Ever since freshman year, I have wanted to go to Ball State.

Sherlock fans rejoice. While this isn’t the fifth season we’ve been looking for, “Sherlock Gnomes” is a new and interesting take on the classic stories of Sherlock and Dr. Watson. While the sequel to “Gnomeo and Juliet” is primarily considered for children, I did enjoy it. The movie does ...

Although the Oscar nominated “Lady Bird” came out in early November of 2017, I just got around to seeing it. It was something I had been meaning to do for a while, and had been told I would enjoy.

I saw the movie “The Commuter” on Saturday, January 27, and I think it is a pretty decent film. It is nothing that I would ever see again, but it was worth the watch. “The movie was trash, it was not worth the money,” said Jackson Schrowe, 11. The story follows Michael Woolrich, the ...
