‘Argylle’: purrfectly funny

Ricky Miller, Entertainment Editor | February 23, 2024
For all intents and purposes, “Argylle” is just a fun romp. Director Matthew Vaughn interlaces comedic tidbits with the violence while sending a wink-wink to the viewers. Vaughn also directed the action-adventure comedy “Kingsman: The Secret Service” in 2014.  In this one, we have Bryce Dallas Howard’s Elly Conway, a fiction writer.  Her written words turn out to be more truth than fiction. Conway is overseas promoting her new works, a book and a movie. She befriends Aidan Wilde (Sam Rockwell), who’s...

T-Ducks bludgeon Mountain View 118-80

Matilda Magere, Staff Writer | February 20, 2024
The Richland Campus Thunderducks went against their rivals Mountain View in what started off as a friendly game and turned into a heated playoff that ended with the T-Ducks on top 118-80. The home game was dominated by Richland. The first quarter belonged to Richland. The Mountain View Lions displayed a weak defense and a lack of communication with teammates. In contrast, the Thunderducks defense was headstrong, and the offense was strong as well. Tre’Lin Green had the speed to break...

Xavi Villarreal, Sports Editor | February 20, 2024
Lionel Messi played his second game against FC Dallas on Jan. 22 in preparation for the upcoming MLS season, a game in which FC Dallas came up with the win, scoring in the third minute of the match. As Inter Miami CF prepared for the season with friendly matches, they headed to Saudi Arabia to face Cristiano Ronaldo and Al Nasr in what shaped up to be the last ever matchup between the two greatest soccer players to play the game. The question remains though, who is the greatest of all time? Many...
President Joe Biden and Taylor Swift. Could the Swift Effect be just what it takes to save Bidens floundering candidacy?

The Swift Effect

Aislyn Smith, Editor-in-Chief | February 18, 2024
Singer and songwriter Taylor Swift has been popular for years, both for her music and her journey, attracting fans and business alike. Recently, she has become popular for an entirely different reason, which fans are calling the Swift Effect. Essentially, Swift’s association with brands and people has greatly impacted how they are perceived by the public and, even more importantly, how popular they are. This has resulted in huge monetary and political gains, all simply because she showed support in...

First look: The Apple Vision Pro headset

Juan Garza, Staff Writer | February 17, 2024
Apple’s new mixed-reality headset promises to push the world of consumer tech into the future, but when push comes to shove, is their newfangled gizmo worth the pretty penny? Apple is notorious for creating and implementing “old” technology and praising it as the pinnacle of modern engineering; their most recent example of this is with the advent of USB-C in the new iPhone 15, even though smartphones and computers have been using them for years. Now, they’re finally breaking into the...

‘Mean Girls’: The musical

Malak Elkady, Editor-at-Large | February 16, 2024
In the realm of Hollywood adaptations, the latest cinematic rendition of “Mean Girls” grapples with the challenge of adapting a Broadway musical inspired by a film comedy that was, in turn, based on a parenting book. Guided by writer-producer Tina Fey and producer Lorne Michaels, the movie clings to its 2004 roots, attempting to replicate the charm that made the original a hit. However, the nostalgia only goes so far, as the new musical adaptation struggles to capture the essence that made the first...

Rickys TAKE 5 - Valentines Day Edition

Ricky’s TAKE 5 – Valentine’s Day Edition

Ricky Miller, Entertainment Editor | February 14, 2024
“Say Anything” (1989) This Cameron Crowe-directed romantic-comedy with drama finds John Cusack’s Lloyd Dobler falling for high school valedictorian Diane Court (Ione Skye). I really like the relationship of Diane and her father, played by John Mahoney. A+ “Joe Versus the Volcano” (1990) This dark comedy with romantic undercurrents has a dry sense of humor, especially in the beginning when Joe (Tom Hanks) gets fired from his extremely boring and uneventful job by Mr. Waturi (Dan Hedaya).
