Punch-Drunk Love, 2002.
Directed by Paul Thomas Anderson.
A supplier of novelty items with anger management issues edges towards a surprise romance story with a mysterious woman, while also being blackmailed by a phone-sex line managed by a devious mattress salesman.
Taking the viewer into an intense, colour coded dream of a movie, with Punch-Drunk Love, Paul Thomas Anderson (Boogie Nights, Magnolia) further cemented his place as one of contemporary America’s leading filmmakers. Managing to create a film of beautiful poignancy while dealing with mental health issues and sexual insecurities is quite the feat, and when you add a memorable dramatic performance from Adam Sandler into the mix, you’re left with a movie fully deserving of this excellent Criterion Blu-ray release.

Last season, the Code Black TV show started off with mediocre ratings and the numbers plunged in week two.

Joss Whedon is once again trying to Save the Day with a politically-themed short video. Minka Kelly, Anders Holm and Luis Guzman star in “Fraud Squad,” which follows this week’s “Weatherman” in the “Avengers” director’s quest to keep Donald Trump far away from the White House — and offer a glimpse of the potential consequences of an actual Trump presidency.
This latest video takes aim at the problem or voter fraud — or, more accurately, the lack thereof. With a “Law and Order”–style intro — “In the U.S. Government,” the narrator intones, “there’s only one team equipped to take on the scourge of voter fraud” — the video presents the Fraud Squad as a quick-to-action task force who, after the action-packed opening credits, have literally nothing to do other than sit in their drab office and contemplate lunch options. »

Vin Scully, the voice of the Dodgers, is calling it a career this weekend after 67 years in the booth. If you will indulge me, I’d like to tell you about one of my favorite moments from Scully behind the microphone, and about one night at Dodger Stadium that will make me miss him even more.
But first, a little background. I was never a big baseball guy growing up, even though I played a couple of seasons on a local Little League team. (Our squad was called the Firemen.) During those days, when I wasn’t playing the game, either in Little League or somewhere on my grandma’s farm with my cousins, the presence of a baseball broadcast usually meant that something I’d rather have been watching on TV was unavailable to see because someone else wanted to watch the damn game. (I tried to sit down, »

Directed by Peter Atencio.
Two nerdy cousins pose as notorious gangsters to infiltrate the criminal underworld in order to retrieve a stolen kitten.
The main trio behind this film – the two leads Jordan Peele and Kegan-Michael Key, and its director Peter Atencio – mark their first big-screen collaborative effort here, a significant departure from their previous sketch-off TV outing of Key & Peele, to produce an action comedy that hinges on a silly premise. Keanu may retain the teams chemistry, but their small—screen past cannot mask some of their shortcomings.
In an explosive opening sequence, one that calls back to 90s John Woo action films, the audience witness the efficiency of two long-haired assassins known as the Allentown Boys, who decimate a Mexican drug operation. The Allentown Boys appear to »

Code Black wasn't an out of the gate hit.
But it really put the pedal to the metal as far as the medical drama was concerned. Every week, Code Black Season 1 had a very strong medical case, sometimes involving their own characters.
Rob Lowe is about to become one of those characters. He's joined as a series regular!!
His character will be introduced on the second season premiere on September 28.
A doctor in the U.S. Military’s prestigious Combat Casualty Care research program, Colonel Ethan Willis, has been pulled out of a combat hospital in Afghanistan and embedded at Angels Memorial to teach what the military has learned about combat medicine.
His aggressive, rule-breaking style is greeted enthusiastically by Dr. Leanne Rorish (Marcia Gay Harden), but not by all the other doctors.

Yesterday afternoon, the ranks of Oscar voters grew substantially, with some welcome diversity added in for good measure. Yes, the Academy sent out invitations for new membership about 24 hours ago, with 683 names getting the coveted tap on the proverbial shoulder. Again, what made it so interesting to note is that AMPAS seemed to actively seek out women, minorities, and younger artists, hoping to make the demographics of the Academy slightly less centered on older white males. It won’t suddenly change the makeup of the Oscar nominations or upend how the Academy Awards go down next year, but it’s a slow step in the right direction, and that’s worth applauding for sure. As you can see below, in addition to basically all of last year’s Oscar winners, the new members are a diverse slate. Among the names you’ll see in the acting branch now are John Boyega, »
