Movie Review: Captain America: The Winter Solider

I wasn’t sure what to expect when I saw Captain America: The Winter Soldier this past Friday. I hadn’t seen the first movie, so my only knowledge of Captain America was from The Avengers and my Tumblr dashboard. Ultimately, I liked the movie. It was well-developed (though, I probably don’t know enough about the story lines to...

Book Review: Waiting by Ha Jin

Over Thanksgiving break, I felt the need to read. Not only did I feel nostalgic about my childhood – when I used to read a lot – but I also wanted to mentally prepare myself for college interviews. Books are a great way to escape and relocate your thoughts. They’re good to talk about...

Beasts of the Southern Wild is Sheer Poetry

When I first watched this film, I knew a few plot points from the trailers: a diseased father, a motif of ox-like antagonists, and a resilient young girl who rarely wore pants. I knew that Beasts of the Southern Wild would turn me into a free-flowing waterfall of tears and a dripping nose. However,...

Skyfall: brutal sophistication

The latest installment of the James Bond franchise, Skyfall features gratuitous explosions and plenty of femme fatales. However, the 23rd Bond film has an added dimension. Beyond gunfights, beautiful women, and vodka martinis – shaken, not stirred – this film carries with it some measure of social commentary. It’s still an action-packed adventure, but...

Mumford & Sons Review

Alright, it’s official, I am obsessed with Mumford & Sons.  And, in my humble opinion, you should be too.  What makes this band so amazing is that they are totally unique to anything I’ve ever heard before.  Oh, and they’re British, which is always a bonus. It’s hard to describe the genre of Mumford...
