     The movie A Star is Born, directed and starred Bradley Cooper, featured Lady Gaga and was released on October 5th, 2018 in theaters nationwide. The 2018 film is a remake of the 1937 movie starring Janet Gaynor and Fredric March.

     Many Serra students who went to see the movie came back with rave reviews. Senior Issabelle Rodriguez commented on the dramatic movie, saying, “The most emotional part for me was in the end when Ally (Lady Gaga) was singing and the flashbacks of their romances kept showing up.” Although the movie became more and more saddening as it went on, there were many life lessons that can be learned. Rodriguez states, “The biggest thing I took from the movie was to always stay true to yourself because I think many people forget that while they try being someone they're not.” A Star is Born portrays the progression of Ally’s career when she meets Jackson and how during the course of it, her image changes; nevertheless, she returns to...

    Senior Jacob Davis is not only a loyal friend, but someone who is determined in all passions. Anyone who has ever met Davis knows of his passion for photography as he can often be seen carrying a camera around campus. As one of the yearbook photographers, Davis has expanded his already impressive photography skills. One of his pictures has even been featured in the Museum of Photographic Arts in Balboa Park. Over 600 applicants across all grade levels submitted for the competition; in order to qualify, Davis had to submit a paragraph explaining the meaning behind his photo, “To me, the photo represented the emotional boundaries of my depression. I’ve felt distanced from my friends and family and I’ve often missed out on life experiences,” details Davis. His parents encouraged him from a young age to participate in the art of photography, but it wasn't until his freshman year that Davis truly connected with the skill. Mr. Pederson, who teaches photography, first inspired him because...

He was just 40 years old. over a sixteen year career with the Toronto Blue Jays and the Phillidelphia Phillies, Halladay had become an eight time all star and a two time Cy Young award winner (an award given to the best pitcher of the season). Halladay threw a perfect game in his 2010 season, and on October sixth of that same year, against the Cincinatti Reds in the National League Division Series, he threw the second ever postseason no hitter. After hearing the news, MLB commissioner, Rob Manfred said, “A well respected figure throughout the game, Roy was a fierce competitor during his 16-year career...I extend my deepest condolences to his family...as well as the Blue Jays and Phillies organizations.”

     On November 22, 2017, Disney and Pixar released its newest film, Coco. Coco is about a 12 year old boy named Miguel who lives in Mexico and dreams of becoming a musician even though his family has banned music and does not support his dreams. On Día De Los Muertos, Miguel and a street dog named Dante, find themselves trapped in the Land of the Dead. Miguel ends up meeting a skeleton named Hector who takes Miguel on a musical journey while trying to find a way out of the Land of the Dead before it’s too late for him to return to the living world. Along the way Miguel is reunited with his ancestors. The story of Coco equally represents the importance of music and family.

     The six year process of making of Coco was not easy. It took hundreds of animators to create a single scene. The use of 3D animation allowed animators to capture every guitar movement, emotion, and light throughout the movie. Junior Alana Cecconi shares, “I saw Coco over Thanksgiving break the day...
