Strange is the new awesome

November 1, 2017

Go microwave some Eggos and find a quiet place, because after one year, three months, and 12 days, Stranger Things’ second season has dropped on Netflix, and it was well worth the wait. Consisting of nine episodes, one more than last time, this season...

Tara’s Take: Twitter trauma

Tara Routie, Staff Reporter

November 1, 2017

Filed under Editorials

Trump was recently accused of disrespecting a deceased soldier’s family during his phone call with the widow to express his condolences. Regardless of whose side you are on, we will never know what actually happened unless the phone call is released. That didn’t stop the topic from blowing up on twitter though.

Death from the start

Death from the start

October 16, 2017

Filed under Our Take

Missed drumlines, cancelled pep-rallies, an inactive student section, rained out games... A few weeks into to the year, the excitement seemed to disappear. How did this happen? We came blame Hurricane Irma, which caused plans to be rushed and postponed. It started with the most anticipated game of the year, Hagerty versus Oviedo, held on a Thursday night.

“It” can’t keep plot afloat

September 25, 2017

The first scene in the “It”  movie was horrifying, well done and strikingly familiar. For anyone who knows the story of “It”, whether from the book or the 1990 mini-series, a little boy in a raincoat chasing a paper boat down a street has be...

Stop comparing Death Note film with anime, they both kill

September 7, 2017

One of my biggest pet peeves about film audiences is that they have a hard time understanding the term “adaptation.” This is especially true with adaptations of anime. In the past, Dragon Ball Evolution, Speed Racer and this year’s Ghost in the...

The Comic Critic: The downsides of being iconic

August 28, 2017

They are heroes that transcend the silver screen and become ingrained in popular culture. They are the heroes you see people casually wear shirts of in the mall. They are the heroes that, if you mention them to someone, no matter who they are, they’d...
