Whicker: Bryson DeChambeau’s lab work pays off on Augusta’s back nine

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Bryson DeChambeau never has made a hole-in-one. But, you know, he’s been busy. Unable to figure out why his wedge shots weren’t performing just so, he had a little research session back home at Dallas National, one of Tom Fazio’s proudest designs. It lasted 14 hours. “They talk about over-thinking,” DeChambeau said. “Sometimes that’s necessary to go down the rabbit hole and say, okay, that doesn’t work. Overthinking eventually gets you to the answer. You just have to keep going do...

Amazon, Google Forays Into Banking Seen as Threat by RBC’s CEO

The lender’s chief executive officer told investors on Tuesday that he’s increasingly worried about the so-called FANG companies -- Facebook Inc., Inc., Netflix Inc. and Google parent Alphabet Inc. -- getting into banking. The companies are already inserting themselves between the bank and its customers as people increasingly turn to the technology giants when shopping for financial services, McKay said. “They are getting between us and the moments of truth of our customers, and cur...

You Can Now Watch the Deleted ‘Vice’ Musical Number

Adam McKay‘s Vice is a very off-the-wall biopic of Dick Cheney, but there was one moment apparently too wacky to include: a musical number. The number comes early in the film, where Christian Bale‘s Cheney is learning the ins and outs of politics from Steve Carell‘s Donald Rumsfeld. McKay talked about the scene previously, and verified it would be included on the Blu-ray release. Now, as the Blu-ray and digital release approaches, the scene is finally available for all to see.

Amazon’s This Giant Beast That Is the Global Economy Takes Liberal-Bro Humor on a World Tour

Oscars 2019: Before you bet on the Academy Awards, you might want to read this

Here are my expert Oscar predictions. And my “expert” advice is: Don’t bet on anything this year! At least not in the Best Picture race. Yes, it’s been hard to predict that winner since the academy expanded the nomination count and introduced a preferential balloting system for the category about 10 years ago. But other factors make this one the biggest free-for-all Best Picture race of the decade. For one thing, all of the major Hollywood guilds have given their highest honors to different film...

Devourer of Planets: Dissecting the Nuance-Free Yet Brilliant Filmmaking of Adam McKay’s ‘Vice’

Vice bides its time, at least at first. It opens with a brief, Paul Greengrass-style glimpse of the Situation Room on 9/11. Accompanying this cinéma vérité are snippets of all the war and torture that would follow; Adam McKay, now on a roll after The Big Short , is as much a documentarian or video essayist as he is a fiction filmmaker, setting the stage for events that we, the public, are all too familiar with. However, the film’s opening credits don’t arrive until 12 minutes later. In the ...

Adam McKay Says ‘Vice’ Inspires ‘Most Extreme Reaction of Anything I’ve Ever Worked On’

In “Vice,” writer-director Adam McKay swings for the fences, mixing styles, tone, and techniques for a funny, devastating, and important look at American politics in the 21st century. “The underlying premise of the movie is, ‘The world right now is uniquely, and potentially catastrophically, in trouble,’” McKay says. “That is never a cool message.

The 10 Most Disturbing Movie Scenes of 2018

We’re nearly a month into the new year, but before we let 2019 rejuvenate our motivations, why not take one last stroll down 2018’s memory lane?  More appropriately, the thorn-lined backroad of memory lane where there is no light – only torment and pain.
