Swipe This!is an advice column about how to navigate human relationships and connections in an age when we depend so heavily on technology. Have a question? Email[email protected] About three years ago, my good friend ghosted me. I know people get ghosted by shitty dudes, but this was a friend! She had opened up to me about her life, and Id opened up to her about mine. I could understand needing a little time to adjust to new surroundings, but totally cutting everyone off struck me as super weird. I spoke to our mutual friends, and they all said the same thing. No one had heard from her. Eventually, I spoke to her ex, who is still friends with one of …

Last Christmas review Emma Thompson’s romcom is an overstuffed turkey

An attempt to pay tribute to the music of George Michael and the fandom of Love Actually fails on both counts and at many more things along the way Somewhere in the last decade, audiences, and in turn financiers, fell out of love with the London-set romantic comedy, a subgenre that had almost single-handedly been keeping the British film industry alive, or at least somewhat in profit. They were repetitive, predictable and filled with characters who were exclusively, uncomfortably, posh and white yet they were also undeniably effective crowd-pleasers and like many, Ive missed them, as parodical as they can often be. So has Emma Thompson, it seems. Because with all the confidence of a well-spoken Oxbridge alumnus delivering a …

Emilia Clarke is the best reason to go-go to ‘Last Christmas’

(CNN)For those expecting a traditional holiday romance, “Last Christmas” is something of a surprise. That will likely produce a split response to this dragon-free vehicle for “Game of Thrones’” Emilia Clarke, which, with its playlist of George Michael songs, really depends on what you’re looking for if you decide to go-go. Still, director Paul Feig (“Bridesmaids”) and co-writers Emma Thompson (who doubles, delightfully, as Kate’s immigrant mom) and Bryony Kimmings have more on their minds than just the usual romantic comedy. For starters, the London-set film incorporates Brexit into the plot, with Kate’s Yugoslavian parents having emigrated to the U.K., and her mother leery of anti-immigrant sentiment creeping into the country. The film derives its title, meanwhile — and very, …

Linda Hamilton ‘Went Nuts’ On James Cameron For Not ‘Treating Me Like A Human’

Linda Hamilton likes to draw a clear distinction between herself and onscreen alter ego Sarah Connor, but a bit of the character’s take-no-prisoners attitude rubbed off on her during an on-set clash with director James Cameron.  The Daily Beast about the While filming the climactic sequence in the first “Terminator” film when Sarah defeats the cyborg assassin, Hamilton said she asked to see a playback of her performance, which apparently rubbed the director the wrong way.  TOLGA AKMEN via Getty Images Linda Hamilton arrives at the premiere of “Terminator: Dark Fate” in London on Oct. 17. “Jim was like, ‘We don’t have time for this, let’s move on,’” Hamilton recalled.  “Like, ‘If you want to see a human being on …

Katie Hill Blasts Sexist Double Standard Fueling Her Resignation

“We have an entire culture that has to change, and we see it in stark clarity today. The forces of revenge by a bitter, jealous man, cyber exploitation, and sexual shaming that targets our gender, and a large segment of society that fears and hates powerful women, have combined to push a young woman out of power and say that she doesn’t belong here,” Hill said in remarks on the House floor. formally approve impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, marking Hill’s final vote.
