The Street Code Myth: A ‘spoiler free’ review of “Black Mass” Johnny Depp shines in his darkest role yet

What is it about the persona of larger than life criminals and films about them that capture public
attention so effectively?
I have always stood somewhere between being mystified by and somehow relating to
characters like James “Whitey” Bulger. We do always have a choice, and the result is what
separates the animals from the citizens .
Black Mass is another chapter aimed at satisfying the desire to understand what makes a man
operate so far outside the lines of civility.

Shoreline teachers bring music to the community

Musical talent fills the halls of SCC as three different Shoreline instructors bring their own unique styles of sounds to listeners.

Pitch Perfect 2

They are back, Pitches! The original “Pitch Perfect” was a hit so it's not surprising that the sequel is too.

Beca Mitchell (Anna Kendrick) has lead the Barden Bellas to three national collegiate a cappella championship titles, and the group continues to defy convention and amaze audiences.

The Second Mango

“The Second Mango” by Shira Glassman starts off on a fairy tale note. The young queen Shulamit is captured by gons who want to hold her for ransom, but she is rescued by a mysterious masked stranger. This sets the tone for the rest of the book – Shulamit and the masked stranger embark on adventures on the back of a dragon who can transform into a horse, looking for glory and true love.

Power and corruption on the silver screen

The game of politics is often about the quest for, and manipulation of, power. It’s a story as old as human civilization. This might be why politics tends to lend itself to good storytelling. Movies have often sought spectacle and narrative among the ranks of political movies.


In a world where the internet rules our lives and we can go longer without food than without a Wi-Fi connection, “Unfriended” hit a relevant social chord.

Even the unique camera work contributed to making this a current, relatable horror flick.

Director Levan Gabriadze created a high-quality movie with a low budget by letting the entire movie play out through a video conference call on a single computer screen.

Rest in peace, Mumford & Sons

It is with great sorrow that we must report to you that Mumford & Sons’ musical integrity passed away on March 9, 2015.

It had a brief but intensely successful life, earning the band four Billboard Awards and two Grammys.

Their musical integrity was first made known to the world through their 2009 debut album. Which was born after the heyday of bluegrass but stayed true to its roots, honoring its predecessors while making friends on modern pop and alternative charts.
