Animated films tap into child-like innocence

Izzy Gaspar’raj | The Chronicle Simplicity, empowerment and happy endings. Those three reasons are why Disney movies are my absolute favorite type of video entertainment. Though some may make the argument that Disney, as well as other animated films like Pixar movies, have ultra-simplified plots and not enough focus on the magical elements of it, I believe that this simplified […]

Fly high, Class of 2022

Aditya Thiyag | The Chronicle Everyone’s heard of a coming-of-age story. A classic tale of a teenager transitioning into adulthood and finally realizing what to do with their lives while they overcome their inner conflict and climatically find themself as the credits roll on a film or the last page of a book or the closing track of an album.

Involvement trumps position We have a lot of organizations here at MHS. From smaller clubs focusing on the most niche of hobbies to larger ones hoping to spark change within the student body, there is a club or organization for every interest imaginable.

Growing up is not a movie

Della Johnson | Editor-in-Chief I wrote my CommonApp essay about my baby blankets. I was hypervigilant and over-caffeinated, shivering in the middle of July.

Thank you for bringing us together

Abby Waechter | Managing Editor “It’s just a game,” is what I wanted to say after I saw the Mason Girls Basketball team walking off of the court in tears Saturday night after clawing their way to the State final, and losing in overtime to the Reynoldsburg Raiders.  Looking back on it now, I’ve discovered that this wasn’t the case.

The poor prioritization of visuals in film

Aditya Thiyag | The Chronicle Film is a visual medium. It’s a phrase that I’ve heard before, but it’s something that I didn’t really understand until recently. Last week, I watched Birdman or The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance and The Lighthouse – two wildly different films each with unreal performances, inventive screenplays, and compelling characters.
