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 […]

Movie review – Minari

Review by: Raghav Raj Directed by: Lee Isaac Chung Rating: 9/10 Right from the very beginning, Minari feels utterly, unmistakably entrancing. It is shot in warm, gentle hues by cinematographer Lachlan Milne, who fills the screen with these muted oranges, lush greens, and rich, earthy browns. These colors are met with woozy, contemplative scoring from Emile Mosseri, whose strings and […]

Album Review – Little Oblivions

Review by: Rachel Cai Artist: Julien Baker Rating: 8.5/10 Julien Baker’s Little Oblivions, is a heart-wrenching chronicle of substance abuse, her struggle with faith, and her path to recovery. Her third solo album — and her first project since 2018’s collaborative Boygenius EP — is a self-produced, multi-instrumental affair, one where most of the performances are by Baker herself.  Most […]

Series Creator: Chris Van Dusen Rating: 8/10 Review by: Abby Waechter Taking place in a fictional 19th century English society, the eight-part Netflix series Bridgerton has romance, drama, comedy, and scandal.  Although it’s undoubtedly a cliché when love prevails and the guy gets the girl, Bridgerton successfully pulls it off, a chaotic tale of courtship between the Duke of Hastings and […]

Album Review: Whole Lotta Red

Artist: Playboi Carti Rating: 8/10 Review by: Raghav Raj In many ways, Playboi Carti’s latest album, Whole Lotta Red, is unlike anything else happening in mainstream hip-hop right now.  Despite its affinity for sticky melodies and even stickier hooks, it has no obligations towards any of the viral trends that artists have latched on to. It barely has anything that […]

Movie Review: Wonder Woman 1984

Director: Patty Jenkins Rating: 2/10 Review by: Raghav Raj After the rousing success of Patty Jenkins’ 2017 reboot of Wonder Woman, the idea of a sequel held the sort of promise that DC hadn’t honestly seen since Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy warped the superhero film into something far more morose and brooding.  In the face of films that followed […]
