Stories from the January 22, 1998 issue of the GW Hatchet.

Fallen wastes viewers’ time

To declare Fallen , the new Warner Brothers film starring Denzel Washington (The Preacher’s Wife), the year’s worst movie would be unfair. After all, the year has just begun. To place this film among the decade’s worst might be more appropriate. Fallen , surprisingly, is written by the talented Nicholas Kazen, who also wrote the […]

The invitation comes after the museum’s board of directors initially rejected Arafat’s request. In the aftermath of waves of criticism from the public, as well as from high-level U.S. government officials, the board reversed its […]
