‘Legion 1×08′ Review

3 April 2017 8:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart, Mackenzie Gray, Scott Lawrence, Katie Aselton, Tatyana Forrest, Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin, Amber Midthunder | Created by Noah Hawley

With the way last week’s Legion ended, there was a feeling that this finale couldn’t live up to what we’d already seen. Thankfully, we can trust Legion to deliver where it matters, and that includes a hint of what is to come in season 2.

With Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) now restrained within David’s (Dan Stevens) head, the next big problem is the return of Division 3 and Clark (Hamish Linklater), the interrogator from the first episode. Hardly in a position of power, will he be forced to work with David to handle the danger held within his mind?

It isn’t a surprise really that David handles Division 3 so easy, but what is interesting is that we get to see some »

‘Legion’ Concludes Its First Season an Open (Comic) Book

30 March 2017 10:58 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

Last night’s finale literally drove off into the unknown.

It’s not the best comic book adaptation of all time, nor is it a perfect superhero screen story, but Legion might be the greatest attempt to produce something of this genre for actual grown ups. As its own source material (Marvel’s X-Men comics) also leads the new trend toward R-rated superhero movie fare, the FX series reminds us that swear words and graphic violence and nudity don’t make something more suited to adults. That would be smart storytelling, which is Legion’s currency.

It’s complicated, though, because the show is, at its heart, still just a silly comic book tale of super-powered mutants and weird science and often cartoonish action. But it’s intelligently structured, challenging its audience mentally as it takes us literally into the minds of its characters. Sometimes plots are made more complex like this in order to hide flaws »

5 Things We Learned From 'Legion,' Season 1

30 March 2017 6:19 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Now that its first season has wrapped, FX's Legion has to go down as the most audacious superhero show that any big-time TV network has ever attempted – which makes sense, given that it featured a character who's one of the oddest in the history of the X-Men comics. A scarily strong telekinetic mutant, David "Legion" Haller (played by Dan Stevens) has trouble distinguishing between his ability to read minds and the "hearing voices in your head" strain of mental illness. So even in the series' season finale, when David was »

Legion: 13 questions we have after the season 1 finale

Rob Leane Mar 31, 2017

Legion’s finale was just as barmy as we’ve come to expect. Here are some questions, and our attempts to answer them. Spoilers...

This feature contains spoilers for the Legion finale.

Legion season one has come to an end, and as you probably could’ve predicted, the finale was a bit of a bamboozling experience. Since season two has already been confirmed, there was no need here for anything to be properly wrapped up.

Instead, in keeping with the show’s mind-bending M.O., we were left with a lot of questions and not many answers when the credits rolled on episode »

Legion episode 8 review: Chapter Eight

David faces the Shadow King in the epic season finale of Legion. Read our review here...

This review contains spoilers.

See related  James Moran interview: do screenwriters get short shrift?

Noah Hawley might have superpowers. After successfully shepherding the adaptation of a beloved film by perhaps the most accomplished and eclectic team of filmmakers from the past thirty years, he decided to tackle a C-list X-Men property. Just like Fargo, the comic character Legion comes with its own baggage and a fiercely devoted fan base that would be ready to go berserk like Wolverine if not handled with care. Factor in a superhero entertainment landscape that’s nearly been milked dry of original takes, and the prospect of creating a new X-Men adjacent TV series seems daunting. Yet Hawley was able to create a show that is spellbinding, mind-bending, and visually inventive, using the fragile mental state »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for the “Legion” Season 1 finale, Episode 8, “Chapter 8.”]

In the aftermath of the Season 1 finale of “Legion,” fans can rejoice because showrunner Noah Hawley already has a premiere date planned for Season 2 of the surrealist superhero show. Currently, Hawley’s goal is to have 10 episodes for Season 2, with the same 2018 premiere date as Season 1.

With a surprise ending, and an even more surprising mid-credits scene (props to the Marvel fans who stuck it out), a lot of questions were left to delve into in the second season. In a joint call with showrunner Noah Hawley and other reporters, a few things were cleared up looking back on Season 1, with exciting ruminations on what to look for in the not-so-far-off Season 2.

‘Legion’ Finale Review: Noah Hawley Goes Full Marvel Without Losing What Makes This Series Revolutionary

29 March 2017 8:10 PM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s Note: The following review contains spoilers for the “Legion” Season 1 finale, Episode 8, “Chapter 8.”]

Let me first say this: If you stopped watching “Legion” as soon as the credits ran, start it back up and keep going. There’s a scene midway through that establishes one helluva cliffhanger compared to Farouk driving out of the woods: David and Syd stand outside on the Summerland deck, looking out at the night sky, when a little robotic orb appears floating in front of them. “Is that one of Cary’s?” David asks, right before he’s scanned and sucked inside the Magic 8-Ball-lookin’ device. Syd runs inside for help as David screams…and that’s how Season 1 ends.

Now then, back to the faux ending: After Aubrey Plaza’s performance as Farouk — a.k.a. The Shadow King, a.a.k.a., That Big Fat Thing With Yellow Eyes, a.a.a.k.a. The Primary Antagonist of Season 1 Who Was Finally Expelled From David’s »

Legion Boss on the Finale's Post-Credits 'Tease,' David's Famous Dad and What's in Store for Season 2

29 March 2017 8:10 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Warning: The following contains spoilers for Wednesday’s Legion season finale. 

Legion‘s mutant hero David finally got rid of the monster that’s been torturing him since childhood and took full control of his powers… but don’t expect him to save the world anytime soon.

In Wednesday’s action-packed season finale, David — with the help of Cary’s makeshift halo device — fought off an ambush from Division 3 and finally extracted the evil parasite known as the Shadow King from his brain. But the parasite (in the form of Lenny) simply attached itself to Melanie’s unfrozen hubby Oliver, »

‘Legion: 1×07′ Review

Stars: Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart, Mackenzie Gray, Scott Lawrence, Katie Aselton, Tatyana Forrest, Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin, Amber Midthunder | Created by Noah Hawley

Legion has been good at keeping its secrets, sometimes to an annoying level. Now though as we reach the end of the first season we come to the episode that provides most of the answers, setting us up for what appears to be an explosive finale.

With David (Dan Stevens) trapped deep in his mind, Lenny (Aubrey Plaza) is upping the stakes on taking over his body. With Lenny’s true identity finally revealed, Cary (Bill Irwin) and Oliver Bird (Jemaine Clement) discuss how to defeat the new enemy while Syd (Rachel Keller) works to free the rest of the group, including David before it is too late.

Legion Season 1 Episode 7 Review – ‘Chapter Seven’

23 March 2017 4:25 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Rachel Bellwoar reviews the seventh episode of Legion

Thinking back on when Legion started, how is it that we’ve reached a point in the show where we can say ‘we get it already. Enough with the clarification?’ Syd interrupts Cary’s explanation of the plan because she figured it out for herself. A lot of ‘Chapter 7’ could be interrupted this way and it’s as close as the show’s come to spinning wheels. Legion is making sense. That’s an achievement!

A comedic achievement, too. Where many penultimate episodes go the dramatic route, Legion‘s warms up with Flight of the ConchordsJemaine Clement, and gets a kick out of using Dan Stevens’ British accent to remind Downton Abbey fans they haven’t forgiven him. With Lenny in control and David restricted to a coffin space in his head, it’s not the outward makings of a comedy, »

Legion Recap: Out, Patient!

22 March 2017 8:03 PM, PDT | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Need to catch up? Check out the previous Legion recap here.

Good news, everyone! This week’s Legion cleared up a lot about what’s really going on in David’s head — and also set the stage for a guns-blazing showdown in next week’s finale.

Things look pretty bad at the start: Kerry is still being chased by that creep Walter through the halls of Clockworks, while Lenny interrogates Nurse Amy about the day her family adopted David as a baby. (“What did he do with it?” she demands to know — “it” being a metal X insignia, it looks like. »

Blu-ray Review – Moana (2016)

20 March 2017 2:10 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Moana, 2016.

Directed by Ron Clements and John Musker.

Featuring the voice talents of Auli’I Cravalho, Dwayne Johnson, Rachel House, Temuera Morrison, Jemaine Clement, Nicole Scherzinger, and Alan Tudyk.

Synopsis:

Moana arrives on Blu-ray, as well as on DVD (there’s a code for a digital copy too). It’s an enjoyable movie, and the bonus features make this is a worthwhile purchase for fans.

While it might be easy to dismiss a movie like Disney’s Moana as just another tired adventure story featuring a young girl going against what her society has taught her, it’s still a story with heart, one that pays homage to the culture it displays without being patronizing.

Moana’s eponymous heroine was chosen as a little girl to possess an ancient stone that was a powerful symbol for her people many years ago. It was lost to the sea and she desires »

Will There Ever Be A Game Like Rick And Morty’s “Roy: A Life Well Lived?”

10 March 2017 3:30 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Every Rick and Morty fan remembers the awesome episode Mortynight Run. Whether it be for Krombopulos Michael, the assassin, ‘Fart’ played by Jemaine Clement, the day care for specifically Jerry’s, or the awesome arcade, Blips and Chitz, the episode is most certainly a fan favorite for multiple reasons. However, one of the most iconic and hilarious moments of the episode happens when Morty puts on a Vr headset and lives the full life of a man named Roy competing to see how long he lives. When Rick goes to do the same thing, we see the true potential of Rick’s

Need to catch up? Check out the previous Legion recap here.

We’re more than halfway through this first season of Legion now, and we’re starting to understand how David’s mutant mind works (and doesn’t work). But this week’s episode threw a few new curveballs at us… including a truly Wtf moment at the end that threatened to take us all the way back to square one.

David and Syd bring a wounded Kerry back to Summerland so Cary can patch up his bodymate. And David has a newfound confidence — you could even call it arrogance — after rescuing Syd. »

‘Legion 1×04′ Review

Stars: Dan Stevens, Rachel Keller, Aubrey Plaza, Jean Smart, Mackenzie Gray, Scott Lawrence, Katie Aselton, Tatyana Forrest, Jeremie Harris, Bill Irwin, Amber Midthunder | Created by Noah Hawley

If there is one thing we know about David (Dan Stevens) it is that he is an enigma, and Legion is taking its time in revealing the true answer. With him seemingly out of action though, this week we get to see the rest of the team search for answers.

While David is having an out-of-body experience and meeting Dr. Bird’s (Jean Smart) husband Oliver (Jemaine Clement), the rest of the group go on a road trip to find out the truth behind David. Finding out a darker side to his past though, it isn’t long before The Eye (Mackenzie Gray) catches up with them.

It seems each week I’m saying that this is the latest episode is the best so far, »

New to Streaming: ‘One More Time With Feeling,’ ‘Memento,’ ‘Frailty,’ and More

3 March 2017 9:30 AM, PST | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.

Catfight (Onur Tukel)

Who knew that one of the year’s most potent representations of America’s addiction to abrasive conflict would be Anne Heche and Sandra Oh beating each other to a pulp? Onur Tukel’s Catfight is an unabashedly silly and political film, but it’s also a funny one, with its two lead actresses literally and figuratively hurling themselves into their roles. Heche and Oh play »
