‘Unfriended: Dark Web’ Film Review: Horror Sequel Tosses Together Cache of Clichés

‘Unfriended: Dark Web’ Film Review: Horror Sequel Tosses Together Cache of Clichés
There’s a glimmer of a good idea in “Unfriended: Dark Web.” Unfortunately, it’s already been exploited, and to better effect, in 2015’s squirmily relatable “Unfriended.”

The latter cost a million bucks to make and took in $64 million, so you can see why horror shingle Blumhouse wanted to revisit the well. But this time, the bucket’s pretty dry.

The retread jettisons sociological insight for a grim and generally joyless journey that feels entirely obligatory. Where the first film tapped into the Internet’s unavoidable underbelly — cyberbullies, trolls, obsessive Fomo — the second never settles on a persuasive Pov.

If You Didn't Know Zoey Deutch's Mom Is Hollywood Royalty, You Need to Read This

If you've watched Netflix's sweet romantic comedy Set It Up, you might wonder why the frazzled aspiring journalist played by Zoey Deutch reminds you of someone you already know from Hollywood. In fact, she looks a lot like the mother in the Back to the Future trilogy and Tom Cruise's love interest in All the Right Moves. Well, that's because Deutch's mother is none other than, drum roll please, the iconic Lea Thompson!

Thompson has been in so many shows and movies over the years that it's hard to keep track of her highly productive career. Before movies and TV shows, her interest in the arts started with professional ballet training. After Thompson devoted years to the craft, a ballet instructor told her that she was good, but just "too stocky."

Thompson then switched gears to acting. She made her big-screen debut in

10 Reasons Why “Switched at Birth” Season 5 Is Its Best Season

We still feel as if Switched at Birth was switched off too early at only 5 seasons. Still, we appreciate what we’ve been given with this heartfelt and inspirational show. When Switched at Birth first premiered back in 2011, we weren’t exactly the biggest fans; but the show won us over episode after episode, and by the time the series finale came, it felt like we were already part of the family. Out of all those 5 seasons, we consider the fifth and final season to be the best one of the series. There were 10 episodes in that season;

Elizabeth Olsen: Netflix Isn’t Killing Cinema, It’s Helping Indie Films Find Their Audience

Elizabeth Olsen: Netflix Isn’t Killing Cinema, It’s Helping Indie Films Find Their Audience
This month at the movies includes a pair of Elizabeth Olsen-starring films, thanks to two features exploring decidedly different release strategies. Of course there’s this week’s big budget blockbuster, “Avengers: Infinity War,” which features the actress reprising her role as the powerful mutant Scarlet Witch, but last week also saw the release of Mark Raso’s “Kodachrome,” which premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival last year. The film, a low-key drama starring Olsen, Ed Harris, and Jason Sudeikis, was picked up by Netflix out of the festival.

Despite Olsen’s role in the billion-dollar Marvel Cinematic Universe, she’s stayed true to her indie roots over the years, continuing to worker on smaller films like “Wind River” and “Ingrid Goes West,” both of which debuted at Sundance last year. As the indie film distribution model continues to evolve and change, Olsen has become a staunch proponent

Quantico is back Thursday (10/9c) with a new showrunner, some new cast members and yet another reset of the ABC spy drama. (Don’t worry: There’s still just one timeline.)

At our last rendezvous with FBI/CIA agent Alex Parrish and her fellow elite spites, they’d just taken down a crooked president — in part by breaking the law, as well as faking Alex’s death. When she had to go into hiding afterward, sometime boyfriend/fellow G-man Ryan decided to chuck it all and get on the plane with her.
