‘Based on Bigotry’: Members of Congress, Lgbt Advocates Slam Trump’s Proposed Trans Military Ban
President Donald Trump announced in a series of tweets that transgender people will no longer be allowed to serve in the military, and Twitter users are reacting.

Trump wrote in three tweets that the military “must be focused” and “cannot be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail.”

U.S. Army Pvt. Chelsea Manning called the move, “cowardice.”

Patton Oswalt Talks Privacy in the Social Media Age, Combating Fake News and How to Impeach Donald Trump

Patton Oswalt Talks Privacy in the Social Media Age, Combating Fake News and How to Impeach Donald Trump
It’s only right that Emmy-winning actor and comic Patton Oswalt will next be seen in “The Circle,” James Ponsoldt’s big screen adaptation of the popular Dave Eggers novel of the same name, which dives deep inside a nefarious internet company that values knowledge above all else. Oswalt has long been a prolific presence on the web, thanks to his amusing Twitter account and a Facebook page that he frequently uses to get both personal and political.

In the film, Oswalt plays Tom Stenton, the somewhat shadowy COO of The Circle, a powerful social media operation that exploits bright-eyed new staffer Mae (Emma Watson). When she joins the sprawling corporation, she’s soon sucked into some of the more ambitious ideas hatched by Stenton and visionary Steve Jobs-type Eamon Bailey (Tom Hanks). Turns out, the internet can be a scary place, and privacy just might be the last real frontier.

The 3 Best Songs on Ed Sheeran's Album Have Something Very Romantic in Common
For hardcore fans of Ed Sheeran, picking a single favorite song off of his new album, Divide, is like picking a favorite child. While "Supermarket Flowers" might be the most emotional, and "Galway Girl" will have you booking a flight to Ireland Asap, the three best tracks off of Divide (arguably) all have something in common: they were inspired by his current girlfriend Cherry Seaborn. Related:Who Are Ed Sheeran's Songs About? Allow Us to Investigate "Perfect" This slow, sweet ballad is reminiscent of "Thinking Out Loud," and will no doubt be heard at wedding receptions for the next few years. With lyrics like "Well I found a woman, stronger than anyone I know / She shares my dreams, I hope that someday I'll share her home / I found a love, to carry more than just my secrets / To carry love, to carry children of our own," it's practically bursting with romance.

Review: ‘I Am Not Madame Bovary’ is a Lush, Slyly Observant Diagnosis of Contemporary China

A couple of months ago, we noted how it’s been a seriously underwhelming year for Chinese-language cinema – an assessment that stands despite the recent release of Berlinale-winner Crosscurrent. Well, turns out the Middle Kingdom might have a year-end surprise or two up its sleeve after all. Having scored a Fipresci prize at Toronto and the prestigious Golden Seashell at San Sebastián, I Am Not Madame Bovary is a healthy return to form for veteran director Xiaogang Feng that, while not exactly hitting the ball out of the park, delivers a genuinely funny, slyly observant diagnosis of contemporary China complete with lush, absurdist flair.

The many cultural references that give a societal satire like this its texture but inevitably get lost in translation begin with the title. Instead of Flaubert’s world-known creation, it’s actually Pan Jinlian that our heroine Li Xuelian (played by Bingbing Fan) denies of being.

U.S. Trailer for Tiff Winner ‘I Am Not Madame Bovary’ Starring Fan Bingbing

We were sold on I Am Not Madame Bovary based on its teaser trailer, which largely features beautiful paintings before moving into even more gorgeous imagery with a peculiar circular aspect ratio.

If You Are the One's Meng Fei: 'Looking for beauty is universal for men'

As China’s most popular dating show comes to Australia, its host shares some wry advice to avoid coming home empty handed when love is on the line

Meng Fei has a tip for candidates looking to succeed on the long-running Chinese dating show he hosts, If You Are the One. “Every person has a lot of dating criteria – for example, height, appearance, income, education.

Spot the difference: The Bachelorette's all-white Aussie hunk-off

Save for variances in hair length or beard style, there’s precious little diversity among the 14 suitors lined up to woo Australia’s first bachelorette, Sam Frost

When the first image of The Bachelorette Australia’s appointed suitors was released on Sunday, you could be forgiven for thinking Triple M had announced a new breakfast radio lineup. Not since Eddie McGuire and his pals proudly claimed their spot in the radio ratings battle has such a vista of all-white bohunks graced our cultural landscape.

China Lion Sets ‘Somewhere Only We Know’ & ‘Running Man’ In U.S. – Video
La-headquartered China Lion Film Distribution has picked up Chinese titles Running Man and Somewhere Only We Know for release in the U.S., Canada, Australia and New Zealand. Both will go day-and-date with their Mainland debuts later this month and in mid-February, the latter taking advantage of the early Chinese New Year corridor. (See teasers below.)

Each of the films has a strong hook for Chinese, and Korean, audiences. Running Man mixes talent from both countries and is adapted from a popular reality TV series which itself was based on an original Korean format. Somewhere Only We Know taps the trend of romance and nostalgia, and stars Kris Wu, a former member of Korean/Chinese boy band Exo.

Running Man, which China Lion picked up from Wanda Media Group, is a feature spinoff of the popular reality TV show that revolves around celebrity teams who compete against one another for an ultimate prize.

'Sherlock' goes 'Man of Steel': Should heroes have a license to kill?
The Sherlock Holmes played by Benedict Cumberbatch is the most brilliant problem solver on television. The Sherlock Holmes played by Jonny Lee Miller in Elementary comes pretty close, but I give the edge to the “high functioning” sociopath with the “mind palace” in his head. (Now that’s some Intelligence.) The third and final installment of Sherlock’s third season challenged the master detective with a most vexing conundrum, a test of both imagination and morality, one that has become increasingly popular in our hero fiction of late: To kill or not to kill.

'The X Factor' episode 3: Your favorite audition?
After another two-hour audition episode of The X Factor, we’ve still met only a few truly promising future pop stars, if any. Sixteen-year-old high school freshman and Tourette’s sufferer Carlos Guevara (pictured, happily mauled) was by far the emotional highlight of tonight’s third installment — after explaining to the judges that “Sometimes I beep and yell and my body moves…the only thing that could help me was music,” he delivered a cover of John Mayer’s “Gravity” more remarkable for the teary-eyed reactions from the judges and Carlos’ devoted gaggle of friends than the power of the brave kid’s vocal.
