By using 3,000 photos of Donald Trump and working in collaboration with deepfakes expert
“Deepfakes technology is getting better and better at faking the content, but researchers are also coming up with new ways to ‘detect’ fakes. So I don’t think there will ever be a time (at least in [the] near future) where somebody will create a deepfakes video where nobody detects that it is [a] forgery.”

Is Hocus Pocus Even a Good Movie? How It Became an Enduring Cult Classic Anyway
by TIERNEY BRICKER
Fri., Oct. 26, 2018
Thora Birch, a childhood crush and icon to many who grew up in the ’90s, give a lot of credit to good ol’ nostalgia for the decades-spanning durability of Hocus Pocus when E! News spoke to her at the taping of Freeform’s Hocus Pocus 25th Anniversary Halloween Bash.
“I think we’re in the middle of a lot of ’00s love right now. I think the energy of the film—the performances, the set, it’s all part of a lot of our childhoods,” Birch, who was 10 when the movie was made, theorized. “And hey, it’s kind of a female-oriented and female empowerment type of film. At the same time, at the end of the day, it’s a story about families trying to hold on and adjust and I think Halloween is not going anywhere. There’s a lot to love about Hocus Pocus.”

Mister D: I don’t know what is wrong with me but for a decade I just lost my voice, stopped being irreverant, and just seemed to go through the motions on everything. I’ll try to hold back on here.
This special was so cheesy, only a mouse could have loved it, Or maybe it was just geared to a younger audience which seems more likely. And no, the performance by those 3 girls was not “Iconic” Cute, yes, but Iconic is reserved and will remain the version by Bette Midler. I wish these hacky writers would leave certain words alone that used to mean something special. No, not every female singer and movie star is a diva, If you’re popular on Instagram, YouTube, and Facebook, you’re not a diva. So quit watering down the words.
