In The Mailbag: Kolin Singh writes in “Hey Peter and the gang,  My question this week is about press screenings. I was curious about how they work. – How do you hear about them? – Who gets invited? – Are you allowed to bring anyone? – How early do you have to be? – How often does the theater get completely full? – Are there ever any Q&As with cast and/or  crew? – Lastly, are they worth going to? I’m sure they’re free and that’s a big plus, but is it worth it considering you’ll probably have to get there super early for good seats and sitting with so many people could cause problems with Phones, chatting, etc.  Love the show and keep up the great work everyone!”

lean on pete review

Andrew Haigh’s Lean on Pete is a social realist drama of the highest order, combining the gentle pastoral touch of David Lynch’s The Straight Story with a probing sympathy for individuals on the edge of society recalling the best of the Dardenne brothers. There’s no armchair sociology here, just rich character observation steeped in a spirit of compassion. Haigh never veers into grandstanding “issues movie” territory or troubled youth drama. It’s just the story of an adolescent boy in need of the tiniest bit of permanence and security.

That boy is 15-year-old Charley Thompson, played by Charlie Plummer, a pure but restless soul hitched to the fortunes of his good-natured single father Ray (Travis Fimmel). When the film starts, the two are just getting settled into a new home in Portland, and Charley clearly has the routine down. He unpacks his trophies, goes for a run around unfamiliar streets to acquaint himself with the area and puts his Cap’n Crunch in the refrigerator to avoid the roaches. Charley is no hopeless, despairing victim – he’s just stuck in a situation beyond his control. From a young age, he has already learned not to get sentimental and accept nothing as permanent.

But something changes in Oregon when Charley stumbles upon a horse paddock. A long-suppressed happiness and hopefulness reemerges, especially when he gets acquainted with the struggling equine named Lean on Pete. The horse, not unlike Charley, is caught in a difficult catch-22. Since Lean on Pete has foot issues and struggles to compete with the other racehorses, his owner Del (a weary, witty Steve Buscemi) rarely chooses to let Lean on Pete compete. And by not competing, Lean on Pete can never prove himself a winner, thus increasing his chances of being sold to Mexico – where he might be killed.

Without the slightest whiff of personification or anthropomorphism, a bond develops between Charley and Lean on Pete, unlike the usual cinematic connection between boy and animal. The horse does not exist to teach Charley some lesson about himself or life. He’s an extension of Charley himself, an object onto which he can project some of the greatest aspirations he holds for an uncertain future. When he’s with Lean on Pete, Plummer’s smile is radiant enough to power all the stadium lights at the racetrack, which makes the slow disappearance of that grin even more devastating.

“You can’t think of horses as pets,” Chloë Sevigny’s sapped racing veteran Bonnie tells Charley once she notices his attachment to Lean on Pete. She can sense the growing sentimentality he feels and seeks to brace him for the bitter disappointment ahead in life. Her warning might as well also extend to the audience for Lean on Pete as the film charts a course headfirst into the shame, uncertainty and desperation of homelessness and dislocation. Left with few options, Charley chooses to flee with Lean on Pete to chase the sense of security and comfort that eludes them both.

Haigh’s concern in this section of the film has little to do with the material conditions of poverty and everything to do with the emotional impact of this wayfarer’s lifestyle. It’s a heartbreaking sight to watch that light in Charley’s eyes get extinguished, just as it’s devastating to watch him clench his fists like a foreign object, not recognizing his appendage after discovering its capability to inflict harm on others. Lean on Pete does take a few dubious plot turns as Charley spirals farther away from family and friends, mainly because they feel a touch out of place with Haigh’s otherwise quiet, understated dignity. His film’s moving empathy means that as Charley grows to view himself in little regard, our hearts swell larger with affection. It’s a striking, shattering and altogether sensational journey.

/Film rating: 9 out of 10

If you went to see Wonder Woman, then you probably stayed through the credits. Marvel has conditioned us to stay, despite the fact that most movies don’t do post-credits scenes. There was no scene to be seen in this one, and director Patty Jenkins spoke to the Toronto Sun about it:

“I’m not always a believer in post-credit scenes. I feel like they make sense if the films are extremely similar. I think if you know the next movie is going to be set in the same world or have the exact same tone, then I think it makes sense. To me, it does not make sense to have a commercial for a completely different style of movie in the credits of another movie. One of my favourite things about the DC Universe is they were super supportive of me doing my own tone, but there’s no other movie that they have that’s of the same tone. So it just felt weird to do some other crossover. Also, the end of the movie was the end. It wasn’t, ‘Tune in later for more.’”

She was also asked what the best part of working in the DC Extended Universe is:

“There are a lot of great filmmakers around the DC universe and there are a lot of great characters. My favourite thing about the DC universe is some of these characters have been the greatest, most original superheroes for decades. I think there’s just exciting things to be done with them ahead and lots of different people that I’m excited about seeing. All of us are very different and we’re all going to do different things. So I can’t wait to see the variety, personally.”

Variety is important when it comes to keeping a cinematic universe interesting. These are some of the biggest and most famous characters of all time, and it’s going to be really interesting to see who does what with each character.

Summary: Before she was Wonder Woman she was Diana, princess of the Amazons, trained warrior. When a pilot crashes and tells of conflict in the outside world, she leaves home to fight a war to end all wars, discovering her full powers and true destiny.

Wonder Woman, directed by Patty Jenkins, stars Gal Gadot, Chris Pine, David Thewlis, Robin Wright, and Connie Nielsen. It’s available on VOD and Blu-ray today.

There have been rumors about Justice League for months now about reshoots and who is going to get credit. A few weeks ago, a rumor began to circulate that Zack Snyder was returning to the project in some capacity. Snyder walked away from Justice League after the tragic death of his daughter earlier this year. He’s been slowly moving back into the spotlight and released a short film this week. In an interview with Wired, Snyder was asked if he was returning.

But what about Justice League? He left his superhero team-up in capable hands when Whedon took over, but is he still involved? At least seeing it through? Not really. Snyder says it’d be “unfair in a lot of ways” for him to get involved again after being off the movie for so long. “I’m at a place where I feel excited about it and I’m happy for my guys and I love these people that are working on it, and they’re my family and I think they’re doing an amazing job,” he says. “But I’ve kind of just let them do their thing.”

That’s probably the right call to make at this stage. This is already going to be an odd project because of the director switch — bringing Snyder back would probably do more harm than good. The man is likely still healing, and this short film was him dipping his toes back into his craft — an excellent first step.

Summary: Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy.

Justice League, directed by Zack Snyder, stars Ben Affleck, Gal Gadot, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller, Ray Fisher, and Henry Cavill. It will be released on November 17th.

Over at the Disney Parks Blog, new details have just been released for the Doctor Strange stage show. Since the show will be on a Disney cruise, it should come as no surprise that it will be both interactive and family friendly. Doctor Strange will transport you from the Walt Disney Theatre to the New York Sanctum Santorum, where guests will learn all about the mystic arts.

Children will be invited up to practice new moves, and will receive a certificate upon completion. This sounds a lot like the Jedi Training Academy or the S.H.I.E.L.D. Training Academy, so if your kid enjoys both of those, they’ll like this as well. Your child will also get a chance to battle the Dark Dimension, and put their new skills to the test.

Unfortunately, adults are not allowed to do this, which is a shame. I know plenty of adults who would do any of the “classes” Disney offers in the parks. Just saying, Disney: if you wanted to make extra money, you could offer these for adults, too.

The Firefox web browser like any other modern web browsers uses IndexedDB to store persistent data that is associated with the browsing profile.

A report on German computer magazine Heise suggests that Firefox's handling of the storage may impact user privacy on the Internet.

Websites may store IndexedDB data when a user connects to the site (and allows JavaScript execution).  The process itself happens in the background; there is no user interaction or prompt.

While Firefox users have several tools at their disposal to manage the data, it has two deficiencies when it comes to the handling of IndexedDB data.

First, that the clearing of browsing data does not touch the data, and second, that Firefox users have little control when it comes to allowing or denying sites the right to save data in the first place.

Firefox and IndexedDB

firefox offline storage

Firefox users have two main options currently when it comes to IndexedDB data. They may use Page Info to clear the storage, or the Firefox Developer Tools.

A right-click on any web page and the selection of Page Info opens the configuration window. It highlights if the domain has saved data to the local system, and how much.

The clear storage button works, but it will only clear the data for that particular site. The options to set the process to "always ask" or "block" don't work properly however, and are reset automatically when Firefox is restarted.

The about:preferences#privacy setting "Tell you when a website asks to store data for offline use" does not work either" when it comes to this type of storage.

Page Info's permissions page has little use when it comes to managing local data, as it lists data only for the active domain.

The Firefox Developer Tools improve this slightly; the data that is stored in the database is listed by the browser's Developer Tools, but again only for the selected domain.

firefox developer tools indexeddb

Press F12 to open the Developer Tools, and select Storage when the interface opens. If you don't see storage, click on settings and enable storage there first. You can delete entries individually there, or all at once.

The best option right now to find out which sites use the offline storage is the following one:

  1. Type about:support in the Firefox address bar.
  2. Click on the "open folder" link to open the Firefox profile folder on the local system.
  3. Go to storage\default\

firefox storage default

You can delete some or all of the folders there to clear the storage.

Firefox has an option to disable IndexedDB completely. Doing so may cause incompatibility issues with some websites.

  1. Load about:config?filter=dom.indexedDB.enabled in the browser's address bar.
  2. Double-click on the name dom.indexedDB.enabled to toggle its value.

A value of true means that IndexedDB is enabled, a value of false that it is turned off.

Heise notes that the issue was first reported eight years ago to Mozilla.

Firefox 57 will improve the manageability of site data. It features a new Site Data entry under about:preferences#privacy which you may use to clear all data, and to manage data from sites that used the feature in the past.

firefox site data

This improves the management of persistent storage in Firefox, but it does not address the issue that site data is not deleted when the Firefox browsing history is deleted, nor that the permission system seems broken when it comes to persistent data.

Over the past 20 years, South Park has carved out an inimitable place for itself in adult animation history. Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s subversive masterpiece just keeps on going, although it has been subtly updated over the years. Even Les Claypool’s theme song and the famous opening sequence have been tweaked a few times. Have you ever wondered how the South Park opening would play like if the theme had a completely clean remix? There’s a new video that does just that, and it makes the series feel like completely different show.

The “Wholesome Edition” of the South Park theme was created by Chetreo, a musician who has previously released several terrific Rick and Morty auto-tune remixes. The most amazing part of Chetreo’s latest creation is the way that it recontextualizes South Park into something that it really isn’t. It’s not quite the Disney version of the series, but it does feel like a hilariously tame version of the show that we know and love.

If anything, this remix makes us curious to see whether Stone and Parker could make an entire South Park episode using the same approach without breaking character. We’ve come to expect so many off-the-wall and NSFW elements of the show, that it could be a lot of fun to a peer into a family friendly bizarro-South Park universe where the weirdness is still there, just below the surface.

What do you think about the remix of the South Park theme? Respond using Kenny’s voice within the comment section below!
