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

New trailer & poster for Cary Fukunaga’s ‘The Alientist’

TNT have released new artwork and a new trailer for their eagerly anticipated series The Alienist, which is based on the Anthony Award-winning international bestseller by Caleb Carr. Set in 1896 amidst a backdrop of vast wealth, extreme poverty and technological innovation, this psychological thriller stars Daniel Brühl (Rush), Luke Evans (The Girl on The Train), Dakota Fanning (American Pastoral) and Brian Geraghty (The Hurt Locker).

The Alienist opens when a series of haunting, gruesome murders of boy prostitutes grips New York City. Newly appointed police commissioner Theodore Roosevelt (Geraghty) calls upon criminal psychologist (aka alienist) Dr. Laszlo Kreizler (Brühl) and newspaper illustrator John Moore (Evans) to conduct the investigation in secret. They are joined by Sara Howard (Fanning), a headstrong secretary determined to become the city’s first female police detective. Using the emerging disciplines of psychology and early forensic investigation techniques, this band of social outsiders set out to

The Killing Of A Sacred Deer – Review

Review by Stephen Tronicek

Yorgos Lanthimos seems to have one goal in mind and that is to open the collective hood of society and its institutions and slowly rip all of the parts out of it. In doing so, he creates nightmares for the modern age. How can we really know what love is when society is always insistent that it must be one thing, rather than the many that it is? What happens to the rigidity of societal values when they are matched up against the reality of the human condition? These two questions have been asked multiple times by Lanthimos and his writing partner Efthymis Filippou, mostly to comedic effect, and always excellently. You’d be hard-pressed to find a better run of films from two people other than the Coen’s, with Dogtooth, The Lobster, and The Killing of a Sacred Deer defining the careers of Lanthimos and Filippou.

Hostile review: A woman must survive a night in a desert after a car crash, but she’s not alone.

Hostile review by Kat Hughes.

Hostile Review

Post-apocalyptic worlds have become a staple of both film and television. We’ve seen just about every story possible take place under this guise, but director Mathieu Turi may just have found a new story to tell within its confines. Juliette (Brittany Ashworth) is out on a scouting mission when she finds herself trapped alone in the barren desert. Society has crumbled, the majority of the population having been wiped out by a worldwide epidemic. The new world landscape is littered with cannibals and strange aggressive creatures with a disliking of light. After staying out later than she should, trying to salvage much needed supplies, Juliette takes a shortcut across the desert and ends up in a car wreck. Realising that her leg is broken,

'Te Ata': Film Review

'Te Ata': Film Review
That it was produced by the Chickasaw Nation signals that the film about famed Native American performer Te Ata will be nothing less than worshipful. This gauzily photographed biopic certainly fulfills its mission of educating audiences about its culturally important but little-known central figure. Unfortunately, the film too often comes across as saccharine, lacking the steeliness that its subject must have possessed to have accomplished as much as she did. Te Ata ultimately feels more suitable for classroom than mainstream consumption.  

Nonetheless, the film tells a fascinating tale. Te Ata (Q'orianka Kilcher, The New World), born Mary Frances Thompson...

Film Review: ‘Te Ata’

Film Review: ‘Te Ata’
The life and career of Te Ata, the Native American trailblazer who celebrated her people’s culture through performance and, in doing so, helped educate the country about Native traditions, is undeniably uplifting. But the well-intentioned biopic is ungainly, overtly articulating everything it doesn’t need to yet failing to explain much of what starts out as unclear about the tale. Lacking both fluidity and complexity, “Te Ata” is a functional but one-note tribute told through educational storytelling that, unlike its subject, doesn’t manage to inspire.

Director Nathan Frankowski and writer Esther Luttrell sabotage their work’s momentum from the start. In a 1906 opener, a young Mary Frances Thompson (Boriana Williams) narrates origin myths about her Chickasaw nation — located on land that would eventually become Oklahoma — while her father T.B. (Gil Birmingham) and her uncle, Chickasaw governor Douglas Johnson (Graham Greene), discuss their tribe’s rapidly changing political future. It’s a clunkily assembled introduction,

Julie Taymor to Adapt Gloria Steinem’s Memoir

Steinem: Gage Skidmore

In what sounds like fan fiction dreamed up by feminist film lovers, word has come that Gloria Steinem’s memoir, “My Life on the Road,” is being adapted for the big screen. And Julie Taymor and Tony-nominated playwright Sarah Ruhl are taking it there. Deadline broke the news that the former will direct the feminist activist’s coming-of-age story and the latter will pen the screenplay.

The film, hailing from June Pictures, will chronicle “Steinem’s growth into a galvanizing symbol for equality, with a focus on the surprising encounters along the road that helped shaped her,” the source writes.

Taymor is perhaps best known for directing Broadway sensation “The Lion King.” Her screen credits include “Frida” and “Across the Universe.” “In the Next Room” and “The New World” are among Ruhl’s stage credits. This project marks her debut as a screenwriter.

In addition to directing, Taymor is also producing alongside Lynn Hendee (“Ender’s Game”) and June PicturesAndrew Duncan and Alex Saks. Steinem and Amy Richards (“Woman with Gloria Steinem”) are serving as executive producers.

“I can’t imagine anyone more magical than Julie Taymor — or more understanding than Lynn Hendee and Sarah Ruhl,” said Steinem. “So now that we are on this journey together, I hope and believe the result will encourage many more travelers — especially women in all our diverse realities — to tell our own stories.”

Taymor added, “When I read the book, it demanded that it be a film. It’s so vividly cinematic, with entertaining and complex characters and, like Gloria herself, also witty and provocative. From reluctant spokesperson to a beacon of positive change, hers is a singular journey — an American leader who can speak to us all.”

“My Life on the Road” was released in 2015. Steinem’s other books include “Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions,” “Revolution from Within: A Book of Self-Esteem,” and “Doing Sixty & Seventy.” Along with Jane Fonda and Robin Morgan, Steinem co-founded the Women’s Media Center, an organization that works towards making women more visible in media. She also co-founded Ms. magazine.

Last year Steinem debuted “Woman with Gloria Steinem.” The weekly Viceland docuseries is hosted by Steinem and highlights the work of a team of all-female journalists reporting stories about women and men who fight against gender-based violence. The first season concluded last June. No word yet on whether “Woman” will receive a second season.

Other upcoming female-led projects about pioneering activists to look forward to include Julie’s Dash’s biopic of civil rights leader Rosa Parks and Brie Larson-starrer “Victoria Woodhull,” a portrait of the first woman to run for president of the United States. Woodhull represented the Equal Rights Party.

Julie Taymor to Adapt Gloria Steinem’s Memoir was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story.

Super Mario Run Gets a Major Update Next Week

Super Mario Run Gets a Major Update Next Week
Nintendo's Super Mario Bros. game Super Mario Run is about to get a major update next week that will include new levels, new gameplay, and add Princess Daisy as a playable character. Super Mario Run was the first time that the Nintendo mascot had ventured away from the Nintendo hardware and on to smart phones, starting with the Apple iPhone. The game followed the enormous success of Pok&#233mon Go, which was the first Nintendo game to make it on to the smart phone market and became an instant worldwide sensation that got players off of the couch and into the community to hunt for fictional monsters.

Super Mario Run was met with high anticipation and for the most part, the limited gameplay platform succeeded, but many would-be players balked at the $10 price tag for a game that one could beat in its entirety in a few hours. The game is available for free,

Trailer Watch: A Native American Woman Takes to the Stage to Tell Her Story in “Te Ata”

Te Ata”: The Chickasaw Nation

“What do you have to say?” a professor challenges college student Mary Thompson Fisher aka Te Ata (Q’orianka Kilcher, “The New World”). “What stories do you have to tell? What could you show me that I haven’t seen before?” These questions prompt Te Ata, a member of the Chickasaw Nation, to write and star in a play about the Chickasaw culture and people. And that’s just the beginning.

As a new trailer for Nathan Frankowski’s “Te Ata” hints, the titular character’s college play is the first of many successful turns onstage. She stars on Broadway, tours across the U.S. and even performs for President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. However, Te Ata and her family still encounter violence and prejudice, even as her success as an actress and performer grows.

The young woman even faces resistance from her own father (Gil Birmingham, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt”), who can’t understand why Te Ata is so adamant about leaving home. “I have to go so that I can tell our stories,” she explains.

Te Ata’s journey to find her true calling led her through isolation, discovery, love, and a stage career that culminated in performances for a United States president, European royalty, and audiences across the world,” the film’s official synopsis summarizes. “Yet of all the stories she shared, none are more inspiring than her own.”

Written by Esther Luttrell (“Lithium Springs”), “Te Ata” co-stars Cindy Pickett (“Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”), Brigid Brannagh (“Army Wives”), and Mackenzie Astin (“Scandal”).

Te Ata” will open in Oklahoma theaters on September 29 and hit NY and La October 13 with additional cities to follow. Check out the film’s new trailer and poster below.

‘Woman Walks Ahead’ Review: Jessica Chastain Stars in a Paint-By-Numbers Biopic — Tiff

‘Woman Walks Ahead’ Review: Jessica Chastain Stars in a Paint-By-Numbers Biopic — Tiff
Is a film still considered a “white savior” story if its white protagonist never actually saves anything? In the case of Susanna White’s “Woman Walks Ahead,” it’s certainly not for lack of trying. A listless but lustrously shot biopic about the 19th century New York widow who traveled to North Dakota, painted the Sioux chief Sitting Bull, and then served as an advocate for his tribe as they fought the United States government’s attempts to expropriate their land, the movie almost credits Catherine Weldon as being solely responsible for the Native American resistance to the Dawes Act. Moreover, it also forgives her role in the massacre that followed. On their own, those issues are more frustrating than fatal. As a self-contained story, however, the film suffers enormously from its slippery grasp of history, all of its narrative thrust slipping through the cracks between fact and fiction.

Review: ‘Hostiles’ Is One of the Most Brutal Westerns Ever Made, but Hardly One of the Best — Telluride

Review: ‘Hostiles’ Is One of the Most Brutal Westerns Ever Made, but Hardly One of the Best — Telluride
Hostiles,” a sturdy and characteristically brutal new Western from “Black Mass” director Scott Cooper, begins with somebody shooting a baby — that’s not a spoiler, just a warning. The year is 1892, and a settler named Rosalee Quaid (Rosamund Pike) is teaching her young daughters about the magical power of adverbs. Suddenly, their New Mexico homestead is raided by a band of Comanche renegades. They murder her husband, they shoot her two girls, and they fire a bullet directly into her infant son; Rosalee carries the lifeless bundle in her arms for days, because it’s that kind of movie — the only kind that Cooper knows how to make.

A few clicks south, Cavalry Captain Joseph Blocker (Christian Bale, broiling with his usual rage) is treating his Cheyenne prisoners with a similar degree of savagery. The point couldn’t be clearer, even though “Hostiles” spends the next 130 minutes underlining it with

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star (Nintendo Switch) Review

I absolutely love Musou/Dynasty Warrior-like games. The pure chaos of the battlefield, coupled with intense, unrelenting action, has always been a way for me to blow off some steam. Viciously destroying hundreds, if not thousands of enemies over and over can do that that for you. In Marvelous and Xseed Games’ newest addition to the Fate series, Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star, that intense combat and convoluted, (if not stylishly nonsensical) storyline comes to the Nintendo Switch, meaning gamers get a chance to not only experience a solid Musou game on Nintendo’s hot new system, but have fun while doing it.

Fate/Extella: The Umbral Star is the third game in the Fate series, but only the second to be released outside of Japan. It originally hit the PlayStation 4 and Vita in January, but has now found a home on the Nintendo Switch. The story follows the aftermath of the Holy Grail War,

Old School Kung Fu Fest Returns with a Kick-Ass Look at the Wonder Women of Martial Arts

Old School Kung Fu Fest Returns with a Kick-Ass Look at the Wonder Women of Martial Arts
August can be a miserable time to go to the movies, and it’s almost always a miserable time to be in New York City. But, for at least one glorious weekend this month, neither of those time-honored facts will be true. Beginning on Friday, August 18, Subway Cinema’s Old School Kung Fu Fest returns to The Metrograph theater in lower Manhattan for another incredible weekend of flying courtesans, iconic sword fights, and even a little pistol action for people who like their body-chops and dropkicks with some bullets on the side.

Capping off a female-driven summer movie season that kicked off with “Wonder Woman” back in early June, the seventh edition of this deeply beloved fest is devoted to the “Wonder Women of the Martial Arts,” and it boasts some of the fiercest ladies to ever leap over an unsuspecting henchman.

’24’ Could Return Again — But As An Entirely Different Kind of Show, Fox Execs Say

’24’ Could Return Again — But As An Entirely Different Kind of Show, Fox Execs Say
If the “24” clock ticks again, it will be for very different reasons.

Fox executives confirmed Tuesday that executive producer Howard Gordon and Imagine TV’s Brian Grazer are kicking around completely new ideas for the real-time format that shifts away from its roots. A new version won’t likely focus on the show’s bread-and-butter terrorism and potential apocalypse storylines.

The decision to rethink the “24” universe comes after Fox opted not to bring back revival “24: Legacy” for another season. “24: Legacy” was pitched as a limited series, but might have continued had ratings been higher.

Fox TV Group chairman Dana Walden said “24: Legacy” still succeeded in giving viewers “a taste again” of the “24” franchise, and “whetted their appetites. We’re exploring where the next version might live.”

Walden said Gordon and Grazer “have an exciting idea that was very compelling, but we’re in the early stages.”
