School of Screen Time: STEM Subjects

There is an incredible push across the country to increase the appeal among students for STEM – Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. These are subjects that will become the backbone of the next generation of innovators across the world. STEM fields also seem to represent a growing percentage of the job opportunities in America: according to the US Department of Commerce, STEM occupations are growing at twice the rate of other occupations. Yet, while opportunities are growing and this need is rising, American students in particular seem to be falling farther and farther behind in these topics. If you ask most school children why, the answer will usually be, “I don’t get it,” or even worse, “It’s boring.”

Review: Beauty and the Beast (2017)

I went into the 2017 live action Beauty and the Beast with certain expectations, given that the soundtrack of the 1991 animated version lit up my sixth Christmas… and most of the rest of that year. I played that VHS tape on repeat and knew every song by heart. It has a special place in my heart, and I desperately wanted this remake to hold the same magic and wonder. Sadly, it is a pale (if mostly entertaining) replica of a cinematic masterpiece.

Review: Logan

When you go to see a movie based on a comic, like Logan, you always hope that it does the source material justice. But more often than I’d like, fight scenes get added and lines get cut until the movie is an inferior version of the story. Logan is not one of those movies. A beautiful film with a palpable affection for the ink-and-paper original, it draws inspiration from classic westerns while presenting a new storyline that’s slimmed down, but takes care to allow the original’s themes to shine on screen.

Review – Kong: Skull Island

It’s been a while since I actually hit a movie opening night, and the nerdy glory of Kong: Skull Island made it feel like too long. With set pieces designed by local artist WarWolf Projects and a green screen for Kong selfies provided by PopCulture Classroom*, The Alamo Draft House turned what I expected to be just another movie night into something a little more special.
