Here Be Monsters is hard to describe, which is perhaps part of the point when it comes to a narrative nonfiction show that largely (though not always) focuses on the strange, the weird, and the peculiar. Over the years, it’s amassed a vibrant anthology of otherworldly stories, from a profile of an artist who illustrates cadavers to a tale about a book bound by the skin of its author. The pieces are often unsettling, rich, and patiently told. Some come from contributors, though the bulk are produced by Emtman and Denton. The show has more in common with the equally hard to describe Love + Radio — you could say they’re part of the same aesthetic cohort — than with the increasingly voluminous genre of extensively-researched chat podcasts that trade in scary or murder stories and others of the kind.

The studio also punted its follow-up summer tentpole release, Marvel Studios’ Black Widow, from a May release frame into … [Read more...] about Which Movies Studios Won and Lost the Summer of No Blockbusters?
If the Qwikster debacle taught us anything, it’s that just because Netflix does something doesn’t mean it’s the right thing to do. Beasts of No Nation is not Qwikster: It’s a movie with ardent supporters and pristine credentials, and it will almost certainly attract an audience during its run on the streaming service. But its dismal theatrical performance also shows that the praise surrounding its trailblazing release was optimistic, if not hyperbolic. As usual, Netflix’s instincts are spot-on. But for the first time in a while, we can subtract some points for the execution. … [Read more...] about What Does It Mean for Netflix That
How did Ashley Banjo and his wife Francesca Abbott meet? Ashley and Francesca started dating when they were teenagers, after bonding over their shared love of dance. The Dancing on Ice judge previously revealed that he took Francesca to the Science Museum for their first date in 2005, writing on Instagram: "14 years ago I couldn't drive, so I took this girl on a date to the science museum to try and make her laugh and impress her with how much I knew about the nerdiest subjects possible instead." … [Read more...] about Look back at new Britain’s Got Talent judge Ashley Banjo’s beautiful wedding
