Sharknado 5 Recap: In Latest Schlock Attack, the Hunted Became Hunters

6 August 2017 7:00 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

I’ll say this much about sometimes-monotonous Sharknado 5: Global Swarming: it was a slight improvement on last year’s completely monotonous The 4th Awakens.

Surveying the franchise-to-date, as TVLine’s resident, I’m Getting Too Old for This Fish expert: Part 2 (The Second One) still reigns, having served up fun riffs on Airplane! and the like. Part 3 (Oh Hell No!) was inundated with un-clever NBC Universal shilling, you will (?) remember, while Part 4 seemed content to introduce a new, high-larious kind of “-nado” every five minutes… and leave it at that.

Picking up not too long after the events of The 4th Awakens, »

6 June 2017 2:01 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

As Dustin Lynch puts the final touches on his third album, out later this year, he shared some new tunes with an intimate crowd Monday night at George Dickel Distillery and tales of how he came to record them.

“When you’re a newly signed artist, you think you’re the bomb,” he recalled of his early years after first signing with Broken Bow Records. “And then you wake up and realize there are 100 other bombs out there, and you’re left with the crumbs at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to songs so you better get to writing your own. »

Trek to the Past – Star Trek: Tos Season One in Review

2 June 2017 12:01 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Star Trek is probably the most successful science fiction franchise of all time spanning six decades of science fiction storytelling. In the series, I will be looking at the highlights of all the past episodes from each season of all five TV shows that went before leading up to the new series Star Trek: Discovery that will be airing in the fall of 2017.

Star Trek: The Original Series – Season One

Original Broadcast: (September 8th 1966 – April 29th 1967)

Development

After a failed attempt at selling Star Trek to NBC with the pilot ‘The Cage’, starring Jeffrey Hunter as Captain Christopher Pike, NBC told Gene Roddenberry to film a second pilot with a more “action & adventure” orientated plot – which was unheard of at the time. Roddenberry complied and wrote two story outlines: one being ‘Mudd’s Women’ and the second being ‘The Omega Glory’ both of which were produced later on the series »

Melissa McCarthy to Be Honored at Artemis Women in Action Film Fest

12 April 2017 1:01 PM, PDT | Women and Hollywood | See recent Women and Hollywood news »

Melissa McCarthy in “Spy

Melissa McCarthy’s filmography includes roles such as a ghost-catcher, spy, and cop, so it comes as no surprise that the Oscar-nominated actress will be honored with the Powerhouse award by the Artemis Women in Action Film Festival. Variety broke the news.

Ghostbusters,” “Spy,” “The Heat,” “Identity Thief,” and “Tammy” are among the action-packed films McCarthy has starred in.

“Melissa has epitomized female action heroes in countless films,” the festival commented. “She has always embraced characters who are physically empowered — even when they make us laugh.”

“Our film festival seeks to redefine the image of women, not just on screen, but in culture as well,” emphasized Melanie Wise, the festival’s founder. “Our official hashtag is #womenkickass, and we try to convey that sensibility in everything that we do.”

McCarthy will be presented with the honor on the fest’s opening night, April 20. Other women set to be honored at the third edition of the fest include McCarthy’s stuntwoman Luci Romberg, actress Nichelle Nichols (“Star Trek”), and former Mma star and actress Gina Carano (“Deadpool”).

McCarthy received an Oscar nomination in 2012 for her role in “Bridesmaids.” Her upcoming projects include Marielle Heller’s dark comedy “Can You Ever Forgive Me?” and the college-set comedy “Life of the Party.” She co-wrote the latter film, which co-stars “Love’s” Gillian Jacobs.

Check out our guest post explaining why McCarthy offers a better return on investment than Tom Cruise, one of the best-known action stars of all-time.

Artemis Women in Action Film Festival runs from April 20–23 in La.

Melissa McCarthy to Be Honored at Artemis Women in Action Film Fest was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
