Good ideas, bad movies.

7 Movies That Should Have Been Good But Weren't

Have you ever seen a preview for a movie and instantly put the release date in your phone calendar? The movie just looked so good! You wish that it would come out now, and not in a year and a half.

Have you ever waited a year and a half for a movie to be released and walked out of the theater disappointed because the movie, well...sucked? Unfortunately, many movies do not live up to our expectations.

Here is a list of seven movies that should have been good, but they just, well....weren't.

1. "The Purge"

"The Purge" had such a great, freaky and original plot line: one day a year when all crime would become legal. Unfortunately, the story line ended up being bland and predictable.

2. "The Scorch Trials"

"The Scorch Trials" is the sequel to the popular book and movie "The Maze Runner." With the book series being so popular, the movies had the potential to be as big as Twilight and The Hunger Games series. Unfortunately, the director chose to stray away from the book completely, and the movie suffered big time.

3. "Minions"

Let's face, the minions were our favorite part of "Despicable Me." A whole movie about these funny, yellow creatures sounded like it would be worth the $11 ticket and $8 popcorn. Unfortunately, the movie was incredibly cheesy, and not as funny as expected.

4. "Chernobyl Diaries"

"The Chernobyl Diaries" was such a great concept, but a terrible film. The idea of a group of people going back to an abandoned city where there was once a nuclear disaster only to realize that they are not alone is so suspenseful! Unfortunately, the film was a dud...

5. "10 Cloverfield Lane"

"10 Cloverfield Lane" had an absolutely brilliant idea behind it, with the plot being about a girl who wakes up in a man's underground shelter after a car crash. The movie left many fans, including myself, wondering what was going on the entire time. Unfortunately, the movie was a tad slow and the ending ruined the whole thing. Different ending=fantastic movie.

6. "Inside Out"

This animated Disney movie was definitely a clever flick, but in my opinion did not live up to expectations. The idea of the main characters being emotions inside of a little girl's head is very original and unlike any other movie, but the concept ended up being better than the movie.

7. "Mama"

This horror film had one of the creepiest trailers. The previews showed two small girls abandoned in a cabin who call an invisible entity "mama." Unfortunately, the movie was not actually that creepy, and the graphics in the end completely ruined the whole thing.

Some ideas are just better in theory, I guess. I know that we are all waiting for the new "Beauty and the Beast" movie in 2017, so hopefully that one does not end up on a list similar to this one.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
