5 Reasons Why ‘The Winter Soldier’ is a Must See

Here at Larkable, we’ve been very excited about the new Captain America: The Winter Soldier movie, and now we have 5 legitimate reasons why you should be too. 5. The 3D is out of this world Let’s get this out of the way: there’s no such thing as an original story–it’s all in the delivery. When it comes to movies it breaks down into several components, but cinematography is huge, and The Winter Soldier delivers a stunning visual performance. I saw it in IMAX 3D;…

how i met your mother finale

We finally met The Mother…and then she died.

Monday night wrapped the epic story of how Ted Mosby Met the Mother of His Children, Tracy McConnell… It turns out, that wasn’t actually the point of the story. Caution: SPOILERS Let’s not drag this out, shall we?  On Monday, we saw Barney and Robin get married, Ted met the “Love of His Life“, Marshall and Lily renewed their wedding vows then grew old together in wedded bliss (huzzah).  Meanwhile, Barney and Robin got a divorce at the three year mark, Robin went on to…

Divergent

Why We Love Divergent’s Theo Jame

This is not a post where we go on and on about the Divergent actor’s sexy physique, or his impressive acting skillz. This is a post where we want to commend Theo James for making some important and progressive statements regarding  gender equality  in mainstream Hollywood films, and LGBT representation as well. Before Divergent,  you may not have known James or you may have recognized him as the Turkish diplomat who scandalously dies in Lady Mary’s bed in that one episode of Downton Abbey. I guess he was in Underworld:…

Black Widow

A Black Widow Movie? Scarlett Johansson’s Onboard

After years of dreaming, fans of the Black Widow are just a little closer to a solo film for Natasha Romanoff. In February, Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige told Digital Spy that Johansson’s character would be further developed in Captain America 2: The Winter Soldier and Avengers 2: Age of Ultron. The president then added that a standalone movie may also be in the works. Johansson lended her support to the  idea at the Captain America 2 premier in the UK, March 20. The actress told reporters, “If you…

The Big Bang Theory

Why Haters of “The Big Bang Theory” Need to Calm Down

E! broke the news that The Big Bang Theory is renewed not for one season, but 3 more seasons, and this is why you should celebrate. This makes my day! The Big Bang Theory is quite possibly my favorite show on basic cable…maybe it’s tied with Community. Those are two different comedy genres, so it’s not really fair to pit them against each other. TBBT defined modern Geek Chic with Sheldon’s iconic overlaying double tees, Leonard’s hoodie hanging out of his jacket, Howard’s dickies, and…

How I Met Your Mother

Spoilers! What We Learned Monday on “How I Met Your Mother”

For a few years now, theories have been circulating about why Ted is going to such lengths to tell his kids the story of how he met their mother. As the show wraps up, viewers are finally getting the chance to nix certain theories and advance others. Is this a good thing? You tell me. We’re only 4 episodes away from the series finale of this much beloved, though maybe overdone, show and one particularly tragic theory published last season is beginning to look more and…

PSA: John Travolta and “Adela Dazeem”

Viewers everywhere last night were shocked, concerned, offended and amused when John Travolta announced Idina Menzel to perform “Let It Go”…and he totally butchered her name. As you might have expected, this launched immediate social media backlash. There’s the parody twitter account, the buzzfeed list of Travolta’d Celebrity Names, plenty of tumblr rants, and gifs galore. And of course, it made all the talk shows this morning too.  And while that’s all great and fun, let’s take a moment to acknowledge: John Travolta does have Dyslexia.…

Iron Man: Pure Fiction or a Reality Waiting to Emerge?

It’s common knowledge that gadgets and gizmos of science fiction are often the concept behind a lot of modern equipment. What’s the newest technological crossover? Iron Man, according to President Obama. At the “Manufacturing Innovation Event” on Tuesday (February 25th), Obama announced the creation of a Pentagon-led center in Canton, Michigan called the American Lightweight Manufacturing Innovation Institute. The purpose? To create jobs (no big surprise there), serve as a high-tech research center and to produce new materials for high-tech manufacturing. “Basically, I’m here to…

Top 6 Reasons You’d Take Benedict Cumberbatch to Meet Your Parents

Typically, Hollywood A-listers don’t make the list of people you’d want to take home to Meet The Parents but here at Larkable, we’ve got 6 reasons why Benedict Cumberbatch is the exception to that rule.

Articles about the actor are…

J.K. Rowling Says Profound Things Regarding Relationships in ‘Harry Potter’

The interview that was heard about around the world is finally out, and J.K. Rowling opens up into real human detail about Hermoine, Ron, and Harry. Admittedly, the wait has been almost sickening and we haven’t even known about it for that long, but now that the famous interview of J.K. Rowling by Emma Watson is out, we just want to talk about it more. Not because of the outrage, but because J.K. Rowling admits almost all too late that Harry, Hermoine and Ron were…

The Film Industry’s Desperate Attempt to Educate Their Audiences

TV and movies generally get a bad rap for being dumb, irrelevant, meaningless, and overall mind numbing, but that’s actually not the case. Yeah, OK, sometimes movies and films can be mindless. Occasionally, that’s the charm. But if you don’t turn your brain off completely while watching some of your favorite flicks, you’ll probably notice that Hollywood is (and has) been making a pretty legitimate attempt to address some of the ignorances in our culture. The most well known case for this is Rob Reiner’s…
