I think there are so many rich actors so utterly surrounded by a Calabasas bubble that they do not understand that every choice of role is a political one these days. Also, I don’t think many of them are all that smart.

I mean, certainly that’s true for the Transformers movies, but say what you will about Michael Bay (and you can say a LOT about Michael Bay) - the Bad Boys movies were a major success featuring two black leads, multiple black supporting roles, and a depiction of a well-adjusted middle class Black family in the mid 90s Read more

Also, I know he hasn’t really gotten all that many big roles yet, but John David Washington is just so enjoyable, and definitely up there in charisma with his father.

Yes, movies would give you that impression. NYC was practically broke by the mid 1970s (see the famous Post headline “Ford to City: Drop Dead.”) However, the peak years of violent crime (both by total numbers and per capita, as NYC population fell from 1975-1995) were actually 1989-1995. This chart is only for murder,

Seriously! It’s definitely biased by watching it at like 9 years old, where everyone over 16 looks 30, but even watching as an adult, she’s dressed like a 30 year old, but every now and then there’s a closeup on her face and I’m like, that’s a KID.

Yes! And Skeet Ulrich and Scott Wolf are also in that gang!

I just rewatched the original movie a few weeks ago, and not only does it hold up, but it is a FANTASTIC representation of NYC in its grimiest years (late 80s, early 90s). Also, having watched it as a kid and thinking grown-ups were all old, I was SHOCKED that the actress who plays April O’Neil was like 20 in that Read more

I get the Aorus comparison, but I’m really looking for an MSI vs Gigabyte Aero 15 head to head, as those are the two laptops I’m deciding between. Any Aero 15 reviews coming in the near future?

I read that the Nolan movie Tenet is going to be the test case for all summer movie releases - if it bombs, they’re all going to be moved or released online. If I was Nolan, I would NOT be happy with that (it’s supposed to be released July 17th...will YOU feel comfortable sitting in a packed movie theater by July?)

Yikes. When I saw the Kirk Hamilton byline, I was like “Kotaku has lost so many staff that they’re in the ‘reposting 2 year old article’ phase.” My best wishes to Fahey, McCleod, and Totilo.

As much of a rip-off of Batman’s speech in Year One it was, Catwoman’s class inequality speech during that dance is the only coherent political observation in a movie that seemed to be a political movie with zero understandable positions.

It’s excellent, and you can see the bones of nearly every Wright production in it.

I would definitely not replay Hollow Knight, as wonderful of an experience as it was...however, I have definitely spent late nights watching speedruns of it, as it is almost zen to see people just flow right through bosses that took me an hour to beat. I recently replayed Horizon Zero Dawn in its entirety - the story Read more

What has Jeeja been up to recently? I was just thinking about Chocolate, one of my fave martial arts movies of....all time?

I mean, Halle Berry killed it in John Wick, but I also have a feeling that Keanu gets a lot of pull to hire whatever costars he wants, and tends to show a lot more care to hire age appropriate actors. His last major movies, aside from the cameo in Always Be My Maybe, his female counterparts were Berry and Winona Read more

You should give Horizon Zero Dawn a try.
