  • They Both Die at the End – General Review
    Summer break is the perfect opportunity to get back into reading. Adam Silvera’s (2017) novel, They Both Die at the End, can serve as a stepping stone into the realm of reading. The pace is fast, action-packed, and develops loveable characters. Also, Silvera switches point of view each chapter where narration mainly focuses on the protagonists, […]
  • My Favorite Book – Freshwater
    If there’s one book that I believe everyone should read once in their life, it’s my favorite book – Freshwater by Akwaeke Emezi. From my course, Queer Literature under Dr. Bill Albertini, I discovered Emezi’s Freshwater (2018). Once more, my course, Creative Writing Thesis Workshop under Professor Amorak Huey, was instructed to present our favorite […]

The five most highly anticipated movies of 2009

‘Watchmen’ Release Date: March 6 Giving an early jump-start to the anticipated blockbusters of the film season, the live-action take on the classic graphic novel, ‘Watchmen,’ already has fanboys in a tizzy. With the visually creative director Zack Snyder having already whetted their appetites with his work on ‘300,’ there’s little fear of this beloved graphic novel losing its unique credibility. Hopefully this time, there will be a little more emphasis on character rather than body physique. ‘X-MenOrigins: Wolverine’ Release Date: May 1 He has already taken the Oscars by storm, and now, Hugh Jackman is set to reprise his role as the popular mutant known as Wolverine. This time, he finally gets his own film. In this stand-alone’ story, Jackman grapples with the back-story of his iconic character hopefully to further develop a role that made the first two X-Men films so popular. Let’s hope this means there are plenty of opportunities for that famous mutant rage. ‘Star Trek’ Release Date: May 8 As if J.J. Abrams already didn’t have enough creativity to go around as the creator of shows like ‘Lost’ and ‘Fringe,’ his latest directorial attempt is making its way to the big screen with a familiar cast of characters. With the daunting task of updating the beloved ‘Star Trek’ series, Abrams is likely to flex his creative muscles while developing memorable performances and unforgettable action set pieces. He better do it justice, or he’ll have a worldwide clan of Trekkies after him. ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’ Release Date: June 26 It’s hard to consider a film about giant robots anything other than the textbook display of product placement that it was. However, the action sequences of 2007’s ‘Transformers” managed to spark a sequel to this’ blockbuster. The newest entry, ‘Revenge of the Fallen,’ is sure to feature another venture in horrid acting and unsung plotlines, but with director Michael Bay back at the helm, you can bet to see dizzying action sequences that made the first so popular. ‘Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince’ Release Date: July 17 Once believed to be set for release in November of 2008, the sixth Harry Potter adaptation devastated fans when Warner Bros. bumped it to a 2009 release. Now, with the’ release approaching, fans are gearing up for an extravaganza of’ action, suspense and lovable characters. If any consolation can be given to the hungry eyes of Potter fans, ‘Phoenix’ director David Yates has returned for another year at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
