More than just ‘Another News Story’

Another News Story begins with the image of four figures fleeing in the dead of night. Visible only in the headlights of an oncoming vehicle, we quickly realize the figures are a father walking frantically with his three children. It is 2015, and they are Syrian refugees struggling to find a way into Germany. On March… Keep Reading

From the Viewpoint: Mosaica taught me how to love dance

I’m going to be honest—I know next to nothing about dance. It was therefore with some measure of anxiety that I attended the Mosaica Dance Company’s annual spring showcase. Of course the show would be good, of that I had very little doubt. The problem was instead how to write about something of which I… Keep Reading

The Riverdale teens are out of hand and need to be stopped

Riverdale is an absurd, ridiculous show that I couldn’t possibly force myself to stop watching. Every Thursday, I sit for 45 minutes shouting and cackling at these crazy teens on my TV. I end each episode baffled, both at the show’s ridiculousness, and my own powerlessness to quit. Riverdale, now nearing the end of its second… Keep Reading

You think you’re better than me, kid?

The McGill Tribune is excited to introduce guest columnist Gino Adamson, A&E editor Dylan’s recently retired uncle. His interests include going to the movies, being naked longer than comfortable in gym locker rooms, large khaki pants, hanging out at the barber shop, and hitting on young waitresses.

A Wrinkle In Time is a fresh faced children’s movie

Recent dialogue surrounding the new film adaptation of Madeleine’s L’Engle’s classic book, A Wrinkle in Time, pits the film’s quality against its desire to be an inclusive big budget production. Is it good merely because of this prerogative? Is that proper criticism? It’s a fair question. Critics are hailing the Disney film as a progressive… Keep Reading

Bring Your Own Juice is an oasis in McGill’s comedy desert

“McGill is pretty dry when it comes to comedy,” said Bring Your Own Juice’s (BYOJ) producer Abbey Hipkin, after the final performance of their three-night live show on March 17 at the Mainline Theatre. BYOJ, a self-proclaimed “ground-up” sketch comedy troupe, and McGill’s only sketch comedy troupe, shattered that assumption with witty, topical, and sometimes… Keep Reading

Reanimating the corpse of trap music

There was a time, not too long ago, when it seemed that Lil Yachty was the future. He looked and sounded like a radically new type of rapper, happiest when crooning over samples of cartoon theme songs, his bars lighthearted and youthful. He entered the mainstream with his 2016 mixtape Lil Boat charting at number 106… Keep Reading

The most egregious snubs from our list of the most egregious Oscar snubs

Due to the significant outrage sparked by our previous “Oscar Snubs” list, and the end of Oscar season forecasting a barren eight months for movie thinkpieces, The McGill Tribune is proud to present our latest innovation in the Oscar-related content you crave.

‘American Utopia’ insists that everything will be ok

American Utopia might be David Byrne’s first solo record in 14 years, but the former Talking Heads frontman has been hard at work on an eclectic mix of side projects since the 2004 release of his last album, Grown Backwards. Perhaps the most intriguing of his ventures is the launch of his website Reasons to be… Keep Reading
