According to a recent poll, moviegoers are only willing to pay $6 to $8 for an on-demand movie. However, the MCU may be able to command more money at this stage of the game. Making some money is definitely better than making no money at all, and the studio realizes this, though releasing movies on-demand is still a pretty new experiment. Universal Pictures is looking to release Trolls World Tour this way and all of the other studios will be watching to see how it goes. If all goes well, movies like Black Widow and Mulan will more than likely skip the theater experience. This news was first reported by Grace Randolph's Twitter account. … [Read more...] about Are Black Widow and Disney’s Mulan Going Straight to Streaming?

You probably looked at a lot of actresses to play Nola. What was it about DeWanda Wise that stood out?Sensitivity. Hunger. Vivaciousness. Humor. Strength. Fearlessness. All those adjectives – she has them in abundance. And we kid about it, her and I, but you know there’s a lot of sex [in the show]. I was out front with all the actors coming to read for Nola, Mars, Greer [Childs] and Jamie [Overstreet] that there’s sexual content in this and you have to be naked. I was not going to cast someone that did not want to do that. Particularly today, I’d be crucified if Nola’s butt-naked and she’s the only one – I’d be justifiably crucified. So I told the men, I said, “Yo, we got to see your ass, too.” [Laughs] Everybody understood, and people were not reluctant. … [Read more...] about Spike Lee: Why I Turned ‘She’s Gotta Have It’ Into a TV Series
The notion for Catch-22 came to him in the middle of the night: “It kind of burst into my mind. I was actually pacing the floor at four in the morning.

He does not write fast. Something. Happened came out thirteen years after Catch-22 and was so unlike his first book that it perplexed critics and fans alike: despair had replaced black humor. A mere four years later, along came Good as Gold, a parody of presidential politics laced with vicious attacks on Kissinger. Even though Heller decided not to go to Washington to do research and depended instead on newspaper clippings for his political expertise, the New York Times Book Review said Gold’s portrayal of Washington was “perhaps more valuable to our understanding of our government than a … [Read more...] about Interview: Checking In With Author Joseph Heller
The 850F series from Sony offers an Ultra HD Smart LED TV with 4K capabilities. Though it’s not the top of the line for Sony (that would be the 900F), users felt that this TV had a more realistic picture than the 900F. Thanks to Sony’s X1 processor and Dynamic Contrast Enhancer, this TV will update color and picture details on a frame by frame basis. Another perk of the 850F series is it packs a refresh rate of 120 Hz. For all intents and purposes, this is about the highest refresh rate the casual viewer would need, due to the fact that most recording equipment out today can’t support anything higher. … [Read more...] about The Best 65-Inch TVs to Get Right Now
