When Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace was set to be released in theaters in May of 1999, it was arguably the most anticipated movie of all time. Fans would buy tickets to other non-Star Wars films solely to see the trailer for The Phantom Menace, promptly walking out of the theater after the…

In the early days of James Bond, the protagonist was based around a very simple idea: women wanted him, and men wanted to be him. Surprisingly enough, this was never the intention of Ian Fleming, the character’s creator. In a 1962 interview with The New Yorker, Fleming said that he wanted Bond to simply be…

On April 16, 2015, at the invitation of the Georgetown University College Republicans (GUCR), Christina Hoff Sommers, a resident scholar at the American Enterprise Institute studying feminism and American culture, gave a lecture in a Healy Hall classroom titled, “What’s Right (and Badly Wrong) with Feminism.” Some students filed along the back wall of the…

Although Bridge of Spies is set during the Cold War, it is a surprisingly timely film. Director Steven Spielberg’s new release repeatedly challenges the legal representation of enemy combatants, a question that America’s justice system has struggled with throughout its history—from John Adams representing the British soldiers responsible for the Boston Massacre to the rights…

Today, October 21st, 2015, is one of the most anticipated in film-geek history. It’s the day that Marty McFly and Doc Brown travelled to in the classic Robert Zemeckis film, Back to the Future.

Ridley Scott’s relationship with the science-fiction genre has been inconsistent, to say the least. Alien and Blade Runner are two bona-fide classics, but the much more recent Prometheus was poorly received. Now, Scott returns to the genre with The Martian, a film based on Andy Weir’s best-selling novel. Fortunately, the film’s A-list cast and crew…

Duran Duran took off in the 1980s thanks to catchy hits and risqué music videos. With upbeat tempos and memorable lyrics, the group was able to remain a part of the musical world for decades, despite touring less over time.

For those of you who have been following Halftime’s Brunch Bracket, you’ve probably been wondering, what is Castano’s Backyard?   Well, so were we. We had to go.
