The Washington Post Super Bowl ad is a great ad for the product — journalism — but where can I get it — at The Washington Post?

There are ads that make you want to drink soda but don't make you want to drink the soda the ad is for. It may even drive you toward a competing brand....Okay? So when The Washington Post offers this lofty paean to journalism at its most courageous and noble, I am touched...... but it's with sadness and longing for something I don't believe I can ever have. And indeed, the ad itself exemplifies the problem because it puffs and deceives and lures and titillates. It deals in sentimentality and sen...

Netflix ‘Space Force’ TV Series Will Reunite Steve Carell and ‘Office’ Creator Greg Daniels

Donald Trump’s Space Force idea sounded like (and still sounds like) a joke, so making a Space Force comedy series only seems fair. Netflix will launch Space Force to series soon, reuniting Steve Carell and The Office creator Greg Daniels in the process. The show will be a workplace comedy focusing on the people who have been tasked with making Trump’s goofy-as-hell Space Force idea a reality.

‘Vice’ Director Adam McKay on His Meticulously Made Biopic and How He Thinks Dick Cheney Would React to the Film [Interview]

Too many biopics fall prey to hero worship. In trying to celebrate someone’s life, many biographical films end up lacking humanity, nuance, and, more often than not, hard truths. It plagues bio films, especially the agreeable kind that score all the Oscars. But in the case of Adam McKay‘s Vice, he didn’t make the average biopic. He’s certainly not looking up to Dick Cheney, the former Vice President, but looking down on him with a big ‘ol unforgiving microscope. The drama is an epic that moves ...

'Vice', Dick Cheney, and the Satisfaction of the Deed Itself

None The crucial moment in Vice, Adam McKay's furiously funny mock biopic about the rise of Dick Cheney, doesn't come when, as Vice President just after 9/11, he makes a naked power grab and shifts the country onto a war footing. It's not when he calls his wife Lynne from a cubicle in the Gerald Ford White House and says, "We did it." It happens back in Wyoming in the early '60s. Cheney is going nowhere fast after drinking after another drunk night that saw him tossed in the slammer, Dick—a he...

Steve Carell Really Doesn’t Want to Be Part of a Potential ‘The Office’ Reunion

Plenty of shows from years past are making comebacks with reunions and revivals, but the one that’s in the most demand won’t have one of the key parts of the series if it happens. Steve Carell has become a huge movie star since his stint on The Office as bumbling, offensive Dunder-Mifflin manager Michael Scott, and he simply doesn’t want to come back to the network series. But it’s not because he’s too busy with movies, and it’s not even because he thinks bringing Michael Scott back in today’s ...

‘Welcome to Marwen’ Review: Robert Zemeckis Creates an Absolute Disaster

It takes a special kind of talent to make a film as shockingly bad as Welcome to Marwen, and Robert Zemeckis is up for the challenge! What the hell happened to Zemeckis, a director responsible for several legitimately great movies? The filmmaker has always embraced cinematic innovation, pushing the envelope by adopting new technologies – for better and worse. Welcome to Marwen definitely falls into the “worse” category, and in many ways, it feels like the terrible, terrible film Zemeckis has be...
