The Handshake: a Eulogy

The handshake may never return, shields and guards remaining up. And in a time where we are being driven apart -- politically, socially, and economically -- failing to extend a hand and touch one another, as a last remnant of the seal between us, seems like something we will miss. → Read More

The Handshake: a Eulogy

The handshake may never return, shields and guards remaining up. And in a time where we are being driven apart -- politically, socially, and economically -- failing to extend a hand and touch one another, as a last remnant of the seal between us, seems like something we will miss. → Read More

Useful idiocracy

American media are playing fools to the Chinese Communist Party's propaganda machine. → Read More

Millennial economic woes spell long-term problems for everyone

Declining and shifting interests in things like golf, dinner dates, movie theaters, cruises, and homeownership have all seen a millennial realignment. → Read More

'Vice' is a filibusteringly long and belabored biopic

Like most politicians, “Vice” overpromises and underdelivers in a filibusteringly long film. → Read More

'Mary Poppins Returns' is not supercalifragilisticexpialidocious

“Mary Poppins Returns” is an uninventive, nostalgic update to the original. While the star power and breezy plot might be enough to satisfy most moviegoers, closer inspection reveals a patched kite that could have flown much higher. → Read More

You won't like 'The Crimes of Grindelwald,' but you need to see it anyway

Overall, “The Crimes of Grindelwald” is more misdemeanor storytelling than any feloniously compelling filmmaking. → Read More

China Poses the Biggest Threat to the U.S. Elections

Trump needs to ditch his cellphone — China is listening

The Chinese and Russians are spying on President Trump. According to U.S. intelligence agencies, foreign spies have accessed and eavesdropped on calls from Trump's personal iPhone. → Read More

Book review: We all could do more with Less

Less is a simple story of spoony elegance. In his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, Andrew Sean Greer crafts a rare humorous novel for the Pulitzer committee and for readers looking to take a morose, comedic journey. → Read More

Book an early checkout for 'Bad Times at the El Royale'

"Bad Times at the El Royale" isn’t necessarily a bad time as much as it is an unfulfilling experience. The film is as if the plots of Girls by Emma Cline and "The Cabin in the Woods" came together in a once glamorous hotel outside of Reno. → Read More

'A Star Is Born' and Bradley Cooper becomes an instant triple threat: Singing, directing, and acting

An octave contains 12 notes that repeat over and over, and since the beginning of time, artists have tinkered and rearranged them to create their own voice, their own mark. Much in the same way, with the two hours, 20 minutes moviegoers allot him, Bradley Cooper delivers a masterful cinematic ballad in his first directing foray. → Read More

'First Man' propels us toward more giant leaps for mankind

Former President John F. Kennedy said, “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard.” → Read More

Having outside counsel at Thursday's Kavanaugh spectacle is not 'cynical, sexist and cowardly'

The (metaphorical) case of United States v. Kavanaugh begins Thursday. Alleged sexual assault victim Christine Blasey Ford is set to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee, as will Judge Brett Kavanaugh. On Wednesday, Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, announced that Rachel Miller, an Arizona special victims unit prosecutor, would conduct the examination of the witnesses before the committee. → Read More

'White Boy Rick' gives viewers a high, but ultimately leaves them unfulfilled

Our prisons are filled to the brim with inmates serving time for drug offenses. "White Boy Rick" is a film that illustrates the modernly relatable problems and injustices of Ronald Reagan-era drug laws, but with a selective, half-baked, and white historical gloss. → Read More

Regulating social media giants is a road to Big Tech tyranny

Last week, President Trump tweeted about potentially exploring regulation for companies such as Google, citing a report that claimed searching for “Trump News” pulls up disproportionately left-leaning results. Seemingly overnight, some conservatives like Laura Ingraham have made an about-face from… → Read More

'Operation Finale' makes viewers balance justice against vengeance

Last week, the United States booted a Nazi war crimes perpetrator from our shores. The timing is perfect, as Hollywood releases another opportunity for moviegoers to embark on another Nazi hunting mission in "Operation Finale." → Read More

Why Facebook’s New ‘Reputation Scores’ Could Be a Freedom Killer

What should we do about it? → Read More

Pope Francis leads on the death penalty, and conservatives should follow

Pope Francis has altered Catholic teaching by declaring the death penalty an attack on human dignity. The Vatican is correct and conservative politicians should work to purge this lethal tool from states' arsenals. → Read More

4 ways Trump can win at the North Korea summit

President Trump landed in Singapore on Monday for a summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un. While already historic by the mere meeting alone, there is real work to be done to secure a safer United States and Asia-Pacific region for our allies. Here are four goals that the president should have for the meeting: → Read More
