[REVIEW] Batman v Superman

by By: Hess Sahlollbey If my tickets were refundable, I would’ve left the theater after five minutes and asked for my money back. What should have been a simple grudge match between two orphans before they team up to face a greater evil is encumbered by a lengthy and superfluous political story and abstract metaphors. While Man Of Steel was an effective introduction to Superman, Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice can easily be...

“Screening Room” is causing waves in Hollywood Napster-founder, Sean Parker, intends to bring movies to your home on the day of their release for a competitive fee

by By: Joe Jodoin Earlier last week, Napster-founder Sean Parker announced his plans to release a video streaming device that will allow people to watch newly released movies at home the same day that they are released in theatres. The box itself would cost $150 to purchase and install, while each viewing of a movie would cost $50. This may seem expensive at first, but there are many scenarios where such an option would be...

Self-publishing has led to much needed diversity With more writers of diverse literature opting to self-publish for lack of traditional opportunies, we have to examine why their narratives are being cast aside

by At the recommendation of a friend, I started 2016 with a series called All For The Game. The first book was free on iBooks, and the other two books in the trilogy were less than a dollar each. Although I was confused why they were so cheap, I didn’t pay much thought to it. It wasn’t until I was halfway through the second book in the trilogy that I found out it was self-published, and at that point the occasional typos and the...

[REVIEW] The Legend of Hercules Engineering creativity, despite some minor issues, successfully goes the distance in this year's musical

by Creativity within a faculty can be a finicky thing, especially when the program is not typically associated with the arts. The stresses of other activities, mostly related to the horror stories of academics and the real possibility of an eight-year undergrad, can sap the mental and physical capacity to put something legitimately good onto a stage. This year’s engineering musical shattered this notion. The expectation has been...

by By: Hess Sahlollbey Whether you’re a Trekkie, an aspiring cosplayer or simply hoping to meet others who share your interests, this weekend belonged to the fans as they took over the downtown Toronto core. Punisher, Batman and Superman all have big releases this month and made their presence known from the moment I got off the subway and headed to Toronto ComicCon. An annual convention, Toronto ComicCon takes over the city center...

[REVIEW] Honours Performance Series — Unoriginal Sin

by Last week, I went to see one of the Honours Performance Series plays, Unoriginal Sin. In the director’s notes, they write, “While we know that this will be something that may cause you discomfort, our overall goal is to make you really consider your everyday views on sex.” I take this to be the thesis of their play, but I don’t think the play successfully achieved their goal. They also stated that they wanted to “tackle the subject...
