What do you get when you put Sherlock Holmes, HYDRA, and alcohol in one room? No you don’t get a bunch of drunk men; you get James Bond and his newest movie, “Spectre.” And frankly, that’s a whole lot more entertaining. Let me get my surprising opinion out there now: “Spectre” was better t...

As the football game went to halftime I began to go full-on nerd. It was time for the thing I had been waiting for all night: the release of the final Star Wars Episode VII trailer. As one of the biggest Star Wars fans ever I knew I would be able to point out every little detail within the trailer. ...

Ah, fall. With it comes the return of autumn leaves, windy days and plump turkeys. But with the return of fall comes the return of some of our favorite TV shows as well. And while there are plenty of old shows we love and enjoy, some new eye-openers are guaranteed to make television-watching all the more ...

Walking into the theater I was hopeful but not overly excited like the rest of Movie Club. From what I saw in the trailers, I thought this movie was a cross between Gravity and Interstellar: a person gets stranded in space plus a bunch of science mumbo-jumbo. I have never been more wrong. “The Martia...

The Concert That Fulfilled My Wildest Dreams

Ever since the third grade, Taylor Swift’s music has remained high on my playlists. Even songs such as Teardrops on My Guitar and Love Story, still remain popular. Her 1989 World Tour sold out large stadiums within minutes. My experience at the concert is one that I won’t forget. As I entered the arena, I had...

Capture     I wake up and all I see is white.     White walls, white floors, white bed, white sheets, white machinery with white tubes attached to my arm and chest.     As my heart rate jumps and my breath quickens, a gentle beeping in my room rises to a panicked chirp.     "Hello...

Students came back to Westminster this year with many different, interesting stories. Summer seminars, Camp Westminster, and exciting vacations were only a few of the many tales told around the halls. Yet, one story has been mostly untold: a competition held in Washington D.C. for upcoming web designers...

Normally, expiration dates are found on the back of milk cartons or loaves of bread. They’re a mark of when something turns bad.      Imagine if people had expiration dates too. What if the things they did wrong were printed on their skin until they proved themselves to be good again--until their e...

The summer was spent doing plenty of activities: going to amusement parks, tanning on beaches, or hanging out at camp. But there were many who just decided to stay near home and go see a good movie. And as it is with every summer, there were movies that came out on top and some that just flopped. Wor...
