“One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”

Eddie Sheehy, Lifestyles Columnist

September 17, 2013

With the news of Jack Nicholson's retirement swirling around in the media, I couldn't help but be re-inspired to write this post. Originally, I had planned for “One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest” to be my first review for Out of My Element, but logistically, it made more sense to save it for later. It...

For my piece in this classic movie series, I bring to you what I consider to be the most underrated movie of 2013, “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.” I absolutely love this movie, but admittedly, this is probably one of the only positive reviews you will see for it anywhere right now. The fact that this ...

Out of My Element  Let’s begin with the obvious. I have never written a blog in my life. In fact, the very idea of having a blog seems laughable to me. I’m not much of a writer admittedly, and not much of a reader either (just thinking about editing these very words I am writing makes me cringe)...

“21 & Over:” Cheeky jokes, uninspired plot

“21 & Over:” Cheeky jokes, uninspired plot

Leah Moose, Lifestyles Editor

March 1, 2013

I thought I knew what to expect walking into the film, “21 & Over.” I expected some vulgar jokes that are surprisingly hard to resist combined with a humdrum plot that mirrored the creators’ hit, “The Hangover.” Within a few scenes, it was clear those weren’t the movie’s only shortcomings. The...

After viewing the movie musical Les Miserables only a few hours ago, I realized there are several details that potential viewers should know before going into the theater.

Movie Review: 21 Jump Street

Andrea Zanaglio, Assistant News Editor

March 15, 2012

Yes, 21 Jump Street is the latest 80s television show to be reinvented as a film for the big screen. Yes, like many others, I am getting very tired of all these remakes and reboots. However, I have to admit that this film is laugh out loud funny and is actually worth the time and money to see in theat...
