Album Review: ‘Anomaly’
Christian rapper Lecrae released his new album, "Anomaly," on Sept. 11. The album is named "Anomaly" because of his unique testimony.

Elements included throughout the album are a heavy base, smooth lyrical delivery and a certain cleanness and polish to the production, which differs from the ...

Movie Review: ‘The Maze Runner’
When Thomas wakes in a supply-filled box, hurtling up an elevator-like shaft, he finds his memory is a blank slate. He knows nothing — not how or why he got there, or even where here is. He can’t even remember his name.
The box opens upon reaching the top of the shaft and Thomas (Dylan O’Brien) is introduced to his new home called the Glade, a camp of sorts, inhabited by a group of teenage boys.
Thomas soon learns that all of the boys arrive at the Glade in the same way, once a ...

“The Lego Movie”
It seems like “The Lego Movie” was swept aside in light of much bigger and supposedly more important movies surrounding its release. If you missed this gem, go see it, even if you never liked Legos.

It is nearly impossible to finish ...
