Two Cents 090: The Kosher Nostra

The episode in which The Academy begins fixing its accountability problem, Samsung makes a big splash with the Galaxy S8, Joss Whedon/Aaron Sorkin superhero rumors, Blumhouse may adapt Five Nights at Freddy’s, I share my breakthrough VR experience with Werewolves Within, Palmer Luckey has left Facebook/Oculus, Venice Film Festival fully embraces virtual reality.
