Interview: Errol Morris

12 April 2014 10:06 AM, PDT | Pure Movies | See recent Pure Movies news »

Something You Should Know Before Seeing The Unknown Known

In this era—thank you Fox News, thank you Rush Limbaugh—where vitriol supplants discussion, where bombast and partisan opinion quashes reason, Errol Morris’s new film has ignited some low-wattage controversy.  The Unknown Known is a bloodless portrait of former U.S. Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld, an exposé only in a laissez-faire sense; unlike The Fog of War, Morris’ other documentary on a former Secretary of Defence, Robert McNamara, which was a Greek tragedy of hubris and self-excoriation, with a sort of sad happy ending where McNamara is haunted with regret.  In The Unknown Known there is no Bill O’Reilly pugnacity, shouting at his subject, calling him a dirty traitor and shutting off his mic, or no Michael Moore (the Left’s equivalent of Bill O’Reilly, thank God for it) making his subject into a buffoon.  Why »

Entertainment Geekly: The Weird and Wonderful Bottle Season of 'The Walking Dead'

20 March 2014 2:19 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

As a capitalist idea, The Walking Dead is transformative: The cable TV show that cut the last fragile residual cords of broadcast television dominance, the meteor that ended the age of dinosaurs. Analogically, it is to the economics of television what The Sopranos was to the aesthetics of television: A demarcation between What Was and What Will Be. As pure creative destruction, the show is fascinating. But as a work of creativity, the show has been frustrating. »

Entertainment Geekly: Does modern TV fandom actually make it harder to understand TV shows?

14 March 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses! This week there are two columns inspired by True Detective, partially because True Detective was a thought-provoking TV show which deserves a significant amount of thoughtful analysis, but mainly because I missed a column last week. Yesterday: A consideration of where the show’s ending fits into the pantheon. Today: A meditation on the show’s meaning, or lack thereof. Spoilers follow.

At the end of True Detective’s second episode, philosophizing detective »

The Kids Are Alright in 40-Plus Images from Divergent

10 March 2014 9:08 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Apparently there is a lot of fightin’ going on in Neil Burger’s sci-fi “Hunger Games”-wannabe “Divergent,” which is a bit of a surprise. But judging from the batch of 40-plus new images for the movie, apparently it’s all fightin’ and shootin’ and climbin’ and punchin’ all the time. That should make for a decent movie for the boys who will no doubt be dragged to this thing by their significant others who have read the Veronica Roth books from which it’s based. The sequel, we’re told, is already scheduled to shoot. But then again, when isn’t a sequel already “scheduled” to shoot or being “developed”? That’s like saying Hollywood loves money. Standard operating procedure these days. Divergent is a thrilling action-adventure film set in a world where people are divided into distinct factions based on human virtues. Tris Prior (Shailene Woodley) is warned »

Entertainment Geekly: Why are we so obsessed with the 1980s?

23 January 2014 11:15 AM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

Entertainment Geekly is a weekly column that examines pop culture through a geek lens and simultaneously examines contemporary geek culture through a pop lens. So many lenses!

Measuring time in specific decades is a fallacy, but it’s a fallacy that everyone believes in. There’s no legitimate reason that we should set aside the passage of time between January 1, 1980 and December 31, 1989 as a specific and clearly defined unit of time. 1979 wasn’t too different from 1980; most of the movies released in 1990 were probably shot in 1989. People used to refer to the ’80s as “the MTV Decade” before every decade »
