Concert Review: Travis Scott(0)

December 12, 2018

Before arriving to TD Garden on Sunday night the 2nd of December, I was so unbelievably excited to see Travis Scott perform his most recent album, AstroWorld, but once I got there my opinion suddenly changed. Don’t get me wrong, it was a super fun concert, my best friend and I had a great time,… Read More ›

Movie Review: Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch

As we enter the holiday season, movie production companies are rushing to make a profit from the Christmas spirit of the consumer, turning classic Christmas stories into something new and exciting. At the top of every little kid’s movie list this year is Illumination’s new cartoon adaption of Dr. Seuss’ the Grinch. The original adaption… Read More ›

Concert Review: Twenty One Pilots

My friend Tina and I saw Twenty One Pilots at TD Garden in Boston during their recent Bandito tour, on October 26. We have both loved them since 8th grade, and this concert experience did not disappoint. Let me take you there: We are preoccupied; the crowd is throwing disk-shaped glow sticks all around the… Read More ›

Movie Review: Venom

When it comes to movies, there’s nothing that leaves me more contented than a good superhero film. It helps that we’re at a point where superhero movies are everywhere nowadays. However, where there are superheroes, there are also villains not far behind. This statement also applies to film, most particularly the movie, Venom. This is… Read More ›

Movie Review: The Hate U Give

The movie The Hate U Give, directed by George Tillman Jr., and based on the book written by Angie Thomas, is a stunning tribute to being a black youth in the United States.  Amandla Stenberg delivers a vivid performance of the complexities of Starr Carter’s experience: watching her childhood love die at the hands of… Read More ›

Movie Review: Call Me By Your Name

Romance movies come out every year, and they are often popular for relatable and lovable clichés and happy endings. They are what you wish love truly felt like– a wonderful funny mess of emotions, and a warm happy marriage. But not all love is like that. Some movies are unrealistic in their portrayal of an… Read More ›

Movie Review: Isle of Dogs

It has been almost a decade since director Wes Anderson returned to the tedious world of stop-motion animation. In that time, he has made two widely successful movies, Moonrise Kingdom and The Grand Budapest Hotel, and has been nominated for more than a few Oscars. Now he is back with his latest film, Isle of… Read More ›

Movie Review– Pacific Rim: Uprising

This is not Guillermo Del-Toro’s Pacific Rim. The sequel to the widely-acclaimed action film by Del-Toro fails to rise up to its predecessor’s stature. Featuring Steven S. DeKnight in his directorial debut, Pacific Rim: Uprising clocks in at 111 minutes of pure nonsense. In the Pacific Rim universe, war is waged between human kind and… Read More ›

Movie Review: “Get Out”

What is the secret ingredient in a horror movie that frightens rational, educated grown-ups and causes them to have nightmares? Whatever “it” is, countless so-called horror movies have failed spectacularly over the years, especially during the last two decades.  But fortunately for horror fans, Jordan Peele, the director of the Academy Award-nominated movie “Get Out,”… Read More ›

Movie Review: Beauty and the Beast

Growing up in the 90’s, Disney princess movies were a key part of my childhood.  Beauty and the Beast, originally released in 1991, was never a particular favorite of mine. The dark aesthetic of the film, and frankly, the beast himself, scared 4-year-old me. But as I got older, Beauty and the Beast became one… Read More ›
