Movies that progress linearly have been pretty standard for a while, with even big names like The Shawshank Redemption or The Godfather having scenes occur in a chronological fashion (give or take a flashback here and there). However, despite there being an entire Seinfeld episode based around arbitrarily telling a story in reverse, the idea of a movie having its narrative unfold backwards hasn’t really caught on in a meaningful way. According to Variety, though, Netflix is going to give it a try with an original film called Shimmer Lake, a “crime thriller” that happens in reverse.
Variety says it’s about a “local sheriff’s quest to unlock the mystery of three small-town criminals and a bank heist gone wrong.” The movie will show each day of the investigation in reverse, presumably culminating in the heist itself so the viewer can see how it actually went down. Shimmer ...
Defeat hurts, but this looks pretty bad too: while celebrating a win in an FIM Motocross of Nations race on Sunday, the bike of a lapped rider came flying toward Jason Anderson and smacked him in the head. Video of the incident looks brutal, but Anderson’s race team later reported that he is OK.
There were only 40 chassis produced for the BMW M1 Procar Championship racing series between 1979 and 1980, and you’re looking at No. 31. It was a backup race car that didn’t make it to the track, instead living its life as a road car. Now, it’s been restored to its Procar glory—while staying street legal.

As CNN explains, this syndrome is “often a result of strokes or head injuries and can occur in other neurological disorders, including brain tumors and Alzheimer’s disease.” BAFTA revealed Jones’ diagnosis while announcing that it would pay tribute to him during the 25th annual British Academy Cymru Awards—which specifically honor Welsh performers—on October 2.
Fellow Monty Python member Eric Idle tweeted his thanks to fans who had been offering “kind responses” regarding Jones, and has also been retweeting a lot of tributes to him over the last few days.
People tend to get older as time passes, and it’s generally not all that bad. As you get older, you learn how to talk, how to walk, and how to drive a car, and eventually you might even get to the point where no longer have to care about anything beyond who is currently on your lawn. In Hollywood, though, aging is a little different. Being too young or too old can significantly impact your career, since there are very few prominent superhero roles (or just roles in general) for people who are outside of a certain age range. In fact, a woman sued IMDB a few years ago for revealing that she was actually older than she looked, believing (probably correctly) that it would put her career in jeopardy.
Now, though, actors and actresses no longer need to worry about people knowing how old they are, because California ...
