‘Scream 6’ is a bloody good time
By Samuel M Acosta
This review contains some spoilers for “Scream 6”
Even though I became a fan of this franchise a bit late, I was excited when they announced that “Scream 6” would be released so soon after the previous installment. With the added element of New York City, this one seemed to have a much larger scale. I saw it the day it came out and absolutely loved it. It continues the meta-commentary that the previous film thrived on, but implemented it much more naturally ...
‘Creed 3’ brings a darker tone to its best installment yet
By Samuel M Acosta
I hadn’t seen any of the Creed movies when I first saw the trailer for “Creed 3.” I was never a huge fan of sports movies and I never had a great deal of interest in boxing. Yet the story seemed unlike what other sports movies seemed to offer and the fact that this film was Michael B. Jordan’s directorial debut was enough to pull me in. I binged the first two movies in a day and then immediately went to the theater to see the newest installment, and I loved every ...
Why I’m not walking: a senior perspective on graduation
By Chris Karenbauer
Graduation is the moment seniors look forward to the most because it’s the next step into the adult world. It is also one of the most uniform, rehearsed events of our college career. Every commencement is the same. Someone speaks for 30 minutes. Every graduate, no matter how many of them there are, gets recognized. More speaking. A prayer. It goes on.
And this is why I, and many other seniors at Cedarville University, decided not to walk for graduation.
At best, ...

Chapter eighteen of ‘The Mandalorian’ continues to explore a new father-son dynamic
By Ellie Estrema
For Mandalorian fans, there’s a lot to love about their favorite show, but one of the best parts is watching a father-son relationship develop between Grogu and the Mandalorian, Din Djarin. In a not-so-subtle nod to Westerns’ typical mentors and sidekicks, this is one of the most popular father-son-type duos to play out on screen in the Star Wars universe. However, the new permanence of the relationship since Grogu chose the Mandalorian as his family during “the Book ...
‘The Last of Us’ episode seven sticks true to the source but drags a little too long
By Ben Konuch
“We can just be all poetic and lose our minds together.”
Episode seven of “The Last of Us” starts with a desperate, panicking Ellie trying to keep a dying Joel from slipping away. After his injury in the last minutes of episode six, he’s losing too much blood, and while Ellie tries to find some way to stabilize him, he tries to tell her to leave him and go find Tommy. He doesn’t think he’s going to make it, and he doesn’t want Ellie to die alone in the cold ...
