The Dose: Lights All Night kicks off the New Year

Lights All Night is ringing in the new year as it made its return to Dallas this Friday and Saturday for its seventh annual New Year’s music festival. The two-day event is the largest EDM music festival in Texas, and is being held at the Dallas Market Hall for its second time, with many changes to stage settings as well as alterations to the entrance that caused crowding issues in

The Dose: Musicals for musical haters

Anyone who follows movie awards seasons knows that “La La Land,” starring Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, is leading the upcoming Golden Globes with 7 nominations. I can’t wait to see it later this month, but only as a fan of the actors and director Damien Chazelle (“Whiplash”). Not as a musical fan. In fact, I usually hate musicals. As much as I’ve tried with many of the “greats,” I generally can’t stand them.

The Dose: The CW’s ‘Heroes vs. Aliens’ is the ‘best team-up ever’

“Heroes vs. Aliens,” the CW’s four-night event, kicked off on Monday with the “Supergirl” episode “Medusa.” Thanks to a well-devised marketing strategy, the CW billed the event as a crossover between its four DC superhero shows. This storyline, called “Invasion,” is better described as a three-night event with a tiny connection to “Supergirl.” Because “The Flash” characters appearance in “Supergirl” was so brief, I can understand why some people might

The Dose: Something Wicked returns to Houston

EDM fan-favorite Something Wicked returned on Friday, from Oct. 29 to 30, for its fifth annual festival, possessing the grounds of Sam Houston Race Park. The Houston-based festival was making its comeback after being canceled last year due to a hurricane. Despite multiple issues with previous festivals and weather, the Disco Donnie company was able to bounce back to surprising success. However, some of the issues were too serious to ignore. The

The Dose: ‘Fantastic Beasts’ is all bark, no bite

Throughout “Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them,” I kept waiting for a moment. A crucial moment of exposition is for the primary characters to stop casting spells and have a real, human moment to get me invested in their story. Any film should be peppered with those moments, something that all eight “Harry Potter” films did masterfully. That moment never truly shows up in “Beasts.” In its place were more

The Dose: New ‘Arrival’ movie urges heavy discussions

By Amanda Dycus This past weekend, I tried to convince friends and family that “Arrival” is not a movie about aliens. It’s not very much like the novella it’s based on either, which relies heavily on science to make its points. For a while, this movie has been hyped as masterful science fiction from talented filmmaker Denis Villeneuve (“Sicario,” “Prisoners”) and deservedly so. It also manages to be political, ideological and emotional for two

The Dose: Sound on Sound Festival brings magic and music

By Haley Yates A minor drizzle sprinkled over Sherwood Forest in McDade, Texas on Friday morning as eager festival-goers hunted for an empty spot to pitch their tent. Hours later, the drizzle faded to a fog and the inaugural Sound On Sound Festival commenced, bringing magic, music and more to the medieval forest known for hosting the annual Renaissance festival, Sherwood Forest Faire. Jesters, jugglers, acrobats and woodland creatures filled

The Dose: Dallas Fan Days welcomes pop culture enthusiasts right before Halloween

The event was held Oct. 14-16 at the Irving Convention Center.
