I went in to Guardians of the Galaxy 2 with relatively high expectations; when the original came out a couple years back, I saw it in theaters at least 3 times. The first movie was a near perfect blend of sci-fi, action, and comedy, with well built characters, flashy visuals and hilarious dialogue. Its ...

One word: Cardboard. Let's get something straight, that Before I Fall is not your average “cry-your-eyes-out-because-you’re-single” film. Although there is promised romance and emotion, the movie ultimately doesn’t deliver. It almost reminded me of cardboard: boring and plain. As a total...

The best movie of 2017 so far. This movie was one of the best films I have seen in a long time. Emma Watson (Belle) and Dan Stevens (Beast) provided a wonderful blend of voices. I loved the soundtrack more than the story itself. The classic sounds were completely reborn by the amusing voices of the 20...

Logan made me cry.   Logan is the culmination of 17 years of the best portrayal of one of comic’s most famous and loved characters. Wolverine, as most know him, is not the man he was when we last saw him. His healing factor is slowing, and he is a shell of his former self. The film revolves...

The administration in Rockwood takes fighting far too seriously. “Fighting, as far as inside this building, doesn’t happen very often,” Dr. Greg Mathison, head principal, said. However, non-physical bullying has become almost a social norm for today’s high school population. It is commonplace...

As many sports fans across the Lou know, the St. Louis Blues recently fired their head coach after 6 NHL seasons with the Blues. Ken Hitchcock had not produced adequate results for the team and was supposedly disliked by some of the players. Being a die-hard hockey fan, I believe that this was a good chan...

Frankly, hall passes are insulting

“Don’t leave without a pass!” a teacher says. “Where are you going?” the hall monitors and principals demand incessantly. Sound familiar? Welcome to MHS, which is actually an elementary school in disguise. The oldest of us are 18, adults, and yet, we’re still expected to carry hall...

The ACT is a test which all High schoolers take during our junior years. As a university preparation test, the exam has dramatic implications on college acceptance, scholarships, and future internships. The setup of the ACT is easy to understand.
