Opinion: Jonas Punched Me in the Gut and Not in a Good Way

By Anna Jirgal Have you ever watched the Super Bowl? You know, your family and all your friends are gorging themselves on burgers, dip, and whatever concoction Aunt Sally made that looks super suspicious but tastes amazing.

Opinion: ‘Game of Thrones’ Final Season Predictions

By Madyson McGill Better late than never. I’ve been reeling since the finale of the latest season of Game of Thrones. This past season had me on the edge of my couch, gripping a bottle… I mean glass of wine… for dear life.

Opinion: Editing, Pacing, and the Headaches Movies Give Me (Sometimes)

By Quentin Basnaw My most recent review was for Hacksaw Ridge, a movie I enjoyed.

This YouTube video was later parodied in … Continue reading Opinion: Chris Brown’s Career

Opinion: Is the Walking Dead Too Brutal Now?

By Quentin Basnaw Oh, The Walking Dead. At its best, it’s a solid, riveting, and emotionally complex hour of television. At worst, it’s a pretentious, optimized cash cow playing off of the audience member’s thought: will my favorite character live? The Walking Dead usually succumbs to the latter of these two situations more often than the former. The Season 7 premiere aired two weeks ago, and … Continue reading Opinion: Is the Walking Dead Too Brutal Now?
