by Rae Clinkenbeard–Much has been changing over the last month due to COVID-19, and the school year is quickly coming to an end in a way no one could have expected. I definitely did not see this being the end to my senior year. As part of my senior project for my Arts Administration major,...

by Hailey Barrus–Do you remember being a kid and watching the Goonies gang set off on a crazy adventure for One-Eyed Willy and his bountiful treasure?

Arts & Entertainment / April 18, 2020 ‘Bright Places’ not so bright

by Mari Pizzini– Movie adaptations of books have been all the rage, but it’s common knowledge that many of these adaptations just don’t cut it. However, the idea that “the book was better” has yet to stop books being made into movies. Netflix’s All the Bright Places is a 2020 movie adapted from Jennifer Niven’s...

Arts & Entertainment / April 18, 2020 ‘Feel Good’ makes you think

by Mari Pizzini– With COVID-19 seeming to have sapped up a lot of joy and excitement, I decided I wanted to watch some feel-good television.

by Hailey Barrus– While the entire country waits patiently to open back up, what better way to enjoy quarantine than a bigger than life docuseries that has murder, rednecks, and a bunch of tigers.

Arts & Entertainment / March 31, 2020 ‘Lovely War’ is a good read

by Mari Pizzini– Spring Break, Corona-cation, or whatever you want to call the last few weeks has been pretty scary, but also pretty boring. However, as an English major I’ve found this time to be pretty darn good for catching up on some “summer” reads. Julie Berry’s Lovely War has all the components I am...

Arts & Entertainment / March 26, 2020 Netflix: ‘Altered Carbon’ Season Two Doesn’t Stack Up

by Abby Koch– The world of Altered Carbon has returned for a second season on Netflix, two years after the first with a mix of old and new faces.

Netflix: What’s up with ‘You’?

by Mari Pizzini– What’s been up with you, recently? More specifically, what’s been up with You, the Netflix-original show starring Penn Badgely as a serial killer. Or a romantic-gone-wrong. Or a criminal who just needs a little help. No matter how you see Badgley’s character Will Bettlehiem, aka Joe Goldberg, it’s certain that he’s going…

Netflix: ‘The Circle’ makes a point

by Mari Pizzini–The start of 2020 brought many new shows and movies to Netflix, including their own original reality series The Circle. With four episodes being released each Wednesday, this show had me on the edge of my seat.  I’ve never really been one to be interested in the genre of reality television. I recently watched my…

Star Wars: Rise of a Mess

by Abby Koch–Director J.J. Abrams returned to the Star Wars franchise to conclude the recent trilogy with Rise of Skywalker. The final chapter of the trilogy and of the Skywalker saga begs to be liked but ultimately feels odd and an unfulfilling conclusion.
