Although I would never consider myself an extremely invested Wes Anderson fan, I do love a lot of his movies, and for me, it’s safe to say that “Isle of Dogs” did not disappoint. One of the best aspects of it for me was the music, composed by Academy Award-winning artist Alexandre Desplat, who a...

There was an idea: to bring together a group of remarkable people to see if we could become something more, so when they needed us, we could fight the battles that they never could. That is what Fandom Rant Radio began as--an idea, a seed planted in the minds of Horizon Honors alums Jack and Ryan Kenz...

These shows and songs have broken records upon records, and even with new waves of music and TV shows that rise to popularity, they still don't replace the older industry. This is for many reasons, one example coming from the show “Friends.” This popular show is seen as “iconic,” Adam Sternberg...

With less options for pre-teen shows on Disney and Nickelodeon today, many people remember the golden era of teen comedies, from the late 90s to the early 2000s. Lots of the most popular shows of their time ended for reasons unrelated to the show itself. As time goes on, the casts move on to bigger and...

Kanye West seems to be back on Twitter as usual. Instead of telling us when “Love Everyone” will be coming out, he brought renewed attention to himself over the past week with some controversial tweets.

Filed under Arts and Entertainment, Music

Many are familiar with the opening song “Alexander Hamilton,” which beautifully introduces Hamilton’s (Jimmie “JJ” Jeter) story and the roles of important figures in his life. This first song integrates both traditional ensemble, solo, and hints of rap, but its slow pace doesn’t set up for ...

It is rare for me to find a sequel of decent quality. It doesn’t help when there are movies using older content and twisting it in a way it was not meant to be twisted, and, although there’s no doubt about it that there have been well-made movies that have been produced recently, it seems as though ma...
