Who Left A Chicken Bone In The Shopping Cart?

I found this while I was out running errands this week. Somebody apparently polished off a chicken wing and left the bone in the shopping cart.

What in the world?!  I have so many questions for this person.  Like, where are the rest of the wings?  No one can eat just one.

Ben Affleck on the ‘Batman v Superman’ Reaction: ‘It Was Interesting’

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was a tale of two heroes and a tale of two outcomes. The film made $873 million worldwide. But it was also a deeply polarizing film, satisfying many hardcore DC fans but putting off others with its dark tone and heroes that I would characterize as, how should I put this, kinda dumb. It will lead directly into the Wonder Woman and Justice League movies, along with an entire DC Extended Universe, but the film was so dark and dour, that it made a lot of viewers less excited than nervous about all the stuff to come.

The jump from more indie-fare like the subtle Moon and Source Code to this summer’s blockbusting Warcraft was, let’s say, unexpected, but director Duncan Jones’ projects usually have this uncanny way of working themselves out. Last week, Jones announced that he was starting to shoot Mute, the sequel to Moon, this week, the movie he originally wanted to make before he decided to have Moon be his first feature. Now, it looks like Mute is heading to Netflix.

The Best and Boldest Genre Films From Fantastic Fest 2016

For over a decade, Fantastic Fest has been home to some of the most interesting genre films from around the world. It’s where fans of subversive, unique, inventive and truly challenging cinema discover new and exciting filmmakers and share memorable movie experiences. Although the Alamo Drafthouse’s annual festival does include highly-anticipated studio films like Arrival and A Monster Calls, those films are deliberately programmed to coincide with the fest’s smaller genre offerings — these are the titles that remind us that original voices and stories are still out there, that get us excited about the future of cinema, and the ones we’ll be urging fans to seek out and see over the next several months.
