the funny thing is he also basically made this face in 2
probably spent the exact same amount of time and energy doing the last Wes Anderson movie too but he still has a couple nice moments in it

"Bill Murray doesn't want to be here and you can clearly tell" is an integral part of the entire Ghostbusters franchise

kid picked some Wonder Woman Golden Book for bedtime and now I'm mad again that the Martian Manhunter isn't one of the canonical Justice League founding members anymore. They did J'onn dirty.
Cyborg is fine but if he had to replace someone Arthur Curry is right there
as a child I might've been America's Only Martian Manhunter Fan because I had this one-shot (probably from Barnes and Noble, not a comic shop) and studied it religiously and thought his (post-Crisis) origin was very deep and cool (great Brian Bolland cover)

an intellectual whose work I have read admiringly and who I am very confident is much smarter than I am has, once again, run aground on the obvious "reject wokeness" response of "who, precisely, is supposed to do what, precisely, to whom, and by what mechanism will that work"
if Biden said "I reject Ibram X Kendi" it would be a) meaningless/unbelieved by people to whom he's already a villain, b) demoralizing/alienating to Kendi admirers, c) utterly meaningless to most people. general anti-CRT speech would be basically the same result. who does what?
this is not a blind item I'm literally just trying not to sic my audience on someone I think is operating in good faith but I'm legitimately laughing at some of the ideas some of you have about people I'd consider an intellectual worthy of respect and consideration

everyone's making fun of this guy's other tweet but this one is like "all this movie has to offer is sumptuous visuals and a brilliant score" Image
sound is a massively underrated element of filmmaking and what I've come to realize now that I don't go to theaters that often is that it's become a hugely more important part of the theater experience for me than visual effects
this observation inspired not by Dune (which I haven't seen yet in theaters) but by seeing Todd Haynes's Velvet Underground at Film Forum. meticulous sound mixing and editing that most won't hear. very good interview highlighting it:…

she's pretty clearly laying the groundwork to become an independent, probably after the midterms
like the material reasons why she's acting like this are obvious but she's assiduously tending to her donor base and breaking ties with the local Dem party. you don't really need to do anything to "cash in" after one term, you need a donor base to run an independent campaign
to be clear, Jamelle is right (and I'd go father and call it "a bad strategy") but I think she's plainly very self-regarding and thinks she has brilliant and unique insights into politics

In U.S. cities there effectively isn't traffic enforcement besides speed cameras and pretextual stops. There's parking enforcement for some but you wouldn't call 911 on someone running a red and they'd scoff if you did. Cops don't chase people making illegal turns.
the reasons for this are pretty obvious: it's easier to stop scofflaws on foot and no one wants high-speed chases for any act of bad driving. but DOTs and mayors haven't really translated this into the obvious lesson that "enforcement" can't produce "Vision Zero."
you need to design streets differently and get people out of cars. (Suburbanites don't get this because out there for revenue reasons cops park out and wait for cars violating petty laws to stop.)
