More Disney Theatrical Movies Could Go Direct to Disney+, But Don’t Expect Big Tentpole Films, Says Bob Iger

With movie theaters shut down for the time being, and so many movie release dates delayed, moviegoers are wondering if more and more titles will go directly to digital or streaming. Disney made this decision recently with one of their upcoming movies, Artemis Fowl, which is headed right to Disney+. Could that mean additional Disney theatrical titles will go straight there as well? According to Bob Iger, yes – but don’t expect that from huge tentpole movies like Black Widow or Mulan. No one c...

Japanese Artist Has Drawn Every Meal He’s Eaten for 32 Years: Behold the Delicious Illustrations of Itsuo Kobayashi

Since the 1980s, Itsuo Kobayashi has drawn a picture of every single meal he eats. However notable we find this practice now, it would surely have struck us as downright eccentric back then. Kobayashi began drawing his food before the arrival of inexpensive digital cameras and cellphones, and well before the smartphone combined the two into the single package we now keep close at hand. We all know people who take camera-phone pictures of their meals, some of them with the regularity and solemni...

How Did Disney Swallow Up Everything?

Disney is so big it’s even creating metaphors about itself in its many, many, many, many properties. “Disney’s gravitational pull is warping the very space-time continuum of the media landscape. You will have to work harder than ever to escape the Magic Kingdom’s reach. If it doesn’t get you with the Avengers, it will get you with The Simpsons, or National Geographic, or Wes Anderson. If it doesn’t get you with Elsa sticking plasters, it will get you with Baby Yoda memes.” – The Guardian (UK) ...

My Trip to Vietnam, Singapore, and Qatar

For three weeks in late January and early February, I travelled to Asia, spending two weeks in Saigon, a few days in Singapore, and about 48 hours in Doha, Qatar.

How the New Emma Movie Updates the Relationship At Its Core

Jane Austen‘s beloved 1815 classic Emma is saddled with some serious 19th-century baggage: namely, that the romance at its heart pairs the fresh-faced, 21-year-old titular protagonist with a gentleman 16 years her senior, with all the power imbalances attendant to both their age gap and the gender norms of the era. For the new movie adaptation (stylized as Emma.), the solution to this is fairly simple: cast the lovable Johnny Flynn as the male lead, mostly ignore their ages altogether and a...

Wes Anderson’s Shorts Films & Commercials: A Playlist of 8 Short Andersonian Works

You may have noticed certain brands, over the past decade or so, going for a "Wes Anderson aesthetic" in their advertisements. But as all the younger filmmakers Anderson inspires inevitably find out, replicating the director's signature mise-en-scène — the distinctive color palettes, the rigorous geometry, the carefully curated objects — is no easy task. To achieve the cinematically Andersonian, it seems you really need Anderson himself. Fortunately for certain marketing departments, the...

That a visibly diverse group of children take the lead in Kye's story is no accident. "The video reads like a short film; it has a Wes Anderson aesthetic without Wes Anderson casting," he says. Kye notes that the cast members "make up an interesting representation of America, each with their own unique skillset and differences that allow them to contribute individually to a common goal".

‘Knives Out’ Honest Trailer: Rian Johnson Combines A-Listers, A-Holes and A-gatha Christie

Since Star Wars: The Last Jedi got a bunch of manbabies riled up about minority characters, female empowerment, and whiny entitled douchebros, writer/director Rian Johnson decided to take it one step further with Knives Out. The whodunit in the vein of Agatha Christie isn’t quite as much of a mystery as it would seem, mostly since we find out who the killer is roughly halfway through the movie. But of course, the plot at the center of Knives Out is a donut hole within a donut hole, so there’s s...
