Memories are made of this.. 1983.. Mountains, Billie Jean and Flashdance.

It is 1983, and I am now 30 years old and more settled than I have ever been.

Smith’s Verdict: ***

Reviewed by Tanner Smith

It’s often that the final chapters of trilogies are usually the weakest (with a few exceptions, of course), with examples usually being “The Godfather Part III” and “Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi.” The possible answer as to why that’s usually the case is the filmmakers/storytellers played their cards too early and what brilliance they crafted before pale in comparison due to less innovation and so few new things to offer. 877 more words

Paris en fête, Paris en poème, Paris en chanson.

It’s been more than a week. A week of sorrow. A week of mourning.
A week of fear, too. And yet, a week of life, of joy, of culture, of support. 621 more words


Neil Young: Everybody's Rockin'

Doesn’t actually rock. He sticks too much to the 50s rock aesthetic that he adds no real fire to it. It’s very short. Not even an album. 24 minutes.
