With so much of the news cycle devoted to the coronavirus, it can feel like we’re living through our very own apocalypse. It’s a scary time to be alive, and the fact is, a lot of our lives have become incredibly uncertain and uprooted as a direct result of the virus, quarantining and socially distancing...

OPINION: Justice underserved at film awards

OPINION: Justice underserved at film awards

ANNIKA ZEIGLER, Evergreen columnist

February 27, 2020

The 2019-2020 film awards season has come to an end, so it’s only fair we look at it in review. The season, peppered with political speeches like Patricia Arquette’s, also saw justice for actors who have historically been snubbed (I’m looking at you, Renee Zellweger). In December 2019, ...

As Valentine’s Day approaches, many couples plan to try a new restaurant, go sightseeing, or visit a theater. Others will opt to stay inside, especially considering the February snow that’s supposed to hit Pullman in the coming weeks. Many of us prefer to "Netflix and Chill" for romantic occasions ...

Ranking the ‘Twilight’ movies

Ranking the ‘Twilight’ movies

MINDY MALONE, Evergreen columnist

February 13, 2020

Valentine’s Day is tomorrow so I think it’s only fair we address the greatest love story of our generation: “Twilight.” I love these movies. I watch them regularly and I unironically refer to them as cinematic masterpieces. These movies really had a girl from my middle school telling everyone she...

“Abominable” follows unoriginal plot

“Abominable” follows unoriginal plot

ROOS HELGESEN, Evergreen columnist

November 20, 2019

I’m sorry, but finding the abominable snowman and going on an adventure with your friends to take him home is not really what I would call original. I mean, why was he on the roof in the first place? Ultimately, this movie just does not make any sense. “Abominable” is the SEB’s latest film...

“Good Boys” could have been better

“Good Boys” could have been better

ROOS HELGESEN, Evergreen columnist

November 13, 2019

My first thought when hearing about this movie was, "This is going to be the closest thing to a live-action “South Park” we are ever going to get." It’s crude, funny and raunchy as hell. The movie “Good Boys” centers around a middle school boy and his two friends getting ready to go to...

If you haven’t seen this movie, where have you been? Tom Holland, who plays Peter Parker, brings us another thrilling and hilarious addition to the “Spider-Man” saga. Beware if you haven’t watched “Avengers: Endgame” — spoilers ahead. The known dead Tony Stark gives his apprentice...

‘Scary Stories’ stays true to original with some new spooks

ROOS HELGESEN, Evergreen columnist

October 22, 2019

Those monsters will haunt me for the rest of my life. “Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark” is a movie based on the classic book series of the same name. What really sets the series apart from other horror novels is the horrific illustrations by Stephen Gammell. The movie did a great job staying...

Jordan Peele’s ‘Us’ takes viewers on wild emotional rollercoaster

ROOS HELGESEN, Evergreen columnist

October 16, 2019

This movie made me scared of my own reflection. Director Jordan Peele did it again with his second horror film as well as his second time in the director’s chair. “Us” follows a family trying to enjoy a nice relaxing vacation together.  When their lives are suddenly thrown into chaos by...

‘Lion King’ is fun but adds nothing to original

‘Lion King’ is fun but adds nothing to original

ROOS HELGESEN, Evergreen columnist

October 9, 2019

Oh my god is that a real lion? The live-action remake of the Lion King has top of the line animation, creating a second per second photorealistic world that looks almost better than reality. Is it really a live-action remake? It’s totally not live action — it's animated. The king himself...
