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...

Every Ghostbusters: Afterlife Main Character Ranked Worst To Best

The development of the "Ghostbusters" franchise has been fascinating to watch unfold. Ivan Reitman's 1984 original is one of the rare movies that could be described as "perfect." How could you possibly combine fantasy, broad comedy, horror, satire, sharp dialogue, improv, and the strong personalities of the cast into a comprehensive 105 minutes? Not every beloved classic of the '80s holds up in a modern context, but "Ghostbusters" has proven it can stand the test of time.Expectations were certai...

The 14 Best Moments In Ghostbusters: Afterlife

The funniest Twitter thread of the year wasn't just a merciless evisceration of how every blockbuster movie trailer feels the same -- it was a specific evisceration of "Ghostbusters: Afterlife," which has been sold to audiences as the "serious" counterpoint to 2016's "Ghostbusters: Answer the Call." And while watching Ghostbusters discourse become a haven for sexist trolls has been nothing short of head-spinning, there's zero question that the movies themselves get caught in the crossfire."Ghost...

Tales From The Box Office: Ghostbusters 2016 Oddly Paved The Way For Ghostbusters: Afterlife

In modern Hollywood, franchises don't stay dead for long. This weekend is proving as an illustration to that very point, as "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" is hitting theaters just five years after "Ghostbusters" (2016) failed quite spectacularly to reignite the long-dormant and beloved horror/comedy series. This new entry (which is more of a proper "Ghostbusters 3" in the way "Creed" was "Rocky VII") was originally supposed to come out last year, which would have been a wait of just four years betwee...

Inside crypto's tungsten cube craze – the obsession with super-heavy metal blocks that cost up to $3,500

Midwest Tungsten Service Three weeks ago, crypto enthusiasts were in a frenzy to buy novelty cubes of tungsten.

Joe Manchin is throwing cold water on paid leave again, threatening to leave the US as the world's only developed economy without mandated time off for workers

Sen. Joe Manchin seen at the US Capitol on June 8, 2021 in Washington, DC.Samuel Corum/Getty Images Democrats are still hashing out their party-line social spending package, and what will be included. Paid leave was omitted from President Joe Biden's initial framework, but got added back in. But Sen. Joe Manchin — who didn't support the proposal before — is doubling down in his opposition. Democrats have already made deep cuts to their party-line social-spending bill — and key centris...

'Childcare deserts' are a secret driver of the labor shortage — and half of Americans live in one

FatCamera/Getty Images Childcare isn't just expensive for families — for some, it isn't even available. The Center for American Progress found around half of Americans live in a "childcare desert." Living in a childcare desert can affect labor force participation — which hurts the overall economy. It's hard to go to work if you can't find anyone to take care of your child.That's the case for more than half of Americans, making the "childcare desert" a hugely overlooked con...

The 14 Best The Real Ghostbusters Episodes

The animated series "The Real Ghostbusters" ran from 1986 to 1991, the "Real" prefix added to distinguish it from Filmation's animated series of the same name, which was based on a live-action TV show that aired back in the mid-'70s. A spin-off from the incredibly popular 1984 movie "Ghostbusters," it continued the saga of Egon Spengler, Ray Stantz, Winston Zeddemore, and Peter Venkman (with the cast's appearances all slightly tweaked to avoid any pesky arguments over likeness rights, of course)...

Ghostbusters: Afterlife Trailer: Terror Dogs, Dan Aykroyd, And A Familiar Song

Thanks to pandemic-related delays, "Ghostbusters: Afterlife" has felt like the movie equivalent of Lucy holding a football for Charlie Brown to kick, only to yank it away at the last second. And hey, I get it: the pandemic rightfully made a lot of Hollywood studios hesitant to release their movies into an environment with more complexity than usual, and a studio like Sony needs to make as much as possible on a potential blockbuster like this in order to stay competitive.But now the movie is fina...

49ers Lose 31-17 To Banged-up Cardinals

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Any encouragement the San Francisco 49ers might have gained from last week’s win at Chicago was wiped out in a hurry against a short-handed Arizona team missing most of its top playmakers. Now, after the 31-17 defeat to the Kyler Murray-less Cardinals on Sunday left the Niners winless in four home games, a season that began with high expectations is spiraling out of control. “It’s pretty embarrassing,” linebacker Fred Warner said. “It’s unacceptable for sure. This is o...

A California aquarium vaccinated 8 sea otters against COVID-19 because they might be susceptible to the virus

A wild otter feeds on fish at Marina bay reservoir in Singapore on October 3, 2016. ROSLAN RAHMAN/AFP via Getty Images The Monterey Bay Aquarium in California has vaccinated eight sea otters against the coronavirus. The zoo chose to vaccinate its otters because of a belief that they're susceptible to the virus. Sea otters find food on the sea floor, so lethargy and poor breathing from COVID-19 would make it hard to survive. An aquarium in California has vaccinated eight sea otters sin...

English idioms: etymological devilry in baking and printing

It is curious how often those who have tried to explain the origin of English idioms have referred to the occupation of printers. Whether their attempts should be taken seriously is of secondary importance, because etymology may not always offer definitive answers. Regardless of their success, the attempts are worthy of note. A few examples will illustrate this point. Baker’s dozen Baker’s dozen means “thirteen.” It is a typical English way of expressing this idea, because elsewhere one usually ...

Why Spielberg Traded Cape Fear To Scorsese For Schindler's List

"Schindler's List" won Steven Spielberg his first Academy Award for Best Director, and it's hard to imagine anyone else helming the film. "Cape Fear" is a little different in that Martin Scorsese's 1991 version is a remake of a 1962 thriller directed by J. Lee Thompson. Scorsese reused the score by Bernard Herrmann and reused actors like Robert Mitchum and Gregory Peck. We don't have to imagine what it would be like for someone other than him to helm "Cape Fear," because someone else already did...
