‘Hubie Halloween:’ the least terrifying horror movie for this year’s holiday

“Hubie Halloween” is more of a comedy than a horror movie. However, the main character does get scared a lot. This movie is great to watch to give a little humor to a long day. It was released this Oct. 7 and can be found on Netflix.

What we’re watching on Netflix: ‘American Vandal’

“American Vandal” nostalgically epitomizes modern American high school, backing painfully familiar memories to college students. As a Netflix crime mockumentary, the two seasons follow high school students in pursuit of a different “vandal,” venturing deep into high school drama and uncovering seriously funny scandals. 

‘Letter To You,’ a simple, meaningful revival of the E-Street Band

I don’t think it’s a stretch to say that everyone who calls the Garden State home has, at the very least, heard of “The Boss,” Bruce Springsteen. And now, the Boss is back — though he’s definitely a bit different.

Rico Nasty gives virtual performance and hints upcoming collaboration

Hip-hop artist Rico Nasty performed as a part of the College Union Board’s (CUB) “On Your Campus Virtual Tour” on Wednesday, Oct. 14, at 9 p.m. Rico Nasty blends a unique style of hip-hop with her self-described “sugar trap” genre. The show lasted about 45 minutes, followed by a brief Q&A session.

This week’s playlist: Nostalgic

There’s an image I can never really get out of my head: the boy in baggy jeans and a grown-out crew cut, also known as Chad Michael Murray in the millionth iteration of “A Cinderella Story.” The year is 2004 and I’ve probably never loved anything more than this jock-turned-Prince Charming and poet at heart, all fictional of course. He’s got that hard exterior but soft interior, the kind of personality that makes all the girls keep pictures of him in their lockers. Utterly unattainable.

ScreenAge, Ornamental and Cheyenne Dan: an inside look at college band culture

Whether it be through traditional art or a myriad of other forms, college campuses are typical epicenters of creativity. During the remote semester, college students have been looking for new ways to connect with their peers and regain a sense of community. Many have found this through their favorite student bands. Music is a way for local groups such as ScreenAge, Cheyenne Dan and Ornamental to express themselves.

‘Emily in Paris’ leaves viewers with mixed feelings

A show with travel, fashion, comedy and romance — what’s not to love, right? Netflix released its newest comedy-drama “Emily in Paris” on Oct. 2, and it was met with indifference from viewers who couldn’t tell if they binged it out of love or hate. 

‘The Women of Dolor’ create a space of inclusivity and enlightenment

In a time when conversation about women’s rights and minority groups is more pertinent than ever, many are sharing their voices with the world. Trisha Basak and Ambar Grullón, two students from the College, have teamed up to create a podcast titled “Women of Dolor,” which explores their experiences in American society through the eyes of intersectional minorities.

What we’re watching on Netflix: ‘Marriage Story’

“Marriage Story” is emotional, dramatic and full of heartwarming moments. The movie is a great one to watch if you need a cry.

This week’s playlist: addicted

Every time I hear the first guitar chord of “Can’t Stop” by the Red Hot Chili Peppers blare from speakers, a divine intervention takes place. My heart swells to Herculean proportions and starts pumping an extra liter of blood through my veins. My limbs spastically flail and dart in futile attempts to keep my dancing trunk in equilibrium, and my slightly smudged lenses through which I usually see the world are instantly replaced by a kaleidoscope of iridescent globules and blobs. 

‘Troubled Blood’ — more than the critics make it out to be

It wasn’t until the second novel — “The Silkworm” — written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith, that I realized that J.K. Rowling had grown up. I understood almost immediately after picking up that book (and stumbling upon a truly graphic scene) that her latest literary series about a modern London-based detective, was truly something special. “Troubled Blood,” the most recent installment in the “Cormoran Strike” series might very well be Rowling’s best work yet. 

Ava Max new release: is it ‘heaven’ or ‘hell?’

Ava Max is an up-and-coming singer/songwriter best known for her single, “Sweet But Psycho.” Following her hit song that was released in August of 2018 and has topped the charts since, she started recording her debut album “Heaven & Hell” which the 26-year-old released on Sept. 18.
