SPOILER ALERT: If you have not seen season eight, episode two of The Walking Dead yet, you may want to watch it before you read this.
The war continues! Last Sunday’s episode of The Walking Dead, “The Damned” took a much different turn than episode one, which was more reflective and character focused. For (most) fans that are looking for this war to escalate a little and see some combat, episode two definitely should not have disappointed. Chock-full of battle scenes, hostage situations, and a brutal fistfight between Rick and an interesting Savior, this was a very militaristic episode, which it definitely needed to be after that slower paced first episode.

SPOILER ALERT: If you have not seen season eight, episode one of The Walking Dead yet, you may want to watch it before you read this.
The Walking Dead has returned to the television screen after almost seven excruciating months of anticipation. Like any other fan of the hit zombie epic, I was pretty excited to watch the first episode of season eight, which aired last Sunday night. This also happened to be the 100th episode of the show.
The first Conversation Event for the month of October, sponsored by the Christian Conversation Club, included loads of interesting discussion about students’ favorite movies and why they appreciate them. One topic was whether the students attending prefered movies with a lot of action or movies that are more dramatic, with a heavy focus on character, or those with a little of each. In addition, there were some great conversations about how the films discussed (and films in general) make an impact on our lives. Continue reading “Highlights from the Event: Conversation On Movies”

That’s right. It really happened. Sony pictures made an animated movie about emojis. If you’ve been scrounging the internet in search of saucy reviews, odds are you know by now that The Emoji Movie is bad. Really bad. In fact, so bad that it’s one of the lowest rated movies on sites like IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes, despite its 50-some million-dollar budget. I mean, for crying out loud, it’s a movie about emojis. How good can it be? Despite the negative criticism, the movie actually made a decent profit. It’s hard to believe that a movie about emojis could manage to round up hundreds of millions of dollars, but it did. After watching the movie myself, I can honestly say that it deserves the ⅕ stars, 2/10 stars, and measly 5% and 12%’s it’s been getting from critics around the world. Let’s take a minute to analyze the awfulness that is The Emoji Movie, as well as its undeniable success.Continue reading “The Emoji Movie: Sell-Out of The Century”
Have you ever gone to a live show of a band that you really like, but left disappointed, thinking the live performance just didn’t sound as good as the music recorded in the studio? Or maybe the concert was all right, but somehow it felt impersonal, like you were expecting the musicians to interact more with the audience?
When you attend a Cowboy Mouth concert, you will never experience these letdowns. Cowboy Mouth truly thrives in a live setting. This band works hard to make sure that every fan, at every concert, is having an amazing time. On August 26, I attended their concert at Navy Pier in Chicago, Illinois. This concert was a whole lot of fun and an all-around amazing experience.Continue reading “The Name of the Band is Cowboy Mouth”
