“The Invisible Man”: Thrilling Blumhouse Production


Taylor Park, Staff Reporter

March 10, 2020

“The Invisible Man” yanks its audience through increasingly distressing twists and turns, disorienting what you thought you knew about the plot, leaving you squirming in your seat. Every time I thought I had figured out the main plot of the movie, there would be an unpredictable scene that threw...

March 9, 2020

"Sonic The Hedgehog" is exactly what long time fans of the little blue blur have been patiently waiting for. This movie is chock-full of hidden easter eggs, bad puns, cute family-friendly jokes, and a theme about the value of friendships, making "Sonic The Hedgehog" a must-see family film. Throughout the movie, you...

‘Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey,’ DC Universe action title worth watching

In the movie industry, it often happens that a movie’s quality does not necessarily guarantee its box-office performance. “Harley Quinn: Birds of Prey,” featuring Margot Robbie, is unfortunate proof of this phenomenon in the best way possible. Should you go see this movie, you’d have an excellent...

‘Gretel and Hansel’: grim but dull adaptation


Rodrigo Gutierrez, Staff Reporter

February 11, 2020

“Gretel and Hansel” retells the classic grim tale from the perspective of Gretel but offers little to no intrigue in its adaptation. Directed by Oz Perkins, the adaptation brings little action to keep the audience at the edge of the seat and turns out to be creepy than scary. At the beginning...

“Turning” disappoints, lacks plot and horror


Oscar Frias-Rivera, Staff Reporter

February 11, 2020

“The Turning” that came out this past weekend was a huge letdown. As the movie ended I yelled out “What” as did someone else in the movies after it went to credits because no one expected the movie to end as it did. Me, already being a “Stranger Things” fan, thought maybe this would...

“Terminator: Dark Fate,” directed by Tim Miller, featuring original cast members Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton, attempts to revisit previous plotlines with a new twist, but becomes repetitive and boring. The sixth movie installment in the Terminator franchise revolves around mending...

‘In The Tall Grass’ is a decent piece of horror and propaganda


Alex Woolner, Staff Reporter

October 31, 2019

Stephen King and Joe Hill’s novella, “In the Tall Grass,” is an unfortunate piece of anti-abortion propaganda and an OK horror film. Directed by Vincenzo Natali, the mystery thriller focuses on two families that become trapped in an inescapable field of grass as a result of their own choices. The...

‘Tell Me Who I Am’ a disturbing trauma film


Harleen Gill, Staff Reporter

October 31, 2019

“Tell Me Who I Am,” is an enticing and disturbing documentary, but not worthy of putting on your watchlist. The documentary is about two identical twins Marcus and Alex Lewis who confront each other after 20 years about their childhood traumas. Director Ed Perkins does a good job of eliciting...

‘Maleficent 2’ is messy and almost completely unrelated to ‘Sleeping Beauty’


Kathleen Quinn, Staff Reporter

October 30, 2019

“Maleficent 2: Mistress of Evil,” is a movie about acceptance, recognizing and overcoming differences, though a lot of that gets lost in its poor execution.  “Mistress of Evil,” is a sequel to the 2014 “Maleficent,” which gives the Disney villain a second chance at a first impression b...

El Camino: A Worthy Epilogue to One of the Greatest Shows of all Time


Siddarth Srivastava, Staff Reporter

October 26, 2019

Epilogue is the key word here. This is not a new chapter of the “Breaking Bad” story, but a conclusion to one character’s story that didn’t get a full ending. It is definitely a worthy epilogue and worth your time if you are a “Breaking Bad” fan. “El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie” throws...
