Avengers and Captain Marvel Trailers Are Here!

The new Avengers and Captain Marvel trailers came out during the Superbowl commercials. I am going to be breaking down each of the trailers scene by scene.   Let’s start off with the Avengers trailer. The opening scene is just flicking through the whole MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), and then it cuts to the famous Marvel Logo. It cuts to three different shots of New York city. They filmed the Citi Field, The Statue Of Liberty, and a long shot. It cuts to a scene of a rehab group and Captain America saying, “Some people move on, but not us.” Then there are different shots of every Avenger getting ready for the final battle.  This movie sees the return of Ant Man. People have been going crazy over this because the ending of Ant Man and the Wasp, he was stuck in the quantum realm. This sequence of events ends…

Spider-Man for PS4

WARNING: BIG SPOILERS At Sony’s E3 Conference in 2017, they released the first gameplay for their new game Spider-Man. Spider-Man was then released for gold members on July 30th, 2018 and released for all users on September 7th, 2018. When this game was released, people were giving it amazing reviews; some people even went on to say, “It is a perfect game.” On the website Metacritic, Spider-Man was given an 8.7/10, IGN gave it an 8.7/10, Google Users gave the game a 9.5/10, and GameSpot gave it a 9/10.   Gameplay: First of all, the gameplay in this game is excellent. The best part (in my opinion) is the web-slinging. It is very realistic and has a great noise. Another part is the fighting animation. Spidey is kind of like a glass cannon: he does a lot of damage but is very weak. It’s like he dies in two hits….


Daredevil Season 3 Review

Warning: CONTAINS SPOILERS Daredevil is one of the best showS ever to be created. The season has a 93% Rotten Tomatoes score, which is well deserved. This show is part of the MCU (Marvel Cinematic Universe), which means it is in the same universe as Spider-Man, Iron Man and basically everyone you see in the Marvel movies. Ok, now that the facts are out of the way, time to get on to the review. So, I just finished Daredevil season 3 and it was a really good show. The entire season is based around the storyline of “Born Again” written by Frank Miller. The writers for the show did change the story from the comic a little bit but it worked out pretty well. Pretty much the biggest part that they changed about it is that they told Karen Page’s backstory like it was at the end of her story. I highly…


Echo Hill 2018

ECHO HILL was an experience some people enjoyed less than others, and some people loved it. There’s a not-so-fine line between Echo Hill and home, and crossing that line is a bold move. But really, let’s venture in depth, on everyone’s opinions on some of the different activities and classes at Echo Hill, and the enjoyment they had to offer. These are opinions from 7th grade students and teachers. SCANOEING MR.CHAGAN – “Mr. Barry’s favorite class is probably the scanoeing…that’s not my favorite.” SPENCER KIM – “Falling into the swamps was not fun, and the bugs: not good.” JAMES PENDRAK – “I did enjoy scanoeing ’cause I’ve always been familiar with canoeing and kayaking and being in a boat and paddling with others and I also thought the fact that there were three canoes combined, I thought that was really cool.” BAY STUDIES THEO SCHENK – “Well, I went on…


The Sixth Grade Derivative Project

For the last couple weeks, the sixth grade has been working on the biggest project of the sixth grade year. We had been given a word in Latin ( example Sonus – Sound) to study, and find words that derive from it, in different languages. For 3 days we worked on finding the derivatives of the Latin word we were given. After that, we started to map out the project idea for the biggest part of the project. A few days after that, we had to share our ideas with our classmates and they had to give feedback. Than the building process began, we got our materials and started building. We had 11 school days to build our projects, one of the days was a full day of only working on our derivative project. The presentation was in Room 10, we set up tables along the perimeter of Room 10….
