Her voice and her talents have brought a tremendous rise to many films throughout her career and she hasn’t expressed a whole lot of interest in retiring any time soon. The number of films she’s been seen versus the number her songs have made an appearance in is the difference between night and day, but no matter if its just her voice or her acting talents she makes almost any film just that much better. 5.

Five Things You Didn’t Know about People of Earth
(Sigh). From the looks of this show one might assume that alien abduction stories are starting to make a comeback. Then you get to watching and you think a little differently. It is about alien abduction and the search for the truth after all, but it’s also about taking the stories of the abducted at face value while still trying to sort out whether or not they are real or if they are just crackpots with a severe need for attention and community. That might be a reasonable explanation if it hadn’t been discovered that the aliens are in fact

Some fans might wonder if she’s got what it takes to step into an X-Men type show, but thus far there is little evidence that she is anything

‘Girlboss’ Canceled After 1 Season at Netflix
Sophia Amoruso, whose life was the inspiration for the series, shared the news in a series of Instagram stories on Saturday.
“So that Netflix series about my life got canceled,” she wrote. “While I’m proud of the work we did, I’m looking forward to controlling my narrative from here on out. It was a good show, and I was privileged to work with incredible talent, but living my life as a caricature was hard even if only for two months. Yes, I can be difficult. No, I’m not a dick. No, someone named Shane never cheated on me. It will be nice to someday tell the story of what’s happened in the last few years. Ppl read the headline, not the correction, I’ve learned.”

Why Tilda Swinton is the World’s Best Actress Right Now
So you might wonder why the title doesn’t say “Meryl Streep”. Well, all personal feelings aside and shoved way to the back, the reason why this is so is simply because Streep is in dire need of sharing the spotlight for once. Too many people seem to think that the woman could play anything from Batman to Bb-8 to a woman from a different race, which would just be wrong anyway. Swinton on the other hand could and has played almost every role she’s been given with a passion that borders on multiple personality syndrome. The actress gets so deep

Turn Washington’s Spies Review: Trading “Blood for Blood”, R.I.P. (Spoiler)
A lot of uneasiness and anticipation riddled this week’s episode of Turn: Washington’s Spies. With a title like “Blood for Blood”, you may have expected a bit more…well…blood. Make no mistake, there was plenty of blood to be had, but the first half of the episode spent time building tension between characters, and the second resolving and letting the tension boil over. Even with a historical deviation or two, the show has never been more tense or exciting than in Season 4. Though he had little to do within the episode, the addition of Owain Yeoman’s masterful Benedict Arnold injected this show

Bollywood movies have been on the rise now for a while. To be honest they’re not bad, some of them are almost like watching American action movies from the 1970’s and 80’s due to their gratuitous use of ridiculous special effects and action sequences that are extremely over the top. While by comparison they might not make as much sense to Americans as a Hollywood film, it’s important to keep in mind that the popularity of any film is usually dependent on the type of exposure it gets, and the perspective of the fans.
