‘Highlander’ Reboot Still in the Works, Might Become a TV Series

Chad Stahelski, director of the John Wick films, has been attached to a potential Highlander reboot since 2016, but we’ve heard very little on the project over the years. Now, ahead of the release if John Wick: Chapter 3, Stahelski has offered an update: he still very much wants to make the reboot, but he wants to make sure he gets the complex mythology correct. That might mean creating a TV series instead of a movie. Highlander spawned six movies, three TV shows, comic books, video games, a...

‘Fyre’ and ‘Fyre Fraud’: Which One is Better? (And Which One is Less Ethically Compromised?)

It’s been less than two years since the debacle of the Fyre Festival. The proposed event on a Bahamian island was going to showcase major musical acts such as Blink-182 and Major Lazer; it was overseen by, among others, rapper Ja Rule; and it would create a new Coachella or Burning Man for the social-media elite.
