Although I am a cinematic fan of all three principal actors, I cannot say I was a complete fan of the movie “The Intruder,” especially with current ticket prices. The acting was good and the main location and surrounding property were captivating, but the story, however, was weak, and the fear factor was non-existent.
Halsey’s new song highlights the frustrations of women
Body image issues, beauty expectations, catcalls, societal expectations and angry women are all issues that star in Halsey’s newest music video for her first single “Nightmare”, off her highly anticipated third album. Her explosive new single- and even more powerful music video- are angry and political, fighting back against the expectations of women everywhere. While Halsey hasn’t released the name of her upcoming album, she has set an extremely high bar with how amazing this song is. Compared to some of her other music video, …

The Crack Shack packs a lot in a little
In a space that once housed a recording studio, the Crack Shack is now open for business in bustling Old Town. The name alone prompts double-takes from passerby unfamiliar with the franchise, as they prowl the streets in search of Black Friday deals. If they’re hungry and curious, they stop to check it out, greeted by a giant chicken statue once they step into the restaurant. The Crack Shack offers a small but creative selection of sandwiches, bowls, half fried birds and full fried birds, …
Pasadena welcomes another NorCal based coffee chain
Hearing the words “free coffee” will get anyone on a natural high before the caffeine is even consumed. But most of the time “free” comes with paying a price.
The current trilogy of Star Wars films have so far been pretty good. J.J. Abrams and Rian Johnson have done a good job on their movies, and the first anthology film, “Rogue One,” was good too. And now we have the second anthology film, “Solo,” the origin story of Han Solo. The idea of the film was risky in itself, since characters in the film have already been portrayed by actors in the original trilogy, with Han Solo having been played by Harrison Ford and …
Mediocre ramen spot replaces popular Mexican restaurant
It was the perfect day for ramen when I took a visit to Akira Ramen, which happens to be located right across the street from PCC on Colorado Boulevard. The weather was gloomy, a bit chilly and I had the appetite to devour a big bowl of delicious ramen. However, in all honesty it was not all that.
‘Voicenotes’: Who tf broke Charlie Puth’s heart?
Charlie Puth’s overnight success on “See You Again” (a tribute track for the late Paul Walker), resulted in him releasing what felt like a rushed, unoriginal debut album in 2016, earning one of the lowest scores ever on Metacritic and leaving many wondering if the pretty-faced, perfect-pitched singer is nothing more than a typical YouTube star. Now, Puth is back with his sophomore album, “Voicenotes,” to prove to music listeners that he is more than capable of delivering an authentic musical masterpiece.
Take a crack at Crackin’ Kitchen

Deadpool 2: Wasn’t that Thanos?
Profanity Warning: I say fuck. I am a huge Deadpool fan, as a lot of people who like comic book superheroes are. There’s something about his 4th-wall-breaking, dark and unpredictable humor that makes him such a fun character. So when I heard that there was going to be a Deadpool movie two years ago, I was ecstatic. And for good reason; that movie was amazing. Ryan Reynolds captured the character perfectly, unlike his portrayal in the 2008 “X-men Origins: Wolverine.” Fuck that movie. But now …
