Jojo Rabbit: A Comedy About WW2, One Way or Another

Please note that the opinions of this review only reflect the views of the author, and do not represent FCS or the Phoenix Enquirer as a whole. It may be hard to believe, but it’s true. They pulled off a comedy about the tragic events of WW2, when Hitler vowed to destroy everyone who was different from him. The movie was directed by Taika Waititi, the director of Thor: Ragnarok, so I promise you this movie is better than you expect. And even though this is a comedy, it manages to keep it honest and depressing at the same time.   In the movie, we follow a 10 year old boy who dreams of being like Hitler. He attends a training camp for Hitler Youth in hopes of being the best patriot he can be. Unfortunately, he gets scars from a grenade incident after a failed revenge attempt. After that,…

An Amazing Hidden Game: Slime Rancher!

You may have never heard of this game before, but I can assure you that it is one of the most underrated games ever. In Slime Rancher you play as Beatrix LeBeau, a young woman who was shipped to the far, far, away range in a small pod by the 7zee cooperation. When you wake up you get a game tutorial, and then the fun begins.  I have played over almost the whole game, and the only reason I haven’t completed everything is because the developers are constantly updating the game!  I was looking for a game that contained battles and cuteness at the same time, and then I found Slime Rancher. Slime Rancher is a game for people who enjoy adorable farming simulators, and also brutally murdering their enemies. Wait… Did I forget to mention how amazing the graphics are? Slime Rancher’s graphics are smooth and the lighting really…


The Fault in Her Campaign Promise

Presidential Candidate for the democratic party, Elizabeth Warren, has been quoted as saying, “Every person in America should be able to work hard, play by the same set of rules, & take care of themselves & the people they love. That’s what I’m fighting for, and that’s why I’m launching an exploratory committee for president.” From reading that statement, I got the understanding that she wished to continue our current gun laws, as she said she wanted to let people take care of themselves. However, she was also quoted saying, “We’ve gotta have a leader who’s willing to stand up to the gun lobby and say no more.” With this contradiction of statements, I was quite uncertain of her standpoint on this law. Looking further, I learned that she didn’t want less strict gun laws or even the usual demands of background checks. But she wanted something more.  “Warren is…


Interpol’s “A Fine Mess” EP: What is it and is it good?

Part one will also be written before the rest of the EP has been released while part two will be a full review of the five-track EP.   Part One: The Singles In preparation for the release of the EP Interpol has dropped two singles, “The Weekend” and “Fine Mess”. “Fine Mess” was the first of the two which hit Spotify and other outlets on Jan 30, 2019, with “The Weekend” being released on March 28.

Anthem vs. The Division 2: What Anthem Should Have Been and Why The Division Succeeds

     On February 22nd, 2019, the game development company, Bioware, released the game Anthem. Anthem had so much hype built up so everyone expected it to be an amazing game. But when the player base actually got to play the game, Bioware received some very unwelcome feedback. All the talk about Anthem being a good game had evaporated. Everybody hated the game; Anthem was not what was expected at all. The game has gone downhill, and talk about the game has ended, because the hype about Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 was beginning. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is a game made by the game development company, Ubisoft. Ubisoft is widely known for games such as Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, and Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands. Tom Clancy’s The Division 2 is the sequel to the popular game by Ubisoft, The Division. The Division 2, which released on March 15th,…


Vampire Weekend “SunFlower” Review

Honestly, I have never heard of Vampire Weekend, so this is going to be a pretty unbiased review in the sense that I have no previous experience with their music or the band as people. I will be reviewing the music video along with the song. First, the music video. The entire video is split in two, with a black line separating two videos that occasionally split into four, or combine into one in sync with the music. The videos are often the same video, just edited or cut in ways so their usually showing something different than the other, such as a different angle of something happening, making it pretty interesting to watch at first. All of the music video is lit in a sort of orange and brown tone, and set around what seems to be a small market/restaurant. The video doesn’t seem to follow any consistent story,…

Should You Watch Hunter X Hunter Before Netflix Removes It?

Hunter X Hunter is a show on Netflix you may not have heard of. It did not get very popular while it was included in the Netflix library; this is why Netflix got rid of it. Just recently Netflix added Hunter X Hunter back and I suggest trying it out. Hunter X Hunter is a great show with believable characters, great story, lots of funny moments, as well as some intense fights. I loved this show while it was on Netflix. I would watch it every night. I knew every theme song from every season. As you can probably tell I loved this show. When Netflix removed it from the library I was extremely sad, but now that it is back I can enjoy it once more, and I suggest you do the same before it is removed again. The story is set in a world where there are people…


The Cafeteria’s Croissant Crisis

English muffins and breakfast sandwiches- the two don’t mix right, but when one of the only breakfast options at Friends Central is to get an English muffin breakfast sandwich, a lot of people are forced into getting this crumbly mess.  But there’s a catch! Seemingly randomly, one walks into the cafeteria, and in place of the bad muffins are perfectly baked croissants with the normal egg, cheese, bacon or sausage in between them. We have decided to investigate this strange phenomenon and get to the bottom of why the school can’t just have croissant breakfast sandwiches every day, instead of these horrible English muffins.   We started our investigation by asking a cafeteria staffer about a possible croissant schedule. From this questioning, we were able to get a complete breakfast sandwich bread weekly schedule. The results on the schedule shocked us.   Monday- Biscuit Tuesday- English Muffin Wednesday- Biscuit Thursday-…
