1 hour ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Nicholas Flamel features in both the book and the film called ‘Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone’ as Albus Dumbledore’s friend. Therefore, it is easy for those who do not know to assume that he is a fictional character. However, Nicholas Flamel is a real person who worked as a scribe and a manuscript seller and also earned a reputation as an alchemist posthumously. It is believed that Flamel discovered the Philosopher’s Stone which gives the person who possesses it immortality.

The Top Five B-Movie Legends of All-Time

2 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

In case you’re one of those people who asks what B-movies really are, here’s a little insight into that particular subject. They’re basically low-budget highly-commercial films but shouldn’t be confused with art house films. Originally the terminology was used to describe films that were distributed for the purpose of being the lower half of double features, something that was popular in the earlier days of motion pictures. Then, throughout the years, B-movies morphed into genre films like Westerns in the 1930’s then transitioning to Film Noir. In the 1950’s, Sci-fi and horror movies made their takeover. Then, in the 60’s

Legends of Tomorrow: Team Heads to the Circus. Amaya Reveals Secret.

2 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Team Legends may have bitten off more than they could chew on tonight’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow. They head to 1870 to track down an anachronism, a saber-tooth tiger and contain it. The catch? The tiger is a part of P.T. Barnum (guest star Billy Zane)’s circus of unique beings. It was nice having Amaya back on the team again. Her confession about being afraid of losing control of her powers is an intriguing aspect. It’s quite similar to the Hulk and Raven of the Teen Titans where both have to contain the animalistic force within. At least Nate was able

Akura Kurosawa is one of the more prolific directors of an era and his importance has a lot to do with his representation of the Japanese culture. He directed 30 movies in a career spanning 57 years, which might not seem like a lot at this point but was and still is pretty impressive for his era. In truth his movies make it even more impressive since he directed films that were so masterful that a lot of people still remember them fondly today. He also had a style that was not entirely on point with the Japanese culture but

The Flash S4E2 Review: “Mixed Signals”

5 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

When The Flash chose to waste no time in bringing back Barry Allen, it felt like a good move as long as the show didn’t fully ignore the main character’s absence. One of the biggest problems this posed was the show beginning to feel like it had no consequences; on one hand, the show doesn’t feel right without Barry, but on the other hand, The Flash also cannot ignore the decision to stick Barry into the Speed Force for a long period of time. “Mixed Signals” followed up the fourth season premiere with solid steps forward, continuing to navigate how everyone deals with

There Aren’t Enough Rap Songs About Staying Home on a Friday Night and Saving Money

There’s little more than fire and brimstone being hurled about. Forget the insults and mud, now we’re down to straight up siege engines of hatred and vitriol being cast about by politicians and rappers alike. If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, take a look at the special message that rapper Eminem sent to Trump just recently and make your own decisions about his ensuing rant. He might have a few good points and his passion level is up there in the clouds, but wouldn’t it be nice if rappers went back to entertaining us instead of playing politics? I

This is The Short Film that Napoleon Dynamite Was Based Off of

7 hours ago | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I’m still trying to wrap my head around why Napoleon Dynamite was considered such a great movie. Or maybe instead why it was able to generate a following that was nothing less than cult status in some regions. It was unique in a way to be sure but it was also so slow, monotonous, and unfortunately not entirely based off of reality. Maybe that’s the draw, though after watching the film and the clip below I still can’t see it. Is there some quality about the film and the clip that I’m not seeing? Or is it some grand joke

‘Brooklyn Nine-Nine’: This Year’s Halloween Heist Reaffirmed Its Status as One of Broadcast’s Best Comedies

7 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

[Editor’s note: Spoilers for “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” Season 5, Episode 4, “HalloVeen,” follow.]

If you were looking for further proof that “Brooklyn Nine-Nine” is one of the best comedies on television, “HalloVeen” was it. From the cold open of the episode, the show crackled with energy, letting the lighthearted heist competition that’s become a yearly tradition drive the pitch-perfect interactions of the ensemble.

Throw in probably the only good jokes we’re going to hear this fall about “The Handmaid’s Tale” (‘It’s relevant as hell!”) and the unending joy of Captain Holt (Andre Braugher) dismissing a corgi far inferior to his own beloved Cheddar as an “idiot,” and even before the pivotal final minutes this episode was pure joy.

The only disappointment from the actual heist portion of the episode: Andre Braugher saying “cummerbund” is not as funny as Andre Braugher saying “caboodle” during last year’s Halloween heist. (Though “in my belly!” from the opening sequence does lessen the sting to a great extent. »
