Belle Director Mamoru Hosoda Wants To Create A Kinder Digital World [Interview]

With "Belle," director Mamoru Hosoda dares to imagine a kinder internet. It seems like a fantasy, right? In this day and age, when people can be radicalized to believe all sorts of dangerous conspiracy theories or global pandemics are drawn out because of the proliferation of mistrust and paranoia, a kind internet seems like an impossible dream. But in Hosoda's digital-inspired reimagining of "Beauty of the Beast," it is possible. "I felt it was important to tell another story about this sort of...

Belle Review: A Tale As Old As Time Is Given A Dazzling Digital Reskin

It's a tale, well, as old as time. Girl meets boy, girl and boy fall in love, girl and boy live happily ever after. But in "Belle," Mamoru Hosoda's digital reimagining of the classic French fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast," that's not quite the case.The words "digital reimagining of 'Beauty and the Beast'" might elicit an immediate gag reflex. Especially when that digital reimagining takes place in a virtual-reality world where our protagonist is a beloved musical diva who holds regular spectac...

Pop Culture Imports: Your Streaming Guide To Belle Director Mamoru Hosoda

2022 Toyota Mirai: Turning Zero-Emissions Driving Into a Stylish Affair

The 2022 Toyota Mirai is fresh from a generational redesign in 2020. The second-gen Mirai is a different type of animal from the first-gen model unveiled in 2015.

It also has an updated hydrogen fuel cell that delivers 30 percent more driving range than before. What’s more, the 2022 Mirai is b...

The Best Anime Movies You Can Stream On Netflix Right Now

Japanese animation, also known as anime, is a lot of things -- but "only for children" is not one of them. Any fans of anime TV series and movies will be able to tell you that anime spans all genres: romantic comedies to fantastic tales, sci-fi epics to philosophical narratives. It's all animated, but it's not necessarily for kids. Anime can be as goofy and family-friendly as the newest Pixar flick, or as deep, mature, and stylish as the latest indie darling. It's a medium, not a genre. It can d...

20 Movies About Time Travel Ranked Worst To Best

The notion of time travel is both inherently human (who wouldn't want the opportunity to see what the world will be like after they're gone, or to revisit the cherished memories of the past?) and intensely cinematic. So, it makes sense that it's a theme we see revisited in film time and time again. However, while time travel is rooted in science fiction, time travel movies embrace a variety of different genres. We're not limited to just sci-fi action-adventures (there are plenty of those, though...

Desk Diary 20210517

Has it really been 5 years since I wrote the last Desk Diary? Life at work and home has changed drastically - and so has my workspaces too. I'm still constantly on the look to optimize my workspace which involves experimenting with what I need - and looking at what I can do without. I've been living in this apartment for the past few years now. It's literally a stone's throw away from work - not including the elevator wait, it's a 30 second run from door to door ;-) The apartment is small so I ...
