Glee-Tarded:
A Glee Episode Review

Our new TV Dork, Kathleen tackles Glee and tackles it hard. No show on TV can make me feel such an array of emotions with a single episode... Anger, embarrassment, disbelief, and nausea to name a few. Let me start off by saying, I get why people enjoy this show. It’s light and it’s fun, the characters are endearing, the musical numbers are interesting, and the guest stars are huge. That being said, this show makes me want to punch a baby.

Vanquish - Platinum Games

Vanquish Review

War has always been very popular theme in video games, which makes sense since guns and killing things are also very popular in games. Halo, Call of Duty, Gears of War and Battlefield have found a comfortable niche with their typically melodramatic takes on all sorts of conflict. From the box art alone, Vanquish looks an awful lot like it’s trying to add yet another 'androidgynous' protagonist to the pile, but the truth of the matter is much deeper than that.

Cool It Review

The new documentary Cool It from acclaimed filmmaker Ondi Timoner is a breath of fresh air for anyone sick and tired of the fear-based approach to fighting climate change. With the help of Danish environmentalist Bjørn Lomborg, Timoner’s Cool It acts as a rebuttal of sorts to Al Gore‘s documentary An Inconvenient Truth.

Like the previous trailers for the film this one is a visual treat, but what makes this one different is that it finally reveals the plot of the film.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 - Daniel Radcliffe

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1: Review

The first part of the climax to the Harry Potter series is much different than its predecessors. It features whole new kinds of depression, anxiety and an anger that the previous films simply did not have. In the past books and films, Harry and his crew had to overcome obstacles and that was that, even though they knew something more was coming. There were epic battle scenes, and other scenes that showed Potter striving for some illusive goal. This time around, Harry, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasely are alone and confused in a dark and sinister world.
