“Rings of Power” Continues to Chart Its Course

By Janie Walenda One of the most common complaints about this show is that it’s boring. While there is truth in these complaints, “Rings of Power” impressed me the most in its willingness to take its time. Not every storyline needs to be featured every week; we don’t need to rush to introduce every character. I hope that this is a sign of a show that knows exactly where it’s going and how it’s getting there. This week’s episode “The Great Wave” might be the strongest so ...

‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ Continues To Falter

By Samuel M Acosta While “She-Hulk” has had its share of issues, what I didn’t expect to be a problem was a simple lack of content. Normally, the show throws a couple of plots at you and some succeed while others fail to land properly. Yet, episode five has almost the opposite issue: there is barely any plot to speak of. Filler episodes are a common practice in long-running television shows, but when it comes to limited series, they can be killer. Here, it only continues to lower my ...

‘She-Hulk: Attorney At Law’ Loses Momentum

By Samuel M Acosta This week’s episode has both positive and negative elements, but the negatives outweigh the small victories that I saw. Most of the humor here felt cheap, barely worth a small chuckle, and the case that Jen is working on feels unimportant. While there are some cool personal moments that we get to see Jen work through, plus a glimpse at She-Hulk in action, most of this feels adequate at best, which disappointed me after the last episode’s show of promise.  Ep...

Rex Looking for Girlfriend and Lost Friends

by Chris Karenbaur Most students at Cedarville University know about Rex. He is a dino who wanders around campus with his buddy Spider-Man. They are the newest Cedarmemes. And they are usually seen walking around campus, greeting people, or posing for pictures for the Instagram meme pages.

D23 Expo Delivers Mountains of Content

By Janie Walenda Last weekend, Disney had its biennial fan exposition D23 for members of its official fan club, also named D23. Aside from the exclusive merchandise, costume contests, and exhibits, this event is known for providing first looks at upcoming Disney projects. While some first looks are exclusive to the expo halls – unless they’re leaked – Disney took this chance to release several trailers and announcements about upcoming Disney, Pixar, Marvel Studios, and Lucasfilm ...

Cedarville Women’s Cross Country Dominates Under the Lights

By: Alan Brads Hundreds of women from across Ohio stand with bated breath, gazing at a man 50 yards away, illuminated only by portable stadium lights and the waning moon. The buzz of the crowd becomes a murmur, pierced by an occasional shout as anticipation mounts. The whistle blows, then silence. Time freezes, the runners are statues. BANG. An eruption of cheers and the stampede of 334 runners from over 30 universities kick off the 2022 All-Ohio Intercollegiate cross-country champi...

Cedarville Improves to 2-1-0 in the GMAC with Win Over Trevecca

By: Alan Brads The Cedarville University men’s soccer team squeezed by the Trevecca Nazarene University Trojans 1-0 on September 15.  Jake Johnson netted the lone goal off a penalty kick in the 63rd minute. As soon as the head referee blasted his whistle and pointed to the penalty mark, Johnson confidently strolled to his starting spot to take the kick. “I went into the game already thinking about where I would put the penalty kick if we got one,” Johnson said. “I ...
