The golden era of Pixar is over. It was a 15-year run of unmatched commercial and creative excellence, beginning with Toy Story in 1995 and culminating with the extraordinary trifecta of wall-e in 2008, Up in 2009, and Toy Story 3 (yes, a sequel, but a great one) in 2010. Since then, other animation studios have made consistently better films.
Thanks to the popularity of an indie horror movie called The Witch, the Satanic Temple (which exists only to challenge the norms and expectations of mainstream organized religion) and the film's producers have embarked upon a 4-city tour dubbed The Sabbat Cycle consisting of a screening of the movie followed by satanic rituals. It is their intent to start a "satanic revolution" and raise awareness of the increasingly blurred line between church and state.

A historic building in London’s Covent Garden, violently slashed through the middle, floats mysteriously in the air with no apparent support underneath the entirely dislocated upper half. A terraced house in Margate has its entire redbrick front slipped away from its frame and lies slumped in its own front garden. A red Vauxhall Corsa hangs upside down with the tarmac peeled back from the pavement and curled over. Welcome to the magical world of Alex Chinneck, a British artist known for his large-scale, mind-bending architectural illusions.

Prolific actor and Tarantino mainstay Michael Parks has died at 77. With roles ranging from Washington elite to Texas Rangers to bugshit-crazy preachers, Parks had an unnervingly convincing portrayal of characters that still managed to somehow just be Parks in a different outfit. We've lost a legend.

John Daniel was no ordinary gorilla. For starters, he was called John Daniel. And he had his own bedroom, drank tea and cider, and could purportedly do his own washing up. Villagers in Uley adopted the lowland gorilla after he was captured in Gabon by French.
In 1917, he was spotted for sale in a London department store by Uley resident Maj Rupert Penny. Penny's sister, Alyce Cunningham, raised John as a human boy in the village and used to send John on regular walks with the children of Uley junior school, according to Groom.
