As a show right on the line between heightened and silly, this week's Pretty Little Liars felt dangerously close to falling over the edge...
This review contains spoilers.
6.6 No Stone Unturned & 6.7 O, Brother Where Art Thou?
Season six of Pretty Little Liars – the #summerofAnswers – started off with a really interesting exploration of trauma and Ptsd. These episodes, No Stone Unturned and O Brother, Where Art Thou, feature two set-pieces involving an evil racoon and gummy bears laced with marijuana. Never say this show doesn’t deliver.
For a lot of Pretty Little Liars fans, these episodes are the show at its best and most fun. There’s humour and mystery and, most importantly, a couple of answers. For others, those of us who relish the chance to just sit and stare at these broken human beings for 40 minutes each week, they’re not the strongest.

After all this time, shouldn't the Pretty Little Liars girls have learned to be less quick to jump to conclusions?

6.4 Don't Look Now & 6.5 She's No Angel
As the last six years of Pretty Little Liars have unfolded, we've all grown accustomed to a lot of its quirks – the three-episode red herrings, Aria's increasingly avant-garde fashion sense and the fact that all adult men living in Rosewood are inexplicably attracted to teenage girls – but it's one of the show's earliest tropes, the tendency for the girls to jump to conclusions based on very little evidence – that has become actively irritating.
It makes a lot of sense from a narrative perspective – just listen to Scream's explanation of how a slasher flick can and can't exist as long-form storytelling - but, as we approach the actual, real, genuine answer as to A's identity, it's hard to watch Alison Dilaurentis »
The secrets to Charles' past were just blown wide open! For a show that's been known to starve its viewers of information, the Pretty Little Liars episode "Don't Look Now" revealed some very vital pieces of information regarding Charles' history — like the fact that Charles is, indeed, a Dilaurentis sibling and a former patient at Radley. Oh, and as it turns out, he might actually be dead after all? Let's dig in! Will The Oldest Dilaurentis Sibling Please Stand Up? If you were wondering what it was that [...] »

So long as last week's final scene wasn't a total fake-out, then tonight's Pretty Little Liars episode ("Don't Look Now") will likely center around the fact that Jason's (Drew Van Acker) "imaginary" childhood friend was a little more [...] »

On the eve of the premiere of the third season of NBC's"Hannibal," show runner Bryan Fuller has spoken with THR about the new season which boasts not just key new characters but a "dreamlike" quality as he calls it.
It won't be until the fourth episode of the season where we see events directly after last season's finale with much of the cast seemingly left for dead. The premiere on the other hand kicks off eight months later with Hannibal and Bedelia right in the thick of it in Florence. Also by ditching the murder of the week elements, Fuller says it allows us "just to connect the characters and their honest pursuit of Hannibal".
Each of the first seven episodes have a "movie paradigm" as he calls it, with the episode being akin to a famous movie. The first is " a bit of Talented Mr. Ripley" with the »

Here's our pick of 11 films you can't afford to miss the start of.
It takes a hardened soul not to well up watching Carl Fredricksen lose his beloved wife Ellie to a sudden illness in the opening montage of Up.
Not only is it probably the best sequence in the film, but it makes the crotchety Carl immediately sympathetic by showing his softer »

Hollywood needs to get its head examined. The Hollywood Reporter says that StudioCanal wants to revisit Nicolas Roeg's psychosexual horror classic "Don't Look Now" from 1973. The Picture Company's Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman, the coveted duo behind the upcoming "Escape From New York" and "Robin Hood" remakes, are already on the market for a studio home. No writer is attached, but THR reports that "studios are already expressing interest." I can't think of a worse idea. What will it look like, to take one of the most scandalizing (and perfect) art films of the 1970s, and strip it down to PG-13 horror movie fast food? Roeg's British original is famous not only for its jaggedly cut sex scene, with lots of armpit-licking and generously displayed cunnilingus, but also its very-'70s, charmingly dated experimental film aesthetic. It was as if Roeg was discovering the medium for the first time, »

The most recent insult to original storytelling comes back to bite us in the face in the form of Don't Look Now, Nicholas Roeg's 1973 classic, lurid tale of loss and suspense. Expertly crafted and shot, the original adapted a Daphne du Maurier short story, and featured Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie as parents of a drowned little girl in a red raincoat --- as well as a killer dwarf roaming Venice. It also put one of the hottest love scenes in cinematic history on film. Good luck replicating that.This remake was reportedly in development a decade ago, and has just resurfaced. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Don't Look Now, one of those remakes that Really doesn't need remaking --- is once again alive, and...

Don't Look Now is the latest horror classic to be getting a remake.
Nicolas Roeg's atmospheric film focused on a couple grieving the death of their daughter, before meeting a Catholic nun in Venice who claims to be in contact with their child.
The movie is now infamous for its graphic sex scene and shocking ending that made a generation scared of red hoodies.

Oh crikey, where do you start here? Nicolas Roeg's 1973 horror classic, Don't Look Now, is the latest to get the Hollywood remake treatment. Let's just go with that we don't think this news is going to go down very well.
The original film starred Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie, as a couple mourning the death of their daughter. Enter a pair of nuns, one of whom brings them a message - and not a pleasant one - from the afterlife. From such foundations, a masterpiece was constructed, one that very much still holds water today. So, er, it's being remade.
We're getting to a point in Hollywood where no movie really seems safe from the remake possibilities - and that seems to be especially true for the horror genre. As such, we now have news that yet another scary classic is getting redone, with reports saying that a new version of Don't Look Now is currently in development. The Hollywood Reporter has the news on this re-do, noting that the project is in the works from the folks over at Studio Canal. As of now, the project doesn't have any filmmakers attached, but evidently that is part of the strategy. Evidently the conpany wants to find the remake a studio home before they seek out writers to pen the movie. Based on the short story of the same name by Daphne du Maurier (the famed author behind Alfred Hitchcock's The Birds and Rebecca), Don't Look Now tells the story of »
The 1973 landmark horror film Don't Look Now is getting a remake. StudioCanal and The Picture Company’s Alex Heineman and Andrew Rona are shopping around a remake of Nicolas Roeg’s brilliant and deeply unsettling classic. Based on a short story by Daphne du Maurier (Rebecca), the original film starred Donald Sutherland and Julie Christie as a married couple on an extended trip to Venice after the tragic loss of their daughter. When they happen upon a pair of blind sisters, one of whom claims to be clairvoyant and warns of impending doom, they are subject to a series of terrifying events in the winding backroads of the crumbling city. [caption id="attachment_451117" align="alignright" width="344"] Image via British Lion Films[/caption] No writer is currently attached to the project. Per THR, StudioCanal and the producers are taking the same route they did with their remake of Escape from New York - find the studio first »

StudioCanal and The Picture Company are planning a remake of Nicolas Roeg's 1973 atmospheric supernatural thriller classic "Don't Look Now" which often makes many 'top lists' of the best horror films of all time.
The pair move to Venice for the husband's work and to try and rebuild their marriage. They encounter two sisters, one whom claims to be clairvoyant and informs them that their daughter is trying to contact them.
The husband dismisses their claims at first, but he soon starts to experience mysterious sightings himself including what appears to be a small child dressed in the red raincoat that his daughter was wearing the day she died. At the same time, there are reports of a serial killer at large in Venice. »

THR revealed the news of the Don't Look Now remake, stating that Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman of The Picture Company are producing the project. No writer, director, or cast members have been announced, as StudioCanal is looking to first attach the project to a studio before gathering the film's creative team.

While in Venice, they meet two Catholic nuns, one of whom claims to be clairvoyant and is in contact with their daughter in the afterlife. »
