DC’s Legends of Tomorrow Season 3 Episode 8 Review – ‘Crisis on Earth-x – Part 4’

Jessie Robertson reviews the eighth episode of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow season 3…

Our finale, part 4, has as many highs and lows as The Beast, a local roller coaster. The death of Martin Stein hangs heavy over this episode. Let’s just all stand up and clap for Victor Garber (aka The Professor) as his final scene is one of weight, emotion and superb acting. It was known for a while that he was leaving the show but I always half expected him to find a way to allow Jax to keep the Firestorm powers and just separate him from them (nice try on making him “Spider-Man”, Professor.) But, alas, that was not to be. It’s an emotional scene, and unfortunately, Franz Drameh (Jax) isn’t equipped to handle. He’s definitely emoting, but his performance totally fails for me. The subsequent scenes of the heroes reacting are all un-emotional and dull.

Hellraiser review – Clive Barker's pinhead horror makes its point again

In this blackly comic gorefest, rereleased after 30 years, a couple encounter a horde of hellish demons when they move into a creepy old house

No tears please – it’s a waste of good suffering!” Thirty years on, this rerelease of Clive Barker’s Hellraiser amplifies its mostly intentional black-comic horror.

Clare Higgins gives an entertainingly queenly performance as Julia, who comes back with new husband Larry (Andrew Robinson) to live in his late mother’s creepy old London house, only to find it secretly contains the mangled, zombified body of Larry’s brother – and her former lover – Frank (Sean Chapman), who has sold his soul to netherworldly demons, summoned with an occult antique box.

At one point in the footage, the actress can be heard soothing the child and saying, "There's no reason to cry anymore, right? Here we are together." During the chat, the mother of two...

Philly Woman Throws Her Breasts a Goodbye Party After Cancer Diagnosis: ‘Ta-Ta to My Tatas’
A few months ago, Andy Sealy was doing a breast self-exam when she felt a lump. Then she felt another one. So she scheduled a mammogram and an ultrasound for January.

Doctors ultimately biopsied three tumors they found in both breasts — then called to let her know two of the tumors in her left breast were malignant.

She decided to get both of her breasts removed.

“The doctor said the one tumor is on your aerola and the other takes up a quadrant of your breast so it basically takes up the whole thing,” Sealy, 37, of Philadelphia, tells People. “I said,

Treasury Nominee Steve Mnuchin Blasts Relativity Fraud Claims: ‘Gratuitous and Insulting’

Treasury Nominee Steve Mnuchin Blasts Relativity Fraud Claims: ‘Gratuitous and Insulting’
Treasury Secretary nominee Steve Mnuchin is hitting back against fraud allegations from his Hollywood days. The former show business player and Trump administration hopeful responded to a lawsuit from Rka Film Financing, a lender to the barely-breathing movie company Relativity Studios, which claims the former board member and others misappropriated funds meant for promoting films. “The claims against Steven Mnuchin are the same frivolous claims that were previously rejected by the court. Rka never once spoke with, corresponded with or otherwise dealt with Mr. Mnuchin. Rka’s allegations are preposterous,” Mnuchin spokesperson Barney Keller told TheWrap.

Busan: Korean Director Ryoo Seung-wan Survives Ups and Downs

Busan: Korean Director Ryoo Seung-wan Survives Ups and Downs
Abundantly talented, Ryoo Seung-wan has often had problems with other people’s expectations. After his feature directing debut, 2000 cult hit “Die Bad,” the flop of his second film “No Blood No Tears” led to a period of reflection. He has had other ups and downs too. His current hit, cop comedy actioner “Veteran” represents a welcome rebound after the bloated actioner “Berlin File.” But Ryoo admits to Variety that he is a filmmaker that can’t let go.

Congratulations on “Veteran.”

I didn’t expect it to do so well at the box office. In fact it worries me. My message is about the bad behavior of people in power, and yet my film has sold more tickets (12.5 million) than people who voted for the president. And I’m concerned about the impact on the Korean film industry, where we really need diversity. I want people to see many more

Cj Entertainment, which enjoyed juicy box office success this year with Jk Youn’s nostalgic melodrama “Ode to My Father” and the Ryoo Seung-wan directed action comedy “Veteran,” unveiled its powerhouse slate for 2015-16 at its 20th anniversary bash in Busan Saturday night.

It will release a total of 13 Korean films.

The piece stars Ha Jung-woo (“Assassination”) and Kim Min-hee (“No Tears for the Dead”).

It also has set “Asura,” a crime thriller starring Hwang Jung-min (“Veteran”), who also has a

‘Oldboy’ Director Park Chan-wook Starts Lesbian ‘Fingersmith’ Adaptation

‘Oldboy’ Director Park Chan-wook Starts Lesbian ‘Fingersmith’ Adaptation
Busan, South Korea —“Oldboy” filmmaker Park Chan-wook’s “Fingersmith” adaptation started production near Nagoya, Japan, last week.

A Korean reinterpretation of Sarah Waters’ Victorian-era lesbian novel of the same title, Chan’s movie relocates the scene to Korea and Japan in the 1930s, when Korea was under Japanese occupation. The adaptation is written by Park’s long-term screenwriter Chung Seo-kyung (“Sympathy for Lady Vengeance,” “Thirst”).

Fingersmith” is Park’s first Korean-language directorial piece in six years, since the Cannes-winning vampire film “Thirst” in 2009. In between he made his English-language debut, the ill-fated “Stoker,” in 2013.

Leading roles go to Kim Min-hee (“No Tears for the Dead”) and Kim Tae-ri, with Ha Jung-woo (“Assassination”) the male lead.

The film is co-produced by Park’s Moho Film and producer Lee Yong-seung’s Yong Film. The production budget is set at Krw 11 billion ($9.94 million), excluding P&A.

Other regular Park collaborators onboard include cinematographer Jeong Jeong-hun (“Oldboy,

Rub a dub dub, that's North West in the tub! Kim Kardashian shared an adorable photo on Instagram of her daughter taking a bath, and the almost two-year-old little girl looks elated to soaking up the suds. With soap all over her face and a grin the size of the bath itself, North must've been getting clean by kids' classic "No Tears" shampoo because she looks to be doing everything but crying. "Lolz," mama Kim captioned the pic. Even though we usually see North out and about, dressed her in best outfits or her ballet tutu, it's cute to see little Nori just being a regular kid. But we do have to admit she always looks stylin' in her designer duds. She might have the help of...

Chinese Thriller ‘Silent Witness’ to Get Korean Remake

Chinese Thriller ‘Silent Witness’ to Get Korean Remake
Busan — Chinese crime thriller “Silent Witness” is to be remade in South Korea.

Korean production house Yong Film told Variety that it bought the remake rights to director Fei Xing’s original film. Yong Film said that Jung Ji-woo, director of 2012 Korean film “Eun-gyo,” will take the directorial duty of the film’s Korean version and is currently developing the project.

Oscar-Nominated Film Series: Losers on the Road in the Neverland of California Wineries and Neurotic Peter Pan-ish Males

'Sideways' movie, with Paul Giamatti and Thomas Haden Church 'Sideways' movie review: California winery tour follows conventional road to male maturity With the 1999 Matthew Broderick-Reese Witherspoon vehicle Election, Alexander Payne displayed a flair for satirical comedy the likes of which would have turned Billy Wilder greener (with envy) than the Sideways poster found further below in this commentary. With the 2002 Jack Nicholson star vehicle About Schmidt, Payne demonstrated that his comedic flair could go the way of Wilder's in fluff like Sabrina and Love in the Afternoon: artificial, cutesy, bland.* In Sideways, Payne opted for the safer About Schmidt route – which may explain the film's enormous popularity with critics and audiences alike. For my part, I found his adaptation (with Jim Taylor) of Rex Pickett's novel to be an overlong, moralistic, and thoroughly unconvincing effort. (Warning: This Sideways movie review contains spoilers.
