This Week In Trailers: Run This Town, Enormous: The Gorge Story, Over the Rainbow, Enter the Fat Dragon, Love Fraud

Trailers are an under-appreciated art form insofar that many times they’re seen as vehicles for showing footage, explaining films away, or showing their hand about what moviegoers can expect. Foreign, domestic, independent, big budget: What better way to hone your skills as a thoughtful moviegoer than by deconstructing these little pieces of advertising? This week we get religious with a look at Scientology, travel really far for a good time, see Donny Yen become the martial arts version of The...

Mortgage qualifying rules get creative

What if you don’t have quite enough income to support your mortgage application loan request? But you own other properties with equity. No problem! One investor now allows mortgage loan originators to calculate the equity from your other properties and divide the equity by 84 months and call it income. For example, you have $300,000 of equity between your second home and a rental. Divide $300,000 by 84 months equals $3,571 and call it additional income. Wow! Recognized income without paying any ...

‘The Personal History of David Copperfield’ Trailer: Dev Patel Does Dickens for the Creator of ‘Veep’

The Personal History of David Copperfield is an utter delight from beginning to end, and soon, more audiences will get to see that for themselves.

A love letter to my beloved NAS Drive, the WD PR2100

I was hit with some cruel reality while writing this article: I’m an old fuck. But, before we get to this realisation, let’s get all David Copperfield and backtrack. When I was thinking about this latest edition of the ‘A Love Letter to…’ series, I was pondering exactly what it was that made me love the Western Digital (WD from herein) PR2100 NAS (AKA network-attached storage) drive so much. Let’s consider the fundamentals. It’s not a particularly sexy looking device, unless you get your sheets ...

Film 2020

We're always threatening to go the cinema more often, keep up with new films, stray beyond the parish boundaries to the bright city lights, but somehow we never do. The odd film here and there and then we sink back into the sofa again and watch a box set. But then word reached us that things were afoot in the metropolis. The Vue cinema on the outskirts has had to up its game in the face of competition from the big new all-singing all-dancing cinema in Plymouth City Centre (did I hear £15 a ticke...

These are 2020’s most anticipated movies

Around this time a year ago, we were all charged up with anticipation to see the climax of the 23-film Marvel Cinematic Universe, the end of the 42-year-old main “Star Wars” saga and career-culminating epics from Martin Scorsese and Quentin Tarantino. Nothing on that scale is coming along in the 2020 movie year. But appropriately enough for the start of a new decade, the films getting released in the next 12 months will likely reset Hollywood’s trajectory. And that’s something long overdue. To s...

First Edition Book Cover Art Print

Mister Arthurious's prints of first edition book covers powerfully evoke the stories the writers wrote—and also the stories behind the books. The 1877 publication of Anna Sewell's Black Beauty quickly inspired anti-cruelty legislation in both England and the US. Charles Dickens first published David Copperfield in 19 monthly, 32-page installments, between May, 1849 and November, 1850. The Picture of Dorian Gray was first published in 1890, in a magazine whose editor, worried it was indecent,...

Armando Iannucci: ‘I personally am not a sweary, angry man’

He’s famous for the expletive-packed political satire The Thick of It, but now the comedy guru is tackling DickensArmando Iannucci is not someone you’d describe as having a commanding presence. He doesn’t want to consume all the oxygen in the room or, with a show of bored impatience, imply that it’s your good fortune to share his company. He may be well known, but there’s nothing of the celebrity about him. Short, balding and understated in manner, he could pass for a provincial loss adjuster co...

‘Avenue 5’ Trailer: Josh Gad Invites You on a “Luxury” Space Experience

Josh Gad is not the best billionaire salesman, but he does his awkward, creepy best in the latest Avenue 5 trailer, which plays like a very bad advertisement for Gad’s luxury space cruise. In the new space comedy from Veep creator Armando Ianucci, Gad plays Judd Galaxy’s founder, Herman Judd, who uses stock footage and shots of Hugh Laurie to bring us a vision of the future of space travel.

Leadership Lessons from Great Teachers

Master Teacher Wardie Sanders recently retired after teaching history for years at Hartsville High School. There are a lot of great teachers in schools all around the country who are only known to other teachers and in their own community. The news media are more likely to devote time to a violent crime or devastating fire than to the everyday work of great teachers. Wardie was an exception. In November 2015, the New York Times featured an article headlined The Art of the Thanksgiving Table. Her...

‘Avenue 5’ Teaser: The Creator of ‘Veep’ Takes Us on a Luxurious Space Cruise with Hugh Laurie and Josh Gad

Veep creator and In the Loop director Armando Ianucci got bored with political satire a little while back, mostly because the real politics of today are far too ludicrous and depressing to effectively make comedy out of them. But that’s not stopping the masterful comedy writer and director from starting a new series. Avenue 5 has Armando Ianucci taking us to space aboard the luxurious space cruise ship of the same name. Hugh Laurie is the captain who seems to love his job, that is until the shi...

Puddles covers Lizzo's "Juice" in a sultry way

"Heard you say I'm not the saddest clown, you lied" You haven't heard Lizzo's "Juice" until you've heard a sad 6'8"-tall clown sing it. Puddles does this one "Quiet Storm Style." Our friend, Rebekah Del Rio, asked me how I would feel about doing Lizzo's song. I said I'd give it a go. I like saying yes first. This is how it turned out. I don't understand some of the references in it but I love me some Lizzo. Jonathan Burns helped me transcribe the lyrics. I especially like the David Copperfiel...

Word of the week: Macabre

The video depicts a mass shooting in a church by a lone assassin who looks very much like the grinning 45th president of the United States. It is violent, gruesome, tasteless, and obviously faked, but the adjective the New York Times editors chose for the headline above Monday’s story was none of those words. It was, instead, macabre, a word with a long, lurid, and murky history. The organizer of the American Priority event at which the video was screened said the video was part of a “meme...

tvOS 13 is what Apple TVs should’ve been like 4 years ago

I have a real soft spot for the Apple TV. I’ve used the range for years, and it’s still got pride of place in my home — but I also think it’s one of Apple’s disappointing products. And that makes me sad. The recent tvOS 13 update has been a long-awaited push in the right direction for the hardware, yet for this current iteration of the device, I have a feeling it’s too little, too late. Oh no, you’re going to get all David Copperfield aren’t you? Damn straight. Now, the first Apple TV I used (wh...

Sites to see in Las Vegas

Nineteen of the twenty five largest hotels in the world can be found on the Las Vegas strip (that’s by number of rooms rather than overall size), all of them are casino complexes as well as hotels, and many of them offer extra things to see and do as well some of them aimed at the foot traffic that goes past their door. Outside the Mirage for example, every night on the hour from 5pm till 11pm, an artificial volcano ‘erupts’ spewing pina colada scented smoke into the night air. The fountains of...

David Copperfield's magic trick secrets on the moon after Israel's failed Beresheet space launch

An attempt by Israel’s non-profit SpaceIL to land a spacecraft on the moon failed last week, but the lunar lander, named Beresheet, left something on the moon anyway.TechCrunch reports that among the data in Beresheet’s tiny, high-capacity archival devices was a DVD’s worth of “secret technological innovations” created by magician David Copperfield.Those tricks, which hadn’t been released on Earth, are now lost to space.A press release revealing the unexpected space cargo explained the Copperfie...

There may be a copy of Wikipedia somewhere on the moon. Here's how to help find it.

If you've ever worried that humanity will ever wipe itself out so completely that there'll be no record of our civilization for aliens to discover, you can now rest (somewhat) easy. Even if we blow everything on Earth to smithereens tomorrow, there will likely still be a library of 30,000 books, 5,000 languages, plus a complete copy of Wikipedia, somewhere on the moon. The only problem: We don't know exactly where. The library is a project of the Arch Foundation, the same company tha...

David Copperfield’s secret magic techniques crash-landed on the Moon

The loss of Israel’s Beresheet lander during its descent to the lunar surface was unfortunate, but the mission was still largely a success — and has certainly created an interesting cultural artifact on the Moon where it impacted. Perhaps more interesting than we could have known: It turns out David Copperfield stashed the secrets to his illusions onboard, and they may have survived the crash. The data was kept on one of the Arch Mission Foundation’s tiny, high-capacity, high-endurance archival ...
