From Mike Flugennock, DC's anarchist cartoonist - "Miss Kabul" http://sinkers.org/stage/?p=3286 Elvis has left the building. At last. ...and as the band was playing him out, the Beltway chattering class  was in a mass conniption over all those poor, helpless collaborators  we left behind, and our lack of political will, and how, if we could  only piss away another trillion or two and tough it out until  mid-century, we could lick those mean old Taliban once and for all. ...

New ‘Spawn’ Movie Gets a New Writer, But Will It Ever Actually Get Made?

In April 2009 (you read that right), we reported that Todd McFarlane was in talks to make a new Spawn movie. Since then, children have been born and they’ve grown to the age of 12 without ever knowing what Spawn is. Yet there are those of us who grew up in the 1990s who do remember Spawn, not only the Image Comic but also the New Line Cinema film starring Michael Jai White in hamburger-face makeup. Over the years, we’ve heard various updates about McFarlane’s Spawn reboot. The latest one involv...

Here’s what we know about the movie so far. (Spoiler alert: it isn’t much!) I, for one, would love it if Anderson would release an actual title for this movie so we can stop referring to it as “Wes Anderson’s next movie,” but alas, the famously eclectic ...

Paul Bettany Isn’t Ruling Out Vision’s Return to the MCU

WandaVision spent much of its first season playing coy about what exactly was going on in the altered reality of Westview, where Wanda Maximoff (Elizabeth Olsen) was able to live out a rapidly-devolving fantasy life alongside a bewitched recreation of her late lover, Vision (Paul Bettany). An entire town may have been held prisoner as a result of her mentally torturous actions, but what’s that compared to love, right? Anyway, Bettany is speaking up about his role in the generally well-received ...

‘Free Guy’ Spoiler Review: Don’t Hate The Game, Hate Its Many Contradictions

  Free Guy is a frustrating contradiction: a movie that manages to be a happy surprise, yet utterly underwhelming. Launching its audience into the chaos of an open-world video game, Free Guy is filled to the brim with humor, violence, and romance for a jam-packed two hours that feel shockingly hollow by the time the credits roll. It’s loudly self-aware, but drowning in cliches. Undeniably fun but with nothing interesting to say. How Free Guy manages to do so much at once yet nothing at all is i...

‘The Crown’ Clip Shows Off Emma Corrin’s Complete ‘Phantom of the Opera’ Song

Season 4 of The Crown gifted us with Emma Corrin’s Diana Spencer, a warm and welcome presence in the otherwise frosty Buckingham Palace. Where the fictional royal family was icy and emotionally stunted, Corrin’s Princess Di was open-hearted and vulnerable. She was easy to latch onto and even easier to fall in love with, especially as her marriage went down a path of tragedy. In its most hopeful moments, her whirlwind romance with Prince Charles (Josh O’Connor) seemed to have some potential, but...
