1 hour ago

Star Wars: The Last Jedi” is upon us, and according to critics, the new entry in the franchise is “the real deal” and “a triumph.” “It is one of the best ‘Star Wars’ movies we’ve seen thus far, standing alongside ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ and ‘Revenge of the Sith’ as a visually dazzling and character-driven spectacle which sets itself apart from the blockbuster pack,” Forbes’ Scott Mendelsohn wrote. The Guardian’s Peter Bradshaw said, “‘The Last Jedi’ gives you an explosive sugar rush of spectacle.” TheWrap’s film critic Alonso Duralde wrote in his review, “If having pure fun »

Ratings: ‘Better Late Than Never’ Premiere Wins at 10pm

2 hours ago

Last night, NBC’s “Better Late Than Never” and ABC’s “Great Christmas Light Fight” duked it out in different time slots for the (very unofficial) title of top Monday premiere. A “Bachelor” special leading up to the dating competition’s new season didn’t quite stake much of a claim in the mini-battle. Thanks mostly to “The Voice,” NBC won primetime outright. ABC finished runner-up in the key 18-49 demographic, though CBS was No. 2 among total viewers. NBC was first in ratings with a 1.6 rating/6 share in the advertiser-coveted 18-49 demographic and in total viewers with an average of 8.8 million, »

FCC Commissioner Clowns Chairman Ajit Pai on Twitter: ‘Alternate Plan’

2 hours ago

The Federal Communications Commission is set to vote on pulling back net neutrality later this week, but one member is already publicly railing against chairman Ajit Pai’s proposal on Tuesday. FCC commissioner Mignon Clyburn tweeted her “alternative plan” to save net neutrality, cheekily retitling Pai’s plan from “Restoring Internet Freedom” to “Retaining Internet Freedom.” Clyburn’s updated proposal is brief, cutting out all but 10 words on the Pai’s document’s first page — leaving it with: “After further review of the record, we affirm the 2015 Open Internet Order.” In just 2 days, the @FCC majority will vote to repeal the nation’s #NetNeutrality. »

‘Star Wars: The Last Jedi’ Movie Review: The Thrills Are Strong with This One

3 hours ago

How much you enjoy “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” may hinge on how seriously you take this franchise, and that’s good news for those of us who are casual users and not religious adherents. Writer-director Rian Johnson steps into this ongoing saga with an eye seemingly more aimed at the “Flash Gordon” serials that originally inspired George Lucas than at the terminal self-seriousness that so many fans inflict upon the material. If having pure fun at a “Star Wars” movie is wrong, I don’t want to be right. So for me, “The Last Jedi” falls right behind “The Empire Strikes. »
