Review: ‘Avengers: Endgame’

Jake Sapp | Staff Writer Score: 95% Story/Characters: It is almost impossible to talk about this movie without mentioning the absolutely immense cast that it carries with it during its three hour runtime.

Review: ‘Us’

Henri Robbins | Staff Writer Score: 85% After directing the wildly successful Get Out, Jordan Peele’s Us is a stunning thriller which paints a portrait of haunting parallels.
