‘Jungle Cruise’ Wants to Be the Next ‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ With a Dash of ‘Romancing the Stone’ [Set Visit Report]

It looked like an amusement park. An amusement park that has been plucked out of the 20th century Amazon, but an amusement park, nonetheless. Disney’s “Adventureland” by way of 1910s Brazil, according to people much more well-versed in theme parks than me on a press visit to the set of director Jaume Collet-Serra‘s Jungle Cruise. A lifetime ago (all the way back in the before times of 2018), I had the chance to visit the set of Disney’s new action-adventure movie starring Dwayne Johnson and ...

Comment on best cocoa brownies by Karen

Hi Deb – I’ve made these twice now and this time I used Valhrona cocoa powder and really good vanilla. I still feel like I’m missing a little flavor intensity. And they aren’t as fudgy as I’d like. I may be overcooking them. My main question is when you say: “3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons (65 grams, may vary by brands)” which of these should I go with when they differ? When I weighed my cocoa powder I got to 65 grams long before I had 3/4C + 2T’s worth of it. So should I stop at 65 grams or go up t...

For Employers, Facebook is So Yesterday. Welcome to the TikTok World.

As we head into the weekend and look to unwind from another difficult week, it’s time to discuss another (not-quite-as) serious issue as the pandemic. I used to think that Katherine Hepburn was the most famous performer from Connecticut. However, my teenager tells me during this Stay-at-Home period that I’m wrong: It is Charli D’Amelio. If you have a teenager, you know what I’m talking about. For the rest of you, let me explain and explain why I’m convinced that employers still worried about Fac...

Dennis McCarthy: Lift those martinis! It’s about time we all toasted movie pioneer Dorothy Arzner

“Isn’t it wonderful you had such a great career, when you had no right to have a career at all.” – A telegram from Katherine Hepburn to Dorothy Arzner.  Ah, where to begin with Dorothy Arzner? With her early career as the first woman in Hollywood to direct silent movies and talkies? With all the female movie careers she helped launch, or her star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame where tourists stop and wonder who she was? Or maybe we should start closer to home, in the Winnetka living room of Ann You...

Fake It Till You Make It

It’s easy to look at self-assured people and wish, “Oh, if only I could be that confident, that self-assured, that easy-going.” Well, let me tell you that lots of those people, who look so self-assured, aren’t. They feel shy, shaky, even terrified on the inside, yet they present as competent and confident on the outside. Don’t believe me? Listen to the successful actress Katherine Hepburn who confessed that, “Everyone thought I was bold and fearless, even arrogant, but inside I was always quakin...

All the ‘Little Women’ Movie Adaptations, Ranked

Some stories are such universal classics that Hollywood will frequently go back to tell them…again, and again. But we can always use another Little Women movie. Louisa May Alcott‘s coming-of-age classic tells the story of the four March sisters growing up in Civil War America as they struggle with poverty, societal pressures, and the pangs of first love. But the four “little women” always manage to find the joy in little things, and forge their own paths as women in a time when life was not eas...

'Remember the Night' (1940)

Actor Fred MacMurray was mostly in two types of films—fast-talking comedies before World War II and twisted film noirs after. Other than Double Indemnity in 1944, his noirs were largely lackluster, not because of his acting, which was flawless. MacMurray always brought a strapping, modern handsomeness to the screen and was convincing as a cop or con. Most of the noirs fell short because they were poorly written. As for the fast-talking comedies, MacMurray was peerless. Dialogue moved briskly, ...

Whicker: Riviera’s ill winds blow the winner’s check out of Thomas’ hands

PACIFIC PALISADES — A golf ball weighs 1.62 ounces. It can still buckle a golfer’s knees. They were writing Justin Thomas’ name on the big check Sunday morning at the Genesis Open. He was at 18-under-par and leading by five shots. Riviera’s soggy grounds and the endless days and the bone-piercing chill of the evening had not touched him all week. Then Thomas watched a birdie putt on 17 give a head-fake toward the cup at Riviera and then turn away. Thomas pointed agonizingly to his right, and the...

The 10 Best Leonardo DiCaprio Movies

The 10 best Leonardo DiCaprio movies Leonardo DiCaprio is one of the biggest movie stars of the last three decades. Getting his start early in Hollywood, the man simply known as Leo, showed he was headed for big things in his role as Arnie Grape in What’s Eating Gilbert Grape. From his breakout success, DiCaprio has gone from teen heartthrob to serious actor to Oscar winner. His lack of an Oscar seemed criminal until his big break for the 2015 film The Revenant. His career has always led him...

Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson Welcome You Aboard ‘Jungle Cruise’ in a Charming On-Set Video

Welcome aboard Jungle Cruise, where Dwayne Johnson wears a tiny captain’s hat, Emily Blunt is elegantly disheveled, and Johnson totally messes up Katherine Hepburn’s name. He insults a legend! How dare he! But we’ll forgive him this once because of that adorable little captain’s cap that looks too tiny atop the Rock’s giant body — which isn’t wearing a khaki shirt for once! Emily Blunt and Dwayne Johnson happily shared a video from the set of Jungle Cruise, Jaume Collet-Serra‘s adaptation of...

9 things NOT to do in Venice

Traveling to Venice? Here’s the ultimate shortlist of recommendations for how not to spend your time, money, energy, and dignity while not further tourist-ing this delicate island city to death. 1. Do NOT go to Harry’s Bar. I once met a barman at the Paris Ritz Hemingway Bar who had a theory about how this well-known Venice spot (an Italian national landmark, even) serves such reliably disappointing drinks for such absurd prices. He speculated that Mr. Cip’s unique business plan for Harry’s...

Blunt will co-star alongside Dwayne Johnson in the upcoming film helmed by Orphan and The Shallows director Jaume Collet-Serra.

Five things you didn’t know about “Over the Rainbow”

“Over the Rainbow,” with music by Harold Arlen and E. Y. “Yip” Harburg, is one of the most beloved songs of all time, especially as sung by Judy Garland in her role as Dorothy Gale in the 1939 MGM film The Wizard of Oz.  The song itself is familiar all over the world. But some things you probably didn’t know: 1. Before Arlen and Harburg wrote this ballad in June 1938, another composer on MGMS’s staff named Roger Edens had drafted a totally different song for this place in the screenplay, a jaunt...

The Varieties of Meet

[Scott Myers over at Go Into the Story is doing a great week-long study of rom-com "meet-cutes" next week - do check it out - and he asked me for my two cents on the topic...] The variety of meet-cutes (or cute meets) in romantic comedy is as vast as the multitude of ways in which any human being can first encounter a prospective mate. This essential beat can be as mundane as the common “Whoops!” moment (e.g. a street corner collision w/spilled beverage, technically the second meet-cute in Nott...
