Sozo Coffeehouse No Longer Hidden

Sozo Coffeehouse No Longer Hidden

Maddie Mollner, Student Life Editor

January 19, 2018

Traveling all the way to 14th and Jones streets just outside of the Old Market may seem like quite a trip just for a cup of coffee, but Sozo Coffeehouse proves itself worth the gas money and a trip down a creaky metal staircase. Yes, you read that correctly; in order to enter Omaha’s biggest coffeehouse,...

Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” Is An Enthralling Journalistic Thriller

Steven Spielberg’s “The Post” Is An Enthralling Journalistic Thriller

Natalie Pearson, Staff Reporter

January 18, 2018

“The Post” is a masterful docudrama, taking place in 1971 and telling the story of The Washington Post’s printing of the Pentagon Papers, classified documents detailing the United States’ involvement in the Vietnam War. The premise, I’ll admit, sounded boring, as I’m normally not one for d...

It only took a taste of the movie-musical “Waitress” for me to fall in love with it. Based on the 2007 indie film of the same name, “Waitress” focuses on Jenna (Desi Oakley), a waitress and expert pie baker at Joe’s Diner in the American South. Seemingly stuck in an unhappy relationship with...

After a year long hiatus, Netflix’s The Crown debuted a second season of the historically based series. This season’s impeccable cinematography, plot line and impressive cast make The Crown a ravishing drama; but it still possesses some faults. From the extravagant set to regal costumes, The Crown...

“Wonder” Adaption Stays True to Inspiring Message

“Wonder” Adaption Stays True to Inspiring Message

Nathan Fletcher, Staff Reporter

December 1, 2017

“Wonder” is a heartwarming, cheesy, shallow, feel-good film about a little boy who makes some friends despite being horribly ugly. Or at least, that’s what I expected walking into the theatre. What I got was a touching tale about a community peeling off their masks and discovering what it is to...

Look What You Made Me Listen to

Look What You Made Me Listen to

Emma Brisbois, Copy Editor

November 23, 2017

Originally, when I pitched this idea, I failed to realize that I would actually have to listen to Taylor Swift’s entire new album, Reputation. I haven't been a fan of her new music, since she had strayed from the country scene, but I was willing to give it a try because it was rumored to actually be...

Omaha Community Playhouse’s “A Christmas Carol” is an Omaha icon—right up there with the huge tree at the Durham Museum or the Holiday Lights Festival downtown. It debuted 42 years ago and has been playing ever since, even going on yearly tours throughout the country, garnering praise from audiences...

“Murder on the Orient Express” Fails to Stay on Track

“Murder on the Orient Express” Fails to Stay on Track

Sam Klemme, Entertainment Editor

November 22, 2017

“Murder on the Orient Express,” a book made movie by Agatha Christie, is an interesting take on the mystery genre. It has a beautiful set and scenery, but it’s plot and character development is lackluster at best. It’s attempts at making a meaningful outcome are overly cluttered and complicated...

Lightning Strikes Again In “Thor: Ragnarok”

Sam Klemme, Entertainment Editor

November 13, 2017

"Thor: Ragnarok," the third in the series, has made some serious improvements from its predecessors. Marvel has slowly started to take itself less seriously and it’s surprisingly better than it might seem. Instead of trying to lace in a serious overtone, the movie just decidesd to focus on more humor...
