THE JESUIT DALLAS STUDENT VOICE AND NEWSPAPER SINCE 1942 - DIGITAL SINCE 2010

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...
It is fairly common for Hollywood to release at least a few films each year about, well, films. Possibly nothing is more characteristic of American cinema than its frequent vanity-driven practice of looking at itself in the mirror, praising itself for bringing “magic” to the masses. Occasionally, however, there comes a movie that takes a significant step back and really...
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. Stallone, who originally starred as the underdog Rocky Balboa in the 1990s movie series, draws back a fan base with the classic heart-warming rags to riches story. With an enormous following in Pittsburgh, the...
Today, Wednesday, November 30, 2011, Jesuit’s Not for Sale Club will be screening The Dark Side of Chocolate in Hughes Hall.  This film by Miki Mistrati and U. Roberto Romano is a documentary about the illegal use of child slaves who are trafficked to the Ivory Coast for the gathering and selling of cocoa beans. Luckily, we live in Dallas,...
Abandoned in the dead of winter, one man crawls from his own grave to go in search for the man who murdered his son, barely grasping onto his life after a vicious bear encounter. Every movement pained by his scars as he hunts for the revenge he deserves. I entered the movie not wanting to be forced to watch gratuitous violence simply for the sake...
This past Friday, May 4, was a notable one to cinephiles for multiple reasons – most importantly as the U. S. release of Joss Whedon and Marvel’s four-years-in-the-making superhero film, The Avengers. However, there is a smaller, typically less publicized (and less festive) event that has occurred on this date for the past several years – May 4 has...
Crazy Rich Asians, one of the first American films with an all-Asian cast, has blown up to be one of the biggest blockbuster films of 2018. Released on August 16, this movie has been well-received by critics and the general public for its great cast, plot, and the hopeful future it brings to Asian-American actors. Never reading the novel,...
It is a shame that today’s movies can't hold a candle to the cinema of yesteryear. Movies like Hotel Transylvania 2, Pixels, and The Maze Runner invade our screens and only occasionally are interrupted by a great movie. Kids disregard true movie magic in favor of animation and repetitive action sequences. The imperative of making a great film is...
