A tale as old as time hits the big screen

A tale as old as time hits the big screen

By Jessica Sierocki, photo editor. If you haven’t seen the live-action adaptation of “Beauty and the Beast” in theaters yet, my only question for you is why not?

“Rouge One”: Mission Failure

“Rouge One”: Mission Failure

by Cameron Kerkau, managing editor.  Audiences have known the end of the story told in “Rogue One” since 1977, which means it’s a movie that really needed to prove that it was worth making.

Sausage Party review – A “wiener” of a film

By Jessica Sierocki, Photojournalist. Warning: the following review may or may not contain horrible food puns (and I’m not sorry).

Review – The Witch: Horror film displays darkness of humanity

Review – The Witch: Horror film displays darkness of humanity

By Cameron Kerkau, Staff Reporter. I think it’s natural to look back at the Salem Witch Trials with condescension. It’s disappointing to think of the mass hysteria that plagued colonial America that led to twenty executions. All because those silly 17th century Puritans believed in witches.
