When Awezec had a chance spend winter break working for a company in India, he jumped at the opportunity. What Awezec didn’t know was that his experience wouldn’t be an ordinary college internship, it would be an example of Connected Learning at its finest. More…

Warm Bodies shows the nicer side of zombies Reply

“Warm Bodies,” starring Nicholas Houltand Teresa Palmer, is a sweet, witty, and cute comedy film about zombies. The movie presents a well-done switch from the typical, horror-fueled zombie movies. Photo courtesy of darkmatt.blogspot.com

With all the vampire love stories starting to die off, the next logical jump would be a zombie love story, right? That is exactly what “Warm Bodies” aims to accomplish. Directed by Jonathan Levine and set in a post-apocalyptic city, zombies roam free while humans dwell behind a fortified section of the city. More…

It’s hard to concoct a perfect psychological thriller film. It can be difficult to draw the line as to where to stop pulling the audience through a maze as they question themselves time and time again and when to keep going and to add more twists and turns to that maze. Too much confusion can lose the viewer and too little can bore them. While “Side Effects” is not a perfect psychological thriller, it comes close. Directed by Steven Soderbergh and with a powerful cast including Rooney Mara, Jude Law, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Channing Tatum, “Side Effects” effectively pulls the audience in and keeps them guessing themselves, as a good psychological thriller should, through the film’s length.

Each student is jumping up and down to the introduction music with their arms on the shoulders beside them.

As the players get ready for the game to begin, the students are chanting in unison. The game begins, and the fans are go- ing wild. Their hands go up during every free throw, in hopes the away team will miss. It’s not necessarily going to work; it’s more of a superstition. Every game it’s the same: first ones there, last ones out. They come out in big numbers to silence the away team’s supporters. The “super- fans” support the college’s teams no matter how good or bad they perform. Does this seem like the fans of Lasell College? I can easily say absolutely not. More…
