The most charming woman I've ever met.
Hedwig and the Angry Inch: A love story that broke taboos
Like watching the Moon landing or the moment they locked eyes with the person they love, people remember where they were the first time they saw Hedwig and the Angry Inch. The queer punk-rock musical about Plato, the Berlin Wall, love, gender, fame and self-acceptance started first as a stage show before becoming a much-loved cult film with a fervent fandom of "Hedheads" that unwaveringly adore it. Twenty years since the movie was released and 27 since John Cameron Mitchell and Stephen Trask first debuted the character at New York nightclub Squeeze Box, Hedwig has been a constant presence, being screened and performed all over the world.
The Matrix Resurrections is 'numbingly familiar'
It's been 18 years since the Matrix trilogy concluded, so why has Lana Wachowski chosen to revive the franchise now? She offers one answer early on in The Matrix Resurrections. The film starts by establishing that Neo (Keanu Reeves) is no longer the super-powered messiah who freed the human race from its robot overlords in The Matrix Revolutions. He is a miserable software-programmer called Thomas Anderson once again, just as he was at the beginning of The Matrix. The twist is that he's world-famous for developing three influential video games titled, yes, The Matrix. With me so far? The next twist is that Anderson swore that he would never make another Matrix game, but he reluctantly goes back on his word after one of his colleagues informs him, "Our beloved parent company, Warner Brothers, is going to make a sequel to the trilogy – with or without us." So there we have it: Wachowski (without her sister Lilly this time) made The Matrix Resurrections simply because she didn't want someone else to do it behind her back.
Why Buster Keaton is today's most influential actor
Buster Keaton was something of an enigma to his own era. The silent-film star launched himself between rooftops, battled storms and sand dunes, boarded moving vehicles – and frequently trailed behind them, perfectly horizontal and as suspended as our disbelief – all in the name of comedy, and all while seeming unfazed. Film historian Peter Kramer, in his essay The Makings of a Comic Star, contends that Keaton's "deadpan performance was seen as a highly inappropriate response to the task of creating characters which were rounded and believable". His unrelenting imperturbability was misinterpreted as a lack of emotional expression, or perhaps acting skill.
The bizarre "mirage"
There are many natural landscapes and amazing natural phenomena in the world, and from the perspective of spectacular scenery, a "mirage" is undoubtedly a strange and spectacular sight. Most people may have never seen a "mirage" in their lives.
Are the poles of Mars also icy worlds?
When it comes to the Earth's South Pole and the North Pole, everyone's mind will immediately conjure up images of icy skies and snow-capped mountains. So, the Earth's neighbors - Mars, that is, Iron Man Musk said to immigrate to the planet, its north and south poles, and how it is? Will also be the magnificent appearance of snow and ice?
How was the Earth formed?
Scientists have detected more than 5,000 planets beyond our solar system, and it is estimated that at least 25 percent of the stars have planets. However, astronomers have yet to definitively find an Earth-like planet with life. The history of Earth's formation and composition has been an unsolved human puzzle. Recent studies have found that the Earth's current, the recent composition would not be entirely consistent if it were composed of only the most primitive rocky meteorites. The chemical composition of the Earth's crust has changed over time due to the numerous impacts of smaller rocky bodies.
Life inside a star?
When we imagine other possible forms of life, we may sometimes be a bit carbon chauvinistic. This is understandable because carbon-based chemistry allows for the most complex structures we know of in this universe. But is there some other mechanism that would allow for the chemical diversity required for life? We don't know, but that hasn't stopped some scientists from searching.
The spiral arms of the Milky Way are breaking off, and what's causing it?
In the Milky Way, galaxies or celestial systems are closely related to each other, and if one of them changes, it is likely to have an impact on the other systems as well, even with serious consequences, such as falling apart.
Dark matter in the universe is decreasing?
Recently, an international research team from the University of Melbourne, Rice University, CERT, and other universities and research institutions has proposed a new view about dark matter through a large amount of data research and analysis: it is believed that the dark matter in the universe is decreasing, what is going on?
