Tai Freligh reviews the tenth episode of Heroes Reborn, ‘11:53 to Odessa’…
So this week’s episode of Heroes Reborn was the mid-season finale. It felt a little uneven and not nearly as epic as a finale should feel, but it was decent. There are a few reveals along with new questions which will be sure to frustrate us as we wait until January for the last three episodes. Let’s get to the recap and review!
We pick up with Noah and Malina leaving the ice cream parlor and running into Luke. Luke has had a change of heart and wants to continue to help Malina find Tommy, but Hrg is having none of it and rejects his help. He takes off with Malina and is followed by Luke, who approaches them again when they stop at a gas station and makes his pitch again. And again, he is rejected. »

“‘There is no ‘there’ there.’”
Reconnaissance, the third of Flesh and Bone‘s eight episodes, is as preoccupied with spying, interrogation, and information as its title suggests. The hour of inquest and mystery has its ups and downs, but the strange Hitchockian climax to which it builds is worth the bumpy ride. The dizzying sprint down the apartment building’s staircase, the heart-stopping cut from Bryan sleeping on the couch to Bryan sleeping on the floor beside Claire’s bed, Claire’s fingernails digging into the palm of her hand as blood wells up, Romeo as a stand-in for L. B. Jefferies powerlessly watching horror unfold; it’s a climax given weight by the dull, defeated hopelessness with which Claire makes up the couch and gets Bryan a sandwich. Real horror lives in the mundane, not the fantastical.
The camera remains one of Flesh and Bone‘s strongest players, especially »

Bonnie and Alaric’s ongoing Frankenstein experiment finally bore fruit on Thursday’s Vampire Diaries, though it wasn’t Mr. Saltzman’s dearly departed who returned to the living — at least not at first.

Oscar, the stoner heretic who died (for the second time) at Valerie’s hand last week, was once again made free to run amok in Mystic Falls, turning the beloved town into an all-you-can eat buffet. My personal favorite meal came in the form of a tour bus hoping »

While today is just another Friday for most people, the fine folks at Walt Disney Animation Studios are celebrating their 92nd Anniversary. The studio honors this unconventional milestone with a new video, where Disney animator Eric Goldberg (Aladdin, Hercules) draws a number of the studio's memorable sidekicks from scratch. You can watch as the animator as he draws Baymax from Big Hero 6, Smee from Peter Pan, Olaf from Frozen, Louis from The Princess and the Frog, Flora from Sleeping Beauty, Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio, the Genie from Aladdin and Timothy the mouse from Dumbo.
Pixar is also celebrating a milestone of its own, since next month marks the 20th Anniversary of their first feature film Toy Story, which hit theaters on November 22, 1995. The animation studio also released a retrospective video, which showcases the studio's focus on friendship throughout their vast array of hit movies, such as Toy Story, Ratatouille, »
Today -- October 16, 2015 -- marks the 92nd anniversary of Disney Animation. Time flies! And so do Peter Pan, Dumbo, and several other memorable Disney characters who've kept us (and our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents) company since childhood. Pixar just celebrated 20 years of friendship, and Disney followed with this 92-second video with beautiful clips from 92 years of magic.
We see shots from "Cinderella," "Fantasia," "Snow White," "Alice in Wonderland," "101 Dalmatians," "Aladdin," "Sleeping Beauty," "Beauty and the Beast," "The Lion King," "The Little Mermaid," "Pocahontas," "Pinocchio," and many more, ending with a bit of a heart-tugger from Winnie and Christopher Robin. As Entertainment Weekly noted, it's all set to Thomas Bergensen's gorgeous song "Starchild."

Hide your pups! 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil is getting her own live-action film, aptly entitled Cruella, the Hollywood Reporter confirmed on Monday, Oct. 12. According to the site, Aline Brosh McKenna — who penned The Devil Wears Prada — has been hired to take on the fur coat-obsessed character. (Disney previously tackled Sleeping Beauty's villain, Maleficent, in the 2014 movie of the same name. Angelina Jolie is set to reprise the role in Maleficent 2.) Cruella de Vil first made viewers' skin crawl in Dodie Smith's [...] »
“Pan” was supposed to provide a fresh spin on the oft-told tale of the boy who could fly, but the pricey epic remained earthbound last weekend, opening to an anemic $15.3 million.
That disastrous start guarantees it will rank alongside other costly misses like “Jupiter Ascending” and “Tomorrowland” as one of the year’s biggest box office disasters. With an $150 million price tag, Warner Bros. could lose tens of millions on a film it hoped would kick off a new fantasy franchise.
When the dust settles and studio executives comb through the wreckage for clues about what doomed the adventure film, it appears that it will suffer from two fatal and seemingly contradictory flaws. “Pan” was both overly formulaic and too wild a deviation from J.M. Barrie’s beloved children’s classic to succeed.
The film’s narrative thrust — its “chosen one” story about a savior meant to liberate a people »

As Disney toils to update its extensive library of animated classics with a huge slate of reimaginings, reboots and origin stories, the studio has zeroed in one of its most famous (and fur-loving) villainesses for a live-action origin story: 101 Dalmatians‘ Cruella de Vil.
Saving Mr. Banks screenwriter Kelly Marcel, best known for penning Fifty Shades of Grey, is attached to write Cruella for Disney, which views the origin pic as a priority and is fast-tracking it as such. Marcel will collaborate with Steve Zissis, the co-creator of HBO’s Togetherness, on the story. Aline Brosh McKenna (The Devil Wears Prada) previously worked on a version of the script.
Cruella de Vil, who appeared in both the 1961 animated original and its 2003 direct-to-video sequel, is one of Disney’s most widely recognizable villains, from her ostentatious fashion to her distinctive red-and-black automobile, so perhaps it shouldn’t come as much of a »

You've heard this before, but the newest bad guys on The Vampire Diaries are really bad. Like, Really bad. You thought Kai was bad for murdering a pregnant woman on her wedding day and binding Elena and Bonnie together in a Sleeping Beauty spell? That's nothing compared to the Heretics, who are taking over Mystic Falls (and are likely the cause of the future dystopian mess we saw in the flash-forward at the end of season six). "We're pretty bad," confesses Elizabeth Blackmore, who plays Heretic ringleader (and the right-hand woman of Lily, Stefan and Damon's mother) Valerie. But it's not like there's no reason for their discontent. "Look, we're figuring out how to adjust to the »
Strictly Come Dancing is doing a lot of good for the dance world, choreographer Matthew Bourne has claimed.
Speaking at the Cheltenham Literature Festival, Bourne questioned whether dancers should be "snobby" towards the BBC One show, considering how it has helped turn everyone into "critics".
"The dance world can be a bit snobby about things as we know, and Strictly's maybe one of them. What Strictly's done is make everyone into critics to a certain extent, because we all look and analyse the dances.
"But in a good way, because also what it does do is when someone is praised, we understand why this was better than last week, what they've gained."
Bourne has worked on productions including Sleeping Beauty and Swan Lake.
There are several Disney-themed Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailers on YouTube, but this one by PistolShrimps is the probably best and funniest one I've seen yet. The mashup trailer features quite a few classic Disney characters and settings, like the palace from Aladdin, Maleficent in her dragon form from Sleeping Beauty and Frozen's Olaf, but I'm not going to tell you how they are...

The Spiritual Prudence Sitting on a bench in the garden of my house I stared at the infinite blue sky over my head. Hawks flew over me so high that sometimes I barely could see them—discounting the fact that I need to change my glasses prescription. Sometimes I could see their wings; sometimes I could see nothing but a small black point in the blue sky. Massive white clouds appeared. They had no shadow for the sun hit them with its light frontally; because of that, they appeared infinite cotton balls, immaculately white, like they were drawn by a child.This prosaic and innocent sight remind me of the feelings that I experienced when I watched Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella. Many filmmakers have shot the sky and the clouds. Many filmmakers have shot birds such as hawks and eagles flying rapidly over the earth (and one of them was »

What if, instead of in an ice palace, Frozen's Queen Elsa lived Under the Sea? Out of the question? Not in Dylan Bonner's world! The Disney-obsessed illustrator quite literally took to the drawing boards to imagine a world where Disney's most beloved princesses swapped story lines—not to mention their iconic wardrobes. That means that Elsa's now rocking the Little Mermaid's fin (though hers is a shimmering blue, with an icicle-shaped flapper!). As for the other gals, Sleeping Beauty is modeling Jasmine's aqua crop top, Snow White is spinning [...] »
It may be too soon for Swan Queen shippers to rejoice, but at least the "Once Upon a Time" showrunners have promised some kind of Lgbt relationship in Season 5. The new season starts this Sunday, September 27, and after revealing Mulan (Jamie Chung) would be returning, Entertainment Weekly asked The Powers That Be if Season 5 would delve into Mulan's feelings for Sleeping Beauty (Sarah Bolger). Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz kept things vague when answering, teasing some potential new romances ahead.
"We know that community have been big supporters of the show and we would love to be able to tell a love story that reflects that," Kitsis said. Horowitz added to EW, "We want the show to reflect the world as it is now. Whether that's going to be with any particular character, we're not going to say." They emphasized that it's something that they will do this year, in »

Illustrator and animator Andrew Tarusov has seen his Disney Princess Pin-Up series go viral, with his provocative '50s-style poster recreations reimagining Snow White, Sleeping Beauty, Elsa and company and... well, you'll see.
The trouble is, after Disney Princesses in Game of Thrones, Disney Princesses with no make-up on and Disney Princesses with the puppet from Saw's face - no, really - we may have reached peak Disney Princess.

Let’s say three fairy tale princesses walk into a bar. After a few belts, they figure out they all are engaged to Prince Charming. The same Prince Charming. Ok, the bar scenario is make-believe, but the movie is real — and enter Wilmer Valderrama, who will voice the male lead in the animated musical Charming. He joins Demi Lovato as Lenore, Ashley Tisdale as Cinderella, Avril Lavigne as Snow White and Chinese pop star G.E.M. as Sleeping Beauty in the pic from… »
