The zombie genre, a tradition that had been left for dead, has seen quite a revival during recent years. But these are not the same zombies movie-goers first witnessed in movies like George Romero's 1970 film, "Dawn of the Dead." Rather, the conventions of the genre have been parodied and re-invented during the past couple of years thanks to the 2004 camp classic, "Shaun of the Dead." This film was revolutionary because it gave us the notion of the running zombie. This was the watershed moment in the current revival, as many films have since reveled in the idea of giving their antagonists the instincts and dexterity of an African gazelle. "Shaun" was a movie that provided the requisite gore to elicit laughter as only the Brits can do. Gone were the dated politics and the heavy-handed critique of consumerist America, replaced instead with heavy doses of irony and humor. Some have even dared to call these newer flicks "postmodern," but I have ethical reservations with categorizing a zombie movie as such ...
As a film addict, I am almost never in the awkward position of having little or nothing to watch. I usually go to see two or three movies a week, just to take refuge in a darkened theater room filled with strangers.
The Disco Biscuits, who will be playing in Richmond, Va., at The National on Oct. 1, will be releasing eight songs this fall from their new album "Planet Anthem," which drops January 2010.
"Jennifer's Body" is a dark comedic response to that unwarranted fan favorite, "Twilight." It may seem romantic to watch a film about sparkly vegetarian vampires who make girls commit suicide out of infatuation, even when the main characters are about as emotionally and intellectually thin as a smear of drool. But it's way cooler, and easier on the mind, to watch a hot chick eat boys in an 80s-horror-movie style. That is your cue, if you haven't already thrown this paper down in disgust, to stop reading if you're gushy for stilted pale teenagers trying hard not to eat each other.
"Our blind pursuit of technology only sped us quicker to our doom."
Ever take a good look around Richmond? The Princeton Review ranked it the 20th most beautiful campus in its 2010 edition of "The Best 371 Colleges," but if you take an even closer look, you will find that the students are just as gorgeous as their surroundings.
I recently had a conversation with a fellow movie-goer, the kind of conversation that usually results in my being accused of cinema-snobbery and not enjoying movies for their more entertaining merits. These conversations usually end with something like: "But hey, it's the summer. What were you expecting?"
I was first introduced to the GS Boyz single "Booty Dew" last weekend, and have been alarmingly uninterested in any other music since. I wondered to myself how a song with a name like "Booty Dew" had not shot to fame in a matter of Booty Dew days. So I took it upon myself to share the musical gold that is the GS Boyz new single -- the ambitious follow-up to their debut track delicately titled "Stanky Legg" -- with the world.
When the Rocky Horror Picture Show plays on the big screen at Movieland, Orgasmic Rush of Lust, a troupe made up of young groupies, will bring the film's characters to real life for a midnight audience.
The University of Richmond's ranking with the Princeton Review improved this year, with top marks in classroom experience and athletic facilities. But the university still sits among the top 20 schools with little interaction between those of different races or social classes.

Friday night, more people collectively yelled "Spiders" for Guster's Ryan Miller than at any basketball game I've been to. It was truly impressive.

She steps out of the rain and into the coffee shop, wearing a sweater and jeans, carrying a red umbrella and an unexpected accessory. Sam, her toddler son, is perched happily on her hip and giggles with a wide grin.
