Embers takes place in a dystopian future in which a neurological disease makes citizens forget almost everything about society. The film follows several people’s lives as they try to create connections and find meaning in life, even though they have forgotten nearly everything they knew.
A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away… John Swartz was an Ohio University student studying media and film. Now, he is working in the industry and just co-produced a fan favorite, Star Wars: Episode VII — The Force Awakens. But his opportunity with Lucas Films wasn’t just handed to him. Swartz spoke to students on Tuesday, March 15, via Skype, not only about the hard work that goes into making movies, but that also goes into getting into the film industry.
The recent passing of legendary musical hero David Bowie and wise Hogwarts professor Alan Rickman (aka Professor Snape) has gotten us thinking about our favorite stars, and why we never want to live without them. In tribute to two great, irreplaceable careers, we made a list of eight more that we hope continue for many years to come.

FANGLE’s writers banded together to view and review as many films at the Athens Film Festival as possible. We laughed and we cried (not really), but we did have a great time learning more about film, meeting directors and experiencing new movies. So, without further ado, here is our list of the best and worst movies of this year’s 42nd annual film festival at The Athena Cinema.

Amidst the many films I had the pleasure of seeing at this year’s Cleveland Film Festival, none struck me so much as Daniel Barber’s The Keeping Room. While there were numerous amazing films there and too many to possibly see in one weekend, out of the ones I saw, The Keeping Room stuck in the throats of the audience. It was easy to look around and see the horrified, teary-eyed faces in the audience and instantly know that this film was having the sort of impact that more movies should.

One of the year’s most highly anticipated movies opened this past Friday just in time for Valentine’s Day. Fifty Shades of Grey, adapted from the best-selling series by E.L. James, had a dominating weekend at the box office. According to an article from Time, the movie made $94.4 million in its opening weekend.

For decades, the silver screen was rarely aglow with powerful females. Ladies took to the limelight as a pretty face, the dim-witted distraction for her heroic male counterpart. But who says women can’t be sexy and badass? Continue reading The Silver Screen is Turning Pink→
As the temperature starts to drop, so does motivation to get out of the house. Winter can be tough in a small college town when all there is to do on the weekends is go drink at the bars. Yeah, that’s probably what most college students are going to do anyway, but I am here to help with some ideas on what to do when it’s just way too cold.
Cards Against Humanity
It’s referred to as the card game for horrible people, or better known as the adult version of Apples to Apples. It’s a fun game to play with friends that’ll make you laugh until your sides hurt. Play it by its original rules or make it into a fun drinking game (if you’re 21, of course). You can even download it for free online at cardsagainsthumanity.com.
