Judd Apatow Explains Why Making A Great Comedy Like ‘Airplane!’ Isn’t Honorable In The Eyes Of Critics

Paramount Pictures In the modern era of comedic filmmaking, few feature-length comedies are released that aren’t touched by Judd Apatow. He’s everywhere. But as the genre trends towards short and shorter-form comedies, fewer comedy movies are made, even with his golden touch. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy that Apatow puts on the shoulders of the studios that are increasingly reluctant to shell out the cash for a piece of art that’s not only really hard to make well, but turn a profit on.And so, comedy writers are gravitating towards TV or the internet and studios are mitigating the risk for loss by only producing what they perceive to be as sure winners. In a lengthy conversation with Vulture, Apatow explained the state of the industry and why truly great comedies like Airplane! or The Naked Gun aren’t being made today. It’s part risk, part the ability of the filmmakers, and partially because the studios want to get behind a sure-thing like a tear-jerking drama that will be well-repr…

Ben Affleck Says Both Directors Brought Their Own ‘Unique Visions’ To The Making Of ‘Justice League’

Warner Bros. When the blockbuster DC pal-em-up Justice League arrives in theaters later this year, it will be the product of two directors. That was never by design, of course. Tragic circumstances forced Zack Snyder to exit the film before completion and Joss Whedon stepped in to finish directing Justice League. Understandably, there’s a lot of curiosity about how a film crafted by the man behind Batman v Superman would mesh with a considerable assist by the filmmaker that assembled the Avengers. (Twice.)Currently serving cinematic Batman Ben Affleck addressed the director change in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. Affleck acknowledged it was somewhat different while giving glowing praise to both Snyder and Whedon.“It’s a little bit unorthodox,” admits Ben Affleck. “Zack had a family tragedy, and stepped off, which was horrible. For the movie, the best person we could’ve possibly found was Joss. We got really lucky that he stepped in.” Affleck describes the resulting film as “a…

How to Grow Crabapple Trees

A crabapple tree is a flowering tree that adds lovely color to any landscape. In the fall, the tree also produces edible fruit and often offers attractive fall foliage, which gives it multi-season appeal. You can grow a crabapple tree from seeds or purchase a young tree at a nursery for planting. The most important step in growing a healthy tree, though, is ensuring that it receives full sun and is watered thoroughly.EditStepsEditTreating the Seeds for PlantingMix the seeds with compost. Place a handful of crabapple seeds in a pot or other gardening container. Add two to three handfuls of peat-free compost to the container, and combine the two fully.[1] You can substitute leaf mold compost if you prefer.Moisten the mixture. Once the seeds and compost are mixed, add some water to the mixture to moisten it. You want to add just enough that when you squeeze a handful of the seed mixture, only a couple of drops of water emerge.[2]

If you add too much water to the mixture, mix in a little mo…

Netflix And Disney Are Negotiating The Fate Of Their ‘Star Wars’ And ‘Marvel’ Titles Beyond 2019

Disney When news broke that Disney would be divorcing Netflix (BUT NOT BECAUSE OF ANYTHING YOU DID, SWEETIE!) and launching its own independent streaming service people understandably flipped out. According to a new report from Reuters, Netflix is making a play to retain some colossal titles that exist under the Disney banner.Netflix Inc. are in “active discussions” to keep Marvel and Star Wars films on the streaming service after the upcoming split in 2019. (The migration will not include Marvel properties like Jessica Jones and Luke Cage which are under a different deal.) Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos told Reuters that Netflix are still discussing an agreement that could keep the Lucasfilm and Marvel Entertainment around into the 2020s. Meanwhile, Disney has been fairly quiet about their vision for what will become of the mutants and Jedi on Netflix’s roster.In his interview with Reuters, Sarandos shared that he expected this sort of exodus as an inevitability of the technologic…

James Cameron Gave His Thoughts On ‘Alien: Covenant’ And Why He Wants To Return To ‘The Terminator’

20th Century Fox James Cameron has roughly 73 Avatar sequels to knock out, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have some spare time to chat about other cinematic developments. Well, he probably doesn’t have spare time, but the dude’s richer than god and gave us The Terminator, so he can sort his own schedule out.Cameron fielded questions on Facebook Live as part of promo for his 3D update of Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Among the subjects addressed was Ridley Scott’s Alien: Covenant. Cameron, who made his distinctive mark on the franchise with 1986’s Aliens, offered up raise Scott’s style while not exactly giving a warm review of the film’s substance. Spoiler-y talk ahoy! (h/t to /Film for the transcription)I thought that Alien: Covenant was a great ride. It was beautiful. I love Ridley’s films and I love his filmmaking, I love the beauty of the photography, I love the visceral sense that you’re there, that you’re present. It’s not a film that I would have made. I don’t like films where yo…

Coyote and Raven, American Tricksters: Crash Course World Mythology #22

Mike Rugnetta continues to teach you about Tricksters in myth, and this time we're headed to the Americas. Coyote and Raven appear in stories from many Native American groups, and more often than not, they're tricky. They're also often kind of, well, nasty. Not to get too judgy. But we do a lot of talking about poop in this episode. I'm just saying. We also talk about Tricksters as creators, as Coyote creates constellations, and Raven creates some rivers.

Jim Jefferies Lost Out On A Chance To Work With Martin Scorsese Because A Casting Director Watched His Stand-Up

Comedian and Comedy Central certified social commentator Jim Jeffries is apparently one hell of a schmoozer. Too bad his powers in the craft can only go so far.Jeffries popped by the Late Show for a visit with Stephen Colbert and relayed a story about how a miserable flight experience nearly turned into a ridiculous career opportunity. It all came about when the Aussie was trying his best to shield himself from conversation with an incredibly chatty neighbor on the plane. After some polite small talk and a desperate bid to avoid having to talk the whole trip through, Jeffries discovered he was seated next to Martin Scorsese’s casting director. That’s when the charm came on.“I wanted to sleep on that flight but I schmoozed the ass off that woman for about five hours,” shared Jeffries. “I’ve never been more charming in my life!”As Colbert put it, Jeffries treated his newfound close personal friend like “the only girl in a mining time.” So how’d it play out? We’ll let Jim Jeffries explai…

How to Increase Driving Visibility in Rain

Driving in the rain, especially after dark, can cause dramatic declines in visibility. The best ways to improve driving visibility in the rain are to turn on your headlights and your windshield wipers. Stay away from large vehicles that leave a large spray in their wake. Keep your headlights clean and clear, and change windshield wipers that are aged or deteriorating.EditStepsEditUsing and Maintaining Your WipersTurn your windshield wipers on. Unless your car comes with automatic wipers, you’ll need to manually activate your windshield wipers to improve driving visibility in the rain. Windshield wipers typically have three different settings: slow, medium, and fast. If the rain is light, select the slow speed. If the rain is heavier (and your visibility is poorer), select a faster speed.[1] If you wish, you could use the high speed in low levels of rain, but it is not necessary.There is no objective criteria for determining whether you need a faster or slower wiper speed when driving i…

Six Fresh Ways to Think About Retirement Savings

Most of the ways in which people talk about retirement these days follows along a few narrow lines.Put away 10% of your salary into a Target Retirement Fund starting at age 25 and you’ll be fine at age 65. Scoop up every bit of matching money from your employer, as that’ll help you reach your target. Your “number” – the amount you actually need to retire and maintain your current lifestyle – is enormous.The vast majority of financial writing about retirement essentially just studies the lines of that basic story. They might look at a few different investment options. They might look at a few different account options. They might evaluate how much Social Security will help.What they don’t do is offer different ways of looking at the situation. Often, it’s a fresh way of looking at a situation that can cause you to see it in a new light.What follows are six different and perhaps unexpected ways to look at your retirement savings that I’ve picked up or developed over the years.

How to Bathe a Pet Quail
