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...

As a senior who’s managed to ward off senioritis enough to hold on to his senior privileges, I’m often on the lookout for off-campus spots to spend my extended lunch hour. My latest visit was to Spin! Pizza, a new eatery just west of Skutt Catholic, at 173rd and Center Street. Opened last fall,...

After playing Fortnite for a solid 20 hours (for research purposes only, of course), the one thing that shocked me was how familiar it felt. This was particularly odd considering how rarely I play these kinds of online multiplayer games. After staring at the home screen for a few minutes, though, it...

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...
