DEVLIN HALL — After a long and strenuous chemistry lecture, hundreds of students fled a packed Devlin 008. While most students were crying over the upcoming test, or scribbling down the last words uttered by the professor, one student, Pret Entious (MCAS ’25) was spotted doing something completely different: rating the lecture on his prized Letterboxd account.
Entious told the Classic, “I mean, the lectures are so long they might as well be a film. Taking O-Chem has honestly taken up a lot of my very valuable film time, and so I had to find other ways to enrich my inner artist. Us artists, we’re all fucked up, and film helps me cope with the despair of being human.” While being interviewed, Entious asked to light up a cigarette, and took long, pensive drags throughout the conversation.
Classmate S. Tressed (MCAS ’24), divulged “Pret is always on twitter and Letterboxd during our lectures. He sits right in front of me, so it honestly is pretty distracting. It’s like, I’m trying to take notes on directions of carbon containing compounds, and Pret is reviewing the subaru commercial he saw last night on Twitter.”
The Classic gained access on Entious’s letterboxd reviews, and we have published some down below:
“Touching on the complexities of human life and what makes up our world, Lecture 37 really took me for a wild ride. This film starred a stellar cast, including a very studious young lad in the third row from the back (me). While the dialogue dragged for 50 minutes, this film shifted my perspective on what I should do with my life.” -Review of Chemistry Lecture 37
“TBH didn’t really get it, it kind of confused me. Overall not a great movie but the raccoon was cool I guess. Made me want a bagel” -Review of Everything Everywhere, All At Once
“If someone says they like this movie more than me, they would be lying. It shows that humanity is still good, and brings an entirely new culture into light.This film is about perseverance, grit, hard work, and is an inspiration to manyTHIS is cinema. THIS is why I love films.” -Review of Borat
