Ski Down and Mask Up — Resorts Try To Stay Safe In Pandemic Skiing Boom

Eager to get out of the house and enjoy the outdoors, more people than ever are hitting the slopes on skis and snowboards. "Oh, yeah. I mean, we sold probably a thousand more season passes this year than we ever had," says John DeVivo, the General Manager of Cannon Mountain in New Hampshire. "We were up about 20% in pass sales." Those passes let skiers or snowboarders ski all season and can cost hundreds or thousands of dollars depending on the resort. DeVivo says there's also strong demand...

One Night in Miami theorizes what happened when four famous men got together in a small hotel room after the world heavyweight boxing championship. Instead of partying like crazy, they got into serious discussions about racism in America. One of the men, Cassius Clay, planned to upend expectations by announcing a change of faith and name. Under leadership and guidance by another guy in the room — Malcolm X — Clay aimed towards a different role as Muhammed Ali, the newly crowned heavyweight champion of the world. Malcolm hoped the two other men in the room — football player Jim Brown and singer Sam Cooke — would join the movement and use their influence to forcefully demand racial parity.

The movie News of the World delivers a revisionist Western. The term “revisionist” used to mean a project that felt grittier than Roy Rogers singing cowboy songs, but now it refers to politically correct attitudes that defy traditional classics like The Searchers. That John Wayne/John Ford epic spent decades on lists as the greatest western movie ever made, with gorgeous location shots of Monument Valley standing tall while the epitome of a hero put his own needs aside as he searches for a little girl kidnapped by Comanches.

In the evolving genre of movies about avenging rape, Promising Young Woman offers an original approach.  Forget macho Charles Bronson's gun-toting from Death Wish. Forget Uma Thurman’s martial arts kicks in the two Kill Bills. Forget graphic violence a la I Spit on Your Grave. With sly psychology, actress Carrie Mulligan’s title character turns the genre around in writer-director Emerald Fennell’s promising new movie.
