Tiger King 2 Coming To Netflix This Year With 'More Madness And Mayhem'

I'll freely admit that I got swept up in the "Tiger King" craze. The Netflix docuseries was well-made in the sense that it did a good job dropping strange, explosive twists to keep us hooked from episode to episode. That said, the minute the original docuseries ended, I was content to move on. I really didn't want to spend any more time with Joe Exotic, a twisted character who was so sure he was going to get a pardon from former President Trump that his lawyer had a limo waiting outside the pris...

Spencer Trailer: Kristen Stewart Is A Troubled Princess Diana

Kristen Stewart is Princess Diana in "Spencer," Pablo Larraín's haunting portrait of the Princess of Wales during one very long Christmas holiday. We seem to be overloaded with Princess Diana projects lately: there's "The Crown" and there's even a musical hitting Netflix in October. But that doesn't mean you should sleep on Larraín's movie, which is elegant, sad, and oddly even a little hopeful (despite the fact that we all know how things turn out for Diana in the end).

So I decided to dig into some other polling data. Data for Progress is a progressive-aligned organization, as the name suggests. And some skepticism is always warranted when the pollster is in some way an interested party. But Data for Progress is a respected outfit.
