Review: The Girl on the Train

By Troi Watts The curse of being a cinemaholic: you’re really good at predicting what’s going to happen in movies. You want to like certain movies, but you just can’t ignore the fact that you’ve seen this plot a dozen times… in the past year. I’ve been there and that’s why when I heard people calling The Girl on the Train “the thriller that shocked the world,” … Continue reading Review: The Girl on the Train


Opinion: The Chainsmokers

By Madyson McGill The Chainsmokers have come a long way since their breakout hit “Selfie,” back in 2014.  Right now, they couldn’t get closer to the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100 chart as their hit song “Closer,” featuring alternative-pop princess Halsey, is already there and has been for six weeks. Their other hit song “Don’t Let Me Down” is also up there … Continue reading Opinion: The Chainsmokers


Review: Shin Godzilla

By Andrew Haas History has a funny way of repeating itself. Godzilla, or Gojira, has been a staple of Japanese cinema for decades and remains an international icon, yet it seems every time someone else tries to recreate that success, Japan is ready to reawaken the sleeping giant. In 1998, TriStar brought us the disaster that was Roland Emmerich’s Godzilla. In response, Toho brought the franchise … Continue reading Review: Shin Godzilla


Review: Luke Cage

By Quentin Basnaw “Sweet Christmas.” You will soon be uttering these words if you watch season one of the latest Netflix Marvel hit, Luke Cage. If you haven’t seen it, WATCH IT.

Luke Cage is the latest show in Marvel’s lineup … Continue reading Review: Luke Cage


Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children

By Andrew Haas Tim Burton is one of my personal favorite directors, for the most part. He has been a very influential filmmaker with a hit or miss track record. Many of his films like Beetlejuice and Edward Scissorhands are considered classics, while 2010’s Alice in Wonderland and 2001’s Planet of the Apes aren’t looked at too kindly. When I heard he was directing Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children, … Continue reading Review: Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children


Opinion: “This Town” single

By Caroline Meister Since December 2015, One Direction has been on a hiatus, which only makes sense due to nonstop touring and a crazy recording scheduling since 2011. They promised fans that it was only a break and that they’d be back; it’s not the end. The verdict is still out on that, but with rumors of the boys individually signing to record companies and the release of … Continue reading Opinion: “This Town” single


From the Vault Review: Children of Men

By Anthony Miglieri The first scene in Children of Men depicts a grey, somber crowd gathered in a shop, watching the news: the youngest person on earth, aged 18, has been murdered. One man glances at the television, buys a coffee, and trudges outside. Moments later, the shop explodes, flames and downed people scattered and screaming. It gets worse from there. The greatest achievement of … Continue reading From the Vault Review: Children of Men
