November Offers Moviegoers A Much Needed Escape: Thoughts on Dr. Strange, The Accountant and Arrival (Don’t Worry, We Didn’t Spoil Anything!)

No matter what your views are on the recent U.S. election, we here at RiceBall want you to know that we will always provide an open and inclusive space for all. No matter what color you are, where you come from, what you believe in, or who you love….WE will always welcome and accept you. Nerds, non-nerds, UFOs, whomever! Always spread love over hate.


Sooo, it’s that time of the year where S.A.D has set in for most of us on the east coast, and in 2016 we’re finding it very hard to cope. Not only is it cold out, but it also gets dark at 4pm, holiday season is being forced down our throats (in the nauseating form of pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha), ANNND we’re still dealing with the results of a very emotional election season. I. AM. STRESSED. All I want to do these days is snuggle up on a couch somewhere (most likely as Bae’s inner spoon) and sip a hot, chocolate, possibly alcoholic drink. If you’re anything like me, you’re thinking “How the hell did we get here???” To be honest, I’m more than ready to be done and over with 2016. Worst. Year. Ever. And it’s not even frick’in over yet.

Ugh.

Slowly counting down to when I give the realest “Cheers” of my life on New Year’s Day to a bigger, better and brighter 2017 — I know, just keeping hope alive.

Although I haven’t been in the best of spirits all month, I can say that November movies have been ON POINT! I’ve unapologetically spent every weekend in the theater so far and there’s no stopping me. I’ve become a weekend theater bum, watching as many new movies as I can. It’s been worth it. My $10 have been very well spent, every time.

So, what did I watch? Well…

Black Mirror: Welcome to the Darkness

Happy New Month everyone, So I wanted to give you guys this post a while ago, but I’ve been so busy, but I wanted to talk to you guys about this new show I’ve been watching called Black Mirror. You might have heard of it these last few weeks. Now this is not a completely new show, Black Mirror is a UK based television show and has been around since 2011, but for some reason everyone has been going crazy over this series. Recently back in I believe September or August my friend she asked me if I’ve ever seen Black Mirror and that we  should binge watch it. I said I’ve never seen it, but I couldn’t find any trailers except for the season 3 trailer that came out early October which I will show later on. Me and my friend we wanted to binge the show for the season 3 premiere, now I cannot lie I saw the cover picture for the show and I said I’ve seen this title for this show a million times on Netflix and always skipped over it to watch another show, crazy how things come in full circle.

This is the Picture I always saw on Netflix, you have seen it also.

Now I know if you have heard about this show, you have heard that it is crazy, and bugged out especially episode 1 in Season 1, and that this show makes you never want to use social media again(even though we all still do). This show truly is eye opening and if you aren’t conscience of social media and everything that goes on with the government this show broadens your mind to start accepting maybe so called “conspiracy theorist” are on to something. I want to do something a little different, I don’t want to give you guys an all out review, but I want to show a very interesting concept I found in each season and episode. I believe Black Mirror has a particular amount of themes that the directors and writers are trying to get across and I would like to hopefully touch on what I think they are.
