The Reason Ben Affleck Passed On Directing Man Of Steel

Once upon a time, many eons ago, directors could pass on making a superhero movie or admit the genre doesn't interest them, and it didn't need to be a Big Deal. Such was the case back in 2010, when Ben Affleck affirmed that he declined to helm "Man of Steel," unaware the film (which was known as merely "Untitled Superman Reboot" at that point) would launch a franchise that he would eventually become a major part of.Affleck made his directing debut in 2007 with "Gone Baby Gone," a critically-accl...

Overlooked Holiday Movies That Are Surprisingly Somber

Most winter holiday viewing is drawn from relatively narrow lists of familiar favorites, to the point that even several of our supposedly "alternative" or "contrarian" choices have become well-worn selections. Only particularly crotchety curmudgeons continue to argue against acknowledging "Die Hard" or "Gremlins" as Christmas films anymore, and it's no secret by now how many of Shane Black's scripts are set during Christmas.But there remain obscure oddballs of holiday movies, often available exc...

World's Toughest Foot Race - A Glimpse Into Badwater

This year I had the opportunity to pace and crew Andy Lohn at Badwater. (Race report HERE.) One of my fellow crew members was Luke Thoreson. Luke worked with me to write the book Into The Furnace. Not only is he hilarious, but he is also an exceptional writer. I asked if he'd like to write about his experience with Badwater, and here is what he came up with, along with some more photos I took during the race:I walked a few steps away from the van as the rain continued to pelt down. I was at th...

Kristen Stewart Is Developing A Gay Ghost-Hunting Reality Show

Stewart has been especially busy, portraying the tragic Princess Diana in "Spencer," which has been described as more of a ghost story than a traditional biopic...

Rocky IV Director's Cut Review: Say Bye To Paulie's Robot, Say Hello To A (Mostly) Better Movie

"Rocky IV" is the biggest box office hit in the "Rocky" franchise. It's also one of the sillier entries – an '80s-infused, MTV-adjacent film overloaded with montages and featuring a comic relief robot that Rocky's brother-in-law Paulie may or may not be having sex with. When Sylvester Stallone's recent production "Samaritan" had to shut down due to COVID-19, the actor and filmmaker realized he had a lot of time on his hands, and he wanted to keep busy. His solution: recut "Rocky IV" into somethi...

Now that MTV has answered all our prayers by bringing back TRL, I thought I'd get nostalgic for a minute to remind all the youngins what the O.G. music matriarch of cable TV once was. This show paved the way for Carson Daly, it made photo booths cool, and once it even shut down Times Fucking Square when the Backstreet Boys showed up to release Black and Blue. They had to lower the shades, people!So please enjoy these photos that only ever graced things like Teen People Magazine and my binder. ...

Real People who Look Like Cartoon Characters

Cartoon character designers generally start designing a character based on a single personality attribute that the character will portray throughout the animation. For example, if the character has a dorky personality, the character designer will try to portray this by creating a dorky-looking character. For villains and heroes, the character designer will give the character's physical appearance the appropriate attributes.  Sometimes character designers need inspiration, and so they'll look a...

"Le Balayeur" is a great cartoon that aired on MTV's Liquid Televison in the 90s

Hulu's Next NY Times Documentary Is About The Janet Jackson Super Bowl Scandal

Back in 2004, the Super Bowl halftime show shocked audiences when Justin Timberlake ripped open half of Janet Jackson's top to expose the singer's breast and a large piece of nipple jewelry for 9/16ths of a second. It was a moment that made pop culture history, put the term "wardrobe malfunction" into common vernacular, and sent certain sects of the population into an uproar. But for some reason, only one of the pop stars involved suffered due to the controversy, while the other skyrocketed to e...

Matt Smith Says His Cut Star Wars Character Was A 'Big Shift' In The History Of The Franchise

Matt Smith can do it all: "Doctor Who" heartthrob, British royalty in "The Crown," and he most recently gave a performance that was equal parts seductive and alarmingly sinister in Edgar Wright's "Last Night in Soho." He was also in "Terminator Genisys" that one time but, uh, we don't talk about that. In any case, the man obviously has a face made for both the small and big screen, with ample talent and screen presence to spare. At one point, however, it looked as if Smith was just about to add ...

The Awe-Inspiring But Tragic Story of Africa’s Festival In The Desert (2001-2012)

“Mali’s gifts to the world of music are lavish and legendary,” Nenad Georgievski writes at All About Jazz, though the world knew little about Malian music until American musicians began partnering with players from West Africa. In the 1980s, Stevie Wonder began touring with Amadou and Mariam, helping to popularize their form of Malian blues. In 1994, Ry Cooder recorded and released Talking Timbuktu with Malian guitarist Ali Farka Touré, whose “desert blues… was unconcerned with boundarie...
