Born to Run too long

By Charles Lott | Jan. 15, 2017, 7:58 p.m. | In Books »

Much like the Boss's (Bruce Springsteen's) famous concerts, his new autobiography Born to Run runs a little over time. The book serves as a guide to the prolific singer/songwriter's life, and is a must-read for any Springsteen fan or 20th century music aficionado, but the lengthy descriptions of his inspiration and medical health are a bit much.

A collateral mess: Collateral Beauty disappoints

By Alyssa Berrios | Dec. 26, 2016, 9:53 a.m. | In Movies »

Will Smith fans may have been eager to hear that he would be acting in a new movie, Collateral Beauty. However, half an hour into the film and Collateral Beauty seemed like a never-ending story heading nowhere.Collateral Beauty is a modern-day "Christmas Carol" without the feeling of wanting to watch it over again.


Rogue One heck of a movie

By Pedraam Faridjoo | Dec. 26, 2016, 9:26 a.m. | In Entertainment »

In this age of tired remakes and reboots, it's easy to be cynical. Popular franchises (I'm looking at you, The Hobbit) release low-quality, uninspired hogwash to trick dedicated viewers into paying money for movies they don't need.But, Rogue One proved to be different.

"Moana" makes waves

By Sandeep David | Nov. 27, 2016, 2:12 p.m. | In Movies »

The Disney princess franchise hits the mark again with "Moana", the story of a chief's daughter (not a princess), Moana (Auli'i Cravalho), who takes an adventure on the sea with the company of a shape-shifting demigod, Maui (Dwayne Johnson), and an irritating but lovably dim witted rooster to save the world from complete ecological destruction (pretty standard, as Disney films go). Though the plot may drag a little, "Moana" is a heartfelt and exciting movie for all.


The play's the thing

By Eleanor Cook | Nov. 22, 2016, 12:57 p.m. | In Plays »

In this modern-day rendition of Shakespeare's classic tragedy, complete with selfies and sweater vests, Blair theater brings Hamlet to life. With a wonderful cast and set, the play is two-hours well-spent.


Martha and Snoop's "Potluck Dinner" is dope

By Charles Lott | Nov. 14, 2016, 2:04 p.m. | In Television »

Martha Stewart and Snoop Dogg's new VH1 cooking show "Potluck Dinner" premiered Monday, inciting laughter and hunger in viewers.

Doctor Strange strangely familiar

By Nate Bodner | Nov. 8, 2016, 9:49 a.m. | In Movies »

Doctor Strange takes the very familiar story line of foolish pride, followed by the inevitable action that brings his success to a sad end, that you don't have to know the Dr. Strange comics to be able to figure out. However, this film provides enough mind-bending effects, humor, and good acting to keep this movie fresh in a time of formulaic, "tried and true" superhero movies.


Halloween movie marathon extravaganza

By Pedraam Faridjoo | Oct. 30, 2016, 12:26 a.m. | In Movies »

With October 31 lurking just around the corner, it is now time to prepare for my favorite holiday. Although decorating houses, carving pumpkins, following people around at night dressed like a clown and choosing which candy to give out are all fun, the best activity is a Halloween movie marathon.

The Legend of Tarzan: A Successful Swing

By Zoe Friedman | Aug. 21, 2016, 12:41 p.m. | In Movies »

The Legend of Tarzan packs intense action, gripping mystery, comedy and, yes, gorilla fights, into a mere 1 hour 50 minutes. The movie leaves viewers exhilarated and wanting more.


The Infiltrator somehow sneaks into theaters

By Ryan Handel | Aug. 1, 2016, 3:47 p.m. | In Movies »

Despite a talented cast and a compelling premise, The Infiltrator is an overall let-down. With too little exposition and too many moving parts, the movie is difficult to follow. A strong lead performance by Bryan Cranston, who plays undercover agent Robert Mazur, is not enough to overcome the vague plot and the many seemingly repetitive scenes.


A shark. A girl. Oh no!

By Alyssa Berrios | July 11, 2016, 9:54 a.m. | In Movies »

With heart-stopping suspense and an intriguing climax, "The Shallows" brings many beachgoers' fear of sharks alive. The survival film includes many action-packed moments and is a modern-day 'Jaws,' woman versus nature (in the form of a gargantuan great white shark) thriller that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats with its riveting plot and detailed graphics.


An a-dory-ble sequel to Finding Nemo

By Mehana Daftary | June 20, 2016, 12:25 p.m. | In Movies »

Announced in 2013, Finding Dory truly lived up to the high expectations set by the well-lovedFinding Nemo, with central themes of familial love and never giving up. Childish humor, suspenseful moments and tear-jerking scenes make this movie a must see for audiences young and old.
