“See How They Run” – The Whodunit Returns with Flair
By Kathryn McDonald
A recent rise in interest surrounding true crime stories and unsolved mysteries has led to a revival of interest in mystery books, tv shows, and movies. From G. K. Chesterton’s “Father Brown” to A. C. Doyle’s “Sherlock Holmes,” fans love seeing directors take a fresh cinematic approach to timeless classics.
As a new generation of mystery enthusiasts rediscover these timeless tales, Agatha Christie’s classic works have been revisited again and again. Most ...
“The Giver” is a Chilling Discussion on the Importance of Memory and Choice
By Sophia Monastra
What if no one had to make choices?
I’m not asking if no one was allowed to make choices. What if choice wasn’t something to dread or a burden to worry about because no one had to make choices? As someone who struggles with choosing things like where to eat lunch or my entire college major, this would be great. For me, choice is stressful because it involves opportunity cost. Choosing something means giving up on something else. And wrong choices? Those ...
“The Hong Konger” Documents Hong Kong’s Struggle To Keep Its Liberty
By Sophia Monastra
If I wrote this review in Hong Kong, I could be arrested.
During the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) instituted a new national security law over Hong Kong. Anything that the CCP defines as “a national threat” could be deemed dangerous, and citizens of any country could be charged. This definition is left intentionally vague, and the law was reportedly passed before the contents were released. Pictures of Hong Kongers protesting this new ...

“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.
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.
Rex’s alter ego, Derek Burk, developed the idea of Rex after a failed Captain America and original superhero in a blue morph suit failed.
Burk has a serious condition in which he morphs between ...
