Story by Bundy Raines, Student Reporter

January 30, 2018

  Approaching 67 Grill on Arkadelphia’s Main Street, the old, brick buildings lend authenticity to the down-home dive bar feel the place emits.

Ain’t No Rest For The Ballers

Story by Jordan WIlliams, Sports Reporter

January 23, 2018

  As classes came to a close in early December the campus grew empty as students left campus to return home for a much needed and well deserved break.

January 23, 2018

  Although 2017 had its fair share of massive blockbusters, it’s the smaller films that packed the most punch. You probably saw “Thor Ragnarok,” “Logan,” “Wonder Woman,” “Spiderman: Homecoming,” etc., but several independent films had more entertainment per ounce than the mega-budgeted stud...

December 5, 2017

The North American box office hasn’t been it’s best self this year. There have only been a handful of surprising hits, but there have been a bevy of surprising misses from “Justice League,” to “Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.” That doesn’t mean, however, that there ha...

Welcome Back, Frank

November 21, 2017

Out of every Marvel Netflix show, the one I’ve been excited for the most is “The Punisher.” And baby, it did not disappoint. With the first couple of episodes, it seems like “The Punisher” isn’t going to go against the formula these shows follow, but it does change things up and ends up ...

“Murder on the Orient Express” wasn’t a film that needed to be remade. The1974 film is widely considered to be a great adaptation of Agatha Christie’s murder mystery novel.With that stated, Kenneth Branagh’s version presented in this adaptation is a beautiful and enjoyable experience. Even ...

Hats Off to Super Mario Odyssey

Opinion by Dax Guilliams, Opinions Editor

November 7, 2017

“Super Mario Odyssey” is one of the best games Nintendo has ever made. This game is a gigantic leap in quality and really made me remember just how great Nintendo’s development team is. When I started playing the game, I knew it would be good, but I was not prepared for what is quite possibly...

Poop emoji: “The Emoji Movie” is a crappy excuse for a film

Review by Kara Amato, Student Reporter

November 7, 2017

It’s an idea that was practically laughed off the moment it was announced. A movie based on emojis from our cellphones. And yet, “The Emoji Movie” almost proves its detractors wrong. The film is given the building blocks for what could have been a serviceable, but not terribly exciting film, and...
