‘Five Feet Apart’ Review: Just Another Mediocre Hospital Romance

‘Five Feet Apart’ Review: Just Another Mediocre Hospital Romance

Natalie Pearson, Entertainment Editor

April 3, 2019


Filed under *Showcase, Entertainment, Movies

“Five Feet Apart” is a movie that, given its premise—two teens with the same terminal illness fall in love—could easily be compared to John Green’s “The Fault in Our Stars.” Both stories deal with a romance between two people who know they’re dying and how that affects their relation...

A warning for everyone thinking about seeing this film: the entire movie is shown through the screen of a desktop computer. I was made aware of this shortly before viewing, but if I hadn’t been told I would not have understood what was going on. Even with this knowledge, it took awhile to get used it. ...

Harry Potter is a movie franchise loved by all generations. Unfortunately, the second installment of the new Harry Potter spin-off series thoroughly disappointed me. “Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindlewald is a prequel to the original Harry Potter stories that tells the adventures of magical zoolo...

Going into the movie,“The Grinch,” I was skeptical of how it would compare to the original animated film, “How the Grinch Stole Christmas,” directed by Chuck Jones. My family and I typically view this film annually, and I am quite fond of the cartoon. The newest film surpassed my expectations ...

Tangerine Reef: 1% Music, 99% Nonsense

Sam Klemme, Quintessence Editor-in-Chief

Filed under *Showcase, Entertainment, Movies

Tangerine Reef, created by the experimental group Animal Collective, is a melismatic set of music that is quite honestly confusing to listen to. Let me start off here by saying I had no idea what I was getting myself into. I had never heard of the band or even some of the genres that the album cove...

Oliver Daly made his directorial debut last weekend with “A-X-L,” and I was not impressed. That is to say, it’s downright awful. Starring a generic protagonist and his killer robot dog, this movie attempts to hop on the “man’s best friend” bandwagon that has inundated cinema as of late, an...

“Christopher Robin” is a Tear Jerking and Heartwarming Fantasy

Some movies are heartbreaking, others are heartwarming. “Christopher Robin” is both. I went into the movie skeptical - considering I was a seventeen-year-old seeing a Winnie the Pooh movie - but I made sure to go in with an open mind. As the movie started, I began to feel like a kid again. The begi...

With over 30 superheroes involved, there’s plenty of potential for things to go awry in Avengers: Infinity War. Being a decade in the making and Marvel’s biggest crossover to date—needless to say, I was hyped. I jumped at the first chance I got to see it in theaters. Essentially, in Infinity...

When I first heard that rapper Snoop Dogg had released, of all things, a gospel album- I was shocked. When I first heard the rapper Snoop Dogg’s gospel album- I was even more shocked. Every single song in the album is great, whether it be a traditional gospel hymn or a contemporary hip-hop song. ...

When my mom first asked me to see this movie, I was a bit hesitant. I thought it would be some cheesy religious movie, but I was definitely wrong. The movie is about how the song, “I Can Only Imagine,” by MercyMe is created and how the artist, Bart Millard, found the inspiration to write the hit...

Once I heard that Steven Spielberg would direct "Ready Player One," I decided to read the book before the movie came out. It quickly became one of my favorite books I have read and I was excited for the movie. One thing that made me nervous before I saw the movie was that Spielberg would not stay faithful...

When it comes to most movies based on video games, a lot is lost in translation. I am not familiar with the source material for Tomb Raider, but if that fact holds true for this series, then the games must be absolutely perfect. (Spoilers below!) The film opens on Lara Croft kickboxing at the local...
