After the Disco Album Review

By Lucy Wenstrup, Reporter

August 23, 2014


Filed under A&E, Review

Just a warning: this review is incredibly biased because of my love for Broken Bells. Despite its high ratings on the Billboard 200 earlier this year, I feel that Broken Bells'  second studio album After the Disco deserves more praise and attention. Once again, musical geniuses Brian Burton (also kn...

Recently, I saw James Gunn's Guardians of the Galaxy. Coming from the ever-so-famous Marvel Studios, this action-packed space adventure was definitely one to remember.

By Megan Anderson, Staff Reporter

January 29, 2014


Filed under A&E, Opinion

When you hear the premise for the recently released movie Her, you may think the film is bound to be two uncomfortable hours of unnatural awkwardness. However, this story of a man falling in love with his Operating System (OS) is, for the most part, touching and leaves you questioning the lengths ...

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty Movie Review

By Lucy Wenstrup, Staff Writer

January 14, 2014


Filed under A&E

The Secret Life of Walter Mitty definitely caught my eye with its intricate story line that was much different from all the post-apocalyptic, superhero, alien movies.  It centered on Walter Mitty, played by Ben Stiller, a single man working in New York City in Life magazine’s photo department for the...

Filed under A&E

Those affiliated with the Mormon faith are of course familiar with The Book of Mormon. However, there is another book (more fittingly, another script) about the faith that is more suited to lighthearted actors. When viewing the stage musical The Book of Mormon, written and composed by Trey Parke...

The hype for the second Hunger Games movie Catching Fire was all too real as my friends and I waited in line to scan our tickets. The people behind us were restless, even though the movie started in forty minutes.  From the looks of it Catching Fire was one of the most anticipated movies of the yea...
