The Unrealistic Portrayal of Teenagers in Movies and Shows

Elizabeth Grimes

If you say that you haven’t found yourself mirroring the amazing glamorous lives of the people you see on screen, then you’re lying. We’ve all wanted to be smart like Rory Gilmore, rich like Blair Waldorf, or adventurous like the Pogues and live the same as so many other popular characters. From the millions of TV shows and movies available to watch, some really stand out and make a large impact on our generation. Teen-oriented series have grown to be incredibly popular over the last few decades. These media can have amazing plotlines, actors, and representation, but very few do a good job of illustrating realistic teenage lives.

Movie Review: House of Gucci

By Ben King

6/10

“Father, son, and house of Gucci”, proclaims Lady Gaga in the very first trailer for Universal’s House Of Gucci, a true crime biographical drama about the assassination of Maurizio Gucci. The instantly iconic – and memeable line from Gaga cemented the film as one of the most anticipated releases of 2021. With big names attached to the project (Ridley Scott, Adam Driver, Jared Leto, Al Pacino), House Of Gucci looked to be a delectable thanksgiving treat. Alas, the film committed the biggest cardinal sin in Hollywood history – being a bore.

Victorious, The Breakfast Club & Being Critical

By Christina Dinh

Recently, I’ve been getting a lot of Victorious clips recommended to me. They’ve brought me a wave of nostalgia, but hadn’t pushed me to actually revisit the show until I saw a clip from the 2012 episode The Breakfast Bunch – an homage to the movie, The Breakfast Club. I used to be a huge fan of both Victorious and The Breakfast Club. I decided, why not rewatch it? I expected to feel nostalgic and have a few laughs, not to craft an entire analysis on the importance of being critical of the media we consume.

Seasonal Cinema

By Benny Streeter

Gusts of autumn wind grace your ankles as the dark-red leaves blow by, you sit in tranquility with a clear mind and a warm heart. This is the effect of a perfect October film. The complete immersion in a story that is told during the most romantic month of the year, the smile that finds its way to you through the thoughts of happier times. Many may ignore the opportunity to enjoy October films as much as I do but the passion I hold is in no way exclusive.
