The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, almonds, and having meltdowns when meetings didn’t start exactly at 9:00. This will be my legacy at the paper which I got to be a part of for a combined 5 semesters during my Fordham career (yes I’m counting the semester I was in Rome).
Four years have passed already? Wow, time flies when you’re making memes. Though, the best of that time was spent working on the paper and having fun with The Paper Pals. To be honest, when I first joined the paper I didn’t know what to expect. I remember going to the first meeting in the second semester of my freshman year and finding out that I could write about anything I wanted.
When my friend and I went to the Louvre we knew we had to plan accordingly. It’s the largest art museum in the world, with 38,000 pieces of art spread across over 700,000 square feet, not to mention that the Louvre Palace was established as a museum over 200 years ago. Before that it was a royal fortress then palace! Much to my friend’s dismay I was just as interested in the building as I was in the art objects, oops.
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.
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.
Ever since NBC has started airing live musicals on national television, I’ve either not watched the show or been massively disappointed. It nearly ruined Grease, The Sound of Music, Rocky Horror, and other shows so I was prepared to write off Jesus Christ Superstar when I saw the commercials.
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.
The 90th Annual Academy Awards are here. That means that in between all the uncomfortable jokes about Kevin Spacey, we’re going to try to recognize the best and brightest Hollywood has to offer, probably just to be proven wrong years later.
This “new” Netflix series is a grown-up Moonrise Kingdom. by Claire Nunez Editor-in-Chief I have wondered…
