Does it feel like every new Netflix release somehow makes it to No. 1 in “Movies in the U.S.” on Netflix? Conveniently, yes. Does every single one of them even deserve to be there? Absolutely not. Will I continue to watch every single one of them? Yes, especially if they’re by David Fincher.
I’m looking forward to Thanksgiving. You’re looking forward to Thanksgiving. Even our professors are probably desperate for a break. With that in mind, if you want to get started on break early, we here in the Arts & Entertainment section have the best new releases and recommendations for you!
The JHU Theatre Department’s Fall 2023 production was the ancient Greek comedy The Clouds by Aristophanes, with performances held Nov. 9, 11 and 12 in the Merrick Barn. Originally a massive flop for the Grecian playwright (placing third in a festival with three submissions), The Clouds has stood the test of time for its references to Socrates and The School of Athens, as well as its commentary on the baseness of sophistry, an ancient method of argumentation that favors intellectual trickery over moral principle.
What is a superhero? I think, for most of us, what instantly comes to mind is a caped crusader in brightly colored spandex. This costumed person uses their superpowers, which vary from flight to invisibility to X-ray vision, to fight bad guys. They do what’s right. They’re moral. They protect their city or their world from the stuff the average person can’t.
Filthy Frank, Pink Guy, Joji — George Kusunoki Miller has had many names and has evolved throughout the years. Yet, his transformation through these different identities and phases has left him with a loyal and avid fanbase. His evolution from internet comedian to international superstar has made him a pop culture icon, now with over 22 million Spotify monthly listeners. His professional music career as Joji has since led to four albums and numerous tours, his most recent being the Pandemonium tour.
When my friend and I burst out laughing at an unintentionally funny jumpscare, I knew that the Five Nights at Freddy’s (FNAF) movie wasn’t going to succeed as a horror movie. Instead, it exists in the weird space where it doesn’t achieve real horror but rather uses subdued scare tactics to achieve a PG-13 rating (and ultimately, get a larger audience for the box office).
Halloween may have passed, but its eerie air still remains. The ominous spirit of the season is carried on by the Barnstormers’ newest production, Witness for the Prosecution by Agatha Christie, an enthralling murder mystery. I was invited by the Barnstormers to watch a dress rehearsal for their upcoming show, and I went to the theater without any expectations.
As finals season draws closer and closer, the weather is getting frostier and student groups are finally starting to crank out the performances that they’ve been rehearsing for all semester.
When I imagine the types of people who listen to jazz today, I think of elderly men and women sipping glasses of red wine and doing fancy things, like attending galas and wearing strings of pearls.
Art and worship have a lot of similarities. Whether in antique halls full of echoing organs or in small residential get-togethers with songs by the hearth, there is an innate, subconscious feeling that you are where you need to be.
I’m so upset. Not because The Other Zoey, one of 2023’s most recent romantic comedies, didn’t live up to my expectations. It did. It was sweet, it was sappy, it was cliché and it stretched the boundaries of reality as is befitting the rom-com genre. It’s also been a minute since a good romantic comedy has been released, and The Other Zoey managed to get an 80% on Rotten Tomatoes, so it’s a solid film.
October has pretty much passed, and though we can assume a week of layover, with plenty of scary movie marathons and leftover candy munching, by the end of this week we’ll all probably realize it’s time to move on. Personally, I’ve always enjoyed November — we’re not quite at finals and we get a full week of break. Fall isn’t over, as well, which is something to feel good about.
There is an infestation. No, it’s not the Paris bedbugs. It’s Taylor Swift. You’ve all heard of her. She’s on the radio, she’s on your Instagram feed, she is everywhere.
Here in the Arts Section, we hope everyone has had a restful Fall Break (or at least just got in a good nap or two). Now that we’re coming into the second half of the semester, I think everybody is feeling a bit overwhelmed. So why not take a moment to escape from it all with a new movie or book release, or get away from campus for a bit and spend a night out with some friends?
Rap artist Rick Ross and pop rock band COIN performed in this year’s Hoptoberfest concert on Oct. 14. To be honest, ahead of this concert, I had never heard of either Rick Ross or COIN. Their most well-known tracks, “Talk Too Much” by COIN and “Hustlin’” by Rick Ross, were vaguely familiar to me, but not to the extent that I could sing along or shout the lyrics at a concert. However, I figured that a free concert was a free concert, so I went.
On the third day of the annual Hoptoberfest, “Show Day,” eleven student groups performed, including seven a capella groups. Hoptoberfest is run by the Hopkins Student Organization for Programming (HOP).
Following Hoptoberfest, hopefully, the entertainment bug has bit campus! October has been a great month for arts and entertainment so far and continues to give us great releases each week.
Juggling classes and exams in college while also maintaining a social life and good mental health can be challenging (I’m honestly exhausted thinking and writing about it). Because of this, JHU ¡Baila!, the University’s only Latin dance team, really stands out for how it embraces the importance of this balance. They offer a welcoming space for Hopkins students to feel connected to each other, their Latin roots and the world of Latin dance.
Can you feel that? The leaves are turning orange, the air is getting a bit chilly and Kevin Feige is knocking on your door letting you know there is another Marvel Studios release. Time to blow the dust off my Disney+ account to watch Loki's season two premiere.
The Hopkins Student Involvement Fair is overwhelming to say the least. It’s stuffy, you are elbowing your way through dozens of people and it seems like there is no end. By the 30-minute mark, the exhaustion hits and the clubs slowly become a blur. The point is, it is exhausting to find an organization where you belong, a club that is entirely unique. In this respect, the Dunbar Baldwin Hughes (DBH) Theatre Company sets itself apart from many.
