‘Stranger Things’ to ‘Anne With an E’: The Secret Weapon Behind Netflix’s Latest Stunning Opening Sequence
Imaginary Forces creative director Alan Williams, whose company earned lauds for its minimalist title design for “Stranger Things,” reached out to Netflix again when he learned that the streaming service was adapting the novel into a series, “Anne with an E.” Like many, Williams grew up captivated by Anne Shirley, the heroine from author Lucy Maud Montgomery’s book “Anne of Green Gables. The lonely orphan had an indomitable spirit, wild imagination, and affinity for the natural world that she brought with her to Green Gables, where she finally found a home.

Performer of the Week: Ewan McGregor
The Performer | Ewan McGregor
The Show | Fargo
The Episode | “The Lord of No Mercy” (May 24, 2017)
The Performance | Oh, brother. All season long on Fargo, McGregor has been pulling double duty as feuding Minnesota brothers Ray and Emmit Stussy. But in this week’s riveting potboiler of an episode, that duet tragically became a solo act.
Like Tatiana Maslany on Orphan Black, McGregor has so skillfully differentiated his two characters here — Emmit is the polite, genial big-business tycoon; Ray is the scruffy, embittered black sheep — that it’s easy to forget they’re played by the same actor. This week, McGregor »

‘The Simpsons’: Richard Nixon Gives Donald Trump Advice in ‘125 Days’ — Watch
Donald Trump’s approval ratings suggest that most in the country aren’t pleased with him right now, but at least one person is sticking by the current occupant of the White House: Richard Nixon. That’s according to a new short from “The Simpsons” called “125 Days,” which finds Nixon’s ghost barging in on a meeting between Trump and James Comey.
After a brief tour of the White House — Mike Pence erases “Vice” from his nameplate; Steve Bannon, Jared Kushner and Kellyanne Conway have all hanged themselves; and Jeff Sessions scurries away like a rat — we see Trump in his chambers as he makes a halfhearted attempt to reconcile with the fired FBI Director.
Enter Nixon, who’s practically giddy with the way Trump’s administration is going so far: “I came to thank you, »

25 Fun Facts About Ace Ventura: Pet Detective
To this day one could conceivably argue that Ace Ventura: Pet Detective was Jim Carrey’s finest comedic work in a movie. Dumb and Dumber will always get the nod but it was Ace Ventura that was responsible for Jim Carrey becoming one of the biggest and most well paid names in comedic movie roles for the decade that followed this film. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen this movie at least 30 times and every single time I see it I laugh at not only the same parts again and again but I find myself continuing to find newer nuances in

‘Morning Joe’ Host Mika Brzezinski Pays Tribute to Late Father
Mika Brzezinski hailed the man known as Chief to his family as “the most inspiring, loving and devoted father any girl could ever have.” She shared family pictures of her father and made mention of his love of sailing his boat to Baker Island in Maine.
“Chief loved making his family laugh. He loved Maine more than anything — where we hiked as a family, swam, played tennis and rode in his broken-down boat to the beautiful islands just off Northeast Harbor,” Brzezinski wrote on Instagram.
Zbigniew Brzezinski was a top advisor to President Jimmy Carter during the tumultuous late 1970s, when the administration was tested by the Iranian hostage crisis, the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan and other global crises.

The Original Alien Trailer Recut as a Comedy
Now that Alien: Covenant is out we can stop being serious about this film. I never said it was bad but I think all of us, and I mean close to 100% agree this this film was Not a return to the 1979 classic like it was being hyped as. I think it’s also safe to say we won’t be seeing nearly as many Alien films as Ridley Scott was once advertising. Is it a successful franchise? I would say that from a profit perspective, sure. However, when you really get down to it, how many of these films were

‘The Void’ Is the Kind of Lovecraftian Horror Movie We Need Right Now
Horror movies are a strange beast to try to tackle. Their audience will never be as big as the latest blockbuster, their attendance tends to die off quickly and because of how cheap they are to churn out, a disproportionate number of them are damn near unwatchable. You have to wade through a lot of dreck to make the genre worth your while, but if you do, they are some of the most rewarding and original movies being made today. So many great horror movies fail to get noticed by even the niche audiences they aim to please. Although now
