Spike in fraud, waste, abuse of LA resources revealed

The Los Angeles city controller’s Fraud, Waste and Abuse Unit received 543 complaints in 2019, an increase of 58% over the previous year and the highest amount over a 10-year period, it was announced Wednesday, Feb. 19. Controller Ron Galperin said the spike is attributable to enhanced, biannual fraud awareness training for city employees, which 33,670 employees completed last year. Of all complaints lodged in 2019, 94% came through the controller’s web intake form and 24-hour telephone hotline,...

Instead of apologizing to the gays, Wendy Williams needs to fix herself

What a girl wants depends on the girl, and what Wendy Williams really really wants is as obvious as the Trump administration’s anti-LGBTQ agenda: She wants traditional gender roles. She wants to wear men’s shirts, short skirts, to color her hair, do what she dares. She wants a man who makes her feel like a woman. But then, who needs men at all on Galentine’s Day? During the February 13 episode of her eponymous daytime talk show, Wendy explained the Parks and Recreations twist on Valentine’s Day...

Film Review - Parasite (by Bong Joon Ho)

So, last night, I saw Parasite. You know, the movie that the entire world has been going ga ga about? from Cannes to LA to backroads of Versova to online dating forums and beyond! The film opens on a family of four, the Kims, living in abject poverty (in a basement at the end of a street where drunkards routinely come and puke and piss) and have no hopes or plans for the future. Their phones have been disconnected because they've not paid the bills. And because they don't have phones, they can'...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Review: An Exhausting Video Game Adaptation With an Identity Crisis

Who is Sonic the Hedgehog for? What is the target audience for a film that wants to take its cues from Deadpool but also family films about the Easter Bunny? Ostensibly, children should want very badly to see this movie adaptation of the long-running Sega video game about an extremely fast blue animal. But Sonic the Hedgehog can’t figure out if its audience is the parents of those children — those of us who grew up with the first iteration of Sonic — or kids themselves. The result is...

‘Sonic the Hedgehog’ Featurette: Zany Jim Carrey from the ’90s Is Back as Dr. Robotnik

Jim Carrey had a meteoric rise to fame in the 1990s thanks to a string of comedy hits like Ace Ventura: Pet Detective, The Mask, and Dumb & Dumber, not to mention a campy villainous turn as The Riddler in Batman Forever, all in the span of a year and a half. It’s been a long time since we’ve seen Jim Carrey get that silly, but as a new Sonic the Hedgehog featurette shows us, that changes this weekend. Sonic the Hedgehog, based on the Sega video game of the same name, brings in Jim Carrey to pla...

Can LA provide free feminine-hygiene products? An answer awaits

The Los Angeles City Council on Wednesday, Feb. 5 requested that its staff prepare on a report on what it would cost to provide free feminine hygiene products at city-owned facilities. “It’s time to end the stigma around periods and menstrual health that has kept policymakers dragging their feet,” District 3 Councilmember Bob Blumenfield said. “Providing feminine hygiene products at no cost in city-owned facilities should be just as normal as providing toilet paper or soap.” Blumenfield said he ...

Twelve Films That Highlight the Best in Humanity

This year’s Oscar nominees for Best Picture tend to emphasize the worst in humanity. For example, Joker is about the descent into homicidal madness. Jojo Rabbit is about one of the worst events in human history, the Nazi Holocaust. 1917 is about another catastrophe, World War One. In each of those films, however, we can still find elements of humanity’s best qualities: heroism, growth, fortitude, and more. Those qualities are the focus of our own list of this year’s Greater Goodies, our awar...

The Radical Generosity of ‘The Good Place’ Made It One of the Greatest Modern TV Shows

Major spoilers for The Good Place follow . Imagine pitching a half-hour sitcom like so: our main character wakes up dead. She’s in heaven. But here’s the thing: she’s a real piece of crap.  Of course, there’s so much more to Michael Schur ’s The Good Place , the NBC comedy that ended its four-season run last night. It’s a universe- and century-spanning epic of cosmic proportions, told in fifty brightly colored, bizarrely conceived, half-hour increments. It’s the story of a love that s...

The Secret of the “Perfect Montage” at the Heart of Parasite, the Korean Film Now Sweeping World Cinema

For nearly as long as mankind has tried to commit the perfect crime, mankind has tried to tell stories of the perfect crime. Both endeavors demand intensive planning, the story of the crime perhaps even more rigorously so than the crime itself. No less obsessive a teller and reteller of "perfect crime" stories than Alfred Hitchcock knew that well, and so he remains an icon of such storytelling in cinema. Hence the visual reference, albeit a vanishingly brief one, to the master of suspens...
