Princesses Behaving Badly
Real Stories from History Without the Fairy-Tale Endings
Hardcover | Paperback | Kindle Edition
Written by Linda Rodriguez McRobbie
Quirk Books
Hardcover Release Date: November 19, 2013
Trade Paperback Release Date: March 6, 2018

Contrary to the popular Disney belief, all princesses do not determinedly sing their troubles away, either the old-fashioned way of waiting for the prince or the new-fashioned way of saving themselves with a perfectly happy ending. Real princesses are fearless (or feared) leaders, fierce warriors, or women who just don’t give a damn what anyone thinks about them. And many of their stories do not end happily ever after. And thanks to Princesses Behaving Badly: Real Stories From History Without The Fairy-Tale Endings, we can learn more about these royal leaders.

Stanley Kubrick’s ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’ At 50

2001: A Space Odyssey

2001: A Space Odyssey, the groundbreaking film by Stanley Kubrick, celebrated its 50th anniversary this month, a milestone for a film that remains unlike no other.

Transcending its face value of a science fiction movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey, which polarized audiences and critics alike upon its first release in April 1968, remains a visual allegory for a multitude of complex ideas that spread social, humanistic, societal, and ultimately spiritual aspects. Birth, death, and reawakening act as common and essential threads through the entire narrative, and it acts as multitudes of tones and styles interwoven throughout, with dazzling visual spectacles that arrest and envelope sensory perception in ways almost unheard of in cinema prior to 1968. It’s a monumental film, a true epic in the greatest light possible, and it remains a cornerstone of inspiration, wonderment, and an apex of what the cinema can really do and how far it can go.

Prodigy Star Richard Neil Interview

If you are not familiar with the name Richard Neil, I bet you’ve seen him or at least heard his voice before. A veteran actor with over 70 IMDb credits, Neil has also amassed a number of voice acting jobs for some of the biggest video game franchises around. Neil is fresh off playing psychologist James “Jimmy” Fonda in Prodigy, a low-budget sci-fi thriller that just debuted on Digital, VOD, iTunes, and Amazon. The film is written and directed by Alex Haughey and Brian Vidal and is terrific at building tension thanks to its minimalist approach and cast (read my review of the film here).

I spoke with Richard Neil about his role in Prodigy, working with a young co-star, and his current and future plans.
