REVIEW: ‘Emily in Paris’ is the show we love to hate

Cierra Noffke, Culture Editor October 17, 2020
The series is a frothy 10-episode ode to millennials and an American ideal of Paris. There is little in the show that holds ties to reality. It’s as if the show’s creator, Darren Star—known for “Sex and the City”—sought to create a fantasy experience completely removed from the realities of being a 20-something abroad in Paris.

Along with traditional multiplexes, Thalian Hall closed their theater in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

All of the events surrounding the theaters’ circumstances simply affirm the notion of an uncertain future for theatrical exhibition—especially at a time when theatrical exhibition had already been in trouble prior to the pandemic.

Winners and losers from the 2020 Emmy Awards

Brenna Flanagan, Editor-in-Chief September 23, 2020

A pandemic can’t stop the incoming award season. The 2020 Emmy Awards aired last night amid a predictable winner-lineup, overdone quarantine jokes and added stress about the upcoming election. Jimmy...

REVIEW: 'The Social Dilemma' is the movie 'Cuties' wanted to be

REVIEW: ‘The Social Dilemma’ is the movie ‘Cuties’ wanted to be

William Becker, Staff Writer September 22, 2020
“The Social Dilemma” is a thrilling look into what is wrong with the world today and how technology influences it. There’s a classic narrative of “phones are bad and kids should play outside,” but “The Social Dilemma” takes a much more striking and unique look into the demons of social media.
REVIEW: 'Unpregnant' is a road-trip to familiar tropes

REVIEW: ‘Unpregnant’ is a road-trip to familiar tropes

Stephen Lambros, Staff Writer September 21, 2020
Unpregnant is a perfectly serviceable film that many viewers will enjoy. The script is whip-smart, there are fun performances, and the subject it discusses is timely. It could have been a little more original, and it could have handled its subject with a little more nuance, but for what it’s worth, if HBO Max receives more films that are this well-rounded, they could certainly compete with the other streaming services
REVIEW: 'Cuties' is the opposite of cute

REVIEW: ‘Cuties’ is the opposite of cute

William Becker, Staff Writer September 18, 2020
If the Maïmouna Doucouré, the director of "Cuties", really wanted to comment on the over-sexualization of children, she should not have done so by putting heavy camera-emphasis on genitals and thrusting motions. The glamorization of this is not decreased at all by covering it in music that glorifies sex just as much as the movie does. It isn’t right, not even remotely so.

“Wilmington on Fire” panelists discuss white supremacy, reparations, and why your vote matters

Cierra Noffke, Culture Editor September 18, 2020
The conversation spans the width of various touchy topics—the 1898 Coup’s lingering debt, the “trend” of the Black Lives Matter movement, the responsibility of white people—and each panelist offers their thoughtful responses, bolstered by their years of research and experience.

REVIEW: “I’m Thinking of Ending Things” is a cinematic brain freeze

Stephen Lambros, Staff Writer September 13, 2020
Charlie Kaufman’s latest foray into cerebral cinema, I’m Thinking of Ending Things, a film that is perhaps the least accessible film to the general public that Netflix has ever released—which in turn makes it their most exciting original film to date.
REVIEW: UNCW’s “Evening with Eric Andre”

REVIEW: UNCW’s “Evening with Eric Andre”

William Becker, Staff Writer September 6, 2020
If there’s something to be said about “An Evening With Eric Andre,” it felt like a really bad episode of the Joe Rogan Podcast and I mean that deeply and passionately. DJ Douggpound served as something of a moderator and sampler, while Eric Andre lazily answered questions from students asking for advice about how to deal with the stresses of COVID and becoming an entertainer.

Mulan’s $30 price tag: Disney rolls the dice

Stephen Lambros, Staff Writer September 5, 2020
The novelty of a big film readily available through streaming may be hard to resist—and at a time when ticket and concession prices continue to skyrocket, families may very well see $30 as a ‘steal’ of a price worth taking advantage of.
