    Reversing Roe

    "If you don't have control over your own body, what rights do you have?"

    Honestly, how can you not watch this documentary this weekend?

    Oh, what, you think it can't happen here? Have you been watching the news since Friday night? No? Go fuck yourself.

    All I'm saying is that you better order your coat hangers now, because there will be a national shortage of them by next year.

    Ricki Stern and Anne Sundberg brought the stark warning in 2018…

  • The Abortion Diaries

    The Abortion Diaries

    "Thank you for sharing."

    Abortions are good.

    Why is that a controversial statement? Abortions are good. It's a good thing when people have them. Over a million women have abortions every year. If it's so common, why do they feel alone? Why is it a secret? Why is it seen as anything other than a basic medical procedure?

    Now that Texas has effectively banned abortion, and the Roberts Court has stayed silent without bringing the case through its shadow docket,…

    Plague at the Golden Gate

    "Asiatic infections are a constant threat to San Francisco's health."

    Not every story that needs to be told during Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month is a happy or inspiring one. Like other minorities, AAPI people have faced uncountable indignities and prejudices through the years, but remained strong in their faith of America as a place of freedom despite that history of discrimination. One of the worst but least known examples was during an outbreak of bubonic plague in…

    "I went through a windshield at four o'clock in the morning and I don't give a fuck."

    Middling Nic Cage movies are a dime a dozen, but Joe is a little better than most of those and worth watching if you can. That's mostly due to director David Gordon Green returning in the mid-2010s to small-scale dramas like this one, after a few years of goofy stoner comedies, what brought him acclaim over two decades ago. Add in a fine…

  • Frozen II

    Frozen II

    The screen glows white in the theatre tonight
    Not a cellphone to be seen
    A film devoid of imagination
    And it needs to be in quarantine

    My face is scowling like a raging storm inside
    Couldn't make it good, heaven knows they tried

    Don't let them in, don't let them see
    Be the good film Frozen I was to me
    Raw deal, this reel, don't let them know
    Well, now they know

    Don't you go, don't you go
    Can't say…

    Gemini Man

    Now, this is a movie all about how
    Will Smith got cloned by a man of renown.
    And I'd like to take a minute, just sit with me,
    I'll tell you how he became de-aged in a film by Ang Lee.

    In west of some laboratory, born and raised,
    In a test tube was where he spent most of his days.
    Chillin' out, maxin', assassinatin' a fool,
    And all shootin' some people to graduate from school,
    When a couple of…
