Focus (Film Review)

BY RYAN MILOWICKI You might not guess from my penchant for terrible comedies, but I do rather enjoy movies that make me think. There’s something unique to the medium of film which allows a story to veil important details while setting the table for climactic and game-changing revelations.

Ryan’s Predictions for the 2015 Oscars

BY RYAN MILOWICKI The Best Picture marathon was an absolute blast, and today we get the added benefit of having the Oscars! It’s now time for me to go to work and publicly lay my cards out on the table. I’m tempted to throw in a few more upset picks than I ultimately did, but […]

BY RYAN MILOWICKI Has 2014 been a banner year for female artists on the Billboard Hot 100? In several conspicuous ways, absolutely. But in many other ways, the world of popular music is still one ruled mostly by males, despite the convincing façade shown in recent months. Several statistics would seem to suggest a surge […]
