Tom Hardy in “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” (2021).

REVIEW: “Venom: Let There Be Carnage’ embraces the comedy of its predecessor and delivers a fast-paced adventure

Boyce Rucker, Intern October 5, 2021
Sony’s “Venom” franchise stands out as an outlier for not being officially included in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Despite its initial disconnection from Spider-Man, “Venom” is noted for its action, humor and Tom Hardy’s performance. Directed by character actor Andy Serkis, “Venom: Let There Be Carnage” indulges in the comedic tone of its predecessor and introduces new characters and elements to the franchise, but does it so hastily to the point where the film feels more like a short interlude rather than a major installment.

Ben Schnetzer plays York Brown in Y: The Last Man (2021).

REVIEW: Despite a generic intro, there is a brilliant story somewhere in ‘Y: The Last Man’

Boyce Rucker, Intern September 22, 2021
FX’s adaptation of the “Y: The Last Man” comic series is one of the network’s most anticipated shows in recent years. The series was published by DC Comics’ mature Vertigo imprint and ran for 60 issues from 2002 to 2008. The comic’s critical acclaim may signal the show’s potential for strong impactful storytelling. While the first part of the three-episode premiere focuses too much on exposition to grip viewers right away, it still has the potential to highlight strong acting performances.

How clubs are adapting to the return to virtual

Boyce Rucker, Intern September 16, 2021
With North Carolina’s widespread distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, the chances of a return to normalcy at UNCW seemed fairly optimistic. However, such progress came to a halt when UNCW notified students of a COVID-19 cluster in Sandpiper Residence Hall on August 23, 2021. The following day, it was announced that the university would suspend all in-person events and activities that are not related to coursework. On Monday, UNCW extended current guidelines and restrictions until Oct. 15.
