Warning: the power of Christ may compel you while watching the new featurette from the Neveldine-directed film The Vatican Tapes. Also showcased in this round-up: "The Battle of Endor" episode of the Real Fake History series and a teaser for Fear the Walking Dead.
"The Vatican Tapes follows the ultimate battle between good and evil- God versus Satan. Angela Holmes is an ordinary 27-year-old until she begins to have a devastating effect on anyone close, causing serious injury and death. Holmes is examined and possession is suspected, but when the Vatican is called upon to exorcise the demon, the possession proves to be an ancient satanic force more powerful than ever imagined. It’s all up to Father »

When Jeb Bush revealed the slogan for his 2016 presidential campaign, most thinking people had pretty much the same reaction: Hey, that looks like the title of a sit-com! Clearly, the use of the exclamation mark was meant to distinguish George W.’s younger brother from the baker’s dozen of Republicans seeking the nomination, perhaps by making him seem a bit more more lively and vibrant. Maybe the former Florida Governor was trying to seem current by utilizing a punctuation that these days litters every one of our texts and emails. (If you say you’re excited to see me, but don't use at least one exclamation, how can I really believe you?) Generally, but not always, television shows that have dared to wield the exclamation point in their titles have done so with a precise purpose in mind, whether to demonstrate urgency, irony, or just plain enthusiasm. Occasionally, the »

Cinema’s Hidden Pearls – Part II
By Alex Simon
One of nature’s rarest items, a pearl is produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. Truly flawless pearls are infrequently produced in nature, and as a result, the pearl has become a metaphor for something rare, fine, admirable and valuable.
Hidden pearls exist in the world of movies, as well: films that, in spite of being brilliantly crafted and executed, never got the audience they deserved beyond a cult following.
Here are a few more of our favorite hidden pearls in the world of film:

Police have now apprehended the man who shot and killed nine people in Charleston, South Carolina last night in what police are calling a "hate crime." NBC News reports that Dylann Roof, a 21-year-old white man from Lexington, South Carolina who opened fire inside Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church on Wednesday evening, was caught Thursday morning in Shelby, N.C. "I can confirm there is a suspect in custody," U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said, providing no further details. Surveillance video photographs of the gunman, as well as images of a black sedan he may have used to get away, were previously released to the public. Read: Hollywood »
TV news crews and top anchors are descending on Charleston, S.C., today to cover the aftermath of what appears to be racially motivated shooting rampage in a church that left nine people dead and the city shaken.
Police are calling the shootings on Wednesday night of six women and three men at a historic black church, Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, a hate crime. The gunman has been identified as Dylann Storm Roof, 21, of Lexington, S.C., according to the New York Times.
After an all-night manhunt, Roof was taken into custody in North Carolina late Thursday morning, according to local reports.
As details of the slayings spread Thursday morning, news organizations scrambled to get resources and personnel in place to cover the aftermath of the killings and the pursuit of the suspect. The victims included the Rev. Clementa Pinckney, who was also a South Carolina state senator, according to the Times. »

In a recent post about Toyo Harada I talked about the order of Valiant character appearances in the original Valiant universe from the early 1990s. I thought about it some and decided to piece together three reviews I did of first three original (post-Magnus and Solar) Valiant properties in their initial arcs as titles. Please note that these are several years old so some of the references might not be up to date and I’m not a good writer now, so you can imagine how I was then. These cover the two hardcovers that the current Valiant owner released of the classic material, Harbinger: The Beginning and X-o Manowar: Birth, along with the classic first Tpb of Rai from the ’90s.
The first page of Harbinger #1 is a splash page, the backdrop is mundane: a traffic jam, trees, a helicopter hovering above, this is the real world, the »

Twin Peaks, Season 2, Episode 13, “Checkmate”
Written by Harley Peyton
Directed by Todd Holland
Aired January 19, 1991 on ABC
“Before you came here, Twin Peaks was a simple place. My brothers deal dope to the teenagers and the truck drivers. One-Eyed Jack’s welcomed the businessmen and the tourists. Quiet people a lived quiet life. Then, a pretty girl die, and you arrive, and everything change. My brother Bernard, shot and left to die in the woods. A grieving father smother my surviving brother with a pillow. Kidnapping. Death. Suddenly the quiet people, they’re quiet no more. Suddenly, the simple dream become the nightmare. So if you die, maybe you will be the last to die. Maybe you brought the nightmare with you. And maybe, the nightmare will die with you.” – Jean Renault
One of the early ideas behind Twin Peaks was that the murder of Laura Palmer was never intend »

If you can't win it, present it. Or in the case of this year's Tony Awards, maybe both? Two of this year's 26 Tony presenters, Bradley Cooper and Sting, are nominees. Plenty of these folks are also on Broadway right now, or are doing well in TV and film, like Taylor Schilling, Rose Byrne, Amanda Seyfried, Corey Stoll and Anna Chlumsky (who recently had a mic-dropping moment on HBO's "Veep" that should garner her Emmys kudos). This year's towering nominees include "The Elephant Man," "Skylight," "Wolf Hall," "American in Paris" and "The King and I." The 69th Tony Awards hosted by Kristin Chenoweth (also a nominee this year) and Alan Cumming will take place at Radio City Music Hall on June 7, broadcast on CBS. Here's the list of presenters: Read More: Tony Awards: Hollywood Falls for Broadway, But Some Get Tony Cold Shoulder Current nominees: Bradley Cooper (up for Leading Actor in "The Elephant. »

1971 was an incredibly violent year for movies. That year saw, among others, Tom Laughlin’s Billy Jack, with its half-Indian hero karate-chopping rednecks; William Friedkin’s The French Connection, its dogged cops stymied by well-heeled drug runners; Stanley Kubrick’s A Clockwork Orange, banned for the copycat crimes it reportedly inspired; and Sam Peckinpah’s Straw Dogs, featuring the most controversial rape in cinema history. Every bloody shooting, sexual assault and death by penis statue reflected a world gone mad.
It seemed a reaction to America’s skyrocketing crime. Between 1963 and 1975, violent crimes tripled; riots, robberies and assassinations racked major cities. The antiwar and Civil Rights movements generated violent offshoots like the Weathermen and Black Panthers. Citizens blamed politicians like New York Mayor John Lindsay (the original “limousine liberal”), who proclaimed “Peace cannot be imposed on our cities by force of arms,” and Earl Warren’s Supreme Court, »

WWE 2K16’s roster has been leaked on wikipedia. However, it looks unlikely to be the actual roster. Names like Kurt Angle are featured as a WWE Legend, which would be a surprising inclusion given his major active role in Tna Impact Wrestling. The rest of the list is reasonably plausible, albeit with a few other unlikely names.
The list in full is can be read here. The WWE names are Bret Hart, British Bulldog, Brock Lesnar, Doink the Clown, The Great Khali, Goldberg, John Cena, Sasha Banks, Seth Rollins, Sting, Sheamus, Steve Austin, Roman Reigns, Rosa Mendes, Rusev, Ultimate Warrior and Zack Ryder.
In addition, there will apparently be an Ecw roster. That will include Rhyno, Sabu and Sandman.
It is doubtful that this is the real roster. For one, why would Bret Hart »

Wayward Pines‘ Ethan Burke has (again!) been sticking his nose where it doesn’t belong, so it’s time for a stern talking-to from both Sheriff Pope and Nurse Pam.
RelatedMatt’s Inside Line: Scoop on Wayward Pines and More
In this exclusive sneak peek from Episode 3 of 10 (airing Thursday at 9/8c, on Fox), Ethan (played by Matt Dillon) warns Pope (Terrence Howard) to steer way clear of his family, and then calls him on the carpet about Beverly’s public execution and the strange place — a warehouse of some sort — where he just just spied Pope.

Step aside, gals of “Pitch Perfect 2” — the boys are taking over acapella duties for an evening. Jimmy Fallon‘s barbershop quartet, The Ragtime Gals, brought in a ringer for Friday night’s “Tonight Show”: Sting. Together as a five-piece, the fellas killed it on the former Police frontman’s hit “Roxanne.” Good luck in September against this sort of thing, Stephen Colbert.

James Corden, only a few months into his tenure as host of The Late Late Show, teamed up with Sting to say goodbye to 12:30 a.m. time slot innovator, CBS cohort and departing Late Show host, David Letterman.
Immediately following Letterman's last episode, The Late Late Show began with Corden and Sting, sitting outside the Ed Sullivan Theater and singing "Every Breath You Take." Though the British comedian tried to toss in some rhymes (such as "Paul Shaffer" and "wafer"), Sting assertively assured him, "We don't need none of that. »
James Corden celebrated David Letterman‘s last “Late Show” by pissing off Sting outside the Ed Sullivan Theater on Wednesday. The “Late Late Show” host sat next to the rock icon as he performed “Every Breath You Take,” and then ruined the hypnotic 1983 Police single by improvising some rap verses. “What are you doing?” Sting deadpans in the segment that opened the “Late Late Show.” Also Read: David Letterman's Final 'Late Show' Floods Social Media With Laughs, Tears and Appreciation “I just thought I’d add some lyrics to make it a bit more ghetto,” Corden responds. “We don »

James Corden and Sting paid tribute to David Letterman in a very unique way. Immediately following the end of Letterman's final Late Show on Wednesday, Corden's Late Late Show kicked off with a cold open featuring himself and Sting performing a rendition of "Every Breath You Take." The song started off promisingly with the legendary musician on guitar, but things got awkward as Corden tried to throw some freestyle rapping into the mix. "I just thought I'd add some lyrics to make it a bit more ghetto," Corden reasoned, to which Sting replied: "Do something, but make sure
