Watch the Live TV Adaptation of George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four, the Most Controversial TV Drama of Its Time (1954)

“Wife Dies as She Watches,” announced a Daily Express headline after the broadcast of Nineteen Eighty-Four, a BBC adaptation of George Orwell’s novel. The article seems to have attributed the sudden collapse and death of a 42-year-old Herne Bay Woman to the production’s shocking content. That was the most dramatic of the many accusations leveled against the BBC of inflicting distress on the viewing public with Orwell’s bleak and harrowing vision of a totalitarian future. Yet that same pu...

Goblincore: the fashion trend that embraces ‘chaos, dirt and mud’

Sales of clothes and accessories featuring mushrooms, snails, frogs and worms are booming, but why now?Mushrooms, toads and moss might not be the most celebrated of nature’s creations, but thanks to goblincore, an aesthetic that is blossoming online as well as in forests, the danker, gnarlier side of nature is enjoying a moment in the sun.According to the TikTok user @froggiecrocs, AKA Parker, who has more than 90,000 followers who tune in for his goblincore content, it “romanticizes the ugly, l...

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is in the middle of season six, which is all about cuddly, terrifying, and occasionally musical aliens causing havoc across the timeline.

Rick and Morty's SDCC 2021 Panel Was Nowhere Near as Good as the Current Season

So far on Rick and Morty’s currently airing fifth season, we’ve seen things like Rick squabbling with oceanic royalty, the entire Smith-Sanchez clan battling multiple “decoys” of themselves, and a very funny, very karaoke-involved riff on Hellraiser’s “pain is pleasure” schtick. In other words, it’s been a killer…Read more...

When David Bowie Played Andy Warhol in Julian Schnabel’s Film, Basquiat

Many actors have played Andy Warhol over the years, but not as many as you might think. Crispin Glover played him in The Doors, Jared Harris played him in I Shot Andy Warhol, Guy Pearce played him in Factory Girl, and Bill Hader played him in Men in Black III, but with a twist: he is actually an agent who is so bad as his cover role as an artist, he’s “painting soup cans and bananas, for Christ sakes!” On television John Cameron Mitchell has acted the Warhol role in Vinyl, and Evan Peter...

‘Fear Street’ Spoiler Review: Netflix’s Horror Trilogy Mines Nostalgia While Looking to the Future

Netflix’s Fear Street trilogy, a three-week spree of crimes against innocent Shadysiders, ended on Friday. It’s possibly the biggest slasher-movie event since the 2018 Halloween broke box-office records for its franchise and production company. There have been other slasher flicks since then; the bloody body-swap Freaky comes to mind as one genre torch-bearer, seen mostly on VOD late last year. However, with its staggered release pattern — instant summer sequels, now available to stream! — Fear...

It took Chris Stuck 20 years to get published. Now he’s not holding back.

Chris Stuck’s debut short story collection, “Give My Love to the Savages” was a long time coming — two decades after getting his MFA in creative writing. Now that Stuck has finally made it at age 45, he is not holding back. The book’s first story tracks the life of a biracial man like Stuck from the first time he heard the N-word – in kindergarten – through decades of American racism that is sometimes casual, sometimes pointed, but always personal. Stuck follows that poignant and personal t...

David Bowie’s Ignorant and Ironic Name Choice

David Jones (aka Dave Jay, aka David Bowie), was the Kon-Rads’ vocalist and Saxman in 1963.   David Jones had to change his name because “Davy Jones” was already being used by the shortest member of The Monkees.  Bowie named himself after the American pioneer woodsman Jim Bowie of Bowie Knife and Alamo fame. It was an ill-informed choice.  The Alamo, after all, was about white American interlopers fighting to secede from Mexico in order to preserve slavery.  Mexico had banned slavery a...

How the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Prince and more became photographic icons

For Gered Mankowitz, a rock ‘n’ roll photographer in England in the ’60s, it was a constant fight to have the pictures he made of artists such as the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix and the Small Faces taken seriously. “It was the packaging, it was something to knock off, it was a glossy to be given to a magazine,” Mankowitz says on a recent video call. “And yet I and dozens of my contemporaries were trying so hard to make the best of it, to try and do something special, stretch the genre, and give...

What the Eagles’ “Hotel California” Really Means

During the Satanic panic of the 1980s, a new breed of witchfinder cast a dragnet through pop culture, scooping up songs, artists, and albums that were allegedly part of a demonic conspiracy to corrupt America’s youth. One song routinely appearing on such lists — “Hotel California” by the Eagles. Really? The Eagles? Biggest-selling rock band in the U.S.? Soft-rock superstars who paved the cocaine-colored way for even softer yacht rock superstars? They were hardly Black Sabbath, but ...

‘Ted Lasso’ Season 2 Review: The New Episodes Refuse to Do More of the Same, With Unexpected Results

A cynical but often accurate generalization about blockbuster sequels goes like this: “just do the first one again, only make it bigger this time.” And make no mistake: Ted Lasso is unquestionably a blockbuster. The AppleTV+ drama is arguably among the biggest underdog stories in TV history, rising against all odds to become one of the defining shows of 2020 and scooping up a slew of accolades in the process. Thankfully, the show’s second season doesn’t fall into that cynical description of seq...

Netflix is taking a stab at R.L. Stine’s ‘Fear Street’ horror books for three new films

R.L. Stine has cranked out more than 150 books under his “Fear Street” banner, and these mass-appeal horror books for teens have sold more than 80 million copies. When Leigh Janiak was given the reins to bring “Fear Street” to film back in 2017, however, the path forward was dark, scary and unclear. Janiak, who had directed one low-budget indie horror film and a few episodes of horror TV, was hired to make a series of three films that could be binged and released back-to-back. There were no o...
