What makes a piece of content a television show, a movie, a YouTube clip? It's not a new discourse. It's something that many (including little old moi) have discussed, dissected and drafted articles a...
Last night I watched one of my favourite movies, A Face in the Crowd. Favourite not in terms of feel-good, but unsettling. This 1957 movie by Elia Kazan did not win many accolades then because it was...
I believe that if anyone could ever duplicate "the experience" of fantasy sports, and find a way to apply it to other genres outside of sports, it could be a huge success.

Relationships are messy, and sometimes love sucks. You won't always be 22 and carefree and riding on a train through Europe, wondering if you should doodle in your journal or take a nap. The movie Before Midnight understands that long-term love never comes easy, and romance isn't always about long walks in a Viennese park.
Roger Ebert was an honest critic. He was there for the movies. How many others can say the same? At the end, he became as big as the actors and directors he profiled. He was the Trailer before all the trailers. He was the Internet before the web. He was TV when it was still television. Something about him was more familiar and more popular than his co-hosts. Something about his opinion mattered to you. So, I'll say it again, because I really mean it...RIP Roger Ebert. Nobody was better.
