Netflix’s Chilling Adventure of Sabrina has cast former Disney star Ross Lynch as Sabrina’s love interest Harvey Kinkle. The upcoming series is more of an adaptation of the comics by the same name written by Riverdale showrunner Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa with art by Robert Hack than a remake of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, the show that aired on ABC in the late 1990s. And like Riverdale, which has taken the classic Archie comics to the next level, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina is sure to be darker than the original.The one hour drama will feature Kiernan Shipka as Sabrina Spellman, a young half witch torn between two worlds. While Riverdale has the mystery and drama of small town life, Sabrina will deal with supernatural elements head on. The show will focus on witchcraft, the occult and dark forces, and has been described as sharing a tone with classic horror films like The … [Read more...] about Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Casts Sabrina’s Boyfriend

2 months ago The world of film production is a funny place as of late. With review aggregators killing movies before they even hit theaters, as well as the power of the collective Twittersphere, and any missteps are broadcast in bright lights. This was surely the case with David Ayer's Suicide Squad.The villain-centric team up film was highly anticipated before its release, but the theatrical cut didn't provide the raucous time we'd bee promised in the trailers. Ayer's latest project is the Netflix original movie Bright, and he recently opened up about his trepidation about the project, following Suicide Squad's poor critical performance. And whats more, how that process actually helped him produce his latest sci-fi action flick. Per his comments to ET, David Ayer has found the upside to his experience with Suicide Squad. And furthermore, it seems that he's been able to channel the reaction from the Task Force X movie into future projects, allowing him to continue to grow and … [Read more...] about How Suicide Squad Criticism Affected David Ayer Before Directing Bright

Safe spaces. The bane of conservatives everywhere.I first started hearing about this anxiety back in the days when I watched Bill Maher’s show, and he mentioned an article in The Atlantic about how students on campuses are being coddled by not wanting to hear or see things that might “trigger” them. The article argued that professors feel frightened in this environment, trying to educate students when they could be accused of being sexist or racist based on what works they teach. That the problem is that students want campus life to be a “safe space.”Now, as someone who went to college in upstate New York, where I was the token black student in most of my classes throughout my four years, I can speak to how important it was for my own mental health to create spaces for myself where I wasn’t always “the black student.” Even when educators have the best intentions, it is hard to always be asked to have opinions on “black … [Read more...] about Can Conservatives Stop Crying About Safe Spaces?
