The Legend of Family

       Tristan Ludlow lunged in front of his stroke-stricken father, Colonel William Ludlow, unable to fathom another loss after his wife and younger brother. His ragged, gurgled bawl clogged his throat of his stoic demeanor. A piercing shot cracked through the sky and Tristan’s arched arms remained frozen in the air. His face

Netflix Review: You (2018)

     A combination of endless Facebook review posts and Netflix’s percent match caused me to succumb to watching what the majority of social media has been on the rage about this past month: You. No not you, reader, but “You,” as in the 10-episode season released first on Lifetime back in September and on

This or That, But None Of Either As A Matter of Fact

You post happy, inspirational posts. They assume you’re always happy– when you’re trying to be strong. You post a picture of yourself smiling. They think you’re showing your happiness off–when you were just in a slump two minutes ago and trying to be confidently positive.You post a pic with a friend. They assume you’re surrounded

Dana’s Film Review: Yellow Fever (2017)

Yellow Fever officially marks the first  movie I’ve seen at my first ever film festival I’ve attended (Sonoma Film International Film Festival). Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know what you’re gonna say. ‘Well how can you be a film critic then if you’ve never been to a film festival?’ *Uses Italian finger gesture* One: I can—although

Retro Review: Equilibrium (2002)

I had heard so many mixed reviews about Equilibrium. Some said it was a classic hit, others said it was a Matrix-wannabe.

Film Review: Don’t Breathe (2016)

  Far too often do we roll our eyes whenever we hear a new horror/thriller has come out. After all, the majority of today’s horror genre is stuffed with clichés and cheap jump-scares. How can they even compete with classic films that have set our standards high, such as The Shining or The Exorcist? And

Retro Review: Laurel Canyon (2002)

  Upon initially hearing the title of the film, I couldn’t help but feel an odd sense of familiarity. And then I realized, Laurel Canyon was the street name I’d always pass up on the way to Ohlone College. Both film and street name lead to destinations revolving around ideas and change. One would think

Diverging From The Path Of Life

I look around me, and I see everyone walking a similar path of life. Education -> Marriage -> Children -> Death The problem isn’t that it’s a wrong path; it’s a correct one. The problem is that it’s too straight of a journey; there aren’t really any twists and turns. Wait–let me clarify before you
