Those who aren’t familiar with anything but the cute Teen Titans series are in for quite a surprise as the heroes return to their darker roots in Teen Titans: The Judas Contract, which is one of the most incredible efforts from the comics. The feature-length film is inspired by a story arc from the 1984 DC comic, and has an incredible voice cast backing the supremely gritty arc.
In The Judas Contract, the Titans – Beast Boy, Raven, Blue Beetle, Robin, and Nightwing – are led by Starfire, but their newest teammate, Terra, is throwing the groups dynamic out of whack, and the team comes up against Brother Blood, an ancient evil, and Deathstroke is waiting in the wings to cause problems as well.

No matter how many fucks and meth jokes you put in them, they’re still lame—those schmaltzy, nugget-of-non-wisdom life-lesson arcs that middling studio comedies force audiences to endure in exchange for whatever laughs were already in the trailer. Did anyone buy a ticket to Central Intelligence, Office Christmas Party, Sex Tape, or any other randomly picked title because they really wanted to see the characters learn to stand up for themselves, put family and friends first, or get that promotion? Only a masochist would. But the rule still holds that, in broad terms, the mainstream of film comedy consists of indifferently formulaic, atrociously paced family and work dramas in which the characters are always stopping to talk about what just happened. Often, there are jokes, but through a critic’s They Live glasses, they all read as, “Look at the thing. Buy Apple products.” Or, “I am a »

The Jerry Springer Show has been bringing its unique brand of trainwreck TV to sets across the culture for 26 seasons now, cementing its place in history as one of daytime’s biggest success stories.
But if you ask Springer himself, the secret to the show’s longevity is very simple.
“First, it’s stupid,” he told Today in an interview on Wednesday.
The 73-year-old former Mayor of Cincinnati and former news anchor stared his talk show in 1991, where he spent its first two seasons focusing on more serious issues. But by season 3, the more outrageous and salacious guests had proven »

Horror fans have had a lot to be happy about the past few years, with popular indie films like “The Babadook” and “The Witch” breathing new life into the genre. One recent movie in particular, “It Follows,” has been praised for its unique spin on the “stalker” film, but also for how well it channels the spirit of classic ’70s and ’80s horror films. This distinction has never been more apparent than in YouTuber Alessio Marinacci’s video highlighting the similarities of the 2014 film and horror master John Carpenter’s “Halloween.” You can check out the video here.

[This post contains plot details for the first episode of “The Missing” Season 2.]
Starz’s “The Missing” returned for Season 2 with another story about kidnapping — except that in the first few minutes, Alice Webster (Abigail Hardingham), lost for 11 years, stumbles back into the small German town she disappeared from. That is the beginning of a time-shifting story about how resolution does not mitigate loss — and how long-buried traumas can unearth in surprising and terrifying ways.
In quite a genre shift from his role as the Governor in “The Walking Dead,” David Morrissey plays Sam Webster, a captain in the British army whose turn of duty at a German base becomes an exile of bereavement when his daughter Alice goes missing. In the intervening years, Sam and his wife Gemma (Keeley Hawes) have made the town their home, building new lives around their loss. When Alice returns, the bereaved couple have to start over again. Sam in particular is altered — there are burn scars all over one side of his body »

You've probably heard of chaos theory and a thing called the butterfly effect - a concept where the flapping of an insect's wings in a London borough causes a shed to collapse somewhere in the Australian outback. In other words, seemingly incidental events can have a knock-on effect on everything else - like that old board game, Mousetrap, where a ball falling into a bath caused a boot to kick a bucket, which eventually led to the cruel detainment of several rodents.
The concept applies even in the high-stakes, high-energy world of filmmaking, where the success of one type of movie can prompt rival studios to greenlight their own, »

Sheila Hammond (Barrymore) and her husband Joel (played by Timothy Olyphant), are just a pair of standard suburban real estate agents. They live a standard suburban life in a standard suburban home, with their standard suburban 16 year old daughter Abby (played by Liv Hewson).

When a movie hits big out of the blue, it’s unwritten Hollywood law that the imitators aren’t too far behind. That’s why, after American Pie brought Porky’s-esque sex-tinged (late) teen comedies back to prominence in 1999, the box office was flooded with similar fare for years after. The Blair Witch Project, meanwhile, hit out of nowhere, and found footage horror is only now dying away. The late Wes Craven, meanwhile, wryly noted just how quickly Hollywood had cashed in on the success of 1996’s Scream, when spoof Scary Movie popped out the year after.
Going back to 1992, though, and it was the turn of the erotic thriller to enjoy its resurgence. »

One percent. That is the surprising percentage of the world’s 21 million refugees who will resettle in another country after fleeing their war-torn homes. I had to ask the United Nations worker twice. “Just one percent of all refugees?” “Yes, and the number is shrinking.”
I was talking with a Unhcr Field Officer as he was verifying the biometric data of a Syrian family being interviewed for resettlement at the Un’s refugee registration center in Amman, Jordan. The fact that such a small fraction of those displaced people are even identified for »
Viggo Mortensen has just come in under the radar. But that’s what he tends to do.
One of the biggest surprises in Tuesday’s Oscar-nomination rollout was a Best Actor nomination for the 57-year-old star of Captain Fantastic, an indie movie that, unlike the highly acclaimed Manchester by the Sea, has pretty much remained one since its release in July.
Mortensen is best known for his work as strapping, noble Aragorn in the colossal Lord of the Rings movies but, before and since, he has taken on roles in an unpredictable string of well-directed, carefully chosen movies (Eastern Promises, »
Jason from Mnpp here on the eve of Oscar nominations wishing you all a good night's rest tonight - I know how you'll all be tossing and turning with visions of little golden sugar-plum statues dancing in your heads. Until then let's use this week's "Beauty vs Beast" to tackle one of the greatest movies of 2016 which may or may not get a single nomination tomorrow but if you ask me it'd be up for La La level awardage - Yorgos Lanthimos' The Lobster. And I want to further tune in one two of its finest yet totally unsung turns, both of which I maintain are as fine as any in the conversation for Supporting Actor - Ben Whishaw as John the Limping Man, and John C Reilly as Robert the Lisping Man.

Chicago – What is more ordinary than a man alone with his thoughts, and then applying those thoughts to paper in the form of poetry? “Paterson” is a celebration of such ritual, and other dreams in the working class. It never panders, it never makes the “hero” that heroic, but it does challenge him in an ordinary sense, to work it out as meaningful poetics.
This is a quiet and low-keyed film, directed by independent icon Jim Jarmusch (“Broken Flowers”), but it resonates with the power of words and purpose. The main character is a bus driver, but his status in life is not determined by what he does, but how he lives. He is devoted to his wife, who also dreams – not of words, but in the ideal of finding her passion in life. This is a concise character study that fires on emotions and intellectual stimulation, not because »

The couple looked amazing attending August Wilson's Jitney Broadway opening night at Samuel J. Friedman Theater in New York City on Thursday, shaking off the unsettling incident earlier in the day. Teigen, 31, showed off her long legs in a pair of silver trousers and nude heels, while 38-year-old Legend looked sharp in a suit.

Alaskan Bush People is a reality show on The Discover Channel. It is a show about a family who is very unique to say the least. The Brown Family, which consists of Billy Brown, his wife Ami, and their 7 adult children, Matt, Bam Bam, Gabe, Bear, Noah, Snowbird, and Rain, live very far away from civilization. They live in the Copper River Valley, where the temperatures drop down to 60 degrees below zero. The family calls the area that they live in, Browntown, and they often go 6 to 9 months without seeing an outsider. They are so cut

Chrissy Teigen is speaking out.
The 31-year-old model took to Twitter on Thursday to call out a paparazzo who directed racist questions at her and husband John Legend at JFK Airport in New York.
"Paparazii at JFK just asked me 'if we evolved from monkeys, why is John Legend still around?' – and people wonder why celebs lose it in pics," she first tweeted. "I was very kind. Answered cooking questions, then he came with that. F**king disgusting."
"They live for that photo and lawsuit," she continued, responding to a fan who suggested "you should've dragged 'em sis."

Jason from Mnpp here. I probably wouldn't have thought about John Carpenter's 1988 goofy sci-fi classic They Live in relation to politics this year if the film hadn't been dragged kicking and screaming into the conversation by a bunch of Donald Trump's Nazi followers (in my best Carrie Bradshaw voice-over voice: "And so I wondered -- are the terms 'Nazi' and 'Donald Trump Follower' redundant?").
But now that the film has been dragged into the conversation a story about a bunch of elite monsters blinding the populace while they loot the Earth doesn't exactly sound like the world's most far-out science-fiction story these days. So with the Inauguration looming like an orange-haired mushroom cloud before us - and, on a less fatalistic note, with it being John Carpenter's 69th birthday today - let's assume our places.

It’s easy to miss the most telling moment in “Growing Up Coy,” when six-year-old Coy Mathis catches a gentle reporter off-guard with a hug. The question that evoked such affection? “So you want to be able to use the girls’ restroom, like the other little girls?”
The documentary, directed by Eric Juhola (producer of “Broken Heart Land” and “Off The Grid: Life on the Mesa”) and coming to Netflix on January 6th, follows Coy and her family as they challenged a school district in Colorado for Coy’s right to use the girls’ bathroom as a transgender girl. The case made headlines in 2013 when the Colorado Rights Division ruled that Coy had the right to use the girls’ bathroom under the Colorado Anti-Discrimination Act. The language in the ruling went above and beyond, setting a critical early precedent for transgender student rights in a battle that continues today.

Yesterday, The A.V. Club reported that a bunch of wannabe neo-Nazi jagoffs (set those sights high, kids) were hassling director John Carpenter online, insinuating that his 1988 sci-fi allegory was in actuality exposing a Jewish conspiracy. Carpenter tweeted out in response:
They Live is about yuppies and unrestrained capitalism. It has nothing to do with Jewish control of the world, which is slander and a lie.
— John Carpenter (@TheHorrorMaster) January 4, 2017
Now, everything is open to interpretation. Perhaps Carpenter’s tweet was misread. When he stated that while the film has nothing do do with Jewish control of the world, was he actually admitting that there is Jewish New World Order controlling the current events? April Wolfe of L.A. Weekly went straight to the source, disturbing John Carpenter during video game time at home.
“No, that’s bullshit,” responded the 68-year-old director. ““There was somebody on my ...
