Black Swan: A Sharp Wing to the Face

March 24, 2011 by


Black Swan in a Sentence: Extremely visceral and disorienting, like if a tearful Snow White sliced her own forearms with tin can tops while the Seven Dwarfs watched and whistled  “Heigh Ho.” Why I Almost Grew Black Wings: The pacing is highly innovative. Darren Aronofsky masterfully uses the first hour to screw with your senses, […]

Glee: Deep Fried Birthday Cake Ice Cream Sprinkled with Happiness

February 16, 2011 by


I didn’t want to watch Glee. In fact, I can say that I successfully and artfully dodged all the rabid exhortations from friends and family to watch the first season.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 in a sentence: The Noseless One Who Shall Not Be Named and Harry Potter have two very special, magical traits that distinguish them from all others in the Potter-Verse—both are very confused about how to destroy the other and very good at getting their compatriots killed.

There is an excellent chance that within the first 5 minutes of Scott Pilgrim versus the world, you turn to your non-existent significant other or another individual among your viewing party and utter 6 words better saved for Syfy Channel movies, Taylor Swift albums, and the New York Jets offense.  Those are, in no particular […]
