2 men 1 movie: ‘Transcendence’ gives viewers complex plot, impressive camera work

Ethan’s Take: Technology is advancing every day, and “Transcendence” gives viewers a look into the extremes of where those advancements could go. If technology is your thing, you might love “Transcendence.” Everyone else will enjoy the beautiful cinematography, assuming they can look past the intricate plot. Scientist Will Castor (Johnny Depp) is a genius who, among other scientists […]

That’s What She Said: Dating norms can, should be broken

   Women are just as capable of asking men out as men are at asking women.    Nowhere is it written that a woman can’t ask a man out on a date.    In most high schools, there are dances where the girls get to ask the guy, and it’s the accepted culture. No one […]

2 Men 1 Movie: ‘Divergent’ overcomes slow plot with cinematography, characters

Jordan’s Take: “Divergent” is a mix of “The Hunger Games” and “Inception.” The film starts with a basic overview of the world the main character, Beatrice “Triss” Prior (Shailene Woodley), lives in. A wall defends the city in which she lives from any unknown outsiders. This is why it reminded me of “The Hunger Games.” […]

‘Non-Stop’ thrilling, well-made

“Non-Stop” is an action-packed thriller set in an interesting context that keeps you guessing. The movie is set in an airplane, which gives an interesting twist for a suspenseful thriller. “Non-Stop” has the same suspense and setting found in “Flightplan” with the action and excitement from “Taken.” Maybe it is just Liam Neeson’s presence that […]

App obsessions deprive productivity

   “Flappy Bird,” “Candy Crush Saga,” “Fruit Ninja” and “Angry Birds” are addictive, pointless games.    Mobile phones have shifted the American culture. The Internet, social media, video games and more are now available in your pocket. That access has given people the need to be entertained at all times.    If we aren’t looking […]

2 Men 1 Movie: “I, Frankenstein” unexpectedly engaging

Jordan’s Take “I, Frankenstein” exceeds expectations with a twist on an old classic tale. Mary Shelley wrote the well-known novel “Frankenstein” about a mad scientist who created an animated human being nearly 200 years ago. Flash forward to today, and we find director Stuart Beattie taking a more modern spin of the classic, gothic novel. […]
