Dune brings the desert alive through out of this world cinematic skills
Dune The Newest Oscar Worthy Sci-Fi Movie
Amelie Panaccione, Jr. Editor in Chief • November 19, 2021

Dune is the newest movie by producer and 2017 academy award nominee Denis Villeneuve. This film is an epic adaptation of the 1965 sci-fi novel by Frank Herbert and stars Timothy Chalamet and Rebecca Ferguson and features Zendaya. This motion picture truly encapsulates the fictional world of Arrakis, a desert wasteland with native people called the Fremen fighting against the reigning Houses in power...

       Music that makes one feel sorrowful or downcast is popular among the youth of today.
Why You Like Sad Music
Lucca Swain, Staff Writer • November 19, 2021

Music is, in and of itself, abstract art. Despite being nothing but sound, music manages to invoke so many emotions from across the spectrum. It invites us to other worlds, tempts us with visions of realities different to ours, so similar but so fantastical, through nothing but a creative assembly of sounds. Though from the furious peaks of metal to the cold, amorphous glow of ambient music, one type...

The End Of The F***ing World handles teenage love and angst better than most of its contemporaries
"The End Of The F***ing World" is a Beautiful Tragedy, and One of the Best Teen Dramas Out There
Lucca Swain, Staff Writer • November 19, 2021

The End Of The F***ing World is as dramatic as the name implies, even if the world isn’t actually ending. But for the show's teenage leads, the world truly seems to be falling apart at the seams. The two can’t seem to get anything they try right despite their efforts, and it’s that constant struggle that makes The End Of The F***ing World so likeable, in a weird, cruel way. There are no last-minute...

There isn’t much better than being scared during the Halloween season.
Scary Stories, Movies, And Music To Keep You Up This Halloween
Lucca Swain, Staff Writer • November 2, 2021

1408, Stephen King Stephen King is widely credited as the king of horror and for good reason. All of his stories are masterful in their command of fear. But the short story 1408 is, in my opinion, some of his best work. The story follows a schlock horror writer who secretly doesn’t believe in ghosts, but hears of a hotel room that many have claimed to be truly haunted. Despite the warnings from...

Netflix popular show Lucifer recently released its final season off the series.
Lucifer: Redeeming the Devil One Crime at a Time
Annika Bjorklund , Editor-in-chief • November 1, 2021

Halloween is approaching and 'tis the season for creepy, kooky, haunted movies and shows. Personally, the first movies that come to mind when I think of Halloween are the classic Disney movies from my childhood. Who doesn’t love the nostalgic feeling that Halloweentown or Hocus Pocus can bring? Unfortunately, I have outgrown these movies. The new show that has replaced my nostalgic love is even better,...

Animation: A 3-Decrease in Quality
Clara Thomas , Arts and Entertainment Editor • November 1, 2021

Like many children my age who grew up in that specific gray area before the domination of iPhones and other electronics, I was raised on cartoons. A strange mix of PBS Kids, 3D animated movies and old Disney cartoons were staples of my youth. Given my childish love of fairy tales and short stories (and given that 3D animation was still a work in progress that often yielded clunky characters and badly...
