Fun! Let’s face the darkness from 2018’s cinematic slate as a means of pushing forward. Movie moments that “went there” or invaded our nightmares.

‘The LEGO Movie 2’ Cast Includes Social Media Icon/Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Supreme Court Justice, walking meme machine and all-around good sport, took some time away from holding the entire fate of the United States on her shoulders to lend her voice to The LEGO Movie 2 cast. Ginsburg will be playing herself, in LEGO form (of course). I’m pretty sure this makes Ginsburg the first Supreme Court Justice to appear in a cartoon, except for that time Earl Warren appeared as the voice of the Galloping Ghost on an episode of Scooby-Doo*. In 2018, Ruth...

"The president of the United States has many faults, but let’s not ignore this one: He cannot write sentences."

"If a tree falls in a forrest and no one is there to hear it … wait: Pretty much all of you noticed that mistake, right? Yet Wednesday morning, the president did not; he released a tweet referring to 'forrest fires' twice, as if these fires were set by Mr. Gump. Trump’s serial misuse of public language is one of many shortcomings that betray his lack of fitness for the presidency. Trump’s writing suggests not just inadequate manners or polish—not all of us need be dainty—but inadequate thought. ...

‘Captain Marvel’ Star Samuel L. Jackson Talks the Origins and Legacy of Nick Fury [Set Visit Interview]

In May 2018, I visited the set of Marvel Studios and Disney’s next superhero movie, Captain Marvel, which was shooting in Los Angeles. On set, we had a chance to talk with Samuel L Jackson, who is reprising his role as Nick Fury in this prequel. He walked in the room with performance capture tracking dots on his face, perhaps to help with the de-aging visual effect that we’ve seen in past Marvel films. Or perhaps they were shooting a scene where we find out how Fury loses his eye, as he also ha...
