‘Lady and the Tramp’ restores faith in live-action remakes

‘Lady and the Tramp’ restores faith in live-action remakes

December 4, 2019

Given Disney’s live-action remake kick, I did not have high hopes for its remake of “Lady and the Tramp.” Especially given what I witnessed befall “The Lion King,” another beloved anthropomorphized Disney musical movie. More to feed into my skepticism is that “Lady and the Tramp” was not...

Has the Apple become rotten? Making the switch to Spotify

Has the Apple become rotten? Making the switch to Spotify

December 4, 2019

Recently I made a major life change. I switched my listening experience from Apple Music to Spotify Premium. I had an Apple Music account for a couple of years, so why did I stay for so long? I stayed mainly because I had all of my music on there. If you couldn’t already guess, since I do write the...

‘21 Bridges’ sheds new light on being a cop

‘21 Bridges’ sheds new light on being a cop

December 4, 2019

Sometimes, a movie trailer comes along that takes on a life of its own and becomes its own self-contained piece of fiction to be enjoyed by everyone who sees it. Recently, Chadwick Boseman’s latest film, “21 Bridges,” did just that. With a gripping pace, a powerful backing music track and a couple...

Return to ‘Zombieland’ before it leaves theaters

Return to ‘Zombieland’ before it leaves theaters

November 20, 2019

I feel like I have to get something off my chest before I talk about this movie. I’ve only just watched the original “Zombieland” for the first time this month. I know, here I am pontificating about how much I like movies and am a movie buff, and I waited this long to watch something so highly...

‘Sisters Wyrd’ to take the stage for audience feedback

November 20, 2019

Schuster Theatre’s latest production will be a reimagined version of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth.” Like its source material, “Sisters Wyrd” will also explore themes of power, politics and fate, but with several modern and provocative twists. The original “Macbeth” follows the eponymous character’s...

Rage against the Big Machine: Taylor Swift’s struggles

Rage against the Big Machine: Taylor Swift’s struggles

November 20, 2019

You may remember in late August when Taylor Swift released her most recent album “Lover,” and she has become a hot topic in the news again. As most people know, Swift has been making music for a very long time. She became a country star at just 17 in 2006. Unfortunately for her, most of her music...

‘Last Christmas’ defies normal rom-com cliches, impresses

‘Last Christmas’ defies normal rom-com cliches, impresses

November 20, 2019

Practically kismet timing, as the snow began to fall in Erie earlier this month, “Last Christmas” was released. One of my friends refused to see the movie because it was advertised before Halloween and it came out before Thanksgiving. Halloween is my favorite holiday, but this movie has a place...

All an Act Theatre produces humorous Biblical retelling

All an Act Theatre produces humorous Biblical retelling

November 13, 2019

If you’re familiar with the Biblical story of Job, “humorous” is likely not the first adjective that comes to mind. “Tragic,” “depressing” or “nihilistic” probably fit the bill a little better. In the original story, Job is an obedient servant to God and devout to a fault. He’s also...

Luke Combs leaves listeners with mixed feelings

November 13, 2019

I’m coming out of my comfort zone with this one, meaning I will be listening to a country album. I will be talking about Luke Combs and his new album, “What You See Is What You Get.” Now, I want to clear something up. I don’t hate country music, but I do not like “pop-country.” An example...

Today’s musicians and the ‘sophomore slump’

Today’s musicians and the ‘sophomore slump’

November 6, 2019

Every musician has the pressure to perform better than the last time. Although, sometimes they end up falling into a sophomore slump. What is a sophomore slump? It is when a second attempt fails to live up to the first. For musicians, an example of this could be their second album/project not doing...
