I will be honest, when I first saw the trailer for Alita, I already pinned it as a failure. Past history with terrible adaptations such as Ghost in the Shell has soured my opinion of anime adaptations. To my surprise, the movie was very well put together. The eyes, which I found weird and inhuman,...

I asked the Talon’s news crew to discuss their favorite movies and why they chose them. Interestingly, there was a focus on the past and childhood nostalgia: Patrick Strong, Editor: Forrest Gump, because of the way Tom Hanks plays the role. He's a fascinating character. I really think it’s be...

Creed 2 leads the way as the embodiment of Rocky, going very well for its representation of Rocky 4’s antagonist Ivan Drago, expanding upon the one-dimensional character.
