Wrapping up Warped Tour
by Alizay Chavez '21
Sum 41, Simple Plan. MxPx, New Found Glory, and Good Charlotte.” There are so many bands who had the chance to perform on the Vans Warped Tour stage.
Lyman got to witness the birth of the emo culture with bands like, “Thrice, Thursday, The Used, Taking Back Sunday, The Starting Line, Motion City Soundtrack and Jimmy Eats World.” Lyman also said that “Warped Tour helped launch the careers of Fall Out Boy, My Chemical Romance, and Avenged Sevenfold.” These bands are pretty famous now. According to Lyman he has seen over a thousand bands perform over the last 23 summers. He hopes that Warped Tour will continue to inspire creativity and ambition. He is also proud of the community he has created and wanted to thank all the people who come out each year. He also wanted to thank the amazing crew has worked hard over the years.

Movie Review: Ragnarok
by Rocco Addington '20
I found this movie to be such a filler movie. This movie just tells you what's happening with Hulk and Thor while a civil war going on. Now this isn't a spoiler but if you didn't watch the trailer and want the movie to be as shocking as possible skip to the next paragraph. If you haven’t left yet, good. So Thor’s hammer gets destroyed, big shocker right? Wrong if you guys have seen the behind the scenes on the upcoming movie Avengers Infinity War. In one of the screen shots what do you see? Thor’s freaking hammer!!! This is one of my complaints with the entire Marvel cinematic universe, they are no consequences. This just made all of the shocks in this movie pointless to me. But if you’re a casual watcher then this is no big deal, but if you’re a fan then this should be a huge disappointment.
Excluding spoilers, those were my biggest problems with the movie. Now, time to be more nit picky. During the fight scenes you can notice the drop in quality. It looked like a pre-rendered video game trailer and I wouldn't be talking about it if it didn't take me out of the action. Over all it is a great movie with some minor flaws, but that can be expected in every superhero movie. If you haven't seen it already, I recommend you do.
