The Truth About The Snowman

Trust me, the movie was terrible

The Truth About The Snowman

Usually every week, me and my good friend, Alex, go to the theater to see a movie. We have seen films from Beauty and the Beast to Dunkirk to It. We really do not have a preference, but we both share a love for horror. We love the jump scares, but Alex does not like when I scream at each and every one of them. Even though I scream a lot, I love the horror motif of scary movies.

With our love for scary movies in mind, one weekend, my friend and I decided to see The Snowman. We first heard of this winter thriller while we saw It in theaters. The film then looked great. The trailer gave the feel that the film would be filled with horror and suspense.

However, when we saw the film, we were very disappointed. For one, the film took five ever to progress. I felt like I was sitting in the movie theater watching a film as long as Titanic but not nearly as high in cinematic qualityIt has been a month since I saw this travesty of a movie, and I am still salty for it stealing money out of my pocket.

Maybe I would not be as upset if I was warned via previews before seeing it. It was targeted to other horror films I was seeing. Why put a misleading preview before an actually good scary movie.

Please, do yourselves a favor and never see this movie.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
