Since its award-winning debut at the Venice Film Festival, Joker (2019) has been generating heated discussion online. Many critics praised it as a compelling film that stands out from the usual crowd of superhero fare, while others criticized its portrayal of gun violence and mental illness or its nihilistic political stance. These general lines of…

Charlie’s Angels: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=voYLots_ZOg Roman: I hope to all things holy that this movie is set in the same universe as Pitch Perfect (2012), and Elizabeth Banks is playing the same character in each. The soundtrack easily sets up this ideal crossover, and it’s not difficult to see Banks play a day drinking spy who turns…

The history between the Voice and The Hoya is contentious to say the least. In 1969, a group of Hoya editors staged a coup because the newspaper refused to cover the anti-Vietnam War movement and other off-campus issues.

Mario Kart has been a staple of gaming since its 1992 debut, but I remember it best for its 2003 Gamecube Double Dash experience. Yes, I was the character in multiplayer mode that sat on the back of the cart while contributing absolutely nothing to the driving experience. And let me tell you, I killed…

Two weeks ago, Jodie Comer of Killing Eve won the Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Drama Series to everyone’s surprise—including herself. During her speech, she joked that she was so convinced she wasn’t going to win this time that she told her family not to come. I was surprised too, not because I…

For a university with an undergraduate population of about 7,000 students, Georgetown has a remarkably small campus. While my lazy ass certainly wouldn’t want to change this, there are definitely a few drawbacks to this situation. Most notably: There is not a lot of extra space. Study areas are relatively few and fill up fast;…

Hello, all! It’s (unfortunately) midterm season, so here’s a playlist of bangers to get you through your study sessions. We’re also in the fall season, which means 2019 is almost over–can you believe we’re approaching the second decade of the twenty-first century?

Sticks and Stones: Will Jokes Ever Hurt Us?

In perhaps one of the most controversial comedy specials in the last 10 years, Dave Chappelle opens with a joke about Anthony Bourdain’s suicide. Bourdain, the victims of Michael Jackson, the LGBTQ+ community, and the #MeToo movement are just some of the casualties in Chappelle’s comedic protest of political correctness.  After walking away from a…
