To say that “Frozen” is fantastic is an understatement.  To call it good is a crime against human dignity and creativity.  To call it a classic is the inevitable future as the film winds its way out of theaters and into humble homes everywhere. “Frozen”, Disney’s 53rd animated film, tell...

With the blockbuster success of the first installment of “The Hunger Games” franchise and trilogy, much was riding on today’s release of its sequel.

Music Review: Sleigh Bells new single “Bitter Rivals”

Nora Sanchez, staff artist and weekly wall editor

September 8, 2013

“Bitter Rivals”, Sleigh Bells’ first new release since their smash hit 2012 album Reign of Terror, starts off slow, with strums on an acoustic-sounding guitar.
