Due to some weaknesses in the story department, ‘The Last of Us Part II’ is not as powerfully resonant as its predecessor. However, this sequel proves worthy in continuing the original’s heartbreaking narrative by providing extensive character development, impactful themes, and beautifully desolate locales.
Despite an interesting concept with a wide-open fantasy world to be creative in, ‘Artemis Fowl’ didn’t even reach the bare minimum to make a film that might be entertaining to young children, let alone adults.
‘Da Five Bloods’ has a great start, but isn’t able to continue that same quality throughout. With a great cast and a standout performance by Boseman plus an interesting story, the movie is a very watchable film, but it still has its problems.
‘Minecraft Dungeons’ is a new entry in Mojang Studios’ sandbox universe that builds on the charm of the base game and adds exciting mechanics that are enjoyable whether you’re playing alone or with friends.
‘Notes on a Conditional Form’ is a true symbol of individuality due to its unique sound and messages that young people can relate to. No previous album comes close to its writing.
While there were a few hiccups in the story and character department, season 7 concludes 'The Clone Wars' in spectacular fashion thanks to its improved animation, substantial emotional weight, and brilliantly executed “Siege of Mandalore” story arc.
Even with some unique visuals and interesting appeals to change the face of hero shooters, 'Bleeding Edge' is another sorrowful, sinful lesson in not just the current state of the genre, but the games industry as a whole. Passionate developers aside, this new MOBA is a bloody mess.
5SOS’s fourth album, 'CALM,' is their best album yet. Their lyricism is the best it's ever been due to their vulnerability, honesty, and authenticity.
George Floyd was a 46-year-old black man. He was murdered in plain sight over the course of nine minutes by men clothed by the state of Minnesota with the immense responsibility for enforcing the law. I am a 54-year-old white man who has spent all of my adult life working as a practicing lawyer and trial court judge. I read Richard Wright’s memoir, “Black Boy” when I was 20, and I didn’t find the above quote to be credible. At 54, after too many tragedies, I now sadly believe it to be truer than not.
Today on National Nature Photography Day, I find myself looking through old pictures I took on my camping trip to the Minnesota/Canada Boundary Waters. For me this was more than just a camping trip, it was a life-changing experience that taught me a lesson that I still reflect on to this day.
I wasn’t ready to go. I stood looking at a fiery sunset as it descended behind the Spanish Sierra Nevada mountains. In front of the mountains, hundreds of colorful panderías, apartments and plazas dotted Granada. My heart felt heavy as I took in the view. That night, I said my final goodbye to this Spanish scene.
When campaigning to become the 2019-20 Student Government Association (SGA) executive slate, Elevate promised to complete 15 platform points.
Gardening is in my roots — pun intended. My mom started gardening because her parents raised her with it. Now, I’ve grown up racing my brother to our garden to see who could pick the most peppers, and who could collect the most flowers for my mom. My mom’s garden helped us learn the payoff of hard work, and how to make healthy choices with our food.
