The Hopkins School of Public Health (SPH) posted a parody of Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion’s hit song and video “WAP” on their social media accounts on Dec. 15. The video featured members of the Mental Notes, a comedy a capella group at the Homewood Campus.
Citizen Kane is hailed as the greatest film of all time. Mank, in one of the most unexpected and idiosyncratic ways possible, tells an equally remarkable story of the process behind the film. Helmed by director David Fincher and written by his late father Jack Fincher, Mank had been in the works for thirty years prior to its December release on Netflix.
Almost a year after Greta Gerwig released her take on Louisa May Alcott’s 1868 classic novel, Little Women has returned to our screens once again. This time, it’s in the form of an audio-play, courtesy of the Barnstormers. Having chosen the show way back in the spring semester, before the University announced that this fall would be completely online, the group lucked out in picking a show that, as producer Deb Weidman described, is “so story driven, so text driven, so character driven,” and could easily be translated to the audio format.
Writing a content warning for Big Mouth feels almost impossible, but please be warned that this article will discuss a lot of things that are very disgusting and exceedingly sexual, the vast majority of which involve cartoon characters between the ages of 12 and 14.
Life is tough right now for Americans, and social media and politics are no small part of that difficulty. The COVID-19 pandemic and 2020 presidential election would have been frustrating even without the avalanche of misinformation surrounding both of them. If you’re as exhausted by fake news and misleading social media posts as I am, read on.
I was a sophomore in high school when Hamilton hit Broadway and suddenly made my love of American history and musical theater “cool.” I won’t bore you with the details of my fandom, but I follow the unbelievably talented original cast and their post-Hamilton careers with interest. Whenever they come out with something new, I am sure to check it out. So, you can imagine my excitement when I learned that Leslie Odom Jr.’s (aka Aaron Burr, sir) The Christmas Album was coming out. He’d released his jazzy Simply Christmas in 2016.
I recently watched the latest depiction of factitious disorder imposed on another (FDIA) — also known as Munchausen syndrome by proxy — in film and television: Hulu’s original thriller Run, directed by Aneesh Chaganty and written by him and Sev Ohanian.
Among the slew of Christmas movies Netflix has recently churned out comes a messy, simply bad holiday romance. It blends in well enough, masquerading as a fun, funny, festive flick. But Holidate is none of these things — though, boy, does it try really, really hard to be. Its formulaic premise is essentially all the plot that the movie has: Two strangers decide to be each other’s “holidates” and end up falling in love.
With an official hybrid plan for the spring semester released, most of us can’t wait to return to campus. While there are many exciting opportunities to look forward to, why wait? What if you can’t return come spring 2021? There are many opportunities available now for you to enjoy in Baltimore, both in person and remotely.
Last Friday, Brian Eno released Film Music 1976 – 2020, his first-ever compilation of music for film and television. This album spans five decades of his work in cinema, all the way from music he wrote for the 1976 movie Sebastiane, to his score for We Are as Gods, a documentary released earlier this year.
The baby factory demands its revenue. Natsuki and all who are around her know this expectation. They must produce a baby at all costs because society must be prolonged, and the cycle must continue.
The Writing Seminars department is nationally renowned for its stellar program and professors. Although some of those prominent in the department are on the older side, there is a constant flow of younger talent coming through the ranks. Nobody is a more emphatic example of this than Assistant Professor Danielle Evans, who just released her third book, The Office of Historical Corrections, and was recently profiled by the New York Times.
There’s a reason that they say to never meet your heroes — they’re sure to disappoint you.
“If I could have every thought / As though for the first time / I’d never get sick of / The patterns of my mind / But I am stuck / I am stuck.” So begins Someone New, Helena Deland’s recently released album.
Can chess make good TV? The surprising answer, as Netflix’s The Queen’s Gambit proves, is unequivocally yes. Perhaps only when it’s a drama as well-executed as this one, though.
Blood of Zeus is Netflix’s newest original anime series. Released in late October, the series combines anime-style animation with themes and characters from Greek mythology.
On the night of Oct. 30, the Hopkins Stand-Up Comedy Club (fondly known as SUCC) held its third annual Halloween comedy show, entitled, “Stand-Up Comedy Halloween Show III (This Time It's Personal).” Needless to say, this show took place virtually for the first time ever via YouTube livestream with the performers and a few audience members present on a Zoom call. Some of the members of the club continued their tradition of dressing up for the show, with costumes including a baby Yoda, a blue wig and a colorful unicorn hood.
Most of us, myself included, have surrendered to the monotony of an exclusive fall/winter pajama collection. It could very much be that the connective energy of the current digital space allows us to remain creatively engaged from home.
Of all the cooking shows in the world, the one I was the most excited to see was The Great British Baking Show, which released its newest season last month on Netflix (with new episodes out every week). It’s one of my favorites; there’s something about its blend of warmth, camaraderie and relative lack of competitiveness (and tons of sugar) that sets it apart from the fiery spirit and tense drama of other cooking shows. Considering that it’s become an international phenomenon, currently in its 11th season, there appear to be a lot of people who share my fascination.
