This year at the South By Southwest film festival they screened over 130 movies of all genres from all over the world. No one is able to watch all of them, but I saw a good portion. This year’s selection was very strong, and overall I liked more movies than last year. I previously reviewed my personal festival...

Marketing Major student Myles Payne studies by day, but in his free time he pursues his ultimate dream of his clothing brand Ugly Face – taking-off with accelerated force.  His clothing uniquely stands-out on campus when he walks to and from class.

Writer and director Wes Anderson is well-known for quirky characters, masterfully over-composed and stylized shots and fantastic stories.

The duo put on an epic performance combining humor, high energy, and an expert display of musicianship. All for an unforgettable night at White Oak Music Hall. After cancelling their tour dates for all of...

A play about the making of a terrible movie makes for great entertainment. You don’t have to be a fan of the 1963 film “Antony and Cleopatra” to enjoy the Alley Theatre’s production of “Cleo.” Even Cleo’s playwright Lawrence Wright calls it a terrible movie. “Cleo” is surprisingly funny for a show about an infamous love...

It’s the opening night of UH’s newest theatre production. The curtain rises to reveal a beautiful set, and perfectly placed spotlights illuminate the characters in their costumes that seem to come from another world. As the story progresses, the spectators probably don’t stop to think about the hours upon hours of...

The time of summer bodies, Instagram bikini pictures and nude models are upon us. With the rise of the “slim-thick” movement, it becomes harder and harder to love your body. From the constant reminder of pictures with the “ideal body” surfing the web, magazines and even billboards, it seems as though America is trying...
