Tim Allen returns in the new Disney+ series ‘The Santa Clauses’

By Anna Harman No one is more excited about this series than I am. “The Santa Clause” movies are some of my all-time favorites, and I’ve had the release date for this series on my calendar since it was announced. I think that it is very exciting to see the beloved characters from the original films come back. When filmmakers remake films or do a spin-off series, oftentimes they can’t get the cast to participate in it. But in this series, Tim Allen returns as Santa Claus, Elizabeth ...

‘Adventures in Odyssey: 28 Hours’ ties back to ‘Novacom’ 20 Years Later

By Sophia Monastra I am not the “Adventures in Odyssey” fanatic of my household. That title belongs to my younger sister. I only reap the benefits of her AIO Club account, one of which is access to the latest album, ‘28 Hours.’ Despite this album being written for a younger audience, I found much to enjoy from it. It’s a normal day in the semi-normal small town of Odyssey until someone breaks into the local antique shop, Triple J Antiques. This sets off a chain of events ...

‘Zootopia+’ is a humorous dive into worldbuilding

By Ella Smith After the roaring success of Zootopia it was a surprise there was never a sequel to continue the storyline that brought about such adoration. Now six years later the movie was followed up with a six-episode anthology series, with each episode featuring a side character from the movie, giving more depth to the world of Zootopia and showing different perspectives to many familiar scenes. “Hopp on Board” added insight into Judy’s family There were a couple that I ...

“Disenchanted” is a delightful film with wasted potential

By Janie Walenda Long before “Frozen” made fun of the love at first sight trope, “Enchanted” subverted the Disney fairytale playbook. The 2007 film is hilarious and heartfelt and utilizes its premise to deliver one of the best Disney romances to date. While “Disenchanted” is still a wildly enjoyable movie, it lacks a lot of the cleverness and meaning of its predecessor. The premise by itself is genius. Fifteen years after “Enchanted,” Giselle, Robert, Morgan and new baby ...

‘Black Panther: Wakanda Forever’ is a stunning tribute

By Janie Walenda Not every movie can make me cry before the opening credits roll, but not every movie loses its star seven months before filming. Somehow, “Black Panther: Wakanda Forever” manages to both continue the themes of colonialism and imperialism from the first movie, but also craft a raw, complex portrayal of grief. The actors are the absolute shining jewel of “Wakanda Forever.” There are no weak links in the cast, and there are too many standout performances to count. ...

When did students stop believing in Santa Claus?

By Anna Harman Growing up, Santa Claus was an annual tradition in my house. On Christmas Eve, we would leave cookies and milk on the kitchen counter and rush to bed so Santa could come and bring us gifts. We’d watch him on the “Santa Tracker '' app and then go to bed, although we never could fall asleep. In the morning, we would wake our parents up and go downstairs to see all of the stockings filled and the gifts that he left us.  It wasn’t until I lost a tooth on Christmas ...

‘Andor’ episode 10 rises up in glorious revolt

By Ben Konuch “I would rather die trying to take them down than die giving them what they want.” In the last few episodes, “Andor” has explored complex themes such as oppression, complacency and capitulation to overreaching authorities through the imprisonment of Cassian in one of the biggest metaphors in all of Star Wars. Throughout these episodes, the tension and the danger has gradually built up to a breaking point where Cassian and his fellow prisoners will have to take the ...
