Album Review: Olivia Rodrigo, SOUR

Jacqueline Chin May 25, 2021

Olivia Rodrigo's new album “SOUR” is gorgeously derivative and stands on its own feet, removed from the context and controversy of its first single “drivers license.” Rodrigo’s first song...

Album Review: Kelsy Karter, Missing Person

Kelsy Karter’s new album Missing Person is a 36 minute, 42 second glam-rock romp through delightfully electric-guitar-filled soundscapes. Karter, who rose to fame by getting global sensation Harry Styles’...

The Dead Center doesn’t break any new ground, but it’s more effective than most horror films

The Dead Center doesn’t break any new ground, but it’s more effective than most horror films

Chirag Mangnaik, Reporter November 20, 2019

The Dead Center is about a man who comes back to life after dying. If I had a quarter for every film that had a similar premise, I’d have a fortune (or a couple hundred dollars). In spite of the lack...

Spider-Man: Far From Home is a highly entertaining blend of teen comedy and superhero movie

The Art of Self-Defense is a brilliantly acted, but flawed film

Chirag Mangnaik, Reporter November 8, 2019

4/5   There aren’t any bad performances in The Art of Self-Defense. Jesse Eisenberg does a fantastic job as usual, and Alessandro Nivola and Imogen Poots do a phenomenal job of rendering their...

Compliance is a Problematic Misstep

Compliance is a Problematic Misstep

Chirag Mangnaik June 7, 2019

3/5 Compliance hints at greatness, but is never able to fully manifest itself. This movie could’ve been a solid film that gave deep insight into human behavior. Unfortunately, Compliance never achieves...

Booksmart is a Hilariously Fresh Teen Comedy

Booksmart is a Hilariously Fresh Teen Comedy

Chirag Mangnaik May 30, 2019

5/5   The teen movie genre is often the genre with the least innovation. Characters are often dull and repetitive, and, the movies can feel like too-safe cash-grabs. Perhaps, then, Booksmart’s...
