a) these nominations are made very early in the season, meaning most voters didn’t see every film in contention yet and (b) these are acting-based nominations, and “Best Ensemble” does not equate to “Best Picture.”

Still, they’re the first clues we get, so let’s put them under the magnifying glass.
