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.
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.
The Centennial Speech Team is finally wrapping up their season, just having gone to regionals at U-High on February 3rd. There are only six members of this team, but each student was ready to work hard, most having performed in not one but two events. An event is the type of speech you perform, and there are fourteen different kinds. These events range from humorous or dramatic acting to informative or persuasive speeches.
The biggest award show in Hollywood has finally released their nominations and like every year, there are some major oversights, along with some pleasant surprises that many could not have seen coming. Before diving into the major categories, I want to shed some light on great films that I didn’t expect to pick up smaller nominations.

I, Tonya tells the life story of Tonya Harding, player by Margot Robbie, Olympic figure skater and first female American in history to land a triple axel. The film gives plenty of background to Harding’s early life, having to live with an overbearing and abusive mother, Lavona Harding, played by Allison Janney.
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.
