Of course you don’t, but thankfully, for the sake of us all, director Paul Feig sure did. Enter the comedic Hitchcockian thriller: A Simple Favor. The basic...

Spicer on Campus: Little to Offer, Much to Gain

If we lived in a just world, Sean Spicer and the other former members of the Trump Administration would be too ashamed to show their faces in public, spending their post-Trump lives separated from a country that has, at best, forgotten about them. Instead, Spicer, in an event sponsored by the Georgetown Institute of Politics...

For Fear of Ignorance

Social media has forever changed the nature of social justice activism. Internet activism has taken off, allowing people from across the world to share their opinions in a second or promote a rally that may have previously gone unnoticed.

Reflections on a Catholic Crisis

This summer has been quite a difficult one for Catholics in America. From the exposure of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick’s heinous actions to the Pennsylvania grand jury report that uncovered approximately 300 Catholic priests had sexually abused over 1,000 minors, to former Apostolic Nuncio Archbishop Carlo Vigano’s letter that alleges Pope Francis helped cover up McCarrick’s...

From November 17, 2013 to December 8, 2013, Josh Gordon was the greatest receiver in NFL history. He went for 125 yards in Week 11, followed that up with 237 yards in Week 12, somehow outdid himself the next week going for 261 yards, and closed with 151 yards against the Patriots. In true Browns...

Legion of Bust

The Seattle Seahawks. Just hearing their name should cause an immediate response: you either love them or you hate them. Even when I could not differentiate between the Seahawks and the Eagles, I was able to guess who the Seahawks were based on people’s reactions. They are the team you love to hate, yet being...

Trailer Takes: Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, Wildlife, and Aquaman

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina — https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ab_rXrgk5R4 Leina: First off, why does every horror movie trailer have to feature an eerie version of a children’s song? Can’t we preserve the naivety of anything anymore? As it is, with the directors of Riverdale, I expect there will be no shortage of teen drama, cryptic undertones, and pretty...
