Out on the home formats from this week is the brilliant Destroyer, a crime drama featuring a stunning performance from Nicole Kidman, who is virtually unrecognisable in the movie.

Drive-In Dust Offs: Silent Rage (1982)

What more can be said about Chuck Norris? The ubiquitous ’80s B star, he made a series of mostly bland actioners that would only come alive if the director brought a little something different to the table, because they certainly weren’t going to work with an actor who has the charisma of a constipated two-by-four. This brings us to Silent Rage (1982), a hybrid sci-fi/horror/kung fu effort that is quite effective when it pushes away from The Hairy One’s usual antics. You want to see Michael Myers karate chopped by Lone Wolf McQuade? Step right up.

Okay he’s not Michael Myers, but he may as well be; Pov shots and the unstoppable killer’s relentless gait definitely harken back to Halloween and even the previous year’s Halloween II in a bid for some of that sweet slasher bread. It worked well enough at the box office,

John Oliver Mocks Instagram Antics Of Mika Brzezinski, David Muir, Chris Cuomo On ‘Last Week Tonight’
John Oliver closed out his latest edition of Last Week Tonight mocking the Instagram antics of TV news talent, aka “people who already have outlets to express themselves.”

“An adult asking you to follow them on social media gives the same vibe as a clown asking you to join him in a sewer,” Oliver observed, after showing video of Fox NewsJeanine Pirro and others doing just that.

“If you choose to follow news anchors on Instagram, a whole world of sad wonder awaits you,” Oliver promised.

Some favor the conventional, like CNN anchor Anderson Cooper, who likes to post photos of himself with his dog. Oliver explained that’s a lot like people who post pictures of their children “except other people enjoy it too.”

CBS’s John Dickerson also posts photos of himself with his dog, but in his photos “he always winds up looking like a serial killer,

Zack Snyder Clowns Around With Jason Momoa In Justice League Bts Photo

Though Zack Snyder has gotten back into the filmmaking game, the guy sure has been enjoying sharing all kinds of interesting trivia pertaining to Justice League in recent memory. Sometimes, he may provide answers regarding things from Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice that have puzzled moviegoers for the past couple years, or he may declassify some cool pictures. Either way, he’s doing a fine job of keeping DC fans engaged.

When it comes to the topic of today’s discussion, it’s actually yet another photo, but it deals with a hero whom I believe stole the show in Jl, that being Aquaman. Sure, Arthur Curry may have had to share the screen with heavy hitters such as Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, the Flash and Cyborg, but he still made his mark – and proved to be a pain in Parademons’ asses along the way.

As has usually been the case,

First Look At Danneel Ackles On The Set Of Supernatural

No matter what your level of Supernatural fandom may be, there’s a reasonable chance you’ve heard the term “Spn Family” at some point. And while I myself may be a diehard viewer that’s been on board ever since the pilot episode originally aired, I admittedly take no part in the whole Tumblr thing. Still, it’s always great to see how a slice of fiction such as this little horror series that could has united folks the world over.

The latest round of news, however, looks at “Spn Family” from a different perspective because, well, we’re now to take it quite literally. As you may have heard, Danneel Ackles, wife of series star Jensen Ackles, will soon be boarding the show in a guest role. Set to play Sister Jo on a recurring basis sometime in the back half of season 13, she’s been described as

Macklin, you’ve done it again.

Former Parks and Recreation actor Chris Pratt posted the selfie to end all selfies Monday when he did his best Blue Steel while holding an FBI mug — a reference to his beloved character’s alter-ego.

31 underrated movies well worth a look

Simon Brew Aug 18, 2017

Looking for a film to watch, that you might not have considered before? Try some of these...

Sometimes, we figure, you come to a site like this just to find out about a film you didn’t know about. That you want recommendations of movies that you might not otherwise have uncovered. This list, then, has no theme, save that the films on it are really good, and didn’t get much of an audience first time around. That, or they seem to have been forgotten. It’s a real mix, but hopefully, there’s something on here that appeals..

The Brady Bunch films never really seemed to do much business in the UK, and that’s a real pity. No foreknowledge of the series is required, and the first movie takes the Brady film and transplants them into 1990s America, with no

Tiff to Host Kathryn Bigelow Retrospective

Zero Dark Thirty

Kathryn Bigelow’s highly anticipated follow-up to Jessica Chastain-starrer “Zero Dark Thirty” hits theaters in just under a month, but if you’re based in Toronto, you’ll be able to catch the director’s work on the big screen before “Detroit” opens August 4. Tiff — the organization behind the Toronto International Film Festival — is set to launch a retrospective of some of Bigelow’s biggest hits beginning July 12.

Set to run until August 15 at Tiff’s Bell Lightbox, “Kathryn Bigelow: On the Edge” will celebrate her “meticulous action craftsmanship and steely intensity,” a press release details. The retrospective “features the filmmaker’s work from her early days directing action-packed heist films to her critically acclaimed war films about the U.S. military.”

Bigelow is the only woman to win Best Director at the Oscars. She took home the award in 2010 for “The Hurt Locker,” a drama about a bomb squad in Iraq. The Best Picture winner is set to screen during “On the Edge” along with other titles such as surfer-heist action pic “Point Break” and “Near Dark,” a horror-western that centers on vampires.

Exclusive: How David Bowie Inspired ‘Great Comet’ Star Lucas Steele’s Tony-Nominated Performance

Exclusive: How David Bowie Inspired ‘Great Comet’ Star Lucas Steele’s Tony-Nominated Performance
To snag a Tony nomination for his first major Broadway performance (his debut was in the ensemble of 2006's The Threepenny Opera), Lucas Steele has made his way from small-town Pennsylvania all the way to the far reaches of outer space. When Steele’s character Anatole makes his dramatic entrance in Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, he does so from behind a wall of light and fog. “Like Close Encounters of the Third Kind,” Steele tells Et over the phone from backstage at the Imperial Theatre, where he’s between a suit fitting and a haircut, his coif dyed preternaturally blonde for the role.

“Otherworldly” is how the actor describes Anatole’s look, one Steele has adopted for the Broadway run of the musical he’s been with for five years, since its humble beginnings off-Broadway. Hardly anyone would disagree with that description, least of all Natasha, the naive ingénue whom Anatole seduces over the course

"With tremendous love and respect for each other, and the 18 years we spent together as a couple, we have made the decision to separate," Stiller and Taylor said. "Our priority will continue to be raising our children as devoted parents and the closest of friends. We kindly ask that the media respect our privacy at this time."

The couple, who met while filming a never-broadcast TV pilot called Heat Vision and Jack, tied the knot in May 2000 at an oceanfront ceremony in Kauai, Hawaii. "When I met her, I pretty much thought, 'That's the person,'" Stiller told Et in a 2007 interview. "It was like, 'Wow, this is a great person. I love her
