A still from Marvels Eternals (2021).

REVIEW: An exploration of humanity through the eyes of ‘Eternals’ shakes up the Marvel formula

Boyce Rucker, Intern November 6, 2021
“Eternals” is not the best film to come out of the MCU, but it’s an invitation to an ever-expanding future for the cinematic universe. Director Chloé Zhao presents a reflective film that elevates the scope of the MCU. Despite its shortcomings, Zhao’s creative freedom demonstrates the range of themes and new ideas that Marvel Studios may allow directors to produce in the future.

Sophia Pruett on her journey on YouTube and in life

Abigail Celoria, Contributing Writer November 4, 2021
In recent years, YouTube has become an unexpected expert source for students just beginning the college search. Many universities found unofficial spokespeople in YouTube lifestyle vloggers. The popularity of the genre has allowed ordinary college students to take over the online space, posting day-in-my-life vlogs, homework tips and tricks, outfit try-ons and more. For high schoolers looking forward to this new phase of life, these YouTubers provide an inside look into the real college experience. UNCW has its own unofficial representative in Sophia Pruett, a senior who has been documenting her college career since its beginning.

Contestants compete on Booed Up.

UNCW alumnae-found media company develop Wilmington dating show

Boyce Rucker, Intern October 31, 2021
“What It Is Media” shows potential in being a great company for developing social experiment content. “Booed Up” can hopefully help viewers to see Wilmington in a new and exciting light, akin to what locales they might see in “The Bachelor.” Women-founded and Wilmington-based, ‘What It Is Media’ is a compelling creation from three UNCW alumnae.

REVIEW: Edgar Wright crafts a hypnotic and visually alluring horror film in ‘Last Night in Soho’

Boyce Rucker, Intern October 31, 2021
“Last Night in Soho” is an atmospheric horror film that allows Wright to utilize his signature style outside of his established comedy genre. The film presents themes of toxic masculinity in a horrific way that will force viewers to greatly contemplate the continuance of such masculinity in the present day. With such a diverse assortment of unique films, one can only guess what Wright will tackle next.

Rock band ‘Ridgewood’ on being created during the pandemic and musical inspiration

Kiley Woods, Staff Writer October 27, 2021
Ridgewood started in the midst of a long-term global crisis: a pandemic, the ongoing fight for human rights and general uneasiness. Like many artists during this time of darkness and undesired silence they were driven together by a common goal, to put creativity and art in front of feelings of fear and uncertainty.

Timothée Chalamet in “Dune: Part One” (2021).

REVIEW: ‘Dune’ is an impressive introduction in the context of a larger franchise

Abigail Celoria, Contributing Writer October 23, 2021
Overall, this version of “Dune” is an excellent introduction to the franchise. It sets up what is to come in a digestible format for general audiences. As someone who has not read the book, I worried going into the film that I would be unable to understand it, but Villeneuve artfully maneuvers through the subject matter. Taking the time to establish the worldbuilding allows this film less confusion and greater appreciation that runs parallel to its original format.
Debby Ryan and Lucy Fry in “Night Teeth” (2021).

REVIEW: ‘Night Teeth’ is a modern vampire mess

Grace Hall, Contributing Writer October 21, 2021
“Night Teeth” may not be on par with movies of the century, or even of the year, but it is still of value: all that is needed to lure audiences in is a mention of a good time, some exciting fight scenes and romantic tension. The movie seems to cater itself towards those with the simple goal of being viewers and for this it serves its purpose.
