Matthew Razak's personal picks for the best movies of 2017

The 300 Week 1: Let's Get This Party Started

Welcome to the first installment of The 300, a weekly feature chronicling my attempt to watch 300 movies in theaters in 2018. Why am I doing this? Part of it is just to see if I can and to get away from my laptop. Another part of it is to r...

Review: Black Mirror (Season 4)

We live in a time of fear. Fear of other people, fear of our government. We’re afraid of where we are, but more than that, we are terrified of where we are going. We can hardly predict what will happen in a given year, and technology ...
