Jason Momoa Performs Pantera’s ‘This Love’ With Phil Anselmo (Video)
It probably won’t surprise anyone that Jason Momoa — a.k.a. Khal Drogo, a.k.a. Aquaman — is a devoted metalhead. So when he showed up at The Forum in Los Angeles on Saturday night for Slayer’s farewell concert, he didn’t pass up the chance to sing a Pantera classic with Phil Anselmo.

Anselmo was one of the opening acts for the thrash metal legends, performing alongside his post-Pantera solo band, The Illegals. During the set, Momoa, who was attending the show with his two kids, joined him onstage while he was performing Pantera’s famous ballad “This Love” from their biggest album, “Vulgar Display of Power.”

See Slayer Perform ‘Angel of Death’ at Final Show of Farewell Tour

Slayer’s lengthy farewell tour and the thrash metal legends’ four-decade touring career came to an end Saturday with what was billed as the band’s final concert ever at the Forum in Inglewood, California.

Following the conclusion of “Angel of Death,” the last song of the final show, Slayer spent 10 more minutes onstage, with band mates hugging each other and taking one last photo of themselves together in front of a crowd. Bassist/singer Tom Araya and guitarist Kerry King then remained onstage as the crowd continued to shower them with applause and chants.

Notebook Soundtrack Mix #6: The New Hollywood Mixtape

  • MUBI
When I think about the American New Wave, I’m always traveling through the vast open roads of North America, its forever-changing landscapes and mythical American dreams, with all its bittersweet promise. Sonically speaking, I’m in that space, too. So much of the New Hollywood cinema is vast Americana; Death Valley and desert-hot gas stations, the ultimate nihilistic road movie. But so much of it is everywhere else too; sleek Manhattan apartment blocks, the old Wild West, and the outer regions of space. In my head it’s a mixtape of philosophical and artistic ideas, one of cinema’s counter-culture melting pots where more questions are raised than answered and the plot is not driven by a desire for resolution.This mix was dreamed up as a mixtape: driving across state lines, re-adjusting the radio station on the dashboard as the trip moves further towards a destination that is unknown.

‘Yellowstone’ Review: Season 2 Still Hasn’t Figured Out How to Trust Its Own Strengths

For a show that spends so much of its time weighing the consequences of the pain that humans can cause themselves, each other, and the world around them, “Yellowstone” can be pretty funny when it wants to be.

It’s one example of how, when the Paramount Network series hits pause on its tortured meditations on political power and leaden family drama, there’s a wealth of potential that lies just beneath the surface. Season 2 returns with a slightly better understanding of what it can do within its confines, but this is still a show with a mammoth to-do list. It’s a size befitting of the wide-open backdrop it’s set against and one that leads to a still-overstuffed drama of all kinds, even if more of it clicks after some time away.

NCIS: New Orleans Season 5 Finale Review: The River Styx, Part 2

Finally, there is a happy ending for Pride.

He was beaten and drugged within an inch of his life on NCIS: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 24.

But he came out the other side, decidedly the worse for wear.

The celebration at his bar echoed the ending on NCIS: New Orleans Season 4 Episode 24 when he went up to his apartment only to have three bullets pumped into him by Parsons.

This time around, fortunately, he just got the joy.

That isn't to say that Dwayne hadn't been through a hard few days.

The action picked right up after his capture by Apollyon at the end of NCIS: New Orleans Season 5 Episode 23.

Pride was being pumped full of mind-altering drugs by Walker's best pharmacologist so he could probe to find out what information about Apollyon that Dwayne had.

Hellboy Reboot Sequels Are Already Being Planned

Hellboy Reboot Sequels Are Already Being Planned
Next month Game of Thrones and Hannibal director Niel Marshall will unleash his new version of Mike Mignola's classic character Hellboy onto the masses in a theater near you and on your local IMAX screens. This new version of the Big Red One with the Right Hand of Doom is played by David Harbour - or as he's better known around these parts, Sheriff Jim Hopper from Netflix and The Duffer Brothers' hit series Stranger Things - and Milla Jovovich will join him as the film's villain, Nimue, the Blood Queen. This new big-budget, R-rated film hasn't even opened in a theater near you yet, and already it seems that the powers that be behind the scenes are planning for potential sequels. At least in a very "vague sense." To be a bit more specific, producer Lloyd Levin says:

How Wattpad Is Courting Streamers and Producers Worldwide With User-Generated Stories (and Data)

With studios like Disney and WarnerMedia hoarding content in preparation to launch streaming services, original content has become a priority among streamer’s attempting to build their subscriber base.

Hoping to capitalize on this trend is Wattpad, a text-based storytelling platform with more than 500 million user-generated stories and over 70 million users around the globe. The first fruits of Wattpad’s push into filmed content can already be seen: “Light as a Feather,” a supernatural thriller based on Zoe Aarsen’s episodic Wattpad stories that has gotten 3.3 million reads, debuted as a 10-part Hulu series last October — and last month got greenlit for a second season.

Sony Pictures Television last year announced plans to develop a series based on Katarina E. Tonks’ “Death is My Bff,” a story about a sarcastic Angel of Death who meets his match that garnered 92 million reads on Wattpad.

Manifest Episode 9 Review: Dead Reckoning

The fall finale of Manifest delivered excitement and more than a few surprises as secrets were revealed and losses were incurred.

TV

This review contains spoilers for Manifest.

Manifest Season 1 Episode 9

It’s good to know that Manifest is not afraid of tweaking its own formula as the show progresses. Although “Dead Reckoning” took out one of the show’s most relatable characters in Agent Vance, it also introduced the idea of dissent within the ranks of the Flight 828 passengers by giving us Autumn Cox, a wolf in sheep’s clothing. The secret of the callings is now more out in the open, for better or worse, and the fissure that has opened up in the Stone family really gives viewers something to stew on while they wait for the show to return in January.

This might be a good time to mention that the electroshock torture of the missing

Halloween: The Feminist Slasher Movie

David Crow Oct 18, 2018

The latest Halloween re-contextualizes the slasher genre with Jamie Lee Curtis' Laurie Strode forming its true unstoppable Shape.

This article contains major Halloween spoilers.

She appears behind him like a wraith; a shade; an unstoppable force. For the first time in perhaps 11 movies, Michael Myers is reacting with surprise. This isn’t how it’s supposed to go. Below him, one of the helpless Strode women who have been his victims du jour for 40 years (no matter the timeline) turned out to be not so helpless. Rather than weeping at the arrival of the very male Angel of Death, and his ever phallic kitchen knife, Karen (Judy Greer) feigned crocodile tears before blasting a hole the size of a golf ball in his shoulder. Only then comes the true ‘Shape’ of David Gordon Green’s Halloween reimagining: Laurie Strode.

Once the defining visage of victimhood in the horror subgenre of slashers,

Argentina Selects Luis Ortega’s ‘El Angel’ for Foreign Language Oscar Submission
Luis Ortega’s Pedro Almodovar-backed ‘El Angel,’ which premiered at Cannes and screens at this week’s San Sebastian Film Festival, has been selected as Argentina’s submission for consideration for the Academy Award for best foreign language picture.

Sold by Vicente Canales’ Film Factory, produced by Argentina’s K & S and and Pedro Almodovar’s El Deseo and co-produced by Argentine broadcast network Telefe – a quartet with previous Oscars clout – their film “Wild Tales” was nominated for best foreign-language feature in 2015 – “El Ángel” also marks a move into feature film production for Underground Producciones, one of Argentina’s foremost drama series production houses (“El Marginal”).

The film examines the teenage beginnings of Argentina’s longest-serving prisoner, the near-celebrity Carlos Robledo Puch. Dubbed the “Angel of Death” because of his age, baby face and angelic blonde curls, Carlos and his older friend from school, Ramón, started experimenting with petty crime when still in school,

Frank’s Got His Skull Vest On In Bloody Punisher Season 2 Set Pics

Frank Castle is undoubtedly the outlier of Marvel’s street-level heroes.

Whereas Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist attempt to clean up the streets of Hell’s Kitchen (and Harlem!) while still adhering to some sort of moral code, The Punisher‘s rage and animosity know no bounds, as Castle slaughters his targets one after another with deadly precision.

It’s part of the reason why Marvel and Netflix’s 13-part series was such a faithful rendition of the iconic anti-hero, and below, you’ll see yet more evidence that The Punisher season 2 is about to honor tradition. Front and center as New York’s Angel of Death is Jon Bernthal, who is once again wearing that iconic skull vest as he zeroes in on his prey. Oh, and it’s smeared in blood, just to drive the point home that Frank Castle is not to be trifled with.
