John Oliver Will Air Educational Ads During Morning News Shows Aimed At Donald Trump

13 February 2017 7:39 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

John Oliver’s politically savvy satirical news show, “Last Week Tonight,” returned to HBO last night for the first time this year, and it could not have come soon enough.  Getting straight to business, the comedian lacerated President Trump and his “alternative facts” in a 25-minute takedown of Trump and his administration’s dangerous false rhetoric and intentional erosion of trust in the media.

In a segment titled “Trump vs. Truth,” Oliver first takes himself to task for pointing out the obvious: “Donald Trump lies is clearly not a fresh observation. Liberals are probably thinking, ‘Wow, hot take there Johnny. Next you’re gonna tell me that Obama is aloof, Dick Cheney is evil, and Paul Ryan doesn’t climax until he checks his FitBit to see how many calories he’s burned from f*cking.'”

‘The Circle’: James Ponsoldt Explains Why His Dave Eggers Adaptation Isn’t Just Another Film About Dangers of Technology

9 February 2017 8:00 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

There’s one thing filmmaker James Ponsoldt just can’t seem to get away from: obsession. With films like “Smashed,” “The Spectacular Now” and “The End of the Tour” under his belt, Ponsoldt has a knack for humanizing characters with seemingly outsized needs, from addicts to recluses.

It’s that kind of obsession that also drives Ponsoldt’s next film, “The Circle.” Ponsoldt (who has always been a big believer in the power of the cinematic adaptation) has adapted Dave Eggers’ 2013 novel of the same name, which follows May (Emma Watson), a young woman who is hired by a powerful internet company (think Facebook, but bigger) and slowly falls down the rabbit hole of its many dark conspiracies and major secrets.

Training Day Sneak Peek: It Takes a Monster to Catch a Monster

9 February 2017 7:00 AM, PST | TVfanatic | See recent TVfanatic news »

Welcome to "Tehrangeles."

What better name for a city where the likes of former members of Muammar Gaddafi's Amazonian Guard are now getting involved with kidnapped girls and upping the stakes in their return?

Kyle's concern grows on Training Day Season 1 Episode 2, because he believes Frank's rogue tactics will put a kidnapped girl's life in even great risk.

One person who doesn't necessarily share that concern is Detective Valeria Chavez. Christina Vidal joins Training Day as Val, a tough a nails detective who knows Frank's value on the streets.

She's witty and willing to get down into the thick of things if it will save lives.

But she's also going to let the Frank fly in the wind if he goes overboard.

As Frank puts it, he can play dirty and stay in the carpet, and she'll still get her deposit back because he's not in her chain of command. »

Bill Paxton fails to fill Denzel Washington’s Oscar-winning boots in yet another entirely unnecessary small-screen redo of a hit movie

When historians pause from sifting through the golden rubble of WWE hall of famer turned incompetent president turned whiny dictator Donald Trump’s legacy, they’ll pore over TV schedules and earnestly wonder: when did execs become so creatively bereft that they had to remake every other movie ever made rather than come up with new ideas?
