A Knight’s Tale Should Have Made Heath Ledger a Superstar

Twenty short years ago, audiences were treated to Brian Helgeland’s vastly underrated medieval sports drama, A Knight’s Tale. No, really. It’s been twenty years! God, I’m old. The film was a modest hit, grossing $117.5 million worldwide against a $65 million budget, despite tepid reviews from critics who couldn’t get past the numerous anachronisms knowingly sprinkled throughout the production — the film opens with a rendition of Queen’s “We Will Rock You,” for cripes’ sake! And features a dance...

UCLA’s defense returns experience and leadership

Familiarity is key for UCLA’s defense in 2021. When Chip Kelly paired Jerry Azzinaro with Brian Norwood to run the defense, the Bruins took a step forward during a pandemic-shortened 2020 season. The defensive unit returns leadership and experience while losing just one defensive starter, defensive linemen Osa Odighizuwa, to the NFL. Azzinaro was brought back to be the Bruins’ defensive coordinator for a fourth season, after his contract was renewed during the offseason. Norwood is back for a se...

El Segundo locals tell the story of what it’s like being ‘Black in Mayberry’ in new film

These are the voices of El Segundo. The city’s residents are sharing their experiences with racism in “Black in Mayberry,” a new film inspired by Black Lives Matter protests in El Segundo. The film aims to tell the stories that may not always be discussed between people of different races. One young woman talks about how she always dresses in bright athletic gear when she’s jogging to make it clear that she is exercising and not running from something. Another talks about the pressure of being t...

A Look At Spencer Knight

from Emily Kaplan of ESPN, The NHL is a league of time-tested traditions, and one of the players' favorites is the rookie solo lap. Last week, before Florida Panthers goalie Spencer Knight made his NHL debut, it was his turn. "Usually guys are excited, pumped up, going full speed," said former NHL goaltender Roberto Luongo, who now oversees the Panthers' Goaltending Excellence department. "I was watching Spencer, and he was just like strolling around the rink. Casual." Aft...

Deconstructing Justice Thomas’ Pro-Censorship Statement in Knight First Amendment v. Trump

Last week, the Supreme Court vacated the Second Circuit’s Knight v. Trump ruling. The Second Circuit held that Trump violated the First Amendment when he blocked other Twitter users from engaging with his @realdonaldtrump account. Other courts are holding that government officials can’t block social media users from their official accounts, but they can freely block from personal or campaign accounts. Vacating the Second Circuit opinion probably won’t materially change that caselaw. That outcom...

The Goaltending Situation For The Florida Panthers

from Ken Campbell of The Hockey News, The best goalie outside the NHL suddenly isn’t outside the NHL anymore. And just as suddenly, the Florida Panthers’ crease just got a lot more crowded. When the Panthers announced they had signed former Boston College and U.S. World Junior standout Spencer Knight to an entry-level deal Wednesday, it was with the clear intent that he stay with the NHL team the rest of this season. In fact, don’t be the least bit surprised if Knight, selected 13th o...

Laika is Expanding to Live-Action for the First Time With Thriller ‘Seventeen’

Laika burst onto the scene with 2009’s Coraline, a critically acclaimed dark fantasy film that heralded the start of an innovative new stop-motion animated studio. Over the past 12 years, Laika has released four more feature films, all of them critical darlings but only a few of them box office hits. Stop-motion animation is a difficult, tedious business that requires animators to put in hours of work for a few seconds of footage.

Modular housing could be an answer to the housing crisis

Two years ago, CalMatters housing writer Matt Levin described a factory in Vallejo that was building housing modules that could quickly — and relatively inexpensively — be assembled into multi-story apartment houses. Levin described the factory as more resembling an automobile assembly line than a construction site. “They build one floor approximately every two and a half hours,” Larry Pace, co-founder of Factory OS, told Levin. “It’s fast.” Modular construction offers a potential solution to on...

Mystery and Crime Knight, Eric: You Play the Black and the Red Comes up; v1; 8 Mar 2021

British author Eric Knight is best remembered as the author of "Lassie Come-Home", the best selling sentimental animal novel; he also wrote the whimsical fantasy "Sam Small Flies again". (Both are in this Library). This novel shows just how versatile he was: it's a hard-boiled "noir" novel of the USA depression, authentic in style and downbeat in tone, and he wrote it in 1938, BEFORE the other two.
