Dr. Seuss’ “The Grinch” Receives an Upgrade

Dr. Seuss’ “The Grinch” Receives an Upgrade

Gracie Killgore, Op/Ed Editor

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...

The hardest part of reviewing A Wrinkle in Time was convincing someone to see it with me. Simply no one appeared to have any desire to see the movie. The novel the movie is based on is supposedly one of the greatest children’s books of all time, and yet very few children actually seemed excited for...

I’m normally not one for cheesy romances, but “Every Day” had managed to pique my curiosity with its intriguing premise, so I went to the theater to see it. It wasn’t “The Notebook,” that’s for certain, but it wasn’t entirely awful either; it genuinely did have insightful themes and a...

“Winchester” is the most recent movie from twin directors Michael and Peter Spierig, who also directed movies such as “Daybreakers” and “Undead.” Truth be told, I didn’t expect much walking into the theater, and I was not surprised. That’s not to say that it was awful—it wasn’t. It ...
