Book of Life proves an energetic, fun film

October 21, 2014

By Flynn Geraghty Features Editor Hispanics are not well portrayed when it comes to animation. That’s why I was excited when I heard Book of Life was coming out.

The Judge covers too many genres, still delivers enjoyable movie

October 12, 2014

By Garrett Strother Entertainment Editor  Every so often, (and unfortunately increasingly frequently) there comes a movie that has a kind of identity crisis; it cannot really decide what it wants to be.
