I bought Sid Meier’s new empire simulator last week to see if it lives up to the hype. “Civilization VI” and decided to play one game in order to see how it compares to all the hype that it has been receiving. When I finally decide to play as Gorgo, the Queen of Sparta, Sean Bean’s medieval voice suddenly starts talking to me, setting the expectations for my success in the game rather high. Brimming...

Leonardo DiCaprio’s latest film, the “Before the Flood,” attempts to rejuvenate the discussion of climate change among popular audiences by documenting DiCaprio’s own work to reduce the effects of climate change. I recently had the chance to spend an hour and a half of my time watching the free-to-view National Geographic documentary.

“Doctor Strange” is Marvel Studio’s latest release, and as such, gives the superhero movie fan base what they were looking for as the next part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe timeline, as well as a well-made film adaptation of a great comic. While watching “Doctor Strange” this past weekend, I was immediately reminded of the first “Iron Man” movie that came out only eight years ago.

The first look from Nintendo at their new gaming platform, the Nintendo Switch, promises a chance for gamers to return to their couches and rediscover local multiplayer gaming. It’s been a while since people consistently played the same videogame, in the same room, on the same TV, while sitting on the same piece of furniture! People could ruthlessly taunt each other and get away with it because ten seconds later someone else would sit down,...

HBO’s latest original production, “Westworld,” has entered the mass pool of active television shows. However, after only three episodes “” four by the time this article is published “” it has already made a splash bigger than most shows we’ve seen so far. But what is it about? Well, if the name sounds familiar, it’s because Michael Crichton’s 1973 film with the same title inspired the new series. Although it’s still early in the show,...

In 2006, “Planet Earth” made its debut on BBC One. Ten years later, the BBC Earth YouTube channel has released a trailer for “Planet Earth II,” taking us back into one of the most significant nature documentaries ever.   The new title will include a narration by the man, the myth, the legend, Sir David Attenborough, the same voice of the original series.

Millennials are growing older and beginning to age out of their prime college years, making way for the next generation of young adults as they try to impress themselves on the world. As an up and coming generation, we are just now getting to define ourselves, but other, somehow older people have beaten us to the name game. According to Wikipedia, people born somewhere in the middle of the 1990s all the way through the...

How do we define our generation? Will we be defined by our great technological advancements and innovations? Will we be remembered for our success in our enterprise to end world hunger and bring worldwide peace? Or will we be held back by a reputation for horrendous parking?
