A new ‘Destiny’

Edward Goquingco, Copy Editor September 23, 2014

With the recent release of both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One next-gen game systems, developers are left with the challenge of creating games as equally as innovative. With the next-generation systems’ endless potential, developers will try to take advantage of a more powerful processor, graphics card and stronger CPU. 


‘No Good Deed’ is no good

Edward Goquingco, Copy Editor September 16, 2014

Recently released movie “No Good Deed” is just another typical suspense thriller. Rotten Tomatoes would not disagree with this statement as a consensus of movie critics reviewed it at a measly 12 percent fresh. One would think that with strong actors such as Golden Globe Nominee Idris Elba and Academy Award Nominee Taraji P. Henson, the movie would be average at best.

Edward Goquingco, Copy Editor September 9, 2014

It’s hard to believe that “Songs about Jane” was released nearly 14 years ago, as It was Maroon 5’s debut album. In the last decade, Maroon 5 became a household name as it captured listeners with hits such as “She Will Be Loved,” “Makes Me Wonder” and “Moves Like Jagger.”  Now Maroon 5, led by lead singer Adam Levine who is also a judge on the hit show on “NBC’s The Voice,” joined by his fellow band mates Jesse Carmichael, Micky Madden and Ryan Dusick deliver their fifth studio album. The band hopes to remind fans, that the band is still around and going stronger.

Michael Cera’s surprise folk experiment

Edward Goquingco, Copy Editor August 26, 2014

Back in fall of 2007, a movie titled “SuperBad” was released.  It follows two socially awkward best friends, played by actors Jonah Hill and Michael Cera, going through their final year of high school. These two friends set on an adventure to make their last year of high school the most memorable time of their lives by partying, chasing their high school crushes and getting wasted on occasion. Most high school seniors were able to connect with Hill and Cera’s characters when trying to make their last year in high school a memorable one.  Some of us are familiar with Cera, a Canadian actor who plays the exact same nerdy, awkward, level headed and bland character in every movie he was ever casted in.
