Celebrity Slam - (05/20/15)

For love of The Game

It seems like everyone out there is in pursuit of some sort of cross-platform celebrity. It’s no longer enough to be famous as an actor or a musician or an athlete – you have to become a multimedia sensation. Spotlight seekers have developed an affinity for spreading their fame-hungry pollen across as wide a swath of the pop culture landscape as possible.

A life through the eyes of others

There’s always a degree of remove between story and storyteller. Whether it’s a screen or a page or a stage or what have you, there’s always separation between the tale being told and the one doing the telling.

Miller’s revival of Mad Max a masterpiece of exquisite action insanity

Too often in the cinematic realm, we allow advertising and hype to raise our expectations to unreachable heights. We get caught up in that wonderful sense of hope that accompanies films that we very much want to see. We convince ourselves of the inherent brilliance of these movies only to be inevitably let down when the time to see them finally arrives.

Sequel not quite as sharp as the original

As someone who spends a lot of time at the movies, my capacity to be surprised by a film has been significantly diminished over time. That isn’t to say that there aren’t surprises within movies, but it’s rare for me to like or dislike (in general terms) a movie much more than I expect to when I take my seat.

Outstanding novel offers unique take on Heaven

One of the first books I reviewed for this publication was called “Bang Crunch,” a collection of short stories by Neil Smith that was published in 2008. It was a striking book, one that I occasionally revisited in subsequent years; it practically bulged at the binding with talent.

Celebrity Slam - (05/13/15)

This is not going to be your usual Celebrity Slam.

Unless you live under a rock, you’ve heard by now about the punishments levied by the NFL onto the New England Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady. The four-game suspension, the million dollar fine, the draft pick penalties – it’s a lot.

Group Dynamic

The power of ensemble

One of the joys that my job affords me is the opportunity to write about my passions. There are worse ways to make a living than occasionally spilling a little ink talking about some of the things I love; bringing my personal experiences to the page.
