Ready Player One: Good, But Not Great

I like many was skeptical about Ready Player One from the first trailer. The film centered around a contest taking place inside the virtual reality world of The Oasis seemed to mark the point where 80s nostalgia went too far. After the success of Stranger Things, and It, a book based entirely around 80s pop culture seemed like a no brainer to adapt into a feature film. The difference is Stranger Things and It used nostalgia as more of backdrop to tell a unique story with lovable characters, Ready Player One one the other hand seemed to use it as a crutch. However, despite its lackluster script and performances, Ready Player One proves that Spielberg still knows how to direct an charming, fun and entertaining action film.

Hats Allowed at Centennial

Congratulations Centennial Students, we can finally wear hats in school. During last semester Mr. Riegler decided to talk to the teachers about what they think about allowing hats in school. He also talked to some students to see how they would feel about hats being allowed. Most of the teachers and students decided that they wouldn’t mind hats in classes. Mr. Riegler decided the new semester would be a great time to start this new rule. No hoods allowed but now your ears can be nice and toasty in class and you can hide your bad hair day with a nice hat. 

Opinion: Take A Knee

The idea of systematic racism in America is often ignored. As of the past 7 years, we’ve heard of protest following the shootings of Trayvon Martin, Michael Brown, Philando Castile, not to mention all the unnamed. There are websites dedicated to mapping police brutality and its concealed rise in America. We’ve all seen protests, whether violent, peaceful, or subtle. The most controversial as of late has been the idea of taking a knee during the national anthem, popularized by former quarterback Colin Kaepernick. We asked Centennial students their thoughts of kneeling, and their participation.

Review: A Wrinkle in Time

A Wrinkle in Time marks the first major misstep in director Ava DuVernay career. She previously directed the Oscar nominated Selma and the hit Netflix documentary 13th. Even though DuVernay is going to take most of the blame for the film’s poor quality, as most directors do, it isn’t completely her fault. The writing and to a lesser extent the acting and visuals are the main reasons why A Wrinkle in Time falls flat.
