A United Kingdom: Not a Failure, But Hardly a Success

Biographical films are tough as they tell the story of usually unknown real-life heroes that rose to the occasion and defied the system. Therefore, on one hand, filmmakers feel pressured to honestly present the ‘based-on-a-true-story’ lives that they portray, while, on the other, they must also entertain and please audiences, if only for the sake...

The Lego Batman Movie Builds a Better Batman

The Lego system has served as a building block for many people’s childhoods. With Legos, children and adults can create while limited only by the bricks in hand and the ideas in mind. Buildings are built, worlds are created—and then more bricks are needed. The possibility of Lego must have been attractive to game designers...

Vote Mack/Andino for GUSA Executive

As the GUSA executive election approaches, the Georgetown community is once again reminded of the student organization that ostensibly serves as the voice of the students to the administration.

Proactive Prevention Can Save the Green Ash From Invasive Beetles

On the well traversed walk from ICC to the Front Gates, it’s hard to miss perhaps the most famous, distinctive, photographed, and climbed of Georgetown’s trees: “The King” Green Ash. Even the most reclusive students can recall a time when the low limbs of this giant enticed them. A time when the grandeur of this...

Carrying On: Untangling the Art From the Artist

I have always been in love with movies. Beautiful, gritty, or suspenseful, it doesn’t matter. When done right, a film has the power to place me in a different world, a world more dazzling, more terrifying, or more outlandish than the one in which I reside. A soaring piece of music, a particularly cutting dialogue...

How DeMarcus Cousins made me a Kings fan, again

Trailer Takes: Ghost in the Shell, Song to Song, and The House

Ghost in the Shell, Trailer #2: Eman: From the get-go, I’m a pretty big fan of the original Ghost in the Shell. I haven’t delved into the annals of anime to that much of an extent, but 1995’s Ghost in the Shell is probably one of my favorite animated films in general. That being said, this live action...

We Are Now Entering The Twilight Zone

Good horror is hard to come by nowadays, either because the plots are unoriginal or the filming is focused on gruesome, bloody imagery. Shaking our heads in disappointment at the present state of horror, we must turn to the classics. Rod Sterling’s The Twilight Zone (1959-1964) is an iconic 20th century television series that features...
