You are some of the most kind, wonderful, and sweet people I’ve ever met and I want […]

Review: Christopher Nolan’s DUNKIRK

Posted: July 21, 2017 at 8:27 am   /   Movie Reviews

There is plenty to admire about the film, particularly on its technical level. Shot on 70mm film, the gorgeous cinematography captures highly realistic battle sequences by sea, air and land. The special effects department takes a cue from Mad Max: Fury Road, using practical effects as often as possible, which opens the imagination to how some […]

Review: ‘Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets’ Starring Dane DeHaan, Cara Delevingne

Posted: July 21, 2017 at 7:49 am   /   Movie Reviews

When the first trailer dropped for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets, I was captivated by the imagery – and believed this film could very well be quite the spectacle upon its release in July.

Aquabats! Delight at Delmar Hall

Posted: July 16, 2017 at 5:45 pm   /   Concert Reviews, Concerts, Reviews

I was not prepared for what I had entered into when I walked into Delmar Hall. In jean shorts and a tank top, I was completely underdressed for The Aquabats! show in St. Louis, Wednesday, July 15. Adults and children alike who packed into the Hall were decked out in full Aquabats! costumes, gear, or […]

Aesop Rock Impresses at Delmar Hall

Posted: July 15, 2017 at 3:38 pm   /   Concert Reviews, Concerts, Local, Opinion, Reviews

Delmar Hall hosted Aesop Rock, along with Rob Sonic and DJ Zone, Tuesday, July 11. Rock stuck with Open Mike Eagle as his one opener, a solid stylistic choice that proved to lend a smooth transition between the two acts. Eagle stood as one man, with one microphone, and one computer. I was curious to […]
