INCREDIBLES 2 || Albert Burneko, a writer at Deadspin, took it upon himself to call out “New Yorker” film critic Anthony Lane in regards to his somewhat inappropriate review on “Incredibles 2” in which he states: “Take your seat at any early-evening screening of “Incredibles 2” in the coming days, listen carefully, and you may just hear a shifty sound, as of parents squirming awkwardly beside their enraptured offspring. And why, kids? Because Mommy just leaned over to Daddy and whispered, “Is it just me, or does Mrs. Incredible kind of look like Anastasia in ‘Fifty Shades of Grey?’ You know, the girl in the Red Room, with the whips and all?” And Daddy just rested his cooling soda firmly in his lap and, like Mr. Incredible, tried very hard to think of algebra.” Read more at: Deadspin.
FOX NEWS || The entertainment industry is abuzz this week after Fox News broadcaster Tucker Carlson, while covering issue of child separation at the border currently in the mainstream news, said “If you’re looking to understand what’s actually happening in this country, always assume the opposite of whatever they’re telling you on the big news stations.” Seth MacFarlane was one of the first to tweet about the statement, saying: “In other words, don’t think critically, don’t consult multiple news sources, and in general, don’t use your brain. Just blindly obey Fox News. This is fringe shit, and it’s business like this that makes me embarrassed to work for this company.” “Modern Family” creator Steve Levitan, director Paul Feig, and producer/director Judd Apatow were some of the other high profile names to speak out as well.
