The Hunt

Lady loading gun in forest - the hunt

Universal just cancelled the release of the violent horror pic The Hunt, following criticism by President Trump. The plot is liberal elites kidnapping right wing citizens and using them as game in a manhunt. Who knew that would be controversial?

There’s an excellent write-up in Time. Includes the trailer, which has been pulled from Universal sites.

Never stop yelling

Sometimes you’re watching an ad and for a while you’re just watching the ad, and then there’s a particular moment when it gets you; a punch in the stomach that releases pent up emotion. In this shouty Nike ad, for me, it’s the 47 second mark, with the girl and the line about having their faces carved on Mount Rushmore. What the hell? I’m a guy, I don’t like soccer and I’m not even American.
