I Prevail nails it with ‘Trauma’

Justin Garner, Reporter

April 9, 2019

The development of I Prevail is incredible.  Going from a really good metalcore album to a potential game changer, they just won't stop getting better.  I remember telling a friend right after we heard the Heart vs. Mind EP, "These guys are going to be one of the biggest bands on the planet by their third album."  This did nothing but make m...

Mazzio’s buffet fills the stomach

Mazzio’s buffet fills the stomach

March 27, 2019

I am not originally a fan of pizza, but Mazzio's surprised me. My boyfriend and I arrived at Mazzio's March 25 to try it out for the first time. We were warmly welcomed at the door by a nice young lady and she helped us decide on the buffet. Mazzio's has a variety of options from calzones to pasta...

On a whim, my boyfriend and I went to dinner at El Tapatio March 4. We arrived at about 6 p.m. and were sat almost immediately. Our waiter came to get our drink orders and within ten minutes of being sat and getting my drink, I was able to order my dinner and have it placed in front of me. The feel...

Venom is fun, but not well-written

Venom is fun, but not well-written

October 31, 2018

The pace of Venom is fast, choppy, and a little hard to follow due to both the writing and editing of the storyline. The journey that Venom's nemesis, the symbiote Riot, makes to get to its final destination is one of the reasons that it becomes so confusing. The audience sees sporadic footage of the symbi...

It is apparent that Warner Bros. does not have a solid plan for its DC film universe. Every bit of news regarding the latest endeavor, "Justice League," has been about last-minute changes to the film, including the reshoots that took up an estimated 25-50 percent of the finished project. News about future movies in t...

"Blade Runner 2049" is a film that I have wanted to see ever since its announcement. With brilliant auteur Denis Villeneuve at the helm and one of my favorite modern actors, Ryan Gosling, set to star in the movie, I could not help but get excited. With so much anticipation for this film, there ...

    "Kingsman: The Secret Service" was a breath of fresh air for the spy genre. Matthew Vaughn's style and visual flair blended with a conventional coming-of-age story made for a refreshing spy movie. The film parodied conventional spy flicks and overall made a mockery of the silliness of spy t...

A good sense of direction. Great acting. Beautiful cinematography. They all enhance a movie. However, none are as crucial to holding a movie together as character. Character is the avenue by which the writer gets the film's message across. A good character can tell us a lot about life. We, as an ...

Like most broke college students, we usually get hungry, especially when the dining halls are closed. This rang true for me on Labor Day. Mesquite Dining Hall was the only on campus restaurant open, and the food did not look appetizing. Thanks to my love of food, especially of the Asian variety, I set...
