OPINION: Greatest love story of all time

OPINION: Greatest love story of all time Film Review By Jorge EspinozaSocial Media Co-ManagerPublished Tuesday, April 2, 2024 “You’re losing me to a life of my own,” says the lead character of Sofia Coppola’s Priscilla, Priscilla Presley.  Adapted from Priscilla Presley’s memoir Elvis and Me, Coppola gives the audience a look into the tragic romance of a young girl falling out of love with an American rock legend and falling in love with a life of independence.

OPINION: ‘Spring Breakers’ a misunderstood film

OPINION: Spring Breakers a misunderstood film Movie Review By Camila MendezBridge Staff WriterPublished Thursday, March 7, 2024 “Live life to the fullest … Spring Breeeeeeaaaaaak ... Spriiiiiing Breaaaaaak forevaaa,” Alien (James Franco) yelled. I envision that Harmony Korine’s film Spring Breakers will be well-known in the future. Even if you’re unfamiliar with the movie, you might recall when it was deemed a “Disney Girls Gone Wild!” projection. This is solely because Selena Gomez and Vanessa Hudgens, some of Disney’s proteges, star in this crime thriller. If you consider yourself a movie connoisseur, it’s by A24 … another reason to see it if you haven’t. Camila Mendez This film is about four women, college friends, who urgently decide to get out of town and experience...
