Darren Aronofsky Is A Big Fan Of All The Mother! Hate Mail He Got

We all know that negative criticism can be a real mother, but director Darren Aronofsky is still catching heat for his 2017 environmental horror/biblical allegory, "Mother!" That's right, it's been more than four years and people are still apparently really upset that she never got to brace the sink. Just kidding — they're still upset about the violence and disturbing content.

A Meteorite Crashed Through Somebody's Ceiling and Landed on Their Bed (slashdot)

The New York Times reports: Ruth Hamilton was fast asleep in her home in British Columbia when she awoke to the sound of her dog barking, followed by "an explosion." She jumped up and turned on the light, only to see a hole in the ceiling. Her clock said 11:35 p.m. At first, Hamilton thought that a tree had fallen on her house. But, no, all the trees were there. She called 911 and, while on the phone with an operator, noticed a large charcoal gray object between her two floral pillows. "Oh,...

Remember those "How to Train Your Dragon" movies? I won't sit here and try to convince anyone that they were the pinnacle of animated storytelling or anything, but the first movie came out of nowhere in 2010 and proved to be charming and successful enough to spawn its own trilogy of dragon-rider films set hundreds of years ago in a mystical Viking land. The two sequels, released in 2014 and 2019, ended up bringing the surprisingly satisfying journey of Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) and his ado...
