‘The Invisible Man’ Review: Elisabeth Moss is Incredible in Leigh Whannell’s Scary, Timely Horror Update

Is this the first real horror movie of the #MeToo era? Leigh Whannell‘s nerve-jangling The Invisible Man bears almost no resemblance to the 1933 Universal pic starring Claude Rains, nor does it take much from the original H. G. Wells novel of the same name. About the only thing Whannell’s modern-day update has in common with those titles is that it involves a dangerous, and invisible, man. But with that basic set-up, Whannell has crafted a surprisingly timely tale of an abused, terrified woman ...

"The moment I stand in reverence before every human being and see God in him, that moment, I am free."

Said Donald Trump, quoting "the great religious teacher Swami Vivekananda," in his biggest-ever speech— to a crowd of over 100,00 — in a cricket stadium in India.The speech begins around 1:27:00, and it begins with extolling the greatness of India, but let me pinpoint 18 seconds, when he deals with religion. He's just said that Indians and Americans believe that "every person is endowed with a sacred soul" and this belief unites our 2 countries:Vivekananda connected the idea of seeing God in eve...

The mysteries and wonders behind this weird ritual of meeting strangers or distant acquaintances/family in public places to sit across from cooked dead things and try to impress each other or — EVEN WORSE STILL — “just be ourselves” — will forever piss us off, make us sad, and fill us with joy. And we’re helpless against it. But what if that wasn’t true? What if ther...

President Trump’s Take on Parasite Echoes an Old Debate Over the Role of Non-American Films at the Oscars

Nostalgia has been a regular theme at rallies for President Donald Trump since before he was elected — he is, after all, the man who wants to make America great again.
