Film critics' opinions should be met with skepticism

I consider myself far more of a film lover than a film critic.

Coined as one of the biggest pop stars of our generation, Gaga is back with a lyrical vengeance and few customized metal shorts to match.


Snake on the Lake was a labor of love

“I am not going to get in,” was my first thought as I veered around the corner to see The Frequency and a line of eager attendees extending halfway down the next block for Snake On The Lake.

With its jarring balance of spook and charm, "Stranger things" was the hottest summer Netflix binge. 

'Stranger Things' relevantly harnesses '80s sci-fi aesthetics

Summer is at an end, school has just begun and Madison students are finally beginning to wake from what I call the “Summer Netflix Coma.” This common, transmissible condition begins when students are finished with finals and face the sudden urge to drop everything, slip into a Snuggie and binge watch their favorite show that has been absent from their lives since the first round of exams hit.
