The Foreign Snowman: Dax on a couple of recent movies

Opinion by Dax Guilliams, Opinions Editor

October 24, 2017

A lot of movies have been released over the past couple of weeks. There are two particular movies that I wanted to review because the first one is easily one of the best movies of the year and the second is easily one of the worst. “The Foreigner” starring Jackie Chan and Pierce Brosnan is simp...

“Her eyes were green:” a review of “Blade Runner: 2049”

Story by Zakary Gray, Student Reporter

October 24, 2017

Creating a sequel to Ridley Scott’s 1982 cult sci-fi classic Blade Runner was never going to be an easy task. The original is a film that’s complex and requires multiple viewings to fully appreciate all of the nuances that were put into it. Somehow, Denis Villeneuve has made a sequel that is just as ...

After all these years, LG is still sounding as good as ever

Opinion by Dax Guilliams, Opinions Editor

October 10, 2017

Whenever it comes to smartphones, I try not to be a brand loyalist. Whenever I upgrade my phone, I like to switch to a different kind of phone to mix things up. This time, however, I once again went with an LG phone because their V series is just so good and the LG V30 is the best one yet. LG is very underrated ...

From a victim’s perspective: the truth about rape

Review by Emily Bell, Director of A&M/Copy Editor

October 10, 2017

I could have avoided it. I should have known better. I was always stronger than this, how did I let this happen? Everyone will know how stupid I am. Everyone will know what he did to me. Everyone will know… Unless I keep it to myself. These thoughts tend to swarm the mind for most who have exp...

When I was in high school, the first iPhone was released and it had me and everyone at my school losing their minds. It was world’s first true smartphone and it completely changed the world as we know it. For years, Apple would continue to release new versions of the iPhone that would be pretty so...

Guns, drugs and Tom Cruise: “American Made”

Review by Zakary Gray, Student Reporter

October 2, 2017

Doug Liman’s “American Made” is a fun film that, judging by its source material, probably shouldn’t be. Yet Liman has somehow made a film that’s fun to watch, hilarious at times, and moves at a breakneck pace that never leaves the viewer bored. Tom Cruise plays Gary Seal, a man who starts t...

Infinite Disappointment

Opinion by Dax Guilliams, Opinions Editor

September 26, 2017

The most consistent truth in fighting games is that any “Marvel vs Capcom” game is going to be filled to the brim with high quality content. Thanks to “Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite,” that is no longer true and we are now fools for believing it would be. “Marvel vs Capcom: Infinite” is a g...

Manners maketh man, again

Review by Zakary Gray, Student Reporter

September 26, 2017

“Kingsman: The Golden Circle” is certainly a fun movie, much like its predecessor, but it is not without faults. The movie doesn’t try anything new. For those who enjoyed “Kingsman: The Secret Service,” this is a good thing, but it doesn’t do anything drastically new to entice new viewers...

Fighting To Find Interest

Opinion by Dax Guilliams, Opinions Editor

September 18, 2017

Man, what happened to fighting games? I used to be so excited for every major fighting game title, but now that a lot of them are out and I’ve played them, I don’t know what to think anymore. The best fighting game out right now is “Tekken 7,” but even that has a few problems. The online for th...

Holy “mother!” of god

Review by Pete Tubbs, Editor in Chief

September 18, 2017

Darren Aronofsky’s new film “mother!” is the most recent wide theatrical release to earn an F from Cinemascore. That means that out of everyone that Cinemascore polled, most of the people hated this film, and I can completely understand why. 2017’s “mother!” stars Jennifer Lawrence, Javier...

Samsung Is Still Noteworthy

Opinion by Dax Guilliams, Opinions Editor

September 12, 2017

There’s a reason Samsung is one of the best when it comes to smartphones. While there are no perfect smartphones, Samsung’s Galaxy Note lineup get pretty close, except for that incident with the Note 7, but I’m going to ignore that. While the Note 8 isn’t available everywhere, some people tha...

I insist, I see the ghost

Opinion by Pete Tubbs, Editor in Chief

September 12, 2017

Though the opinion has become more widespread recently, I believe that Stephen King’s 1986 novel “It” is one of the best novels written in the last half of the twentieth century. From the characters to the atmosphere to the horror, nearly everything is perfect. It’s not hard to see that, when it co...
