This is going to get long. If you feel youve already read too much, Ill tell you now how reading this would have made you feel:
“Man, I agreed with some of what he wrote but other parts really pissed me off. But, it sounds like if we just compromise and help meet others needs, everything might just work out.”
So, straws are a big deal right now, huh? Heres how it affects me personally:
Well what do we do about this? From the sounds of it, there are several variables at play here and a multi-part solution might be the only way forward. Fortunately, as a social media user, I am qualified to make these decisions for everyone! Here we go…
There you have it, the straw debate has been solved. No, its not perfect. Yes, its going to take some work. But its not impossible for people to enjoy a Coke with their friends without destroying the only planet we have.
The Brewers had a big week, moving up 4 spots and gaining almost 300 points. Luckily for the Orioles there was only one place for them to fall as they lost nearly 400 points.

In some ways, this is like The Hangover with ladies. Scarlett Johansson plays the main lady, Jess, who is being thrown a massive bachelorette party in Miami with 4 college friends. Things go a little off the rails when a male stripper is accidentally killed in front of the girls.
Sometimes, these kinds of raunchy comedies can be a lot of fun. Other times, the idea falls flat and there aren’t any good jokes to fall back on. This one is kind of middle-of-the-road. It was mostly fun with some inventive jokes surrounding the side plot with Jess’ groom-to-be, Peter (Paul W. Downs). I had more fun with the fear-turned-road-trip of the Peter character than the murder-turned-cover-up high jinks of the main plot.
Was it funny enough? Yeah.
This is the third in the Purge movie series, which depicts a horrific “future” America where an annual holiday known as The Purge is used to “cleanse” the people for the rest of the year. Basically, on Purge day, all laws are suspended for 12 hours and people just go around killing each other. Funny thing is, no one mentions anything about insider trading or tax fraud.
Election Year is almost entirely about Senator Roan (Elizabeth Mitchell), who lost her entire family in a Purge, and has made it her mission to win the presidency and end the annual Purge. With a sudden twist in policy, no one is exempt from the Purge, not even government officials. Senator Roan’s security team, led by Leo Barnes (Frank Grillo), must scramble to fortify her home for the impending unknown of the deadly night. Leading in the presidential polls, it’s clear the senator will be targeted.
Another subplot involves a convenience store owner, Joe Dixon (Mykelti Williamson), who loses his Purge insurance due to rate increases and decides to do whatever it takes to save his shop from looters.
Of course, everything goes wrong with the senator and Leo must get her to safety with help from Joe and a Purge EMT, Laney Rucker (Betty Gabriel).
The blood and gore are definitely extreme. I like the relevance to the current state of the world, although that also adds a depressing element.
Told through found footage, this horror movie shows a Maryland seaside community’s deadly July 4th outbreak of a mutant parasite in the water supply.
The host of the footage is a fresh-faced news reporter (Kether Donahue) who witnessed the events firsthand and managed to survive without being infected.
The gore is definitely top-notch, but the “story” is rather lacking. It’s literally just a series of scenes strung together, and the characters are just people doing things in the scenes. I don’t care about them and none of it matters.
Generally, found footage movies are gimmicky and make me nauseous from the seizure-inducing camera work. This one is better than other ones I’ve seen, but only slightly. Why can’t they have one or two characters that are fleshed out to give the audience a meaningful connection? Why isn’t there a cliche scientist character who figures out the problem and works on engineering a solution to kill all the parasites? I probably would complain about that stuff, too, but at least it would get more tacos.
This new feature film adaptation of Stephen King’s 1986 novel of the same name takes a much different approach than the 1990 TV mini-series. The dark and gritty tone make it one of the creepiest movies of the last several years.
If you are unfamiliar with the story by now, there is something wrong with you. Basically, a group of kids band together in an attempt to stop a horrific clown creature from terrorizing and eventually murdering them.
The acting is considerably good given that the majority of the cast is child actors. The writing manages to solidify and condense the first half of a very large book. It never felt rushed or improperly paced.
If you like clowns and being scared, you will really enjoy this movie.
