A Personal Take on Halloween
By Chris Karenbauer
Halloween is the one time of year when kids and adults dress up in fun costumes and wander their neighborhoods asking strangers for free candy, and society will not judge them too harshly for it.
Halloween is mostly harmless, except for the small percent of teenagers who find it funny to toilet paper their neighbor’s house. But despite its appearance to target children in marketing, Halloween has dark origins that explore macabre and witchcraft.
Despite its dark ...

Moonlight Madness: Yellow Jacket Basketball is Back!
By: Maggie Fipps
“It comes but once a year on a foggy night in October,” the announcer rumbled in an ominous tone. The gymnasium quivered in excitement as Cedarville students readied themselves for the biggest show in town. Well, let’s be honest, the only show in town on a Friday night in the middle of October. Students holding candy apples and dressed in Halloween costumes from the Alt Night earlier gathered for the beginning of the Cedarville men's and women's basketball season.&n...
Superheroes of the Ville
by Noah Tang
This fall semester, an interesting new trend arose. Students are dressing up as popular superheroes, attending classes or offering their services to the student body at large. The Spider-Force of Cedarville, as they call themselves, has set up a hotline specifically for fellow students to ask for help. They started by posting a Classified ad and then moved to use a phone number that was posted for all to see. In keeping with Spider-Man’s practices, these ...

‘Rings of Power’ Finale Attempts Ties to Tolkien’s Lore
By Janie Walenda
This review contains spoilers for the whole of “Rings of Power” season one
I’m not sure how I feel about the season finale of “Rings of Power.” That’s not a great first sentence for a review, but that has been the overwhelming feeling that has stuck with me. On one hand, the finale delivers its twists with its usual style and a surprising amount of complexity. However, the developments in this episode do nothing to lessen my concerns about how “Rings ...
‘She-Hulk: Attorney at Law’ Finale Falls Flat
By Samuel M Acosta
This past week we finally saw the ending of “She-Hulk: Attorney at Law” and it is definitely something different than we have ever seen before from Marvel. Not only does it lean into the fourth-wall-breaking nature of the character, but it does away with the typical big fight sequence at the end. Yet, I can’t help but feel unsatisfied with the show's ending, especially in light of how amazing the episode before this was. It all just feels rushed and underdev...
‘Werewolf By Night’ is a Fresh and Violent New Chapter of the MCU
By Ben Konuch
“So many death dealers in one room…”
Phase 4 of the MCU has been full of bizarre hits and misses. It’s been a phase of experimenting, with unconventional and unique entries like “WandaVision” and “Eternals” attempting to break the mold of the Marvel formula. For all of its experimenting, Marvel has failed as many times as it succeeded. Some titles like “Moon Knight” and “Loki” have been received favorably, while entries like “Eternals” and ...
‘Andor’ Episodes 4-6 Raise the Bar for Star Wars Television
By Ben Konuch
“Of course I’m afraid! But there’s a difference between fear and losing your nerve. You want out of this? Make a choice. Don’t use me as an excuse.”
“Andor” has quickly shot up the ranks of my favorite pieces of Star Wars storytelling. Fresh off the high note of episode three's action-packed conclusion of the first story arc, “Andor's” next two episodes are again slow-burn world-building that culminate into a visually stunning and narratively satisfying ...
