The Fault in Our Stars was a traditional heart-wrenching tragic love story that left the audience tearful for the love that they had clung to throughout the plot development and then lost themselves. It is not to say that I did not cry myself nor thoroughly enjoy the film, because I did. However, since I had read the book prior to seeing the movie, I can say th...

Begin Again, written and directed by John Carney, is a hard film to describe in only a sentence. To label it a comedy would take away from its depth, but to call it heartwarming leaves you with the impression of overemotional acting. Begin Again is a sad yet sweet, heartbreaking yet inspiring, soul ...

Anyone who knows me knows my love for the Transformers movies. I am the unapologetic defender of the Michael Bay Transformers films. Of course I acknowledge the flaws, but as a member of the targeted audience, I was able to happily walk out of the theatre every single time. With that being said, I ab...

For the first time since X2 (X-Men United), Brian Singer returns to the franchise and promises to give us one for the books with X-Men: Days of Future Past. Does this film hold up to the hype?

With Pacific Rim proving to be an overall success, it’s no wonder why Warner Bros. would invest in yet another giant monster movie. This time, they decided to invest in the cinematic icon of Godzilla. Immediately, this film had skeptics, considering the last (and only other) American-made Godzilla film was one of the worst films of the past 20 years....

When Sam Harris was growing up, he started out like any music-obsessed kid, sneaking into college shows in his hometown of Ithaca. “You had to know somebody there to get into them, but yeah I remember seeing some of them. Usually we’d get the big bands coming through Cornell…I saw Arcade Fi...

Anyone who has been reading this section since the fall already knows that Spider-Man has a very special place in my heart. Without a doubt the best part of the film is its visuals. Spider-Man looks incredible. The suit is as legit as it will ever will be, and finally someone got the eyes right! ...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 leaves a lot of loose ends open for future films. We already have confirmation by Sony that we will be seeing a third and fourth Amazing Spider-Man; a Venom movie and Sinister 6 movie. I think it’s good that we take some time to talk about what the future holds for the Spid...

We Are The In Crowd unites for a reunion tour after a two-year hiatus. When I heard that Poughkeepsie natives We Are The In Crowd were going out on a reunion tour, my first reaction was confusion; very confused. While the band never broke up, this tour signified them coming back together for their new album release, Weird Kids, after two years without writing new material. Bringing...

As I recently turned 21, I got a little taste of what being “old” might just feel like. I used my birthday money to pay off my credit card, had a nice quiet evening with my family and boyfriend at a comedy club, and got my haircut. Okay, I’m not your typical party girl either, so this was actually...

Blake Morgan respects the music “Sometimes what looks a lot like ‘inspiration,’ later is really just ‘desperation’ or ‘necessity’ at the time,” said Blake Morgan when I inquired about his inspiration to start up his own global music company. Morgan is a musician, singer-songwriter, pr...
