An American Pickle didn’t warrant a movie adaptation
On August 6th, Seth Rogen’s new movie, An American Pickle, was released exclusively on HBO’s new streaming platform, HBO Max. The film is a theatrical adaptation of the short story Sell Out by Simon Rich about an Ashkenazi Jewish immigrant that gets trapped and preserved in a vat of pickles for 100 years. When he’s finally discovered, he is introduced to his last living descendant.
Though she says 'women have a tight to be angry', McGowan says #MeToo activists have 'sold themselves a fiction' rather than face up to the true nature of Hollywood.
The impact of sluggish growth on year-end payouts may have peaked in 2015, however, when 66 per cent of white-collar workers received no year-end bonus. And the 2016 level actually represents an improvement from 2014, when 61 per cent had to go without.

Ambrose Akinmusire “the imagined savior is far easier to paint” (Blue Note) The trumpeter Ambrose Akinmusire imbued his second Blue Note album with the searching, genre-fluid sound of today, enlisting singer-singers and a string quartet. His social commentary feels even more urgent and stinging now than it did when the album was released.
For the dynasties that flourished in China around 1,700 years ago "the conquest and effective governance of Kucha would enable them to control all the oasis city-states in the Western Frontiers," the researchers said.
客户通过Twitter 和Faceboo向世界传播“糟糕经历”的能力已经改变了客服世界的生态。尼尔森公司(Nielsen)2012年的一项调查显示，超过一半的客户现在通过社交媒体寻求补救措施；与此同时，在Twitter上提出问题或抱怨后，大约81%的用户提出当天就能获得回应。但在今年秋天，事情变得更加有趣：9月2日，英国航空公司(British Airways)乘客赛义德?哈桑斥资大约1,000美元，购买了几条“推广消息”，猛烈抨击这家航空公司弄丢了他的行李。鉴于有偿社交媒体推广现已成为客户的新武器，从2014年开始，各大航空公司、信用卡公司、银行和其他累犯提供的糟糕透顶的客户服务或将走向终结。无穷无尽的电话等待时间和那些自动化的“电话树”（比如，“英语服务请按1，西班牙语服务请按2，您整整一个下午都需要等候接听请按3”）或许将被扔入历史的垃圾桶。
Over 10- and 20-year stretches, geographic and asset class diversification have proven beneficial for returns and risk management. Unfortunately, you are not guaranteed to see the benefits of such a strategy during any 12-month period. In an era of 140-character writing and two-minute video, should we be surprised that investors have trouble judging the success of their portfolios over long periods?
Ironically the list comes out the same day that Trump is meeting with Bill Gates, who is the world's richest man for the fourth straight year.

Hailed as one of the greatest films of all time, Taxi Driver tells the story of a depressed ex-Marine who attempts to assassinate a senator after being rejected by a woman he admires. While the titular taxi driver, Travis Bickle, lives a chaotic life filled with drug dealers and prostitutes, his story was never meant to be an unrealistic fantasy. Rather, it meant to expose the very real warning signs of a would-be gunman.
An American Pickle review
Although I knew An American Pickle would be a comedy, the trailer gave off the impression that the film was also a heartfelt tale about two men that were trying to navigate an unfamiliar world. Both men are dealing with great losses, Herschel’s mourning his wife and the son he never knew while Ben is grieving his deceased parents, and so I got the impression that the film would be about how these men navigate the world together.
Unfortunately, I feel like I got Neighbors 3: An American Pickle instead.
Entrepreneurs are movers and shakers. They can’t afford to analyze every detail or they’d never get anywhere. There is no place for procrastination in a startup. It’s a 24/7, no-vacation-or-sick-days kind of job that demands constant forward momentum. Make a brief assessment at every step and move on it. Trust your instincts.
Even when An American Pickle does try to hit emotional beats, it fails because of the outlandish actions that drive the film’s core conflict.
If you’re a fan of Seth Rogen’s work and looking for a lighthearted movie to enjoy for an hour and a half, then you might enjoy An American Pickle. However, if you’re looking for a movie that adds something to the time-travel genre while also being a touching story about grief, An American Pickle may not be for you.
