Buffy the Vampire Slayer's 25 Greatest Characters of All Time, Ranked

Buffy the Vampire Slayer's 25 Greatest Characters of All Time, Ranked
Nearly 20 years after Buffy the Vampire Slayer last aired, TVLine is raising the cult-classic series from the dead for a reevaluation of sorts. We’re not questioning whether it was as excellent as we remember — we’ve rewatched it often enough to know that it was. But we are wondering whether the characters that we liked the best… actually were the best.

To that end, we’ve singled out the 25 fictional individuals — Ok, and a grouping here and there — that we still think put the “super” in the supernatural. Among them are — well, duh — the title character, a heroine for

Ravi Dubey: I’m least productive when I am on social media

Ravi Dubey: I’m least productive when I am on social media
Actor Ravi Dubey is not a big fan of social media platforms. According to him, his productivity is reduced when he devotes too much his time to the internet.

"I feel every day that I have to disconnect from the social media world. Jaise ek sharabi ko sharab ki aadat lag jaati hai waise hi ab yeh social media ki kharab aadat lag chuki hai (I am addicted to social media just as an alcoholic is addicted to booze)."

"Also, I feel I am least productive when I am on social media. The social media time reduces my productivity. I am trying to spend less time on social media now. I have the intention to completely disconnect from the social media world, but it's become a necessary evil now," Ravi told Ians.

Ravi recently penned a poem titled "Aankde", which highlights the industry's obsession with box office numbers. During the lockdown,

Most Wanted Trailer: Josh Hartnett Unravels a Twisted Case of Entrapment

Most Wanted Trailer: Josh Hartnett Unravels a Twisted Case of Entrapment
Saban Films has released the trailer for Most Wanted. This is the latest from director Daniel Roby and stars comedian Jim Gaffigan alongside Josh Hartnett. The movie tells the real-life story of journalist Victor Malarek who unraveled a twisted drug deal that conspired to have the wrong man sentenced to 100 years in a Thai prison. As the trailer reveals, the story seems to make for something of an intense ride with high stakes.

The trailer kicks off with Josh Hartnett, who is playing Victor, investigating what is referred to as "Operation Goliath." Hartnett plays a little bit of hardball before receiving a warning that he shouldn't be printing anything about the case in question, which he chooses to ignore. We see that he is met with a great deal of resistance at every turn, yet determination takes over and the story is pursued anyway.

That seems to put a target on his back.

‘Promising Young Woman’ Blows Away Sundance by Taking On Toxic Masculinity (and Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’)

‘Promising Young Woman’ Blows Away Sundance by Taking On Toxic Masculinity (and Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’)
Writer-director Emerald Fennell’s debut feature, “Promising Young Woman,” drew an exuberant response at its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival Saturday night. The film, which will be released by Focus Features on April 17, is provocative — and will perhaps be divisive, particularly its ending. It’s a perfect talker for the #MeToo era.

It’s best for audiences to see “Promising Young Woman” cold, but the basic plot is that Carey Mulligan plays a 30-year-old woman named Cassie, who lives with her parents and works in a café. She dropped out of medical school for reasons that become clear as the plot unfolds. But what audiences see immediately is that Cassie’s side gig is going out to bars and appearing so drunk that a man will take her home — but to say what she does once they do would be a spoiler. (The movie’s tagline is “Take Her Home and Take Your Chances.

‘Promising Young Woman’ Review: Carey Mulligan Has the Time of Her Life in Fiery #MeToo Revenge Thriller

‘Promising Young Woman’ Review: Carey Mulligan Has the Time of Her Life in Fiery #MeToo Revenge Thriller
Cassie is a meticulous note-taker, keeping track of names and numbers in a tidy little notebook she keeps stashed under her bed. That’s for the best, because if someone happened to find said tidy little notebook and its list of men’s names and all those neat little hashmarks, they might get the wrong idea about what it all means. Cassie is done with people getting the wrong idea about things — mostly, she’s done with people getting the wrong idea about something as basic as empathy and humanity and respect — and her tidy little notebook is assisting her on that mission.

Thank both Fennell’s wicked mind and star Carey Mulligan’s somehow even more wicked performance for that: cooked up by Fennell (best known to American audiences for her go-round as the second season showrunner for clever spy hit “Killing Eve”) and dizzyingly embodied by an incendiary Mulligan,
