A massive hacking network that Microsoft and the US military tried to stop last month is already back — and it could be a bad sign for Election Day

‘Death Note’ Early Buzz: A Thoughtless and Lazy Adaptation of the Acclaimed Manga

This weekend brings another Netflix original movie to the streaming service, and it might be their most controversial yet. Death Note is an American adaptation of the famous manga of the same name, and while there has been some backlash about the whitewashing of the cast, it sounds like the most offensive thing about the movie is the fact that it doesn’t do anything fresh with the material to justify it. There’s nothing explicitly American about this new take on Death Note from director Adam Wi...
