Bruce Lee's Kato Kicks Off Diamond Select Toys' Green Hornet Line [Exclusive]

With all the brouhaha over the depiction of Bruce Lee in "Once Upon a Time in Hollywood" (and its recent novelization), getting lost in the conversation is the show that Lee himself was shooting amid the context of Quentin Tarantino's film -- namely, the classic superhero show "The Green Hornet." To help memorialize the series that ran on ABC from 1966-1967 and its legendary co-lead, Diamond Select Toys is partnering with The Green Hornet Inc. and the Bruce Lee Family on a new line of collectibl...

Movies Like Inception That Are Definitely Worth Watching

Michel Gondry Creates a Burger King Ad That Touts New Research on Reducing Cow Flatulence & Climate Change

As every grade schooler knows (and delights in working into conversation), cows have a tendency towards flatulence. At first this just deterred kids from going into animal husbandry, but now those kids have come to associate the phenomenon of farting livestock with a larger issue of interest to them: climate change. From cows' rear ends comes methane, "one of the most harmful greenhouse gases and a major contributor to climate change," as Adam Satariano puts it in a recent New York Times...

An Animated Introduction to Noam Chomsky’s Groundbreaking Linguistic Theories

Most people who know Noam Chomsky know him equally as a giant in academic linguistics and a longtime leftist dissident and political commentator. Only a committed few, however, read much of his work in either—or both—fields. He is one of those thinkers whose major concepts enter the discourse unmoored from their original context. Phrases like “universal grammar” and “manufactured consent” tend to pop up in all kinds of places without reference to Chomsky’s meanings. If you simply haven’t...

Trains Speed Through the Swiss Countryside to Techno Beats

Tessa Thompson Played the Kate Winslet Role in an Eternal Sunshine Live Read, and We Were There

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind is a damn near perfect film. A film that has, and will, stand the test of time and should not be tinkered with or remade ever.

Yet Another ‘Green Hornet’ Reboot is in the Works

Nothing in Hollywood stays dead forever, which means it’s time for a Green Hornet reboot.

A comedic big-screen adaptation arrived in 2011, with Seth Rogen in the lead. Now, Amasia Entertainment is setting out to make a new Green Hornet film.

‘Welcome to Marwen’ and When Creative License Goes Wrong

Adapting true stories into feature films is a tricky task. It’s even more difficult when audiences have already seen the actual subject – in documentaries, for example. More difficult again is the process of adapting a story that does not conform to conventional story structure. Robert Zemeckis’ Welcome to Marwen, which arrives on Blu-ray and DVD today, is a prime example: a film with admirable intent and concept, but devastatingly clumsy execution that does a disservice to its subject materia...

“Random thoughts for Valentine’s Day 2004.

Jim Carrey’s voice is laced with melancholy and wry humor as he lets us in on the internal monologue of his character, Joel Barish. It’s a far cry from the sassy voice that launched him to movie stardom ten years earlier in Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. Yet there’s a whole contingent of movie...
