Noah Phillips, Staff Writer April 19, 2024

It would be far from a reach to say that the United States has become a politically divisive country in the past couple decades. Frankly, to call it just “divisive” is a major understatement. The...

Anna Ford, Staff Writer February 22, 2023

Daniel Craig in “No Time to Die” (2021).

REVIEW: ‘No Time to Die’ may be divisive, but it is the send-off that Daniel Craig’s humanistic Bond deserves

Boyce Rucker, Intern October 11, 2021
“No Time to Die” is a crucial film in the Bond saga that challenges the series’ formulaic nature and brings a close to the Daniel Craig run. Viewers may be divided on the film’s story decisions and how it diverges from the Bond formula, but these ideas reinvigorate the franchise and deliver emotional weight to the film. The film provides the thrills, twists and intense action that makes Bond an influential character in cinema.
Ben Hardy and Natasha Liu Bordizzo in The Voyeurs (2021).

REVIEW: ‘The Voyeurs’ questions how far we’ll go for a peek

Grace Hall, Contributing Writer September 14, 2021
The most impressive portion of this movie was the writing: the movie unravels itself completely, then twists itself back up into a knot—it all comes full circle. It questions modern reality, and what’s real. What are the costs of seeing into others’ lives? Are we truly okay with others watching us? How far will we really go to watch—and do we even want to see?
Oscar Isaac as William Tell in The Card Counter (2021).

REVIEW: Oscar Isaac shines amidst the darkness and brutality of ‘The Card Counter’

Boyce Rucker, Intern September 12, 2021
Despite its namesake, and the slick style portrayed in its trailer, the film is only about high-stakes poker on surface level. More than anything, it’s the character study of a broken man and a critique on the inhumanity of military interrogation in the Iraq War.
Molly Gordon and Rachel Sennott in Shiva Baby (2020).

REVIEW: The unsettling black comedy of “Shiva Baby”

Stephen Lambros, Contributing Writer April 9, 2021

The contained thriller isn’t a new idea in the general scope of cinema history. Many films have told the bulk of their stories within the constraint of a single time and location—comedies like “His...
