‘All Eyez on Me’ may not be that great, but definitely worth a watch

‘All Eyez on Me’ may not be that great, but definitely worth a watch

Sean Armstrong | Staff Writer All Eyez on Me is an honest depiction of Tupac Shakur’s life, and I intend for this to be an equally honest review. The film is clear cut in showing the controversial rapper as egotistical, consumed by rage and naÏvette. It also shows the other side of the icon, the […]

“Theft by Finding” offers behind-the-scenes look into author’s life

Zach Landau | A&E Editor It’s difficult to review a diary if only for the simple fact that there is no accepted baseline of quality for something that straddles both the personal and the public. Criticizing the turmoil of yet another teenager and their struggle to fit in is one thing, but as soon as […]

E3 Recap: One writer’s most anticipated releases

Grant Stoner | Staff Writer Every year, developers and journalists alike flock to the Electronic Entertainment Expo, where new titles are revealed to the masses. This year’s E3 did not disappoint, with each press conference revealing games that made my wallet weep. Since there are too many games to discuss, here are my top five […]

‘It Comes at Night’ nails presentation, misses intrigue

‘It Comes at Night’ nails presentation, misses intrigue

Zach Landau | A&E Editor I cannot remember the last time I felt so conflicted about a film. It Comes at Night is a curious movie that should tick every box for me. At its core, the film tries to unravel the perverse evil that hypermasculinity inflicts on men and ends inconclusively — which is […]

‘Cigarettes After Sex’ expertly delivers on moody tracks

‘Cigarettes After Sex’ expertly delivers on moody tracks

Zach Landau | A&E Editor Nothing can describe Cigarettes After Sex’s sound better than one word: haunting. Everything from the instrumentation to the vocals to even the promotional material would not seem out of place coming from some derelict record player found in an abandoned, condemned house. And I love it. All at once moody […]

All Time Low mix old and new in ‘Last Young Renegade’

All Time Low mix old and new in ‘Last Young Renegade’

Loren Smith | Staff Writer With their release of Last Young Renegade on June 2, Baltimore pop-punk band All Time Low takes a different spin on its alternative sound. The new album encompasses a theme of self-realization and shows the band’s sound maturing into more of a modern pop style while still including the upbeat rock […]

Halsey’s ‘hopeless fountain kingdom’ delivers classic tale in new, exciting way

Halsey’s ‘hopeless fountain kingdom’ delivers classic tale in new, exciting way

Nicolas Jozefczyk | Staff Writer One may think that a story of star-crossed lovers is old hat, but Halsey has taken the old tale and revamped it for her second album, hopeless fountain kingdom. The story of Romeo and Juliet is quite old, but throughout her concept album, Halsey proves that the same story can […]

‘Wonder Woman’ exceeds expectations, falls short of wonderful

‘Wonder Woman’ exceeds expectations, falls short of wonderful

Zach Landau | A&E Editor I guess a qualifying statement is as good of a place to start as any: Wonder Woman is good, probably great. The DC Extended Universe (or whatever they’re calling this fresh hell) has finally produced its first above-average, competent film, and without a doubt, Wonder Woman stands heads and shoulders […]

NetherRealm delivers addictive fun in ‘Injustice 2’

NetherRealm delivers addictive fun in ‘Injustice 2’

Grant Stoner | Staff Writer In 2013, NetherRealm Studios released “Injustice: Gods Among Us,” allowing comic book fans to finally answer the age-old question of who would win in a fight: Batman or Superman? Not only that, “Injustice” excelled at delivering fast-paced, fluid encounters, solidifying the title as an excellent addition to an already expansive […]

“Teenage Emotions” fails to explore the depth of Lil Yachty

“Teenage Emotions” fails to explore the depth of Lil Yachty

Leah Devorak | Editor-in-Chief When one hears that an album is to be titled “Teenage Emotions,” the expectation is immediately one of two things: 1. A musical thrill ride featuring partying, drama, depression, elation, carelessness, heartbreak, insecurities and milestones all mixed up and muddled together to create a deep, thought-provoking package. 2. Empty and hollow […]
