Interview: Spiral Director Darren Lynn Bousman on Crafting a Saw Spin-off

Spiral is now available on 4K UHD, Blu-ray, DVD, and digitally. The Saw spin-off stars Chris Rock and Samuel L. Jackson in the lead roles and is directed by Saw II-IV director Darren Lynn Bousman in his return to helming the horror series.

Unicorn Famous

Unicorn Famous is the thirteenth book in the series, collecting the ongoing Phoebe and Her Unicorn comic strip by Dana Simpson. I was surprised to see that it opens with a lengthy sequence about being able to be what you want when you grow up, even if that thing is a unicorn. Of course, they’re magical creatures, so maybe that makes sense, but to a human reader, it’s encouraging, reminding us that we have options and choices. It’s all handled [...]

YouTube Deepfake Expert Who Adjusted ‘Mandalorian’ VFX Hired by ILM

You’d think that a huge company like ILM would bristle at a YouTuber “correcting” their work, but it turns out it’s quite the opposite. Instead of being angry at a content creator who deep-faked a better version of Luke Skywalker‘s surprise return at the end of Season 2 of The Mandalorian they hired them. Shamook has made a name for himself for implementing deepfake technology in his videos, with the Luke glow-up being one of the bigger hits, racking up over 2 million views. Shamook let slip...

‘Jungle Cruise’ Star Jack Whitehall on Playing Disney’s First Major Gay Character: “We Totally Understood the Significance of It”

Over the past few years, Disney has attempted to be more inclusive by creating more progressive characters compared to their famous films dating back to the ’40s. Their latest film, Jungle Cruise, takes a huge step towards representation by featuring its first outwardly gay character. In Jungle Cruise, a live-action adventure film based on the theme park ride of the same name, Jack Whitehall plays McGregor Houghton.

Virtual Unicorn Experience

The latest Phoebe and Her Unicorn collection from Dana Simpson, Virtual Unicorn Experience, is as fresh and funny and entertaining as any of the previous. It’s the twelfth book in the series, so that’s a pretty impressive track record. Since the unicorn Marigold is a magical creature, her sometimes use of spells makes for entertaining visuals, but the realistic elements of this strip are where it excels. In Virtual Unicorn Experience, the friendship between Marigold and the odd but admirable [.....

Is The New ‘Exorcist’ Trilogy a Very Bad Idea in the Making?

We’ve known for a while now that David Gordon Green was set to make a new Exorcist movie. But today word broke that there are actually three new Exorcist movies on the way – a new trilogy that will bring back original star Ellen Burstyn. Hamilton‘s Leslie Odom Jr. is also on board, playing the father of a possessed child. This news was met with a heavy dose of skepticism, and that’s not really surprising. The original Exorcist was a huge hit and remains an all-time classic, but the sequels – qu...

The best movies of 1968.

I don't blog about it every day, but my son John has a blog — that he adds to every day — that goes year by year from 1920 to 2021 and gives his favorite movie (or movies) from each year. For some years, he isolates a single movie, but for other years, he lists a runner-up or 2 or 3.  He hit 1968 today, and this is a year with 4 movies. The top choice is "Monterey Pop":  Truly amazing.

Doctor Who: Missy

I gave up watching Doctor Who midway through the Eleventh Doctor’s run, because what I wanted to see differed from the showrunner’s ideas. (It happens. In my rewatch, I will eventually get there.) I regret, though, that means that I missed out on the Master becoming Missy (played by Michelle Gomez), cause she looks cool. So I was glad to see that the latest Doctor Who comic from Titan was all about her. All four issues of the miniseries are [...]
