Watch Your Reading

We know the beginning of the year is rough. And if you’re a first- or second-year CC student (or a dreadfully unlucky SEAS senior), you’re most likely wishing you didn’t have to read that giant classic tome you were just assigned to finish by tomorrow. Can’t it just be summer again so you can binge watch […]

Storm’s blowing in, finals are blowing over, and Bwog movie maven Mark Hay has a few cinematic choices to accompany these first flakes of snow. Something about the vintage and the slightly outdated social norms of these films make them an endearing accompaniment to any night of cocoa and candy canes. Christmas in Connecticut (1945) […]

The semester is drawing to a close and it is time to squeeze the last drops of fun from our ragged lives before being sent back to the grind of finals. But the guilt of shirking our studies for a moment or two of revelry weighs heavily upon us. This is a time at which […]

Perhaps disheartened, always undaunted: Mark Hay returns with this week’s movie picks. So it would appear that the Manhattanville development project has hit a little snag this past week. And, coincidentally, that your reviewer has hit a few snags in his life as well. So this week, Bwog celebrates the unexpected hitches in life – […]

Mark Hay woke up from his food coma to bring you this week’s movie picks. On Thursday the bulk of the nation was out cold in a tryptophan-induced coma, dreaming the troubled dreams of the turkey. For Columbians, especially, these next few days – too short for real work, too long for real stress – […]

Netflix: Violence!

Movie Man Mark Hay is back, with a vengeance. A few days ago, a Columbia professor up and decked a female co-worker in the face. Totally uncalled for, totally unexpected, and totally scintillating violence. Somehow, as a result, your reviewer has spent the past week arguing the relative merits of violence in film and the […]

Mark Hay may not be a native New Yorker, but he’s taking steps in the right direction. Bloomberg wins New York. Sometimes it is hard to understand the city we live in. But certainly the last week, the introspection brought about by Bloomberg’s hegemony and victory, has given me the time to realize that, torn […]

It’s Halloween (cue spooky organ music riff du-da-duuuuuuu dudadalududu), so we all know what that means. Bwog’s Cinematic Summaries Bureau Chief Mark Hay is obligated by law (specifically, the infamous Carpathian Dracula Convention of 1935) to conjure up a spo-o-o-oky Halloween Netflix list, with  three spine-shivering tales of the supernatural. Bwa-ha-ha-ha! The Orphanage (2007) The […]

It’s another dark, grimy day in New York City, but Cinephile Extraordinaire Mark Hay thinks it’s a good night for a few sympathetically noir films. Laura (1944) Alright, so Laura isn’t exactly the pinnacle of noir. Rather than taking place on the grimy streets of New York, Otto Preminger limits the film to lavish penthouses. […]

Yes, Mark Hay can! This week the Senate Finance committee pushed out a neutered healthcare bill. And then thirty senators voted against a bill to block government contracts with companies that do not allow their employees to sue when raped by fellow employees. I guess last November’s hope water is wearing off, because it’s just […]

Bwog’s “surprised and humbled” film guy Mark Hay is back with this week’s movie recommendations. So Obama got a Nobel Peace prize – how very strange. One might be tempted to say that the Norwegians are just trying to have a bit of fun at the expense of Americans by placing our wonderful, but rather […]
