Centennial Ends Tough but Outrageous Football Season

Centennial football had a good year overall, it was kind of a tough season but they did the best they could scoring touchdowns and making the news a few times.  They ended with a record of 2-9. Most of the seniors didn’t like it but they’re just going to continue their season in college hopefully and the juniors, sophomores, and freshmen that played can try again next year because now they have that experience that can get them far.

Battle of the Sexes: Two Fantastic Leads Almost Make Up For The Fact That I Didn’t Get The Film I Signed Up For.

I had been looking forward to Battle of the Sexes ever since I saw the first trailer. A biopic centered around one the most viewed tennis matches in history doesn’t sound incredibly exciting at first, especially if you’re not a huge sports fan. However, when the match was between the current female champion Billie Jean King and former male tennis star Bobby Riggs, a lot of layers are added to the story. Not to mention the fact that recent Oscar winner, Emma Stone, and experienced comedic and dramatic actor Steve Carell were taking up the lead roles. By all accounts this film should have been nearly perfect, and while I definitely enjoyed myself, the pacing was off, the finale didn’t have the impact it needed, and ultimately it wasn’t the film that the trailers promised.

Kingsman: The Golden Circle An Incredibly Fun, Action Packed, Over the Top Sequel That Feels a Little Crowded.

The first Kingsman film taglined, The Secret Service, was released in 2014 with director Matthew Vaughn, known for 2010’s Kick-Ass and 2011’s X-Men: First Class, truly came out of nowhere. Despite being based on a beloved Graphic Novel, you would be hard pressed to find someone would knew of its existence before the film’s release. However, this lack of brand recognition actually helped Kingsman more than hurt it. With expectations relatively low, many audience members were not expecting one of the best spy-comedies in decades.
