Max Landis

Hollywood’s Insistence on Making Max Landis “A Thing” Is a Symptom of Its Endemic Sexism

If we're to believe exclusively what we're told, Max Landis is a big deal. And we're repeatedly told he's a big deal for reasons having nothing to do with his famous father and everything to do with the fact that...he gets paid a lot of money for scripts that end up not being successful?

Things We Saw Today: Stray Cat Has Opinions On Current Events, Makes Surprise Appearance on Turkish TV News Show

This cat on a Turkish TV News show has some strong opinions about current events. Actually, it's a stray that got in through an open door, but it decided that it needed to make its presence known during this TV News broadcast. The best part is that the anchor/host is so super-chill about it, but you can totally tell he's working so hard not to pet his new, furry co-anchor.

Chronicle is Getting a Sequel

Back when the trailer for Chronicle released, we knew the movie would be some form of entertaining -- either because things would blow up for two hours, or because the movie would actually be a fresh take on superpowers. Even though the movie followed some overused tropes, such as having a big fight between a hero and villain, and being shot in the handy-can style of The Blair Witch Project and Cloverfield, the movie still turned out to be surprisingly good. It actually did deliver a somewhat fresh take on superpower movies. Hollywood thought it was good too, good enough for it to be getting a sequel, in fact.
