Movie Review – Patriots Day (2016)

13 January 2017 3:40 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Patriots Day, 2016.

Directed by Peter Berg.

Starring Mark Wahlberg, Kevin Bacon, John Goodman, J.K. Simmons, Michelle Monaghan, Christopher O’Shea, Rachel Brosnahan, Alex Wolff, Themo Melikidze, Jimmy O. Yang, Jake Picking, and Melissa Benoist.

Synopsis:

An account of Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis’s actions in the events leading up to the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing and the aftermath, which includes the city-wide manhunt to find the terrorists behind it.

Boston sure does band together in the most touching and strangest of ways. Scene setup: A small army of special forces (along with Boston and Watertown Police Departments) are all posted up around an isolated neighborhood backyard boat which is believed to be the whereabouts of the second marathon bomber’s hiding location, and don’t forget, a middle-aged community woman also on a rooftop with a rifle pointed squarely at the target. It’s certainly an unexpected and equally hilarious sight to behold, »

Extended Promo For Kevin Smith’s Supergirl Episode Arrives

13 January 2017 11:50 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In addition to having some thrilling adventures in the comics, Supergirl looks to kick off the second leg of its sophomore season in style. Thanks to the one and only Kevin Smith serving as the director for the midseason premiere, “Supergirl Lives,” we expect it to be nothing short of amazing.

Just days ago, we were treated to some cool new images from said episode, but this freshly released extended trailer makes the wait for the show’s return ever so hard to endure. Aside from Roulette, whom we already knew would be appearing, the footage confirms the return of Livewire. Not only that, but we can expect to see some Dominator action, and something tells me these aren’t the ones from the DC TV crossover, but rather those unique to Kara’s universe.

10 January 2017 7:28 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

See Full Gallery Here

The first images from the midseason premiere of Supergirl have been revealed today and they’re particularly exciting as for this installment, Kevin Smith is at the helm. The filmmaker has directed two episodes of The Flash, but this marks his first entry into the world of the Girl of Steel in the appropriately titled “Supergirl Lives.” We say that because as you may already know, Smith was hired to pen the screenplay for Superman Lives, one of the many movies starring the iconic DC Comics superhero which never reached the big screen.

For more on what to expect from this episode of Supergirl, here’s the recently released synopsis courtesy of The CW:

Kara (Melissa Benoist) is moved by the story of a missing woman named Izzy (guest star Harley Quinn Smith) and decides to investigate despite Snapper Carr’s (guest star Ian Gomez) order to leave it alone. »

Supergirl has been on hiatus for a little longer than its three sister shows, but thanks to a Monday timeslot, it'll be the first to return from this lengthy winter break come the week of January 23rd. The next episode will take Kara & Mon-El away from Earth to a planet known as Slaver's Moon where the duo will re-encounter the elusive Roulette and if that wasn't enough trouble, they'll also find themselves under the influence of a red sun, which means no superpowers to give them any sort of advantage.  Kevin Smith (Clerks), who already has two episodes of The Flash under his belt, helmed this installment, which is titled "Supergirl Lives." His daughter Harley Quinn Smith (Yoga Hosers) will also guest star during the hour.

Villain Confirmed For The Flash/Supergirl Musical Crossover

9 January 2017 1:49 PM, PST | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

A few weeks ago, I wrote an article on this very website, where after learning that there would be a Flash/Supergirl musical crossover, I speculated that the villain could be none other than the Music Meister. Today this was confirmed by EW when they asked Greg Berlanti, the creator of both shows, about it.

"It is going to be the Music Meister. We're finishing writing the script this weekend. We haven't gone about casting it yet."

Do not underestimate this evildoer, as with the simple power of song and dance, The Music Meister wields a mind and body control power that would rival even Grodd.

This character was specifically created for an episode of the animated series Batman: The Brave And The Bold, and to my knowledge he has never made his way into the books. But hell, if Harley can transition then maybe he can as well. Using his power of song, »

8 January 2017 1:25 PM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Back in August, The CW announced that Supergirl and The Flash would be crossing paths once again this year for a two-part musical crossover which would allow former Glee stars Melissa Benoist and Grant Gustin to flex their singing voices once again.

Speaking at the Television Critics Assocation winter press tour, executive producer Greg Berlanti has provided an update on the crossover, as well as confirming the rumours that the about the villain.

“It is going to be the Music Meister,” said Berlanti. “We’re finishing writing the script this weekend.”

Berlanti was addressed the rumour linking Neil Patrick Harris to the role, given that he voiced the villain in the ‘Mayhem of the Music Meister’ episode of Batman: The Brave and the Bold, stating that: “We haven’t gone about casting it yet. But it’s the right question, though.”

And though Neil Patrick Harris voiced the DC Comics villain in the Batman: The Brave and the Bold animated series — and thus has been speculated/hoped to assume the live-action role — The Music Meister has not yet been cast, Berlanti said.

Read Supergirl Actress Melissa Benoist's Perfectly Diplomatic Comparison Of The Dceu To Dctv

8 January 2017 10:18 AM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

The debate over the hopeful/playful tone of The CW's Dctv universe versus the world-weary cynicism of the Dceu has been a hotly debated topic for years.  However, when Supergirl star actress Melissa Benoist was asked to compare the two, her response was so calculated that perhaps she should consider a post-Hollywood career in politics.   When specifically asked whether the tone of the two separate universes would ever align, the Patriots Day actress responded,  "I think so. Ezra Miller’s Flash is bringing humor and quirkiness, and the DC TV universe has had to grapple with some pretty dark, emotional storylines on Arrow. I do think it’s inevitable that we all start to reflect each other. But I do love how positive and uplifting Supergirl’s character is and I don’t think she will change too drastically from that because in essence, that’s just who she is. »

The Girl Of Steel Visits Another World In Synopsis For Kevin Smith's Episode Of Supergirl

5 January 2017 7:05 PM, PST | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Kevin Smith has done some stellar work in the DC TV Universe, and excitement for his take on Supergirl is at an all-time high as a result. As you can see below, this is clearly going to be a big episode as both the Girl of Steel and Mon-El are transported to a planet with a red sun (leaving them powerless) where returning villain Roulette is clearly having a whale of a time pitting all sorts of aliens against each other.  It doesn't sound like "Supergirl Lives" is a game changer in the same way as Smith's episodes of The Flash, but it should still be fun, especially as this is the first time Kara has encountered a red sun.  Kevin Smith Directs; Roulette Returns — Kara (Melissa Benoist) is moved by the story of a missing woman named Izzy (guest star Harley Quinn Smith) and decides to investigate despite Snapper »

Contest: Chicago, take a trip to Boston for Patriots Day early and for free

3 January 2017 10:00 AM, PST | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

Peter Berg and Mark Wahlberg have become the go-to pair for intense dramas based on real life events, and Patriots Day is no different. In the film, Berg recreates the events surrounding the Boston Marathon Bombing, including the search for the Tsarnaev brothers. Wahlberg’s police officer is a composite character, but J.K. Simmons, Kevin Bacon, John Goodman, Rachel Brosnahan, and Melissa Benoist all play real life figures.

The film takes place in Boston, but if you’re a Chicago resident, you can see the film on January 10 at 7 p.m.. All you have to do is enter your information here. Make sure you get to the AMC River East 21 early, though, as these showings tend to overbook. Patriots Day opens in wide release on January 13. Watch the trailer below.
