The Newest on Netflix

April 28, 2020

As national quarantine reaches into a second month, I’ve exhausted my normal methods of entertainment: watching the same five shows on repeat and binging Youtube for hours at a time. It’s times like these that I look for new shows to pass away the time, and I found why everyone was watching “Tiger...

Sonic the Hedgehog: Review

Sonic the Hedgehog: Review

Gabriel Lyden, Staff Writter

April 27, 2020

Sonic the Hedgehog was a meaningless cash-grab, offering cinema’s most uninspired and forgettable offerings to date, or so I’d like to say.  The movie follows Sonic and Tom Wachowski, an honest cop looking to leave the monotony of his small town as they adventure across the United States with chaos ensuing al...

Welcome to La Vista, Hooters

A cheesesteak philly with curly fries and a red rose.

REVIEW BY: Lauren Unverzagt, Staff Writer

February 27, 2020

The last thing anyone would expect in 2020 would be a high school girl reviewing the brand spanking new Hooters in town.  But is anything surprising in 2020? At this point, it doesn’t feel like it. So let’s get into it.   I have eaten at the Hooters in Kansas City and was excited to have one open so close to home. As I was pulling up, the outside glowed and the parking lot was filled. Walking in, I was expectin...
