Review: ‘The Best of All Worlds’

By Madyson McGill I took a chance and watched my first ever German film. Yes, it has subtitles, but I had never tried to sit through a subtitled movie in a theater. I tried once in Italy, but they wouldn’t let us in. However, The Best of All Worlds ended up being the best film I saw all weekend at Heartland. The symbolism is spot-on … Continue reading Review: ‘The Best of All Worlds’

Review: ‘Breathe’

By Madyson McGill Breathe is one of Heartland’s Truly Moving Pictures, and I have to admit that I had shed a few tears by the end. Before I saw it, I thought it might be a bit too mainstream for my taste, featuring stars like Andrew Garfield, Tom Hollander, and Diana Rigg, but the film is still full of solid performances from all around. They know … Continue reading Review: ‘Breathe’

Review: ‘The Girl Who Invented Kissing’

By Madyson McGill On my very first night ever at the Heartland Film Festival, my very first movie was a little number called The Girl Who Invented Kissing, written and directed by Tom Sierchio. I went in thinking it would be a general independent film with some light hearted moments, some touching moments, but nothing too over-the-top dramatic. While it is all of that, I honestly … Continue reading Review: ‘The Girl Who Invented Kissing’

This past season had me on the edge of my couch, gripping a bottle… I mean glass of wine… for dear life. From the gruesome death of beloved dragon Viserion, to Cersei Lannister’s worst-time-to-become-pregnant announcement, to the fall of the wall, and Jon Snow … Continue reading Opinion: ‘Game of Thrones’ Final Season Predictions

Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’

By Madyson McGill Warning: this review contains spoilers. When I went to see the first Kingsman movie I was a bit skeptical. I’m not a fan of overdramatic, unrealistic deaths such as exploding firework heads. Funnily enough, however, I actually fell in love with the movie, and was beyond excited to see Kingsman: The Golden Circle. While no sequel is ever as good as the … Continue reading Review: ‘Kingsman: The Golden Circle’

Opinion: Brendon Urie to Star in ‘Kinky Boots’

By Madyson McGill In the wise words of Michael Scott: “Oh my god! It’s happening! Everybody stay calm, Everybody stay calm…” Brendon Urie, the angelic voice of Panic! at the Disco, is finally going to Broadway, and will be starring in the play Kinky Boots. That’s right. Breathe. I’ve been waiting for this moment since I witnessed the circus-themed extravaganza that was their Fever You Can’t … Continue reading Opinion: Brendon Urie to Star in ‘Kinky Boots’

Review: The Chainsmokers’ ‘Memories… Do Not Open’

By Madyson McGill Admittedly, when I think about not opening memories, the first thing that comes to mind is not the new Chainsmokers album, Memories Do Not Open. However, the title does make one ponder what memories they don’t want to open back up. In my personal experience, I can think of a few. I won’t bore you with by sharing these, because this isn’t … Continue reading Review: The Chainsmokers’ ‘Memories… Do Not Open’
