Bo Burnham and Amy Anderson lit up the stage with a comedy show at the Fine Arts Center on Saturday, September 12th.
Shayna Murphy gives Halloween II a 2/5 stars. Somewhere between Quentin Tarantino’s witty, pop culture-infused banter and the sly commercial sleaze of the “Crank” series, people forgot what true exploitation cinema is like. Aggressive, offensive and always in poor taste, few modern filmmakers have the chutzpah to venture over such tough terrain.

This season’s films took us well beyond the thunderstorms of summer days – from the halls of Hogwarts to the bustling streets of 1950s France – and in some cases, brought us straight to hell. Here we break down the best (and worst) of the season.
“Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince,” the sixth installment in the Harry Potter franchise, opened July 15 and quickly secured its spot as a summer blockbuster.

In the spirit of Woodstock, music festivals have risen to prominence over the last decade. There is, perhaps, no better example of this feat than the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. The annual event, held over the last nine years in Manchester, Tenn., has become one of the premier destinations for music enthusiasts.

Caption Cloudy skies and rain cast a shadow over the festival’s first day If the first night was highlighted mostly by sporadic weather, Thursday night’s attractions were met with similarly uneven results. The forecast ranging from bands that generated the high voltage of Tennessee lightning to ones that barely generated the excitement of a passing shower. Despite Kanye West’s infamous set problems last year, hip-hop regenerated in full force Thursday night with high-energy shows from festival newcomers, MURS and People Under the Stairs. Both emcees were successful at integrating the crowd early and succeeded at keeping the drenched festival-goers dancing…
It’s the wee hours of the morning and I just got home from seeing the midnight, or should I say all-night, release of “Watchmen.” If you get chance, definitely go check it out. Just try to ignore the fact that Snyder’s interpretation of Nixon has a striking resemblance to Rocky Dennis, and that the movie is nearly three hours long.
