Spielbergs The Post: Good Movie, Bad History

The Post, which opens tonight, is a good movie but bad history. It exaggerates the role of The Washington Post in the success of the publication of the Pentagon Papers and the subsequent Supreme Court case. It downplays the role of the true catalyst in the real life drama: The New York Times. Kay Graham and Ben Bradlee, who were good friends of mine, must be rolling over in their…

Home Alone Is So Much Better if Kevin McCallister is Dead

Home Alone is not a great movie. Nevertheless, in 1991, it was one of three VHS tapes that my grandparents owned that I had any interest in watching, and as a result I have seen Home Alone so many times that I could probably recite the movie by now. I could even recite the gratuitous scene in which Kevin, as played by Macaulay Culkin, fear-shoplifts a toothbrush that may or…

UBTECHs robotic First Order Stormtrooper patrols AR battlefields

UBTECH’s Stormtrooper missed Force Friday and The Last Jedi’s release — no surprise, really. The robotic toy moves pretty slowly, all things told. Perhaps it was a matter of getting things just right, or maybe it was the pains of dealing with such a high-profile license for the first time. Whatever the case, the Chinese robotics startup has just taken the wraps off one last piece of Star Wars tech…

Netflixs Bright Is a $90 Million Steaming Pile of Orc Sh*t

First of all, the majority of Netflixs new $90 million original movie takes place at night and in fairly dingy rooms, and that, in combination with how the whole production is lit, means that most of the action is obscured and visually unintelligible. Secondly, theres nothing about this movie thats an inherently good ideaor rather, very generously speaking, maybe the story could have…

Don’t Panic, But A 5km Wide Astroid Is Hurtling Towards Earth – Viral Thread

Asteroids have always been a threat to Earth. In fact, our planet has been hit before. There are still massive craters caused by asteroid strikes in many countries including the United States, Canada, South Africa, and Russia.
