    Spike Lee is one of the greatest filmmakers of all time, and any time he actually marshals the resources to make an actual feature film rather than a one-man show, filmed stage production, or music video, it’s extra good news.

    Not Gonna Happen Coin: For Those Difficult Easy Decisions

    You know how sometimes you know the right answer to a question, but you have to ask somebody else in order to solidify it in your mind?

    ‘Searching’: John Cho Just Wants His Daughter Back (Video)

    Hey, remember that movie Open Windows from a few years ago? Elijah Wood gets entangled in some sort of dangerous intrigue, and the whole movie is shot from a view of his computer screen?

    ‘Black Panther’ Xbox One X from Marvel and Microsoft

    I only saw Black Panther once, but I don’t remember seeing any Best Buys in Wakanda. Yet apparently they have some electronics stores there, judging by the Black Panther Xbox One X, a highly limited edition console from Marvel and Microsoft. How limited? There are purportedly only five Black Panther Xbox One X consoles in existence, and they’re subject to a […]

    Uberair: Flight Sharing in the Near Future (Video)

    We all live surrounded by an invisible circle between 50 to a hundred miles across, known as a “dead zone.” It’s that area that’s too close to get to by plane, but too far to comfortably get by other modes of transit.
