Newest Batman Takes Flight

Published April 5, 2022

This is a Batman movie that’s aware of its own place within pop culture, it does display the comic book character’s lore, only to portray it in a way that’s both substantial and daring. This script was set up for the hero to question his history as well as confront his purpose

Altogether, the movie was by far one of the best depictions of the loved Marvel comic. The pacing and plot were both exceptional, making you engaged throughout the movie. The darker PG- 13 rated material pushes Holland to burning, emotional places. His eyes flicker with the difficult moral decisions. This is what I liked most about the movie, as Holland is an amazing actor. He’s able to get the audience to either cry or laugh with him, making me thoroughly enjoy watching the character development. Another part that was my favorite was action sequences which felt more real than the previous films.

At the start of the movie, we meet Callie (Carrie Coon), a single mother trying to make ends meet. Her children Phoebe (Mckenna Grace), a kid genius and Phoebe’s older brother Trevor (Finn Wolfhard), who wanted to fit in with the crowd. Their mom moved them to a run down house that their absent grandfather used to own. While adjusting to living in a new environment, Phoebe discovered the basement of her estranged late grandfather, linking her and her family to the original Ghostbusters and their legacy. This discovery sets off a chain of events that lead to all hell breaking loose… literally. Now, it is their job to stop the forces of evil from escaping into the living world. There was a noticeable amount of comedy and a light hearted vibe despite the action-packed plot.

Cheer Preps For State

Published January 27, 2022

“It’s nice that I’m a senior because I got to experience cheer my sophomore year, a completely normal season. I would say it definitely affected football, with wearing masks and just like having to be positive with all the changes and adapting guidelines, as well as taking COVID tests constantly and we don’t get live awards in our competitions which is kind of heart breaking because it’s the best part of competition, "Johnston said. 

A Message From a Senior Viking

A Message From a Senior Viking

Published December 16, 2021

Wherever the Viks travelled... we were right behind, ready to cheer them on. Friends would carpool away games and show up early to set up decorations for home games.  Our high school football games brought us together. We wanted to show up to have a blast, to represent Puyallup with an incredible school spirit. It was so special to be able to see our community—Viking's past, present and future—come together to cheer for the success of their peers, creating memories I will never forget.
