Arts and Entertainment

The plotline for The Croods movie is so simple a caveman could have done it. The film takes a different approach from other prehistoric cavemen movies, such as The Flintstones, where audiences see animal and man coexisting peacefully. Instead, this movie illustrates survival of the fittest with carnivorous animals and intense climate change, but does not survive as an exceptional film for it...

The Legend Continues to be Awesome

When my friend called me up and asked me to go see the second Anchorman movie, I was scared. Having perfected the art of lewd, crude, and rude, the original Anchorman is still to this day one of the funniest movies I have ever seen.


Connectivity Problems

The world is (supposedly) more connected now than ever before. Technology allows us to communicate easier, get work done quicker, and fit more into our daily lives. But with all these advancements, are we too distracted to recognize the beautiful moments and opportunities in life? Are people more disconnected?


What's Happened to the Disney Channel?

Disney Channel Original Series’ are just not what they used to be. I remember coming home from elementary school and immediately occupying the couch to engage in my own mini marathon of fascinating TV shows such as That’s So Raven and Lizzie McGuire. Ah, those were the days. Now, all I ever come across on the once respectable Disney Channel are shows such as A.N.T. Farm and Dog With a Blog.


Famous YouTubers You Should Watch

It’s mid-November and now that we’ve all survived our midterm exams and projects, there’s no better way to celebrate than by relaxing and watching some YouTube videos! Here’s a list of five awesome YouTubers you should watch:

Laci Green


Pacific Rim: Where Aliens Act Better Than Humans

SPOILER ALERT

The previews were epic, frightening and visually hypnotizing. The plotline provided an engaging, original twist on a weathered storyline. Guillermo del Toro directed it. Of course I was going to see Pacific Rim with high expectations. Unfortunately, they weren’t met.

Pacific Rim gets 3/5 stars from me.


This Is One of My New Favorite Movies

I don’t laugh out loud often in theatres, but this one literally had me wiping my eyes the entire time, both times I went to see it.

This is the End gets 5/5 stars from me.


Simple plotline leads to dull film

The plotline for The Croods is so simple that a caveman could have written it. The film takes a different approach from other prehistoric cavemen movies, such as The Flintstones, where audiences see animal and man coexisting peacefully.


A Maybe Happy Ending

For television shows, endings are rarely happy. Many shows are canceled within their first season, and some after just a few episodes. Conversely, the breakout hits last for years, as storylines get more contrived and character relationships are mixed and matched to the point where the desperation in the writers’ room is palpable.


A Parent's Worst Nightmare

As summer time comes around, it’s easy to say that all we want to do is dip our feet into a nice cold swimming pool. Well, E! TV has already done this for us and if we’re going all metaphorical here, they didn’t just dip our feet. Instead, they threw us into the deep end...without life preservers, because ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the world of Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte.


An Ode to the Resurrection of Greatness

I have never been so excited for a Sunday in my life. In fact, I don’t know if I’ve ever been excited for a Sunday. Sundays usually remind me of homework and the following Monday. But it’s summer now. There’s no homework to do and I actually enjoy my job, so Sundays aren’t nearly as depressing as they had been during the school year.
