“Fantastic Beasts” welcomes fans back into the wizarding world

Gerard Desrosiers, Staff Writer December 5, 2016

This year has been a rough one, to say the least. For most, it’s the perfect time for the wizarding world of Harry Potter to come around to help alleviate some of the heaviness the real-world can accumulate as the New Year approaches. You’d think by now, us muggles would learn to suppress our addiction to this unhealthy escapism, but sadly, it’s not that easy.
Wizards, witches and wands are our drugs. And J.K. Rowling is our dealer.

Will “Westworld” soon become our reality?

Gerard Desrosiers, Staff Writer November 7, 2016

It’s a horror realized in HBO’s new show “Westworld” where the theme of artificial intelligence and bio-engineered cyborgs nearly parallels that of our reality, in both a mixture of clever entertainment and spot-on acknowledgment of real-life technological advancements.

Gerard Desrosiers, Staff Writer September 26, 2016

A sea of cowboy hats and denim jeans made up the crowd Saturday night during Chris Young’s performance to arguably the biggest crowd at the Green Music Center to date. The 31-year-old country artist performed songs from his newest album, “I’m Comin’ Over,” an album that in his words, “is the quickest album to gold I’ve ever created. I’ve put so much love and time into these songs—these songs I’ve made for you.”

“Narcos” season two blows audience away

Gerard Desrosiers, Staff Writer September 5, 2016

Once upon a time there was a wolf, and he was hungry. But this hunger wasn’t like any old hunger—oh no. Unlike most appetites, this one only grew the more it was fed. It was a craving, you see. An addiction. And by the time the wolf found what delicacy surrounded him, he took to gluttony and consumed it all. Gobbled it up just like that. All gone.

Gerard Desrosiers, Staff Writer August 30, 2016

A creation of the Duffer Brothers, Matt and Ross Duffer, “Stranger Things” succeeds in capturing the essence of the Sci-Fi obsessed trends of the 80s, reminiscing its viewers back to the style of movies like “E.T.” and “The Goonies” and never lets up its nostalgic grip during a well-paced, and expertly executed eight episode run.
