If I controlled this year’s Oscars, the ballot would look quite different than it already looks. What follows is who I would nominate, as well as who I would pick to win the big prize (winners are in bold). Continue reading
I know, I know. It’s February. Don’t Top 10 Lists belong in December? I guess you could make that argument, but the fact of the matter is that I didn’t get to see a lot of 2014 movies until January or February. And, with the Oscars this Sunday, I’d say that the 2014 movie season isn’t officially over until then. So, this is the perfect time to finally release my Top 10 list for 2014. But, instead of making it a Top 10 list, I’m going to rank ALL the movies I saw this past year from worse to best. So, without further ado, HERE WE GO! Continue reading
Personally, 2014 has been a crazy year. The quick version of the story is that I graduated college, moved and started my first real world job. 2014 has also been a crazy year for pop culture. 2014 produced a lot of good things, and below you’ll find a list of my favorite of those good things.

With over half the year over, I figured it was a good time to look back and reflect on how this year in film is going so far. While I haven’t seen all the films I’d hoped to see at this point (I’m lacking 22 Jump Street, Boyhood, and Godzilla, among many others), I’ve seen my fair share, and decided to rank them in order from worst to best. All in all, most of the films I’ve seen this year have exceeded my expectations, and they have only heightened my expectations for the rest of the films of 2014. Continue reading
“I think an ordinary paper company like Dunder-Mifflin was a great subject for a documentary. There’s a lot of beauty in ordinary things. Isn’t that kind of the point?” -Pam
Say what you will about how the U.S. version of The Office ended, but I have to agree with Pam’s above quote from the series finale. Based on the U.K. series of the same name, The Office ran on NBC for nine seasons from 2005 to 2013. Its mockumentary style gave the audience the sense that they were following these ordinary people’s ordinary lives, yet the setting of the Dunder Mifflin Paper Company’s Scranton branch created an atmosphere that everything these characters did really did matter in the grand scheme of things.
Still, not everything was extraordinary about the ordinary, and some seasons and story lines were much better than others. With just over a year since the series finale of The Office aired, time has allowed the entire series (201 episodes in all…can you believe it?) to sink in. It’s now time to rank all nine seasons of the show from worst to best.
