Featured Flick: Date Night

Tina Fey and Steve Carell are a boring married couple that, on a Mark Ruffalo fear-inspired whim, goes to a restaurant, steals someone's reservation and ends up being chased by crooked cops.

Featured flick: Clash of the Titans

The evil runt twin of the movie "300" and "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief" got together and made a baby named "Clash of the Titans." It is also an example of why Hollywood's sudden obsession with the quick, easy and cheap version of 3D will fail miserably if studios apply the method to every movie they shove out into theaters. Aside from being fuzzy and hard to follow with the glasses on, there are plenty of plainly bizarre problems with this Perseus rip-off/remake of the 1981 film of the same name that should have made someone at the production studio shelve this thing. Basically, Perseus is the son of Zeus who goes to slay Hades after he kills Perseus's family.

Step contest raises cultural awareness

While both Pi Beta Phi and Kappa Kappa Gamma sororities placed during the stepping competition on Friday night, the Delta Delta Delta sorority's leap-frog blindfold routine earned them the title as champion of Stepping 101.

Featured Flick: How to Train Your Dragon

So here's the deal: I'm still a kid at heart. The rest of the University of Richmond student population could claim they wanted to grow up, be mature, yada-yada, and I would still say that I love cartoons, love these new CGI animated movies, and that I especially love "How to Train Your Dragon." In the film, a scrawny viking boy named Hiccup, voiced by Jay Baruchel, the high-pitched guy from "Knocked Up," befriends a dragon.

Featured Flick: Repo Men

Life is meaningless. The world is a conglomerated mess where make-me-buy-what-I-don't-need-and-can't-afford advertising is inescapable - a doubly wrinkled brain that is too complex to be blissful - and people are basically bags of meat with sob stories.

Featured Flick: The Crazies

Ogden Marsh, Iowa, is a calm, idyllic farm town. The main street wanders off into the cornfields, barely reaching the quaint, burnable farmhouses that are too far away from each other to offer a sense of community in trying zombie times.
