This is for everyone who copy edited, wrote articles, took photos, and put up with the general shenanigans of the entire editorial board. Sure, some of them just stumbled into our lair and are now too intimidated to leave, but we’re content in the knowledge that at least a couple volunteers love this stupid paper as much as we do. From all of us at the Gauntlet ­— thank you, and good night.

The movie came from Indonesia, was directed by a Welshman, Gareth Evans, and prominently featured the martial art pencak silat. Its primary issue was a complete lack of story and little reason to care about everything that happened. But those action scenes were so good and so brutal that this didn’t matter.
