Season 3 of ‘House of Cards’ lacks dramatic quality

    The latest entry in the tale of Frank Underwood changed the “House of Cards” formula, meaning more character building and less political “thrill” so to speak. Season three presented new trials and tribulations for everyone’s favorite TV politician. With Frank becoming the President of the United States at the end of season two we knew his…

2015 and the return of pop punk

2015 will be the year of the flannel-wearing and pizza-loving. Anticipation has been rising among pop punk listeners since last year when pop punk princes All Time Low and Blink-182 revealed they’d be releasing albums in early 2015. Other less well-known (but just as talented) bands, like The Story So Far and The Wonder Years…

#Fest Preview: Curtis Williams

Atlanta-based rapper Curtis Williams is gaining traction in the hip-hop scene, and he’s got a chance to prove his potential in front of thousands of wild, drunk, screaming college students. Time will tell. But with his partying-stoner persona, I like his chances. Initially a part of the hip-hop collective Two-9, Williams recently released the mixtape…

“Gone Girl” graces movie-goers with Affleck’s bare booty (and partial insanity)

For those who read Gillian Flynn’s book and for…

Scarred for life: the scariest books from our childhood

It’s Halloween, and all we can think about are all the mild horror YA books that built character, but also shattered our little juvenile souls. We read about possessed dolls, vampire bunnies and teachers, ghouls in basements and dudes hanging from nooses – yeah, totally age-appropriate (thanks, R.L. Stine, for making that a thing?). Read ahead and get…

SpeakeasyENT: The ultimate middle school playlist

There’s a lot of things we wish we could change about our middle school years. The hair gel. The cyberbullying. The Xanga usernames. Those stupid purses with the little mermaid sparkles all over them. But the music? No regrets. We’re already embarrassed for buying “The Motto” on iTunes, but we have nothing but fond memories…

SpeakeasyENT: Our favorite pop culture bunny wabbits

Perhaps we’ve eaten one too many marshmallow Peeps this week, but with Easter right around the corner, we thought there was no better way to celebrate than sharing our favorite… bunnies… throughout cinema. Call us crazy, but there’s a surprising amount of carrot-lovin’, cotton-tailed fun across all genres, from animation to horror to whatever “Space…
