Yes, That Was a ‘Set It Off’ Reference in ‘Girl’s Trip’

1 hour ago

“Girl’s Trip” was all kinds of incredible, hilarious, tear-jerking amazingness but what put the icing on the cake was the movie’s nod to a 1996 classic — “Set It Off.” You see, “Girl’s Trip isn’t the first time Queen Latifah and Jada Pinkett Smith shared the big screen. Over 20 years ago,  the two starred in the iconic action movie “Set It Off,” that followed four best friends (ha, the irony) who decided on an elaborate plan to commit bank robberies for the betterment of themselves and their families.

These Republicans Are Speaking Out Against Trump’s Transgender Military Ban

1 hour ago

President Trump, who avoided serving in Vietnam thanks to college and bad feet that weren’t bad enough to keep him from playing sports, announced early Wednesday morning that he had decided not to allow transgender people to serve “in any capacity.” Unsurprisingly, Democrats disagreed. But many Republicans also split with Trump. Here are a few: Sen. Joni Ernst (Iowa) The 20-year military veteran, who served in Iraq, believes that anyone qualified should be allowed to serve, her spokeswoman told the Des Moines Register.

Trump’s Transgender Ban Is Horrific – But Focus on Health Care (Commentary)

2 hours ago

There’s a lively debate on Twitter right now between people who think President Trump’s hateful, idiotic ban on transgender service people is a distraction from the anti-health care bill, and people who say human rights shouldn’t be dismissed as a distraction. Both sides are right. Trump’s media strategy has always been to discombobulate opponents by throwing too many simultaneous outrages our way for us to cognitively accept what’s happening. It’s a war on coherence. He wants us to be so overwhelmed that we get distracted and turn on each other. But this is the »

‘An Inconvenient Sequel’ Review: Al Gore Dominates Otherwise Powerful Doc

3 hours ago

When Davis Guggenheim’s environmental documentary “An Inconvenient Truth” appeared in 2006, it was a widely-embraced wakeup call in which former Vice President Al Gore shook us all as violently as he could. The fact that Gore’s courtly impassivity rarely gave away any deep emotions worked in the film’s favor: the impact came from incontrovertible images and scientific statistics rather than easily-dismissed sentiment. Guggenheim earned an Oscar, and Gore won a Nobel Peace Prize, but there were plenty of naysayers anyway. Glenn Beck, for one, compared Gore to Holocaust mastermind Joseph Goebbels. Oklahoma Senator James Inhofe called him “full of crap. »

Trump’s Transgender Ban Strategy: Bigotry to Hide the Corruption

4 hours ago

There isn’t much art to Donald Trump’s transparent attempt on Wednesday to divert the public’s attention from the Russian investigation: Kick the transgender kids. You can almost see him pacing in the Oval Office, chafing against the advisers who warn him not to fire Robert Mueller, at all costs. Our obsessive TV-watching Potus hears every pundit on every cable news show (save Hannity’s) telling him that firing Jeff Sessions to clear the way for a new attorney general who would fire Mueller would set off a constitutional crisis. Trump hates being boxed in. Plus his Trumpcare health plan was revived for. »

‘Brigsby Bear’ Review: ‘SNL’ Team Crafts Amusing, Sincere Paean to Pop-Culture Captivity

4 hours ago

Superfans are having their moment (and if you’re pessimistic about this, you might replace “moment” with “age” or “era”). Not only are their favorite stories being administered regularly by the major studios, dominating multiplexes and displacing a more varied mainstream cinema, their inner psychologies are now being examined in indie movies and documentaries. “Saturday Night Live” writer-director Dave McCary’s feature debut “Brigsby Bear” — which stars fellow “SNL” colleague Kyle Mooney — is one such ode to community born of obsession (and, to some extent, placating that obsession). Although it plays it a little safe with some thorny situations and. »

Trump’s Awkward Timing: Harry Truman Desegregated Us Military 69 Years Ago Today

4 hours ago

President Trump shocked the Lgbtq community and much of America on Wednesday by tweeting that he plans to ban transgender people from the military. As many social media users were quick to point out, Trump’s decision comes on the 69th anniversary of President Harry Truman ordering the end of discrimination in the United States armed forces. Talk about awkward timing. On this date in 1948, Truman demanded the military to end discrimination as “rapidly as possible,” according to The New York Times.
