How James Cameron Broke My Heart

James Cameron is a talented filmmaker, but I can’t help but roll my eyes every time I hear him speak. Perhaps it is because there’s a fine line between arrogance and confidence, and he knowingly crosses it whenever he is given an award, asked a question or simply has the opportunity to speak. Though, I’d […]


Seven Psychopaths

Seven Psychopaths Review

Martin McDonagh’s first feature length film “In Bruges” was great. It possessed enough crass humor and sentimentality to make the film lovable. While his second film, “Seven Psychopaths,” has the kind of offensive sense of humor, it lacks a true soft side. Marty (Colin Farrell) is an alcoholic screenwriter struggling to pen his next script, […]


Taken 2: A Family Affair

Taken 2 may be one of the worst sequels I’ve seen in a long time, which is disappointing considering how great the first Taken was. The problem with Taken 2 is that it’s essentially the same movie, except this time it’s a family affair. The thrill is gone, and the audience is left with a […]


Chili Cookoff

The Day I Judged a Chili Cook-Off

A couple weeks ago I took part in judging the 33rd annual Miller Lite Chili Cook-Off. As a chili enthusiast, I was excited to taste what I assumedwould be some of the best chili in the North Georgia. Sadly, it was not. While the chili could be considered average, the same can’t be said for […]


Joseph Gordon Levitt

Looper Review

Like so many other twenty-something women, I’ve had a crush on Joseph Gordon-Levitt since his role as Cameron in “10 Ten Things I Hate About You.” Over the years, Gordon-Levitt has proven his versatility, from the lovelorn lead in “(500) Days of Summer” to his role in Christopher Nolan’s mind-bending “Inception.” In “Looper,” Gordon-Levitt continues […]


Liberal Arts

Liberal Arts Review

“How I Met Your Mother” is one of those rare shows where I like most of the main characters, with the exception of Ted Mosby. It’s not that I find Ted unlikeable; I just don’t find him relatable. Perhaps that’s why I didn’t find Josh Radnor’s latest film Liberal Arts memorable. Liberal Arts is about […]


Sleepwalk with Me

Sleepwalk with Me Review

In an earlier blog, I wrote about my experience at an improv comedy club and how I admire the men and women willing to make a fool of themselves for the sake of others’ enjoyment. With a new appreciation for stand-up comedians, I was excited to see Sleepwalk with Me, a movie about an aspiring […]


Taylor Swift

Celebs I Hate: Taylor Swift

There was a period in college when I was listening to Taylor Swift nonstop. Now out of college and having to deal with the real world, I’m no longer the angsty twenty-something that I used to be. That might be one of the reasons why I’ve developed a strong dislike for Taylor Swift. I’d like […]


The Words

The Words Film Review

As a writer, I was curious to see Bradley Cooper’s new film The Words, particularly because its story is centered on an aspiring novelist’s decision to steal another man’s work. Throughout high school and college I was threatened with failing grades or even expulsion if I were caught plagiarizing. Today, I wouldn’t receive a slap on […]



Best Animated Film of the Summer

Pixar’s Brave was arguably the most anticipated animated film of the summer. And while it was the most visually stimulating animated film of the year so far, its story about a feuding mother and daughter wasn’t inventive, a quality that the most successful and memorable Pixar films, such as Toy Story, The Incredibles, and Up, […]
