Student critic: ‘Ant-Man and The Wasp’ does just enough

A palate-cleanser. That’s the best way to describe the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s “Ant-Man and The Wasp.” After the intense mayhem that accompanied “Avengers: Infinity War,” Marvel had to bring its fans back to the ways of a standalone hero movie. With that being said, the ...

Arthaus Projects’ juried exhibition ‘Techne’ opens this week

‘North 40’ brings humor and a deep story

How am I not continually surprised by the deviations I take when it comes to the work that I read? Not only for this column, but for my day-to-day reading, I be-bop through a lot of genres not to mention not-so-recent stuff. I was lucky enough to find a copy of North 40 (with writing duties by ...

Were it not for the deadly-serious subject matter, it would be fair to say that “Beirut” is one splendidly entertaining movie. These kinds of internecine political thrillers often move too fast (especially when set in the murky Middle East), so half the time I can’t follow what’s ...
