The 14 Most Important Sci-Fi Directors Of The Last 50 Years

Of all the fictional genres, sci-fi is the one most interested in exploring man's relationship to science and technology, delving into both the possibilities and the consequences of humanity's technological advancements, envisioning futuristic and faraway worlds, and questioning our place in a universe full of unknown wonders. Over the past 50 years, technology has changed our world in previously unimagined ways, and science fiction has adjusted accordingly. While there have been a host of incre...

Star Wars: Visions Review: I’ve Got a Good Feeling About This Anime

It’s time to return to a galaxy far, far away. Amid the ongoing Marvel animated anthology series, What If…?, it is time for Star Wars to enter the genre with Star Wars: Visions, an animated anthology set in a world of lightsaber battles, kyber crystals, and a consistent bad feeling about this. The modern era of Star Wars has been polarizing, with fans generally divided on the quality of the sequel trilogy. Some have criticized the franchise for going down a very safe route (minus The Last Jedi),...

Other Denzel Washington Movies You Should Watch After The Little Things

"The Little Things" is an entertaining throwback to neo-noir investigative thrillers that debuted in January, 2021. The film's pulpy storyline and ambiguous ending elevated it above other "Se7en" wannabes, but really, it was the film's incredible cast that garnered attention. Recent Academy Award winners Rami Malek and Jared Leto brought to depth to their respective roles, but both were overshadowed by their co-star Denzel Washington. One of the most acclaimed actors of all-time, Washington has ...

Star Wars Editor Marcia Lucas Was Furious With Sequel Series, Cried Over The Prequels

When you watch enough movies, the dirty little secret that nobody ever really wants to acknowledge starts to emerge. The vast majority of films aren't terrible or masterpieces -- they're merely okay. Some good stuff, some bad, all combining to make an unspectacular 2.5 out of 5 star film. That's just the way it is! But when it comes to some diehard fans of blockbuster franchises like, say, "Star Wars," suddenly all of that conventional wisdom goes out the window and becomes replaced with charged...

The 20 Best Dystopian Movies Of All Time

The differences between a dystopian story and an apocalyptic one are slight. It's common for a dystopia to set in after an apocalypse, and a dystopian world often hides its true nature, only revealing itself after subtle revelations pile up. H. G. Wells was one of the first writers to popularize dystopian fiction, with "The Sleeper Awakes" using what today's sci-fi fans may recognize as a Douglas Adams gag: A man falls into a coma and wakes up centuries later, his accrued financial interests mak...

Spurs held in first game in Conference League, Roma run riot

Rennes (France) (AFP) – Substitute Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg’s equaliser allowed Tottenham Hotspur to come away with a 2-2 draw from their trip to France to play Rennes in the new Europa Conference League on Thursday.

That lead was swiftly cancelled out by Hojbjerg and in the circumstances it is a good result for Nuno Espirito Santo’s Tottenham after their 3-0...

Darth Vader’s Voice: The Original Voice Versus the Vocals of James Earl Jones

The hulking black-caped figure, “a walking iron lung,” as George Lucas called him in 1977, Darth Vader more than rightly tops a list of the 50 best movie villains of all time as the “gold standard of villainy,” but it took more than inspired costuming to make him so. Vader is a composite creation of several different talents. The quality by which we most know (and fear) him – the booming voice that commands and kills from afar — came, of course, from James Earl Jones. As one of the 20th ...

That means there are more adults than ever with what amounts to be an extra channel of vascular tissue flowing under their wrist.

California’s housing crisis: How much difference will SB 9 zoning law make?

By Manuela Tobias | CalMatters On a few of the vast, verdant lawns in East Sacramento, one of the capital city’s most popular and expensive neighborhoods, yellow-and-black yard signs urge passersby to “save neighborhoods” and keep Sacramento “livable and diverse.” The message symbolizes a big battle taking place at the state Capitol only a few miles away — whether to do away with sacrosanct single-family neighborhoods to address the California housing crisis.
