Five Things You Didn’t Know about Yara Shahidi

If you’ve seen ABC’s hit comedy Black-ish, you’ve already experienced the solid acting skills of Yara Shahidi. She plays the role of 14-year-old Zoey Johnson – and even won an NAACP Image Award for doing so. Yara Shahidi has come a long way from her roots. The first jobs she took as an actress and model were television and print advertisements for a variety of companies. She eventually made her cinematic debut, starring alongside Eddie Murphy in Imagine That. Now, the actress is pretty well known (especially after her long stretch on Black-ish). She intends to return for the follow

Outlander Season 3 Finale Recap: Loose Lips, Sunken Ship, Thwarted Trip

Need to catch up? Check out the previous Outlander recap here.

Claire, may I humbly suggest that you never set foot on a seafaring vessel ever again?

If the vagaries of 18th-century sea travel aren’t tough enough on their own, this week’s Outlander caps a season in which Mrs. James Fraser was pressed into service as a ship’s doctor, was forced to live aboard a boat full of men dying in extremely disgusting fashion, jumped overboard to escape said boat and then wound up on another ship and weathered a seriously scary storm before nearly drowning when

Ross Kemp Behind Bars: Inside Barlinnie review – Ross gets the inmate experience, minus the strip-search

Despite a few misguided stunts, the TV hard man provides a thorough look at our struggling penal system with a journey into the notorious Scottish prison. Plus: moving migration stories in Exodus: Our Journey Continues

‘I’m Ross Kemp and I’m going to prison” says Ross Kemp, as he’s cuffed and led into the back of a G4S van. Ha! Best place for him, some might say, and about time. What for, though? For having once been Grant Mitchell? Or having been married to Rebekah Brooks? Is this violence-related or something to do with hacking? No, it’s just his latest hardnut doc, Ross Kemp Behind Bars: Inside Barlinnie (ITV). As in the notorious Hmp Barlinnie in Glasgow, Aka Bar-l and The Big Hoose, once home to Lockerbie bomber Abdelbaset al-Megrahi, gangster-turned-artist-and-writer Jimmy Boyle, and (briefly) Duncans Ferguson and Bannatyne, footballer and Dragon respectively.

Star Trek: Discovery episode 6 review: Lethe

James Hunt Oct 25, 2017

In Lethe, Discovery delivers a vintage Trek episode that's the antidote to last week's edginess. Spoilers ahead in our review...

This review contains spoilers.

See related Red Dwarf Xii episode 3 review: Timewave Red Dwarf Xii episode 2 review: Siliconia Red Dwarf Xii episode 1 review: Cured

1.6 Lethe

This, for my money, was the most Star Trek-like episode of Discovery yet, with a sequence starting out showing the everyday life of crewmen, someone going to bed just so the expectation of safety and comfort can be subverted, and a trite lesson at the end which reprises the intro. If that doesn’t feel like Star Trek in all its wonderful, trope-laden glory, I don’t know what to tell you.

That leaves me wondering whether this feeling is a one-off for the show, or whether Discovery is finding its feet. In any case, if you thought Discovery was too

Why J.J. Abrams’ Your Name’ Remake Could Be a Golden Opportunity for Hollywood to Get Things Right

Why J.J. Abrams’ Your Name’ Remake Could Be a Golden Opportunity for Hollywood to Get Things Right
Imagine that you’re one of the most powerful people in the film business. The sun is just starting to set on another ominously hot September day, but everything looks beautiful and infinite through the floor-to-ceiling windows of your sleek Hollywood office. It wouldn’t be accurate to say that you’re living the dream, because even your wildest fantasies were never this good. The check you got to direct your second “Star Wars” movie had so many digits on it that it looked more like a business card, and the next check someone writes you is going to be blank. And then — pop! — it happens. You get another one of those magical Big Ideas that minted you as a modern titan: What the world truly needs right now is another live-action American remake of a phenomenally popular Japanese anime.

Perfect. A foolproof plan. Sure, Netflix wouldn’t tell you

Pennywise The Clown’s Smile from It is Just as Creepy Without Make Up

You might think that once the makeup comes off that Bill Skarsgard, Pennywise, might be a lot less scary. But apparently you would be wrong. That open-lip smile he gives is something that he used to perform to scare his younger siblings according to the post below. Imagine that, this expression is only enhanced by makeup instead of masked and reproduced. That make Pennywise that much scarier to be quite honest, and he was already extremely creepy to begin with. There have been a lot of comparisons between this Pennywise and that of Tim Curry’s in the 1990 miniseries that

2017 Emmy Predictions: Who Should Win, Who Will Win, and Possible Upsets

Last year, the Emmys started to become much harder to predict, which is ultimately a good thing. It was, and continues to be, the result of a higher calibre of nominees, with better series being represented across the board. There were still snubs, of course, as there are again this year. But the Emmys are starting to better catch up with Peak TV, and rewarding -- for the most part -- actors, series, writers, and directors who are involved with some of the year's best shows. Imagine that! While the drama categories were once those which held the most anticipation, I …

Britain doesn’t need a Fox News. The regulators must block the Murdochs’ bid | Ed Miliband

These owners are neither fit nor proper, and must not be given yet more power over the UK’s media landscape

Imagine a media organisation where senior employees at its biggest-selling Sunday paper were convicted of criminal acts including phone-hacking and perverting the course of justice. Then imagine that the same organisation, having claimed a few years later to have cleaned up its act, is revealed to have its most high-profile TV station rife with claims of sexual harassment by its former chief executive and onscreen star, as well as allegations of widespread racial harassment – both the subject of legal action and Us federal investigation.

Imagine also that the TV station was a byword for bias and slanted coverage and that as recently as May this year it falsely besmirched the name of a murdered Democratic staff member by claiming he, not the Russian government, had leaked thousands of emails

Horror Channel FrightFest Review – Tragedy Girls (2017)

Tragedy Girls, 2017

Directed by Tyler MacIntyre

Starring Brianna Hildebrand, Alexandra Shipp, Kevin Durand, Nicky Whelan, Josh Hutcherson, Jack Quaid, Craig Robinson, Timothy V. Murphy

Synopsis:

Two death-obsessed teenage girls use their online show about real-life tragedies to send their small mid-western town into a frenzy and cement their legacy as modern horror legends.

There is a tendency within film promotion to say a film is “blank meets blank”. In the world of horror where there is no end of possibilities, this term is used a lot, and a common version since the late 90s is, “it’s Scream meets blank”. Tyler MacIntyre’s new film Tragedy Girls is one of those. It’s Scream meets Clueless, it’s Scream meets Heathers, it’s Scream meets Mean Girls, it’s Scream meets Twitter. But the real beauty of Tragedy Girls is that it surpasses the simple “it’s Scream meets” cliché.

'Darkness Rising': Film Review

'Darkness Rising': Film Review
Imagine that when you were a child your mother murdered your sister and tried to kill you as well. Cut to decades later, when the house in which these horrors took place is about to be torn down. Naturally, the first thing you’ll want to do is take one last look around the place for old time’s sake.

Sounds implausible, right? But not in the world of horror films in which characters make so many boneheaded, life-threatening decisions that yelling at the screen has become a cherished communal experience among moviegoers. The latest example, Austin Reading’s Darkness Rising, would be...

Hell in the Pacific
