After fifteen years, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon
has become a cinematic classic, winning four Academy Awards in cinematography, music, sound direction, and as a foreign language film. A sequel to Crouching Tiger should then aim to exceed our expectations, taking us in places we haven't been, improving upon the past, and honoring the work done before. Unfortunately, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon: Sword of Destiny
failed to capture the same voice, tone, feel, and artistic vision of the original, reducing...
Governor Mark Dayton signed the Surly Bill into law back in 2011. The new bill created an exception in Minnesota’s aging “Three-Tier System of Liquor Regulation” which allowed brewers and beer entrepreneurs to directly satisfy a growing demand for craft beer spurring economic and community growth in Minneapolis/St. Paul.
“Three-Tier System of Liquor Regulation” initiated after the repeal of prohibition decades ago was designed to separate the roles of liquor manufacturers, distributors, and retailers. This system was put in place for a variety of reasons which include denying access to minors, limiting...
is one of the more unique horror films you’ll ever see. That’s meant as an endorsement, but it could just as easily serve as a warning. It’s become increasingly clear over the last year, with the rise of indie horror sensations like It Follows

With Donald Trump's recent second primary win in South Carolina, taking 44 delegates, and giving him a commanding lead
over the other candidates, he solidified himself as the front-runner for the Republican party and the one to beat in future primaries and caucuses. Marco Rubio placed second
and is gaining momentum while Jeb Bush has bowed out. Hillary Clinton, on the Democratic side,...
Let’s debunk the carbohydrate misconception! Does everyone remember about 10 years ago the big Atkins push? This was an epitome (in its initial presentation at that time) of an imbalanced, unsustainable eating program. Thankfully, they have since revised their program to not focus on eating meat in place of all of your carbohydrates. The phase then was to highlight our deficiency in protein.
We are still in a similar highlight in the recent push for receiving our protein source through meal replacements. We must...!--more-->
Directed by Tim Miller and written by Rhett Reese and Paul Wernick, Deadpool
, on paper, should have been a major failure. With a green director, an R rating, the February release, and years of production problems and delays, it was guaranteed a box office flop -- but it beat the odds and provided a satisfying superhero comedy with plenty of heart, action, and violence. Comic book fans need not worry. Deadpool
lived up to his name and added a few chimichangas to the order.

As has become a common theme in Minnesota sports recently, Timberwolves fans didn't have much to cheer about last season. The hapless Wolves endured one of the least productive regular seasons in the team's 26-year history, winning just 16 games while missing the playoffs for the 11th straight year.
One bright spot for the Wolves was Zach LaVine. The rookie out of UCLA showed flashes of promise on the court during the regular season while filling in at starting point guard for the oft-injured Ricky Rubio. He saved his best tricks for All-Star Weekend however, winning the 2015 NBA Dunk contest with a performance...
The normally bone chilling Minnesota was really “Feeling the Bern” on Tuesday, January 26th as Bernie Sanders rode into Minnesota to speak in front of thousands of Minnesotans in Duluth and St. Paul. Excited attendees braved turbulent masses of people and the cruel Minnesota gusts outside the RiverCentre in Downtown St. Paul to catch a glimpse or hear a word from the Vermont Senator.
The rally illustrated that heaps upon heaps of people are really excited about Bernie Sanders running for president. So excited in fact that they waited in heavy traffic, cold winds and long confusing lines all the...!--more-->
Fans of the Coen brothers have come to expect two kinds of releases from the movies’ most irascible duo, as distinct as the musicals, westerns, and prestige pictures that dominated the old Hollywood studio system. There are the major
Coens films, like Barton Fink
, and No Country for Old Men
; boundary-pushing, serious-minded efforts that have made them one of the most respected forces in filmmaking. On the other side are minor
efforts, like The Hudsucker Proxy
, The Big Lebowski
, and Burn After Reading
: typically silly comedies that refer back to the screwballs...
