colors really grab attention immediately, and once you start there, it is difficult to leave. The work was bold, combining angles and color that commanded attention, and most were large enough to require the audience to step back from it and really study the form. Although
movies to enjoy that avoid the v-day cLiché
WRITTEN BY MARC CRUZ
I really enjoy watching films, but I tend to watch only a few types of genres. It takes a lot for me to really enjoy a film that's not in the category of the genres I do watch. One of those genres that I gravitate away from is romance films. So in spirit of Valentine's day, I asked a few of my classmates to recommend me a romance film. With each recommendation, I asked for a reason as to why they enjoyed the film and a rating out of 5 stars. I then watched those films and gave my input on them. My goal was to find a romance movie that avoided the cliché overrated romance films, that I would be able to enjoy and recommend to others.
characters flirt back and forth and end up together at the end. The feelings of the characters were quite mutual, and things seemed to be going well. Both knew that soon after they graduate college, Anna would have to go back to England due to the expiration of her student visa. Anna ends up violating the immigration laws, from wanting to stay in the US to spend the summer with Jacob, and is sent to England. The couple have a long distance relationship, but have to face obstacles dealing with immigration and other people. I feel that the film stands out from other romance films due to the reality of the story. The actors were able to show emotions of happiness, anger, desperation, and love in a way where the audience is able to feel the same emotion. The musical score was also something that I really enjoyed while watching. “Like Crazy” is definitely a film I’d recommend to other people.
as comical romances. The relationship between the Sam and Suzy is more humorous than romantic. Sam is a Khaki Scout who meets Suzy at a church performance and they become pen pals since then. Falling in love through the course of their correspondence, they make a plan to unite and run away together. They hike and camp out in the wilderness with a goal to reach an island. Their romantic tension grows throughout this which viewers can find to be comical but as well as awkward. I say awkward because both characters are twelve, so both don't really have a sense of romance, thus their relationship is quite amusing to watch. The film as a whole was enjoyable because it dealt with serious situations, but it was directed more lighthearted. It contained what I’d hoped for: adventure, comedy, drama, and romance, and combined it all to fit well together. Therefore it's a great film to watch if you don't want to watch the typical romance movie.
relationship will turn out. The film can get confusing at times, due to the jumping of flashbacks and moving into the future which isn't in chronologically ordered. But the characters relationship is definitely shown well, as it gets stronger and weakens over time. There's a lot of pessimism shown in the beginning, as Dell tries to win over Kimberly. This pessimism is also shown when their relationship is seems to fall apart. The film has a weird aesthetic in the way it was shot, which makes it more enjoyable to watch. Overall, Comet is a film that I’d recommend if you're looking for something different from the stereotypical romance genre.

MOVIE REVIEW: tHE PRINCESS BRIDE
WRITTEN BY JEROMY WILL
Husky Howls: 9.5/10
“Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles....” These are what the narrator of this movie says is in it, and that quote doesn't disappoint. This movie has a little bit of everything.
The characters are probably one of the best parts of the movie. All of them are very generic character types, but with a twist. You have the thought to be dead love interest which of course turns out to be alive and better than ever, the princess that is getting married, but then there's the vengeful fencer that want to kill the man who killed his father, a muscular man that's actually a nice guy….. there are a lot of characters that are all lovable. Even characters that are hated by some people, by the end of the movie, they at least did one thing that I could look back and say they liked a part that character is in.
This movie is great for Valentine's Day, with or without a date. The romance is definitely the drive of the movie, since it's about soon-to-be Princess Buttercup becoming the wife of one she does not love, while her true and only love is said to be dead, being killed by pirates. Because of this, the dead love returns (not much of a spoiler) and tries to get his true love back.
This movie is perfect to watch when thinking about love,or you just want to watch a good movie. With good pacing and comedy that isn't shoved down your throat, it's a nice film to watch with your significant other, or alone on a nice singles awareness day. It would be inconceivable to not watch it this Valentine's holiday.
