'Detroit' Gets Re-Release: Why You Should Watch It

The film 'Detroit' just got a re-release date and this is why you need to see this incredible film.

'Detroit' Gets Re-Release: Why You Should Watch It

Early in August, the film Detroit was released nationwide. I went to see it the week it came out with my brother and it instantly became my favorite film of the year. However, it didn't do incredibly well in the box office which surprises me because it has such a powerful story.

Ahead of award season, the Kathryn Bigelow directed film will be re-released in select theaters in December. It will be available in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Palm Springs, Maui, and Aspen. So, if you live near or in these areas, I highly recommend giving this one a watch.

Detroit tells a story of a group of young people during the Detroit riots in 1967. After a starter pistol was fired inside the Algiers Motel, a siege was made by the Michigan State Police and the Michigan Army National Guard. Through the majority of the film, we see the violent and cruel interrogations that these young men and women were put through and the scars left by them.

This film is a must see as it is incredibly important and relevant today. Not only are there phenomenal performances by the cast, this film is truly spine-chilling. The story is on thing, but the themes overall are what make this film very unique. It's real, raw, emotional, and vulgar. When I saw this film for the first time back in August, I was truly frightened by every aspect of it. It's something I can't really explain without sounding confusing. Never in my life has a movie made me feel like I was there, in person, witnessing the horrible and sickening events that occurred that horror of a night. I hope this film incites change.

Detroit will be re-released on December 1st and will be available digitally on November 28th. The film can also be purchased on Blu-ray and DVD December 12th.

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.

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.
