While Dartmouth is a small school, it has a generous range of arts facilities. The campus boasts countless organizations dedicated to the arts -- too many to cover here. This article and the College's orientation activities can give you a brief overview of arts on campus, but the best strategy is to dive in and pursue your passion. You'll be surprised at the depth of the offerings -- and if you're exploring uncharted waters, it's easy to create your own opportunities.
"Legally Blonde" boasts a cute pun in the title, a cute premise and a cute star in Reese Witherspoon. With the lovability market cornered, this film tries to be something more. But in contrast to Elle Woods, the enterprising law student played by Witherspoon, "Legally Blonde" fails just when you expect it to succeed.
Video-game movies do not enjoy a proud heritage. "Super Mario Bros.," "Mortal Kombat" and the like are, inevitably, unwatchable garbage.
I recently signed up to review the worst of Hollywood's latest dreck as a public service for The Dartmouth's readers -- I watch a few horrible movies, suffer through their inadequacies and write about them to save you from a similar fate.
What is the most terrifying line in all of cinema?
NBC's new quiz show, "Weakest Link," has been called a cross between ABC's "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire" and CBS's "Survivor," but this summary does injustice to an innovative show that has enough going for it on its own.
Watching an episode of Comedy Central's new series "That's My Bush!" is like eating an Italian sub from Blimpie's -- you know it isn't good, but there are so many factors at work that you're not sure why.
I'm sick of George Lucas.
The critics have reached a consensus. 2000 was a bad year for Hollywood, and so far 2001 isn't much better. With movie audiences becoming increasingly desperate for decent entertainment, where can they turn?
"Cast Away" is a film that sets up a concept efficiently and meets all of its potential, yet it still only merits three stars. Because in this work that draws so many contrasts between the comforts of home and the harshness of nature, the most notable dichotomy is between the film's powerful midsection and its flaccid ending.
Editor's Note -- In conjunction with the release of Universal's "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," The Dartmouth is featuring a three-part series on the story and its author, Dr. Seuss -- also known as Theodor Geisel '27. A review of the film runs today, followed by a look at Dr. Seuss's time at Dartmouth on Tuesday and a feature on the many faces of "The Grinch" on Wednesday.
Not many directors dare to make a movie about golf. It's hard work to make the game work for the cinema -- there can be drama in a golf match, but it is a drama that develops slowly, ploddingly over the four hours required by a typical 18-hole round.
Last January, I gave a harsh review to an upstart sitcom on Fox, boldly declaring that it's simply "not funny." That sitcom went on to become the biggest hit that Fox has seen since "The Simpsons."
Ed Stevens gets fired from a high-powered New York law firm for misplacing one comma in a 500-page contract, comes home to find his wife sleeping with the mailman, drives back to his boyhood home (the small town of Stuckeyville), kisses his high-school sweetheart, purchases an ailing bowling alley.
"You are holding the future of the Macintosh in your hands."
As is the case with any major event this year, the Summer Olympics in Sydney have a heightened air of importance about them. After all, these are the first Games of the Millennium! They're an indication of things to come in the -- gasp -- future!
A little jealousy can go a long way. In this case, I became green last Thursday when an 18-year-old college student made his way to the hotseat on that show of shows, "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire." Rapidly feeling my next birthday approaching, that toll-free qualification number popped into my head, teasing me -- "If only you had tried a little harder."
It was tough, as a reviewer, to see a movie called "Loser." The title cleverly puts its audience in a merciful mood, setting them to search for redeeming qualities. I found it hard to retain my critical objectivity -- after all, who wants to be the bully that kicks a loser when it's down?
Interested in the arts? In the first week you're here, Dartmouth will try to convince you that the college has endless resource to offer the arts-inclined student.
It's hard to describe the atmosphere at a Macworld Expo, for this isn't your standard trade show. There are the product announcements, free literature, buttons and pens that you would expect, but there's something unique to Macworld -- the people.
