Watch This Guy Trick His iPhone X Into Unlocking Using A Horrifying Mask

The iPhone X claims to be one of the most secure tech devices on the market, but is it really? Vietnamese tech security firm Bkav developed a mask that fools the phone to unlocking on any user, and they did it in less than a week...so I'm guessing no. 

The mask (which looks horrifying) is specifically designed to fool the iPhone X into thinking they're looking at the face of someone who owns the phone. 

So who would use this? Criminals, basically, and that's it. That said, it'd be awfully hard to manufacture one of these if you didn't have a 3D printer, silicone, and all that jazz The Verge says you need to make this, so as long as no one starts mass producing them I think we'll be fine. Check out the phone getting tricked below.

2 New STAR WARS: THE LAST JEDI Photos and Why It’s Exciting that STAR WARS is Becoming More Diverse

sw_rose.jpg

Star Wars: The Last Jedi is the most exciting movie for me, and many others, this year. We get to find out what the heck Luke has been up to, check up on the bromance that is Poe and Finn, and even see if Kylo becomes less emo (I doubt it). In addition, to check-ups and follow-ups, we’ll get to meet new characters such as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo and Rose. Here’s what we know about each of these new characters so far.

Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo

Laura Dern as Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo

Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo will be played by Laura Dern (Jurassic Park), and has purple hair. Rose is the first major Asian female character in the Star Wars movies and is a rebel mechanic. She will be played by Kelly Marie Tran (CollegeHumor) and although we don’t know much else, Tran did tell Time, “John Boyega is very funny, and sometimes we could improvise[.] Is that answer diplomatic enough?” That’s what we know. We don’t know if they’re meant to be good, or chaotic, or lawful, or maybe double agents. Isn’t that best though?

I am excited to see Star Wars bring in more great characters, and even more excited that the cast is becoming more and more diverse. Tran talked to Time about her growing up:

When I was growing up, I didn’t see anyone like me in movies. And I wanted to be white for the longest time, because I thought that meant my story would be valid[.] When you’re a kid, you see images on TV and on billboards and in magazines–they all look the same, and you wonder, ‘Why don’t I look like that? And can I change myself to look like that?’

I hope new generations can watch movies like this and not feel like they need to change to meet what is portrayed. I hope that the new characters add to the story and create new role models and favorites for kids and adults alike. What roles do you think these women will play in The Last Jedi?

Star Wars: The Last Jedi hits theaters December 15, 2017.

BATMAN FOREVER Gets the Honest Trailer Treatment

Batman Forever was an interesting film. I feel like it took almost a complete 180 compared to Tim Burton’s previous Batman films. After two dark, Burton-y Batman movies, Joel Schumacher definitely puts a different spin on the films. The Honest Trailer team over at Screen Junkies is not afraid to point out how ridiculous most of the movie is (why doesn’t Val Kilmer ever close his mouth?!) but maintains (as it should) that it’s still not as bad as Batman and Robin. As Screen Junkies commented:

Before Justice League comes out this week look back on the Batman movie that changed Batman.....Forever - It’s Batman Forever!

Video Breaks Down Why Superman Reversing Time Is A Terrible Idea

If you've ever wondered what it would take for Superman to affect the Earth's rotation, you're about to jump into a very long-winded answer. In case you didn't know this before jumping in, it would be incredibly impossible, even for Superman. Even if he did do that, everyone on Earth would die. That's the simple answer, but Kyle from Nerdist explains it all a lot better below, so check out his video.

Netflix is Developing a Series That Explores What Would Happen if Christ Showed Up in the Modern Day World

Netflix is developing a new series called Messiah, which tells a story of Jesus Christ and what it would be like if he showed up in the modern day world. It's certainly an interesting concept. It will explore how society would react to a person who mysteriously appears in the Middle East claiming to be the Messiah and savior of the world.

The 10-episode series is described as a “suspenseful drama exploring the lines among religion, faith and politics", and this is the synopsis that was released:

Messiah will chronicle the modern world’s reaction to a man who first appears in the Middle East creating a groundswell of followers around him claiming he is the Messiah. Is he sent from God or is he a dangerous fraud bent on dismantling the world’s geopolitical order? In ten hour-long episodes, the story unfolds from multiple points of view, including a young CIA agent, an Israeli Shin Bet officer, a Latino preacher and his Texan daughter, a Palestinian refugee and the media, among others.

The series was created by Michael Petroni (The Chronicles of Narnia: the Voyage of the Dawn TreaderThe Book Thief) and some of the episodes will be directed by James McTeigue (Sense8V for Vendetta). 

Cindy Holland, Vice President, Original Content for Netflix had this to say in a statement:

Messiah promises to be a fascinating series for viewers of every faith, and a thrilling drama filled with multi-layered characters set on a global stage.

Petroni added:

Messiah will have every viewer asking the question ‘is he or isn’t he?’ How you answer that question may reveal more about you than it does about the show. Messiah challenges us to examine what we believe and why."

The producers of the series Roma Downey and Mark Burnett say that the series "could change everything."

"Messiah is a series that will have the audience asking big questions. What if someone showed up in 2018 amid strange occurrences and was thought to be the Messiah? What would society do? How would the media cover him? Would millions simply quit work? Could governments collapse? It’s a series that could change everything."

There's no doubt this will be fascinating series to watch. I'm curious to see where they actually go with it. We'll find out in 2019 when it's released. 

Review: JUSTICE LEAGUE Was an Enjoyable Film and It Made Me Love Superman Again

The wait is finally over. Justice League is in theaters now and there's no doubt that fans are going to flock to see it regardless of the mediocre reviews and terrible Rotten Tomatoes score. There's been a lot of talk about this film. Lots of fans are expecting it to be another crap DC film and a lot of fans are coming to its defense. 

Well, I attended a late screening of the movie last night and you know what? I actually enjoyed the film! Sure, it wasn't without its problems, but for the most part, it was a fun action-packed movie with heart. I would say it's better than Batman v Superman but not as good as Wonder Woman. In the end, it was a step in the right direction, and I think fans are going to like it.

The two biggest problems that I had with the film were the villain Steppenwolf and the VFX work that was done. Steppenwolf's character was not established very well and I didn't really find him to be that menacing. He came off as being a very one-dimensional character that would be an easy villain for the Justice League team to take out. And you know what? It seemed like an easy fight for them.

Then, I don't know what was going on with the film's special effects, but it was pretty cheap looking. Not sure why they skimped out on the VFX work, especially with the changing landscape during the climax of the film. One of the most glaring issues for me was Henry Cavill's CG upper lip. As you know, he had to reshoot several parts of the film with a mustache that would later be digitally removed. Well, that digital removal stuck out like a sore thumb! 

The story the movie told was ok. Batman and Wonder Woman set out on a mission to recruit Aquaman, The Flash, and Cyborg to help defeat Steppenwolf, who is collecting the Mother Boxes to destroy the world. There were a few holes in the plot along with some silly overlooked things that happen. I don't want to spoil anything, so I won't really get into specifics. But, there is one scene that leaves the team in a dire situation, then it cuts to them being out of it, and the audience is left wondering how they got out of the predicament. Then there's another scene in which they basically end up giving one of the Mother Boxes to Steppenwolf. 

Now that my issues with the film are out of the way, I loved how the characters were handled in the movie! Aquaman, The Flash, Batman, Wonder Woman, they were all were wonderfully entertaining to watch. Jason Momoa was badass as Aquaman, Ezra Miller was amusingly loveable as The Flash, Ben Affleck lightened up a bit as Batman, Gal Gadot was as charming as ever as Wonder Woman, and Henry Cavill gave us the Superman I've been waiting for!

Justice League made me love Superman again! I wasn't a big fan of how dark and moody he was in Man of Steel and Batman v Superman. But here, he was full of light hope and smiles. Regardless of the bad CG on the upper-lip, I loved Superman in this movie! He made me happy as a fan and it got me excited to see what Man of Steel 2 could end up being. 

As for Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon both having a hand in the film's direction, everything seemed to come together nicely. I didn't really see two different styles of filmmaking when watchng the film. However, you definitely notice both of their strengths in the film with Snyder's visuals and Whedon's character development. 

If you enjoy watching big spectacle comic book movies, you're going to enjoy this for what it is. If you go into it looking for all of the bad aspects of the film, you'll definitely find them. But, if you go just looking for an enjoyable good time at the movies, you'll find it with Justice League

George Clooney Set to Star in and Direct The WWII Series CATCH-22

George Clooney has jumped on board to star in and direct a new World War II project called Catch-22, which will be an adaptation of 1961 Joseph Heller novel. It will be a six-episode limited series and it's sure to make for a great and fascinating series. For those of you not familiar with the what the story deals with, here's a description:

Catch-22 is set in Italy during World War II. It focuses on Capt. John Yossarian, a US Air Force bombardier who is furious because the bureaucratic rule known as  Catch-22, which specifies that a concern for one’s own safety in the face of dangers which are real and immediate is the process of a rational mind; a man is considered insane if he willingly continues to fly dangerous combat missions, but a request to be removed from duty is evidence of sanity and therefore makes him ineligible to be relieved from duty.

This is such an interesting story, which is why I'm excited about the series. I think this is the perfect project for Clooney to take on. According to Variety, Clooney will take on the role of Colonel Cathcart. Here's a little background on the character:

He is a group commander at a U.S. Army Air Corps base in Pianosa and is obsessed with becoming a general. As such, he does whatever it takes to please his superiors—in particular, by repeatedly raising the number of missions the men have to fly to complete a tour of duty, beyond that normally ordered by other outfits. This becomes the bane of Yossarian's life, as every time he comes close to obtaining the target number of missions for being sent home, Colonel Cathcart raises the required number again. Ironically, Cathcart himself has only flown in two missions, one of which was accidental.

Catch-22 was previously adapted into a film in 1970 with Alan Arkin in the role of Yossarian and Martin Balsam in the role of Cathcart. The series will reportedly start shooting in 2018 and Clooney’s producing partner Grant Heslov will also direct a portion of the series.

Catch-22 will be the first regular TV role that Clooney has had since he starred in the 1990s series E.R.
