“Planet of The Apes:” A classic of epic proportions

“Planet of The Apes:” A classic of epic proportions

Eddie Sheehy, Lifestyles Columnist

November 19, 2013

I’ve been putting off writing this article for as long as I can, but every week when it comes time to choose what movie I’m going to review, I find myself putting this movie at the top of the list. The reasons as to why I’ve been so slow to write this are numerous. For one thing, it’s a classic:...

“Robot And Frank:” Sci-fi independence

“Robot And Frank:” Sci-fi independence

Eddie Sheehy, Lifestyles Columnist

November 14, 2013

I love independent films, and I love sci-fi. Unfortunately for me, these two types of movies almost never meet. It’s a logistics problem, I know, sci-fi has a tendency to rely heavily on special effects, foreign landscapes and aliens which is virtually impossible to do on an independent budget. Ever...

Eddie’s film guide to Halloween

Eddie Sheehy, Lifestyles Columnist

October 30, 2013

My favorite holiday without a doubt is Halloween. Scaring people, dressing up in costumes, eating candy, it’s all good in my book. Unfortunately for us, Halloween this year falls on a Thursday- which means most of us won’t be able to take part in Halloween festivities on October 31st, due to having...

In terms of desserts, nothing could be more amazingly simple and satisfying than a brownie. For those who crave chocolate and love the taste of salted caramel, this is the recipe for you. Ordinarily, whenever I bake brownies I stick to using just your typical boxed brownie mix, and I add whatever other...

I was inspired over this past weekend when I finally got the last piece of my Halloween costume in the mail to write this article. I plan on being Kane from “Alien” this year, so I needed a chest-burster. This shopping around for a chest-burster led me to the desire to watch “Alien,” which inadve...

What do you get when you take a legendary director, an Oscar winning actor, and the most beautiful woman on Earth?   “The Terminal.”   The director I’m talking about is, of course, Steven Spielberg, the Oscar winning actor is Tom Hanks, and the most beautiful woman on Earth is none other th...

District 9: Political, Original, and Fun

District 9: Political, Original, and Fun

October 1, 2013

A movie covering issues of politics, racism, and social class. Sounds boring- right? Usually I’d agree, but believe it or not, that is exactly what one of my favorite movies is all about.   Obviously, I’m talking about “District 9”. Still unknown to a lot of people, District 9 was directed by Ne...

With fall finally arriving, there is nothing more perfect than the taste of pumpkin. For this week’s post, I searched Pinterest to attempt something new- specifically, to make some scones. As an avid tea drinker and someone who enjoys all things pumpkin, this recipe was perfect. While my scones di...

Silence of the Lambs: Just watch it

Silence of the Lambs: Just watch it

Eddie Sheehy, Lifestyles Columnist

September 24, 2013

Before I begin my review of “Silence of the Lambs”, I feel I must address a mistake I had made in last week’s column. In my “One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest” review I had talked at length about Jack Nicholson's retirement. Literally the day after the article was released, good old Jack made a ...

“One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”

September 17, 2013

With the news of Jack Nicholson's retirement swirling around in the media, I couldn't help but be re-inspired to write this post. Originally, I had planned for “One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest” to be my first review for Out of My Element, but logistically, it made more sense to save it for later. It...
