Damon Wayans Jr And Jake Johnson To Front Comedy Caper Let’s Be Cops


By:  Kristy Puchko The buddy cop comedy is a tried and true formula where you pair two polar opposites as partners then watch the sparks fly as they save the day and explode at each other. (Riggs!) But the newly greenlit comedy Let’s Be Cops offers a new twist on this time-tested narrative, providing two best-bud protagonists who aren’t actually policemen. They are just pretending to be cops for kicks. Of course impersonating a cop is a serious crime, but what’s worse is when these []

Ceremony


Beautiful and mesmerizing, honestly, one of the most honest pieces of writing I have read in a long time.  Silko in her novel Ceremony was able to really write of the true hardships of the Pueblo Indians, hardships that not only plagued them, but also plagued other Native societies. Tayo, the main protagonist is trying to survive in a world that does not want him after he has come back from WWII with severe post-traumatic stress disorder.  As a half-breed, being half []

Even []
