Robocop for Charity: Your move, creep!

In the dystopian future of 1987, Detroit has seen better days. Good thing the Omni Consumer Products Corporation has a way to brighten our days and clean up the mean streets. Part man, part machine, but all cop. RoboCop is the new wave of the future. Invoking memories from our younger days, RoboCop is one of those films that you can’t help but love. Despite its flaws it spawned a massive franchise and has entered the “geekdom” as a classic science fiction “must-see” for all newcomers. Officer Anne Lewis, portrayed by Nancy Allen in all three RoboCop films, set a new standard for women action heroes. Tough, feminine, characters who...

Iron Man 3 : With A Vengeance

“I am Iron Man.” Well, not me personally. But I am familiar with the character of Tony Stark (billionaire, playboy, and philanthropist) who is in fact, Iron Man.  Marvel Studios latest addition to the cinematic universe premiered in U.S. theaters and took the box office by storm with a $175 million opening weekend. The second sequel to 2008’s “Iron Man” that helped cement Robert Downey Jr. into the heart of geekdom, brings RDJ back after the events of last year’s all-star mash up, “The Avengers.” So how is Tony holding up after New York? Not so well, from the trailers we know the man in the can is having trouble...

The Value of Humans

Around the time I started working at UCLA, I made a decision to start helping people if I could. I still never carry cash because I find digital money more convenient. So when I’m walking into Wendy’s and someone asks me for change because they are saving up for some french fries,...

Magic Mike: A gift to men Jul17

Magic Mike: A gift to men

Most of you probably have heard of the “guilty pleasure” movie that opened a few weeks ago. Magic Mike stars Channing Tatum, Matthew McConaughey, The Werewolf Dude from True Blood (Joe Manganiello), Bryce Larkin (Matt Bomer) and wrestler Kevin Nash as strippers. Now most men would instantly dismiss the idea of seeing such a movie, however there are benefits to watching oiled and glittered men dance around mostly naked for 110 minutes. This is an explanation of why men should be grateful such a movie exists and is currently in theaters across the country. Why did I go see this? I’m spending my summer in Kansas and the majority of my...
