How to Avoid a Political Showdown at the Thanksgiving Table, with Etiquette Expert Lizzie Post

  • PEOPLE.com
Ah, Thanksgiving, a day to put our cooking skills and our aptitude for non-violent conflict resolution to the test.

Families around the country will come together this Thursday to eat, drink, give thanks and remember that time a few hundred years ago when groups of people from different backgrounds and with disparate beliefs managed to come together to eat dinner in peace.

And if they can do it, so can we.

Any family gathering holds the possibility of disagreements among members of different generations or with conflicting political views, but with political tensions running especially high post-election, a universal dread

‘Damnation’: A Black Female Prostitute May Be the Most Subversive Character on USA’s Crazy New Pulp Western

‘Damnation’: A Black Female Prostitute May Be the Most Subversive Character on USA’s Crazy New Pulp Western
[Editor’s Note: The following contains spoilers from “Damnation’s” first two episodes, “Sam Riley’s Body” and “Whose Side Are You On?”]

As IndieWire wrote in its initial review of USA Network’s new Depression-era series, “Damnation” is anything but subtle. People die — a lot, horribly, and sometimes, even their corpses are carted around and posed a la Christ on the cross. Brothers pull guns on each other because their mutual hatred runs as deep as the Grand Canyon. Checking a man for infections at a local brothel includes pouring Listerine over his crotch. “Damnation” is a blunt, equal-opportunity offensive pulp Western, which is why the introduction of two potential romantic partners is the least romantic meet-cute ever imagined.

Loner Creeley Turner (Logan Marshall-Green), aka The Cowboy, wanders into Holden, Iowa in 1931. Sent by the Pinkerton agency to furtively take down unionization efforts by the local farmers, Creeley sets up shop in the most peculiar way: He goes to a roomful of prostitutes at the town’s brothel and holds up a

Howie Dorough Dishes on His ‘Bachelor’-Like Romance Ahead of 10th Wedding Anniversary (Exclusive)

Howie Dorough Dishes on His ‘Bachelor’-Like Romance Ahead of 10th Wedding Anniversary (Exclusive)
Leigh Boniello was a 26-year-old music enthusiast, anxiously starting a new job for the Backstreet Boys during the height of their fame, when suddenly she found herself caught up in an epic made-for-tv romance.

“Her job was to get content of us doing stuff outside of the everyday show ritual, and I was always the one who would put my hand up when they’d ask, ‘Does anyone want to go hang-gliding in Rio today?’” Howie Dorough recalls to Et. “So, she would come out and we did the pyramids and so many fun things. I always joked the website became mostly about me!”

“It was like being on The Bachelor, because it was all these crazy experiences,” adds Leigh. “It was like, ‘Here we are in Mexico, let’s get a private tour of the pyramids and go on crazy adventures together!’ It just lent itself to a romantic situation.”

Sure enough, romance

Best Picture... Settled Contenders or Confusing Vacuum at Top?

Nathaniel R

In the absence of a Best Picture frontrunner, something I think we all can agree on at this particular juncture in time, does that mean anything could happen with Best Picture nominations? Or does that mean the Best Picture competition is fairly settled but that the films (i.e. campaigns) have yet to sort out who is the most formidable?

I'd argue, perhaps foolishly, that it's the latter. I see a fairly clear situation ahead where these seven films (and maybe only these seven) are going to be nominated. A winner will emerge but none have yet made a clear case that they're "the one".

Call Me By Your Name | Darkest Hour | Dunkirk

Watch Sarah Silverman Celebrate U.S.A. in 'I Love You, America' Video
Sarah Silverman declares her unbridled yet conflicted love for the U.S.A. in a new song for her upcoming Hulu show I Love You, America.

In the video, the comedian walks down a street proclaiming her fondness for all Americans, no matter their race, religion or political ideology. However, after praising those ranging from Koreans to Haitians and Irish to North Carolinians, Silverman realizes she's guilty of stereotyping.

"Wait a minute, what am I doing? I'm listing kinds of people. I'm categorizing human beings and putting them into little individual boxes.

1941: A Great Comedy For Slim Pickens Day

On Monday, August 28, 2017, Turner Classic Movies will devote an entire day of their “Summer Under the Stars” series to the late, great Louis Burton Lindley Jr. If that name doesn’t sound familiar, well, then just picture the fella riding the bomb like a buckin’ bronco at the end of Dr. Strangelove…, or the racist taskmaster heading up the railroad gang in Blazing Saddles, or the doomed Sheriff Baker, who gets one of the loveliest, most heartbreaking sendoffs in movie history in Sam Peckinpah’s Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid.

Lindley joined the rodeo circuit when he was 13 and soon picked up the name that would follow him throughout the length of his professional career, in rodeo and in movies & TV. One of the rodeo vets got a look at the lank newcomer and told him, “Slim pickin’s. That’s all you’re gonna get in this rodeo.

Cosmic Lovecraft horror novel 'Horror in the Clouds' unleashes

MoreHorror.com

We're definitely fans of Lovecraft horror stories here at MoreHorror and the Lovecraft universe in general.

Lovecraft fans are pretty particular with film adaptations let alone adding to his beloved universe. The Cloverfield films have proven it can be done and embraced on film if executed properly.

Writer Scott Shoyer is attempting to go down that road with his new novel, Horror in The Clouds from Severed Press. It will be ultimately up to fans to decide if they are open to the idea of introducing "a new breed of Elder Gods", (is that an oxymoron?) into the Lovecraft universe. If anyone can pull it off, it would seem that Shoyer is primed for it.

Check out all the details about the book from the official press release below.

‘Westworld’ Showrunners on How Their Show Is ‘Inspired by Art’

‘Westworld’ Showrunners on How Their Show Is ‘Inspired by Art’
There may be nothing in Lisa Joy and Jonathan Nolan’s Warner Bros. office that better exemplifies the overall design of their space than a pair of custom Pop! Funko figures their assistants commissioned. These vinyl figures, which not only feature the married co-creators of “Westworld” but their family as well, perfectly depict their personal and professional inspirations. “Other people’s artwork has a reciprocal effect on ours,” Joy says. “Our show is inspired by art, and then we see the fan art that’s out there that has been made for the show, and that takes it to the next level. It’s wonderful being a part of this chain of creative influence.”

On the office coffee table sit a number of books — ranging from the photography of Edward Curtis to the prints of Kilian Eng to “Blood Meridian” and poetry — from which Joy and Nolan draw visual inspiration for their high concept

‘Dunkirk’: Here’s Every Movie Theater Showing Christopher Nolan’s New Movie on 70mm Film
One of the most important things you need to know about Christopher Nolan’s “Dunkirk” is that the entire 106-minute feature was shot on 65mm film, with 75% incorporating IMAX film cameras.

Where to See Christopher Nolan’s ‘Dunkirk’ in 70mm

We’re just a few weeks away from a new Christopher Nolan film, which means questions may abound about what exact format to see it in. With around 75% of his World War II thriller Dunkirk reported to be shot on IMAX 65mm film stock (aka the vertically-longer aspect ratio first utilized by Nolan for The Dark Knight, most memorably for the opening scene) and the rest on 65mm large format film stock, the best experience one can have is seeking out a 15/70mm presentation.

As tickets go on sale this morning, we now have a list of all the locations in the U.S. and Canada presenting the film in 70mm. Before we get to that list (via Nolan Fans), check out a visual format guide from Anton Volkov, as well as a new TV spot.
