Everyone pretty much knows that Jack dies at the end of James Cameron’s famed Titanic. More or less, this fact has been accepted by fans and viewers -- but not without a fight. Titanic has been my favorite movie since the tender age of 9-years-old. So for 11 years (it feels like 84, to be honest), I’ve listened to friends and people on the Internet go on and on about how Jack could have fit on that wooden door with Rose, and that she was just being a snooty door-hogger.
There's no doubt that at AU, the stereotype of college students walking around campus in pajamas is pretty much busted. When I first came to this school, I was pretty excited to walk into class in an outfit I could have rolled out of bed in. I soon came to find that pretty much everyone here has an excellent fashion sense, and they display it well. I was never really that into fashion, so it defnitely felt like there was a lot of pressure to look good everyday. Now as a rising junior, I've come to discover that you don't need 500 fabulous pieces of clothing in your closet and you don't have to feel uncomfortable if you're not that into dressing up everyday.
After a long week, or when I want to escape, I find relaxation in sitting down and watching a romantic comedy. Some may argue that romantic comedies play into stereotypes, like falling in love too quickly with someone, and are made for teens and have no significant value. Despite these claims, romantic comedy is still a fun genre to indulge in when you want a laugh, a cry or a charming and kindhearted plot. I want to dedicate this week to shows and movies you watched while in high school, where you spent your days daydreaming about the perfect partner and extravagant life. Watching romcoms also a perfect Valentine’s Day activity!
Halloween is finally here, and what better way to spend the spookiest day of the year than with some Netflix and candy? Sadly, some of the classic childhood favorites aren’t on Netflix. I’m looking at you, “Hocus Pocus” and “Halloweentown.” But, this assorted list includes horror, absurdity, drama and classics, so there is an option for everyone.
A history theme is the name of the game this week. I have always been a history nerd, and could never understand how some people don’t find it interesting: it is all stories of intrigue, love, violence, sex, friendship, loyalty, drama, and betrayal. But though history classes may not be everyone’s cup of tea, historical (fiction and nonfiction) shows and movies are worth a look. To give you all a little taste of the great period shows and films on Netflix, I have picked a few of my favorites.
This week is all about detective work, mystery and camaraderie. Although some may find crime shows formulaic, they also serve as a good source of intrigue. Each episode may have a shocking murder, crime or peril, but more often than not, the characters themselves are emotionally and physically stable. In my opinion, this takes the emphasis off character drama and puts it on the mystery at hand. My suggestion is to add the shows and movies listed below to your Netflix queue, so you can watch them during times of stress or drama in your life.
With the academic year in full swing, we could all use some TV shows and movies to help combat the upcoming stress of classes and all-nighters. This set of recommendations are all about the ‘90s and early 2000s to help remind you that childhood and relaxation aren’t just things of the past.
