The Grapevine

From witchcraft to pop-music-infused Shakespeare, performances by various UB groups promise to end the school year with a bang. 

“Bridgerton,” a TV drama available to stream on Netflix. 

The love and loss of high society

In a lovely testament to love and loss, “Bridgerton” adopted a slow-burn approach toward guilt complexes and the inner turmoil of whether we should put our responsibilities to ourselves or not.

Nigo plays it safe on ‘I Know Nigo!’

The album’s less-than-expected quality and innovation feels all the more disappointing because it features some of the biggest talents around and Nigo’s creativity, exemplifying that it takes not just creators, but a desire to adventure into the unknown in order to create a masterpiece.

“Turning Red” centers around 13-year-old Mei Ling as she navigates her hereditary ability to transform into a giant red panda when experiencing strong emotions.

‘Turning Red’ turned out great

With a Godzilla-esque red panda, the best fictional boy band since Spongebob’s Boys Who Cry and candid discussions surrounding getting a woman’s first period, Pixar’s “Turning Red” presents a surprisingly hilarious and heartfelt story. 

Tom Holland stars in “Uncharted,” a 2022 action-adventure film. 

Fortune forgone

Evoking delight and nostalgia with adventure and near-fantasy, “Uncharted” brings to life the treasure-hunting whimsy of familiar favorites such as “National Treasure” and “Pirates of the Caribbean.”
