Movie Review: Tomb Raider

Published Monday, March 19, 2018 at 12:30 pm
https://www.hcpress.com/arts/movie-review-tomb-raider.html
March 19, 2018. There’s a rule among movie buffs that there has never been a decent live-action adaptation of a video game. Not a single one. A scant few detractors will defend the original “Resident Evil” or “Mortal Kombat” movies, but even then the arguments are rarely more passionate than “it works as a guilty pleasure.” The Angelina Jolie-led “Tomb Raider” movies from the early 2000’s are certainly no exception to this rule, though the 2001 original is the highest-grossing video game movie of all time. This commercial success from nearly two decades ago has led Hollywood to excavate the character of Lara Croft and let her take another shot at representing the medium. By Bob Garver / Read more…

Black Mountain College Semester 2018 at Appalachian — March events

Published Monday, February 26, 2018 at 1:12 pm
Feb. 26, 2018. Black Mountain College was structured differently than most educational institutions at the time.

As an early example of a liberal arts college, this model has since spread throughout the U.S. and is used at Appalachian State University today. / Read more…

Movie Review: Game Night

Published Monday, February 26, 2018 at 12:48 pm
https://www.hcpress.com/boone/movie-review-game-night.html
Feb. 26, 2018. “Game Night” sees its characters playing one of those elaborate role-playing games that’s spread out over several miles and involves a full company of actors. I’m weary of movies with this kind of premise because of the inevitable twist: at some point, we’re going to learn that everything that’s been happening is all part of the game. It’s the same thing with movies about con artists, magicians, or people who meddle in dreams. It’s not that I necessarily mind being played for a fool, I can enjoy some well-planned manipulation, but it just seems like a waste of time when the movie practically announces its intentions so early the way this one does.
