Review: Young Justice: Outsiders

  • Comicmix
Young Justice has two overlapping, somewhat rabid, fan followings. First, there are those who delighted in Peter David’s energetic take on the young adult team, which led to the animated series on Cartoon Network.

In the hands of former DC assistant editor Greg Weisman, Young Justice developed a very unique voice of its own, carving an animated continuity all to itself, enjoying two seasons on cable before vanishing. Weisman, Brandon Vietti, and their team were rehired by DC Universe to produce a 26-episode third season, dubbed Young Justice: Outsiders, which aired in two sections throughout 2019.

The entire season is now a four-disc Blu-ray set from Warner Archive so if you don’t want to spend for the service, you can see what you’ve missed. We pick up some two years after season two and Meta-human trafficking is rampant, with the people turned into WMDs. Meanwhile, the Un in

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker Reveals Rey's True Parents - Here's Who Plays Them

  • Popsugar
It looks like the cat's out of the bag: we finally learn the truth about Rey's parents in Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker (again). No, they weren't mere junk traders who sold her off for drinking money, as Kylo Ren said in The Last Jedi. Nope. In a retcon move from J.J. Abrams, Rey's parents chose to be nobodies, coming from a rather elite family in a galaxy far, far away. So, of course, their brief screen time should only be occupied by top-notch talent. Here's the scoop on Rey's heritage, plus a look at the actors who play her parents: two non-nobodies named Jodie Comer and Billy Howle.

So here's the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth: Rey is actually - drum roll please - a Palpatine. It's a contentious choice for sure, especially after Rian Johnson showed that anyone anywhere could wield the Force.

Every Major Cameo In Star Wars: The Rise Of Skywalker Revealed

In Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, J.J. Abrams delivers 142 minutes of unabashed fan service, and that applies not just to the movie’s numerous “corrections” to The Last Jedi’s more divisive developments, but also the film’s many cameos from various familiar faces and franchise favorites. And as we break down the most noteworthy figures to make an appearance, be warned that some major spoilers lie ahead.

One cameo we knew about long before the film’s release was Mark Hamill, who once more returns as Luke Skywalker both in flashback and in Force Ghost form. On the other hand, you may not have even noticed Warwick Davis, who was well disguised in the role of Ewok leader Wicket W. Warrick.

Meanwhile, actress Jodie Comer appears as Rey’s mother, and while The Rise of Skywalker serves as her Star Wars debut, you just might recognize her from

Will a Broadcast-tv Series Ever Again Win One of the Major Awards?

Even in a world of participation trophies, broadcast-tv is having a harder and harder time competing in the industry’s major award shows — to a degree that one might wonder if a network show or star, worthy though they may be, can ever break out again.

Among this week’s nominations for the 2020 Golden Globe Awards, ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox and The CW combined for exactly zero (0) nominations out of 55. The SAG Awards weren’t much kinder, with just one of 45 nominations going to a broadcast-tv series or actor — and that would be This Is Us‘ Sterling K. Brown.

‘Miss Bala’ Review: Gina Rodriguez Is All Bark and No Bite in Lifeless Crime Thriller

‘Miss Bala’ Review: Gina Rodriguez Is All Bark and No Bite in Lifeless Crime Thriller
Gina Rodriguez has star power in spades. That megawatt smile, radiant warmth, and killer comic timing made “Jane the Virgin” one of the most infectious comedies on television. She was surprisingly understated as foil to Natalie Portman in Alex Garland’s “Annihilation,” proving she has dramatic chops. But it took a cerebral sci-fi art film to tamp down the bubbly persona that makes her such an obvious fit for comedy. She has a magnetic screen presence that could carry the kind of genuine Hollywood romantic comedy audiences are so desperate for right now.

Why, then, is Rodriguez playing a helpless human trafficking victim in a hokey crime thriller when she should be reviving the rom-com? Unfortunately for “Miss Bala,” the fact that Rodriguez is entirely miscast is the least of this movie’s problems.

Directed by Catherine Hardwicke, “Miss Bala” is a remake of the 2011 Mexican film of the same name.

Box Office: Can Gina Rodriguez’s ‘Miss Bala’ Break ‘Glass” Streak?
Gina Rodriguez is taking on the unlikeliest of competitors this weekend — Super Bowl Liii.

The actress, best known for her titular role on the CW’s “Jane the Virgin,” is heading to the big screen for her first starring role in a studio film with “Miss Bala.” Sony’s thriller, based on the well-regarded 2011 Mexican crime movie, is hoping to entice moviegoers as Sunday’s primetime match between the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots draws fans outside of theaters. The biggest weekend in football tends to slow ticket sales in North America as people park themselves in front of television sets to watch the championship game.

With a primarily Latinx cast and crew, “Miss Bala” should have added appeal to Latinos, a demographic that tends to turn out in force at multiplexes. The drug-cartel drama is expected to generate between $6 million and $10 million when it opens in over 2,000 locations.

Is Elsie Fisher (‘Eighth Grade’) on her way to becoming the 3rd youngest Oscar nominee for Best Actress?

Is Elsie Fisher (‘Eighth Grade’) on her way to becoming the 3rd youngest Oscar nominee for Best Actress?
It has been a good couple of weeks for “Eighth Grade.” It was one of the top nominees at the Independent Spirit Awards, earning four bids including Best Feature and Best Actress (Elsie Fisher). And at the Gotham Awards for independent film on November 26 it won both of its noms: Breakthrough Director (Bo Burnham) and Breakthrough Actor (Fisher again). It’s early yet, but could Fisher be on her way to becoming one of the youngest Best Actress nominees in Oscar history?

Fisher plays Kayla Day, who is awkwardly coping with her last week of middle school. It’s one of the year’s most acclaimed films with an 89 on MetaCritic and a 99% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Fisher’s performance was singled out by many, including Ann Hornaday (Washington Post), who praised her “masterful command of vulnerability, anxiety, resilience and steadfast self-belief.” And Jake Coyle (Associated Press) called her a “remarkably natural young performer.

‘Eighth Grade’ Is the First Movie to Nail Youth Culture in the Digital Age
I keep reading that “Eighth Grade,” Bo Burnham’s captivating drama about a shy but intensely aware girl named Kayla (Elsie Fisher), who’s doing all she can to navigate her final week of middle school, is a movie that’s universal and eternal — one that captures the age-old zone of pimply bashful awkwardness that defines the moment of growing up, the moment when kids are teetering on the fault line between innocence and experience, childish dreaming and social networking, their identities stranded between two worlds. I don’t disagree with the praise; the movie is a minor marvel. Yet the bracing quality of “Eighth Grade,” the one that makes it pinpoint and artful, can’t necessarily be reduced to a common rite of passage that We Can All Relate To. A lot of folks who are showering the film with accolades sound like they want to feel younger than they are.

Film Review: The Artist’s Obsession in ‘Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti’

Chicago – The art masters, and the masterpieces they have created, become a background culture in our lives… even if we don’t necessarily know the artist. Paul Gauguin is one of those painters-as-cultural-influencer, and a vital point in his artistic life is told in the film “Gauguin: Voyage to Tahiti.”

Rating: 3.5/5.0

Vincent Cassel – best known to American audiences in “Ocean’s Twelve” (and “Thirteen”) – dives into the role of Paul Gauguin like a man possessed, and in many ways this was Gauguin’s most obsessive period. He left everything behind as a French painter to find his “artistic” self in Tahiti, and as many great masters do, paid the price. The story is fascinating and frustrating, much like the artist himself, but doesn’t project an understanding to the artist’s inner life or the Tahitian natives around him. This works as a lesson in being an artist over everything else,
