Amazons Das Rad der Zeit: Endlich Diversity in einer Fantasy-Serie

Gerade sind alle Augen auf Amazons Das Rad der Zeit gerichtet. Zum Teil, weil die Serie als neues Game of Thrones gilt, und auch, weil es die aufwendigste Serie ist, die Amazon je produziert hat – vor allem aber, weil die Hauptrollen (im Gegensatz zu anderen Fantasy-Shows!) divers besetzt sind. Diverses Casting in Fantasy-Serien lässt noch immer mehr auf sich warten als in anderen Genres; echte Repräsentation sucht man vielerorts vergebens. Verglichen mit den beinahe ausschließlich weißen Darste...

Der „Jennifer-Lawrence-Effekt“ & Hollywoods absurde Erwartungen an Frauen

Jennifer Lawrence ist wieder da. Die Oscar-Gewinnerin, die einst Hollywoods selbstironisches Kronjuwel war, ist in den vergangenen Jahren ein bisschen in der Versenkung verschwunden. Jetzt tritt sie langsam zurück ins Rampenlicht – angefangen mit ihrem neuen Film Don’t Look Up. Und im ersten großen Interview seit ihrem bewussten Rückzug aus der Öffentlichkeit wird klar: Die Last der öffentlichen Meinung hat ganz schön an Lawrences Selbstbewusstsein gekratzt. „Ich glaube, alle hatten mic...

Brooke Shields on child stardom, sexualisation and nailing comedy: ‘It’s not in my nature to be a victim’

From Hollywood movies to naked photoshoots, the actor spent much of her youth in projects that now look more than a little creepy. She talks about her alcoholic mother, her new romcom and the happiness she has found in her 50sHow, I wonder, is Brooke Shields so sorted? She has survived a childhood with an alcoholic mother, some disturbing early films, a nation’s creepy obsession with her, a divorce and severe postnatal depression.

„Like A Virgin“: Wie der Jungfrauen-Mythos Britney Spears & Co. zerstörte

Es war das erste Mal seit 13 Jahren, dass Britney Spears in der Öffentlichkeit über ihre langwährende Vormundschaft sprach. Im Laufe des 24-minütigen Statements erzählte der Popstar klar und leidenschaftlich davon, wie sie seit über einem Jahrzehnt unter diesem Vertrag litt – wie sie von ihrem Vormund, ihrem Vater Jamie Spears, dazu gezwungen worden sei, sieben Tage pro Woche durchzuarbeiten, gegen ihren Willen Lithium einzunehmen und sogar eine Spirale zu tragen, obwohl sie sich weitere Kinder ...

Why Is a Post on “Moneyball” vs. “Trouble with the Curve” Still Getting Attention?

Over the last few months, a surprising number of viewers have been reading my post on two related movies, “Moneyball (2011)” and “Trouble with the Curve (2012).” With the majority of my blog readers between 18 and 34, I initially decided that the key to their interest now was my early assessment of artificial intelligence. At the time my readers and I were just getting introduced to artificial intelligence. It also turns out that nearly ten years later my conclusion regarding how artificial inte...
