Justice League movie review: grab ’em by the fanboy

MaryAnn’s quick take… The cinematic equivalent of Trump and Brexit as awfulness brought upon ourselves. Incoherent and cheap-looking. There are no heroes, and everything is broken. I’m “biast” (pro): loved Wonder Woman, liked Man of Steel

I’m “biast” (con): …but not a fan of the other Dceu movies

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

These are the times that try woman’s soul. Trump. Brexit. Harvey Weinstein. Al Franken. (Really? Damn.) Global warming. Syria. Everything is awful. Everything is broken. Blake Shelton is People’s Sexiest Man alive? Christ, someone make it stop.

So it’s actually rather brilliant of Warner Bros and DC to fully embrace the everything-is-shit zeitgeist with a movie that just throws up its hands and agrees that the world and those in charge of it are garbage. Justice League is almost a meta exegesis of reality in

Gal Gadot Doesn't Want to Play Wonder Woman Forever
Gal Gadot has become synonymous with Wonder Woman, but it looks like the actress doesn't want to play the superhero forever.

Boo 2! a Madea Halloween Kills the Box Office with $21.6M

Boo 2! a Madea Halloween Kills the Box Office with $21.6M
Over the past few years, the third weekend in October has proven to be the most competitive, for whatever reason. This year, five new movies were ushered into theaters in wide release, one of which didn't make the top 10 (Same Kind of Different As Me in 12th place with $2.6 million), and one of which debuted in the top spot, Tyler Perry's Boo 2! a Madea Halloween. The horror-comedy sequel followed in its predecessor's footsteps as a modest box office hit, taking the top spot with $21.6 million, while the rest of its competitors managed to underperform.

The horror comedy sequel comes almost exactly a year after its predecessor, Boo! A Madea Halloween opened in theaters by taking the top spot at the box office with $28.5 million, in a crowded weekend where it beat three more newcomers, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back ($22.8 million), Ouija: Origin of Evil ($14 million) and Keeping Up With the Joneses

Can Madea's Boo 2 Kill Off Happy Death Day at the Box Office?
After earning more than five times its budget on opening weekend, the Blumhouse thriller Happy Death Day will have plenty of competition in its second frame, with the year's most crowded field to date, five new movies opening in wide release. Among the newcomers are Lionsgate's comedy sequel Boo 2! a Madea Halloween, Warner Bros.' disaster thriller Geostorm, Sony's biopic Only the Brave, Universal's The Snowman and PureFlix's Same Kind of Different As Me. We're projecting that writer-director-star Tyler Perry's sequel Boo 2 will follow in its predecessor's footsteps by taking the top box office spot in a crowded field, with $24.6 million.

The third frame in October has traditionally become the most crowded weekend of the year, which started in 2015, when four new movies hit theaters, The Last Witch Hunter, Paranormal Activity: The Ghost Dimension, Rock the Kasbah and Jem and the Holograms, although only the first two movies were

Isla Fisher Shares Hilarious PSA on How to Tell Her Apart From Amy Adams -- Watch!
Isla Fisher would like to let everyone know that she is not Amy Adams.

The 41-year-old actress stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Thursday, where she shared a hilarious PSA on how to tell her apart from the Oscar-nominated star.

"Hello, I'm Isla Fisher and I’d like to clear something up. I am not Amy Adams," Fisher began. "Amy Adams and I are completely different people. Let me explain. Amy Adams has auburn red, my hair is light auburn red. Amy Adams played Susan in Nocturnal Animals. I played Laura in Nocturnal Animals. Amy Adams has five Oscar nominations. I am a member of SAG."

Isla Fisher Recalls That Time Lady Gaga Mistook Her for Amy Adams - and How She Played Along
Isla Fisher has long been confused for Amy Adams — the two redheaded actresses, both two years apart in age and an inch apart in height, sharing a similar look. And though she has no problem making the correction, the 41-year-old Keeping Up with the Joneses star decided to play along with one confused fan by the name of Lady Gaga.

The actress and pop star came face-to-face at a Vanity Fair Oscar party, Fisher explained during an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! Thursday.

Watch The First Trailer For ‘Black Mirror’-Style Sci-Fi ‘Marjorie Prime’ Starring Jon Hamm

  • The Playlist
A few years on from the end of “Mad Men,” and Jon Hamm hasn’t quite hit movie star stratosphere in the way that some predicted for him. He’s been associated with some hits — “The Town,” “Bridesmaids,” but his occasional vehicles like “Million Dollar Arm” or “Keeping Up With The Joneses” never quite set the world alight, and he’s often seemed more interested in doing fun cameos on TV comedies than pursuing A-list film status.

Baby Driver movie review: common car-nage

MaryAnn’s quick take… Edgar Wright used to send up cinematic clichés with gusto and with huge humor. Here he just embraces them — and his sullen, unengaging hero — unironically. I’m “biast” (pro): love Edgar Wright’s early work

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

Baby Driver is so hot, so cool, so exciting! Well, the opening sequence is, at least, the one bit in the movie that actually feels like Edgar Wright directed it. Fresh-faced getaway driver Baby waits in the car and we do too while a bank heist is happening in the background. Haha! A heist movie that isn’t about the heist at all! This is the driver’s movie, and he’s only about the driving, and nothing else. Except the music. He is also about the music — the classic rock and pop and soul

In July, those other things could include season two of Insecure, season three of Ballers, the series premiere of Room 104, the Dr. Dre and Jimmy Iovine documentary The Defiant Ones, or an Andy Samberg double feature of the HBO original cycling comedy Tour De Pharmacy and Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping.

Exclusive: Jon Hamm Sets the Record Straight on Leaving Hollywood, Admits He ‘Overshared’ About Single Life
Jon Hamm’s not leaving Hollywood, at least not yet.

In a recent interview on Sunday Today With Willie Geist, Hamm admitted he still thinks about returning to teaching -- but he tells Et that doesn’t mean he’s leaving acting behind.

“You well know those things, you do an hour-and-a-half interview, and somebody pulls one sentence out of it and decides that's all they're gonna take away from it,” Hamm says. “I certainly never say never. It's a much less stressful job than this, although it has its own stresses. But I love teachers.”

After graduating college in 1993, Hamm worked as a middle school drama teacher in his hometown of St. Louis for a year.
