Retro Review: Paper Mario

Written by Tyler Lamb. Growing up, I, like many other children of my generation, played a lot of video games. Unlike those many children, I didn’t own a Nintendo Entertainment System, but I had a Sega Genesis, and loved it. I didn’t get exposed to the wonderful world of Nintendo until the Nintendo 64 was released. What followed was a point in my life where I played video games the most. Even now, I tend to ...

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Written by Erica Siddle A Midsummer Night’s Dream is by far my favorite Shakespearean comedy.    While I have seen the production in its various forms in several theater classes, I had never seen a live performance.  Needless to say, I was intrigued from the start when the Greenville Factory Theater chose this as their fall production. Upon entering the theater, I was greeted with green, green, and of cours ...

Taken 2 Review

Review by Zach Stanbery A few weeks ago on Thursday night (or Friday morning?) I attended the midnight showing of Taken 2. This comes as no surprise to those who know me. My preferred genre of movies is the one with the most explosions, and I consider myself somewhat knowledgeable when it comes to the movies that go “bang.” In Taken 2, Brian Mills, played by Liam Neeson, and his ex-wife Lenore are kidnapped ...

Having literally no idea what to expect, I, like the 30+ pre-teens that also attended House at the End of the Street, only k ...
