The Texan #14 - Matt Baker art & cover

Matt Baker The Texan v1 #14, 1951 - On this Matt Baker cover, an indian attack on a covered wagon is interrupted by a band of rescuers appearing just over the ridge. While not artfully composed, Baker makes up for it inside with three engagingly drawn stories. In "Death's Roundup", the artist uses larger panels than usual, giving it more weight and importance. From the terrific opening splash [Author: Ted F]

Netflix’s newest original film is a gothic drama directed by Antonio Campos (The Sinner, Christine) that boasts a ridiculously good cast including Tom Holland, Chris Evans, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, and Bill Skarsgard.

Huawei's Poland Crisis Threatens to Intensify Spying Concerns

Huawei Technologies Co. cut loose a sales director arrested in Poland on suspicion of espionage, moving swiftly to distance itself from a case that may crystallize fears the telecoms giant helps Beijing spy on Western governments. Chinese’s largest technology company fired Wang Weijing, who was responsible for sales to public sector clients, saying the incident has brought Huawei “into disrepute,” without elaborating.

Wild Women, Forty Pricks, and Western Noir

None Film critic Manny Farber, in typical inimitable style, summarized much of Samuel Fuller's film oeuvre through simultaneous praise and critique in the following observation: "What's good about his films is lovable; the daring, uninhibited use of semidocumentary techniques that save the movie from Fuller's mind, an unthinking morass at best" (Negative Space: Manny Farber on the Movies (New York: De Capo Press, 1998, 132). Put slightly more generously, Fuller's film style often trumps the plo...

Britain left in dark over US withdrawal from Afghanistan

Britain was not told of American plans to withdraw up to half its troops from Afghanistan, with officials only hearing of the abrupt shift by its closest military ally from news reports. The decision caused surprise and unease among Western diplomats in Kabul, with one warning it was an early Christmas present to the Taliban. Only hours before reports of the plan, the head of the British armed forces had said he believed Donald Trump would not announce a major troop withdrawal, as he had from Sy...

‘Deadwood’ Movie Photos Prove This is Finally, Really Happening

When it comes to the Deadwood movie, I’ve always maintained a “I’ll believe it when I see it” mentality. The film follow-up to David Milch‘s Shakespearian Western has been talked about for so long, that I started to think it would never happen – even when everyone involved said that it definitely was. Now I think I can finally start to accept reality, because the first Deadwood movie photos have surfaced, proving that yes, it’s really happening. EW has our first look at official Deadwood mov...

That Hole In The New Samsung Phone Is Actually A Camera

As smartphone bezels continue to shrink, we’re starting to see some…interesting takes on how to accommodate the front-facing camera. Most phones go with the notch, but Samsung is taking things further by punching a hole in the display. The Samsung A8s (yes, the “S” is lower-case in the product name) is otherwise a typical mid-range phone: it uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage—expandable with a microSD card.

‘The Ballad of Buster Scruggs’ Star Tim Blake Nelson on Working With the Coen Brothers and Preparing for HBO’s ‘Watchmen’

Tim Blake Nelson plays one of the deadliest and happiest men in the West in The Ballad of Buster Scruggs. Buster Scruggs isn’t a gunslinger who growls and grimaces, but instead sings and dances and enjoys every moment without thinking it’ll be his last. Everything is just sunny to the titular character of Joel and Ethan Coen‘s six-part anthology film, which is a western with all of the joy and misery we love from those filmmakers. Happiness is hard to come by in The Ballad of Buster Scruggs, bu...

Paramount Ranch, Which Burned in California Fire, Aims to Be Completely Rebuilt in Two Years

A large portion of Paramount Ranch, the filming location for hundreds of films and television shows over the years (including HBO’s Westworld), burned to the ground in one of the devastating fires that have swept through California this month. And while the future is unfortunately still depressingly dire for many residents of the state, at least there’s a sliver of good news: officials have announced a plan to rebuild Paramount Ranch’s old western town in the next two years.

‘Deadwood’ Movie Begins Production With Original Cast Returning

Tell your god to ready for blood, because it’s finally happening. HBO has announced the Deadwood movie has officially begun production, and the original cast is returning. There have been talks of a Deadwood movie ever since the original show went off the air in 2006. As the years ticked on, it seemed less and less likely that we’d ever return to the foul-mouth world of David Milch‘s anti-Western. But now, it’s really happening. I never thought this day would come, and I’m thrilled to be wro...
