2 hours ago

Normally when we decide whether a movie is “good” we use arbitrary qualifications like “does it say anything meaningful” or “does it make sense”. But I’m into that. I’m into whether a movie makes me feel things in my gut. I’m into experiences. I’m into having a great time. I’m into guilty pleasures. And these are the best guilty pleasures of the year. 17. “Friend Request”  It had me when one of the main characters yelled “Unfriend that dead bitch!” 16. “Sleepless” I’m a huge fan of this sort of movie where everybody looks and acts »

Paul Haggis Asks Hollywood, ‘Were People Covering for Pedophiles, Too?’

3 hours ago

Oscar-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis has one question for Hollywood: “Were people covering for pedophiles, too?” In light of the sexual harassment and assault allegations raining down on the entertainment industry, Haggis places blame on not only those who may have committed sexual harassment or assault, but also on those who have covered for them. Although Harvey Weinstein is the talk of the town, Haggis also considers grown child stars who have, in the past, made accusations elsewhere. “It is not an innocent place and never has been,” the man behind the camera of films like “Crash” and “Million Dollar Baby” told. »

5 hours ago

There was a startling moment early in the second hour of “Springsteen on Broadway” at the Walter Kerr Theatre in New York City on Saturday night: Bruce Springsteen sat down at the piano, pounded out the opening notes of his barn-burner “Tenth Avenue Freeze-Out” and then looked quizzically at the audience, which had been quietly enraptured for most of his remarkable show. “It’s Ok to get excited,” Springsteen said with a grin, prompting a roar and a hefty amount of “Broooooce”ing. His comment gave the show a jolt, but since when does the audience at a Bruce Springsteen show need permission. »

Sean Spicer Flunks With Harvard Students: ‘He’s Incredibly Inarticulate’

23 hours ago

How much are Harvard students enjoying having Sean Spicer around campus? Not a whole lot, apparently. The former White House press secretary is now a visiting fellow at the Institute of Politics at Harvard’s John F. Kennedy School of Government, where he’s “engaging students in discourse on topical issues of today,” as the school puts it. But based on what students told the Huffington Post, Spicer’s pearls of wisdom have been, uh, severely underwhelming so far. “He’s incredibly inarticulate, so it was really difficult to take any sort of notes,” one student said about Spicer’s lectures. »
