5 Unexpected Funeral Expenses You Should Prepare For

One of the final scenes of my favorite movie The Big Lebowski features John Goodman’s and Jeff Bridges’ characters arguing with a funeral director over the cost of their friend Donny’s funeral. At one point, John Goodman (who plays a constantly angry character) shouts, “Look, just because we’re bereaved doesn’t make us SAPS!” After having recently gone through a family funeral of my own, I find myself more sympathetic toward the character’s outrage. When it comes to funeral expenses, it can see...

20 Years Ago, ‘O Brother, Where Art Thou?’ Transformed George Clooney Into the Actor We Know Today

George Clooney has been the protean ideal of a movie star for so long that it’s hard to recall a time when his presence on the big screen was more typified by playing the Caped Crusader in a comically terrible film. Even now that box office results have been decimated by the pandemic, there are few actors who perfectly embody the notion of what it is to be an old-fashioned movie star like Clooney. His always-at-100 smile, his dapper style, and a public look that often recalls the masculinity o...

What Trump Has Done to Change Health Care and How It’s Helped Battle COVID-19

Our health-care system is experiencing rapid, powerful change, far more consequential than is generally recognized. Although these changes are welcomed by many in the health-policy community (see our assessment a year ago), even those who applaud them have been surprised at their speed and impact.What follows is a brief overview of what the Trump administration has done to reform the health-care system — in some cases, with the compliant help of Congress. The vision behind the Trump reforms can ...

‘Shrek 2’ Honest Trailer: The One Starring the Love Child of Gaston and John Goodman

If there’s one franchise that hasn’t aged as well as some of its animated counterparts, it’s the Shrek franchise. Chock full of dated pop culture references and animation that looks uglier than other animated movies that came out around the same time, these movie also got worse as they went on. Therefore, it should come as no surprise that Shrek 2 is a big step down from its predecessor, and with the benefit of hindsight, that makes it even worse since the original Shrek isn’t quite as good as ...

From "Linda Tripp, whose tapes exposed Clinton affair, dies at 70" (AP).While defending the taping as necessary to protect herself if her credibility were questioned, Tripp also consulted with a New York literary agent before beginning her secret recordings. Her initial concerns proved warranted when officials and pundits questioned her motives and attacked her character.Tripp soon became a recognizable member of the wide cast of characters in the impeachment drama, so much so that actor John Go...

Crooked preachers and sexy priests: has TV got a problem with Christianity?

Christians on TV were once limited to ethical debates and Songs of Praise. But from Fleabag to The Righteous Gemstones, portrayals are now less pious and more provocativeShocking as it may seem to newer viewers of British TV, there used to be a BBC-ITV ratings battle between shows in which viewers sang hymns and told Bible stories.The Sunday stand-off between the public service Songs of Praise and the commercial Highway was the biggest manifestation of what broadcasters called the “God slots”.

If they gave out Oscars for best use of Southern California locations, we know who the big winner would be at this year’s Academy Awards. Because even if you haven’t seen “Once Upon a Time … In Hollywood,” writer-director Quentin Tarantino’s ode to the film industry’s company town circa 1969, you probably know it’s a non-stop travelogue through the town of the title and surrounding environs. But it’s not the only locally shot film with a nomination: There are three up for a best picture Academy ...

Pope slap.

I approve. The Pope — and anyone else who's doing personal, physical contact with a crowd— gets to decide where he stops. He kept going until he got to a child, and, yes, that's disappointing to the last person who would have been touched if the toucher had not stopped exactly where he did.(That happened to me once. Not with the Pope. With Ray Davies, who I'm sure was more important to me than he was to the last person he touched.)Now, that woman not only reached out and touched him, she grabbed...

The Best Movie Music of the Decade

(This article is part of our Best of the Decade series.) Film may have started as a visual medium, but from its earliest days music has been used as a fundamental aspect of its presentation. From tack piano and organs to sweeping orchestral suites, through to modern electronic soundscapes and hipster-approved needle-drops, the soundtracks to our favourite films play an indelible role in our appreciation of these remarkable movies. Some use music as a fundamental narrative point, while others d...
