The theme song of this Sunday‘s Wrestlemania 22 is “Big Time” by Peter Gabriel, and this year‘s card does not fail to live up to the big time feel.This year‘s pay-per-view is being highlighted by two main events from World Wrestling Entertainment’s Raw and SmackDown brands.

WWE Champion John Cena will be defending his title in a one-on-one match against Triple H on the Raw main event. Wrestlemania, which is being held in Rosemont, Illinois at the Allstate Arena is considered to be the biggest event in professional wrestling.John Cena is currently on his second title reign. He first won the WWE Championship at last year‘s Wrestlemania from John Bradshaw Layfield, and he enjoyed a 9-month reign before being beaten by Edge at New Year‘s Revolution. He regained his title at the Royal Rumble one month later when he forced Edge to tap out to the STF-U.Triple H, who has won some kind of version of the Heavyweight Championship 10-times before, gained a spot in the main event by winning the Road to WrestleMania Tournament, in which he defeated Ric Flair, Big Show, and Rob Van Dam.Jason Abeleda, who proclaims himself as the biggest WWE fan on campus, says he is anticipating this match up. “I‘m picking Triple H for this one”, he predicted.

Film Clips: The Hills Have Eyes Guilty of Gore

By Reena Sandhu, Staff Writer

2 out of 5 stars

A remake to Wes Cravens 1977 cult classic, “ The Hills Have Eyes” was as disappointing as the remake of “ House of Wax”. Their pathetic attempt to rise a scare out of audiences, only rose their bottoms out of the theater.

Director Alexander Aja pushes the rated-R envelope with nonstop gruesome images. The movie starts with archive scenes of bomb test that has gone wrong in the desert. The images cut to gory images of miner test subjects who have been flawed into some odd mutations. Years later a family vacationing through this very dessert gets stranded with these mutated people. Fighting for their lives the family displays a bit of overacting throughout the movie. Being miles away from potential help, the family battles these hungry mutated miners.

Website: Email the future, talk to the past

By Cecile Miras, Staff Writer

Have you ever looked back to your past and just thought, “what was I thinking!?” Or, have you ever wondered, Where will I be in five years? Well, two friends loved the idea of being able to connect the past and the future and created this interesting website called Futureme.org.

Futureme.org is a website built by two guys named Matt and Jay. They actually took the assignment they
had in high school and college to write a letter to themselves in the future, and created a website for it. They based in on their principle that memories are less accurate than emails. They strive for  accuracy.

The website itself is written and explained in a very laid back and young tone and is very simple and easy to use. It requires you to enter an e-mail that has longevity in it, so that if you want to send a letter to yourself in 10 years, they can still get in touch with you.
