A Disappointing Miracle

A Disappointing Miracle

Sam Lavely, Sports Editor

September 14, 2018

  Seeing that the A&E section has been dissolved due to the departure of Kai the A&E guy, I thought the summer issue would be a fitting issue to throw a movie review into the mix, of course making it relevant to the sports page. As far as classic sports movies go in Minnesota, “Miracle”...

  3.5 million people in the U.S. suffer from schizophrenia, 5.7 million suffer from bipolar disorder and 200,000 people suffer from multiple personality disorders. Psychology Today classifies these three illnesses as the worst mental ailments to live with.   Despite this fact, the majority...

Avengers: Infinity War

Kai Christiansen, A&E Editor

March 11, 2018

  Avengers: infinity War is the most recent film in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, and the climax of a 10 year storyline; a series which, despite a few duds, has been an overall above average series. Before watching this film, I contemplated skipping it due to a two and a half hour runtime, and...

Deadpool 2

Kai Christiansen, A&E Editor

March 11, 2018

  Deadpool 2 opens with a depressed Wade Wilson trying to kill himself, unsuccessfully of course. Right away I was on board, it seemed as though they were trying to humanize Deadpool. Granted all of this is handled very lightly, and it’s debatable if Deadpool is actually depressed, but from my...

“mother!”

“mother!”

Cole Seager, Staff Writer

November 1, 2017

 “mother!” is frustrating. The new film from Darren Aronofsky centers around a nameless wife ( Jennifer Lawrence) and her likewise nameless husband ( Javier Bardem). The husband is a creatively bankrupt poet looking for inspiration. The wife tends to the house and makes sure her husband is happy....

“Blade Runner 2049”

“Blade Runner 2049”

Scott Larsen, Staff Writer

November 1, 2017

  Blade Runner 2049, the latest from Denis Villeneuve, is a hard sci-fi masterpiece.   Going into this film, my expectations were already significantly high. How could they not be with a cast and crew filled with some of the most talented figures in the business today? Denis Villeneuve, the...

“Wind River”

“Wind River”

Scott Larsen, Staff Writer

October 18, 2017

  Wind River, the directorial debut of Sicario and Hell or High Water screenwriter Taylor Sheridan, is a gritty and unapologetic thriller that never relieves you of its intensity. Starring Jeremy Renner, Elizabeth Olsen, and Gil Birmingham, this film follows a hunter (Renner) who helps an FBI agent (Olsen)...

“Good Time”

“Good Time”

Cole Seager, Staff Writer

October 18, 2017

  With it’s uncomfortably tight cinematography and subdued acting, Good Time grabs you within the very first scene and doesn’t let you go. The film follows Connie (Robert Pattinson) in a pulse-pounding, neon-bathed game of cat and mouse following a failed bank robbery, as he attempts to evade...

“Death Note”

“Death Note”

Kai Christiansen, A&E Editor

September 15, 2017

  Death Note is an adaptation of a highly revered anime of the same name and stars Nat Wolff, Lakeith Stanfield, and Margaret Qualley and is directed by Adam Wingard.   I use the terms “stars” and “directed” loosely as I’m not sure if what I watched was even a movie. Every scene...
