Demon Slayer Season 2 Is In Full Swing, And That Means More Crying, Slashing, And Booty-Smacking

Season 2 of "Demon Slayer" is finally in full swing with the premiere of the episode "Sound Hashira Tengen Uzui." Because the season technically began with seven episodes that just rehashed the events of the "Demon Slayer: Mugen Train" movie, this episode is technically episode eight of season 2. However, this episode marks the beginning of the much anticipated Entertainment District Arc, meaning it's also an episode 1. If you find that a little confusing, well, welcome to the wonderful world of...

There's something equally inspiring and infuriating about great artists who find success across multiple mediums. We've seen this in 2021 with actor and composer Lin-Manuel Miranda's critically acclaimed directorial debut "tick, tick... Boom!," and we saw it decades earlier with the films of Bob Fosse. Known primarily as a choreographer with a provocative and specific style of dance, Fosse went on to have a career as a film director characterized by a few misses and some really stellar hits. Fos...

"I remember...."

I remember something made me read this old blog post of mine, from 2013, when I had a little project going where I'd take one sentence from "The Great Gatsby" and present it for discussion, not in the context of the book as a whole, but purely as a sentence. I like to read on a sentence level, and this book has the best sentences.The sentence of the day was "I remember the fur coats of the girls returning from Miss This-or-That’s and the chatter of frozen breath and the hands waving overhead as ...

‘It’s time to bring out The Wiz!’ The wild return of the super soul musical

Its stage prequel, Wicked, has been running non-stop since 2003. But there is another, lesser-known spin-off from L Frank Baum’s original novel.

The Terminator 2 Alternate Ending That Would've Killed The Franchise

There's no denying that "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" is the best film in the entire franchise. Essentially inverting the character dynamics of the first film while continuing to flesh out details of the impending android apocalypse, "T2" might even hold water as one of the greatest sequels ever made. However, director James Cameron almost presented a very different film to 1991 audiences. Though it was ultimately left on the cutting room floor, the ending was at one point set on a saccharine not...
