Captain Phillips Review: Paul Greengrass's Style Will Pummel You

newrepublic.com — Paul Greengrass could make the most mundane human activity-slouching in a work cubicle, napping in a hammock-feel dramatic. In the opening scene of the English director's latest frenetic film, Captain Phillips, we find the titular hero, Richard Phillips (Tom Hanks), leaning intently over a desk in his Underhill, Vermont, home-on March 28, 2009, to be exact.

The Supreme Court just delivered a gut punch to millions of immigrants.

newrepublic.com — Thursday's ruling came in the form of a one-sentence order. The justices are split 4-4 on United States v. Texas and the lower court ruling is upheld, which means President Obama's immigration plan for expanded deferred action remains blocked. In 2014 Obama gave an executive order that would have allowed millions of undocumented immigrants-the parents of children who are U.S.

Clinton world is worried about Republicans dumping Donald Trump.

Gawker achieves the impossible: sympathy for Slipknot.

newrepublic.com — It must be frustrating for Corey Taylor that his metal band is the third most popular punchline in music, after Nickelback and Creed (especially since half of the time people invoke Slipknot, they probably mean Limp Bizkit).

Donald Trump has already notched his first Republican casualty.

newrepublic.com — Renee Ellmers, who swept into Congress as part of the Tea Party wave that flipped the House of Representatives to the Republicans in 2010, was the first Republican congressional candidate to receive an endorsement from Trump. But a litany of Republican establishment groups were displeased with her voting record and invested more than $1 million to unseat her.

Do we need to start a Trump campaign death watch?

newrepublic.com — A week of all-consuming chaos has caused many political junkies to wonder whether Donald Trump might not make it all the way to Election Day-or even to the GOP convention in Cleveland next month-before finding some face-saving excuse for dropping out.

Donald Trump knows who the real racists are.

newrepublic.com — Trump has been on an island for the past several days after repeatedly making racist remarks about the American-born Hispanic judge presiding over a California civil suit brought against Trump University. Even his allies are unified in the opinion that his comments are bad.

RIP, Peter Shaffer.

newrepublic.com — I feel guilty about the fact that I have seen only two of Shaffer's plays, Equus and Amadeus. Actually, they were movie versions of his plays, and I don't even remember Equus all that well.

Karl Rove, Vampire, is lucky he wasn’t killed by Abraham Lincoln, Vampire Hunter.

newrepublic.com — The satirical "audio newspaper" co-hosted by Oliver and British punmaster Andy Zaltzman has been on life support for quite a while. By my count, they've only done one real episode in the past year. On Friday, Oliver finally announced that he would be departing the show to concentrate on keeping online media alive by TOTALLY EVISCERATING things on Last Week Tonight.

Does Donald Trump’s sister (who is a federal judge) think Mexicans can’t judge impartially?
