From Fight Club to Brief Encounter: How self-isolation would change classic films

It’s now difficult to watch movies without worrying about the two-meter rule – here are the retrospective plot changes required to mean old movies pass musterIn the age of self-isolation, I’ve started to change how I watch films. I’ve begun to clock moments when characters break the government rules on physical closeness. Consider the “I know it was you, Fredo” scene from The Godfather Part II. Or the bit in 2001: A Space Odyssey where all the astronauts gather for a photo by the moon monolith. ...

‘Avengers: Endgame’: Here’s How ‘Back to the Future’ Co-Creator Bob Gale Responded to Those References

It’s fair to say that Bob Gale may be one of the people on Earth who has most shaped the way human beings think about time travel. Sure, you could put people like Albert Einstein and Stephen Hawking up there, but Gale is the co-writer/producer of the Back to the Future trilogy, and it’s a safe bet that more people have seen those movies than have cracked open a book by either of those two scientists. As you undoubtedly know by now, Marvel Studios’ Avengers: Endgame deals extensively with time t...
