‘The Devil In the White City’ Movie is Now a Hulu Series From Leonardo DiCaprio and Martin Scorsese

Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio were hoping to one day adapt Erik Larson’s fantastic book The Devil in the White City into a feature film, with Scorsese directing, and DiCaprio starring as the notorious H.H. Holmes, thought to be America’s first serial killer. But now, things have changed. Instead of a movie, we’re getting a Devil in the White City Hulu show, and while Scorsese and DiCaprio will still be producing, it’s doubtful their involvement will go much further than that. And that’s...

Programmatic Brainwashing

This should give you the creeps. A company called The Spinner has launched a service that allows for native ad micro-targeting. And no-one is happy about it; the service is, to put it mildly, questionable; a form of “inception marketing”. The Spinner adds individual targeting and stealth to marketing. The Spinner does this for the customer: You sign up for a chosen package, like convince your ex to get back together with you.You get a link to send to your ex.You send the li...

Who wants to tax a millionaire? It's not a game show, but the latest Congressional and political campaign theme

We're about to go into a tax filing season under a new tax law that, despite plan promoters' promises, gives major tax breaks to wealthier taxpayers. That law, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA), is also why a lot of Democrats are looking at ways to at least revise the Republican-written tax bill. The U.S. Constitution says that tax measures must originate in the House of Representat...

‘Once Upon a Time in Hollywood’ Images Show Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, Margot Robbie, Al Pacino in 1969 Attire

Once Upon a Time in Hollywood is director Quentin Tarantino‘s ode to 1969, a year of great political upheaval in the U.S. – and the year of the Manson Murders. The Hateful Eight director has earned some flack for making a film involving the shocking murders of Sharon Tate at the hands of Charles Manson’s followers, but in  Tarantino’s own words , the film is “not Charles Manson, it’s 1969.” And the first set of official Once Upon a Time in Hollywood images prove the movie is as steeped in the c...

Welcome to The Bachelor , where exercising in groups in front of a prospective future husband is a fun activity!

Movies You Won’t Believe Are Based On True Stories

At first glance, the script for War Dogs probably read like an outlandish action comedy.How could a couple of stoner dudes from Miami secure a $300 million contract to supply arms to the U.S. government? How could the Pentagon supply tens of millions of shoddy weapons to Afghani troops fighting Al Qaeda and the Taliban? How could the U.S. government be tricked into purchasing decomposing, 40-year-old munitions that were culled from a Communist surplus stockpile or manufactured cheaply in China ...

The Bachelor Season 23 Premiere Recap: Like Sloths To A Flame

These days, a good Bachelor is hard to find. Which means that every Bachelor has two missions: To fall in love, and to prove to the viewers that he’s at all ready for that love. I hesitate to say that Colton Underwood isn’t ready for love — who is? — but, from the premiere of The Bachelor season 23, I can say definitively that he’s got a chip on his shoulder about all of this. Colton reads the comments section. He may even comment back. Which, like it or not, is going to make an interesting sea...

Guillermo del Toro Names Spielberg’s Catch Me If You Can the Most Underrated Great Movie of All Time

Director Guillermo del Toro, as one Twitter wag put it recently, is the kind of film friend we’d all love to have--a great conversationalist, a good listener, a fan at heart, and an encyclopedic knowledge of the form. And while it’s not rare to hear him praise Steven Spielberg, this recent Twitter post most people by surprise: Catch Me If You Can is honestly a film I haven’t thought about since I watched it in the theaters. That’s not to say it was bad--it was an enjoyable romp with Le...

8 failed Kickstarters that were too pure for 2018

Crowdfunding is cool. Countless number of awesome things started on sites like Kickstarter, hit their funding goal, and then entered the real world. Unfortunately, there’s a dark side to crowdfunding: projects that never get the required amount of capital and fail. This is heartbreaking enough, but what if the product was truly, deeply, and utterly necessary? What if the item being funded was vital to the future of humanity? What if it fucking and totally rocked? Well, I’m sorry Leonardo DiCapri...

2019 movie preview: Marvel looms large, but look who else is prepping releases

Before we get into the most obvious thing about the upcoming movies for 2019 – which is, Marvel is going to make a lot of money, again – can we first look forward to some great filmmakers who’ll be doing exactly what they want to do? Like Martin Scorsese, whose Netflix-backed “The Irishman” reunites our greatest living filmmaker with old cronies Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci and Harvey Keitel, and tosses Al Pacino into the bargain. It’s a mob epic that spans decades, with a lot of digital de-aging, ...
