“Logan,” starring Hugh Jackman and Patrick Stewart and directed by James Mangold, is the final chapter to a character that has been a theatrical presence for 17 years. Although released under the “Marvel” brand, Logan comes across as ostensibly a stand-alone film. And it’s fantastic. In fact, I would argue that it is not crucial to have seen any of the other “X-men” films to enjoy this movie, although if you do have a connection...

Why does music and, to a greater degree art resonate so profoundly with us? In turn, why are certain groups and individuals compelled to react with outrage in response to what an artist expresses?

Run The Jewels have returned with their third collaborative Album: “Run the Jewels 3.” The duo, made up of legendary underground-New York producer El-P and Georgia-emcee Killer Mike, have done the seemingly impossible by outdoing themselves and delivering one of the most socially and politically relevant hip-hop albums in years. We live in tumultuous times, and this album is a reflection of the turbulent atmosphere of our nation. El-P and Killer Mike speak on behalf...

Across the landscape of the Internet, a handful of websites have grown to become synonymous with the medium to which they operate within. To “Google” something, for example, is a term that is now rooted in our collective lexicon.

YouTube is the same way. 4.95 billion videos are viewed every day on the website, while...

Two years later, he released “Old,” which, despite doing quite well both critically and commercially, detoured from the personal side of Danny that served to draw many listeners toward...
