I like One Direction. I've shed all embarrassment and feel the need to tell it to the world. Yes, the five impeccably dressed, tattooed members of the most successful boy band across the globe have officially become a part of my life. So when I found out that they were making a documentary, I couldn't...

Now You See Me

Now You See Me

By Taylor Knudson, Staff Writer

June 5, 2013

The only reason I would recommend viewing “Now You See Me” would be if you had some irrational hatred of money and want to get rid of yours by spending it on a mediocre film about magicians. For the $11 I spent on this movie I could have bought a quarter tank of gas, nine Slurpees at 7-Eleven, or...

Evil Dead

Evil Dead

By Andrew Walker, Staff Writer

May 23, 2013

“Evil Dead,” the top horror movie of this year so far, hit theatres as the very scary remake of the original “Evil Dead” of the eighties.  The movie did its part as a remake meaning it wasn’t a disgrace to the classic. The praise it got though was a little much. The scary part of a movie should...

The Big Wedding

The Big Wedding

By Elise Echeverria, Staff Writer

May 20, 2013

Despite its misleading previews, displaying an all-star cast, cute love scenes, and cheesy jokes, “The Big Wedding” is not your typical rom-com. So moviegoers beware: if you’re looking for a few laughs with a “tear-jerker” predictable ending, then this is not the film for you. Although fairly...

The Great Gatsby

The Great Gatsby

By Taylor Knudson, Staff Writer

May 20, 2013

Baz Luhrmann films are sort of like the Kardashian sisters of the movie industry. They’re pretty, loud, and unjustifiably rich. In a sense, “The Great Gatsby” movie adaptation feels almost as if a Kardashian herself had a perfectly manicured hand in the production of the film. Not like that’s...

Oblivion

By Rachel Nerenberg, Staff Writer

May 16, 2013

Tom Cruise. What can I say? You are as brilliant as you are gorgeous. But “Oblivion”… that was something else (in a good way). You might think you know this story; in the end Cruise gets the girl and they live happily ever after, just like in every other Tom Cruise movie. Well, think again. Cruise...
