‘The Tomorrow War’ Wants to Be ‘Independence Day,’ But You, Sir, Are No ‘Independence Day’

I love dumb movies and I can’t get enough of dumb movie moments. You know the ones! They tend to aim big and throw “realism” to the wind, all in favor of delivering heightened emotions amid satisfying thrills. What’s more, I don’t think there should be any shame or stigma attached to that statement. There’s plenty of room in a well-rounded palette for all sorts of films, after all — from highbrow to lowbrow and everything in between. Something as iconic as Jurassic Park, for example, may not be...

‘A Glitch in the Matrix’ Review: ‘Room 237’ Director Explores Simulation Theory [Sundance 2021]

Rodney Ascher is still best known as the filmmaker behind the enthralling 2012 documentary Room 237, a deep dive into several unconventional readings of Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining that ended up being a movie about obsession. He’s directed a few other projects since then, but now he’s back to explore that same topic from a different perspective with A Glitch in the Matrix, a film which delves into the long-held theory that we’re all living in a simulation.  From the very first frame, Ascher...

Does fact-checking really work? Timing matters.

MIT researchers conducted a study with 2,683 volunteers on the efficacy of fact-checking. Showing "true" or "false" tags after the headline proved more effective than showing it before or during.The researchers believe this counterintuitive discovery could lead to better fact-checking protocols in the future. Not only do most people get their news from social media, a majority of users never make it past the headline. The infinite scroll means that once a headline is consumed and a judgment is...
