“Orphan Black” is a drama created by Graeme Manson and John Fawcett, and starring Tatiana Maslany. The show airs on BBC, yet is filmed and takes place in Toronto, Canada. “Orphan Black” focuses on the morality of human cloning. This theme is introduced when the protagonist Sarah Manning takes on the identity of a woman she saw commit suicide who looks identical to her. Sarah later finds out the woman is Beth Childs , a police officer, and realizes she is in over her head. Sarah then finds out a truth that will shock her even more: she and Beth are part of a large group of clones.
Well known Folk band Mumford and Sons released their third album “Wilder Mind” this past Monday. One thing this album brings to fans is variations of either love or hate. “Wilder Mind” brings about a whole new sound for Mumford and Sons. They step away from their banjos and switches to all electric guitars with this album and brought a more Electronic/Rock kind of feel to their music. The band has been seen without their original style, not wearing suspenders, skinny jeans, or leather jackets. For many die heart fans this change is disheartening, putting the Mumford and Sons we have all grown to love at rest and bringing about a new era of the band sounding similar to Radiohead, U2, and/or Coldplay.
Twenty One Pilot’s newest album, “Blurryface,” comes out May 19. The band has released two singles leading up to the album drop. The first single, “Fairly Local,” was released via YouTube on March 16. The video has been viewed 2.8 million times since then and has been followed by their second single, “Tear in my Heart.” Both songs are different from their previous songs; they have a different, but not defined, sound. “Tear in my Heart” has had 2.5 million views since it was released to YouTube April 6. Check out both of the videos here!
“Little Boy” is a cute, heartwarming movie that is good for couples looking for a quick movie. The cast was all right, the themes were average, and the plot line had many holes in it. Jakob Salvati, who plays Pepper Busbee, does a pretty good job of acting like an adorable little boy. (Hence the title) He makes the audience really feel happy when he is happy and feel sad when he cries. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Hashimoto, did a good job as well in his supporting role. The themes of the movie were to believe in yourself and anything is possible, willpower is a strong thing, and never giving up. These are fairly common themes seen in many motivational movies. The plot itself was about a little boy, Pepper Busbee, whose father got sent to war. The movie is based around Pepper trying to bring his father home. Pepper was given a list of things to do that would help bring his father back home. Throughout the entire movie, Pepper, with the help of his new friend Hashimoto, is attempting to complete this list.
[W]hether you are looking for a romantic comedy or a classic, “Ten Things I Hate About You” will serve your needs. “Ten Things I Hate About You” is a modernization of Shakespeare’s “The Taming of the Shrew.” It came out in 1999 and it became a huge success for its leading actors. Heath Ledger, who plays Patrick Verona, is no joker in this movie. Ledger portrays an outsider and a rebellious teen, surrounded by rumors. Julie Stiles plays Katarina Stratford, a feminist against popularity. The two actors beautifully create a unique bond, heightening the experiencing of the movie. All though, Ledger’s intriguing Australian accent could be its own movie.
One day as I was walking out of a parking garage in downtown Elgin, my dad and I spotted a pair of street performers. It consisted of two men, one on guitar and one playing an awkwardly small toy drum kit.
