Re-shooting Movies Is Suicide

Suicide Squad Reshoots May Kill It Dead It’s funny how decisions get made on some of these big blockbuster movies – and the way they get treated really does make them seem more like product than pieces of art, which must be a really disconcerting experience for the director. This is of course a rumor, that Suicide Squad had million dollar re-shoots ordered to lighten its tone after less than favorable reviews of Batman Vs Superman and its super-serious mood.

Now, science can be pretty exciting when there are things like this being discovered, but one problem it has always suffered from, at least for some people, is the fact that how it is presented it is as dry...

Apple Vs. The FBI

Apple Are Making A Stand That Affects Everyone Apple taking on the FBI is making news, understandably. Could this be the defining moment for Tim Cook, Apple CEO? Just a good business decision to side with the consumer and the protection of their privacy, or a more far reaching and inspiring act of defiance on this new frontier of civil liberties? Well, it kind of gets to be both. Apple, always known for innovation, arguably hasn’t done anything truly out there and innovative since the passing of Steve Jobs, but this action is a game changer, and could represent...
