We found ourselves nestled into a Super 8 on the outskirts of Nashville, Tennessee next door to an all night jazz club that wasn’t going to stop playing music until 3 in the morning. This wasn’t how my mom and I expected to be spending Thanksgiving break together, but we were thankful for a place to sleep and time to spend together.

Has the public finally given into superhero fatigue or is it all a lie? Looking at it, I don’t think it’s superhero movies that have the problem. In fact, superhero movies are the exception considering how well they do. The problem isn't from with superheroes, but with Hollywood itself.
A turkey roasts in the oven while rolls cook to a golden brown below it. The house is warm from all the baking going on, and a sugar cookie candle burns on the corner table. I help myself to some finger foods -- a cheese cube and salami platter -- while grandma cooks the green beans on the stove across from me.
“Some Guy” largely felt like a waste of time. Ezekiel isn’t the most interesting character to begin with, but the writers do try to make him more normal by the end of the episode. Hopefully that change in attitude sticks. This episode also added another character to the list of deaths that didn’t need to happen and had no emotional pull. R.I.P. Shiva and Jerry’s axe.
Nickelodeon has now dug itself into a hole, relying too much on “cheap” and “safe” entertainment, allowing competitors like Cartoon Network and Disney XD to dominate in the cartoon industry. Without a major change in direction, Nickelodeon may never revive the success of the Splat-era Nicktoons. But what catalyst could incite such a drastic change? Well, as it turns out, Dan Schneider.
‘Reputation’ was supposed to be a total reinvention for Taylor Swift, but all of the least endearing aspects of her old music are still here in droves. “Don’t Blame Me” is fun to sing along to and “Getaway Car” might actually be the best pop song of the year, but the rest of the album does not live up to the standards of a few isolated tracks. Sure, it has a lot of catchy tunes, but it’s much more memorable for its bitter attitude and its laughable implementation of hip-hop and trap influences.
Disappointed by the lack of new Alolan forms in Pokemon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon? You can always find fun and fake Pokemon around the Internet.
It might even revolutionize the idea of sci-fi multiplayer shooters as more focus is given to gameplay and being player and consumer friendly with a fully fleshed out game. Perhaps it is time for gamers to start demanding finished products with compelling expansions instead of sections of a game being stripped out and resold in season passes.
Over the many years that the Justice League has existed in the comics it has had over one hundred members coming in for varying amounts of time, and honestly some of them probably could have just stayed out.
“Doubling Down” is both funny and brilliant. It’s interesting to see South Park handle the toxicity of abusive relationships in such a powerful manner while simultaneously making a socially relevant point.
Overall, Wolfenstein II:The New Colossus is a fantastic single-player first-person shooter with beautifully written characters and spot-on performances. The story greatly expands upon the world of Wolfenstein with B.J. and his friends fighting to save America from the oppressive Nazis, with a memorable villain like Frau Engel being a formidable adversary to B.J. Blazkowicz. Fans of the series and of first-person shooters who want an exciting story will enjoy this game with its approximately 14-hour campaign that gets them to mowing down plenty of Nazis in a colorful grotesque fashion.
“God does not love you, God is madly in love with you.” These were the simple words that Father Anthony, a visiting priest, spoke to the congregation. He spoke of the sacrifice, of the suffering, that Christ endured for us, each and every one of us, each and every member of humanity.
"Monsters" embraces the goofy comic book feel the show has been headed towards for a while at the cost of drama and horror. By far one of the most entertaining watches of the season (or series for that matter), "Monsters" continues the Walking Dead’s tradition of taking two steps backward for every step forward it makes with fantastic consequences.
'Super Mario Odyssey' is a worthy successor to the 3D Mario games and an incredible addition to the Nintendo Switch library. The possession mechanic brings Mario’s adventure into a whole new light that keeps the player’s curiosity going. Despite Odyssey’s few flaws, the ample amount of creative moon challenges and the phenomenal level design make the game feel like an escape, encouraging the player to let out their inner child.
'Assassin’s Creed Origins' is a refreshing and exciting addition to the Assassin’s Creed franchise. While it is bogged down by the side quests and the in-game store, these are surpassed by its engaging story and characters, its complex and exciting combat system, and its loads of content. It is a revitalization of a stagnant franchise and will hopefully take future Assassin's Creed games in a new direction.
As I sit here and eat my oatmeal, I scroll through my various forms of news websites that I follow. I’m scrolling through funny twitter posts and hysterical memes on Buzzfeed until I stumble across a photo of a child.
The overwhelming forces against the Dark Universe project must have been too great for them, and they left Universal. The Bride of Frankenstein has also been shelved indefinitely, which is essentially a stake in the coffin of this creativity-sucking Dracula of a cinematic universe.
'Bubsy: The Woolies Strike Back' is a mediocre reboot of a franchise famous for mediocrity. It’s no surprise that the game isn’t that great; it’s source material was bad as well. The real crime of this game is that the devs think charging $30 for a two-hour indie game is acceptable. For some perspective, the absolutely amazing 'Cuphead' is $10 cheaper for a much longer gameplay experience. 'Claws Encounters of the Furred Kind' even had more levels and playtime, so there’s no excuse for this. The only reason this game has to exist is to be bargain bin meme trash bought for friends or enemies on the Steam Summer Sale.
Jigsaw' provides a satisfying entry point for newcomers to the series. While it doesn’t pack the same punch as the original regarding blood or plot, there is still plenty of fun to be found throughout for old and new fans alike.
