You might know David Fincher, director of such films as Seven, Fight Club, and The Social Network. You probably also know Gone Girl, the 2012 novel by Gillian Flynn that enjoyed a very long tenure as a New York Times bestseller. It may not be a surprise, then, that the marriage of these two elements…

What ever happened to artistry? It’s a legitimate societal concern given the omnipresence of 140-character Twitter screeds and Buzzfeed articles that pare life down to short, consumable, forgettable numbered lists. But it’s an issue that’s even more pressing in the realm of contemporary fiction itself. Recently, we’ve seen J.K. Rowling assert that Hermione would, in…

  Music biopics have a tendency to rear toward hagiography, as the stars they depict often end up falling into the stereotype of tortured genius or underdog who bucked the odds to become a superstar. These films are almost surely Oscar-bait and rarely provide new insight into the artist’s life. JIMI: All Is by My…

Midterm season hit in full force last week, so after spending a weekend working on a 10 page paper and studying I desperately needed to get off campus and into the real world. So I asked myself: what could I do on a Tuesday evening, for free, and in walking distance from the Front Gates?…

Who Wants to be a Millionaire? Wheeeeel of Fortune! Deal or No Deal? These phrases are etched in our memory from wasting days away on our couches with the flu, Wednesday night neighborhood viewing parties, or even a spontaneous showing because you were intrigued after that episode of American Idol ran late.

There’s a certain set of neuroses associated with playing music that will resonate with anyone who’s ever picked up an instrument: that during practice you’ll out yourself as incompetent to your bandmates, that the inevitable screw-up will happen during a critical performance, that eventually you’ll encounter a part that is simply beyond your ability, etc….

American cinema has always been defined by its ability to innovate. Westworld, a small sci-fi movie released in 1973 starring Yul Brynner, changed the way movies would be made forever. It was the first film to use two-dimensional computer images, which would eventually evolve into what we now call CGI, or Computer Generated Images. Westworld…

As a native Californian, there are few things I find more pleasurable than fresh, locally sourced produce. Just thinking about leafy, fresh-picked collard greens warms my soul; as far a social movements go, the Farm to Table movement is near and dear to my heart. Lucky for me, and other produce-lovers out there, Georgetown offers…
