Bring Back ‘Silent Library’

This is the reboot that the world needs and deserves Happy 2020, everybody. We did it. We made it, somehow. As the sun sets on the dumpster fire that was 2019 it dawns on a new year, and with it comes the possibility that maybe, just maybe, things will be a little better. The term “things” in this context encompasses a whole buttload of items that need improving, the political climate, the actual climate, y’know, just all that big existential stuff.

Somali to Mori no Kamisama Episode 1 Impression

Somali to Mori no Kamisama is about a human girl and golem on a journey searching for humans. On this episode, Somali and Golem visits a big city. Oh no, this series gives me the similar vibe as Uchi no Ko no Tame naraba, Ore wa Moshikashitara Maou mo Taoseru kamo Shirenai from last Summer season because both series features a dad and their adapted daughter in a fantasy world. Although, the introduction and beautiful world setting seems to be much more interesting than Uchi no Ko no Tame naraba...

Police Trap #6 - Jack Kirby art & cover

Jack Kirby Police Trap v1 #6, 1956 - In the final issue of this crime series, Jack Kirby not only contributes the cover, but five interior stories as well. All are drawn in the artist's distinctive style and approach, occasionally hampered by too much dialogue (see interior page below). "The Debt" and "Third Degree" are more visually arresting than the others, aided by their strong opening [Author: Ted Ignacio]

7 Shows On Netflix To Watch Instead Of ‘Friends’

Please, please branch out, I beg Netflix has teased the departure of the hit sitcom Friends from its streaming service for a few years now, and it seemed for a while like we were just stuck in one, big, never-ending cycle of “Friends is gone!” and “ Actually no Friends is still here!” Eventually it started to feel a little like the boy who cried wolf, which was only amplified by similar situation The Office has been in, where every six months or so we’re hit with talk that Netflix is goin...

Absolute Legend Martin Scorsese Has No Interest in Watching ‘Joker’

Whatever you think of Joker (it’s fine!), you have to admit that Todd Phillips’ dark, violent take on Batman’s arch-nemesis owes a considerable debt to the work of director Martin Scorsese. Scorsese was even mentioned as a possible producer at one point. You would think that might inspire The Irishman filmmaker to watch the movie, but you’d be wrong. According to Scorsese himself, he has yet to watch Joker, and probably never will. Before we get into this, let me just say that I mostly enjoy...

Chrissy Teigen Calls Out Internet Troll Who Accused Her of Editing a Swimsuit Photo

Chrissy Teigen is not humoring the haters in the new year. The Internet’s clap back queen had some choice words for a troll that decided to comment with decidedly negative energy on one of Teigen’s recent Instagram posts. The photo, an image of Teigen playing in a pool with her daughter Luna, prompted someone on the Internet to comment: “that’s a horrible photo shop [sic] chrissy,” in seeming reference to the way that Teigen’s body looked under water. Teigen suffered no fools, however, respondi...

‘Uncut Gems’ Has the Seventh Most F-Bombs in Cinema History

Uncut Gems, the movie that opens by zooming out of Adam Sandler’s butthole, is a big hit. Not only is it a critical darling, but it’s also one of the biggest successes in the history of A24 films. And here’s another achievement to boast about: it ranks in seventh place on a list of films with the most F-words. It joins the company of not one but two Martin Scorsese movies, Spike Lee’s Summer of Sam, two different documentaries about cursing, and more. Screen It!, a site parents use to find o...

Reading Isaac Asimov at 100

In his recently published book “Astounding,” the author Alec Nevala-Lee brings American science fiction’s Golden Age back into focus by following four key figures: John W. Campbell, Robert A. Heinlein, L. Ron Hubbard — and Isaac Asimov, who officially turned 100 today (his exact birth date was unknown). Nevala-Lee’s warts-and-all portrait paints Asimov — known to his fans as the Good Doctor — far more sympathetically than the genre’s other founding fathers. He’s charming and self-deprecating, ge...

Kevin Feige Misses Marvel’s Underdog Days, Says a Transgender Character is Heading to the MCU, Updates on ‘Shang-Chi’ & More

It’s not controversial to suggest that Kevin Feige‘s run at Marvel Studios is the most impressive aspect of mainstream pop culture storytelling of the past ten years. But Feige doesn’t want fans to look at Marvel’s successful track record and just blindly accept everything that the studio releases. In a new Q&A, the acclaimed producer talks about continuing to work hard to make the best movies possible, and offers updates on Eternals, Shang-Chi, future Disney+ shows, and more. Feige recently...

Women film directors are calling the shots more than ever, but ‘more progress needed,’ 2 new reports say  

More women directed big movies in 2019 than ever, according to two different academic studies released Thursday. The figures are still well below representative equity compared to U.S. population demographics, but they do seem to signal an improvement in the historically male-dominated field. USC’s Annenberg Inclusion Initiative’s report “Inclusion in the Director’s Chair” found 12 women helmed films on last year’s top 100 grossing chart, while San Diego State University’s Center for the Study o...

Special event operating tip: ID once an hour when using a 1×1 call

On the CWops mailing list, we’ve been talking about the use of special event callsigns. One fellow noted: Operators using US 1×1 calls are required to identify with their own call periodically … every hour I think. I honestly didn’t know this, so just to be sure, I looked it up. Here’s the rule: Section 97.119 (d). When transmitting in conjunction with an event of special significance, a station may substitute for its assigned call sign a special event call sign as shown for that station for th...

Todd Philips Thinks It’s Joker’s Themes, Not the Character, That Made It a Hit

One of the most mindbogglingly strange things about Todd Phillips’ Joker is how unfunny the movie’s titular clown criminal is, something that’s in rather stark contrast with the character’s depiction in other media. The Joker’s a deranged mass murderer, yes, but he’s always been able to crack a legitimate joke here…Read more...
