Sydney Hallett, Online Editor-In-Chief

May 14, 2015

I do not know anyone who likes superhero movies more than me. So when I went to see Avengers: Age of Ultron, I was so much in disappointment from the lack of creativity that Director Joss Whedon seemed to show in the film. The second movie in the Avengers franchise, Age of Ultron grouped back some o...

The Delirium series by Lauren Oliver was a trilogy I will not be forgetting soon. It is a dystopian, futuristic based series in which love is considered a disease, called Amor Deliria Nervosa.

The producers, writers, directors and cast did an amazing job of keeping the movie parallel to the book through this action-packed and heart-wrenching sequel to Divergent. Through character development,...

Walking into St. Louis’ beautiful Fox Theatre on Wednesday, March 4 on Opening Night, I knew that the  US Phantom of the Opera Tour would be the best musical I would ever see.

The DUFF succeeds for teen viewers

February 23, 2015

Most high school movies tell you absolutely nothing about high school and give students unrealistic expectations about freshman through senior year. Whether students burst out into song, get in drama with the different cliques, or are run over a school bus, most movies don’t help with the eighth grader’s...

December 15, 2014

Although I only saw the first How to Train Your Dragon film, I saw enough scenes from the sequel to call it my favorite. I found it absolutely amazing that DreamWorks had once again made another masterpiece of a movie and created the perfect, if not dramatically emotional, plotline for How to Train Your...

December 15, 2014

This makes me slightly depressed….one of my favorite late night night shows is coming to an end this year. The Late Late Night Show with Craig Ferguson will never be the same without its lovable, hilarious, Scottish host. Ferguson announced that he will be leaving the show and possibly taking his talking...
