Hey guys!

Today we are taking a look at Dylan O’Brien as he gets ready to say goodbye to the show that launched his career and hello to being a new action hero.

Dylan O’Brien has played the character of Stiles, the best friend of newly bitten werewolf, Scoot McCall (Tyler Posey), on the hit MTV show Teen Wolf. Crystal Bell, mtv.com, sat down with O’Brien to discuss life without the show. “‘I’ll miss it dearly, always,’ he added. ‘It’s going to be weird. This is the first time I’m operating without that show to go back to, as a little home.’,” Bell writes.

In contrast, O’Brien is going ahead to star in the new film American Assassin along side actors like Scott Adkins and Michael Keaton. Amy Kaufman, latimes.com, talks about life for O’Brien after a previous accident on the set of another movie and him coming back to acting. “American Assassin” is the reason O’Brien emerged from his self-imposed exile. He’d signed onto the film just a few weeks before he began work on “Maze Runner: The Death Cure,” the third and final installment in 20th Century Fox’s post-apocalyptic young-adult franchise. He was hoping “Assassin” would mark the beginning of a new period in his career. In 2017, after six seasons, “Teen Wolf” would come to an end, as would the “Maze Runner” series,” explains Kaufman.

American Assassin comes out Friday, Sept. 15 and the series finally of Teen Wolf is expected to air on Sept. 24. I know I can’t wait for either. I will also be writing about the Teen Wolf finale so watch out for that one.

Hey guys!

It’s time for a little celebrity news in the form of Gigi Hadid.

Gigi is doing well in her clothing collaboration with Tommy Hilfiger. She currently has three collections with the fashion designer. Channing Hargrove, refinery29.com, tells of how the pervious collections we so well received that a third was a must. “The collection will be available on Tuesday, September 19, immediately after the show at Camden’s Roundhouse, so watch the model style, design, and literally rock the collection below to plot your shopping attack,” Hargrove writes.

 

In conjunction with this upcoming achievement, Gigi has been taking some heat from over on the other side of the world.

Victoria’s Secret has recently announced how its upcoming fashion show will be held in Shanghai, China for the first time ever, with Gigi Hadid among the many returning models.

Tracy You, dailymail.co.uk, goes on to talk about the controversy over a photo Gigi’s sister posted months ago on Instagram. “In the clip, which was later deleted, Gigi and friends can be seen at a restaurant, where several are singing Happy Birthday. Gigi holds up a cookie in the shape of the Buddha, then smiles and squints her eyes to imitate his face,” Tracy describes. Hadid has gotten thousands upon thousands of comments from people in China telling her, “Don’t come to Shanghai. You’re not welcome here. Screw off!”, and many more of the same.

Since, Gigi has made a public apology, but it has done little to smooth things over.

Hey guys!

Last night was the premiere of the new season of American Horror Story: Cult. My question for you is, did you join?

This season of AHS follows the aftermath of Donald Trump being elected as president and how this outcome affects the lives of two people to the extreme. On one hand you have Ally (Sarah Paulson), a woman who has many phobias and fears that with Trump as president her marriage to her wife and the child they have together will be threatened. She starts to see scary clowns that she believes are trying to kill her because her anxiety is through the roof due to the election results. On the other side is Kai (Evan Peters), a Trump supporter who is thrilled that he won the election and begins to start acting out in ways that are unacceptable to the public but he feels are now okay since Donald Trump is now president. Kai believes we should now be enticing fear into the public as a way to better control and protect them.

The first article written by Daniel D’Addario, time.com, tells of how AHS: Cult has hit the nail on the head of its portrayal. “His latest show is a masterful look at the assignment of blame and a reshuffling of our society that’s yet to resolve itself.,” said D’Addario.

Next is an article by Tim Stack, ew.com, citing how Ryan Murphy, one of  the creators of AHS sort of said all the seasons are connected. “Now AHS co-creator Ryan Murphy seems to confirm one theory that AHS is representing the 9 stages of hell,” Stack says.  Following this theory, Murphy mentions in an instagram post how this season, Cult, would line up with heresy. Heresy is basically the denial of the soul’s immortality.

If the first episode is any indication, the rest of the season is only going to get better. With some of my personal favorites like Colton Haynes and Emma Roberts to make appearances later in the season, you can bet I will be at my tv every Tuesday night.

Hey guys!

Everyone has heard of Will Smith. Maybe from music, movies, or television.

Ryan Reed, from rollingstone.com, writes about how the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air was in Blackpool, England for the Livewire Festival where he reunited with an old friend. “Will Smith and DJ Jazzy Jeff debuted a new song Sunday at the Livewire Festival in Blackpool, England. “Get Lit,” the duo’s first collaboration since 1998’s “Lovely Daze,” is an EDM rave-up filled with massive bass drops and synths,” Reed said. Hopefully there is a whole album in the works for the future.

Matt Davidson, ing.com, talks about the disappointment fans of the action movie Suicide Squad are about to encounter. “That’s according to Justin Kroll, film reporter for Variety, who reports on Twitter that Smith’s commitment to the upcoming Aladdin remake and Ang Lee’s clone assassin drama Gemini (also known as Gemini Man) mean that filming will not be taking place any time soon,” writes Davidson. Although it has yet to be officially announced that Smith will be returning for Suicide Squad 2.

I haven’t seen the first movie, but I am a bug Will Smith fan. He has a great career ahead of him where ever he goes.

Hey guys!

This week we are going to take a look at the buddy action comedy, The Hitman’s Bodyguard, starring Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds. The movie follows Jackson’s character, a professional assassin, as he is trying to make his way to testify against the corrupt president of Russia (Gary Oldman). When Interpol has a leak about Jackson’s whereabouts, the agent in charge taps an Reynold’s character, a triple A rated bodyguard, to keep him alive long enough to testify.

Paula Parisi, variety.com, writes an article that sheds light on the amazing soundtrack played throughout the movie. “The combination of Hughes’ classic song selections and Övarsson’s soulful score provides ‘depth and emotional direction’ for the story and characters that is rare in action movies, says Millennium Films music supervisor Selena Arizanovic.” Parisi writes. She later writes that perhaps the best of the song in the movie is one in which Jackson improvised for a scene. “‘I thought it was genuinely good. So one day when we were doing pickup shots I pitched Sam the idea of turning it into a legitimate song…'”.

Despite being the top grossing movie since it hit theaters, The Hitman’s Bodyguard has hit a snag. Ernesto, torrent freak.com, brought some insight that this movie has been pirated. “A few days ago several high-quality copies of the film started to appear on various pirate sites. While movie leaks happen every day, it’s very unusual that it happens just a few days after the theatrical release,” says Ernesto.

The movie has seen some bad luck. Although, with the upcoming holiday weekend, The Hitman’s Bodyguard is predicted to once again claim the top spot.

I love Ryan Reynolds and he was my number one reason for seeing this movie. In addition, I was laughing the entire time and can’t wait to see if Reynolds makes some kind of joke about this movie in the next Deadpool.

Hey guys!

A couple days ago I went to see the new Marvel movie, Spider-man: Homecoming. Admittedly a little late  At the perfect time because there wasn’t anyone else in the theater. Going into this movie, the one question that came to mind was, “How did this one rate compared to the previous spider-man movies. Naturally, I turned to the internet for the answer.

First up is an article from Kristy Puchko of cbr.com, a glowing review bring to attention the very part of this movie that makes it different than the other’s in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. “…director Jon Watts brings distinctive heart and humor to the MCU by keeping in focus what makes Spidey so different from the other Avengers: his double-life. Tony proudly proclaimed to the press he was Iron Man. For decades, Steve Rogers has been celebrated as Captain America,” said Puchko. She ends the article with a little praise for the director for pulling off the task of making a movie that fits in as an exciting summer blockbuster, but  not overshadowing a movie as big time as the Avengers.

Second is Daryl Deino’s article for observer.com, a review giving points to the obvious, being that Spider-man: Homecoming is one of this summer’s big hits, but pointing out that it doesn’t quite cut it compared to Toby Maguire’s second Spider-man movie from 2004. The conclusion drawn is that this Spider-man reboot has some trouble with certain story elements, “…it would be difficult to come up with a specific theme for Homecoming. However, the theme of Spider-Man 2 is clear from the beginning: With power comes great responsibility,” Deino said. Ending the review by making the comparison that this new Spidey movie, while not as good as the 2004 version, is better than Andrew Garfield’s portrayal of Peter Parker/Spider-man back in 2012.

All in all, it seems this new friendly neighborhood spider-man is here to stay and to keep you laughing. From someone who has always been partial to Toby Maguire’s version, I give it an A.
