The Magicians” went into battle on Wednesday night and pulled out the ultimate weapon: a Broadway musical song.

In the episode, Fillory’s High King Eliot (Hale Appleman) is about to enter into mortal combat with the King of Lauria, who has never been defeated. Eliot’s right-hand magician and partner in every crime imaginable Margo (Summer Bishil) gives him a pep talk and reminisces about how well he did in a production of “Les Miserables.” Inspired by that success, she used magic to force him and others to perform the number “One Day More” from the musical in order to get him pumped up for his duel.

Movie Review – Kong: Skull Island (2017)

9 March 2017 7:10 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kong: Skull Island, 2017

Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

Starring Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John GoodmanJohn C. Reilly, Thomas Mann, Corey Hawkins, John Ortiz, Tian Jing, Toby Kebbell, Jason Mitchell, Shea Whigham, Eugene Cordero, Will Brittain, and Richard Jenkins.

Synopsis:

A team of explorers and soldiers travel to an uncharted island in the Pacific, unaware that they are crossing into the domain of monsters, including the mythic Kong.

By now, it’s a given that Kong: Skull Island is an explosive stop on the road to the hugely tantalizing future prospect of King Kong squaring off against Godzilla in a showdown of metaphorical and literal epic proportions. However, what may surprise some is that this early slice of 2017 blockbuster fare is not some half-assed, get the movie shot and in the can solely to tease the real main event, lifeless exercise in big-budget studio filmmaking.

Criterion Reflections – Short Films of 1968

25 February 2017 10:16 AM, PST | CriterionCast | See recent CriterionCast news »

Last night, at the end of a busy week at work when I was just in the mood to hang out at home and unwind a little, I decided that it was a good time for me to wrap up my viewing of Criterion ’68 by ingesting an assortment of short films that had accumulated, like the last crumbs of cereal at the bottom of the bag, in my chronological checklist of films that I’ve been blogging about over the years. It was a suitable occasion for me to fully immerse myself into what turned out to be a festival of random weirdness. My wife, recovering from a bout with illness, was feeling a bit better but wanted to find a productive use of her time with the resurgence of energy, so she kept herself busy by working on a new quilting project. That left me free to indulge without »

Fox has tapped Zach Dean to adapt its biopic about iconic concert promoter Bill Graham, a year after buying movie rights to the autobiography “Bill Graham: My Life Inside Rock and Out.”

Shawn Levy is producing through his 21 Laps company and has been on the project since last year.
