- The Office Recap: ‘Customer Loyalty’ (Season 9, Episode 12)
Posted on 25 Jan 2013 in Movies & TV, Television
The episode itself was fine and comprised of several small storylines, all of which worked. The title, “Customer Loyalty”, refers once again to Dwight’s plot. Upon learning that Darryl is also leaving Dunder Mifflin for Athlead, he freaks out and accuses Jim of trying to poach everyone from the staff.

- The Office Recap: ‘Suit Warehouse’ (Season 9, Episode 11)
Posted on 18 Jan 2013 in Movies & TV, Television
Moreover, it brings back something that has been dreadfully missing over the past few years — actually working and interacting with clients. Last year, this element was virtually absent as the show’s idea of work seemed to be characters holding the phone or crying about “quotas.”

- Movie Review: Promised Land
Posted on 28 Dec 2012 in Movies, Movies & TV
In certain movies, there comes a single moment that completely changes one’s opinion of it. It can be due to an unnecessary twist, an out-of-character action, or the film completely switching gears, but really any individual thing can cause viewers to re-evaluate how they view a movie. I will not spoil Gus Van Sant’s new movie Promised Land, but, suffice it to say, it has one of those, which I will call Moment X for purposes of this review.
- Early Review: Warm Bodies
Posted on 18 Dec 2012 in Movies, Movies & TV
The latest attempt to capitalize on the zombie craze, Warm Bodies tries to provide a different spin on the genre by presenting a love story between a zombie and a human.
- The Worst High Profile Christmas Movies Ever Made
Posted on 17 Dec 2012 in Movies, Movies & TV
The tone for the entire film is mostly depressed, angry, pessimistic, and confused, which is best evidenced by Fred himself, a repo man who steals Christmas presents for his own apartment. He is a total jerk, and more of a depressed burnout than the fun-loving slacker that the trailer makes it seem.
- Movie Review: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Posted on 15 Dec 2012 in Movies, Movies & TV
Seeking to reclaim their home and treasure from the dragon Smaug, the group heads to their former home Erebor and encounter orcs, giant spiders, shapeshifting men, and, of course, Gollum (the scene-stealing Andy Serkis, reprising his role).
- Movie Review: On The Road
Posted on 14 Dec 2012 in Movies, Movies & TV
Salles treats the material with a needless seriousness. It brings the bodies of the chapters of the book, but not their souls. It shows sex-and-drug fueled parties without imbuing them with the spirit of those moments and thus they become very repetitive and boring.
