In the new film “Rememory,” “Game of Thrones” star Peter Dinklage plays a character who is “haunted by his past,” co-star Julia Ormond told TheWrap’s Matt Donnelly at the Sundance Film Festival. “He wants to try to find resolution through using an invention which is a machine that takes you back into accurate memory.” “He has a very painful memory from his recent past that he wants to unravel,” Dinklage said of his character. But to depict this memory-trapping invention, writer-director Mark Palansky teamed with Dinklage for a crowd-sourcing project to solicit the memories of real-life people to include in the. »

“We are nothing more than the memories we keep,” a character intones in “Rememory,” a conceptually promising but heavily contrived psychological whodunit that viewers are unlikely to store for long in their own memory banks. Starring Peter Dinklage as a guilt-ridden amateur sleuth investigating death and skulduggery behind a revolutionary new memory-extraction device, director Mark Palansky’s sophomore feature is peppered with such soundbites: “Memory is the ultimate decider of our lives,” “We only know the true value of a moment when it becomes a memory,” and so on. The final effect is akin to that of a Hallmark card inscribed by Christopher Nolan, and it’s that earnest self-importance of tone that finally makes this light sci-fi effort a bit of a trudge, despite Dinklage’s committed and empathetic performance. His “Game of Thrones” cachet, coupled with a reasonable narrative hook, may be enough to secure modest theatrical distribution for “Rememory, »

More than 200 protesters and rioters were arrested on the streets of Washington, D.C. after Friday’s inauguration of President Donald Trump — forcing police to use pepper spray and stun grenades, The Washington Times reported.
But Saturday’s Women’s March on Washington? Not a single arrest was made.
That’s according to D.C. Homeland Security Director Christopher Geldart, who told NBC News that despite an estimated 500,000 people in attendance, the march went off peacefully.
The Women’s March on Washington wasn’t the only protest taking place on Saturday. More than 600 sister marches were held in all 50 states and around the world, »

Comedian Jessica Williams gave a moving speech at the women’s march in Park City, Utah on Saturday — as celebrities broke from the annual 10-day Sundance Film Festival, which began there on Thursday, to stand in solidarity with the millions of people across the globe protesting the presidency of Donald Trump.
Organized independently from Sundance, the march brought thousands of people into the city of less than 10,000 residents.
“I live in Utah and it’s just exciting,” Urem resident Brianne Borup. 27, told People, through tears. “As a woman, this election has been a scary feeling, especially when you live in »

Finally, finally, finally a Laura centric episode! And it was well worth the wait.
It took slogging through a morass of tedium, but on Incorporated Season 1 Episode 6 we finally got to see what happened to Laura eight years ago, and how it started her downward spiral of self destruction.
I've made it very clear that the only character that means a damn to me on this show is Laura. She has a heart, a soul, and actual Feelings, which is very hard to come by in this world.
The fact that she is being used by Ben is heartbreaking, because for some reason she really loves that louse.
Ben is such a stone cold schemer, and to use another human being the way he uses Laura is reprehensible.
I mean, using birth control behind Laura's back, when you know that all she wants in the whole world is a baby? »
