What Ancient Egyptian Sounded Like & How We Know It

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J-K5OjAkiEA If you’ve seen any Hollywood movie set in ancient Egypt, you already know how its language sounded: just like English, but spoken with a more formal diction and a range of broadly Middle-Eastern accents. But then there are many competing theories about life that long ago, and perhaps you’d prefer to believe the linguistic-historical take provided in the video above. A production of Joshua Rudder’s NativLang, a Youtube channel previously feature...

Quentin Tarantino’s Copycat Cinema: How the Postmodern Filmmaker Perfected the Art of the Steal

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9I1J36rdoc You can call Quentin Tarantino a thief. Call him unoriginal, a copycat, whatever, he doesn’t care. But if you really want to get him going, call him a tribute artist. This, he insists, is the last thing he has ever been: great directors, Tarantino declares, “don’t do homages.” They outright steal, from anyone, anywhere, without regard to intellectual property or hurt feelings. But great directors don’t plagiarize in the Tarantino school of film...

Filmmakers behind 'Greyhound,' 'Greenland,' and more say streaming and digital rentals rescued their mid-budget movies amid the pandemic — and it could lead to lasting change in Hollywood

Tom Hanks in "Greyhound," which skipped theaters this year for Apple TV Plus. Sony Movie studios have sought alternative release strategies for movies amid the pandemic, such as premium-video-on-demand and streaming services. These alternatives methods benefit low-to-mid-budget movies more than big-budget tentpoles, which generate significant revenue from the worldwide box office. Business Insider spoke with three filmmakers whose mid-budget movies have skipped theaters this year for PVOD ...

The sweet smell of fame and success: Doug McIntyre

For more than a hundred years the high cheek-boned and tapered-waisted have flocked to Southern California seeking wealth and fame, but mostly fame. In my own extremely limited way, I too took the bait. Granted, my bathroom mirror did not suggest a career on the big screen — at best a tiny blurry photo in the Sunday paper to accompany 600 words of rambling opining on subjects I am only marginally competent to discuss. Still, as far-fetched as my dreams of superstardom may have been, at no time d...

'Wonder Woman 1984' will stream the same day it hits theaters and could open the door for 'Black Widow' and other tentpole movies to follow

"Wonder Woman 1984" Warner Bros. "Wonder Woman 1984" will begin streaming on HBO Max for a month starting December 25, the same day it hits theaters where they are open. The move could push other studios to embrace streaming for tentpole movies, including Marvel's "Black Widow," as coronavirus cases surge throughout the US. A source familiar with Disney's thinking said that "everything is in consideration" for Disney Plus. Some analysts argue that this is the result of abnormal times, but ...

The Geek in Review Ep. 95 – Spotting Bias and Politicization of Local News Sources – Loyd Auerbach and Dave Boitano

We live in a society that cannot seem to come to an agreement on what is truth and what are lies. People are seeking out stories that back up their beliefs rather than seek out the truths which may undermine those beliefs. We particularly see this on social media, but there are other sites out there which pass themselves off as local news organization which is really just biased sources designed to play upon the needs of people to have their “truths” backed up with like-minded articles.

America Has Yet To Shake Its Addiction To Hate

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis. I spent last weekend talking with other people of color about Biden’s election. Everyone had the same vibe. It wasn’t joy nor dread. The mood was of cautious encouragement. Someone compared America’s hate problem to a terrible addiction. This country fell off the wagon, went on a four-year bender, almost died, killed others in the rampage, and then staggered back into AA still bleeding and smelling of booze. You’re...

How Akira Kurosawa Used Movement to Tell His Stories: A Video Essay

The history books say that there were three Japanese filmmakers to emerge in the 1950s – Kenji Mizoguchi, Yasujiro Ozu and Akira Kurosawa. Never mind that Mizoguchi and Ozu made many of their best movies in the 1930s. Never mind that masterful, innovative directors like Mikio Naruse and Keisuke Kinoshita have been unfairly overshadowed by the brilliance of these three greats. Mizoguchi was an early modernist who by the end of his career made meditative movies about how women suffer at the h...

Facebook is limiting distribution of ‘save our children’ hashtag over QAnon ties

Facebook today confirmed that it will be limiting the distribution of the hashtag “save our children.” Over the past several months, the phrase — and ones like it — have become associated with QAnon. These terms have served to provide a kind of innocuous cover for the popular online conspiracy theory. A spokesperson for the social network confirmed the move today, noting that child safety resources will be prioritized in search above those potentially tied to QAnon. “Earlier this week, we ste...
