Netflix’s You Pilot Review

If you know anything about me you know that I am enthralled with the concept of “love” and how that manifests can be from rooting for two celebrities to be together (Niley forever) or in my consumption of romcoms. So going into the series I was intrigued by the protagonist being not only a man but a fellow lover of the genre as well. I do wanna say that not every male who enjoys romantic movies including romantic comedies are secretly stalkers who obsess over strangers but within seeing the first episode I felt it did a great job of building up who Joe is and why he has his worldview.

VICE Review

This week I saw Adam McKay’s film VICE. Most known for his comedy classics Step Brothers, Anchorman & Talledega Nights he’s recently made a shift to bring his style to more serious topics. His film The Big Short earned him an Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay. This showed he could succeed out a Will Ferrell lead project and he’s continue to expand with his most recent film looking at Bush’s right hand man, Dick Cheney.

Student Athlete Review

The NCAA would have to take a serious look at the lie that is ‘student-athlete’ and find ways to properly compensate these players who risk injury while biding their time. Let’s hope change truly comes because right now these players are getting screwed. And they truly need to be properly compensated for there talents and by that I mean receiving percentages of those billion dollar March Madness and hundred million dollar apparel deals.

Superstore Review – Confessions of a Romantic Comedy Lover

Unlike HIMYM where Ted pines over Robin then when he finally gets her we see why and the series shows over again why they shouldn’t work out but then retcon the series to put them together again in the finale.

Or the original where Ross and Rachel pioneered the “will they, won’t they” story in network television.

This show just brings in new characters for Jonah and Amy to be with but the difference is there’s no foundation of the relationship other than friendship.

Their timing is never right and even when they’re given ways to get out of their relationships *cough Jonah cough* they chose to never risk it even with the prospect of love.
