Stay tuned.

Five seasons and four years later, and there’s a sort of quiet ease into which the MTV sitcom template-setter that is Awkward presents its fifth year: not with a senior-year bang, but with a whimper as bittersweet and disappointing as the gang’s handful of failed pranks dotted throughout the premiere. Its stars still shine and its drama still crackles with a heightened hilarity that only a show with this high level of acronyms-to-actual words could muster, but its lost some of its acerbic spark that surprised everyone back in 2011.
Jenna and co. aren’t as ribald and breezingly candid, the writing feels more like an interpretation of Awkward than actually Awkward, and the decision to continue last year’s most interminable plots instead of just tying them up in the prologue and catapulting the team into something new, all lends the »

What is generally considered as a dying genre of late, poker films have seen their popularity dwindle in recent years. With big budget Hollywood films like the recently released Paramount Pictures flick, The Gambler flopping amid stiff competition from Unbroken and Into The Woods, many have questioned its staying power in today’s movie landscape.
As the movie may well have drawn in a crowd from the exasperated niche, the film doesn’t just rely on this audience for viewing figures alone. Although centered round a poker table, there’s very little poker play to contend with in this crime, horror thriller.
The film’s lead character, Stan Jeter played by Beau Mirchoff is an upstart cop »

As the masked man begins torturing the young detective, the stories told »
