"Halloween Ends" Didn't Feel Like A "Halloween" Movie

It was pretty disappointing.

"Halloween Ends" Didn't Feel Like A "Halloween" Movie
I’m not saying it was bad, but they could’ve done a lot better. Since Halloween Kills only came out last year, I thought the final installment would pick up where it left off. One last epic face-off between Laurie and Michael resulting in the Myers’ house burning down with the killer inside it. Or even a reveal that it was all in Michael’s head (which would explain why he seemingly couldn’t die). Instead, they gave Michael Myers a protégé?

The classic horror villain didn’t even make an appearance until halfway through the movie. Honestly, the whole thing leaned more on the psychological end of the horror spectrum, rather than the slasher side we’re accustomed to with Halloween movies. You almost feel bad for Corey and his bad luck spiral that started with a prank gone horribly wrong. Gradually it becomes obvious that something’s been switched off inside him. By the movie’s end, given that he’s been taking lessons from Michael, I’m not convinced Corey’s dead.

On to the Michael of it all, which to me was the best part of this. It hasn’t been confirmed whether he is or isn’t in fact supernatural, but unless the whole thing is in his head (seemingly not the case), it’s most likely that he is. With everything he’s previously survived and the way is hand was literally cut in half while he proceeded to choke Laurie at full strength, it makes no sense otherwise. We may never get a complete answer to that mystery, but I at least hoped there would be more of a focus on it.

All in all it wasn’t the worst way to end the series, but not very satisfying (except for the part where Michael got incinerated) for anticipating fans. It had the potential to be epic, especially with the buildup, but failed miserably.

Holidays With A Small Family

I wouldn't trade what we have for the world.

Matt Johnsn

When I was a kid I always went to my grandparents house whenever we celebrated any sort of holiday. We were a decently sized family and it was always a blessing to be in their house and surrounded by love during the holiday season. However, that all changed when my grandfather passed away and my grandmother was diagnosed with Alzheimer's. The family then began to drift apart and life went on, and we ended up all celebrating our own holidays with other family members.

Safe Spaces Or Regressive Spaces?

Turns out shielding yourself from ideas can be detrimental to your ability to learn


College is a place for people who want to learn. That is the primary function of any academic institution. Its purpose is not to coddle us, nor should the community always be in agreement with us. We are supposed to surround ourselves with a variety of viewpoints that challenge us to learn, not the same repetitive points of view that make us happy.

Black Friday is back to being Black Friday

This year, malls are standing up against Black Friday beginning on Thanksgiving. Doors won't be opening until Friday morning.


Last week my twitter feed was full of exclamations of how excited people were that our local mall, Westmoreland Mall would be closed on Thanksgiving Day this year. For those who work during the busy holiday days and hours, a celebration was in order. For the die-hard deal finders and shoppers though, they didn’t seem very happy.

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

There's been a recent boom in the popularity of vintage style looks and up-cycling thrifted finds to sell at, usually, an outrageous price. Is this ethical? Or does it defeat the whole purpose of thrifting in the first place?

Is Thrift Shopping *Actually* Ethical?

One day, I was scrolling through Twitter and came across a tweet about upper-middle-class class people thrift shopping. I personally was against the up cycling/re-selling trend because I thought it to be greedy. Then, I began to see more and more tweets, and then stated to see ones about those who buy thrifted, name brand items and sell them for what they're actually worth instead of the very low price they got them for.
