Well, the long awaited and annual update to Apple’s newest iDevice, the iPhone, is here. The iPhone 5 is the newest iteration to Apple’s mobile phone line up and is the 6th generation phone in Apple’s iPhone series. What makes this device so different and unique from the rest, and does it matter to you? Find out more from the brief overview below.
Blissful childhood memories, concerned families, secrets behind closed doors, a murder case, and a whole lot of military men wanting to cover it all up. This semester Concordia’s Theater Department is producing Innocence Lost, by Beverley Cooper. The youngest man to ever be convicted of murder and sentenced to death in Canada is the basis for the play. This semester’s main stage production is based on the real life, tragic tale of Steven Truscott and Lynne Harper. The audience is guided through the story by the main character Sarah, a young girl who went to school with the accused and the victim. Sarah will be played by the lovely and talented, Lauren Tamke. She will take us into the world of the everyday people who surrounded the main court case. Usually with sensitive and shocking murder trials such as this one, the media focuses heavily on the court drama and the serving of justice. But what about the family and friends who are involved? Innocence Lost portrays intimate conversations portraying what Steven’s parents had to endure while their fourteen year old son was tried for murder, what classmates thought of this scary situation, and how awful it was for Lynne’s family to lose a child. This will be an interesting and entertaining show for all but it could be especially interesting for Psychology students who love to delve into the mind of others.
If you missed out on Game’s Night movie Maverick, never fear! Here is a brief review about said classic western poker movie. If you are a fan of Mel Gibson or Jodie Foster you should not miss out on this movie. Seriously, it is pretty good and I don’t even like the western theme.
Maverick follows the story of Bret Maverick (Mel Gibson), a smooth talking silver-tongued gambler who is trying to con his way into a Winner Takes All poker tournament. Along the way he befriends a few people including the sexy thief Annabelle Bransford (Jodie Foster) and a law abiding marshal by the name of Zane Cooper (James Garner). Going through his ups and downs and his twists of luck, Bret must find a way to get into the poker tournament and win with his life intact.
If you were at school during Thunderstorm Week, then you likely saw students playing an assortment of video games and board games. That is just a brief introduction to the Games Night at Concordia—a night where the students and faculty members of Concordia take a break from their school work to socialize, watch movies, and play games in the middle of Tegler. With the huge success Games Night last year, it only feels right to continue the momentum into the 2012/13 school year.
With no signs of any slowing down, VP Internal John Anderson plans to continue Games Night by planning a poker-themed Games Night coming up on September 21, 2012. Not only will he be showing the 1994 classic poker movie Maverick, starring Mel Gibson and Jodie Foster, but John is also planning to set up a friendly poker tournament in Tegler Hall that is open to all participants with prizes going to the top players.
I think everyone has seen Marvel’s The Avengers: the big movie that debuted this summer in North America with an astonishing $200.1 million opening. Obviously the folks over at Marvel did something right with this ultimate superhero mash up. So what did I think of it? I think it is pretty self-explanatory but let’s get in the deep of it, shall we? Spoilers inside so be warned.
