A Year to Watch Out For: The Most Anticipated Movies of 2019

By Noah Phillips, ’21

2018 was a (mostly) fantastic year for movies. While there were flops like Tyler Perry’s “Acrimony” and “Fifty Shades Freed”, there were also fantastic films like “Incredibles 2,” “Avengers: Infinity War,” Alex Garland’s “Annihilation,” and Wes Anderson’s “Isle of Dogs.” But as 2018 is in its final months, I decided to look at all the films we can look forward to next year to see if they can hold up to what 2018 had to offer, and these are the top 10 anticipated films of 2019.

#10: The New Mutants

The New Mutants comes out on Aug. 2.

As the X-Men are potentially nearing the end of their time at 21st Century Fox because of a possible merger with Disney, Fox is giving the franchise one last hurrah with “The New Mutants”. Directed by Josh Boone (director of “The Fault In Our Stars”), the film follows young mutants Magik, Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Sunspot, and Mirage as they try to escape a Mutant mental hospital. The film is said to have a horror tone, something new to the superhero genre, but we’ll just have to wait until Aug. 2 to see just how scary it might be.

Boba was founded by Zach Pratt, a graduate of the Green Ladle Culinary Program, and his life partner, Keshia Thanephonesy. Boba’s menu is a blend of both of their family origins, spanning from Southeast Asian to Franco-American cuisine. Since its founding in 2015, Boba has added many vegetarian and gluten free options to their menu to make it more inclusive of those with dietary restrictions. Some of their most popular menu items are Pho, Dumplings, and many different flavors of bubble tea.


Echo Games Review #1 Megaman!

by Tristan Lane, ’18

Welcome to the Echo Games review. In honor of Megaman 11 coming out later this year, I’m going to talk about the original Megaman series, one of my personal favorite game franchises. As an example of how popular Megaman has become, within 30 years since the original game, there are 103 games released, including spin-offs. The only series with more games than him is Mario.
