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. On Thursday night, at a rally in Colorado Springs, Trump directed that sentiment at the movie industry, dismissing the South Korean film Parasite, which won this year’s Oscar for Best Picture. “We’ve got enough problems with South Korea with trade; on top of it, they give it the best movie of the year,” Trump said. “Let’s get...

A Gorgeous New Emma Adaptation Strikes Just the Right Balance of Modern and Authentic

In the days before her novels were adapted into swoony TV miniseries, reimagined as zombie-themed novelties and spun off into little gifty-type advice books, Jane Austen felt like a well-kept secret. Before Austenmania took hold, scholars studied her and avid readers adored her—she was hardly obscure. But suddenly, people in book clubs everywhere were reading, and adoring, her. Longtime Austen lovers, even if they rejoiced in her posthumous superstardom, couldn’t help feeling a little miffe...

Serious-Minded Political Thriller The Last Thing He Wanted Makes Its Audience Work Too Hard

The Last Thing He Wanted, Dee Rees’ adaptation of Joan Didion’s 1996 novel, is such an ambitious piece of work that it’s hard to know where to start with it: Anne Hathaway stars as Elena McMahon, a dogged reporter who, as the movie opens, is dodging bullets in 1982 El Salvador. She and a colleague (played by Rosie Perez) barely escape with their lives. But once she’s back at home in Washington, Elena wants nothing more than to get back to Central America and follow a story she’s only just b...

President Trump Trashes Korean Oscar-Winner Parasite at Rally

(WASHINGTON) — President Donald Trump is apparently not a fan of “Parasite,” his biggest complaint being that the movie was made in South Korea. Trump started talking about the Academy Awards during a campaign rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on Thursday. Parasite was named best picture, becoming the first non-English-language film to get the top honor. “What the hell was that all about?” Trump said. “We’ve got enough problems with South Korea with trade. On top of that, they give them ...

Tight Budget but Want to Party? These Are the Cities Least Expensive for Drinking

What’s the best part of a social gathering? The eating and drinking, of course.  Unfortunately, for many social butterflies and party-goers, the costs associated with drinking can really add up and put a dent in your wallet. One drink turns into two and two turns into agreeing to pitch in on a bottle or pitcher of margaritas. If you’re someone that frequents bars and restaurants, this is a major expense to occur. It’s no wonder so many people revolve social gatherings around places with th...

Here’s the Secret Meaning Behind the BTS Small No. 7 Memes You’re Seeing Everywhere

If you’ve been seeing a surplus of tiny sevens when you log onto Twitter, it’s not an influx of numerology enthusiasts, but instead another way for the ardent BTS army to show their love for the popular K-pop boy band. Like the purple emoji hearts that BTS superfans posted in comments and tweets online, small superscript sevens have popped up in Twitter usernames, bios and the tweets themselves of loyal BTS supporters. The number seven is significant for BTS for both obvious and less well-k...

For Decades, an Annual Competition Has Challenged Students to Deliver Speeches Inspired by Martin Luther King Jr. Here’s Why It’s Still Going Strong

Little Women Has Produced the Perfect Meme For All the Things Everyone Simply Can’t Do

Greta Gerwig’s Little Women is once again the talk of Twitter, and on this occasion because it has produced a very good meme for expressing, well, the postmodern mess that is doing stuff — or not doing stuff, specifically, because you just can’t. Given its universal appeal, the meme has spread far and wide across Twitter, with speed comparable to that tragic scarlet fever outbreak in the original novel. In the critical darling of a film, a modern adaptation of the 1868 Louisa May Alcott cla...

Taylor Swift’s Father Safe After Fighting Off Burglar in Florida Penthouse

(ST. PETERSBURG, Fla.) — Taylor Swift’s father recently fought a burglar who broke into his $4 million Florida penthouse, a newspaper is reporting. The Tampa Bay Times said that Scott Swift returned to his home in the Vinoy Place Towers in St. Petersburg on Jan. 17 just moments after 30-year-old Terrence Hoover used an emergency escape stairwell to climb 13 floors to enter it.

‘I Thought It Really Resembled Reality.’ Oscar Winner Parasite Shines Light on South Korean Basement Apartments

(SEOUL, South Korea) — Kim Da-hye, a 29-year-old South Korean, said that moving into a semi-basement apartment was her least-preferred option when she was looking for a new place to live. But after a rigorous search and a close examination of her finances, she was forced to settle for a “banjiha,” the Korean word for a cramped basement flat. South Korean director Bong Joon-ho‘s Oscar-winning film Parasite has brought banjiha dwellers like Kim to worldwide attention, thanks to its depiction ...

The Times of Bill Cunningham Delightfully Captures the Fashion Photographer’s Artistry—and His More Sensitive Side

Even those of us who used to await and savor Bill Cunningham’s street-fashion photochronicle every week in the New York Times—where his work appeared from 1978 to 2016—probably had no idea how precious, in time, those photographs would come to be. Cunningham had two beats: society parties and, better yet, the polychrome cavalcade of fashion as seen on the streets of Paris and, most frequently, New York. His “On the Street” column, which featured candid pictures of individuals arranged into ...

Downhill Is an Uphill Slog That Doesn’t Justify Its Remake of the Darker, Subtler Force Majeure

Ideally, we should be able to view remakes as their own creatures, independent organisms with their own blood coursing through their veins. But we’re only human, and if we’ve seen the original version of a picture, a new one can seem instantly substandard, the memory of the first showing through like bones on an X-ray. That’s the problem—or one of many problems—with Downhill, an English-language reworking of Swedish director Ruben Östland’s 2014 chilly family semi-comedy Force Majeure. In t...

The Photograph Is a Gratifying, Modern Version of a 1930s Hollywood Romance

Writer-director Stella Meghie’s romantic drama The Photograph is a lovely ghost of a movie, the kind of thing we used to call, in the days before the ascent of the superhero film, a popular entertainment. We get so few love stories today that it’s easy to forget they used to be a staple of the movie-release schedule; sometimes all you want is a chance to watch beautiful people meet, fall in love and break apart, only to be reunited (or not) in a way that feels gratifying. That’s what Meghie...

Someone Ingeniously Combined Idina Menzel’s Reaction to Eminem and the Cats on Stage at the 2020 Oscars

Despite a slew of historic moments at the 2020 Oscars, it appeared that there was still plenty of time for the Internet to have a little fun. Case in point? The inspired decision to combine Idina Menzel‘s priceless reaction to Eminem’s surprise performance of “Lose Yourself” that puzzled viewers alongside an image of James Corden and Rebel Wilson’s homage to their roles in the notorious Cats to make a very meta “Woman Yelling at Cat” meme for the ages. From the jump, it was apparent that Em...
