Jordan Peele’s Us Debuted with a 100% Positive Rotten Tomatoes Score.
So for anyone wondering if it’s just as good as Get Out—it apparently is. We even overheard members of our iOne family raving about the film in the office yesterday.
The film debuted at South by Southwest over the weekend, and all 39 critics who reviewed the film as of Monday gave the flick a 100% rating. You may recall that Get Out, which currently holds a 98% rating, received similar positive acclaim around the time of its premiere.
Of course, we’ll see what happens to that score once the rest of the world catches the film in theaters, but so far, things are looking pretty good for Peele’s sophomore horror flick. Us hits theaters on March 22.
Authorities Just Seized 1.6 Tons of Cocaine at Port Newark.
The New York Daily News reported Monday that the DEA seized an entire $77M worth of coke at the Port of New York/Newark. It’s the largest drug bust at the location since May 1994, Troy Miller—director of New York field operations for the Drug Enforcement Administration—told the Daily News.
“The cocaine, found Feb. 28, was in 60 burlap bundles hidden on two pallets in a container that also had a shipment of dried fruit,” the Daily News reported. “A law enforcement source said the container originated at the port of Buenaventura, Colombia.”
Charles Oakley Has Some Thoughts About Knicks Owner James Dolan Banning That Fan.
“The commissioner needs to step in and do something, suspend him, something,” Oakley told The Athletic’s Frank Isola of Dolan’s banning of a fan for telling him to sell the Knicks. “He can’t keep getting away with it.”
As you may recall, Oakley was arrested at Madison Square Garden in 2017 after an argument with Dolan. As Sports Illustrated notes, he later filed a civil lawsuit seeking damages for defamation, battery, false imprisonment.
“This man told the security guards to throw me out for no reason,” Oakley said. “I was banned twice in eight months. If I’m such a bad guy, why do they let me into Nets games? Chicago offered me a job. I go to games in Chicago and Toronto. Look at what happened to me and the other fans in New York. It keeps happening yet there is no punishment.”
