‘Thor: Ragnarok’ Gets Cosmic Reviews: ‘Who Knew a ‘Thor’ Movie Could Be This Wonderful?’

13 minutes ago

Reviews are in for “Thor: Ragnarok” — and so far, 36 critics who reviewed the film love it so much that it’s hit a 97 percent Rotten Tomatoes score. And so far, there’s just one negative review (which knocked “Ragnarok” off its previous 100% perch). “It’s an enthusiastic, hilarious reboot of the idea of what a Marvel movie can actually be, resulting in an effervescent, delightfully self-aware ride that was the most fun I’d had in a superhero movie in years,” The Verge’s Bryan Bishop wrote. “Who knew a ‘Thor’ movie could be this wonderful?” added Uproxx’s Mike Ryan. »

It wasn’t secondhand.

36 minutes ago

Sorry America, Clay Aiken has no plans to run for president. The former “American Idol” and “Celebrity Apprentice” star on Thursday shut down some left-field speculation by Christopher Ruddy’s conservative website Newsmax suggesting the out gay singer “could be president someday” and “has all the components of a successful run.” “I will not be available to run for President, as I have decided to retire to a small experimental colony on Venus where I am dedicating my life to growing prize winning space turnips,” Aiken told TheWrap exclusively in his typical tongue-in-cheek fashion.

‘One of Us’ Review: Breaking up With G-d Is Hard to Do

1 hour ago

The biggest issue facing the modern documentary is that there are too many documentaries. This complaint may sound silly or prosaic, but it’s true. Since its creation, the format has never been in such high demand. On streaming services, from Netflix to Amazon Prime to Hulu, documentaries are often the most played and downloaded. The audience is there, and so are the films. Complaining about an embarrassment of riches can only take you so far. The point is: where there’s endless choice, there’s endless mediocrity. Worthwhile stories that are hurried and unfocused, made by people with good intentions but not-so-good. »

‘NCIS’ Star Pauley Perrette Explains Her Twitter Hiatus Ahead of Show Exit

Jimmy Kimmel Slammed for Diabetes Punchline: ‘It Is an Illness Not a Joke’

1 hour ago

On Wednesday Jimmy Kimmel publicly thanked fellow television star Kelly Ripa for some cookies sent by the daytime host — but in the process included a bizarre remark about diabetes. “Thank you for the cookies @KellyRipa,” he said, adding, “You are sweeter than diabetes #KimmelinBrooklyn” Thank you for the cookies @KellyRipa – you are sweeter than diabetes #KimmelinBrooklyn pic.twitter.com/fywxdqvMI3 - Jimmy Kimmel (@jimmykimmel) October 17, 2017 I guess the joke was that the sweetness of her gift and the cookies would be worth the diabetes caused by the sugar intake, or something like that — needless it to say, it wasn’t his A. »

‘Wonderstruck’ Review: Todd Haynes Aims for Magic, But It’s Elusive

2 hours ago

Wonder can be a hard quality to capture on screen — and when you title a movie “Wonderstruck,” as Todd Haynes did with his gorgeous but problematic drama that screened on Thursday morning at the Cannes Film Festival, you may be all but promising something that’s difficult for even a filmmaker as gifted as Haynes to deliver. And no, “Wonderstruck” isn’t as magical as it would need to be to pull off the sleight-of-hand that Haynes is attempting. Jumping between two different time periods and several drastically different looks, including black-and-white silent-film sequences and gritty, overheated urban passages, the director. »

Mlb, Fox Are 2 Wins Away From Dream La v NY World Series

2 hours ago

Major League Baseball and Fox Sports are two wins away from having a dream New York-Los Angeles World Series, something that hasn’t happened since 1981. The New York Yankees can punch their ticket to the Fall Classic Friday night at 8 p.m. Et on FS1. The L.A. Dodgers have a chance to do the same tonight at 8:08 p.m. Et on TBS. If those particular pennant wins come to fruition, host network Fox gets the No. 1 and No. 2 media markets in the country for its season-ending best-of-seven series. It doesn’t get much better than that. (Though technically it could. »

Megyn Kelly’s transition from primetime to the more-humanizing morning television hasn’t exactly been a smooth one. “Maybe try dancing?” suggested absolutely no one. Well, the Fox News Channel alum gave it a whirl anyway on Thursday, and we all have Hoda Kotb to either thank or blame for the results. Warning: once you do look at this particular “Megyn Kelly Today” clip, you can never unsee it.

‘Killing of a Sacred Deer’ Review: Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell Get Dark and Freaky

2 hours ago

In the annals of 2017 Cannes Film Festival weirdness, “Jupiter’s Moon” gave us a Mexican immigrant who could fly after he was shot, “The Square” put Elisabeth Moss’ character in a perfectly normal roommate situation with a chimpanzee and “How to Talk to Girls at Parties” introduced Elle Fanning as an innocent alien falling in love with a punk-rock wannabe. And then along came Yorgos Lanthimos to say, “You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.” His film “The Killing of a Sacred Deer” started with a close-up of open heart surgery and ended with a horrifying scene involving duct tape, a shotgun, »

AMC Launches ‘The Walking Dead’ Vr App, Lets Viewers Become Walkers

This probably beats dressing up as a zombie for Halloween. With the Season 8 premiere of “The Walking Dead” coming up, AMC launched a new virtual reality app — aptly titled “AMC Vr” — on Thursday, giving users a chance to roam around as “walkers” in a four-part series based on the hit zombie show. And after the season premiere on Sunday, an extended 360-degree scene from “The Walking Dead’s” 100th episode will debut on the app, putting viewers alongside stars Jeffrey Dean Morgan and Seth Gilliam.

‘Only the Brave’ Review: Josh Brolin Firefighter Saga Digs Deep

3 hours ago

Wind, humidity and any number of other factors can transform a forest fire in unpredictable ways. And sometimes, movies like “Only the Brave” also find ways to stray from the path we’re expecting them to take. Based on Sean Flynn’s GQ article about the first municipal fire department to become an elite “hot-shot” squad sent in to extinguish huge and deadly forest fires, this film starts out so safely square (and square-jawed), that it feels like a World War II movie about a colorful squadron heading to Normandy. But as the story builds, these characters become richer and more complicated. »
