Kendrick Lamar, James Bond, and Gastrointestinal Passcode Pills: Links You Need to See

The more that Gwyneth Paltrow keeps insisting that she does not live on Cloud 9 or Mount Olympus, the less the world believes her. Yesterday, she explained on CNN Money, “I’m incredibly close to the common woman in that I’m a woman and I’m a mother and we all are in a physical body with beating hearts with compassion and love…,” yet one day, Gwen or her progeny will own one of these flying cars, and I’ll still be trying to get health insurance. … Read More

Can the Dark, Intriguing Superhero Drama ‘Powers’ Survive on PlayStation Plus?

As if there weren’t enough streaming sites — in addition to countless television channels — Sony PlayStation is now introducing original programming for members of its PlayStation Plus subscription service. Its first (and so far only announced) program is Powers, an adaptation of the Eisner Award-winning comic book series by writer Brian Michael Bendis and artist Michael Avon Oeming. The ten-episode series will be available exclusively on PlayStation Plus (though the pilot is available for free on YouTube), a platform that, as of January 2, 2015, boasted nearly 11 million users. With a subscriber base roughly one-fifth the size of Netflix’s, it’s hard not to worry that Powers won’t find a substantial audience — which would be unfortunate, because it’s certainly a series that deserves one. … Read More

‘A Kim Jong-Il Production’ Is an Incredible True Story About North Korea and Film

In December 2014, the imminent release of Seth Rogen and James Franco’s idiots-take-North Korea comedy The Interview set off both the Sony Pictures hacking scandal and the terrorist threat that any theaters showing the film would be attacked: “The world will be full of fear,” the hackers wrote. It was still a strange, surreal, largely online controversy that was hard for the average American citizen to see and feel the effects of in their day-to-day life. For me, the clearest example of a world with and without The Interview was when I was walking past a days-in-the-making painted mural advertising the movie in Williamsburg; the day after the film was officially pulled from theaters, that ad was, once again, a white wall. … Read More

See ‘The Interview,’ Or Don’t — Neither Option Makes You a Hero

Some people like to spend their holidays surrounded by presents, family, and an inadvisable amount of sugar cookies. And some people — Texans, obviously — like to spend their holidays not only seeing The Interview, the bro comedy that inadvertently made Amy Pascal America’s favorite poet, but singing “Proud to Be an American” at the screening. This, like many reactions to The Interview and its release, is dumb.  … Read More
