Bringing Out the Dead

Adam Khelah, Staff Writer

     “Bringing out the Dead” is one of Martin Scorsese’s most underrated films of all time. No one talks about it. The movie doesn’t even break a 7 on IMBD and only sits at a 71% on Rotten Tomatoes. That isn’t bad, but it’s low for Scorsese.        A lot of people don’t even know t...

One day I was down in St. Louis Park trying to find a way to kill time while waiting for my ACT tutor, I found a cute little place called Penny’s Coffee on West 44th Street. Penny’s Coffee has three different locations: West 44th, downtown Minneapolis and Wayzata. Getting to the shop is slightly difficult si...

Uncut Gems

Uncut Gems

January 9, 2020

“Uncut Gems” is one of the best movies I’ve seen all year. Yes, it stars Adam Sandler, but don’t let that turn you away. He’s been in a lot of junk in recent years, but this is one of the best movies Sandler has starred in for awhile. Here he plays Howard Ratner, a jeweler crippled with gamblin...

Frozen 2: Can we just “Let it Go?”

Frozen 2: Can we just “Let it Go?”

Maneeya Leung, Staff Writer

January 9, 2020

I did not care about the plot of Frozen 2 nor did I understand it. Maybe my two experiences are related, but as a semi-intelligent viewer aged older than ten, I generally go into Disney movies expecting to know what’s going on. It was going to take much more than just magic to make a cohesive plot,...

Review of SIX the Musical

Sydney Lewis, Print Editor-in-Chief

December 2, 2019

I have seen the Musical “SIX” three times, twice at the Shakespeare Theatre in Chicago and on opening night at the Ordway Center for the Performing Arts in St. Paul.  Going into the St. Paul show, my expectations were high. The shows in Chicago blew me away and left my mom and me listening to ...

Cold Weather Movie Review 

Adam Khelah, Staff Writer

November 15, 2019

“Cold Weather” is a movie that really stands out from the mainstream movies we watch on the big screen. The writer and director of the 2010 film, Aaron Katz, has had a major influence on the genre mumblecore. A genre, most popular with independent filmmakers, in which dialogue and character interact...

The Bourne Supremacy Review

The Bourne Supremacy Review

October 30, 2019

With the release of “Treadstone,” a Jason Bourne spin off TV show, right around the corner I thought it would be a great time to talk about one of my favorite movies of all time: “The Bourne Supremacy.” I believe “The Bourne Supremacy,” and the Bourne Trilogy in general, rank up there as so...

My emo heart is revived: “amo” review

My emo heart is revived:

Karen Larionova, editor

February 12, 2019

Four years after their last emo album, British band Bring Me The Horizon recently came out with a new album titled “amo.” The hard rock heartthrob band was known for its depressing songs like “Drown” and “Can You Feel My Heart,” but the new album is completely separate from their old style. I...

“Escape at Dannemora” Review

Carter Aakhus, staff writer

February 5, 2019

When I first heard about “Escape at Dannemora,” a Ben Stiller-directed TV miniseries, I was mildly intrigued at best. I had no idea how invested and enthralled I would be throughout its seven hour runtime. The miniseries tells the incredible true story of an upstate-New York prison escape of two...
