MOVIE REVIEW: “Gone Girl” is why books are made into movies

I have many directors I like, there are directors I love and then there are my “do no wrong” directors: filmmakers with such a hold on my love for film that they could make a horrendous piece of trash, and I still would probably love it. I have four “do no wrong” directors: Quentin Tarantino, […]

The sparks that began Cairo Fire

It all came together quickly for the guys of Cairo Fire, the four-piece Charlotte pop/rock band. About a year and a half ago, Will White moved down to Charlotte with a desire to gather up some musicians to perform with. So he posted a shot-in-the-dark invite on Craigslist to see what could happen. He received a […]

In Case You Missed It: UNC Charlotte Welcomes Valerie Zimany and Daniel Bare

Photos by Elizabeth Medlin. People encounter art in their lives every single day; everybody sees and thinks about art differently. Many can agree that art is so much better in person, and I think all who see Valerie Zimany and Daniel Bare’s exhibit currently being displayed at the Rowe Arts Gallery can agree with that. […]

FILM ANALYSIS: The Testament of Dr. Mabuse

  It’s hard to talk about this film without some knowledge of the director, Fritz Lang. A Jew, Lang was one of the preeminent directors in Germany during the years between the World Wars. Obviously, being Jewish in Germany in the 1930s (and really even before then) was not a good thing, what with the […]

Sunlight slowly starts to illuminate campus early Monday morning. Dew sprinkles the planters outside of the Student Union, and the light chill in the air fogs the big windows above the loading dock.

Travel Tuesday: fall break

A very prominent change in nature can be noticed during Fall Break. The leaves change color, the weather turns colder and sunbeams become luxuries. Like a few of the trees that I saw over my Fall Break, I have only a few leaves on my bare skeleton. But instead of losing more, I make more. […]

49ers going for gold

In 2011, the Charlotte 49ers men’s soccer team found themselves 90 minutes away from a national championship. The 49ers came up short in a heartbreaking 1-0 defeat at the hands of the North Carolina Tar Heels. Fast forward to 2014 and the team looks entirely different but oddly similar at the same time.

MOVIE REVIEW: “The Equalizer” has a unique beauty about it

I don’t really like Antoine Fuqua’s movies, save for “Training Day”, they’re all pretty much the same to me. “Shooter”, “Brooklyn’s Finest”, “Olympus Has Fallen”, all provide the audience with the same vapid action pieces with graphic violence and minimal character development. When the trailer for “The Equalizer” came out, I saw it as another […]
