Stephen King’s masterful horror epic “IT” captured both the trauma and beauty of childhood in such a captivating fashion in 2017. The adaptation not only became the highest-grossing horror film of all time but was a mesmerizing and unforgettable game changer.

The first-time feeling compares to no other. It is handled with care. Though it shows in just about every small detail around you, I find myself lost at the vibration hovering, cutting corners and seeping between Grant Park.
The national tour of “Anastasia” stops in Madison for an eight-show run, filling the Overture Center with idyllic sets and songs.
We live in an entertainment era today where virtually every film produced is either a remake, a continuation of an ancient series or recycled story bits put together to make a film lacking any freshness. Leave it to the biggest film-lover in the world and one of the greatest filmmakers of all time to craft a film that not only eloquently reflects on the changing world surrounding pop culture and the entertainment industry, but to create one of the most original, charismatic films of all time.
Few films are as widely recognized and celebrated as the original “Lion King,” which was known for its wonderful combination of stunning animation and creative, heartfelt story that audiences of all ages could marvel at. I’ll always remember being a young child and watching the 1994 Disney classic on VHS, choking up when Mufasa was fatally pushed off a cliff and into a stampede of wildebeests as his son Simba watched in terror.
Returning over two years since the premiere of its first season, HBO’s “Big Little Lies” continued on its own without any source material for season two and delivered a set of episodes that not only felt necessary for the sake of the characters but generated a truly intriguing, worthwhile plot.
After the epic and emotional mega hit which was “Avengers: Endgame,” Marvel Cinematic Universe fans needed the next movie in the 23-film series to be a bit of an emotional pick me up.

Every summer in Scandinavia, Europeans celebrate the summer solstice with an array of festive activities, such as traditional dancing, gourmet cooking, and lots of drinking. Extravagant clothes are worn, music is played, and sometimes pagan rituals are practiced during the longest day of the year, where sunlight is constant and the celebrations are continuous for weeks.
It may have ended over a month ago, but I still have a broken heart over the massively disappointing, horribly paced and written the final season of HBO’s fantasy epic “Game of Thrones.” With an ending that felt not only empty but poorly planned, let’s go over what went wrong and how the final season should have actually played out.
A few of the Daily Cardinal’s Art staff and columnists offer incoming students places to explore the arts scene in Madison.
Godzilla is an international cultural phenomenon that has inspired 35 total films. The gigantic ocean lizard is one of the most iconic creations in global entertainment history. Originally created by Japanese filmmakers in 1954, Hollywood has generated three total Godzilla films, the latest being “Godzilla: King of the Monsters.” It was a visually stunning display of CGI perfection, yet also a disastrous compilation of storytelling.
Widely raved about for its dark humor and story, Bill Hader’s HBO dark comedy series “Barry” wrapped up its second season Sunday night, leaving us with a rather disappointing episode but a promising cliffhanger.
There was never a bigger or greater TV show in history. Originally airing in 2011, HBO’s “Game of Thrones” spanned eight seasons and helped transform the fantasy genre through its human-centered drama, complex characters and a captivating plot. With the series ending Sunday night, most fans, including myself, were extremely disappointed with how it ended.
