Are American Remakes of International Films Good, Evil, or…Just Movies?

Hollywood isn’t the only source of blockbusters anymore. International film industries generate hits with the same frequency, on scales local and sometimes even global, often outgrossing American studio films. But such is the imperial dominance of Hollywood, any time a major hit emerges from outside the English-speaking world, conversation immediately gravitates toward a potential American remake. Hollywood just can’t keep its mitts off an idea that might make money. But while this process is ...

‘The Eternals’ trailer shows Marvel’s first gay superhero…and it’s not who we thought

Brian Tyree Henry. Via YouTube Have a grain of salt ready, folks.

A shot from the film apparently shows an out-gay man holding hands with his boyfriend, confirming that the character is not the hero Ikarus.

The terrible "Blurred Lines" copyright decision is now threatening Lil Nas X and Cardi B

Back in 2015, the Marvin Gaye estate secured a bizarre copyright judgment against Pharrell Williams and Robin Thicke over their hit song "Blurred Lines," in which the Gaye estate argued (successfully) that even though "Blurred Lines" didn't copy Gaye's songs, it copied the feeling of Gaye's music -- that is, that Thicke and Williams made a song that reminded people of Gaye. This was a catastrophically bad ruling, since it required that musicians pretend that they had no musical influences, ...

Fantasia Film Review: ‘The Outlaws’

While police brutality as slapstick may not be everyone’s cup of tea, it certainly does get laughs in “The Outlaws.” This hectic action-comedy, based, however loosely, on gang warfare in Seoul over the past decade, stars the estimable Ma Dong-Seok aka Don Lee (“Train to Busan”) as a police investigator who simply bulldozes through all […]

New bracketless front LS and LT front drive system from Holley

It’s pretty rare to come across a new way to do a common thing. Years ago, billet hood hinges were introduced and since then other makers have turned out mostly cosmetic variations of the same idea. It’s been the same with pulley kits. Sure, every company has its own way of making it happen, but in the end they all share the same basic idea of brackets and bolts to hold the needed accessories in place on the front of the engine. Well, Holley is fairly new to the complete drive system world so ma...

A 5.3L that shows you don’t need to go broke to enjoy some LS power in your Chevy

The biggest complaint about LS-type engines is they cost a lot of coin to get into. Yeah, the typical LS mill will bleed more cash from your wallet compared to a traditional small-block, but if you’re careful and don’t need a bazillion hp, then it can be more of a flesh wound instead of a gushing flow of Benjamins. You see, not every LS build has to be a dry-sump LS7 or 600+ hp stroked LS3. There are many LS variants out there and some of them are downright affordable. Shop smart and set realist...

In New Documentaries, Nora Ephron And Joan Rivers Rightfully Contain Multitudes

Anyone who's trudged through a writing course has inevitably heard a thing or two about "finding your voice." People can spend their life's work struggling to determine how they want to portray themselves to the world. And then there are those who make it look easy, as is the case in two new documentaries about women who seemed never to need a classroom to shape their voices. Both Joan Rivers and Nora Ephron are late embodiments of the dualities that exist in all of us, as well as e xamples...
