Say what you want about Netflix, but the streaming service is constantly doing the most to keep us entertained. That’s certainly true with the newest feature it’s testing out: shuffle play. That’s right, Netflix will let you play roulette with your movie choices. It’s a perfect feature for the indecisive among us. But is it here to stay?
If you really think about it, Echo Dots have the Force. The mysterious little circular objects omit loud noises, can answer just about any question you ask it, and seem practiced in all walks of life. They’re a little bit like the all-knowing Jedi Master Yoda. Or maybe, a little bit like The Child from The Mandalorian.
Is a Lord of the Rings prequel a good idea? That’s a question I’ve been asking myself since Amazon announced a new TV show based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s seminal series in early 2017.
Houses are exoskeletons. We sigh, and they sigh with us. We cry, we scream, we shake, and our actions imprint in the rooms within, fossilized into wallpaper patterns and grooves in the ceiling. Houses know us intimately. They have souls and they have secrets. Our secrets.
I talked to the creator of Unsolved Mysteries, Terry Dunn Meurer, about the latest season's most compelling case.
"The Haunting of Hill House is a special treat for horror fans, one of the greatest – and most satisfying – uses of the genre is this new, bingeable medium. And it’s arrived at the perfect time, just before Halloween, so you can enjoy it as its meant to be enjoyed: under the covers, with the cool air creeping outdoors, and things going bump in the night."
Susie Bannion’s body is an instrument, an undulating chord of spine manipulated by outside forces to write symphonies. Her music is black magic and revolution, dance and danger. She auditions for and is quickly accepted into the Markos Dance Academy in Berlin. It’s 1977, German Autumn, the city embroiled in political and social chaos. The cacophony of bombs is beset by experimental dance in the Markos halls. Susie and her generation of dancers bristle against an archaic institution indoors like the Red Army Faction does in the streets."
With the Addition of Warlocks, American Horror Story: Apocalypse's Magical World Just Got a Lot More Complicated
"It was thrilling to see how the seemingly new Apocalypse characters tied back to Coven, but their true identities weren't the only magical surprise Episode 4, "Could It Be… Satan?" had in store. We were also introduced to a whole new branch of magical practitioners: warlocks!"
Apocalypse was always meant to bring in the Coven witches. But now that they're here, how do they fit into the season and how might they save the world?
"Michael Langdon rides through the night in a blackened horse-drawn carriage. The world is in ashes after ballistic missiles launched atomic bombs into every major city on earth. Nuclear winter has arrived. Mankind has fallen."
"Because the season is so ripe with possibility -- including how it will tie back to those aforementioned earlier seasons -- fan theories are already abound. Here are some of the best speculations about what’s in store for American Horror Story: Apocalypse."
"icture the end of the world. Explosions, chaos, bodies, smoke. What lingers on in the rubble? It’s hard to visualize nuclear winter as anything but raining ash and nothingness. But what if somewhere deep below the cinders of a ruined civilization was a new way of life, where people dressed in Victorian high-collars and purple velvet, listened to The Carpenters’ “Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft” on an endless loop, and ate translucent gelatin cubes in front of a crackling fire? You probably can’t imagine this, because it’s insane. Welcome to American Horror Story: Apocalypse."
A look back at the fascinating history between these two titans of dance.
