Review: John Wick: Chapter Two

This is the Pure Movies review of John Wick: Chapter Two, directed by Chad Stahelski and starring Keanu Reeves, Common, Riccardo Scamarcio, Laurence Fishburne, Ruby Rose, Bridget Moynahan, Lance Reddick, Franco Nero, with John Leguizamo, and Ian McShane. Reviewed by Danny Smith for Pure Movies. On the face of it the first John Wick looked like another throwaway action B-movie but it sure proved us wrong. Keanu Reeves played the titular character in the stylish action thriller; a famous assassin grieving for his dead wife and being rudely interrupted by his past coming back to haunt him. It was a surprising hit for Reeves and one of his best action films since The Matrix. It could have quite easily been left as a stand-alone but nowadays with any successful action film comes a sequel and, ultimately, a trilogy. In this case that’s not a bad thing.

Since the medium’s infancy, viewers have enjoyed sharing holidays with their favourite television characters. We grow invested in our friends on screen over the years; spending Christmas with them is a rite of passage, a chance for us to share tradition from our world with the fictional ones we see on screen. Some shows embrace the season wholeheartedly, characters in good spirits and enjoying the trappings of the season; others skew a little darker, bringing the more oppressive, burdensome side of the holidays to life. Either way, Christmas episodes tend to demonstrate the strengths of our favourite series, and it’s long been a festive ritual of mine to wheel out old DVD sets and settle back for a few favourites during December.

Benefits Street: immigration episode likely to spark fresh Twitter outrage

Channel 4 urges public to judge on entire series as second episode offers a largely positive portrait of Romanian immigrants

Warning: this preview of episode two contains spoilers

Despite a scene in which the camera crew is attacked by a man wielding a hammer, the second episode of Channel 4's controversial documentary series Benefits Street is a more sympathetic portrayal than last week's opener – but is still likely to prompt further Twitter outrage.

Immigration is the focus of the second of the five-part series about James Turner Street in Birmingham where, according to Channel 4, most of the residents claim benefits and more than half the homes are inhabited by someone who was born overseas.

Episode two zeroes in on number 151 which plays host, first to a family of Romanian Gypsies including a husband and his 15-year-old wife ("This scares people because she is a minor. In my country

Benefits Street draws sightseers and media to Birmingham neighbourhood

Channel 4 has been accused of exploiting contributors and pandering to prejudices about claimants with reality show

Dave Perkins and Lee Wheeler were on their way from Northampton to Wolverhampton delivering paint. When they realised they weren't too far from James Turner Street – which has been rebranded Benefits Street for the hugely controversial Channel 4 documentary – they couldn't resist making a detour to pose for pictures in front of the sign.

"I was born in the hospital down the road," said Perkins, "but luckily I got away. As far as I can see the programme's a fair portrayal of what is going on. There's a lot of people trying to get away with not working and just living on the state."

Roofers Ben and Seth were the next sightseers to park their white van on the corner of the Birmingham street, one of the most deprived in the UK, and snap pictures of each other.

Comic-Con: Family Guy Panel Recap; 12th Season to Include Peter/Quagmire Folk Band, a Griffin Family Member Being Killed Off, and a Simpsons Crossover

Among the four back-to-back animated comedy panels on Saturday at Comic-Con, one of the most fan frenzied was definitely the Family Guy panel. Mastermind Seth MacFarlane wasn’t on hand for the panel, but sent a nice but barb-wired video for the fans. Members of the panel moderated by Mike Schneider of TV Guide were Seth Green, Alex Borstein, Patrick Warburton, Mike Henry, and EPs Steve Callahan, Rich Appell, and Danny Smith. Despite having been on the air for many years now, and going through cancellations and resurrections unseen by any other television show, Family Guy still plans on surprising their audience with laughs and oddities in the upcoming season. The clip reel they showed had some solid laughs in it, and fans at the panel reacted well and lined for a medley of questions. Hit the jump for highlights. One member of the Griffin family will get killed off

Comic-Con 2013: 'Family Guy' Season 12 guest stars include Ashton Kutcher and Liam Neeson

As the lights dim for the "Family Guy" panel in San Diego Comic-Con's large Ballroom 20, a video plays in which show creator Seth MacFarlane apologizes to fans for not being there "shaking a thousand strange hands and being coughed on."

MacFarlane's presence was sorely missed, as was Mila Kunis', but there was still plenty of talent on hand. Executive producers and showrunners Steve Callaghan and Rich Appel took the stage along with executive producer Danny Smith and actors Mike Henry (Cleveland Brown), Patrick Warburton (Joe Swanson), Alex Borstein (Lois Griffin), and Seth Green (Chris Griffin).

Callaghan starts the panel with a bang by revealing that one of the Griffins will be killed and replaced with a new character in Season 12. "It could be anyone, any one of our six main cast," he adds. It did not seem like he was joking, and the crowd didn't quite know what to think.

'The Bachelor's' Lindsay Yenter nude photos being shopped

  • Pop2it
Lindsay Yenter may be getting a diamond ring from 'The Bachelor's' resident hottie Sean Lowe, but someone claiming to be her ex is looking to make her new life difficult.

The website The Dirty, which specializes in posting photos reality stars probably never wanted you to see, received an email from a person going by the name of Danny Smith.

"Smith" introduces himself as someone who used to date Yenter and writes, "I have a bunch of pictures of her naked that would drive a ton of traffic to your site. If you are interested let me know and we can talk details on this."

The site administrator posted a copy of the email, along with a message back to Danny asking, "What do I have to do for a call back?? I'm guessing I was outbid?" So perhaps another site bought the pics, or Lindsay got a hold of the guy.

Family Guy: Back To The Multiverse Is Finally Available

After facing more delays than a flustered and flaccid lover, Family Guy: Back to the Multiverse is finally seeing the light of day. Fans of the series can pick up the newest game in the series today for both Xbox 360 and the Playstation 3. It’s no secret that developer Heavy Iron Studios has had issues pushing this one out the door, but here’s to hoping that quality and heapings of multiplayer goodness can make up for the wait.

Gamers can look forward to jumping back into the infamous town of Quahog, taking control of either Stewie or Brian Griffin as they travel through various universes in the Multiverse. There’s also co-op and competitive multiplayer to keep us coming back for more, along with a handful of challenge levels and extra playable characters. But why take it from me?

'Family Guy' Goes On Tour

'Family Guy' Goes On Tour
Providence, R.I. — Quahog, R.I., the fictional hometown of Peter Griffin and his dysfunctional "Family Guy" relatives, is coming to life.

The show will meld with reality this weekend when a local tourism council sponsors an all-day bus tour highlighting the Rhode Island institutions featured – for better or worse – on the Fox network's hit series.

Fans will get to visit the bar in Johnston known as The Drunken Clam, a "Family Guy" neighborhood haunt, and drive past a downtown Providence skyscraper off which the often clueless, almost always politically incorrect character jumps in one episode because he's "immortal."

The show, created by Seth MacFarlane, who attended the Rhode Island School of Design, pretty accurately depicts a slew of real-life Rhode Island places, including the iconic Van Wickle Gates at Brown University and the Breakers mansion in Newport. It takes generous liberties with others.

And that's part of the entertainment.
