The Weekly Swarm: 2/3 – 2/9

Last week marked the return of one of our Film Writers, Alex Katz. Everybody, welcome him back! Alex pulled some extra weight this week, bringing us the latest installment of Netflix Pix, as well as a review of the (apparently) amazing The Lego Movie. Mackenzie also delivered a review of the French rom-com, Love is in the Air, which was (apparently) less than amazing. On the music side, Jake gave us our First Glance at DENA, as well as his steady stream of Songs of the Day installments. Over in photography, Angela shared some amazing photo shoots/spreads, and Virgil shared some of his photos from the Disclosure and Vic Mensa show in Austin. As for tech, I shared my hands-on experience with the Moto X’ exclusive Motorola Spotlight Stories platform. Check out all of this and more (much, much more) below!
