Iconic filmmaker shares wisdom to art students in ‘Make Trouble’

What makes a successful commencement speech? Perhaps the most crucial component is the speaker. Usually, the speaker must come from a background that meets the interests of the majority of the graduating class: while an 80-year-old litigator might excite pre-law students, biology majors might end up staring at their phones during the entire duration of the speech. With a […]


Lady Gaga wows as guest judge in ‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ season 9 premiere

It is truly mind boggling to see what “RuPaul’s Drag Race” (2009–present) has become over the last three years. Initially regarded as a queer parody of “America’s Next Top Model” (2003–2015; 2016–present), the show began as a tongue-in-cheek reality competition series that targeted primarily gay viewers. Today, with its integration of internet culture, “RuPaul’s Drag Race” […]


‘Feud’ explores ageism and sexism in Hollywood

Ryan Murphy has surely proved himself to be the hit maker of modern TV today, even more so than the beloved Shonda Rhimes. Between “Nip/Tuck” (2003-2010) “Glee” (2009-2015), “American Horror Story” (2011-present) and “American Crime Story” (2016-present), Murphy has defined and redefined the zeitgeist over and over again, each time bringing innovations to a medium that […]


Vlogging in the BuzzFeed era: more content, less substance

Any “Why I Left BuzzFeed” video […]

Daily’s 2017 Oscar Predictions: What to expect on Sunday night

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAgnx8RMVww&feature=youtu.be If one were to summarize the 2017 awards season with one word, it might as well be agitating. The season revealed the film industry’s own hypocrisy by failing to keep the promises it made at last year’s ceremony. From the racial controversy that followed “La La Land” (2016) to the questionable nominations of Casey Affleck […]


Yvonne’s stands out from other Boston restaurants with its lively atmosphere

When diners first step inside Yvonne’s, many of them might initially feel confused. The entrance to this restaurant between Downtown Crossing and Park Street is lined with barber chairs, mirrors and hair products over counters, resembling a hair salon. Patrons have to go through another door to enter the actual restaurant. The secret door serves its function as it […]

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) — referring to the group of complex disorders of brain development including autistic disorder, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder and Asperger syndrome — is found amongst 1 in 68 children in the United States. Although there are more than 2 million people diagnosed with ASD in the United States alone, these individuals are […]


‘20th Century Women’ is the feminist indie the 21st century needs

With so many established names attached to “20th Century Women” (2016), it seems unlikely that moviegoers would have any qualms about the quality of the film. After directing hits such as “Thumbsucker” (2005) and “Beginners” (2010), Mike Mills has proven himself to be a household name in the small budget film scene. Similar to the work of […]
