The Breakfast Club - Movie review by Jenna, Teen Blogger

Posted on April 29, 2017 at 10:49 AM
The Breakfast Club: if you haven’t seen it, you have probably heard of it. It’s just one of those classic 80s movies, like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off or Footloose. You may wonder how a movie about five students spending a Saturday in detention could in anyway be exciting or inspiring enough to capture audiences and become a classic the way it has. But that’s the thing about good movies; they manage to take simplistic situations and transform them into interesting and thematic films that become the favorite of many.

The Black Halo - Album Review by Jonathan, Teen Blogger

Posted on April 10, 2017 at 02:28 PM
The Black Halo was released on March 15, 2005, and nearly every review I could find of the album started with something along the lines of “is it too early to call this Album of the Year?” The fact that I’m not surprised in the slightest is probably a good omen. For those who have never heard of Kamelot, they’re a Symphonic Metal band based in Florida, but with members and guest musicians hailing from Holland, Germany, Norway, and recently Canada. A direct sequel to 2003’s Epica (more on that later), The Black Halo is widely considered the band’s magnum opus, and over 10 years later, it arguably still holds that title.

An Airplane Carried Me To Bed - Album Review by Jonathan, Teen Blogger

Posted on April 7, 2017 at 02:53 PM
Adam Young, better known as lead singer, writer, producer, and - well, everything else - of the electronica act Owl City, is one of my absolute favourite musicians. He has the talent of being able to write songs that leave the listener with a complex mix of emotions, usually with happiness or peacefulness at the forefront and a bittersweet array of other feelings underneath. Some of the best examples of this can be found on the album An Airplane Carried Me To Bed, which he released under the alias Sky Sailing. This album started as a collection of songs recorded by Adam Young before Owl City even started, although they weren’t released until 2010. Because of the different name and relative obscurity, this album slips under the radar of many Owl City fans, but in my opinion, it is some of Adam Young’s best work.

Cinematics - Album Review by Jonathan, Teen Blogger

Posted on April 4, 2017 at 08:31 AM
Set It Off’s 2012 studio effort Cinematics is an album that I never thought I would like as much I as did. On the surface, it's another rock album in the same vein as My Chemical Romance or Panic at the Disco. As much as I don’t like using the term “emo,” it’s admittedly a fair description of this album. However, this album is set apart by doing a few things outstandingly well, at the expense of other aspects being mediocre.
