Mama June gets totally rumbled by her fitness coach Kenya on this week’s From Not to Hot — after hiding a secret stash of ice cream and chocolates to gorge on so she can avoid her diet. Kenya is so furious when he finds the horde of sweet treats that he storms out, shoving the ice cream tubs in Honey Boo Boo’s lap saying: “If you don’t care, I don’t care either. I can’t be more invested in this thing than you. This is your life.” He also tells the camera: “It’s not what I found that disappoints me, it’s that...read more »

Exclusive: Mama June Body Shamed on Date for Dropping Too Much Weight 'In the Upper Area' -- Watch
June's radical weight loss journey has taken her from 352 pounds to a size 4, as documented by the show, but she's faced her fair share of pitfalls.
As on-the-nose cinematic warnings go, This Is Your Death is like a bright-red clown schnoz. Giancarlo Esposito directs a reality show gone suicidal, but it’s all with positive intent. Writers Noah Pink and Kenny Yakkel mean to affirm life, not death. Society is too obsessed with garbage “reality” shows and social white noise, corrupted by The Bachelor (women pitted like catty gladiators) and warped programming. Success is now monitored by viral appeal. Ex-con models who post slutty pictures 24/7 amass 2.5 million followers, while the youngest college graduate *ever* is known only by a few thousand. Esposito’s response to all this digital rot? Simple: turn it off.
Josh Duhamel stars as television host Adam Rogers, who becomes a national hero after saving one of his Married To A Millionaire contestants during an unexpected murder/suicide finale. Rogers’ network positions him as a hero, but that doesn’t cleanse the blood from his own hands. »

Would you watch a reality show in which contestants killed themselves live on air? The screenwriters of “This Is Your Death” think you would, and they’re deeply disappointed in you. And so, out of deep concern for both your entertainment and enlightenment, they have written a dark social satire — serviceably directed by “Breaking Bad” baddie Giancarlo Esposito — in which they can have their cake, while you eat it, too. That means theatrical audiences (of whom there will be few) will have the chance to tsk-tsk as “real people” drown, shoot, electrocute, and otherwise off themselves, only to have the movie turn around and tsk-tsk them back for watching.
Those old enough to have lived through the first Golden Age of Television will recognize the pun in the film’s title — a riff on 1950s spirit-lifter “This Is Your Life” — while also remembering a time when even standard small-screen programming »

Combat movies fascinate this reviewer — if you look at the Savant review index you’ll see that I review practically every war picture of note that I can get my hands on. But brace yourself — I become huffy when I see themes of patriotism and faith used to deliver dicey messages.
Mel Gibson’s big, slick WW2 combat film Hacksaw Ridge tells the truly inspiring story of combat medic Desmond Doss, the first conscientious objector to receive the Medal of Honor and the only one to »

David Rossi, profiling god.
That's the central theme of Criminal Minds Season 12 Episode 9.
Oh yeah, the Bau also makes some progress on the escaped serial-killer front.
The occasion this episode is the FBI's brightest young minds coming together to learn from the agency elder.
Or, to put it another way, "The Art of Psychological War" by David Rossi.
It was fun to see scenarios suggested by the seminar participants being acted out by the Bau members, at least in animation, as Rossi gruffly corrects them.
It's understandable that Rossi is tense.
First, it's his birthday, and he's not getting any younger. Second, every year serial killer Tommy Yates gives him a present: the name and location of one of his many kills.
To further complicate things, Yates is one of the few escaped serial killers still on the loose. So to taunt Rossi further, he's feeding him the location of fresh, »
