DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow: 10 Big Questions We’re Asking After ‘Blood Ties’

13 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The CW

The two-part Pilot of DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is out the way, although episode 3 – Blood Ties – still feels at times like a continuation of that. The majority of the setup is out of the way, meaning the show is free to sink its teeth into the main storyline without lots of exposition, but there are times when it’s evident that it’s still finding its feet.

There’s nothing wrong with that, it is only three episodes in after all, and hopefully people will continue to give this show a chance, because a lot of it is really fun.

Once again the standouts of the episode are Wentworth Miller’s Captain Cold and Caity Lotz’s Sara Lance. They were apart for most of Blood Ties, but in both of their arcs they were clearly the best thing in it, and really help elevate the show »

DC’s Legends Of Tomorrow: 14 Wtf Moments From ‘Blood Ties’

16 hours ago | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

The CW

With our group of Legends still stuck in 1975, things are the worst that they’ve been for the group since their debut three episodes ago.

Not only is Vandal Savage still on the loose, but Carter Hall has been killed at Savage’s hand, Kendra Saunders is on death’s door, and there’s just a little bit of tension between uber-brains Ray Palmer and Martin Stein. The cohesive team who were meant to save all of humanity, this certainly is not.

In this latest outing, Blood Ties, we find several different missions for our fragmented team; Rip Hunter and Sara Lance go directly after Savage; Stein and The Atom put their brains together to try and save Kendra; and Captain Cold, Heat Wave and Jax take a little trip of their own that just so happens to involve stealing a priceless emerald.

Much like the previous two episodes, »

Legends of Tomorrow Recap: Take His Heart

4 February 2016 10:30 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Kendra and Carter are integral to Legends of Tomorrow. And from what we've seen so far, that's not a good thing.These characters bring out the show's worst elements, from the Ancient Egypt flashbacks and the lack of chemistry between Ciara Renée and Falk Hentschel, to the weird ways their story contradicts the show's desire to prove free will can triumph over destiny. In the first two episodes, it wasn't exactly clear why the show felt so charmless and messy. With Carter dead and Kendra out of action after a near-fatal wound, it seems obvious that they are show's greatest flaw. By sidelining their story line — or more aptly, by sidelining them — Legends of Tomorrow improves dramatically. Don't get me wrong, the show still has a lot of issues. But "Blood Ties" marks the first time it begins living up to the fun zaniness of its premise. Based on the »

Legends of Tomorrow Season 1 Episode 3 Review: “Blood Ties”

4 February 2016 7:00 PM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

After last week’s episode with the death of Hawkman, this week’s episode of Legends of Tomorrow focuses heavily on Leonard Snart a.k.a. Captain Cold as he tries to change his childhood while Ray and Stein start to have a better understanding for one another. Along with that, Rip learns a valuable lesson about the importance of teamwork. One of the aspects that I was always excited for with Legends of Tomorrow, was the different dynamics between this mixtures of characters. This episode really shuffled all of them into separate groups which were a lot of fun to watch, because some of these people never interacted

The CW has released a new poster for the superhero team-up show DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, which showcases the eight heroes below the tagline, “Who Controls The Past Controls The Future.”

Besides a recent casualty at the hands of Vandal Savage, all eight heroes are featured on the poster, including: Heat Wave (Dominic Purcell), Hawkgirl (Ciara Renée), Firestorm (Victor Garber and Franz Drameh), Rip Hunter (Arthur Darvill), Atom (Brandon Routh), White Canary (Caity Lotz), and Captain Cold (Wentworth Miller).

Tonight’s episode of the superhero show, titled “Blood Ties,” sees Rip Hunter concocting a plan for the Legends to go after evildoer Vandal Savage by crippling him financially. The team decides to infiltrate Savage’s bank, while Captain Cold and Heat Wave talk Jefferson (aka Jax, aka half of Firestorm) into stealing Rip’s time traveling ship for a bit of diamond plundering in Central City.

Legends of Tomorrow: Will Captain Cold Change History?

4 February 2016 7:09 AM, PST | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

Captain Cold is always a wild card on Legends of Tomorrow; you never really know what the guy is going to do next. And that’s why it shouldn’t be too shocking to see just how little Leonard Snart cares about changing history in this sneak peek from tonight’s episode, titled “Blood Ties.” In the video below, Wentworth Miller discusses tonight’s all-new hour of Legends of Tomorrow and teases that we may learn more about Snart’s past as he, Heatwave, and Jax travel back to Central City to steal a priceless jewel.

Spotlight movie review: all the pope’s men

6 January 2016 1:36 PM, PST | www.flickfilosopher.com | See recent FlickFilosopher news »

An elegy for old-school reportage and the people who pursue it, and a journalistic procedural with a snappy rush of urgent discovery and consequence. I’m “biast” (pro): partial to stories about journalists, love the cast

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

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

For me, this kind of story is why we do this.” So says Liev Schreiber as Marty Baron, the editor of the Boston Globe newspaper on the eve of the publication, in January 2002, of a story the team of investigative journalists in the paper’s Spotlight department had been working on for months. It would crack open the coverup of pedophile priests in the Catholic Church in Boston, led to the revelations of similar coverups around the U.S. and across the planet, and would go on to win a Pulitzer Prize in 2003. But “this kind of story »
