Mike Flanagan Calls Midnight Mass His 'Most Personal' Project Yet

Mike Flanagan has grown to be one of the best horror directors and writers in the business. This is not an exaggeration. From his first few films like "Absentia," "Oculus," and "Ouija: Origin of Evil", Flanagan's talent for writing and directing emotional yet disturbing stories has consistently flourished. He has successfully brought multiple Stephen King novels to the silver screen with "Gerald's Game" and "Doctor Sleep," and has completely subverted while also setting a sophisticated standard ...

Blue Bayou Review: An Urgent Immigrant Story Told With A Thoughtful, But Heavy Hand

"Where are you from?"It's a question that immediately puts Justin Chon's Antonio LeBlanc on edge, and which he avoids answering in his uneasy job interview in "Blue Bayou," Chon's third directorial effort. Antonio was born in Korea, but the only home he's ever known is the Louisiana backwaters. Adopted at three years old by white parents, Antonio spent his childhood jumping from foster home to foster home, until he built a family for himself with his loving, maybe all-too forgiving wife Kathy (a...

Page 69: Unbroken Bonds

    Disclaimer: The Page 69 Test  is not mine. It has been around since 2007, asking authors to compare page 69 against the meat of the actual story it is a part of. I loved the whole idea of it and so I'm stealing it specifically to showcase small press titles - novels, novellas, short story collections, the works!

The 15 Best Debut Films From Directors

A great first film can jumpstart a filmmaker's career and show the world what makes them unique. For example, the conversational dialogue, '70s soundtrack, and nonlinear narrative of Quentin Tarantino's first film "Reservoir Dogs" established tropes that the director still relies on today.Not every great director starts out strong, though. Although he's one of the greatest filmmakers working today, David Fincher's career nearly imploded after his disastrous debut, "Alien 3." Similarly, some dire...

The 15 Best Pixar Scenes Ranked

Over just a few short decades, Pixar has perfected the art of ripping your heart out and showing it to you. For the celebrated animation studio, it's not enough to just make entertaining films for young children. Pixar's filmmakers consistently challenge themselves to produce complex and thoughtful movies that work for both kids and adults. Throughout the studio's tenure, its very best scenes have one of two of these qualities, if not both: immense visual creativity and powerful emotional resona...

‘The Boys’ Season 3 Teaser: Vought News Returns to Reveal a New Superhero’s Ties to Starlight & More

The superhero subgenre has been shaken up by the arrival of The Boys, a pitch-black parody and satire of the current pop culture obsession de jour. The Amazon Prime series, as well as its graphic novel source material written by Garth Ennis, has achieved its popularity by taking an unapologetically political stance in using their messed-up “heroes” to comment on current events. As we wait for new episodes, a new The Boys season 3 teaser has arrived with some more in-universe coverage from the V...

My Heart Can't Beat Unless You Tell It to – review

Director: Jonathan Cuartas Release date: 2020 Contains spoilers The vampire genre is often used as a medium to explore issues. In the case of My Heart Can't Beat Unless You Tell It to, I read the film as an exploration of the life of a care-giver, of the pressures that come to bear – obviously exaggerated as the one they care for is a vampire but such exaggeration can offer insight… What the film also does is offer the viewer a relentlessly bleak vision that didn’t offer a character to overly s...

Comment on double chocolate layer cake by Jessie

This. This is the greatest chocolate cake I have ever made (and I’ve made a LOT). I made 0.4x the recipe to go in a 9”round. It’s moist, flavorful, soft… just really decadent and lovely. My math gymnastics were for a fun combo cake my son wanted and I only needed one chocolate later. I made 2/3 of ganache recipe as well, for the outside only of a 9” double layer cake. It was also delicious.

Comment on best birthday cake by Jessie

Yum! This makes a lot of cake (in a good way). Completely filled my 9” round pans. My vanilla loving child wanted vanilla/vanilla for a birthday and was thrilled. Used vanilla buttercream from confetti cake recipe. It also handles an insane amount of green food coloring if your child is channeling their inner ninja turtle :)

Disneyland polishes Fantasyland’s crown jewel with carousel makeover

If Sleeping Beauty Castle is the focal point of Disneyland, then King Arthur Carrousel is the centerpiece of Fantasyland — and the pulsating heart of Fantasyland is once again bringing the fairy tale themed land to life. King Arthur Carrousel once again shines like the crown jewel of Fantasyland after Disneyland’s maintenance crew replaced the carousel’s steel canopy and freshened up the hand-carved horses during the 13-month coronavirus closure of Disneyland. The Fantasyland carousel returned w...

‘The Irregulars’ Trailer: Who Needs Sherlock Holmes When You Have Victorian Street Kids With Superpowers?

The Irregulars is a show where Sherlock Holmes is missing in action. Dr. John Watson is still lurking about, though, and he’s recruited a gang of street urchins to do his bidding. That gang is the Irregulars, teens who get sucked into a world where the supernatural is lurking around every street corner.

How will Disney California Adventure change over the next 20 years?

Disney California Adventure is almost unrecognizable after 20 years of growth and evolution following an inauspicious start, but there’s still plenty of opportunity for Disneyland’s underappreciated and underestimated next door neighbor to change over the next 20 years. As DCA celebrates its 20th anniversary, I thought it would be a good time to take a wildly speculative look at what Disney’s second Anaheim theme park might look like two decades from now. What will still be around when DCA reach...

How Black barbers have become mental health advocates for African American men

Ray Connor traces his ambition to be a barber back to when he was a kid in Detroit. Growing up, he was abused. He watched his mother battle drug and alcohol addictions. He often went to bed hungry. When he needed to get away, he went down to A Cut Above Barber Shop on Eight Mile Road for a fresh cut and some companionship from his barber, Jessie. The relationship carried him through some of the darkest days of his life.
