I'm Dara Wittman, I writing this just to say hi to everybody. I'm currently a college student studying broadcasting. Although my dream job is to be a film and TV critic. I know this isn't the best career choice but who knows. Anyway I was thinking I could start reviewing stuff here, so if anybody has any movies, or TV shows or even a broadway show they would like me to review please let me know. Also if you want to be my friend and just talk about...well…Continue
As I was completing my Film Literature assignment, I realized that there are many films, books, music, etc. that don't have fandom of their own, but they really should. This means, essentially, that these things do not have memes, YouTube fan videos, or fanfiction, but they're so totally awesome that it's almost a shame that people don't know what, or who, they are. Here are some examples:
Places In The Heart- This is a film that came out in 1984, with Sally Field starring…Continue
So the other day, I was watching a movie and the mom came in to read stories to her kids before they went to bed, and I was thinking about how common and picturesque that image is to us. I don’t know how common this activity is, but it never really happened for me. The closest thing I can remember is one of my parents reading Bible stories to the family in the evening, and that certainly didn’t happen every night.
But there were stories I do remember, stories…Continue

Last year I had a teacher who assigned a compare/contrast essay. We got to choose the topic and I'd had one brewing for over a year at that point. So I wrote it.
I was hesitant to post it online, simply because I'm never sure of my works quality, but my teach (a notoriously and statistically proven hard grader) gave it an 8.75 on the 9 point scale, so I figured "What the heck?" This also seemed like the type of essay that would appeal to a nerdy crowd.

Humans have been fascinated with the idea of capturing imagination through the medium of moving images, arguably, throughout our entire evolution, with works such as the Bayeux tapestry attempting to capture the movement of battle. With the invention of the zoopraxiscope by Eadweard Muybridge in 1879, humans got their first real taste of animated images. At…

Yesterday I was watching Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. It a brilliant movie and I know it’s based off the book but it was still really great. There was a seine were he’s wearing a gas mask and I burst out, "ARE YOU MY MUMMY!?", then I doubled over by the fact of how creepy it was. Besides that it was a really good movie and I recommend it to the few others who stumble upon this post.
In other news I went to Sky high which is a place devoted to everything and anything…Continue

Hank and Michael make some really disgusting and really amazing cookies, and then they play Hungry Hungry Hippos to decide who eats which cookie. All in honor of the release of a great movie (based on a great book.)
If you haven't seen the Hunger Games, I heartily suggest it...that is, as long as you read it first :-p

Listen, Jena, it turns out Charles Dickens’ A Tale of Two Cities was a key inspiration for The Dark Knight Rises. Seeing as the 200th anniversary of Dickens’ birth is this coming February 7, I thought it’d be nice to explore the themes Christopher Nolan might be drawing on.
It’s clear that Gotham explodes with civil unrest in the film. The trailer shows scenes of a wealthy house being raided, the people inside it dragged down the stairs and…Continue

I was taking a break from studing for exams and decided to watch the new documentary Life in a Day. I really enjoyed it, but there was one question that really got me thinking. What do you fear? The first thing that came to mind was snakes. I can not stand snakes. They are just not for me. But after the documentary was done, that question still bothered me. Some how my answer wasn't good enough. Maybe it was because my mind didn't want to go back to studying or maybe I just…Continue
