“The Flash” has firmly established itself as a purveyor of twists, curveballs and game-changing reveals since it premiered, and with four episodes left in the superhero drama’s freshman season, fans can expect plenty of fireworks in the run up to the season finale.
In episode 19, “Who Is Harrison Wells,” Barry (Grant Gustin), Cisco (Carlos Valdes) and Caitlin (Danielle Panabaker) discovered Wells’ (Tom Cavanagh) hidden vault in the bowels of Star Labs — a secret room that contains the Reverse Flash’s yellow suit and a fairly incriminating newspaper article from 2024 that hints at Barry’s fate. Episode 20, titled “The Trap,” picks up right where last week’s installment left off, and needless to say, our heroes have plenty of questions about what they’ve uncovered.
Now that Barry’s worst suspicions about Wells have been confirmed, where does Team Flash go from here? As the CW’s episode description succinctly »

While you were sleeping, Zack Snyder unleashed Jason Momoa’s version of Aquaman upon us. And he ain’t your 1960s punchline about useless powers. With this look, fans shouldn’t be surprised if Momoa ends up with a harpoon hand à la Martin Egeland’s version of the Atlantian King. But hold on a minute. The tagline is “Unite the Seven.” Snyder even hashtagged the phrase on Twitter. Did Warner Bros. accidentally a word? Doubtful. There are indeed seven seas, and Aquaman reigns supreme over them all. But...there are also seven founding Justice League members and the movie Momoa debuts in is called “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.” I see what you did there, “Justice League” marketing machine. It’s looks more and more like “Batman v Superman” is really the Justice League’s origin story. Perhaps with Aquaman taking on the role of mediator to get »

While You Were Peeping: Godet’s Elegy Brimming with Belabored Emotion
With his sophomore directorial effort, Fabienne Godet’s A Place on Earth (Une place sur la Terre) once again places Belgian actor Benoît Poelvoorde in the midst of a doomed romantic entanglement. Surprisingly, the generally comedic thespian excels at these melancholy, brooding types, as evidenced by recent stints in Jean-Pierre Ameris’ Romantics Anonymous (2010) and Benoit Jacquot’s Three Hearts (2014). As an uninspired photographer, Poelvoorde’s equally forlorn here, though he’s on the less dramatic end of the comparable occupationally challenged protagonist featured in Godet’s first feature, Burnt Out (2005). However, the film’s dramatic conflict inevitably ends up feeling a bit forced, the emotionally unstable natures of its romantic leads vaguely administered, which casts an extemporaneous pallor over the script that should leave us feeling as devastated as the roiling soundtrack and sweeping visuals urge.

The 1990′s introduced the world to Quentin Tarantino, saw the creation of the Nc-17 rating, and began the slow call toward fully computer animated films. It began the slow (still slow) movement toward a more diverse industry, with the first African-American director earning an Oscar nomination (John Singleton for “Boyz in the Hood”). And the year after one of the greatest years in the history of film, 1995 came plodding along, trying to keep up. So, for the first definitive list of 2015, we are going to look back 20 years at a year that, at first glance, doesn’t look so hot. It’s ripe with flops, but it’s also full of debuts, trailblazing beginnings, and better films than it gets credit for. But, the caveat still stands: this is not a “best of” list. In fact, there are a lot of bad movies on this list. But, they are movies that made a cultural impact, »

We all saw Kim introduce her friend Sam at the MTV Video Music Awards last summer, but now she’s making sure all of Instagram knows just how tight she is with the Grammy nominee. Sam loves a diva, so of course he’s on board, calling Kim K. a “beautiful human.” Basically, Sam Smith is the newest member of the Kardashian family. Kris Jenner will soon amend her cookbook with recipes from the English countryside and Sam will be singing hooks for Kanye in less than a year. Or maybe he’s on loan while Rob continues to go through his rough time? All will be revealed once we find out how many »
