Winter Music Concert

By Lauren Olszaniecki

As guests filed past the assorted raffle baskets, the harmonious sounds of the string octet echoed off the walls of the rapidly filling auditorium.

It Was Okay; A Star Wars the Rise of Skywalker Review

By Lia Marchione

WARNING: SPOILERS

As one of the first people in the country to see this movie, I’d like to say that I’m one of the most qualified people to talk about it. In actuality, this is not true at all, because I am extraordinarily biased against it. Continue reading “It Was Okay; A Star Wars the Rise of Skywalker Review”

Battle of the Batmobiles

By Brock McPherson

One of the most iconic vehicles in film history is the Batmobile, there’s no denying that. A problem does arise, however from its 50 year history on screen, and that problem is that there have been four different live-action Batmobiles, all completely different.

The fastest and most dangerous level of drag racing is Top Fuel. Continue reading “An Introduction to Nitromethane”
