What makes a bad movie? When thinking about this question, I like to contemplate a variety of factors. I consider how bad the acting is, how underdeveloped story is, and how often the director disrespects the audience’s intelligence.
I also like to think about how true the movie is to its intended genre. Is the horror movie scary? Is the comedy funny? Sure, these are subjective standards. What I find funny, you may not and vice versa. However, I think the true test of how bad a movie is depends on how you react during the film. Are you constantly checking the time on your phone? Does it take multiple viewings to get through the movie?
This is it, the final chapter in a franchise that has spanned five decades. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will be the third epsiode in the Star Wars sequel trilogy, and the ninth and final episode in the “Skywalker Saga.” J.J. Abrams will once again be directing the film. He directed Episode 7, the first in the sequel trilogy. Abrams took a hiatus leaving Rian Johnson to direct Episode 8. Many were disappointed by Johnson’s effort, saying that there was a disconnect between the first two films. Abrams will surely have his work cut out for him in wrapping up countless story lines in a satisfactory manner. Though, if anyone can do it, it’s him.

Black ant guacamole. Grasshopper tacos and cricket quesadillas. Silkworm cookies and mealworm brownies. The menu appeared to be out of a fictional story, but insect-chef Joseph Yoon of Brooklyn Bugs was quite serious as he described the unique and vivid flavors each insect would bring to the dishes we were preparing at UW-Madison’s “Swarm to Table: Cooking with Insects Workshop.”
A planned meeting between France's prime minister and a team of representatives of a nationwide protest movement collapsed Friday amid threats from some demonstrators and after a request to broadcast the talks live was rejected. The fiasco came on the eve of protests planned Saturday across France, including on Paris' Champs-Elysees avenue, where a demonstration last weekend turned violent.
You won't see Beto O'Rourke announce whether he's running for president for a while, but the Texas Democrat will be anything but invisible. O'Rourke appears to be testing public opinion at a number of appearances before deciding whether he has garnered enough American affection to wage a respectable campaign against a wide field of potential Democratic contenders — some already Congressional rockstars within their party — for the nation's highest office in 2020. O'Rourke was relatively unknown before late entry into the Senate race against Ted Cruz nearly earned him the entrenched Republican's seat and catapulted him to prominence in the party in 2018 — even as he lost his seat in the House, where he had served a mere three terms. Should he choose to run, his potential opponents include Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, former Vice President Joe Biden and former California AG Kamala Harris, who is even newer to national politics than O'Rourke. Harris was elected to the Senate in 2018, along with a wave of diverse Democrats and has been one of its most visible members. A number of other Dems are also reportedly considering running in 2020 — announcements are expected in coming weeks, but the two years leading up to the next presidential election are already shaping up to be dominated by Democrats determined to drive Donald Trump from D.C..
