Rock of Ages

Rock of Ages follows a small town girl (Julianne Hough) as she ventures into the grimy, sinful streets of Los Angeles during the height of rock n’ roll. Along the way she falls in love with the city boy (Diego Boneta), meets the rock legend oozing sex, filthy music, and sex (Tom Cruise), and essentially finds out starting from nothing in Los Angeles—even if you look like Hough—is not easy.

As such, my viewing of Atlantis: The Lost Empire was altered by my background studying Linguistics. So, subjectively, Atlantis came across as potentially more enjoyable than upon an objective viewing. Continue reading

Season in Review: Game of Thrones Season One

I have made many sad pop culture references that embarrass me and diminish my opinion, but I am about to make the worst one yet. As Kim Zolciak* from The Real Housewives of Atlanta attempted to sing, “don’t be tardy for the party.” For Game of Thrones I was late to the bloodshed, but very satisfied that I have arrived.
