  • BY MATTHEW EVANGELISTA Standing through the sunroof of a limousine a group of young, drunk and rowdy white men glide past a seemingly endless line of Mexicans at the border yelling, in a snobbish stupor, “U-S-A, U-S-A.” This is the first, but not the last, piece of social commentary which tracks alongside the main plot of Logan, director James Mangold’s newest film featuring Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine. This movie will conclude Jackman’s 17-year saga playing this...

  • By Meghan Weatherall Saying it was magical may seem a bit cliché, but that’s what Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was. As the Waterloo theatre lights dimmed and Hedwig’s Theme filled the room with its classical chime, the crowd fell silent. Like myself, many in attendance for the Nov. 17 premiere have waited for more than five years for a new Harry Potter movie. I felt like shouting the famous Sirius Black line,...
