Noir film achieves 'Pulp Fiction' appeal

·

"$15 million is not money. Money is what you take to the grocery store. Money is what you get out of an ATM. $15 million is not money. It's a motive waiting for someone to take it." It's this kind of dialogue that made Quentin Tarantino famous. Well, that and a lot of guns.

Got meat? Has PETA gone to far?

·

From the makers of the "Got beer?" campaign comes the new "Got Prostate Cancer?" campaign, spearheaded by large billboards with the face of recently afflicted New York City Mayor Rudy Guiliani. Pretty funny, eh? I mean, Guiliani could die from this. That's just downright hilarious.

AU makes deal with military and defuses bombs

·

This week in 1942, AU signed a contract with the War Department that allowed the government office to use office space in Hurst Hall for its Division for the Selection and Procurement of Instructional Materials. The office space had previously been used as the school's bookstore, but was vacant since the store relocated.

Former ATV star Chris Noll goes Wylde on TV

Scott Rosenberg: How's it going? Chris Wylde: Pretty good man. SR: You're all over my television. CW: It's nice to be all over television sets and not just be on ATV. You know what I mean? SR: Yeah, I can understand. CW: Like, you know, in Junior year, there were a couple of weeks there where we were literally the only thing on, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, you know what I'm saying.

Music Quicktakes

OMD "Menace to Society" (Atlantic) Hip hop has become as ubiquitous in American culture as McDonald's and Coca Cola. The fashion and music of hip hop have left their mark on everything from the designs of Tommy Hilfiger to the chart-topping songs of Everlast and G Love And Special Sauce, whose pop-rap fusion is proving to be quite lucrative.

DPA seeks new audiences

AU's Experimental Theatre is an unassuming building. Many students sit in economics or history classes in the Butler Instructional Center completely unaware that theater majors are leaping, lunging and singing right above their heads. Despite its location, however, the theater will see plenty of foot traffic this season, from patrons and performers alike.

'Nurse Betty' is a comedic break from actors' usual roles

"Nurse Betty" is not your average comedy. It's not even your average film. Rather, it's a bit of all different genres rolled into one. It goes from being a screwball comedy, to a dreamlike fantasy, to a hit man film, back to a fantasy and so on. It also, along with this year's "The Cell" and a few others, is a true "love it or hate it" film.

Who are you?

Are you a mad scientist? Are you high maintenance? What's your loony past life? Perplexing questions, I know. As the lengthy syllabi pile up and new textbooks gather dust under lofted beds, how better to waste time than to test your mental capabilities with online quizzes care of Emode.

A baseball summer swoon sparks interest in politics

I've been studying the presidential race pretty closely over the last month, and now I can pretty much sum up my conclusions on the candidates with about a sentence for each. George W. Bush doesn't know much about anything but would appoint pretty good advisers that would presumably allow the White House to run reasonably smoothly.

Summer cinema recap

Ah, 2000, a new century... and one of the least memorable summer film seasons ever. Usually, there are maybe five or six truly bad films, a lot of enjoyable eye candy and a couple gems. This summer, it was either really good or disappointing crap (most of the latter).

Hot Coffee lawsuit

I was recently made aware of a lawsuit against a fast-food restaurant. A woman purchased a cup of coffee in a drive through, stuck the piping hot Java in between her knees and drove off. As she jetted from the scene, the hot coffee spilled, causing third degree burns.

Film Review: "Barcelona"

If you are someone who likes movies with a plot, character development, and continuity, "Barcelona" is not the movie for you. This new film written and directed by Whit Stillman, also the creator of the critically "disclaimed" "Metropolitan," is quite reminiscent of his past work ... unfortunately.

Please warn us first

I recently purchased a grilled cheese sandwich. All I wanted was some bread and cheese. Simple enough. After being handed the sandwich, I was on it like bats on a beehive hairdo. I wasn't expecting anything too fancy. No reason to call in Pasquale. However, they really went all out.

An Introduction to "Killing Time"

A warm hello to the freshmen and all of those people who only read The Eagle the first week of every school year. This column is entitled "Killing Time" primarily because that is all that its creators have done while writing it. The column is about nothing in particular and we like it that way.

Music Review: "The Crow" Soundtrack

The music of "The Crow" is so interwoven with the film that it is much more than the normal filler between dialogue. In an interview two-and-a-half years ago, Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits said he disliked soundtrack work because the music often became trapped by the sounds and circumstances of the film.

Levellers fight censorship

Politics has rotated around the rock 'n' roll music world since Elvis' pelvis was first censored by the Ed Sullivan Show. Through the "Make Love, Not War" slogans of the Hippies, to the shocking and politically-inspired lyrics of the Clash and Jello Biafra, Rock 'n' Roll has often taken up both cause and controversy.

Music Review: Public Enemy

"If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything." So begins Public Enemy's sixth album, "Muse Slick N Hour Mess Age." True to the quote, Public Enemy has always stood their ground amidst media controversy, little radio airplay, white supremacy, and ignorance in general.
