Call of Duty.

Max Egger’s The Lighthouse a movie

December 10, 2019

I remember the first time I finished watching The Shining very vividly. Part of the reason why it is still so fresh in my mind even now is its classic refusal to make sense. I obsessed about what all of it could mean; it prompted me to trek to the center of what made film itself tick. I researched subtext and the use of color ...

“Dear Evan Hansen” musical inspires audience

November 11, 2019

When it comes to entertainment our phone or computer is often the first place we look to get it. But even the immense 30ft tall screens that we encounter in movie theatres can’t compare to the experience of something so up close as live theatre. I recently went to see the musical “Dear Evan Hansen,” and it truly rekindl...

If you were to ask anybody my age how they connected with their fathers when they were just becoming children, a hearty number of them would most likely point to sports. And notwithstanding my fathers attempt to siphon golf into me, the movies and music shown to me by him continue to stuff my brain with inspiration and love...

Us: a review

April 29, 2019

When I began to see the trailers for the film Us, it was very blatantly a horror themed movie. There were a lot of eyes on this new movie, and a lot of it was due to the fact that Jordan Peele was the writer, producer, and director. This name will sound familiar from the widely known movie, Get Out. The two movies seemed to...

April 29, 2019

In early April, an incredible superhero movie was released into theaters and it wasn't Captain Marvel or the soon to be released Avengers: Endgame, it was Shazam. As a superhero enthusiast and comic shop worker, I went into the movie expecting DC Comics to again butcher one of its characters with forced exposition and dark lighting. Wit...

“Mean Girls” is not only a hilarious book written by Rosalind Wiseman, and a classic screenplay written by Tina Fey, but is now a phenomenal Broadway play. Filled with great musical numbers and humorous scenes, it portrays a great message of being true to yourself. While on a trip to New York, I had the privilege to watch this g...

March 28, 2019

The Umbrella Academy, based on Gerard Way’s graphic novel, is a unique take on what it means to be a superhero. As a fan of the original comic, I quickly became excited when the show was released. Within two days I had finished the 10 episode season. Although the film adaptation varies from the original version, I was ...
