It’s safe to say that most people have heard of F. Scott Fitzgerald as one of the most notable literary figures of the 20th century and American history in general. His famous 1925 novel, “The Great Gatsby” headlines required reading lists for high schools everywhere. Film portrayals featuring Robert Redford, Mia Farrow and Leonardo DiCaprio have only served to elevate both the book and author’s fame.

With anthology shows only becoming more prominent in recent years thanks to series like “Black Mirror” and “Love, Death, and Robots,” it seems as fit a time as any in the television landscape for “The Twilight Zone” to burst back onto the scene. With its first episode “The Comedian” — ironically airing on April Fools — the classic returns with as much intrigue and social commentary as ever.
On Sunday night, rapper Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed while leaving his clothing store in Los Angeles. The news was devastating to the music community, which resulted in an outpouring of sympathies to his family — especially his two children and girlfriend, Lauren London.

HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is without question the most popular television series in history, spanning across the entire world to become a cultural phenomenon and milestone in entertainment history. Many fans of the show admit how they usually have a distaste for the fantasy genre, alluding to how the show deviates from traditional fantasy stories and is itself a refreshing and unique take on the genre.
Throughout music history, few bands and acts have been able maintain a level of consistent success as well as Breaking Benjamin has. Enduring its own share of struggles, founder/lead vocalist Ben Burnley has reorganized, assembling a new incarnation of the legendary hard rock group. Now a five-piece well-oiled machine, many fans, critics and even Burnley himself feel the band is heavier and more complete than in the past.
The Marvel cinematic universe is one of the biggest franchises in entertainment history, with each installment generating hundreds of millions of dollars, sometimes even exceeding $1 billion as in the case of “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War” from 2018.
Rico Nasty is an American rapper whose shows are a performance of ferocity that demand attention and participation. She can be many things on stage: caustic, forceful, witty and empathetic. She engages the audience with calls to a mosh pit and embraces star-struck fans. Rico Nasty has disarmingly powerful stage presence, and her performance is a celebration of her journey toward self-confidence.
With its no-nonsense tagline, “Getting Straight A’s. Giving Zero F’s,” a double dose of comedic cockiness and cinematic audaciousness collide rather vividly in Olivia Wilde’s “Booksmart.” Despite a cliche premise involving teenagers and the costly efforts to touch the cusp of social popularity, “Booksmart” utilizes its self-awareness in a post-Superbad world to take the generic tropes fronted by its predecessors and carves an identity that not only defies mediocrity but generates an entirely new nuance altogether.
“Greener Grass” is an absurdist comedy directed, written and led by Jocelyn DeBoer and Dawn Luebbe. Originally a short film, DeBoer and Luebbe turned it into a full-length narrative feature film due to its positive reception.
The horror genre has become more appreciated within the last decade or so, with films like “It," “The Witch," “A Quiet Place," “Get Out” and “The Babadook” able to terrify audiences while simultaneously examining important topics surrounding human nature.
Near the end of the 2000s, comedy was changing: live-action TV shows “The Office” and “Parks and Recreation” were replacing laugh-track driven action and loud personalities with awkward silences and bumbling characters. A mostly-hidden gem that may have passed many people up in this era was the HBO show “Flight of the Conchords.” Starring Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie as fictionalized versions of themselves, the show sees the duo’s escapades in New York City trying to find an American audience against their New Zealand background. Each episode featured a couple of songs by the group — who released 2 studio albums, an EP, a compilation of their radio show from BBC and a previous live album.
Marvel is notorious for its hidden social and political commentary — from the creation of X-Men during the Civil Rights Movement, to “Black Panther” making a splash amidst rising racial tensions and the Black Lives Matter movement. “Captain Marvel” is no different.
The horror film “The Curse of La Llorona” premiered at SXSW last Friday. The showing began with a “limpia” — a type of spiritual cleansing — which consisted of women burning sage as the crowd filed into the Paramount Theatre. After a brief introduction from director, Michael Chavez, a curandero or spiritual healer came out on stage to rid us of negative energy in preparation for the film.
I’ve seen several publications in early reviews call “Hypnospace Outlaw” a great “detective game,” a topic which I’ve always personally been interested in as a sort of pet genre. Very few games even attempt the daunting task of conveying a “detective fantasy” of sorts through mechanics and of that small group, there are even fewer who do it well. Laying out clues, planning out lots of possible solutions, allowing for easy process-of-elimination, keeping the player from getting stuck while also not leading them along — it’s a balancing act I respect.
I spent my Thursday night at Stubb’s — one of the largest stages at SXSW. The first of five sets started off with Durand Jones & The Indications. The Indiana natives fuse funk and soul, heavily drawing on the 70s with complex vocal runs and horns. Jones’ main goal: get the crowd moving. Picking up and slowing down from smooth, longing tracks like “Is It Any Wonder?” to soulful “Long Way Home,” the setlist showed off the band’s range to a mostly unfamiliar crowd.
Three blank screens lined Majestic’s stage last Thursday night, and what played in front of them were vastly different, unpredictable movies, like you couldn’t choose one and decided to watch all three.
