EDITORIAL: R.I.P. Carrie Fisher

The news of Carrie Fisher’s passing on Tuesday morning really hurt. It hurt more than most of the heartbreaking deaths that has occurred in 2016. Carrie Fisher meant so much to all of us for various reasons. For some, she’s looked at as our first crush as Princess Leia in the Star Wars films. For…

EDITORIAL: Jake Meets Bruce Springsteen

  As many of you could probably guess by now, we here at Movie Talk are big fans of Bruce Springsteen.

EDITORIAL: Thank You, Bruce Springsteen

Last week in Dallas, Texas, I saw Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band at the American Airlines Center. Bruce is a personal favorite of mine, and it was a dream come true seeing him play for three-and-a-half hours Tuesday night (concert recap here). A few days after that concert, Bruce canceled his concert in…
