Album Review: Red (Taylor’s Version)

Review by: Isabelle Paley Artist: Taylor Swift Rating: 4.5/5 Taylor Swift’s re-recording of a majority of her discography is a monumental feat for her career as an artist.  The rerecording of Red, the perfect fall heartbreak album, combines Swift’s 2012 lyrics with her 2021 voice. Swift merged her country roots with songs such as “Everything Has Changed” and modern pop […]

Movie Review: No time to Die

Review by: Aditya Thiyag Director: Cary Joji Fukunaga Rating: 4.5/5 No Time To Die is a drama first and an action spectacle second. That’s what makes it a perfect conclusion to Daniel Craig’s run as James Bond. If there was one word I’d use to describe this film, it would be consequence. Every action Bond takes in this film and […]

TV REVIEW – Squid Game

Review by: Aditya Thiyag Creator: Hwang Dong-hyuk Rating: 4/5 “The Blue Danube” is a German waltz composed in 1866 that’s pervaded pop culture for years on end, to the point where even Spongebob Squarepants featured an interpolation of it in a jellyfishing scene. But you’d be hard-pressed to find someone in 2021 who doesn’t associate the tune with the signaling […]

Movie review: Godzilla vs. Kong

Review by: Scott Reckers Director: Adam Wingard Rating 7/10 Godzilla may be the “King of the Monsters,” but Kong bows to no one. The two stars of the ‘Monsterverse’ have finally clashed together, and the promise of a visual spectacle is fulfilled.

Movie Opinion – A missed OPPORTUNITY

Raghav Raj | Staff Writer In an awards season flipped on its head now that COVID-19 has left most movie theaters shuttered for a year, rendering the box office almost all but irrelevant, few films have received the amount of plaudits that Chloe Zhao’s Nomadland has. And, many might argue, for good reason. Zhao’s third feature film is a visually […]

Movie Review – Raya and the Last Dragon

Review by: Della Johnson Directed by: Don Hall, Carlos Lopez Estrada Rating: 7/10 Disney’s newest princess film felt very familiar. As a strong female warrior with a sarcastic dragon sidekick, Raya certainly mirrored Mulan, the other princess to hail from an Asian country, and her consistent travel by boat lent itself a bit to Moana. Still, the movie itself fostered […]
