Movie of the Week

  I love Matt Damon. He’s exhibited a solid range of acting over the past twenty years, and despite being a bit…helpless…sometimes (“The Martian,” “Saving Private Ryan,” “Interstellar” and probably a good portion of his movies) he is someone who consistently delivers admirable performances.   But how did it all start? With math…it started with […]

“Dark Souls 3:” No Pain, no Game

Do you enjoy video games? Would you consider yourself masochistic? Does being ruthlessly punished over and over again by a video game that has no regard for your sanity appeal to you? If you answered yes to any of the questions above (more specifically the second two) then you might be interested in playing “Dark […]

Movie of the Week

I’m probably going to be telling a lot of stories about the first time I watched these movies for Movie of the Week, so bear with me. The summer following my freshman year of high school, I had made a list of all of the IMDB Top 250 films that I had never seen. Each […]

Convention Cosplay: a Much Needed Lesson in Consent

Every year, thousands of geeks, comic book nerds, gamers and average citizens attend the many conventions around the country. These are tailored to attract multitudes of people from all walks of life. As these conventions have grown in size and popularity over the past decade, so too has the art of cosplay, which—for the uninitiated—is […]

Scholarship Hopes to Entice and Support Transfer Students

Transfer students make up about 30 percent of the undergraduate population at Seattle University—with around 450 transfers per year. However, many students transferring from community colleges and other institutions find tuition a staggering roadblock as costs continue to rise. A new scholarship and program sponsored by Alfie’s Fund—a nonprofit organization—is being introduced to combat the […]

Movie of the Week

  Teaser: We’re heading to France for this Movie of the Week with one of my absolute favorite films. Feast in its eye-popping visuals, delightful story, and…a travelling gnome? When I was first diving into the vast world of film, I relied primarily on IMDB’s Top 250 list (a solid place to start for any […]

Critic’s Corner: Dawn of Disarray

Ever since the tepid critical reception of “Man of Steel” in 2013, DC Comics has tried to play a major game of catch-up with Marvel, which has essentially held a monopoly on the superhero genre since they premiered their Marvel Cinematic Universe in 2008. I immediately had doubts when DC announced a slew of films […]

Writing Upstream with Professor Ki Gottberg

Despite being on sabbatical, Ki Gottberg—who has been teaching at Seattle University for over 25 years—is still hard at work. During her sabbatical, Gottberg adapted the children’s book “The Last Salmon” to the stage. Part concert, part storytelling, the play has garnered success and praise from both children and adults during its run at the […]
