I had my first “real” date when I was 15 with this guy we’ll call “Dave.” Dave and I had been flirting for a while in that awkward, high-school way. You know, ambiguous Facebook statuses and texts filled with winky faces.
Fans of the extremely loved “Harry Potter” series were shocked Thursday when it was revealed that a spinoff movie series, based off the “Harry Potter” companion book “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them,” is in the works. This news is of particular interest to many college students, many of whom grew up with the “Harry Potter” series and are still avid fans.
Summer could easily be bookended by two exciting superhero movies—that is, if your summer ended in July. With all the hype they’ve been getting, you may not realize that there are more movies coming out than “The Avengers” and “The Dark Knight Rises”—but what are they?
On Tuesday morning, Oscar nominations were announced. As usual, there were surprises aplenty. There were some good nominations, but most of them left anyone watching the Oscar race stunned. Here are what we think are the good, the bad and the ugly of the nominations.
Because the studios hold all their important movies until the end of the year so they are Oscar-eligible, the movies that come out right after New Years are never that significant. However, we in Cadenza don’t want you to not see any movies all semester, so here are some of our best (and worst) bets.
While there are probably a few of you out there who are legitimately looking forward to “Breaking Dawn – Part 1,” we at Cadenza don’t quite understand why. For the rest of us, here are 10 ways to make the movie more enjoyable. 1. Every time Robert Pattinson is on screen, yell, “Kill the spare!” to mock all the Harry Potter fans dragged by their Twihard friends. 2.
In general, there are three kinds of 3-D movies. First, there’s “Avatar,” which is in its own class. Then, there are the many movies that have come out in recent years that have tried to jump on the 3-D bandwagon. These are mostly sequels to sequels, which by definition need something to distinguish them: “Step Up 3-D,” “Jackass 3-D,” “Saw 3-D,” the list goes on.
There are a lot of theatrical elements that contribute to making a good movie. Crisp pacing, believable acting and character development, for example, are pivotal. Unfortunately, for “Sucker Punch,” when you match up this movie’s traits with the ones listed above, nothing fits. What could have saved “Sucker Punch”? A little thought would have gone a long way.
It’s officially the beginning of the end: “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1,” the first part of the last movie in the Harry Potter series. The end is near, and Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) is trying to destroy all parts of his nemesis Lord Voldemort’s soul.
Ever think you can make a movie better than the filmmakers could and for way less money? If so, you should come watch some Wash. U. students take on this challenge in WUTV’s Third Annual Sweding Festival.
