The Flash Season 5 Episode 2 Review: Blocked

Chris Klein makes his proper debut as Cicada as The Flash Season 5 continues to impress!

This The Flash review contains spoilers.

The Flash Season 5 Episode 2

First, a confession. I should have given last week's episode of The Flash five stars. I don't know why I knocked off that half. Maybe I was just tired or something. I just needed to get that off my chest. I can lie to myself about any number of things, but I cannot lie to you, the readers.

Ahem...anyway...

"Blocked" got immediate points out of the gate for that atmospheric, eerie opening that completes the Cicada introduction from the ending of "Nora." It was neat seeing that Gridlock didn't go down completely without a fight, and then immediately establishing that Cicada is also just, well, some dude, actually adds to the creepy factor a little bit. I hope they tease scenes like this out all season long.

Meet The Designer Who Went From ‘Lemonade’ & ‘Room’ To ‘Beautiful Boy’

Production designers rarely get the credit they deserve. That is, of course, unless they are building fantastical new worlds or recreating eras long gone by. Sometimes the best work actually goes under the radar intentionally. Sometimes you’re supposed to believe an actor is performing on a real-life location when they are not. And, surprise, thanks to Ethan Tobman‘s efforts that’s exactly what you’ll experience watching Timothée Chalamet and Steve Carell in Felix Van Groeningen’s “Beautiful Boy.”

Third Trailer for Colossal 'Mortal Engines' Movie Starring Hera Hilmar

"Nothing can stand in the face of this..." Universal has released a full-length third official trailer for sci-fi adaptation Mortal Engines, based on a popular book series. This movie has been in the works for years, in development by Peter Jackson and the Lotr/Hobbit team. We've already featured two good trailers for this so far, with this one being the pay off, big time, final push. And it looks seriously epic The fantastically eccentric cast includes Hugo Weaving, Hera Hilmar, Robert Sheehan, Jihae, Ronan Raftery, Leila George, Patrick Malahide, and Stephen Lang. The detailed VFX shots from Weta are looking better and better. The plot in this, which still reminds me a bit of Dune, is about huge cities that move around and battle against each other and a woman who threatens everything. This looks, and sounds, like a mix between John Carter and Transformers or something like that.

Podtalk: Kyle MacLachlan at Michigan Avenue Magazine 10th Celebration

Chicago – At Chicago’s Michigan Avenue Magazine 10th Anniversary Issue event on September 11th, 2018, a surprise visitor joined cover celebrity Darren Criss, and his low-key appearance brought a stir of excitement to the room. Actor Kyle MacLachlan, best known for the extraordinary work in “Twin Peaks,” was in the house.

MacLachlan of course was Agent Dale Cooper, in the original run of “Twin Peaks” in 1990-91, the movie prequel “Twin Peaks: Fire Walk with Me” and the unforgettable 18 episode revisit to Tp by director/creator David Lynch, that played on the Showtime Network in 2017. But that’s not all for the Amazing Mr. MacLachlan. He is a prodigy of David Lynch, having made his debut in the director’s film version of “Dune” in 1984, followed by his godly turn in “Blue Velvet” (1986). He is also memorable in so many other roles, including Ray Manzarek in Oliver Stone’s “The Doors

Timothee Chalamet says it’s “a dream come true” to work with Denis Villeneuve on Dune

After earning critical acclaim for his roles in the likes of Lady Bird, Call Me By Your Name (which saw him receive an Oscar nomination for Best Actor) and the upcoming Beautiful Boy [read our review here], Timothee Chalamet will soon be heading to the world of Arrakis as he takes on the lead role of Paul Atreides in Denis Villeneuve’s two-part adaptation of Dune.

Speaking to The Playlist, Chalamet has been speaking about the appeal of the project, revealing that he is relishing the chance to work with Arrival and Blade Runner 2049 helmer Villeneuve.

“Denis is one of my favorite filmmakers,” said Chalamet. “I want to work with any and all, and that’s not a hyperbolic use of those words, ‘great filmmakers.’ But, what’s especially inspiring about Denis films are the size of them. They reach a big audience. These are films meant to play in front of big crowds.

Timothée Chalamet Raves About ‘Dune’ and Denis Villeneuve: ‘If You Do a Big Movie, Make Sure It’s With a Great Director’
Timothée Chalamet is an indie film darling thanks to his Oscar-nominated turn in “Call Me by Your Name” and his upcoming role in “Beautiful Boy,” but the 22-year-old actor will be making the leap to big-budget studio fare with Denis Villeneuve’s “Dune” remake. News broke in July that the “Sicario” and “Blade Runner 2049″ director was bringing Chalamet on board to play the lead, Paul Atreides, and now Chalamet is speaking about the project for the first time.

“Denis is one of my favorite filmmakers,” Chalamet told The Playlist. “What’s especially inspiring about Denis films are the size of them. They reach a big audience.

Denis Villeneuve’s Editor Looks Back at That Four-Hour ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Cut, Teases How He’s Approaching ‘Dune’

Denis Villeneuve’s Editor Looks Back at That Four-Hour ‘Blade Runner 2049’ Cut, Teases How He’s Approaching ‘Dune’
Denis Villeneuve piqued the interest of “Blade Runner 2049” fans when he revealed in December that the first cut of his science-fiction sequel was four hours long. The director admitted his four-hour version was “pretty strong,” but he said the 163-minute theatrical version was an overall better movie and less self-indulgant. For editor Joe Walker, a regular collaborator of Villeneuve’s after “Sicario” and “Arrival,” cutting down that four-hour cut proved challenging. Walker recently spoke to Collider about what he left in and took out, and the reasons why for each.

One thing Walker knew he couldn’t touch in the editing room were some of Roger Deakins’ most stunning shots. Walker explained that in conventional films an editor would leave a shot of a character walking into a room on screen for an average of three to four seconds, but taking that approach on “Blade Runner 2049” was impossible

Kyle MacLachlan Shares the First Pep Talk David Lynch Gave Him, Relives Horrific First Reaction to ‘Showgirls’

Kyle MacLachlan Shares the First Pep Talk David Lynch Gave Him, Relives Horrific First Reaction to ‘Showgirls’
Kyle MacLachlan was only 23 years old when he made his acting debut in David Lynch’s “Dune,” a major gig for even the most experienced actor. The movie was the start of the actor’s longtime friendship with the director, and MacLachlan knew pretty early on Lynch was going to be a trusted collaborator. MacLachlan recently joined GQ for a video interview looking back on his career and revealed an early memory of Lynch that sealed the deal on their friendship.

“The first screen test I did I had never seen a film camera before. I was looking down the barrel of the camera and I went completely blank,” MacLachlan said. “David came over to me. I told him, ‘I don’t think I can do this, David,’ and he said to me, ‘You’re gonna be great, it’s gonna be great, you’re gonna be fine. I know you can do it.

Filming will begin March for a worldwide release date of February 14, 2020. MGM will distribute domestically, and Universal releases the film in international territories, after it won a hotly contested auction last May.

Producers Michael G. Wilson and Barbara Broccoli and the studio met numerous helmers after Danny Boyle dropped out over creative differences, this after they sparked to the filmmaker’s concept and hired his Trainspotting screenwriter John Hodge to write it. Sources said that it was a big creative swing, and they mutually decided it would be better to go back to the project they planned to make with venerable 007 scribes Neal Purvis and Robert Wade.

Fukunaga directed the critically acclaimed Beasts of No Nation for Netflix.

The producers just confirmed Fukunaga’s hire.
