Growing Up with Peyton


A few weeks ago, I never thought I'd see Peyton Manning take another snap, much less throw another pass or another touchdown. Much less win another playoff game. Much less defeat Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the New England Patriots to win another AFC Championship. (Unbelievably, after all the drama, Peyton Read more

Movie Review: The Revenant


The Revenant: **** out of 4. It's easy to think of The Revenant as simply the vehicle for Leonardo DiCaprio's brutally other-worldly Oscar-winning performance or as Alejandro González Iñárritu's follow-up to last year's Award-winning Birdman. In fact, as I was sitting in the theater watching Leo eat raw bison liver and sleep in Read more

How Madonna Changed My Life


It feels like yesterday. When I was seven-years-old, my mother bought me my first computer. This device lacked the thinness of a MacBook Air or the portability of a tablet. No, this was a honest-to-goodness, white-block-with-a-screen computer. It was completely old school, and I loved it. Included with it was Read more

As this year’s crop of summer movies is entering full swing I thought it was an appropriate time to do these rankings. I think the biggest deciding factor I used in evaluating them was the longevity of the movies that were released that summer. The other main factor I used was the impact the specific movies had on the times in which they were released. Read more

A film is never really good unless the camera is an eye in the head of a poet.

-Orson Welles

I’m going to be kicking off a new movie ranking series and I thought the most appropriate start would be to review movies about the movies. These are films that take on an aspect of Hollywood, whether it’s a struggling actor or actress, a psychotic screenwriter or quirky director.

I think these movies tend to most commonly embody the Orson Welles quote from above. Read more
