This year has already seen one of the biggest superhero movies ever, “Black Panther”, hit the screen and smash multiple records. The film has already made over $1.3 billion dollars and had one of the biggest opening weekends to date. But the barrage of blockbuster movies doesn’t stop there: the new “Avengers” film is coming out this Friday and on May 25, the newest “Star Wars” film “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” will be diluting movie-goer’s summer movie...

Senior music major John Morgan has been creating music at Trinity University since his sophomore year. When he lived in Thomas, Morgan created his first EP, “Quiet Hours,” in 2016. He used his friend’s equipment and some of KRTU’s equipment to create the album while the quiet hours kept him holed up in his dorm. “I was just stuck in my dorm, passing the time, and I had been listening to Alex G, a friend of mine....

When senior Mackenzie Hill set out to work on her communication capstone project last semester, she only knew that she wanted to educate others about the art world. Hill hardly could have known then that her documentary “Lady Based,” an exploration of gender in the San Antonio art community, would become an award-winning short film. As Hill started to interview artists in the community, she began to see that there was more she needed to...

I was hesitant when I first read the reviews of “Black Panther.” I knew people would like it, but I wanted this movie to be loved; I wanted the actors and directors involved to get it right and for the end product to be a wonderful, adored superhero film. Thankfully, writer and director Ryan Coogler and his all-star cast of actors assuaged all my fears and created exactly what they wanted — a visually vibrant and rich...

Planning an event that over a third of Trinity University will, hopefully, attend is a daunting task. It requires months of organization and dozens of moving pieces all working perfectly together. This also means that a dozen uncontrollable circumstances must fall into place perfectly: The weather, the artist performing well, attendance — things that the Student Programming Board (SPB) has almost no control over. At both concerts I have been to, the board has done an...

With a population of 1.47 million people, San Antonio is the seventh largest city in the United States. San Antonio’s size and active population make it a prime city for a new venue to expand and grow, and the Big-Little Comedy Fest is trying to place San Antonio on the map for comedy and improv. Jackson Beach, a Trinity junior, works as the press secretary for Bexar Stage, where the Big-Little Fest will be held...

Lil Pump is a disease within the rap genre. What started in the 1970s in the streets of New York City has now turned into a 17-year-old kid from Miami, Florida saying “Gucci gang” 54 times in a two-minute song and having it go platinum in less than a year. Rap has evolved since its earliest days, but the roots of rap, and its ability to carry meaning and purpose, are still alive and well...

It’s that time of year again. Actors and actresses wearing their finest statement pieces, and throngs of film buffs huddling around their screens to see if their picks get picked. You know what I’m talking about: awards season. And of all of the awards, the Oscars surely reign as king. Lately though, the academy’s authority has come into question. Does an academy award add anything to a film, or should they even be considered legitimate?...
