Midnight Mass Star Kate Siegel On Performing That Monologue And Embracing Obsession [Interview]

Erin's faith in "Midnight Mass" is complicated yet pure. She's someone seeking community and peace, but at the same time, that respectful desire was born out of hardship and tragedy. She escaped her home and her mother, who called her a "godless heathen," only to return and continue to struggle with the past. She's one of the many rich characters in "Midnight Mass," which is another Mike Flanagan project that delivers equally compelling drama and horror. For actor Kate Siegel, who also starred i...

The 14 Greatest Biopics Of The 21st Century

The traditional biopic seems like it should be pretty easy to make. After all, the subject has already done all the hard work. You just need to pick the best bits of their lives and slap them up on the big screen, right? But that's where things start to get tricky. Do you recreate a list of chronological events that follow the subject from the cradle to grave, and hope that a classically-trained English actor can elevate the film beyond its fairly uninspired structure? Do hone in on one specific...

Five Things We Want to See in Disney’s Rocketeer Sequel

A wise man once said, “With great power comes great responsibility.” Disney and producers David and Jessica Oyelowo would do well to heed that principle as they try their hand at a Rocketeer sequel. I mean, come on, this is The Rocketeer we’re talking about here! The 1991 Joe Johnston would-be epic that crashed and burned at the box office but went on to become something of a minor classic among film nerds like me who respect its lavish set and costume design, simplistic heroes, dastardly villai...

Thirty Years Later The Rocketeer Is Still Underappreciated

The Rocketeer soared into theaters on this date 30 years ago and crashed harder than Cliff Secord’s Gee Bee racer. Despite high production values, a solid marketing campaign selling the promise of Indiana Jones-sized adventure — replete with pre-WWII Nazis — the Disney vehicle barely recouped its $40 million budget at the box office and zipped into the night as a rare misfire for the Mouse House. Critics were mixed. Roger Ebert described the film as an Indy copycat that lifted sequences, such a...

Social Distancing Guidelines for the Garden

For over a year I have looked forward to a time when there would no longer be the heavy burden of social distancing. Visits with friends were scarce during the pandemic.

I was safe in the garden. Thanksgiving with my brother-in-law Milton Cooper I grow many plants that have personal stories. They mean much more to m...

A psychiatrist explains why stockpiling and panic buying during the pandemic isn't the same as hoarding

Hoarding disorder affects more than 13 million American adults.

Trump lies that travel ban is for 'jihadist regions,' says Democrat mayors 'wouldn't mind' if terrorists blew up their cities

This press conference Donald Trump is doing in the Rose Garden today is really something else. Whew. After bashing Joe Biden, AOC, and the European Union, Trump just referred to his travel ban as restricting travel from “jihadist regions.” In a confused, stream-of-grievances rant, Trump said Biden wants to "end all travel bans including from Jihadist regions." “We got the travel ban,” Trump then said. “We have a very strong travel ban and we don't want people that are going to come in and blo...
