Fahrenheit 451 review

Ray Bradbury’s 1953 dystopian novel Fahrenheit 451 gets a slick, stylish update for the Trump era courtesy of 99 Homes director Ramin Bahrani. On the surface, taking Bradbury’s book about the suppression of knowledge and setting it firmly in a world that seems to be crafted in the image of Donald Trump makes sense, and there’s a potentially brilliant movie to be made from this concept.

This isn’t that movie, though. Instead, Bahrani weighs Fahrenheit 451 down with a near-painful lack of subtlety, to the point where the film feels like it’s screaming in your face with a megaphone, “GET IT?” Bradbury’s source material wasn’t exactly subtle to begin with, but writer-director Bhrani takes things to the extreme.

killmonger's mother

Erik Killmonger was a villain of Wakanda’s own making. Abandoned as a child in Oakland, California, and left fatherless and motherless, the Big Bad of Black Panther undoubtedly had one of the most tragic backstories for a Marvel villain. But what happened to Killmonger’s mother? We never quite learn her fate in the movie, but now, Ryan Coogler has revealed the sad story of Killmonger’s mother in the Black Panther Blu-ray commentary.

Killmonger was one of the greatest, most nuanced villains to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, so it’s sad to know that he won’t return. But there’s one good thing to come out of Michael B. Jordan‘s tour-de-force performance in Black Panther: he’s not lacking for work.

Jordan has been signing up for project after project, so we can count on seeing his talented face on the big and small screen for the foreseeable future. And his latest project is a doozy: Jordan will reunite with his Black Panther co-writer Joe Robert Cole in Netflix’s adaptation of Failsafe.

Inclusion Riders

(Welcome to The Soapbox, the space where we get loud, feisty, political, and opinionated about anything and everything. In this edition: should inclusion riders be requirements for all Hollywood production companies?)

Frances McDormand’s Oscars speech raised Hollywood’s awareness of inclusion riders – contractual stipulations that basically demand racial and gender diversity for at least fifty percent of a project’s cast and crew. It’s only been a few weeks, but we’re already seeing companies adopt inclusion riders as their standard policy moving forward. That’s a good start in an industry which has been extremely slow (and has sometimes even refused) to react to social progress.
