Jeremy Renner Is a Great Negotiating Tool -- Vulture

vulture.com — Somebody needs to figure out what to do with Jeremy Renner. By which I mean, something to do with him in addition to temporarily substituting him into existing film franchises as a feint toward replacing the franchise's existing star.

Is the Present Worse Than Fictional Dystopias? -- Vulture

vulture.com — At the annual BookExpo America conference in 2010, William Gibson gave a prescient address about the future of the future - or, rather, about the fact that the capital-F Future, the one he'd grown up dreaming about and reading about, didn't exist anymore.

Donald Trump would make a great President (if aliens attack earth)

sbs.com.au — An ongoing question in the presidential campaign of Donald Trump is whether, in fact, he would make a good president. His questionable temperament, lack of rudimentary organisational skills, sketchy grasp of policy, and feeble fundraising efforts have all raised understandable concerns on that front.

Trump for President (If Aliens Attack Earth) -- Vulture

VERY PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE: 'THE BLINDS,' COMING SOON

adamsternbergh.com — I won't say much more about it, except that I'm confident that if you like SHOVEL READY and NEAR ENEMY, you will really dig this book as well. It's a different world, and different characters, but a whole lot of fun.

How Silver Lake Became TV’s Neurotic Capital -- Vulture

vulture.com — For basically the entire history of television, if a show was explicitly set in Los Angeles, you knew what that signified: beaches, Hollywood, blondes of both sexes, cool cars, and money, money, money. Law, for example, would just be a generic show about lawyers, but L.A.

vulture.com — One of the great pleasures of the pre-internet era was stumbling on a lost masterpiece at your local repertory cinema. One of the greater pleasures was stumbling on a lost film that's totally nuts. Such a film is arriving in New York this weekend, screening at BAMcinématek from June 3 through June 9.

Is Angry Birds About Trump? Probably Not -- Vulture

vulture.com — Angry Birds, wrote Tom Bissell, is a game that's "great and infernal, and about which no one needs to write or say another word." He wrote that back in 2011, fully five years before Angry Birds, the feature-length animated movie, arrived in theaters today, and long before that movie's two-and-a-half-minute trailer launched a particularly insane (even for the internet) racist conspiracy theory.

vulture.com — The critical response to Captain America: Civil War has fallen into roughly two camps: the "it's an impressive juggling act/thrill ride" thumb's up and the "ho-hum, here we go with another overstuffed superhero epic" thumb's down (or, more accurately, thumb's sidewise).

Why Celebrities Endorse Donald Trump

vulture.com — For a presumptive nominee at this late stage of the campaign, Donald Trump has relatively few serious political endorsements, but one group has rallied around him with notable fervor: famous people.
