The inspiring irony of The Disaster Artist

Tommy Wiseau may not have struck gold with The Room, and he certainly won't be remembered for his acting chops (the lack thereof, most likely), but The Disaster Artist affirms that his spirit and dedication have subconsciously produced a film far greater than anything he could have ever dreamed of....
Bill Burr, it's funny cause it's true | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Bill Burr, it’s funny cause it’s true

Stand-up comedy is without a doubt the best vocation for edgy individuals and borderline assholes who like to speak their witty minds. Which category Bill Burr falls into is for everyone to decide for themselves, but one thing is certain – hardly anyone takes as much advantage of this unprecedented freedom of speech as he does....
Maria Bamford Lady Dynamite

The surreal genius of Maria Bamford’s Lady Dynamite

Maria Bamford's critically acclaimed Netflix series, Lady Dynamite is easily one of the most forward-thinking comedy shows currently running. However, beyond the shows surreal aesthetic lies a message of perseverance that's good medicine for anyone who's ever had the odds stacked against them. ...
Why the return of 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' was a big letdown | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Why the return of ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ was a big letdown

When Larry David announced in the summer of 2016 that Curb Your Enthusiasm would return for its first season on HBO since 2011, it was cause for rejoicing for fans of the groundbreaking comedy. But for a number of reasons the new season felt like a sitcom in its final throes and past its prime, like the subpar later years of How I Met Your Mother or The League....
How sad music makes the bitter feel sweet | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

How sad music makes the bitter feel sweet

There are times when art makes us experience emotions and ideas that we might not have even experienced in real life. At other times, it becomes a dreamcatcher, bringing to the surface the subtle thoughts from the depths of our minds and the nuanced feelings from the bottom of our hearts, and capturing them for us to understand. There is hardly any other art form where this beautiful power is as palpable as it is in music, and more specifically - sad music....
The Justice League has arrived but Thor still reigns supreme | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

The Justice League has arrived but Thor still reigns supreme

The Justice League is here (and believe me, I am here for Wonder Woman) but Thor is the true ruler of the box office. If you're trying to decide between Justice League and Thor: Ragnarok this holiday weekend, and you want the most bang for your buck, the latter will leave you feeling just dandy about spending ten bucks of your hard-earned cash and chuckling all the way home....
Star Wars and Disney, five years later | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Star Wars and Disney, five years later

Looking back at the first five years of the marriage between Disney and Star Wars reveals a largely positive coupling. Not every move or decision they've made concerning the franchise has been universally loved and there's always the concern of oversaturation, but at any rate, the return of Star Wars has been welcome, and not only because there isn’t a Jar Jar Binks in sight. It’s just plain better to have Star Wars in our lives than not....

Are horror movies getting more sophisticated?

Over the years the horror genre and its movies have continued to get smarter as audiences have stopped playing into established tropes. In the past few years the genre has really seemed to have reached a new level, in which they can really make comments on society, humanity, and more through its framework. What used to be a throwaway genre is now molding into something sophisticated and truly special....
Come on now, Netflix's Death Note wasn't that bad | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Come on now, Netflix’s Death Note wasn’t that bad

Sometimes an adaption can actually work if we don't get too serious. We don't need to over-think the series or the hundreds of episodes that came before it. By cutting out large chunks of the backstory and mythology, Death Note's not entirely beholden to the original work. This gives us a fresh representation of a first-encounter creature feature, and the film's strength lies in building on the source material without going overly in depth. Instead it relies on grounding the film on its core concepts and simplifying the plot just enough to engage....
Why trance is as real as any music | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Why trance is as real as any music

Mediocrity, whatever form it comes in, is rarely accompanied by large fluctuations in opinions because it simply can’t provoke enough investment and emotion. Hardly any other music genre falls on both ends of the love-and-hate spectrum the same way electronic music's most melodic and stirring manifestations - trance....

Synthesizers took the '80s by storm - changing the landscape of popular music and pop culture at large in the process. As musicians embraced the emerging technology, their own sound and style transformed into everything we remember the era for....

Why do people love Pennywise? | LIVING LIFE FEARLESS

Why do people love Pennywise?

Yes, Pennywise is scary as hell, but the clown itself serves a purpose for the story and taps directly into our shared emotions and inner children, all while being an absolute spectacle to behold. And because of that, we love him....
