  • New Years Eve Partying Guide
    To go out, or not to go out? That is the question.Fight the crowds, traffic, weather and drunks to attempt to have a good time 'out on the town'? Or stay at home and keep it low key, maybe have a few friends over, watch the fireworks/ball drop on TV with some champagne and call it an early one...Whatever you choose, both ways can actually be a great time, if you do it right.
  • The Oscars: How to Predict the Best Picture Winner
    I believe this strategy can correctly predict the Best Picture winner for (almost) any year's Oscars, simply by tallying up points based on what categories the films were nominated for. The thinking comes down to focusing on these categories, for these reasons, with this point system:Best Picture NomineesOf course, start with the best picture nominee list.
  • 2016 Academy Award Winners
    Well, the votes are in. Most of our winners were expected, some not. (SPOILER:Leo finally gets his Oscar) Do you agree with the turn-out?Best Picture: "Spotlight"Direction:"The Revenant," Alejandro G.
  • Batman V Superman: Hit or Miss?
    March 25th is the big day for a new Batman movie to prove itself. Yes, Superman is in it, but it is obvious that all eyes are on the man in black. Director Christopher Nolan has left behind very large high-res shoes to fill.
  • Lorde's Tribute To Bowie Brought What Was Missing in Gaga's
    Lady Gaga is a masterful performer and artist, let's get that out of the way. Her tribute to David Bowie at the Grammy awards was impressive, yes, but it was missing something vital, sincerity. The performance seemed to be more about whether or not Gaga could pull off the multiple costume changes, and lastly, Bowie's music.
  • 2016 Oscar Nominations Full List (with predictions)
    The 88th annual Oscar nominations have finally been announced. So I think it's worth going over the full list of nominees, and discussing thoughts on who should win, who will (likely) win the top awards, and why (on both accounts).
  • Music Award Shows TV & Online Viewing Options
    If you've ever found yourself having a hard time keeping track of when every major music award show is then you are not alone. I have, on more than one occasion, realized that I missed an awards show or tuned into one well into the program because I didn't know what time it started.
  • 'Dancing With The Stars' - Season 21 Full Cast Lineup
    Dancing with the Stars has their season 21 lineup of celebs and pro dancing partners all announced and ready to go. And for me, names that stand out are Gary Busey (for sure) and Paula Deen. Clearly they are swinging for the fences for ratings with these two, and it might just work this season.
  • HBO's 'Silicon Valley' Cements Mike Judge's Comedic Genius
    The word 'genius' has been sorely overused for decades now, and often times it's used incorrectly. When something or someone's actions or body of work is really just pretty clever or somewhat unique, or they do something 'ingenious', you far too often hear the exaggerated GENIUS! label instead. It seriously annoys me.
  • Miley Cyrus Speaks out Against Religious Freedom Law Supporters
    Miley Cyrus has just spoke out about the new proposed law in Indiana. It is the Religious Freedom Law. Which is said to allow business owners to legally discriminate against the gay community. First of all I have to say this, are you kidding me? Why does it always seem when everyone as a whole (speaking of the U.S.
  • 2015's Most Imaginative Movies (With Previews)
    2015 has some really interesting films on the docket. Decided to focus on the 12 Sci-Fi/Fantasy films I'm most anticipating for the rest of the season. If you enjoy mind-bending or wildly creative and imaginative storytelling, that looks to be seriously pushing boundaries of where film has not yet gone before, be sure and give these films a consideration.
  • Kathy Griffin Leaves 'Fashion Police' For It's Overly Judgmental Nature
    The comedienne Kathy Griffin has departed the overly obnoxious, judgmental, and downright rude show, 'Fashion Police'. After a short stint of just 7 episodes, Griffin has left due to not agreeing with it's most important rule. Judge everyone and everything in the rudest way possible. I couldn't applaud her more.
  • 'Dancing With The Stars' Season 20 Cast Revealed!
    The 20th season of 'Dancing With the Stars' cast and matchups have been revealed. No doubt this year has one of the best cast's I've seen to date. Including NFL player Michael Sam. Which I am very excited to see. It's always interesting to see an athlete change from his rugged shell, to an eloquent, twirling, dressed up performer.
  • 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' Wins Big At the Oscars
    The polls are in! 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' sweeps the Oscars with a total of 4 awards. No doubt deserving every single one of them. The film was original, clever, funny, and strange. Not to mention the sets and costumes were beautiful and packed with amazing color. It seemed to me like every award was being handed off to anyone associated with the film.
  • 2015 Full Oscars Nominees List
    This year is full of amazing choices. In my opinion one of the best years in a long time. Speaking in terms of actual good content to choose from instead of just remake after remake and dry comedies. My favorite and most anticipated category is Best Picture. There are two films that have caught a lot of attention this year, 'Boyhood' and, 'Birdman'.
  • Five Films That Should Have Never Been Awarded 'Best Picture of the Year'
    The Academy Award for Best Picture should go to the film that will stand the test of time. The award should go to a film that will resonate with audiences for decades to come; a film that we can all collectively look back on and say that was truly one of the best films that came out that year. A film worthy of being honored and remembered.Unfortunately, that is not always the case.
  • 50 Shades of Grey Hits Record Breaking Numbers. Why?
    Although Rt's reviewers gave this film a rotten 26%, the film hit record breaking numbers the first weekend released. It grossed more than 81.7 million on it's weekend release. Which trumped Twilight's respectable 69.6 million. Most people (critics) thought the film wouldn't catch that much due to the demographic. I say that is just nonsense. Of course the film would catch.
  • 8 Alternative Country Songs That Just Might Restore Your Faith In The Genre
    I grew up listening to country music. And I used to really enjoy it. I'm not sure though if it's just because I got older, or country music in general has changed so much, but now I hate it, by and large. For almost a solid decade now, I have not been able to listen to any of it. It basically makes my ears hurt.
