In Defense of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice


Imagine the following: a popular movie genre is categorized by smart but formulaic films, enjoyable and entertaining while also going out of their way to explain everything explicitly to the viewer and not engage any level of mystery or metaphysical questions. Another film comes along in this genre and while Read more

2016 Oscars Hot Takes


OK…I’m going to try to make this as short and sweet as possible so that I can close the book on the 2016 Academy Awards. A couple quick notes before we dive in: I love Chris Rock but I thought his material was just okay. I both wanted and expected a Read more

Second Annual Groucho Movie Awards


Welcome back, movie nerds! Last year I started a new tradition of hosting my own annual movie awards that I deemed "The Grouchos". This name is obviously meant to be an homage to Groucho Marx, and is doubly fitting because I tend to get snarky when it comes to Read more

I’d like to apologize for the delay of this Bachelor recap. Could I blame it on the National Championship game that aired at the same time as The Bachelor on Monday? Sure. Should I blame it on the fact that I had a busy day Tuesday at my actual job that makes me money? Maybe, but why tell you anything that’s not the cold hard truth.

The truth is that I was trapped inside Olivia’s mouth for the past 24 hours.

Welcome back, welcome back, welcome back.

The Bachelor could not return to our lives at a better time of the year. Christmas has come and gone, and you’ve watched George Bailey run around Bedford Falls screaming, “My mouth’s bleeding, Burt! My mouth’s bleeding!” Every time his voice gets louder 10 angels lose their wings. New Year’s Eve/Day is over and you vowed to never get talked into going to an 80’s cover band party again where you ring in the New Year with a bunch of strangers wearing neon windbreakers. Now you have returned to work where you politely asked a coworker how their break was, and they went way too into detail about the dynamics of their relationship with their parents. Then you go home and try to forget about it all and you scroll through Twitter begging for a distraction and you see that the local newspaper tweeted a story about Kacey Musgraves’ boots being stolen in Nashville and she now might write a song about it (that’s a real thing). Now all you can think is, “When, when does it end?”

Disclaimer: I watched the show immediately after my favorite hockey team suffered a brutal loss. All comments and analogies will most likely reflect how upset I was at the time. I’m still upset, for what it’s worth. But hey, you know the old saying – it’s better to let a sporting event ruin your day/week/month than to put it in perspective with the grand scheme of life! On top of that, halfway through writing this recap I knocked over a 24oz tumbler of coffee off of my desk and directly into my workbag. So just keep that in mind when you feel like I may have crossed the line.

(Am I the only person in America who TiVo’d the Bachelorette to watch after the Stanley Cup Final?)

(Am I the only person on earth still saying TiVo when referring to any television recording? I don’t know why I do that – I never even owned an actual TiVo.)

Let’s get to it…

The Bachelorette 2015: Bio Breakdown

bachelorette2

This past Monday I felt an emptiness in my life. I knew it had nothing to do with my work or my personal life or not pursuing my dreams or anything like that, so I googled “the bachelorette 2015 start date,” and to my delight I found that it starts this coming Monday, May 18th!

The natural next step was to look for the bios. I had a cold sweat when I thought that I missed the bio release, but then when looking on ABC’s page I couldn’t find any bios except for Britt, Kaitlyn, and author of The Perfect Letter, Chris Harrison.
