Win Vanishing Point and Flying Tigers on Blu-ray

To mark the release of Vanishing Point and Flying Tigers, both out now, we’ve been given a copy of each on Blu-ray to give away to 1 winner.

Vanishing Point

Barry Newman stars as Kowalski, the last American hero, who sets out to prove that he can drive from Denver to San Francisco in just fifteen hours. Along the way, he meets an old prospector, a nude woman on a motorcycle, and a blind D.J. who “sees” danger ahead in this super-charged, action-packed adventure!

Flying Tigers

The American Volunteer Group, or Flying Tigers, fight bravely for China’s freedom despite the fact that they are greatly outnumbered. Squadron leader Jim Gordon (John Wayne) gets a new recruit when Woody Jason (John Carroll) joins the group. Woody signs up only because he needs money to pay for a breach-of-promise suit. His egotism and mercenary motives gain him the ill-will of fellow fliers.

Manifest Episode 12 Review: Vanishing Point

Manifest takes an interesting new direction as it nears its finale with Cal at the center of a broadening phenomenon.

TV

This review contains spoilers for Manifest.

Manifest Season 1 Episode 12

This week’s Manifest episode removes a conflict that many shows use perhaps too often to create drama: it admirably eliminates Ben’s annoyingly male need to keep everything secret from his wife in order to protect her. In this case, there was perhaps the superstition based on another passenger’s experience that telling loved ones could be a death sentence, but thankfully that fear appears to have been laid to rest. The new mystery surrounding the hiker combined with the introduction of the Major in the flesh has “Vanishing Point” feeling like the exciting penultimate episode of the season that it originally was before NBC gave Manifest a full order.

With Cal at the center of things this week,

Manifest: The Major Unmasked As a New Player is (Finally!) Introduced

It was game time on Manifest Season 1 Episode 12 as Grace and Ben teamed-up to save their son, Cal, before a shady government entity, run by a woman calling herself The Major, could get their hands on him.

By now, Manifest fans know that in order to take two steps forward, we have to take a few steps back.

The more answers we get, the more questions arise.

We may have been given more pieces to the puzzle, but we don't have a clearer answer as to the mythology.

We know who is pulling the strings, but we don't know why.

And on top of the current mystery, a new player has been added to the fold, and we're not sure where he stands on the "good guy" scale just yet.

Emmy episode analysis: Ed Harris (‘Westworld’) questions his reality in ‘Vanishing Point’
After missing the cut in the Drama Supporting Actor category last year, Ed Harris made the leap to Best Drama Actor and scored a deserved Emmy nomination for his performance as William on HBO’s “Westworld.” This is his third Emmy nomination after previous bids for the miniseries “Empire Falls” and “Game Change.” The actor is also a four-time Academy Award nominee thanks to his roles in “Apollo 13,” “The Truman Show,” “Pollock” and “The Hours.” He has submitted the episode “Vanishing Point” for Emmy consideration.

In “Vanishing Point,” William remembers a time when his wife Juliet (Sela Ward) was still alive. Juliet must be taken home after drinking too much at a party, and their daughter Emily (Katja Herbers) suggests that she return to rehab. As William tucks his wife into bed, she asks him to stop lying and tell her “one true thing.” He admits there is some type of “stain” within him,

‘Westworld’ Is Killing the Same Characters So Many Times, It’s Actually Killing Itself — Spoilers

‘Westworld’ Is Killing the Same Characters So Many Times, It’s Actually Killing Itself — Spoilers
[Editor’s Note: The following article contains spoilers for “Westworld” Season 2, including the finale and its post-credits scene.]

So many people died in the “Westworld” Season 2 finale — some even died for the second time.

Think about that for a second: How many times have you seen Bernard (played beautifully by Jeffrey Wright) die? It happened once in Season 1, when Dr. Ford (Anthony Hopkins) orders him to kill himself. It happened twice in Season 1 if you count the flashback to when Arnold (also played by Jeffrey Wright) orders Dolores (Evan Rachel Wood) to kill him. And then it happened again near the ending of Season 2, when Dolores — brought back to life by Bernard and inhabiting a copy of Charlotte Hale’s body (Tessa Thompson) — decides Bernard needs to die so he can be rebuilt and set free in the real world.

But he was still shot dead. For a brief amount of time, the audience is meant to believe Bernard is gone,

But in a series that demands close attention and prides itself on big reveals, there are still major dangling threads to piece together before the final episode of the year. Examine the best theories about the series’ lingering questions below and tune into “The Passengers” on Sunday, June 24 on HBO to see which of these guesses come to fruition.

Man or Robot?

Let’s get the big question out of the way. “Vanishing Point” left William (Ed Harris) in a state of despair, wondering if he is actually a host.

Forget a shot in the arm; this week's Westworld stuck a huge knife into the thing, prying the lid open on a question many fans have been asking since the start of the series.

In "Vanishing Point," season two's penultimate episode, the Man in Black (Ed Harris) completely loses his mind… or does he?

Sela Ward Could Return to ‘Westworld’ – Yes, Even After That Dark Twist

  • The Wrap
Sela Ward Could Return to ‘Westworld’ – Yes, Even After That Dark Twist
(Major spoiler alert: Please do not read ahead unless you’ve seen Sunday’s episode of “Westworld” Season 2, “Vanishing Point.”)

Juliet is dead on “Westworld” — but that doesn’t mean Sela Ward’s relationship with the show needs to be.

After her character’s chilling death by suicide on Sunday’s episode — Season 2’s penultimate installment that also served as our introduction to the older version of William’s (Ed Harris) wife — we know we won’t be seeing her in the HBO sci-fi series’ current timeline. But thanks to the many flashbacks the show features, it’s not out of the question that Juliet will return.
