UA cracks down on low GPAs






Students in a scholarship program at the UA may see more enforcement of GPA requirements from administration this semester. The Arizona Assurance Scholarship, created by former president Robert Shelton in 2008, provides funding to low-income students from Arizona so they can attend the UA. There are roughly 1,800 students currently enrolled who have received the scholarship. Michelle McKelvey, assistant director of Academic Success and Achievement, said that potential recipients are high school seniors who have earned a 3.0 in their first three years of high school and have been admitted to the UA. Once the scholarship is obtained, scholars receive funding to cover their tuition, mandatory fees, the cost of books and their first-year housing expenses. However, they must fulfill certain requirements to maintain funding. McKelvey said this includes completing 24 credits a year and maintaining a 2.0 GPA. McKelvey, who took over the program in April 2013, said that the GPA requirements for the scholarship were not strictly enforced in the past. She said this oversight could be attributed to a few things. “It was a new program and

Permanent dean of students appointed BY ETHAN MCSWEENEY The Daily Wildcat

The UA has named a permanent dean of students, a position that has been unfilled for the past year. Last week, Kendal Washington White was named the assistant vice president for Student Affairs and dean of students. She has served in the position in an interim role since January 2013. The announcement is the culmination of a year-long search to fill the position after Keith Humphrey left in January 2013. White said she initially did not apply for the position in the spring semester of 2013. When the UA was unable to find someone to fill the role, another search was initiated in the fall and White applied. “I applied for the position because … this position is the only dean position that is fully focused on students,” White said. The UA used a search consulting firm, Storbeck/ Pimentel & Associates, in its national search for a new dean of students, said Melissa Vito, senior vice president for student affairs and enrollment management. She said that she was not happy



Event to promote retailing diversity BY JORDAN FOWLER The Daily Wildcat


DEAN OF STUDENTS KENDAL WASHINGTON WHITE said she is looking forward to serving in her new leadership role with the UA. White assumed the role of Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs and Dean of Students earlier in February.

The UA Terry J. Lundgren Center for Retailing is celebrating diversity within the workplace with the first “Fitting in While Standing Out” Diversity Conference. The idea for this conference was developed last semester, when the center’s directors heard from both students and employers that everyone within the industry field could benefit from more education and exposure to diversity, said Abra McAndrew, the center’s assistant director of student leadership and development. McAndrew said she immediately began working with student ambassadors to put together a conference, the goal being to create opportunities that both students and employers could learn from. “Diversity is a tool to do things that have never been done before and to serve customers in a way that they’ve never been served before,” McAndrew said. The conference will open at 8

Self-esteem focused fair returns BY MEGHAN FERNANDEZ The Daily Wildcat

Campus club UA Body Smart is encouraging students to feel comfortable in their own skin. The club will host its second annual Body Smart Fair on the UA Mall this Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. to promote body image awareness. The Body Smart Fair is an event where several organizations at the UA and in the surrounding community gather to encourage self-esteem among students. Although the Body Smart Fair is only in its second year, Campus Health Service has been putting on an event for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week for

12 years. Last year, the fair was called Love Your Body Day and was mostly targeted towards women. This year, the name was changed to Body Smart to be more inclusive to all types of students, said Julie Sigler, a public health senior and intern at Body Smart. Sigler said that the main goal of the Body Smart Fair is to raise awareness about body image issues and show available resources to students. A variety of campus groups will have booths to give presentations relating to Body Smart’s goals. Pride Alliance will be one of the groups tabling during this event, featuring

Gemini (May 21-June 20) — Today is an 8 — Use your secret powers. Don’t be intimidated. Your emotions take a soft turn, and conditions seem unstable. Clean house. Re-arrange furniture for better use of space. Save money and watch a movie at home.

How do you feel about early morning classes? I have class at 9 a.m. every day. I definitely do not like it! Is 9 a.m. the earliest class you’ve had over the years? Yes. It is Italian .… There are all these activities to do and I know my teacher has a problem with trying to get people to participate because everyone is all tired and drowsy and nobody wants to. I definitely feel like that is a problem in that class.

Cancer (June 21-July 22) — Today is a 7 — Travel conditions improve this month with the Sun in Pisces, but surprises still lurk. Consider new developments. Make future plans and work out the itinerary. Schedule work and reservations carefully. Then enjoy the comforts of home.

Leo (July 23-Aug. 22) — Today is an 8 — Stay out of a risky investment. Focus on the numbers this month, with the Sun in Pisces. Get creative. Finish what you’ve started. The natives are restless. Discuss a theory, and wait a few days for action.

Would you prefer classes that run later into the night? Not too late, because I have had classes in the 5 to 6 p.m. range and that is almost too late. But I feel like maybe, because I have taken classes at 11 a.m. before. I think that is a good time, but not anything before that.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) — Today is a 9 — New information illuminates. For the next four weeks with the Sun in Pisces, grow partnerships stronger. Allow time to rest and regroup. Avoid expense. Listen to your intuition before choosing. The situation can be transformed.

Should the school start classes later than 9 a.m. in general? I feel like that would be a problem because some people like earlier classes. You cannot necessarily favor one kind of [person].

Why did you decide to take Italian in the morning this semester? Just because it fit into my schedule. I know sometimes the problem I have is when you want a later class, but then they get filled and you’re like, “Oh, 9 a.m. is the only one left, got to do that one!”

Libra (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) — Today is a 9 — Check orders for changes. More research may be required. You’re entering a philosophical and spiritual cycle. Work your own program with an optimistic view. Career takes priority this month, with the Sun in Pisces. Expand your network.

there was a potential lack of resources,” McKelvey said. McKelvey said that the GPAs of scholars are checked yearly, but at times they weren’t being followed up on if they didn’t meet the requirement. McKelvey added that it is important for the requirements of the scholarship to be enforced. “It holds the students accountable,” McKelvey said. Despite oversights, Alex Barré, third- and fourth-year scholars coordinator, said that students still lose funding every year by not fulfilling these requirements. In these cases, there is an appeals process for students who lose funding. Both Barré and McKelvey sit on the appeals committee. “[Students] submit an appeal that explains what particular requirement caused them to lose funding,” Barré said. “The appeals committee reviews that and then we’ll decide if somebody will be reinstated or if the initial decision will stand.” Derwin Begay, first- and second-year scholars coordinator, said that since McKelvey has taken over he has seen more enforcement of the GPA requirements. Begay works with freshmen and sophomores to meet the scholarship requirements. He says that in addition to this, ASA tries to help students and create a smooth transition for them from high school to college. Students are required to take certain courses and workshops to ensure their success. “It’s a wonderful program for those students who participate,” Begay said. “Hopefully they can maintain the requirements, do well and stay on track.”

It is open to the entire university and provides many opportunities to students.

with the pool of candidates produced from the initial search in the spring semester of 2013. Vito said that the effort in the fall was more successful, and she was pleased with the two final candidates, one of whom was White. “[White] has really led the area [of Student Affairs] and I felt like she would be able to continue on the progress that she’s done,” Vito said. “She earned the position through the process.” White has worked with the UA for more than 20 years, holding previous positions in Minority Student Affairs and the Office of Multicultural Affairs. White attended Virginia Commonwealth University for her undergraduate education and received a master’s degree in education at NAU. The dean of students oversees several areas of the UA, including the Associated Students of the University of Arizona, the Graduate and Professional Student Council, Arizona Student Media and Campus Health Service, according to White. The Dean of Students Office also handles the UA Misdemeanor Diversion Program for students. “[The position] is a lot of direct student contact in student leadership and development and employment,” White said. Morgan Abraham, president of ASUA, said that ASUA works very closely with the Dean of Students Office and has worked with White since she entered office around nine months ago. Abraham was one of the members on the search committee for the dean of students. “The reason I supported Kendal [Washington White] so heavily is because she is a really good balance of doing what needs to be done,” Abraham said. “At the same time … she’s really personable and students really love her.” Vito said that she is happy with the progress White has already made in the Dean of Students Office. “Kendal [Washington White] did a really terrific job and has done a great job in the interim role, and [is] making progress on some significant issues,” Vito said. White said that she is looking forward to serving in her permanent role as dean of students. “I think it’s a great opportunity to serve the larger institution around health and safety issues in particular,” White said. “I’m fortunate to be a part of a great team of folks in Student Affairs.”

Breakout sessions held next will offer a closer, more interactive look at three key issues within the topic of diversity: women in the workforce, LGBTQ issues or mentorship. Students are given the choice of which breakout session they would like to attend. The conference will end with a talk by Dave Schechter, a vice president at Nike.

Weighing perks of weight loss BY MAURA HIGGS The Daily Wildcat


s Arizona heats back up to those warm spring days we all know and love, I am slowly being bombarded with images of the perfect beach body. More and more people are heading to the Student Recreation Center to reach this ideal figure. I’m totally for looking better and becoming healthier while doing so, but the idea of losing weight just for its own sake is an unappealing one. Our culture of diets and weight loss seems to create the belief that as long as you’re skinny, you’re healthy. I see this delusion everywhere. As Kate Moss said, “Nothing tastes better than skinny feels.” But thinness is not necessarily a sign of health. What is, though? The World Health Organization defines health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.” This means everything from sexual health and family planning to the social environment you engage in on a daily basis. I also define health as feeling good. It means feeling mentally and physically comfortable at whatever weight I am. It means watching what foods I eat and my level of exercise every week, and modifying them until I feel good and energetic. Body image is a hot topic. Recently Sports Illustrated announced that its swimsuit issue will feature Barbie on the cover. This portrays a specific image of what women are supposed to look like, and women — especially teenagers and college students — find themselves trying to decide if that’s how they should look. Additionally, it’s reported that between 10 to 20 percent of college-age females, as well as 4 to 10 percent of college-age males, are affected by an eating disorder like anorexia or bulimia. Eating disorders are often linked to other psychiatric disorders such as depression. Both anorexia and bulimia occur because of the idea that skinny is healthy. In fact, health depends on your body’s composition of muscle and fat, as well as how tall you are. Is it possible, if we create a more supportive environment for ourselves, we could potentially help to slowly change our mindset to one of a better and more fair image of ourselves? A few different initiatives have been taken to hopefully create that environment here on our own campus. According to its website, the mission of UA Body Smart is “to enhance self-worth, resiliency and empower body image among UA students of all genders.” The Love Your Body Program offers peer-led discussions to explore where body image issues originate. As this program is still fairly new, only time can tell if it will make a difference on our campus. It holds events on the UA Mall where students can write the reasons why they are excellent the way they are. Another, UA Hope Notes, was created to get students to encourage each other to believe that they are worthy of happiness in their own skin. The idea is that you leave sticky notes around campus with encouraging messages for other students to find. If you find one, you’re encouraged to share it using social media, especially Instagram. Steps such as these can create a positive difference in our social environments here on campus. They are working to change the dialogue and make it more open and comfortable for students to get help or learn how to help their peers. The goal is that as these programs grow and evolve, they can reach more people in the UA community. This can be done by encouraging a friend or becoming a mentor. We need to spread the message that it is more important to be healthy than it is to be skinny.

On-campus options leave the chow conscious hungry BY brittany rudolph The Daily Wildcat


y first year at the UA was full of minor culture shocks. I had to walk everywhere. I shared a small room with someone for the first time. Girls in matching neon tank tops with strange, imposing letters on them called me a “plebe” as they drove down greek row. And to make matters worse, there was nothing to eat. If you’re thinking that I, a hapless freshman, couldn’t manage to find the Student Union Memorial Center, you’re partly right. However, even when I did find my way there, the student union’s options seemed profoundly dissatisfying. Gone were my youthful days of fresh fruits and vegetables (french fries not included). Instead, I had access to all of the Burger King and Chick-fil-A I could possibly want. What option could possibly give students more than a future filled with fries and fudge? The answer is closer to us than expected, literally. Locally grown fruits and vegetables could provide healthy alternatives to what’s currently sold on campus. Ashley Sanders, a veterinary science junior and undergraduate director for Students for Sustainability, defines locally-grown food as food grown within a 200-mile radius. For us, that’s roughly the distance from Tucson to Phoenix. Foods with lower transport times stay fresher and retain their nutrients better, creating healthier culinary options.

From “ASUA to launch campaign supporting stable tuition” (by Meghan Fernandez, Feb. 13) I agree completely with [Associated Students of the University of Arizona President Morgan] Abraham about the need for containing tuition increases. As a contingent faculty member potentially affected by any freeze in streams of funding, I hope Mr. Abraham will check the legal public records easily accessible to any citizen and ask those with knowledge of exactly what this kind of freeze will mean. Where, for example, will the deficit from a tuition freeze be made up — specifically? Are those supporting Mr. Abraham willing to live without certain luxuries to make this work? I encourage everyone

at the UA to check the salaries of all their professors. Ask yourselves whether you are willing to reduce the paycheck of your favorite teacher, a teacher who likely, if you are paying out of state tuition, makes less per year than you pay for a year’s worth of classes? Demand cuts not come out of their incomes. Specify areas where cuts should be made. Where is the bloat? Because there will be cuts. Any proposals Abraham may formally make need to be fully informed. The more support he receives from UA stakeholders, the more likely this might work. —Ben Quick Go Mr. Abraham! I believe inflated tuition, as UA now has, will be the demise of universities as we know them. It is the single most important reason my support for my alma mater will remain trivial in $$$.

our way in higher ed’ by paving the halls with gold instead of focusing on education. By the way, I “served” on the Student Senate in the ’60s and those are the same stiff backed chairs! Where is the money going anyway? — 60s Wildcat From “Wildcats are prepared for a possibly wet valentine” (by Luke Della, Feb. 12) Unfortunately for the state of Arizona this rivalry game may be overshadowed by the actions of a rude ASU student. The spitting incident that made national news and gave a “black eye,” to the Territorial Cup Basketball game will certainly be the talk surrounding the game. Hopefully, most people will not make the unfortunate mistake of confusing classy UA fans with the ASU fans. Last week’s incident is merely one of many reasons that separate these two schools, and Peter Griffin from “Family Guy,” made

a joke about “getting into ASU with a note from your mom.” Bear Down! — Moon Luten OK, so the spitting was very unfortunate and classless. That being said the incident was preceded by a Oregon player stalking in front of the student section. He said “I was trying to walk off a injury” I have season tickets in front of the visitors bench, he could have went the other direction and not interacted with the fan base at all. Even that said, he proceeded to taunt and throw fake elbows at the student section. If that had happened at the zoo, what do you think would have happened? So that being said, don’t grade all ASU fans on one student. By the way, I was harassed at your football stadium, called names, and threatened, as well as my wife, so take the high and mighty attitude and stow it… Kisses. — Peter Nerat

Two UA students were involved in a verbal altercation at the Harvill building on Wednesday around 11 a.m. On Thursday, a University of Arizona Police Department officer met with a student involved in the altercation . The student told the officer that he had class in the Harvill building and that he liked to sit near the front of the classroom. One day, another student he did not know sat in front of him. The student explained that he stretched out his legs and accidentally hit the chair of the student in front of him, who turned around and give him a dirty look. From that day on, the student explained, he tried to make an effort to sit elsewhere and avoid the other student. On Feb. 10, the student said he unintentionally sat behind the same student, again stretching his legs out in front of him, but this time did not hit the other student’s chair. Again, the other student looked over his shoulder gave him dirty looks. On Wednesday, the student decided to sit behind the same male student, who again turned around and stared at him. The student speaking with the officer explained that he said, “What’s up, dude?” to the other studen,t who became angry and raised his voice. The two students began to argue about the chair incident, telling each other to move seats, until finally the student speaking with the officer told the other student to contact the UAPD about his “space problems.” He then proceeded to tell the student with “space problems” that he was a crybaby and that he was lucky there were witnesses. The teacher finally came into the classroom, told everyone to be quiet and began class. The officer told the student reporting the altercation that no criminal violation had occurred and advised him to avoid contact with the other student.

A student was diverted to the Dean of Students Office for possession of marijuana on Wednesday at 10:40 p.m. Two officers responded to Árbol de la Vida Residence Hall after a report that someone had marijuana on the third floor. When the residence assistant took the officers to the third floor, there was a strong smell of marijuana coming from one of the rooms. A female student opened the door, and one of the officers asked if she knew where her roommate was. She said yes and got her from the study room down the hall. The officer explained he was there because of the smell of marijuana coming from their room. The student who opened the door said she did not own any marijuana and that they could search her property. The other roommate refused a search of her property and asked what the consequences of having marijuana would be. The officer explained that she would be diverted and arrested, and that they would apply for a search warrant. She then pulled out a baggie of marijuana from the bottom of a cabinet and said she had not smoked it since last semester. The officer took it and diverted her to the Dean of Students Office for possession of marijuana. |

No. 4 Arizona men’s basketball will turn to bench players to give overworked starters rest and cure offensive woes




FRESHMAN ELLIOT PITTS plays defense during the Wildcats’ 69-66 loss against ASU in Tempe, Ariz., on Friday. Pitts only played five minutes out of 50 in Arizona’s double-overtime loss to the Sun Devils, scored no points and was 0-for-2 from the field. Pitts and other bench players are expected to play more minutes. The reserves also failed to score in the ASU loss.


For the No. 4 Arizona men’s basketball team, the past two weeks without sophomore forward Brandon Ashley have been a bleak change of pace. The Wildcats have lost two of their past four games after winning 21 straight. In Arizona’s 69-66 doubleovertime loss to ASU Friday, the Wildcats shot a dismal 35.9 percent accuracy from the floor. Recently, the Arizona has been utilizing different rotations in an attempt to compensate for Ashley’s loss, but has lacked the offensive production it once had. Arizona converted 23 of its 64 field goal attempts against the Sun Devils. Head coach Sean Miller said in his weekly press conference on Monday that he’s the first to admit the team needs to be scoring far more efficiently than it has been. His solution moving forward is to dig deeper into the rotation and spread around minutes.

“Nobody understands more key because once you decide we’ll definitely look for more than I that the ball going in the not to play [the bench], you have contribution off the bench out of basket a little bit more — whether players [in the game] playing ‘not Pitts, York, Mayes and Korcheck. that’s execution or sometimes to make mistakes,’” Miller said. Those guys coming in and just a player making the shots “Transitions opportunities aren’t helping us out will give us that extra boost of energy towards the he’s taking — will give us a lot as plentiful.” Miller went on to say that the end of the games.” more room for error,” Miller said.

UA hosts weekday series with Wolverines BY EVAN ROSENFELD The Daily Wildcat

Arizona baseball continues its season-opening 23-game homestand tonight and Wednesday afternoon when it hosts Utah Valley at Hi Corbett Field. Mathew Troupe is projected to start Tuesday evening’s game. Wednesday’s starter has not been named as of Monday, but Wednesday will most likely be an opportunity for either an underclassman to try to earn a spot in the weekend rotation, or a redemption start for junior Tyler Crawford. Offensively through three games, Arizona (2-1) has been led by third baseman Cody Ramer. Over the weekend the sophomore, who hits near the bottom of the lineup, had six hits. He scored four times and had three RBIs. The Wildcats outscored Kent State 25-16 in the weekend

Arizona wins first game after Sitton BY daniela vizcarra The Daily Wildcat

On Friday, Arizona men’s rugby won the first game in the post-Dave Sitton era. The Wildcats (1-2-1) beat No. 16 Air Force 25-19 at home to secure new head coach Sean Duffy’s first win. Duffy took over for Sitton, who led the UA’s men’s rugby team for nearly 40 years. “Dave Sitton laid down a great foundation and I want to put together a program that he would be proud of,” Duffy said. Sitton died unexpectedly on Aug. 12. The Wildcats tied their first game of the season 26-26 at ASU on Dec. 17. Then Arizona lost 76-10 at No. 6 Saint Mary’s College on Jan. 17 in the home opener, and 17-7 to Utah in Las Vegas on Jan. 24. Captain and senior number eight Trevor Laue said the Wildcats have embraced Duffy and his style of coaching. “It is a step up in intensity level and that will take our team to the next level,” Laue said. “It has been a smooth transition.” The UA’s next home game will be against

about how we prepare ourselves mentally and physically over the next two weeks, and then anything’s possible over the course of a week.” Being selected for the tournament was the icing on the cake of an already historic year for Arizona. Earlier this season the Wildcats defeated two No. 1 teams for the first time in program history after beating then top-ranked

No. 2 California on March 2 at 2 p.m. at the Rincon Vista Sports Complex. “Cal will probably be our toughest opponent this season,” Laue said. Two Wildcats, prop Brett Thompson and center Ryan Matyas, are sitting out the season to play for the U.S. National Team in the IRB Sevens World Series. The next competition for the Eagles is the Tokyo Sevens on Mar. 22-23.

Women’s rugby bounces back

On Sunday, Arizona women’s rugby snapped a two-game losing streak and got revenge against UCLA. The Wildcats lost both games on a road trip to California, 28-7 at UCLA on Feb. 8 and 60-7 at UCSD on Feb. 9, but rebounded on Sunday to beat UCLA 40-7. Head coach Richard Wortman said he is looking forward to the team’s second season as a Division I team. “I am hoping with the training and conditioning we have been doing since last season, to make the PMRC, Pacific Mountain Rugby Conference playoffs in April,” Wortman said. Arizona earned a 28-17 win over ASU at

Minot State on Nov. 8 at the TCC and ASU on its senior night Feb. 1. For the newer faces of Wildcat hockey, this accomplishment may seem routine. But for the six seniors, especially the five who were Icecats as freshman, the invitation carries a much heavier weight. “This is for all the Wildcats and Icecats who went four years without beating ASU or making it to the national tournament,” said senior forward and team point-scoring leader Andrew Murmes. “We’re doing it for them.” Because no one on the Arizona roster has

home on Feb. 1. The ruggers’ next home game will be against UCSD. “UCSD will be a tough challenge. Possibly we can come away with a win,” Wortman said. “The team will need to play with a lot of heart.”

The game against UCSD will be Feb. 23 at 11 a.m. at the Rincon Vista Sports Complex.

never played in the postseason at the ACHA level, the players must use prior experience from other leagues. Luckily for the Wildcats, their captain Ansel Ivens-Anderson has played on one of college hockey’s biggest stages. Both years the senior forward was part of New Hampshire’s NCAA Division I program, he helped the team advance to the Elite Eight. “We have plenty of guys here that have been on winning teams with a lot of postseason experience,” Ivens-Anderson said. “The guys that don’t are still very skilled players, so it’s a good mix.”

While the coaches and players alike are celebrating now, their work in the regular season is not yet finished. This weekend Arizona will square off twice against No. 1 ASU (34-2-0) at the TCC. The puck will drop both nights at 7:30 p.m., and Saturday is the UA’s senior night. “It’s all about effort and attitude; it’s never been about talent,” Hogan said. “But we’re onward and upward, headed in the right direction.”

them? Time. Chances are, if you felt OK and avoided getting sick on the nights you happened to drink more, you probably did a good job of spacing those drinks out over a longer period of time. While theories on alcohol abound, the thing that gets most people sick is simply too much alcohol, too fast. What you’re drinking can also make a difference. Even though a standard shot of hard alcohol (around 1 oz. of 40% alcohol) is roughly equivalent to 12 oz. of 4% beer, the difference is the time it takes to drink them. Because shots go down quickly and hit your system that much faster, it’s easy to overindulge. By contrast, enjoying a beer or mixed drink takes more time and allows you to pace your consumption. Last but not least, whether you drink on an empty or full stomach can also affect how you feel and how rapidly your blood alcohol concentration (BAC) rises, since food in your stomach slows the absorption of alcohol into your bloodstream. As a result, having a meal before a night out is a good way to keep your social buzz longer. On the other hand, drinking on empty can cause your BAC to spike, which usually results in drinking more along the way. And it’s no surprise that those higher BACs tend to be accompanied by things like throwing up, blacking out, run-ins with law enforcement, and an assortment of other not-so-fun experiences. The good news is that by drinking less, spacing out your drinks, dodging the hard stuff, and eating food before you party, you can avoid the less enjoyable aspects of alcohol in the first place.

‘Left Behind’ gets it right again BY torsten ward The Daily Wildcat

When fans like myself found out a few weeks ago that downloadable content for our favorite post-apocalyptic game was coming out on Valentine’s Day, dinner reservations were canceled and money that would have been spent on generic chocolate and flowers was saved for this title. But $15 is a more-than-suitable price for additional content for the game “The Last of Us.” Naughty Dog’s award-winning title is the pinnacle of video game storytelling. Because of this, writing an in-depth review of the game’s first narrative DLC release, “Left Behind,” presents more spoiler opportunities than talking about “Breaking Bad” in a room full of people still concerned about Krazy 8. Anything Naughty Dog puts out is worth playing, so I’ll try my best to keep spoilers to a minimum. This Santa Monica-based developer has created a world so dark and desolate, yet so vivid and expansive, that making the decision to jump in has never been easier, and here’s why:

The story

“Left Behind” helps fill in a notable gap of time that occurs well into “The Last of Us.” Without giving anything away, this gap COURTESY OF NAUGHTY DOG presents itself shortly before “The Last of Us,” a video game based in an apocalyptic world, is unique due to the time that was spent developing characters. The game is now being extended in “Left Behind.” players get to go deer hunting with quite something. for Joel to power through a room boring, I assure you it isn’t — Ellie’s while exploring the world of “Left Ellie.

Clooney’s WWII film struggles with tone He gets distracted, diverting from the main point on numerous occasions to focus on the lives of the individual men. Yet, he doesn’t dive Even though “The Monunments Men” has deep enough into their characters to make it star-studded cast, it does not automatically worthwhile. There is little in the film to make you care about these men past the noble cause result in a blockbuster hit. The film is a WWII drama and the fifth movie that they’re fighting for. It’s a wine-tasting George Clooney has directed. It stars Clooney experience. You get a hint of each man’s story, as art-historian Frank Stokes. The character is but never a full serving. “The Monuments Men” contains many tasked with leading a team of unlikely art lovers into Europe to locate and retrieve legendary art subplots, but none of them lead to anything. that has been stolen by the Nazis. Matt Damon, For example, Damon and Cate Blanchett share Bill Murray, John Goodman, Bob Balaban, a weird one-sided romantic love affair that has Jean Dujardin and Hugh Bonneville join him no rhyme or reason to it. It gives Blanchett a on this journey, but as was the case in the last chance to show her acting chops, but the most two films directed by Clooney, “Leatherheads” Clooney gets out of it is a witty one-liner toward and “Ides of March,” it falls short of its potential. the movie’s climax. Because the story and characters are so From the onset, the film struggles to find empty, the dramatics of a consistent tone and has the film simply aren’t very no identity. At times it feels dramatic. One of the characters like a comedy, except it isn’t From the dies defending a relic, which that funny. It never achieves onset, the is an event that continually is the comedic potential of the film struggles brought up in the third act of Murray-Balaban odd-couple to find a the film. The audience shrugs pairing. Other times it has consistent tone because they aren’t very drama and some action, but connected to the deceased and has no it’s hardly a serious movie. character. The score is upbeat and identity. The two months between cheery. New Year’s and the Oscars are Clooney knows he’s notorious for being the worst dealing with the serious topic of war, but doesn’t acknowledge the gravity time of year for moviegoers. This time is called of the situation until late in the film. In one “Dumpuary.” Hollywood releases the films that scene, the men discover a barrel of gold teeth weren’t good enough for awards consideration and take a second to consider where the teeth in order to do a bit better in the box office. “The came from. It’s a mildly harrowing moment, Monuments Men” was originally scheduled but it’s one that isn’t earned and feels rather for a December release date before being manufactured. There are numerous scenes in moved back to February. It’s a “Dumpuary” which Clooney tries to add deeper elements movie for sure. Clooney is an ideologue. His last film, “The to the hollow script and it doesn’t work. The film is frustrating because there are flashes of Ides of March” preached to us the corruption greatness throughout, but is hindered by poor in politics. It looked nice and had a murder’s row of a cast, but ultimately fell flat on its filmmaking that can’t put it all together. As can be expected from the cast, the face because it thought it was much smarter performances are all good. There are some than it actually was. “The Monuments Men” great scenes as well, namely one involving begins and ends with Clooney explaining to Goodman, Dujardin and a horse, but they’re government officials why it’s important to few and far between. “The Monuments Men” preserve this art, but does little to prove his has no idea what kind of film it wants to be point. and ends up feeling very rushed. The main idea of the film is that art embodies the lives of people and their history. Clooney’s directing — Follow Taylor Armosino @tarmosino is in the right place but his execution is poor.
