Death Note Poster Gives Us Our First Look At Ryuk The Shinigami

Netflix certainly has their fingers in a lot of interesting pots. The past few years has seen them absolutely dominate the television series front. With original series like House of Cards, and Marvel productions like Luke Cage, they’ve proven that they can bring as riveting of dramas to the small screen as both standard networks and pay cable channels. With that territory now claimed, and their flag in the ground, they’ve also been hard at work at feature films.

Thus far, the success on that one has been less than their TV stuff, with films like War Machine having more of a mixed reception than they’d hope for. What’s more, they’re still working at getting their work noticed by the Oscars. But don’t think that Netflix is only interested in the awards, they’re also interested in more niche genre films like the upcoming Death Note.

Cannes Film Review: ‘The Merciless’

Cannes Film Review: ‘The Merciless’
Armed to the hilt with double-, triple- and quadruple-crossings between gangsters, moles and cops, “The Merciless” tries to be the whole “Infernal Affairs” trilogy rolled into one movie. A largely generic crime thriller in which a ruthless gangster and his protege fight for dominance in and out of prison, the third film by South Korean director Byung Sung-hyun barrels forth with riotous energy, but two-thirds into the picture, the switcheroos get so ridiculous one eventually stops caring about any character. This is a shame, as the two leads, Sul Kang-gul and Yim Si-wan, are flamboyantly compelling.

Still, the stylized production and stomach-churning violence are tailor-made for Asian genre fans, making the film an easy sell abroad. Although a controversy surrounding the helmer’s provocative tweets has hurt domestic box office, the movie has already presold to more than 110 territories worldwide.

A prologue introduces the formidable protagonist, Jae-ho (Sul, “Oasis,” “Silmido

Emmy Race Gets Topical This Year as Dramas Double Down on Reality

Emmy Race Gets Topical This Year as Dramas Double Down on Reality
Escapism dominates at multiplexes. But on the small screen, dramas are channeling the zeitgeist in increasingly novelistic ways.

“The Handmaid’s Tale,” “Mr. Robot” and “The Americans” have all tapped into unease about government activity, joining “Homeland” and “House of Cards” in that preoccupation, while “Orange Is the New Black” and “This Is Us” tackle social issues head-on.

Even “The Crown,” a period drama rife with political intrigue surrounding Queen Elizabeth II’s ascendancy to the throne decades ago, has added resonance in the deeply politicized and sexually regressive Trump era. “Underground,” is based in the 19th century, but doesn’t seem dated when viewed against the backdrop of Black Lives Matter protests.

Thanks to these shows, and the fact that HBO heavyweight “Game of Thrones” is out of the running due to its production schedule, the Emmy race could get a lot more topical this year. As the late-night ratings attest, substance

Inside Marvel Studios: Secrets About 'Black Panther,' 'Captain Marvel,' 'Thor: Ragnarok' & More!

It's a risk letting anyone see how the superhero sausage is made, but that's exactly what Marvel Studios did when they opened the doors of their offices to a pack of reporters on Monday night for an Open House. The itinerary for the event was shrouded in secrecy — Marvel's usual M.O. when it comes to anything connected to their Cinematic Universe — so each room on the tour contained some new surprise, unfolding like a game of Clue where the players are mostly actors named Chris.

Review — ‘The Fate of the Furious’ Is Little More Than a Loud Family Reunion

The Fate of the Furious’ Is Little More Than a Loud Family ReunionThe only thing furious here is the slapping of keyboards as hackers wage war.

If you look up “unlikeliest franchises” in the dictionary, well, you’re a fool, because that’s not how dictionaries work. But if they did, and if you did, the picture you’d see staring back at you from what has now become a picture dictionary of some sort would probably be of Vin Diesel grimacing behind the wheel of a car while flaming semi-trucks do wheelies out his back window. What started with the simple joys of street-racing in 2001’s The Fast and the Furious has morphed into the biggest and silliest film series out there.

After peaking with Fast Five in 2011 the franchise left that film’s perfect balance of beautiful, ridiculous action and entertainingly silly writing to tilt further and further into full-on, regrettably

Major Crimes Season 5 Episode 21 Review: Shockwave Part 2

Sharon got a well-deserved promotion after a bomber nearly killed everyone in the unit, while Rusty seemed to let go of Gus.

And Flynn jumped into action and proved that he will do pretty much anything to defend Sharon!

As season finales go, Major Crimes Season 5 Episode 21 was fairly exciting. I definitely will want to tune in when it returns, though I found some aspects of the conclusion confusing.

The first half of "Shockwave: Part 2" involved an extensive manhunt for suspected bomber Christian Ortiz.

I didn't expect the twist that he'd actually been innocent of murder until he decided to start bombing people to protest having been locked up unfairly.

Flynn: He doesn't just want to screw his ex-wife. He wants to screw the entire Lapd the way he feels we screwed him.

Buzz: I know the justice system isn't always perfect, but if he'd just given us a chance.

Headshot review – ultra-violent Indonesian action-thriller

Bad guys go on the rampage in this stylish and excessively gory iteration of the action genre

This Indonesian action film unfolds a story as old as time, or at least as old as film noir, in which a bad man (the undeniably charismatic Iko Uwais) experiences a trauma so severe (shot in the head, thrown into the sea) he wakes up with amnesia and somehow a completely different personality (which seems unlikely from a neurological point of view). Nerdy-cute medic Ailin (Chelsea Islan) nurses him back to health in the hospital and names him Ishmael after the narrator of Moby-Dick, which she happens to be reading at the time.

The film-making owes far less to any literary antecedents than it does to the kind of ultra-violent, stylish action films made in Hong Kong and Korea. As such, it’s a very good iteration of the genre, with moody lighting,

Legends Of Tomorrow season 2 episode 10 review: The Legion Of Doom

Jim Dandy Feb 1, 2017

The Legion Of Doom is the best episode of Legends of Tomorrow this season, and possibly its best ever.

This Legends of Tomorrow review contains spoilers.

2.10 The Legion Of Doom

Usually it takes me until the last third of an episode to start writing it up, but The Legion Of Doom started so well that I couldn’t hold back. From the opening to the first commercial, I must have written at least eight lines in all caps:

Darhk Does The Intro! That’S New! And The Legion Is Bickering And Infighting! This Is Perfect! Or Oh Shit, That’S How They’Re Gonna Deal With Lily!

This episode was pure fanservice from the very beginning, and I loved every second of it.

Much like how the best parts of last season were Len and Mick Taste The Scenery, this episode’s A story follows Damien Darhk

‘Homeland’ Recap: Carrie, Saul and Quinn Get Back to Business in Episode 3, ‘The Covenant’

‘Homeland’ Recap: Carrie, Saul and Quinn Get Back to Business in Episode 3, ‘The Covenant’
Spoiler alert: Do not read unless you have seen “Homeland’s” Jan. 29 episode, “The Covenant.”

Carrie learns a hard lesson and finagles her way out of a jam as only she can. Saul bares down on a bad guy with fast-talking intensity, furrowed brow and formidable beard. And Quinn gets a good chunk of his groove back in the third episode of “Homeland’s” sixth season, “The Covenant.”

The episode written by Ron Nyswaner and directed by Lesli Linka Glatter finds our characters doing what they do best, albeit in a slightly different context than in past seasons. This episode felt like a table-setting for more dramatic developments to come. But it is always a pleasure to watch these great actors — Claire Danes, Mandy Patinkin and Rupert Friend — bring to life telling moments big and small that add to depth to their characters.

Meanwhile, the episode also lays the track for renewed suspicion of F. Murray Abraham’s

Adam Driver To Star In Live Super Bowl Commercial For Snickers — Watch Previews
In 2015, Snickers and advertising agency Bbdo New York aired a Super Bowl spot that featured Danny Trejo playing Marcia Brady from “The Brady Bunch” prior to eating a Snickers Bar. Snickers followed up the Super Bowl ad with another in a similar vein featuring Willem Dafoe playing Marilyn Monroe.
