Grading All the New Movie Trailers Out of Comic-Con


I traveled to visit family this weekend, so as new trailers came pouring in over the weekend from San Diego's Comic-Con, I was only able to watch a couple of them. I'm sure many of you may be interested in seeing them, debating them, and discussing them. So I Read more

Bright Spots: Chauncy's Chance


So I just happened to see Memphis, Tennessee briefly trending earlier today on Facebook (it appears to have already dropped half an hour after I first saw it), and so I obviously had to see what was going on. I was thrilled to see it was for another positive Read more

As a White Man, I now understand why the O.J. Simpson Jury did what it did


It was a hot Friday night in the summer of 1994. My parents and I had just walked into our house from a lengthy little league game of mine. Despite hours in the heat, I was wound up from the excitement of a win and eager to dive into Read more

Bright Spots: Memphis Teen Pays For College Like A Boss


Every now and then the media chooses to spend a little time on positive stories to share with the general public. I think it's important that we, as consumers, show up with website hits and/or media views to reinforce this positive publicity in a society dominated by negative news Read more

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

Fatherhood, Faith, and Film

My son, John (Jack) Joseph Williams III, was born on October 10, 2014. If you visit my social media page or run into me, it’s clear how much I love Jack. And most times, you’ll find me quickly veering away from my usual favorite topics of discussion (politics, film, TV, sports, and books) and talk as much as possible about Jack and being Jack’s father.

I’ve been hesitant to blog about my newfound fatherhood, though, for a variety of reasons. 1) I have no wisdom to offer or insight to provide. If anything, fatherhood simply humbles you and makes you more in awe of God the Father and his love for us. Like marriage, you begin to grasp slightly more yet still only a sliver of the all-encompassing love, grace, and sacrifice of God the Father and Christ the Son. 2) No matter what I say, it won’t be as hilarious as Seth’s “10 Things You Need to Know About Babies that Doctors Will Not Tell You.” 3) Fatherhood is the best thing that’s ever happened to me… but I don’t want to be THAT guy.

Yet here I am, a little over three months into parenting, and I’m blogging about fatherhood. What brought me to this point? Well, like most things with me, it all started with George Bailey.

MAROON-5-SUGAR

Earlier this week, Maroon 5 released their video for Sugar, a catchy, hook-filled, bubble-gum pop of a song. Just to clarify, no shame here, I think it’s pretty good. Whatever. Read more

For a full list of nominees, go here.

Alex: No “Lego Movie”? I mean, seriously Academy. No “Lego Movie”?

It was the snub of the morning we certainly didn’t see coming. Sure, things like “Nightcrawler’s” Jake Gyllenhaal getting the boot in favor of “American Sniper’s” Bradley Cooper were a surprise. We’re used to late-in-the-year flicks coming in and snatching of nominations from early releases, though. Read more

A Yawn-Worthy Golden Globes Recap

Posted on by Alex Beene in Awards Addict, Entertainment, Featured, Movies | Leave a comment

71st Annual Golden Globe Awards - Show - Season 71

Care to watch the Golden Globes this year? That’s OK – I didn’t really feel like it either. Yep, this Awards Addict who normally eagerly anticipates this time of year was less than enthused to tune in Sunday night. I sucked it up and gave this trainwreck of a movie season a chance, mostly out of a mental obligation to my profession, I suppose. Read more
