I love a good cookout every once in a while, but there’s nothing quite like a theatre cookout.

We had a matinee performance last Sunday, and I thought, why not have a cookout after the musical? The show would end around 4:30 p.m., and we could have a 5 p.m. cook out.

It was so much FUN! I really appreciate all the help I got from Rudy and Kevin. They’re really supportive of all the social and theatre endeavors of the theatre club.

We took up a cemented grilling area in the courtyard of the Union Townhouses and pretty much just enjoyed one of the first warm days of April.

We flew some kites, played tag and ate lots of food. It was a pot luck, so there was plenty to go around. We even got to hear Jacob Ward’s monologue from a play he’s in right now.

I appreciate that there aren’t just clubs at Mount Union. These aren’t organizations occupied by people who don’t see each other outside of their meetings. You find real friends here, and I’m always happy to hang out with them.

It was a great day with great people and great food, at a great place.

‘Drive’ Movie Review

‘Drive’ Movie Review

Read more

This past weekend, the University showed the movie Drive starring Ryan Gosling (the guy from the Notebook) at the Mount Union Theatre. This movie was made after the book, so I am assuming the book is better than the movie. I never actually read the book, but when are movies ever better than the book?

In the beginning of this movie, it felt like a 80s movie because of the font used and the music. The first scene had the driver, Gosling, driving a get away car for two robbers, so I once again assumed this movie was similar to the Transporter trilogy with Jason Statham, an action guy. It wasn’t. The Transporter trilogy is known for incredible action scenes where as this movie is more of a pure story line.

The majority of the beginning of the movie was just like the beginning of most movies. It was an introductory to the characters, who they are, what they do and why they are important to the movie. The driver was a silent man and an anti-hero type character with a sweet jacket. He lives in an apartment and he starts spending time with a young woman and her son. When her husband is released from jail is when the movie starts to get much more interesting.

This movie isn’t a typical American movie, probably because the director isn’t American, but that’s beside the point. It was much more about appreciating the story of the movie rather than ACTION, ACTION, ACTION!!! There was good driving, guns and blood, but that wasn’t the point of the movie, which is why I think some of my friends didn’t like the movie. The soundtrack of the movie was quite interesting as well.

I would recommend this movie to my friends who appreciate movies. I wouldn’t recommend this to my friends that don’t know a good movie when they see one. It’s modern and unpredictable. It’s got love and money, the simplest subject in most movies, yet it is still one of a kind.
