Bodily functions and not much else in “The Interview”

One of the buzzier moments of Hollywood recently, also affecting foreign policy, was the Sony hackings made by the group called the Guardians of Peace this past fall, threatening the movie “The Interview,” a comedy about the assassination of North Korean Leader Kim Jong-Un, being shown in theaters. The major U.S. theater chains backed out of showing the film on its release date, and since then the film has found another life on the internet. It’s been available on services like Amazon and iTunes, and has been available for Netflix streaming since Jan. 24. I was disappointed in December when the theater chains chose to not screen the movie. I thought it was a relatively weak move to give into the taunts of a hacker group, especially for a movie as superficial as “The Interview.” I’ve been interested in watching this movie, as I’ve enjoyed the movies that directing and… Keep Reading

In “Horns”, the devil is in the details

Ig Perrish is a wanted man, a passionate man and an innocent man accused of terrible things.Ig is also the instrument of evil and has the physical attributes to go along with it. In the film “Horns,” Daniel Radcliffe emerges all grown up from his Harry Potter persona, to a more grown-up and arguably more tormented soul than Potter ever was.  After development and distribution nightmares, Alexandre Aja (The Hill Have Eyes – 2006) directs this visually stunning piece from the mind of Joe Hill, “demon” spawn of auteur Stephen King. Hill’s story easily shows that the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree with rich and original characters with heavy Christian undertones, mostly mocking, but hey,  that’s ok!  It’s all part of the overall mood here.  There are also plenty of Easter eggs in the plot that you have to keep an eye out for, like locations, license plates,… Keep Reading

The Career Services Center’s biggest job fair of the year started at 1 p.m. on Friday, with the halls and rooms of the Atwood Memorial Center filled with employers waiting to meet SCSUs students.

Signs pointed in multiple directions, aiming to guide students in various employers’ direction, while a 23-page booklet gave brief descriptions of the companies and who they were looking to hire.

Power in Diversity Conference joins people statewide

St. Cloud State hosted its 6th annual Power in Diversity Leadership Conference, which started Thursday night and ended Sunday morning, featuring a variety of events, workshops, and keynote speakers that kept the schedule for the conference full. Managed by Multicultural Student Services, the conference was put on to provide students of color, and underrepresented students, with opportunities for personal growth and leadership development. Students and faculty came for the conference from around the region including the University of Minnesota, Southwest Minnesota State University, Winona State University, College of St. Benedict and St. Johns University. The theme for this year’s conference was “Remembering the Sixties While Charting the Future,” which seems to resonate the idea, while recently social justice improvements have been made, there is a lot more work to be done. This notion seems to follow the trend of recent events, which have been bringing race relations back into conversation,… Keep Reading

St. Cloud economy on the rise, despite recent closures

“Positive signs” was one of the comments St. Cloud’s Mayor Dave Kleis had to say regarding St. Cloud’s local economy recently. But, as of January 2015 stores such as Big Lots, Toys R Us, Work out World and Kmart in Waite Park have all announced they are closing their doors this month. ‘Going out of Business Sales’ can be seen in the Crossroads Mall, as the shopping outlet just lost its fifth consecutive store. Retailers closing in the mall alone include Wet Seal, P.S. From Aeropostal, New York & Company, Deb Shops and The Limited. Crossroad’s General Manager Darcy Eigan stated that the recent store closings would have a minimal effect on the success of the mall. “Out of 122 stores, five closures are not significant to us. It allows for more opportunities to re-merchandise and re-evaluate for what consumers want. We are constantly opening up stores and are in a… Keep Reading
