The Awesome Thing You Don't Know About Eleven's "Sister" on Stranger Things

Now that we've all had a chance to watch the Hell out of Stranger Things on its premiere weekend, it's time to dish. Perhaps one of the most compelling aspects of the show's new episodes is the introduction of Eleven's "sister" (played by Linnea Berthelsen). She's Hawkins Lab experiment #008, and she calls herself Kali. We meet the new character during a high-octane chase scene in the first scene of the first episode, and everything changes from there. We suddenly realize that the other children Dr. Brenner experimented on may still be alive. But there are more intriguing aspects of Kali than just the fact that she exists. For instance, her name has a greater significance than you think. Kali displays an entirely different set of abilities from Eleven. Instead of having telekinetic powers that allow her to move things with her mind, she's an illusionist. She can trick the mind

‘Stranger Things’: 19 Totally ‘80s Pop Culture References That Should Be in Season 2

‘Stranger Things’: 19 Totally ‘80s Pop Culture References That Should Be in Season 2
Stranger Things 2” returns just in time for Halloween, both in the real world and in the eerie town of Hawkins, Indiana conceived in the nostalgic minds of The Duffer Brothers. The action picks up three days before Halloween 1984, which means that the year will soon be coming to a close. For those who may not have been alive or perhaps have a shaky memory of the time, 1984 was a big year for memorable events and in pop culture.

The first season reveled in bringing the time period alive in all of its totally ‘80s glory, from Dungeons & Dragons gaming sessions and Eggo waffles to homages to “E.T.,” “The Shining,” and “Rambo.” Hell, even star Winona Ryder’s presence is a timely tribute since she made her early career in such iconic ‘80s films as “Lucas,” “Beetlejuice,” and “Heathers.”

Shia Labeouf’s Mutt Williams Will Not Be in Indiana Jones 5

I recently rewatched Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull for the first time since I first watched it in theaters. It was actually a little better than I remember it being, but for the most part, it was still a dud and the worst film in the franchise. Like many of you, one of the characters that I couldn't stand was Shia Labeouf’s Mutt Williams, who is Indiana Jones' son. If you didn't care for the character either, you'll be happy to know that there will be no place for him in Indiana Jones 5.

During a recent interview with EW, screenwriter David Koepp talked about the next chapter of the Indiana Jones story and confirmed Mutt will not be in the movie:

"Harrison plays Indiana Jones, that I can certainly say… and the Shia Labeouf character is not in the film."

Koepp went on to say that the

Dimpleplasties Are the Latest Fad in Plastic Surgery

There’s a new option for people who can’t seem to get enough of the dimples belonging to stars like Gabrielle Union, Miranda Kerr and Brad Pitt’s — a procedure called dimpleplasty.

Plastic surgeons have seen a rise in requests for surgically-created dimples, something Dr. Wright Jones, MD and founder of Muse Plastic Surgery, credits to social media.

“I think that our social media-driven culture is aiding to the demand,” Dr. Jones tells People. “Our selfie-driven culture is likely contributing to why we are getting more dimpleplasty requests. Our patient demographic requesting this procedure includes millennial women who fall

New Logan Behind The Scenes Video Shows Off The VFX Magic

For 17 long, long years, Hugh Jackman brought Wolverine to life with such a raw intensity that it’s difficult to imagine anyone else donning those iconic adamantium claws anytime soon. That saga, one with many ups and downs, reached its conclusion back in March with the release of Logan, James Mangold’s poignant, R-rated finale that struck a chord with critics and X-Men fans the world over. And even now, almost three months since it hit theatres, the film continues to find itself making headlines.

As you probably know, the threequel hit Blu-ray last month and brought with it a ton of special features. From a director’s commentary to a black and white cut of the movie and of course, an extensive making-of documentary, there’s a lot there for fans to dig into. There’s also been a ton of new and intriguing tidbits surfacing about the film

Pregnant Women Are Flocking to This Charlotte Pizza Joint for Its Labor-Inducing Slices — What’s the Secret?

Ali Aldrich was 38-and-a-half weeks pregnant with her first child when she says she was doing anything possible to bring on labor.

“I was very pregnant. I was pretty big and swelling a lot, so I was really ready to go,” Aldrich, of Charlotte, North Carolina, tells People.

The now mother of two tried a foot massage and nothing happened. But then her husband suggested the Buffalo Wing Pizza – a pie with a kick to it – from Hawthorne’s New York Pizza and Bar in Charlotte.

“I had always heard spicy foods could do it, so we ordered the pizza at 6 p.

Conan O'Brien Once Joked That Harrison Ford Could Play Indiana Jones at 80 Years Old

What was once a joke on Late Night TV 17 years ago, seems more like prophecy today. During a guest appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien back in 2000, Harrison Ford told Conan O'Brien that he would like to reprise his role as Indiana Jones, but at the time they did not have a script. Conan then joked that the Indy franchise is so popular that he would watch it even if Dr. Jones was 80. Little did he know just how close to predicting the future he was.

Ford did eventually reprise his again role as Dr. Jones in 2007's Indiana Jones and the  Kingdom of the Crystal Skull which many thought would be his last time.  But now Ford is currently gearing up to don the fedora and whip one more time in 2020. Which means Ford will be in his late seventies when Indiana Jones 5 opens in theaters on

Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 17 Review: Convergence

  • TVfanatic
The title for Madam Secretary Season 3 Episode 17, "Convergence," couldn't have been more on the nose. We don't usually spend a lot of time talking about titles, but they're usually a little more enigmatic then this.

The long running arcs finally started to fit together, and thank god we don't have to have another tease about Henry worrying about Ian. Personally, I don't care if we never see him again now that the whole point of the religious cult storyline is clear.

Okay, it was clear before. I've been saying for a while that this is where it was headed, and while it's always nice to be about to say "I told you so," I was so tired of waiting for things to resolve. 

Drawing out obvious plots is like enduring bad dental work. Why would the writers inflict that upon fans?

Let's all try to come up with ideas for

'Supergirl' Recap: Alex, Mon-El and James Make Big Changes in Their Lives

  • BuddyTV
Supergirl gets all X-Files in this episode when some kind of alien parasite infects an environmental activist, Dr. Jones. The parasite gives its host powers to suck energy from whatever it comes into contact with, which makes it very hard for Kara to fight.

While this monster of the week is scary and formidable, once again Supergirl's greatest strength comes from the personal relationship of the characters. The episode, aptly titled "Changing," deals with the biggest new developments of the season: Mon-El's existence, Alex's sexuality and James' burgeoning vigilante career. (I bet you can't guess which of that trio is the weakest story! Hint: it's James ... again.)

Watch This Amazing Animated Indiana Jones Short

  • TheMovieBit
Around the release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, artist and animator Patrick Schoenmaker was commissioned by Topps to make special artwork for an Indiana Jones trading card set. This artwork was then joined by two more pieces for Acme Archives, and instilled in Schoenmaker a need to see Dr. Jones, a movie character he had loved since he was a child, in animated form. Five years later, this particular passion project has finally bore fruit in the form of this gorgeous animated short, which sees Indy doing what Indy does: exploring temples, fighting Nazis, and doing blood thirsty locals. While Lucasfilm have had great success spinning Star Wars into animated t.v. shows, good ol’ Indy has always remained in the realm of the big screen (with the exception of the short lived Young Indiana Jones Adventures), and that really should change.

5 Reasons Why No One Besides Harrison Ford Will Play Indiana Jones

  • Cinelinx
There are few film characters who are so closely identified with a single actor as Indiana Jones is with Harrison Ford. It’s hard to imagine someone else wearing the fedora. Could anyone else play the role as well as Ford? We’ll probably never know, because the part is unlikely to ever be recast. Here are 5 reasons why no one else will pick up the whip other than Ford.

Although there were rumors a few years ago about recasting the role of Dr. Henry “Indiana” Jones with a new, younger actor like Chris Pratt or Bradley Cooper, the odds are that we will not see anyone else playing this character (at least, not for a long, long time.) Here are the reasons why…

They Tried To Recast Indy On the TV Series and It Didn’t Work: In the 1992-93 television series The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, three different actors played Jones.

Is An Indiana Jones Shared Universe In The Works?

  • TheMovieBit
With Indiana Jones well and truly ensconced in the House of Mouse, and Disney committed to bring us another adventure for Harrison Ford’s heroic archaeologist, I think we all assumed quite a few movies starring Indy are on their way, but a curious piece of information has come out of Star Wars Celebration Europe suggesting that Dr. Jones and co. will be getting the Marvel and Star Wars treatment with series of interconnected movies set in the same universe. Speaking at the Art of Storytelling, which shone the light on the Lucas film Story Group and their work crafting the different movies that make up the Star Wars franchise, Ilm president Lynwen Brennan said, Kiri [Hart] and her group have mapped out a story and timeline across multiple platforms many years in advance, many exhausting years in advance. … We have a great honor to have responsibility for, so we want

Actors who Almost Played Famous Roles

  • Cinelinx
Did you ever see an actor/actress in a famous role and then hear later that they were not the first, or even the second choice to play the iconic part? Many of the legendary movie characters began as a vehicle for a different star than the one who we know-and-love in the part. Here are a few of the greatest examples of famous "Almosts'.

Christopher Walken As Han Solo: George Lucas had a very hard time finding his Han Solo in Star Wars: A New Hope (1977). This character was the last of the lead figures to be cast. Lucas’ leading contender at one point was none other than Christopher Walken. Just think about the possibilities in that performance! However, a chance meeting with Harrison Ford (Who was working as a carpenter at the time) inspired Lucas to cast Ford in the part instead, which launched him into super stardom in the 80s.

"Indiana Jones 5" To Be "Crystal Skull 2"?

Last month came the news that Lucasfilm was finally moving forward with a fifth film in the "Indiana Jones" franchise, one which Steven Spielberg will direct from a script by "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull" writer David Koepp.

No further information was revealed at the time, but now producer Frank Marshall has revealed to Variety that the story will continue on from where 'Crystal Skull' left off and won't be a prequel as previously rumored. Whether it will pick up any of the threads left by the last film - Indy's marriage, Indy's son Mutt Williams, etc. is unclear.

One thing that Marshall does clearly spell out though is that you shouldn't expect anyone else to step in and take over the title role - he has little desire for a reboot: "It's all about the story. I think both in the Jason Bourne series and on Indiana Jones,

Archaeological Mysteries/Discoveries To Spark Indiana Jones’ Next Adventure

It was recently announced that Lucasfilm would once again be teaming up with Steven Spielberg and Harrison Ford for Indiana Jones 5. During his cinematic adventures thus far, Indy has gone after the Ark of the Covenant, tracked down a stolen sacred stone, found the Holy Grail, and uncovered an alien UFO.

The last Indiana Jones movie was set in 1957. I imagine Indiana Jones 5 will be set either in the '60s or '70s. There are a number of adventures that Indy could find himself in, but what’s next for the adventurous archeologist? Officially, we’ll have to wait and see — but in the meantime, here’s a list of mysterious archeological discoveries and legends that could spark Indiana Jones on his next adventure.

I will say that a lot of these are in North America because I think it would be cool to see Dr. Jones

Ford Talks Reprising Indy, Offers Solo Advice

As "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" heads to home video next week, Harrison Ford popped up on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" and "Ellen" this week to promote the release with talk turning towards arguably his two most iconic characters - Han Solo and Indiana Jones.

Specifically it focused on the new films on the way in 2018 and 2019 respectively that would see the return of those characters. In regards to the former, a young Han Solo film from Phil Lord and Chris Miller, Ellen DeGeneres asked him if he had any advice for a young actor taking on the role. It was simple: "Don't do it. First, it seems like everything's going swimmingly, and you put in 25, 30 years, and then they just let you go. And they show you the door and say, ‘We're done with you, thanks very much.'"

In regards to Dr. Jones though, which he's reprising his role in,

"Crystal Skull" Scribe Pens "Indiana Jones 5"

David Koepp has been hired to pen the screenplay for the fifth film in the "Indiana Jones" franchise at Disney Pictures.

It will be a familiar job for Koepp who penned the previous film, "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," along with numerous other Spielberg films including "Jurassic Park," "The Lost World," and "War of the Worlds".

Harrison Ford is set to return to the role of Dr. Jones once he wraps work reprising his role of Rick Deckard in Ridley Scott's "Blade Runner" follow-up. Producers Kathleen Kennedy and Frank Marshall are also onboard, but - for now at least - it looks like neither George Lucas or Shia Labeouf will be involved.

"Indiana Jones 5" is currently slated for a July 19th 2019 release.
