Allison Dubois (Patricia Arquette): It’s 9:00. How am I supposed to know you’re Ok? How do I know you’re not lying dead somewhere? • Joe Dubois (Jake Weber): If something had happened, somebody would’ve called. If I were dead, who are we kidding, you’d be the first to know. • Medium, NBC and CBS, 2005 – 2011
She sees dead people.
From January 2005 until January 2011, Patricia Arquette played the role of Allison DuBois, wife, mother, would-be lawyer, and Medium to the Phoenix District Attorney Office.

The most recent episode of Marvel’s Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. was an eventful one in several ways (both Ward and May returned, Simmons was rescued from the monolith dimension), and it also saw the introduction of another character from the Marvel Comics universe.
After being introduced in the Captain America: The Winter Soldier post-credits stinger, it seemed like Thomas Kretschmann’s Baron von Strucker was being lined up to play a fairly significant role in the McU – but obviously that wasn’t to be, as the Baron met an abrupt end at the hands of Ultron in the Avengers sequel.
Well, it looks like his legacy might just continue on through his son Werner, who we saw Grant Ward recruit (not that he gave him much choice) in Tuesday’s “Purpose in the Machine” episode. The actor playing him is Spencer Clark (Bruce Willis’ son in Unbreakable), and here’s »

At 79 years old, Woody Allen may have a very familiar filmmaking routine, but that doesn't mean he isn't willing to shake things up. He's got an Amazon series on his plate, and he's currently at work on his next feature, starring Blake Lively, Parker Posey, Kristen Stewart, Jesse Eisenberg, Jeannie Berlin, Corey Stoll, Anna Camp, Paul Schneider, and Steve Carell and this time around, he's dropped celluloid for digital. Sony announced today the untitled movie is shooting with their CineAlta F65 camera, with three-time Academy Award winner Vittorio Storaro ("Apocalypse Now," "Reds," "The Last Emperor") behind the camera. Even more, the movie will melt your eyeballs by being mastered in 4K. Take that Gordon Willis! (Of course, I'm joking).

Demi Moore and Bruce Willis proved it could be done and, even to this day, they may have set an unattainable gold standard. Then Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin proved it could be done in the Twitter age. And Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck appear to be doing their best to be part of the club. And if even Amber Rose and Wiz Khalifa could make it happen, and they said some nasty things about each other... Why not Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green?! We're talking about exes who look just as happy to be around each other as they ever did when they were married, not least because they presumably had to bounce back from time spent together that was unhappy enough to prompt a split in the first »
1990’s Tremors was a hit with audiences and was one of the first horror comedies that really took off and appealed to its viewers, offering up likable characters, great special fx, and villainous mega-sized worms called “Graboids” that would instantly become horror favorites. The film, which starred Kevin Bacon and Fred Ward, was about two down on their luck handymen wanting to get out of a nowhere town, just to stuck there when giant creatures threatened the town’s residents, was able to instantly become a fan favorite. It spawned many sequels (Bacon would not return for any, but Ward came back for one, and series regular Michael Gross (Family Ties)’s Burt Gummer would become the one constant in the franchise and eventual TV series. While the sequels would fail to capture the magic of the first film, they were entertaining little straight to video entries that were big with cult audiences. »

Martin Carr reviews the tenth episode of The Strain season 2…
Does anyone remember The Day of the Jackal? Not the sub-standard, Bruce Willis pay check movie where David Addison dyed his hair blonde. I mean the Edward Fox effort which portrayed a cold blooded, calculating killer wrapped up in a web of deceit. Before the days of Bourne, Matt Damon and beating people up with paperbacks, Fox’s Jackal was the epitome of a contract killer. There are few who would claim to come close. Maybe George Smiley would be one. Whether you plumb for Gary Oldman or Alec Guinness in the television adaptation. It was these solid, believable, slow burn storylines which defined an era.
With a few exceptions storylines are defined by narrative set pieces. Point A is a meeting, Point B an explosion or act of retribution which sparks off another one, then another one and so on. »

Moviegoers can’t wait to see Katniss Everdeen lead the people of Panem to freedom or witness the Millennium Falcon roar across the screen after three decades in dry-dock, according to a recent survey by Piedmont Media Research.
The consumer tracking company polled 3,000 people about upcoming fall movies and found that “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2” and “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” were the most hotly anticipated upcoming releases. In fact, both films scored some of the highest ratings Piedmont has recorded since it began polling audiences five years ago. The company rates consumer engagement on a scale of zero to 1,000, and the fourth and final “Hunger Games” had a 514 rating, beating last summer’s “Avengers: Age of Ultron” and its score of 509, as the best overall number it has ever recorded.
The “Star Wars” sequel posted a 495 rating, the third best figure since Piedmont began its surveys. It »
