Star Wars: The Last Jedi is Half of a Great Star Wars film

Two films into a new trilogy, and three films into the new Disney era in a galaxy far, far away, audiences have yet to get something completely new from the creative team at Lucasfilm. The Force Awakens, while undeniably familiar and derivative, worked as a reinvigoration of the franchise. Rogue One provided an intriguing expansion...

For Akheem Presents Black Lives Just As They Are

17-year-old Daje “Boonie” Shelton is a “bad kid.” Marked as such early on—a burden that, to hear her tell it, primed others to expect less of her in a depressingly predictable cycle—Daje is expelled from her public high school and ordered to attend Innovative Concept Academy, a court-supervised school that offers “delinquent teens” a chance...

Gary Oldman’s Churchill is a Towering Figure in Darkest Hour

Many will want to refer to Darkest Hour, Joe Wright’s latest directorial effort, as a history lesson. The film traces Winston Churchill’s first month in office, providing a detailed look at the politics behind the British decision to finally engage in total war with Germany after the fall of Western Europe. However, the film serves...

Critical Voices: Björk, Utopia

Björk’s latest album, Utopia, released on Nov. 23, is one of the longest she has produced so far, comprised of fourteen tracks, one of them, “Body Memory,” lasting almost ten minutes.

Hypocrisy on the Hilltop

On Monday, I was deeply disturbed to learn that the university that taught me the importance of economic justice and the dignity of labor is now refusing to recognize its teaching assistants as workers, in contravention of established federal law, Catholic social teaching, and its own Just Employment Policy. I spent six years at Georgetown—four as a student,...

“Just Keep Swimming”

I watch a lot of movies and television. In fact, I pride myself on my binge-watching ability. My favorite thing to do is curl up in bed, snacks handy and the TV (or laptop, because it’s 2017 and who isn’t watching everything on their laptop now?) playing whatever show I’m into at the moment. I...

J20 Defendants Face a Miscarriage of Justice

Criminal hearings began earlier this month for the more than 230 protesters facing felony charges for destruction of property and conspiracy to riot, based on events that transpired on Jan. 20—the day of President Donald Trump’s inauguration. For many of these so-called “J20” protesters, the charges could total 70 years or more of prison sentences....

“Waving Betsy Ross’s Flag Higher”

When I was 16, I boarded a one-way flight to Lima, Peru with an ill-fitting blazer draped over my arm and a folded-up American flag in my suitcase. My final destination was Arequipa, a city that sits at the foot of a dormant volcano, a city I came to call home over the next year....
