    Watch This: Trailer for House of Cards, the final season

    How Best to Show Texting in a Film

    I need the huge ridiculous Grandma fonts to be able to read texts in a film, so I appreciate the solutions that make the text nice and big. I could read almost none of the tiny-sized texts in House of Cards, but I did appreciate the looks that Kevin Spacey threw at the camera after […]

    Reflections on House of Cards, season 2

    Season 2 of House of Cards appeared on Netflix on Valentine’s Day. If it was meant to be a little billet-doux from Netflix to sweeten up our weekend, it failed the sweetness test. It more than made up for it in the drama department, however. I want to share my reactions to this series without […]
