The X Factor Final 2015: as it happened

13 December 2015 2:03 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

Reggie N Bollie v Louisa Johnson. Only one could be crowned X Factor champion 2015, but who?

10.03pm GMT

Anyway, that’s it. Louisa Johnson has won X Factor 2015, which means this is probably the last X Factor liveblog I’ll ever write. I might change my mind, or be coerced into returning next year, but right now this really feels like the end of something. I realise this means I’ll miss Louisa’s triumphant return to X Factor next year, which will be her first of three televised appearances before she disappears forever, but I’m sure we’ll all survive.

In which case, thanks again for all the support, everyone. You guys have been great. Now, please do the decent thing and turn your televisions off.

10.02pm GMT

Unfortunately Harry Styles didn’t run onstage and tell Louisa about all the pussy she’ll get now, but I’m sure he wanted to. »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 movie review: breaking the blockbuster

16 November 2015 6:05 AM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

One of the smartest and most enthralling Sf film series ever breaks more new ground as it ends on notes as emotional and provocative as they are explosive. I’m “biast” (pro): big Sf geek; love the book series; love Jennifer Lawrence (and much of the rest of the cast); crave female-centered stories

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have read the source material (and I love it)

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

There are many ways in which the Hunger Games series of movies has been groundbreaking. It has given us a female world-changing heroine in the mold of the countless boys and men Hollywood has cast in such a role, and showed the caricature up by depicting her as more human than most of them: more conflicted, more unsure, more afraid yet also more brave for overcoming all that… and also simultaneously more principled and more selfish. »

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 tracking lowest opening weekend of the franchise

29 October 2015 4:03 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

With four weeks to go until its release, box office analysts are suggesting that The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is tracking a domestic opening weekend of $121.5 million, just below that of the previous instalment, Mockingjay – Part 1, which debuted with $121.9 million last November.

Should the box office tracking prove accurate, Mockingjay – Part 2 would also fall short of the domestic opening weekend of the first movie, which debuted with $152.5 million, and Catching Fire, which posted a franchise high of $158.1 million.

So much for it being more anticipated than Star Wars: The Force Awakens…

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is directed by Francis Lawrence and stars Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Jeffrey Wright, Willow Shields, Sam Claflin, Jena Malone, Stanley Tucci, Donald Sutherland, Julianne Moore, Mahershala Ali, Natalie Dormer, »

Fans were in for quite the surprise during Taylor Swift's 1989 world tour show in Nashville on Friday.

The duo stole the show with a performance of Aerosmith's "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing." But the fun didn't stop there. After the show, Taylor tweeted out how much of an honor it was to sing with Steven and shared a clip from the show. Singing 'I Don't Want to Miss a Thing' with @IamStevenT was an honor.

Josh Hutcherson on 'Escobar' and watching people watch his movies on a plane

26 June 2015 4:10 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

It's sort of crazy to think that Josh Hutcherson is still only 22-year-old.  The Kentucky native has already been a centerpiece of two major studio franchises ("Journey" and "The Hunger Games"), appeared in a Best Picture nominee ("The Kids Are All Right"), starred in an unnecessary remake ("Red Dawn"), voiced a major character in an animated release ("Epic") and starred in two classic family films ("Bridge to Terabithia" and "Zathura").  His four-year journey as Peeta comes to an end this November, but Hutcherson is actually spreading his wings into his first real adult role this weekend with "Escobar: Paradise Lost." Directed by first-timer Andrea Di Stefano, "Escobar" centers on a Canadian surf boarder (Hutcherson) who falls for one of the nieces of the notorious Columbian drug lord Pablo Escobar (Benicio Del Toro). While the movie's storyline is fiction it was inspired by the tale of a young Italian who made »
