Is it or Isn’t it Romantic?

Manasvi Reddy, Copy Editor

April 1, 2019

Romantic comedies, known for setting unrealistic expectations for love with whimsical fantasies and clichés, are an easy victim for those skeptical of the predictable and heartfelt plots of the genre. Screenwriters of “Isn’t it Romantic?”, Dana Fox, Erin Cardillo and Katherine Silberman have ...

Directed by Rich Moore and Phil Johnston, “Ralph Breaks The Internet” is a wholehearted movie with a flare of Disney reminiscence. I recently saw “Ralph Breaks The Internet” which opened in theatres November 21, 2018. After Ralph and Vanellope, played by John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman, save t...

December 10, 2018

My experience with the Nutcracker is limited to the cartoon version on Tom and Jerry, which was watched every year during Christmas back in my childhood years. As someone who has almost no knowledge of the actual ballet, I went into this movie with no expectations other than the standards of a Disney ...

‘Rise Red As The Dawn’, Read Red Queen

Cortney Wood, Co-Editor in Chief

May 23, 2016

Periodically throughout a year, book nerds absolutely spaz out over a new book and rave about it continuously. As many books as I read a year, I tend to fall in love with characters, or places, or ideas, but I really haven’t found a series that I am in LOVE with since fourth grade when I was introduced...

Finally. I’d basically been waiting for this phone for practically two years. To finally be rid of the haunting past that was my phone was glorious.. Granted I was supposed to wait in a freakishly long line, and maybe fill out the paperwork to get the new phone six to eight weeks later in...

World of tanks review. Raymond Mcnally. Most free-to-play games are not all that great while only a few can be incredibly addicting in their own way. The games I’m talking about are Team Fortress 2, Dota 2, and Star Wars: the Old Republic. For today I will be going over World of Tanks (WoT). At...

Pokemon X and Y is an incredible addition to the beloved franchise which, just like the series, has spanned many generations. These two entries bring to the hands of players many things they’ve wanted since the original Red and Blue games back in 1998. X and Y is a great encouragement for returnees...

Adult reviewers misunderstand major plot points of popular young adult trilogy

November 4, 2011

For the past three years The Hunger Games trilogy has been the victim of several misinformed reviewers. There are so many reviews that have been published, and that have completely missed the point of the books. The Hunger Games was published in September 2008. One review by Stephen King, published...

Emma White

October 21, 2010

This book is amazing. It is awesomely narrated by a girl trying help her family, from the "in-between" of life and death, to cope with her murder, while she tries to deal with it herself. From the horrific violence of the crime scene and the grief, to the redeeming hope of finding the truth, The...

A Great and Terrible Beauty: Great and Terrible

Emma White

October 21, 2010

A Great and Terrible Beauty, written by Libba Bray, is without a doubt a mysterious selection. It's a story about the girl Gemma who seems to have been touched by destiny. It is a shockingly cryptic view of her misfortunes and struggles with regret, confusion, strange visions, and fitting in at her...
