I was extremely excited to see the movie “Tag” after I viewed it’s trailer during the previews of almost every other movie I saw in theaters.

From the trailer, I could immediately tell that “Tag” was supposed to be hilarious, and I thought that the movie’s extremely unique plotline really strengthened its chance of being a successful comedy.

The University of New Mexico's Medieval Institute is an interdisciplinary course of study that combines both English and history classes focusing on medieval studies, said Emily Northcutt, a recent UNM graduate. Northcutt was the president of the Medieval Studies Student Organization during the spring semester of 2018.

According to Northcutt, the Medieval Institute benefits the entire Albuquerque community, not just students attending UNM. She said this is due to the annual spring lecture series. The spring lecture series brings in people from all over the community.

Released on June 1, “Adrift” follows the true story of a couple, Tami Oldham and Richard Sharp, who were lost at sea when commissioned to sail a yacht from Tahiti to San Diego in 1983.

The world belonged to Belcalis Almanzar, other wise known as Cardi B, even if only for a day.

On April 7, Cardi B released her debut studio album titled “Invasion of Privacy.” No other album or artist in 2018 has had so much to prove.

Movie Review: Despite unique plot, Truth or Dare still disappoints

For about a month, every time I clicked on a YouTube video I was first forced to watch a commercial advertising the film “Truth or Dare.”

The commercial featured Lucy Hale, well known for her role as Aria in the TV show Pretty Little Liars, screaming at her male friend, daring him to cut his tongue out. The male character holds out his tongue, grips a knife, says something along the lines of “I can’t believe I’m doing this” and then — the screen fades to black.

Movie Review: Deadpool 2 continues to redefine superhero genre

As someone who had not yet seen the first “Deadpool” film and is not incredibly keen on superhero movies in general, I was not at all excited to see “Deadpool 2.”

That being said, this movie was so much more than your average superhero movie. It wasn’t at all child-friendly and was made up of an extreme amount of crude humor — not at all what I was expecting.
