‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’: a reflection with my Mexican-American mother

By Sofia Psolka KTSW Contributor *Spoiler Warning*     Earlier this year, I went to go see A24’s dadaist, multi-verse movie “Everything Everywhere All at Once." I had seen a few nondescript trailers alluding to a story centering on a Chinese-American family capable of inter-dimensional travel.

There was no doubt this restaurant would be a hit since the owner, Gabriela Bucio, owns other popular places, such as Taquero Mucho, Revival Coffee, and Gabriela's Downtown.  The […]

A Disappointing Review of Antebellum

By Timia CobbWeb Content Assistant Manager In the wake of black horror films such as “Get Out”, “Ma”, “US” and more, I was ecstatic when I first saw “Antebellum’s” trailer last summer. It felt like a movie that would hit close to home by speaking on issues such as racism and conflicts in the black community. However, “Antebellum” turned out to be an hour and a half film filled to […]
