Coming to America (1988)
I love John Landis. I know not everyone shares this opinion. He has been controversial ever since his involvement in the Twilight Zone: The Movie accident that claimed the lives of his leading man, Vic Morrow, and co-stars Myca Dinh Le and Shin-Yi Chen, both of whom were children. It’s an impossible discussion to have in any kind of satisfying way here; there was an entire book written about it (Outrageous Conduct by Stephen Farber and Marc Green) and a lengthy court case at the end of which Landis was absolved of legal responsibility.

The Making of Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, by J.W. Rinzler, is a
In the screenplay by Neustadter and Weber,
For many years, Neil Gaiman’s novel American Gods was thought to be unfilmable. It was felt the novel was too grandiose for the big screen, with too many characters and too much story to fit into one 2-hour or 2-hour plus film. Almost 20 years later, Michael Green and Bryan Fuller thought to develop it as a television series for Starz starring Ricky Whittle (The 100) as protagonist Shadow Moon and Ian McShane (Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) as the mysterious Mr. Wednesday.
The 8-episode first season adapts roughly a third of the novel. Shadow Moon is released early from prison after learning his wife has died in an unfortunate car accident while having an affair with his best friend. Adrift, he meets the mysterious and enigmatic con-man Mr. Wednesday, who offers Shadow a job as his bodyguard. The two begin

Tiffany Haddish’s performance in this year’s “Girls Trip” is absolutely worthy of Oscar attention — and her work on “The Carmichael Show” as well as her stand-up special “She Ready” definitely deserve praise too — and hosting “Saturday Night Live” is as declarative a statement as they come.

Host: Tiffany Haddish
Tiffany Haddish is just infectious positivity in comedy form, which is kind of necessary considering there’s still a question of what this season of “Saturday Night Live” wants to be outside of “a reminder that everything in the world is bonkers-slash-horrifying.
