“Resident Evil 2” made a lot of waves back in 1998, but looking back at it now, it’s hard to believe anyone was scared by it. Don’t get me wrong, it still has its charm, and if testimonials are anything to go off of, there were plenty of kids and young adults who were outright traumatized by it in its heyday. But even by the standards of its contemporaries, there’s a lot of shortcomings in the original “Resident Evil 2.”

In this installment of the Grammys series, we’re looking at two more of the eight nominees for the coveted Album of the Year award. In particular, these two are the longest albums of the bunch, with Scorpion by Drake and H.E.R.’s self-titled debut album clocking in just under 90 and 72 minutes, respectively. While both albums have triumphs, their longer run times do more harm than good.
On Thursday, Jan. 31, Madison was on the back end of the worst week of cold weather that many of us have ever seen. Residents were told to stay inside, turn up the heat and not leave unless it was necessary. Surely, no one would be in the mood to celebrate just yet with temperatures well below zero and snow falling steadily, right? Well, Madison’s music and concert scene didn’t seem phased one bit.
For most Midwesterners, the Great Lakes frequently serve as a backdrop for outdoor adventure-- frigid, clear and impossibly vast, this freshwater system is a central source for recreation, commerce and much more. Individuals and businesses across the continent depend on these lakes, and in the past century, this dependency has been reflected in a changing ecology that is taking place on a level that many Americans remain unaware of.
Eventually, I wonder, if rapper Noname will change her stage name to just Name, something that hints at the name she’s made for herself in the last few years of her career.
On Feb. 10, this year’s edition of “music’s biggest night” will feature dozens of the most popular names in the industry congregated in one place: the 61st Annual Grammy Awards. As the Recording Academy attempts to keep up with the changes in society at large, they have asserted some implicit and explicit changes within the past few years.
Biopics are hit or a miss, occasionally being something fresh and new, while most of the time being a regurgitation of film history. Damien Chazelle’s (“Whiplash”, “La La Land”) “First Man” sadly fails to be something new, instead falling in line with other Hollywood true stories about an important historical figure.
The Academy got many of the categories wrong this year, honoring the wrong films for the wrong nominations. Several of this year's best films were completely or almost completely ignored. The Oscars chose to focus on decent or generally pleasing films instead of the more thought-provoking or daring works of art that remained oblivious to mainstream audiences. Here are the biggest snubs:
Netflix starts off its 2019 lineup strong with its new show "Sex Education," an engaging British comedy that presents a thoughtful look at students as they deal with the social pressures of sex in their lives.
The 2019 Academy Award nominations were announced yesterday morning in Los Angeles. A wider range of selections in genres highlights the list of nominees.
In 2017, festival goers from across America were excited at the prospects of a brand-new event to attend which promised to be unlike anything to come before it. A private island in the Bahamas, gorgeous women, world class musical performances, and lots of booze. What more could you want? It seemed too good to be true… and it was.

Filmmaker Barry Jenkins received both critical acclaim and numerous awards including Best Picture at the Academy Awards for his 2016 film “Moonlight," an intimate and poetic exploration of one man’s alienation and struggle in a society he feels drowned in. Jenkins’ next film follows a completely different style, yet a similar theme. Based on the 1974 novel by James Baldwin, “If Beale Street Could Talk” has its heart in the right place the entire time, overall achieving what it sets out to do, yet struggles to execute its mission to its best ability.
“If Beale Street Could Talk” is a strong film that generates emotional appeal, yet doesn’t fully embrace its dramatic potential.
It: Chapter 2
Dick Cheney is seen by many as the most controversial and powerful vice president in American history. With such a shocking legacy, it should come as no surprise that a mainstream Hollywood film depicting his political career doesn’t praise him or present him as an admirable man.
Tekashi 6ix9ine has built his brand on controversy – beef with other rappers, memes and occasionally music. Now, amidst a whirlwind combination of the first three, 6ix9ine has released his major label debut studio album DUMMY BOY as he sits in federal prison, facing racketeering and firearms charges. 6ix9ine clearly has ambitious goals in mind, with guests from Kanye West to Tay Keith, and those two only scratch the surface of the album’s crossover production and numerous big-name guests. His ambition, however, does anything but translate to his music: DUMMY BOY is an unoriginal and elementary exercise in modern hip-hop, showcasing just how amateur 6ix9ine really is when one looks past all of the hype.
Few films captivate the soul as much as 2018’s “Roma” from Academy Award-winning director Alfonso Cuarón. He not only directed this cinematic masterpiece, but he also wrote, produced, edited and served as the cinematographer of the film. Based on his childhood experiences growing up in Roma — a suburb of Mexico City — the filmmaker has done something truly remarkable in that he has crafted a deeply intimate and personal film. It serves as a universal testament to humanity that everyone can relate to in some fashion. Simply put, “Roma” is the best film of 2018.
Arts Editors from the past, present and future sit down to discuss the best that 2018 had to offer.
