43 minutes ago

Marion “Suge” Knight, the former rap mogul who allegedly hit two men with his car in January, is returning to court to try to get his murder charges dismissed. The Associated Press reports that Knight’s Attorney Matt Fletcher filed a motion ahead of the former Death Row Records CEO’s Friday hearing in Los Angeles, arguing that the case should be dismissed because one of the victims, Cle “Bone” Sloan, refused to identify Knight in court. “There is nowhere in this transcript that Mr. Sloan ever identifies Marion Knight, the defendant, as a murderer,” Fletcher wrote. “There is nowhere in the entire transcript. »

Ratings: Charles Manson Drama ‘Aquarius’ Debut Doesn’t Kill Key Demo

49 minutes ago

NBC’s Charles Manson drama “Aquarius” didn’t recruit a strong young demographic following with its Thursday debut, receiving just a 1.0 rating among adults 18-49. However, the show performed pretty well in total viewers, pulling in 5.7 million audience members — indicating and understandable older-skewing audience. NBC topped the night overall by that metric. Fox was able to best NBC in the main demographic by one-tenth of a ratings point, with “Bones” and “Wayward Pines.” ABC finished fourth in primetime, as “500 Questions” concluded without a big bang. Speaking of which, a rerun of CBS’s “Big Bang Theory” was both the top-rated and. »

1 hour ago

And it’s way ahead of “Aloha,” the Bradley Cooper-Emma Stone romantic comedy from Cameron Crowe from Sony, which managed $500,000 in its debut Thursday.

‘Testament of Youth’ Review: Alicia Vikander, Kit Harington Headline a Passionate Pacifist Drama

12 hours ago

Pacifism is extinct as a populist political platform, replaced by the bipartisan and inoffensive talking point of “Support the Troops.” No single film will restore its influence, but the World War I-set “Testament of Youth” makes a passionate and sensible case for it through devastating, melancholy, persevering drama. The can-do idealism and soft-lit romance that begin the film soon abandon us to the cruel terribleness thereafter. Shortly before the assassination of a far-off archduke changes her life completely, aspiring poet Vera Brittain (Alicia Vikander) revels in achieving her life goal: to be admitted to Oxford, where women can attend classes. »

‘Results’ Review: Cobie Smulders, Guy Pearce Lampoon Gym Culture

13 hours ago

Results” begins as a scattershot satire of hyper-intense trainers, but eventually gives way to an unexpectedly sweet romantic comedy. But this droll, intelligent farce is most poignant as a portrait of modern alienation that explores how money, service work and self-improvement leave individuals stranded and alone. The trainer-trainee relationship can be awfully intimate, which is probably what Danny (Kevin Corrigan) hopes for when he signs up for two years of one-on-one sessions — in his house. The disheveled divorcé tells gym owner Trevor (Guy Pearce in his native Aussie accent), “I want to learn how to take a punch,” a »
