Rhinoceros Brings the Human to Life in a Play About Non-Humans

This April, Fordham Experimental Theatre (FET) presented its production of Eugene Ionesco’s Rhinoceros.

Rhinoceros tells the story of a small town disrupted by the appearance of a rampaging rhinoceros. As the townspeople debate its appearance, or even whether or not it existed at all, it gradually becomes apparent that people are becoming rhinoceroses. This slow process continues until nearly all the townspeople have ‘turned’, leaving only the central couple alone to face the rhinoceroses. But how long can the two of them really last as the only humans left?

This Article is a Simulation: A Review of Ready Player One

I wasn’t very interested in seeing Ready Player One, considering I hadn’t read the book nor was I very interested in the concept at all. I had also heard the book had some problematic elements when it comes to representation. Nevertheless, right before spring break ended my friend asked me to go see this with him, since he had read the book and thoroughly enjoyed it. I decided to go and see it.

Solo Trailer Proves Star Wars Franchise Will Never Die

Disclaimer: Everyone is entitled to their own opinions. I genuinely enjoy the new movies being released by Lucasfilm and I love seeing this new, younger generation of Star Wars fans get excited the same way I did when The Clone Wars came out. I am not forcing you to like the new movies, but please do not come at me saying I am not a “true fan” just because I actually liked The Force Awakens. The new movies do not make me love the original trilogy any less.

The Ax Visits: Political Strategist Comes to Fordham

On Monday April 9th, David Axelrod, a former advisor to Barack Obama, came to Fordham to speak at the invitation of the College Democrats. The event took place at the third-floor auditorium of Keating Hall, because the Campus Activities Board was using the main auditorium for a showing of The Greatest Showman. Excitement for the event was more than organizers expected because the auditorium was filled to capacity and some people who arrived close to the speech’s start time were turned away after the doors were closed.

Blood in the Water: Sharks Close in on Trump and Friends

It’s that time of the month again folks! In the endless cesspool of controversy and scandals surrounding the administration of President Donald Trump it can be hard to recognize the fact that in any other presidency, these scandals would be career ending. Personally, I completely understand if one chooses to tune out all of the controversy, and “check out” from the news cycle, so to speak; there’s only so many times you can say “this will be the end of Trump’s career” before you yourself start to question if the President will ever truly suffer the consequences of his action. In addition, there are very little historical examples as to Trumps behavior; this is completely uncharted territory, and it is easy to become fatigued. Despite this, I feel as if it is our duty to follow these stories with diligence, as if we forget about the controversy, that is inadvertently letting Trump off the hook for behavior that in any other situation would be considered despicable.

Isle Of Dogs Is A Spectacular Commentary on Mass-Hysteria

From the stunning stop-animation to his dynamic characters, Wes Anderson has truly outdone himself yet again, in his latest film, Isle of Dogs. As a huge fan of Wes Anderson’s work, as well as a huge lover of dogs, I was super excited when I saw the preview for this filmwhen I went to see Black Panther (which, of course, was also brilliant.) And, I’m happy to say, my expectations were certainly met and perhaps were even exceeded.

Hey Professors, Stop Calling on Me

I’m trapped in Faculty Memorial Hall on a Thursday morning, shifting uncomfortably in my seat every two minutes, unable to stop thinking about breakfast sandwiches. I’m copying down the notes from the PowerPoint, tapping my pen against my chin, and drawing random lines in the margins of my notebook. The professor asks the class a question, and I do everything in my power to slip into the void to remain invisible. The lines in my notebook are suddenly the most interesting thing I’ve ever seen! But then, it happens. A giant spotlight shines down from above and hits me directly in the eye. There’s nowhere to run now. I’ve just been randomly called on even though I’ve done nothing to suggest that I want to answer this question.
