HBO’s Watchmen, Politically Uncertain But Magnetic In the Moment

Regina King in Watchmen (all images courtesy HBO) An interview with famed novelist Alan Moore from 2017 was recently made widely available on the web. In it, the writer of Watchmen is naturally asked about superheroes (an idea he worked hard to pick apart in that book) and their place in pop culture. In response, he muses that “save for a smattering of non-white characters (and non-white creators) these books and these iconic characters are still very much white supremacist dreams of the master race. In fact, I think that a good argument can be made for D.W. Griffith’s Birth of a Nation as the first American superhero movie, and the point of origin for all those capes and masks.” This is an interesting twitch of kismet, since the HBO television sequel to Watchmen, currently in ...

Jimmy Butler Breaks Silence On Kawhi Leonard’s Infamous Game 7 Dagger

Jimmy Butler is currently on the Miami Heat and so far, the team has been much better than anyone expected. Of course, Butler chose the Heat over the Philadelphia 76ers who are a favorite to win the championship this season. Last season, the Sixers were on pace to win it all but one play sent them packing. That one play was when Kawhi Leonard scored a buzzer-beater in Game 7 of the second round. The Raptors ended up winning the title while the 76ers were sent packing. Now, Butler is speaking out about that defining moment and how it affected his career. As Butler explained, he still thinks about it and how things could have been different had they gone all the way. “It just goes to show you how fragile life is. Not just basketball. Life,” Butler told The Athletic. “H...

It’s a Cardi Christmas. The “Money” rapper is giving back in Pepsi’s new commercial “A Cardi Carol” to help promote “Gift it Forward with Pepsi,” the brand’s holiday campaign aimed at celebrating and encouraging the act of gifting cash.
