  Most of the college students I know love the arts across a broad range of outlets and interests, ranging from professional interests to hobbies.

  It is not uncommon to learn to enjoy something which one previously found boring. After all, many five-year-olds subsist on strict preferences of macaroni, chicken nuggets and mashed potatoes until their parents force them to try broccoli. Bands we find uninspiring worm their way into our playlists...

  Many people can give thanks to filmmakers like Walt Disney, Hayao Miyazaki and Jim Henson for creating meaningful children's content and making childhoods more sunny, hopeful and inspired. Nonetheless, we've all seen bizarre cash grab kids' flicks. Some occasionally endure as cult classics...

  Here’s the scenario — the civil rights movement is blazing across America, kids are being shipped in scads to fight a war that grows increasingly unethical every day and television has never been better. Every week, viewers escape from the dreary paranoia of the late ’60s with “Space:...

June 10, 2019

  Warning: This article contains spoilers.  What is the cost of a lie? HBO’s new miniseries, “Chernobyl,” gives a rather satisfying answer to this question. Set in April 1986 under the influence of the Ukrainian SSR, this miniseries documents one of the worst nuclear disasters in ...

  Warning: this review contains spoilers. “Aladdin” was surprisingly less-cringe worthy than I expected it to be. Disney’s 2019 string of live-action remakes, beginning with “Dumbo” last March and ending with “The Lion King” this July, seems like just another attempt to bring i...

  This article is spoiler free. It's not common that I walk out of a movie theater with a clear, non-conflicted opinion of a film. I've mastered the art of nitpicking and can usually find something wrong with the acting, the cinematography, poorly written dialogue or plot points, lack of character deve...

Game Corner: ‘Unheard’

By Yixin Song

April 27, 2019

  It is always hard to review games that are built solely on narrative without revealing any spoilers. You can talk about the intense fights, art styles and why characters are in their current situation, but it is almost impossible to analyze elements such as the map design in "Gone Home" separ...
