Objective reality may not exist, European researchers say

In 1961, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Eugene Wigner proposed a thought experiment by which the reality of two observers can diverge by measuring a single photon. Researchers recently tested Wigner's thought experiment and concluded that realities can be made irreconcilable. Do these results put the entire scientific method at risk? Let's not get ahead of ourselves. None Objective reality cannot be known. It's the kind of statement you expect to hear from a sophomore postmodernist or nihilists a...

‘The Magicians’ Sets the Stakes for a Harrowing Season Finale With “The Secret Sea”

The two major story arcs this season of The Magicians—the journey of the Eliot-Monster and the Library’s steady descent toward fascism—come together in a murderous way this episode and tee up next week’s finale to be one full of more murders. Who will be killed next week, however, remains to be seen: Will the old gods die, hunted down by the Evil Eliot and Evil Julia? Will Quentin and Alice die as they face off against the evil siblings? Will Kady allow herself to be poisoned to death in order...

‘Coraline’ is About the Fear of Growing Up – And the Realization That It’s Not That Bad

(To celebrate the release of Missing Link, we’re revisiting the stop-motion animated films of Laika this week and discussing why they’re so special. Today: Coraline is an adventure movie where adulthood is the villain.) At first glance, Coraline seems ripe for the haunting of children’s dreams. Henry Selick’s 2009 stop-motion feature adaptation of the Neil Gaiman storybook of the same name is creepy, ghastly, and a little disturbing, with elements that could put an adult-targeted horror film to...

Netflix Has Hired a New Screenwriter to Pen an ‘Alice in Wonderland,’ ‘Wizard of Oz’ Crossover

When you’ve run out of toy franchises to adapt or remakes to greenlight, where else to turn to but the public domain — a veritable playground of decades-old characters ripe for the big or small screen? It’s why we’ve had a million Robin Hood reboots and why we’ll keep seeing the Wicked Witch’s story retold on Broadway. But when doing a straight adaptation has become old-hat, what else is there to do? Throw two characters together in a wacky crossover that sound like it came out of a Disney fan-...

Urban Decay Game of Thrones Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Salvador Dalí, Book Illustrator

“Throughout the second half of his life, Dalí had a curious side-project … illustrating the Western canon: Don Quixote and Macbeth in 1946; The Divine Comedy between 1951 and 1964; the Bible between 1963 and 1964; Alice in Wonderland in 1969; Henry V and Henry VI in 1970; The Life of Gargantua and Pantagruel in 1973; and Paradise Lost in 1974. Browsing a shelf of the West’s most renowned titles, it’s surprisingly hard to find one for which he didn’t do the pictures.” – Artsy

‘The Magicians’ Brings the Ensemble Back Together in “The 4-1-1” – Only to Split Them Apart Again

“The 4-1-1” begins with a lot of the gang back together in New York City, a rare moment on this ensemble show, and one—given all the storylines that need to be tied up in the last three episodes—that’s necessarily short-lived. After Margo debriefs Quentin, Julia, Penny23 and Alice on her musical journey to the desert (she has ice axes to kick the evil god out of Eliot!), the crew splits into different groups again with seemingly disparate missions. Everyone’s Mini-Quests Unearth a Whole...

Fantasy Epics Are YA’s Next Big Trend — Here’s Where To Get Started

Fantasy books have always been popular in YA and children's literature — long before Harry Potter.

In two 2019 books, for example, authors dive back into 18th and 19th century Paris and supernatural twists.In a way, YA fantasy offers a chance to rewrite history, in addition to letting imaginations soar.

‘Maleficent 2’ Footage Introduces Us to the ‘Mistress of Evil’ [CinemaCon 2019]

While Disney has been remaking their animated films for years, their recent animation-to-live-action craze was kicked-off with two films: Tim Burton’s 2010 Alice in Wonderland, and 2014’s Maleficent. Maleficent retold the story of Sleeping Beauty from the point of view of the villain, played by Angelina Jolie. Now, a sequel is arriving: Maleficent: Mistress of Evil. We saw new footage from the film at CinemaCon, and lived to tell the tale. Here’s what we saw. The footage was a behind-the-sce...

Mini-Reviews: THE DREAMERS by Karen Thompson Walker & THE FAMILIARS by Stacey Halls

I’ve been reading quite a lot now that my commute is five hours long. Daily. I read two books recently, a mixed bag – one, a literary fiction that left me cold, the other a historical fiction that was heartwarming. In an isolated college hall in California, a student falls asleep and doesn’t wake up. She is alive but sleeping. Her roommate, Mei, is right there at the start of what can only be described as a surreal event that snowballs from there. Little by little, people start falli...

'Dumbo' wins the weekend box office, but performs worse than expected

Disney's "Dumbo" took in an estimated $45 million over the weekend. That's below industry projections.

‘The Magicians’ Gets Musical Again with “All That Hard, Glossy Armor”

This season’s much anticipated musical episode of The Magicians has some great song covers, which range from sweet ballads to empowering anthems. On the softer side, there’s Hale Appleman serenading Summer Bishil with Al Jolson’s and Bing Crosby’s “Beautiful Dreamer,” as well as getting his groove on to The Pretenders’ “Don’t Get Me Wrong.” On the louder side, we have members of the gang (well, projections of the gang from Margo’s mind) triumphantly singing Whitesnake’s “Here I Go Again,” and G...
