“A Wrinkle in Time” Falls Short of Stellar

Nathan Fletcher, Staff Reporter

March 15, 2018

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...

Mixed Music Genres Create Mediocre Album for Justin Timberlake

Sam Klemme, Entertainment Editor

February 22, 2018

Justin Timberlake is a mystery to me. I know he has a couple popular songs and was the performer at the most recent Super Bowl halftime show that I didn’t watch. Other than that I’ve had little experience with his music. From what I know, he is one of those artists that has a song that everyone...

“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 ...
