The Five Best Bruce Willis Movies of His Career

If you want to talk about someone that’s just tough and still able to take on roles that are complicated and dramatic then you should be thinking of Bruce Willis at some point. He’s not exactly what you would think of in terms of being the strict archetype of a hero but he is the everyman type that can do a little bit of everything in a kind of haphazard, slapdash sort of way. But that’s why so many people love the guy, he can take a role that might not be entirely geared for him and make it into

Introducing Batwoman: What To Know About Ruby Rose’s Lesbian Superhero on The CW

Introducing Batwoman: What To Know About Ruby Rose’s Lesbian Superhero on The CW
At the end of “The Flash” episode “Elseworlds, Part 1” — the first installment in the annual CW/DC crossover event — the newest addition to its comic-book world made a classic Bat-entrance: A masked hero stands on a rooftop in full costume, gazing down at Gotham.

It’s a familiar sight, although the World’s Greatest Detective rarely, if ever, wears hot pink — and certainly not as a wig. Instead, this is the introduction of Batwoman; as played by Ruby Rose, she’s poised to make history.

The many DC series produced by Greg Berlanti, including “Arrow,” “The Flash,” “Supergirl,” “Legends of Tomorrow,” and “Black Lightning,” have been limited in previous years in how they might refer to other iconic characters, especially the “big three” — though things have changed: “Legends” did pay a quick visit to Wonder Woman’s homeland of Themyscira, and Superman, as now played by Tyler Hoechlin, now appears semi-regularly on “Supergirl.

Critics Pick the Most Disappointing TV Shows of 2018 – IndieWire Survey

Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Tuesday.

This week’s question: What’s the most disappointing show of 2018?

(This is based on some anticipation of a show being good or promising, and then not living up to that standard. Both new and returning shows apply.)

Clint Worthington (@alcohollywood), Consequence of Sound, Freelance

The first season of “Westworld” felt like a wonderful extension of the themes showrunner Jonathan Nolan has been almost single-mindedly preoccupied with since “Person of Interest” — taking an old ‘70s classic sci-fi Western and infusing it with complex discussions of artificial intelligence, personhood, and the inherent problems underlying our images of the Old West. For the most part, Season 1 was a rousing success, culminating in a beautifully dark puzzle-box ending that set up a delicious revolution for the “hosts” of the park. Then Season 2 happened, and much

10 Things You Didn’t Know About Soul Eater

For anime fans, the distinction between animation considered authentic anime and traditional animation is obvious.

While anime is simply French for animates, the term has become synonymous with the Japanese artwork and animation techniques that have become notoriously famous. For true anime fans, Soul Eaters has become a cult classic and while the series that made it famous have ended, Soul Eater is still a fan favorite around the world. Fan or
