Some creep made an overtly sexist edit of The Last Jedi, and even they think it's awful
"Basically, it seems like the message here is that this amateur filmmaker believes that interesting characters, big stakes, and satisfying arcs are for girls."

The Usenet Deep Space 9 recapper that helped inspire modern TV criticism | Ars Technica
If you watched DS9 and lived on the Internet in the ‘90s, you likely read Tim Lynch.
Every action has an equal and opposite reaction, Exhibit 5,768: the current golden age of TV has clearly inspired a golden age of TV writing. And if you follow today’s TV criticism at all, chances are a handful of names immediately come to mind (people like Emily Nussbaum at The New Yorker or James Poniewozik at The New York Times, for instance). But time and time again, stories on the rise of this format in recent years end up pointing to one writer—Uproxx’s Alan Sepinwall—as the dean of modern TV criticism.
While landmark TV writing sites like TV Without Pity (1998) wouldn’t come along until the Internet matured, Sepinwall was on the Web back when “Lynx and Mosaic were the only two browsers and you had to drive uphill through the snow both ways to get to the Yahoo! homepage,” as he once put it. Back in 1993, long before he started his own blog or went on to contribute to the Star Ledger and Hitfix, Sepinwall was just a college sophomore posting about NYPD Blue to Usenet.

You Gotta See This: Denis Villeneuve’s neon-soaked hellscape of a future is one of modern sci-fi’s most stunning visualizations of what our world of convenience could one day yield, but 2049 only starts there. In keeping with the spirit of Ridley Scott’s original film, this is a film with the patience to move beyond action and into the realm of existential wandering, a three-hour treatise on what makes a human, well, human when alternate intelligences live as slaves and humans have renounced everything that once defined them. It’s a film that shouldn’t exist by any conventional logic, which makes it all the more miraculous, and for our money, it’s the very finest film of an exceptional year for the medium.
Extra! Extra! Read Clint Worthington’s full review here.

Check Out This Fastidious Re-Creation of Knight Rider's K.I.T.T. | News | Car and Driver | Car and Driver Blog
As we enter 2018, we’re getting a sense that Knight Rider nostalgia is building. Mr. Robot showrunner Sam Esmail dedicated the opening sequence of one of this fall’s episodes to Knight Rider, and now we’ve heard from an Ohioan, Chris Blasius, who has constructed a ridiculously correct version of Michael Knight’s trusty steed, K.I.T.T.
Although the sentient Pontiac Trans Am voiced by William Daniels evolved over the course of the TV series, Blasius chose to focus on the car as it appeared during the show’s first season, 1982, digging up a hardtop Trans Am with a 165-hp 305-cubic-inch V-8 equipped with General Motors’ short-lived Cross-Fire injection. For correctness, he notes, he “had to have an ’82, [and the hardtop car] was the only way to find one, because most ’82s leaked from the T-tops and rusted out the floors.” The roof was then cut away and replaced with the T-top bar from a 1987 model. Otherwise, Blasius made every effort to restore the car with NOS parts from the ’82 model year. It even wears the correct Goodyear Eagle GT rubber.

Dude, you broke the future! - Charlie's Diary
I think transhumanism is a warmed-over Christian heresy. While its adherents tend to be vehement atheists, they can't quite escape from the history that gave rise to our current western civilization. Many of you are familiar with design patterns, an approach to software engineering that focusses on abstraction and simplification in order to promote reusable code. When you look at the AI singularity as a narrative, and identify the numerous places in the story where the phrase "... and then a miracle happens" occurs, it becomes apparent pretty quickly that they've reinvented Christianity.
