THE JESUIT DALLAS STUDENT VOICE AND STUDENT NEWSPAPER SINCE 1942

Over the summer, Sony and Marvel Studios announced that they would no longer work together due to bargaining disagreements. This was unfortunate to hear, as Spider-Man is a fan favorite in the MCU. Additionally, his story left us on a cliffhanger with the conclusion of Spider-Man: Far From Home. Despite the uproar from the fans, both sides seemed adamant that...
SPOILERS AHEAD The Meg (6.1/10 IMDB) features diver extraordinaire Jonas Taylor (Jason Statham) and company in a fight for the fragile survival of world's ecosystem when a prehistoric predator is released from its aquatic prison deep in the Pacific Ocean. Opening with a scene five years prior, Jonas makes the tough decision to leave two of his crew on board a...
As it is not a major summer block-buster, The Grand Budapest Hotel may have flown under the radar for a great majority of people. In addition to this, from a glance, it may seem like a period drama if a person were not to look closely at it but, it is most certainly not. Anyone who has ever seen...

Grudgement Day: A 21st Century Rocky Movie? Starring Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro, Grudge Match can easily be interpreted as a 21st century continuation of the patriotic Rocky series.

With an enormous following in Pittsburgh, the...
Hulu? HBO? Amazon Instant? Any online instant streaming service pales in comparison to the mammoth Netflix. As of October, the company boasts an impressive 69,170,000 subscribers worldwide, 43 million in the US alone. Snagging nine Golden Globe nominations for original shows and films alone, Netflix proves time and time again their superiority in the competitive market. Established in 1997 by...
One of the most daunting tasks in the life of a millennial is trying to find what to watch on Netflix. Netflixing has taken over our society and has been able to glue people to their phone, computer, or television for hours on end. Luckily for everyone reading this, I have broken down 100 of the most popular and...
When you think of sequels, the first thing that probably comes to mind is how they never are better than or even comparable to the original. Film goers often dwell on the disappointment of movies like Godfather Part 3 while failing to remember that some sequels such as The Empire Strikes Back and The Dark Knight have successfully expanded upon the success of...
