Steph Curry’s Wife Tweets NBA Finals ‘Rigged’ for Money, Ratings

16 June 2016 9:25 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Following her husband Stephen Curry’s ejection in the Golden State Warriors’ Game 6 loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers on Thursday night, Ayesha Curry tweeted the NBA had rigged the Finals for ratings.

“”I’ve lost all respect sorry this is absolutely rigged for money… Or ratings in not sure which. I won’t be silent. Just saw it live sry.”

She later deleted the tweet.

Stephen Curry, the two-time Mvp, received his sixth foul for grabbing LeBron James in the fourth quarter. Frustrated by the call, he threw his mouth piece into the stands, which hit a fan court side, and was ejected from the game.

Curry apologized to the fan before leaving the court as the hometown Cleveland crowd showered him with boos.

The Warriors lost the game 115-101.

Earlier in the series, the Warriors staff expressed frustration with the NBA after star Draymond Green was suspended for Game 5 after flagrantly fouling James. The »

Espn’s Rachel Nichols’ 7 Takeaways From Kobe Bryant’s Last Game: ‘It Was the Perfect Ending’

16 April 2016 9:34 AM, PDT | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Wednesday night was historic for the NBA fans in many, many ways. Not only did Kobe Bryant play his last game for the Los Angeles Lakers after an iconic 20-year career, the Golden State Warriors won their 73rd game to become all-time winningest team for one season. But according to Espn host Rachel Nichols, the biggest surprise may have been the fact that Kanye West got “out-celebritied” for Bryant’s final game, forced to sit in (gasp!) the third row at the Staples Center.

Pandemic – Review

1 April 2016 7:47 AM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Review by Stephen Tronicek

Pandemic is a found footage film that never manages to feel like one because of it’s passion. Every little detail has been looked after here, and that might be half the reason it works. The beautiful sense of place, and gory action makes for a piece of worthwhile piece.

The plot here is simple. A few operatives are sent into a quarantine zone to retrieve a lost team. Lauren (Rachel Nichols) is the protagonist, and the audience Pov character (quite literally) but is hiding something

The fact is found footage is best used to either allow for creeping horror (as in Paranormal Activity 1) or putting the audience in a full on immersive intense situation (as in Cloverfield). Pandemic might benefit from falling a little bit into both. Pandemic does have a fast pace allowing only some of the  suspense to really pay off, but »

A Stronger Reason is Needed to Face this Pandemic: A Film Review

1 April 2016 4:00 AM, PDT | 28 Days Later Analysis | See recent 28 Days Later Analysis news »

*an online screener of this film was provided by XLRator Media. Director: John Suits. Writers: Dustin T. Benson. Cast: Rachel Nichols, Missi Pyle, Alfie Allen, Mekhi Phifer and Paul Guilfoyle. There are a number of zombie themed films in the horror genre. Some are better than others. Writer Dustin T. Benson borrows some of the better ideas from films such as 28 Days Later (2002), Dawn of the Dead (2004) and [Rec] (2007). Meanwhile, director John Suits shows all of the action through helmet cams'. This helps amp up thrills in these scenes. However, the film lacks believability, with a four man crew entering into the zombie Heart of Darkness. A pretty standard zombie thriller, Pandemic strings together a number of thought experiments; the result is slightly flat. A doctor has escaped the ravages of a viral pandemic in New York. In Los Angeles, Lauren (Rachel Nichols) is not much better off. The violent infected are roaming the streets, »

Film Review: ‘Pandemic’

1 April 2016 1:27 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Z-word is never spoken here, but director John Suits and scenarist Dustin T. Benson’s energetic actioner might as well have Zorro’s brand on its forehead given the general premise and scaled-down resemblance to “World War Z” and the “28 Days Later … ” movies. Originality is not a major virtue here, and the decision to go almost entirely with a first-person-shooter-style subjective camera may strike viewers as more of a wearying debit than an identification-heightening plus. Nonetheless, this is a solid if not quite memorable entry in the ever-expanding canon of survivalist undead cinema. Opening in limited release on April 1, it will doubtless reach a wider genre-fan public via home formats when released to VOD and iTunes on April 5.

In the near future, a virus has wiped out most of the U.S. population. It hit so fast that government forces had no time to do anything but retreat into a few heavily guarded facilities, »

Pandemic Review

31 March 2016 2:34 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I hate making claims like the one you’re about to read, but here goes nothing: Pandemic is the Alien Outpost of 2016 – assuredly my most inconsequential critical comparison. “Alien Outpost” will mean nothing to the hordes who never discovered its existence, and I’m confident that many of you might never have heard of a little first-person thriller called Pandemic until now. But that’s why I’m here! It’s my job to constantly chug away at a never-ending pile of horror’s lesser publicized efforts while insomnia sets in and the voices keep me company.

In this who’s who of “where are they now” talents from Hollywood’s yesteryear, director John Suits dives head-first into a zombie plague that’s a little bit 28 Days Later, a tad Battlefield La (in feel), and reminiscent of [Rec] (not in quality, though). Beginning as any video game would (an introductory tutorial »

Glasgow FrightFest 2016 Review: Pandemic, A Bleak If Derivative Viral Apocalypse

27 February 2016 2:00 PM, PST | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

"Just try to think of it as a game. It'll help." This is the unnamed Gunner (Mekhi Phifer) speaking to his unit's new doctor Lauren Chase (Rachel Nichols), as he describes the best mental attitude to adopt while beating people from their moving armoured bus with a baseball bat. Gunner is likewise modulating the viewer's reception of the film. For Pandemic, directed by John The Scribbler Suits, restricts itself not only to intradiegetic cinematography, but also mostly to the digicams fixed in the four principal characters' helmets, so that what we see closely resembles a first-person shooter (with variable perspectives). As Lauren, Gunner, navigator Denise (Missi Pyle) and driver 'Wheeler' (Alfie Allen) make their way through a virus-ravaged, post-apocalyptic Los Angeles on a mission to rescue the unit...
