TV Recap: AMERICAN HORROR STORY FREAK SHOW "EDWARD MORDRAKE PT 1"

TV Recap: AMERICAN HORROR STORY FREAK SHOW "EDWARD MORDRAKE PT 1"
By: Suepafly

The medical community has always been fascinated by freak shows. At the morbidity museum they not only embrace the differences, but celebrate them. Dr. Sylvestor Mansfield introduces his bright new assistant Maggie Esmerelda. She looks at one specimen in pity. Dr. Mansfield believes that the the specimen was a loser in life, and at least in death they have value. One of his specimens are brought into questions, as are his medical credentials. The curator tells him that they're obviously creative people, and if they bring her some truly authentic specimens then she would happily take them. She use to get calls from actual freak shows when one of their passed, selling the bodies to her museum, but there are few freak shows left in the country. The liver of a pair of conjoined twins alone brought in $5000.00. Mansfield and Esmerelda plot to head to Florida where one of the few freak shows remain to make their fortune.



It's Halloween, and one pretty fairy princess is terrified of clowns, and with good reason. The curfew is still in full effect, even though the cops claim to have caught the killer. Jesse spots twisty and runs to her mother, but she thinks there's nothing scary about clowns. She hasn't had the pleasure of spotting Twisty.

Ethel visits her doctor, and he has bad news. She has cirosis of the liver. She hasn't touched alcohol since Jimmy was born, but the doctor says that she may have had it for a long time. Worse, she doesn't have much time left, the prognosis is six months to a year. There is little that she can do beside avoiding meat, and all alcohol. The doctor is very sorry to have had to deliver the news. Ethel sheds tears, not over her dying, but because he is the first person to treat her with respect.

The Freak show is its normal rowdy atmosphere. Jimmy returns after digging Meep's grave. He sees all the performers as children that he cannot protect. Dot yells at them for being disrespectful, and suggests that they dedicate the evening show to Meep. But Halloween is the quietest night of the year at the freak show. They never perform on Halloween because of Edward Mordrake.


He was a handsome man, could have been a duke or something if things had been different, but Edward had an ugly, evil face on the back of his head. The face would whisper things to him, things only he could hear. Edward tried in vein to kill the other face, but it would not die. His family eventually committed him, but that left him alone, confined with only the face whispering to him. He tried to write poetry, anything to keep his mind off the whispers beckoning him to do bad things, but it didn't help. Eventually he slaughtered his guard, and ran off to the Freak Show. They billed him as the two faced prince. He would delight the crowds with his graceful piano skills and then he would take a bow and reveal his other face. There was no one like Edward, and he wasn't happy. One Halloween Edward snapped and murdered every freak in the troupe, and then he hung himself. In his death the second face was still smiling. They don't perform out of respect, but fear. Those who perform summon the spirit of Edward Mordrake, and he doesn't leave until he takes a victim with him.

Jimmy is upset over Ethel's story, scaring everyone, but she has experienced his presence at another show where they were made to perform on Halloween. The human cannon ball died a horrific death and his face had an eerie smile just like the second face of Mordrake. Jimmy confronts Ethel about her drinking. She'd sworn off the stuff for so long, and her sudden drinking has him worried. He wonders if its because of Dell, and its not. She's glad that there is a man around, so that Jimmy is now free to leave like he's been asking to do.

At Casa de Crazy, aka the Mott residence, Gloria prepares for a glorious Halloween. Everything is set in place for her psycho brat Dandy. The poor house keeper, Dora, is forced to dress as Woody Woodpecker. Dandy can't wait to go out trick or treating to terrorize the neighborhood, but his mother reminds him that he can't with the curfew still in effect. Gloria has Dora bring out Dandy's costume, but he throws an epic tantrum when he sees that its Howdy Doodie. She rushes out to find him something else. Gloria may be doting, but Dora isn't putting up with his crap, and leave him amiss the mess that he's made. He takes his costume, and refashions it into a clowns.

The freaks gather to put Meep to rest. Halloween was always his favorite holiday. It was the one day that he felt like he could be one of the normal kids. But he wasn't like them, he was better. They pass around a bag, everyone taking an item out of it, they're chicken heads inside. They throw the heads in and pour alcohol on his grave to help send him off, and lay him to rest.

A yellow cab pulls up to the freak show. Jimmy heads out to send it away, the show is closed. But the newly blonde and no longer mousy Esmerelda tells him that she's there for a job. Again he tries to sends her away, thinking she doesn't belong, but she won't be deterred. She's come a long way, and she's a fortune teller.

Bette and Dot sit on an operating table. Bette cries that she never agreed to this, but Dot tells her that she's the one with the talent, and now a man wants to marry her. Bette thinks that he'd only love her because she was different, but Dot is willing to take the chance to be rid of her sister. Bette wakes Dot from her dream. She experienced it too, but it was a nightmare to her. She asks Dot if she'd miss her, because Bette would miss Dot when she was gone. Sometimes Bette wonders who Dot is especially since they've come to the show. Dot is a determined person. She plans to save her money and find a doctor who can perform the surgery to separate them. One of them will die, but one of them will have a chance at happiness.

Jimmy goes to Elsa about the fortuneteller. She's not a gypsy he says, but Elsa is the one that will determine her gift. Esmerelda is brought in to perform, she claims that she didn't chose it, the gift chose her. As Esmerelda prepares her reading she takes a quick look around for clues. Esmerelda tells her that she can only do the reading if she's receptive. Esmerelda talks about misdeeds, and greed ruining her past. Someone stole her spotlight in the past, and Elsa perks up. Esmerelda feeds her more information. Elsa can become the star of her dreams once more, a man with piercing eyes can help her become a star. Esmerelda falls to the ground, spent after her reading, and Elsa hires her.

Dell pumps some weights, as his wife Desiree prances around in a new costume. He doesn't want to take part in the alcohol consumption, needing to stay focused. Desiree rubs up on him, and at first he's receptive, but things soon get limp. Desiree is tired of it, and Dell doesn't take her rejection well. She should be grateful for all that he's done for her, but she warns him not to put his hands on her, or she'll leave forever.

Dell has a run in with Ethel outside. Ethel saw the three breasted Desiree run out. Dell barks over Desiree, but Ethel tells him to calm down, and have a drink with her. She needs to talk to him anyways. She asks what the fight was about, but he doesn't want to talk about. She asks what their problem was. He says the beard for starters, but they were together long before she had Jimmy. He starts out harsh, that men will jump on anything, and then gets a little softer. He could have been a better father. She reminds him that he can never let Jimmy know that he's Jimmy's father. They once thought about having a cookie cutter life, but Ethel knows that they would have never lasted. She's dying, and she wants Dell to look after Jimmy, help him make something of his life. Dell had been wondering what his life had been like if he had stuck around to watch Jimmy grow up. He asks what Jimmy like to dress up like as a kid. He always wanted to be the same thing, a soldier.

The tiny lady pops out of a pumpkin scaring the amazon. It's Halloween night at the freak show. Someone walks down the stairs, humming. He looks at knives, its Dandy in his clown costume, and there's about to be another killer clown on the loose in Florida. He raises the knife at Dora who is busy dusting, but she doesn't think is threat is real. She knows all about the dead animals, she even told hia mother about them. She raised him and she isn't afraid of him. She asks if he killed the people, but knows that he didn't. He wants so badly to be a serial killer, but isn't quite there yet. Dandy unmasks and raises the blade at Dora. He hates her, and she hates him too, but he doesn't strike her.

Esmerelda calls Mansfield, and she's gotta cut out. She can't deal with all the freaks. They wig her out. She tells Mansfield about the twins that she ran into. They were upset that she was back behind the tents with Jimmy as he brought her to her new digs. She tried for friendly, offering them a reading, but Dot was less than pleased seeing her. Mansfield's eyes light up with dollar signs at the mention of the twins. Jimmy sits outside of the phone booth listening. Mansfield plots the murder of the twins, and just how he plans to store the body. He'll meet up with her after he handles his business, which happens to be a demon horned beefcake. A cop comes to give Jimmy some trouble. There's a curfew, and he's out after dark, but they still have a few minutes before the curfew goes into effect. Esmerelda puts her pretty looks to good use, telling him that she was just calling her grandmother, and promising to hurry home. The cop gives her some advice, to stop hanging around with trouble makers. Esmerelda diffuses the situation, and off the pair ride.

Mansfield taunts his viking God. He's missing a sword he tells the stud. He orders him to take off his pants, and Thor may have signed on for more than he can handle.

Little Jesse's mother and her friend have some drinks after curfew and a long day of trick or treating. They don't notice that they aren't alone. Jesse's brother Mike continues to be a jerk. He's willing to let her have some of his candy if she calls him master and to do all of his chores for a week. Twisty has the girl's back though. Mike screams, and his mother and her friend rush in, but its too late. Twisty took the punk brother.

Dot continues to berate Bette. The amazon doesn't think even rehearsing is a good idea, worried that they'll summon Mordrake's ghost. Elsa arrives in full costume. She tells them to get off the stage. The fortuneteller told her that a man would soon arrive to reignite her career, but the twins have let their good fortune go to their heads. They want to renegotiate their salaries, since they are now the headliner. Elsa warns them against getting ahead of themselves, reminding them that she can dump them back in the swamp that she found them in. Elsa performs Lana del Rey's Gods & Monsters as a man walks out of the green fog. Elsa thinks its the man that Esmerelda spoke of, but it isn't. Its Mordrake that she's crooning to, and he's transfixed by the image onstage. Elsa takes a bow, but her mystery man has disappeared.

The evening is quiet at the freak show. Ethel prepares for sleep, but is spooked by Mordrake. He's not really there. She sees another ghost. It's a large woman stabbed through the heart. The eerie green fog rolls around. Mordrake introduces himself. She tells him that she didn't summon him. It doesn't matter who summoned him, only that they were summoned. He will stay until they have a new companion. Ethel doesn't want to go yet, she has so much to do. Mordrake argues with his worse half. It isn't up to him who lives or who dies, but up to that evil little face. Ethel goes to face Mordrake. He questions her. She was not always in her current state. It's true. She once had a real act. She surrounded herself with the prettiest girls, and then dare the crowd to look at anyone except her. The crowd loved her, and she loved Dell. He became her manager, and he convinced her to leave her big act. He billed her separately, and without the laughs. No one enjoyed it. Mordrake feels sorry for her, but he digs deeper. He wants her deeper pain. She delves deeper. They were penniless, and she was pregnant. She couldn't find work in her condition, so Dell arranged a different kind of performance, a live freak birth. People gathered around her in a field. She gave birth next to a tree. The baby was born with lobster hands, and Dell tried to sell the option to even hold a freak baby. Poor Jimmy was exploited right from the start. Mordrake rises, offering her his handkerchief. The other ghost freaks surround her, and Ethel is ready to join them. She thinks that she deserves it, but she is not the one.


The girl and young boy still sit on the bus. Dressed in his new clown costume, Dandy comes in and tries to mimick Twisty. He offers them a trick or treat, and when they go to the offered candy, Dandy stabs at them, but his knife isn't long enough. He finds a stick, to make the blade longer, but before he can use his new weapon he hears Twisty approach. He rushes out to meet his demented friend, who carries his latest prize. Dandy lights up at the opportunity for more fun.

TV Recap: #GRIMM "THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES"

TV Recap: GRIMM "THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES"
By: Suepafly

Grimm is back tonight, and if you've been watching my twitter feed you know that I've been anxiously awaiting the Grimmiere. It's finally here, and maybe just maybe the writers won't be too mean and answer some of the cliffhangers. Just how permanent is Nick's grimmlessness, will Renard survive, and will Wu ever come into the light and know about Wesen?



Captain Renard is rushed into surgery. Hank gets the news where the Captain is, but nothing on his condition. The shooter didn't know Trubel was a Grimm until he vogued, which gave her time to grab the machete and behead him and probably saved Renard's life. Trubel has no clue what was in the vial only that Renard told her that Nick had to drink it to undo Adalindd's spell. As a hexenbeast, her spell is likely permanent, and Juliette drops the bomb that Adalindd also used a spell to look like her and sleep with Nick. I get she's pissed, but her anger is misplaced. Nick had no clue. If it looks like a duck, walks and talks like a duck, how did he know he wasn't suppose to diddle the duck, well Juliette, but you know what I mean. The street is closed off, and Trubel wants to turn around, but they have to face the heat eventually. Hank tells the group that if they're going to lie, and really they have to then they need to be telling the same lie.

A man has a flash of memories. Military mixed with science. He approaches a house, Henry Slocum's. Henry doesn't know Dr. Anderson, but he's familiar with his name, a friend of a friend. He's always spoken highly of. He has some bad news, Danny has been in a terrible accident. He was in town and didn't think it appropriate to deliver the news over the phone. He vogues into an octopus man, and sucks face with Henry. Poor guy, that has to well...suck.


The doctors continue to work on Renard. Our poor Captain does not look good.

Trubel worries that she's going to be arrested. Wu reads Trubel's book when he's told that Nick and Hank have arrived. Wu recognizes Trubel, and she says that she was staying with Nick. Wu thinks that its a good thing that she wasn't there, but Nick clarifies that she was, and that she was the one who beheaded the attacker. Nick and Hank get a good look at the crime scene. The body has already been identified as Weston Stewart, but a passport with a different name and a whole lot of Euros was found on the body. He wasn't planning on sticking around after gunning down the Captain. Wu asks if Teresa was staying in the guest room, and Nick says that she was. Wu asks about the book, and Nick tells him that its his. The working detectives question Nick and Hank. They stick to their story, Poge and Meecham head out to question Teresa, but the FBI arrive. Teresa is freaked out, and her first instinct is to run, but that's not an option.

Anderson continues to suck at Henry's face drawing memories out of him. He gets the memories of Alexandra, his girlfriend from him, as well as those of involving his classified work. With the memories extracted, he leaves Henry on the ground, but Alexandra comes home early. She was suppose to be in Paris. With Henry on the ground, Alexandra runs to his aid, but he doesn't recognize her. She tries to get away from Anderson but he attacks her with a bookend. Had she just come home as planned she would still be alive.

Special Agent Chavez and Special Agent Ronson take over the questioning. Since Nick wasn't there, they take Teresa alone to go over the details. Nick is worried about her, but Juliette is sure that she can handle herself. Nick and Hank will need to go to the precinct to make a statement. Juliette refuses to leave the house, its hers and she's feeling violated and affronted.

Inside Trubel goes over the details of what lead to the beheading. She sticks to the truth, omitting the vogueing. She goes over the fact that he broke in, shot the Captain. She'd never seen the shooter in her life, but he came after her, and shot at her. She hit her head on a table when she was trying to get away, she grabbed the first weapon she saw and fought back in fear of her life. The agents take her down to the station, Wu listened from the hallway the entire time.

In Austria, Viktor continues scheming against someone wishing to be elected. He's interrupted with news that Stewart shot Renard, but he was beheadded. The man is unsure if Nick did the beheadding, only knows that it happened in his house. Renard isn't dead, but in critical condition. Viktor's uncle would be devastated to learn that another son perished, especially this one, since he's so attached to him, which makes the secret of Viktor's involvement all the more important.

Dr. Anderson tosses the murder weapon into the harbor before contacting his boss. He tells him that he ran into a problem. The job isn't finished, and he needs to stay until its done, and now the boss is headed there.

Special Agent Chavez looks through Trubel's things. She finds one of her books on Wesen and vogues into a bird like creature. She asks her partner his take on the girl. She saw the police captain get shot, and then the shooter went after her. If it was his daughter she'd be a basket-case. Both conclude that he girl isn't normal, but because she isn't she's still alive. Chavez places the Grimm diaries under the nightstand, not where she found them and heads out.


The body is finally removed, and Juliette gets her house back. It is a mess, lamp still knocked over, and blood in the hallway. You would have thought they would have cleaned it up a little, for sanitation reasons at least. There's bullet holes in the hallways, and blood upstairs, but Juliette heads straight to her desecrated bedroom, focusing on that. Monroe and Rosalee arrive, they skipped their honeymoon in all the chaos, which is the last thing Juliette wants for them. They couldn't go anywhere with what is going one, they didn't even want to try.

Trubel continues to be questioned at the precinct, by the detectives as the special agents watch from behind the glass. Her story remains consistent. Everything she says matches the crime scene and Ronson thinks that she's telling the truth. Chavez remains silent.

Hank gets flight information. Nick gives Hank a cup of coffee, and he cautions him to calm down. He doesn't want to appear nervous. He needs to lay off the caffeine. The flight information was Adalind's, and boy is she in for a surprise when she arrives in Vienna and there is no baby there waiting. She's headed straight to the Royals, but they can't hold up their end of the deal. The Special Agents conclude that Trubel is free to go. Her story is consistent and there's no reason for them to charge her. Hank asks why their agent would want to shoot their Captain. He's been off the grid for weeks. They have no idea of motives. Chavez is cold towards them, and they know that something is up, but no clue that she's Wesen. Nick isn't even getting a tingle from his grimmhood. They go to check on the Trubel, but she's fine. Hank heads to check on Renard.

Dr. Anderson pours over his new found memories to get into the Sitre Corp system. One of the techs notice something odd about Slocum's login and decide to call him to verify that he was logged in, but the transfer is complete. Anderson got what he wanted, and no one answered the tech's call.

Hank arrives at the hospital, Wu is already there waiting for news. Wu is still struggling with things that he's seen, and the books at Nick's house is only making everything worse. The pictures in the book look like what he thought he saw, there are monsters inside of people. Wu is on the verge of discovery or breaking. Hank tries to play it off that there are monsters inside of people, that their faces change when they get angry. Wu confesses that he's still having nightmares. Hank is about to shed some light on Wu, when the doctor interrupts. Renard is out of surgery, but he's lost a lot of blood and there's a good chance that he goes into renal failure. They suggest that his next of kin be contacted.

Still in their wedding duds, Rosalee and Monroe go into full detective mode trying to figure out the cause. They know that Renard brought something for Nick to drink, and assume that it has something to do with the attack. Renard would know what was in the bottle, but he's not in any position to talk. Adalind would know but she's not likely to talk. Trubel and Nick arrive, Nick voices his concern over them being there when they should be enjoying their honeymoon. They couldn't enjoy it with the current crisis. Trubel apologizes for crashing their wedding, and sort of ruining it. Rosalee doesn't blame her, she knows that she was trying to save Nick. They need to find Adalind but she's headed back to Vienna. Trubel blames herself for their predicament, but Juliette reminds her that it isn't her fault but Adalind's, and she blurts out that Nick slept with Adalind. Seriously give the guy a break. He thought his girlfriend was seducing him, not some crazy Hexenbeast wearing her face. Nick has to explain himself as Rosalee thinks she knows what happened, hoping its not an entwining curse. They're headed to the spice shop to look for answers. Nick doesn't want Monroe screwing up his life over him, but Monroe reminds him that he wouldn't have his life if it weren't for him. Trubel wants to go to the trailer, but Juliette puts the kibosh on that for the night, so she heads off to bed. Alone, Juliette wants answers. Nick gives them to her, but she's not happy about it, he really had no clue. He offers to sleep on the couch, but she's not putting him completely in the doghouse.

Chavez stares at Trubel's mugshot. Ronson has been investigating Stewart, and found that he placed a call to GQR Industries before his death. They're still working on the connection. Stewart's car was also found about a block from Burkhardt's and inside was a packed suitcase.

Trubel does some light reading, as she relives the moment they realized Nick was truly Grimmless.

In bed, Nick can't seem to sleep. He replays his moments with Adalind as Juliette, what she said prior to him stripping her down. He puts his sleepless night to good use, and heads downstairs to clean up the blood. Juliette finds him scrubbing. He didn't want her to wake up to the blood, but she isn't willing to let him do it alone. Nick wonders if him no longer being a Grimm is a good thing for them.

Ronson inventories the contents of Stewart's suitcase. On the surface it seems completely innocent, until they find a special pouch. It is filled with money and passports from multiple countries. He was definitely ready to run, and obviously working for someone besides the FBI.

Nick gets a new case. Neither he nor Juliette got much sleep. Losing his Grimm is kind of weird, and he wonders if he'll still be a good cop without it. Trubel watches him leave before she heads down. Juliette isn't okay. Trubel asks to borrow her bike, and Juliette allows her, reminding her to be careful since she's now the only Grimm in town.

Nick's new case is Alexandra. Slocum was there when the police arrived, but he was so out of it, that they sent him to the hospital. There was no history of domestic disturbances. About ten minutes after they arrived, the neighbor ran over to tell them that they heard a scream and then Slocum racing off in his Porsche. But the car is still gone, and Slocum was there. It's possible that he took the car somewhere, and came back via cab, or more likely that someone else was there. Wu puts out an APB on the car, and Nick and Hank head to check on Slocum.

He's got wounds to the back of his head, and swelling and damage to the area of the brain where memories are stored. His doctor isn't surprised he's having trouble remembering anything, and looking at him, he still looks lost. She took pictures of his wounds, looks like someone was boring holes for a bowling ball, they just added an extra one. It's like nothing she's ever seen before.

Nick drives Hank out to the trailer. Its on property that's hard to find and not in his name. Trubel has already arrived, and she comes leaping out with a Katana in hand. She wasn't sure it was him or not. She rode all the way out to do some reading, trying to learn all that she can since now she's the only Grimm. She goes to work to help them find out what ate the man's memories.

The bossman meets with Anderson. Time is short, and he needs him to deliver. They need to prove to their client that what he is stealing is worth the fee that their asking. He offers up a key to entice them. His boss wants to hear about the collateral, and Anderson reveals Slocum's girl's death. He left it clean though. He can't be tied to the crime, as soon as he dumps the car. The boss tells him to get rid of the car. Anderson goes to the car, and a pair of officers stop him, questioning him about the car. He tells them that his friend Slocum loaned him the car for the weekend.

Trubel finds something in the books she thinks may be their culprit. Its some sort of memory eaters. The book isn't sure how the memories are taken exactly, but that the memories are stolen leaving the victims with a debilitating dementia. Nick gets the call that a suspect has been apprehended, and Trubel heads with the guys to the station.

A blonde walks the halls, definitely not Adalind, with her headed to Vienna. Renard seizes, and his heart stops prompting a code blue. A crash team responds while Elizabeth looks on.

Anderson goes over his story. He tells them that he was visiting his friend when his girlfriend arrived home from her trip early. The two began fighting, and Slocum gave his Porsche to use to check into a hotel. He was on his way to return it when he was brought in for questioning. Hank breaks to him the death of Alexandra, and Slocum still being in the hospital. He's worried over his friend, but offers to do whatever he can to help. Hank has him write up his statement, while the pair head to the other side of the glass. Nick didn't pick up anything, his confidence in himself diminishing. Anderson could be telling the truth, but if he's not they have nothing to hold him on. There's only one type of Wesen that could make the marks left on Slocum, and if Anderson isn't that kind, they're wasting their time. Hank plans to deploy a little Trubel. Anderson is free to go, but the Porsche stays. Anderson rushes out in a hurry, and walks right into Trubel who tries to mug him. He fully vogues on her, and she runs off, reporting to Nick and Hank that he is their man. She heads back out after Anderson.

Renard's heart refuses to start, and his death is officially called.

He can't stay dead right?!? And worse, there's no sign of him in next weeks previews. Why, oh why? That Hexenbeast Elizabeth is there for a reason, and it's not to watch Renard die, so do something already!

John Wick Review: Face-Shootings are Apparently In

John Wick combines slick action, perfectly-placed humor, and a puppy. Go figure.
In John Wick, Keanu Reeves plays a cold-blooded hitman whose world is turned upside down when a trio of Russian mobsters destroy the one connection to his deceased wife. The action flick - directed by stuntmen Chad Stahelski and David Leitch - takes Wick on a vicious killing spree, as he systematically eliminates his enemies all the way to the top dog Viggo Tarasov, played by Michael Nyqvist. Along the way, Wick will renew old acquaintances, like fellow assassin Ms. Perkins (Adrianne Palicki) and former partner Marcus (Willem Dafoe). As he works his way to the top, Wick becomes the irresistible force to Tarasov's immovable object, taking us full circle to the movie's disturbing opening.

Having zero expectations, I found Wick to be completely enjoyable. The action is fluid, the car stunts well-conceived, the humor perfectly placed. For two guys who never sat in the center chair other than to perform Second Unit duties - such as 300, The Bourne trilogy and Ninja Assasins - Stahelski and Leitch hit a solid triple in their first at-bat. Interior shots are gorgeous and well-apportioned, while outdoor stunts are carried off with tight enough action to show us the whole production without losing where the camera should be: right on Wick. And what a wrecking machine he is, whether it's whacking a hit team that descends on his home or the long line of suits who line up to be his next fodder.

Writer Derek Kolstad fashions a clever, funny, and confident script that never takes itself too seriously yet is happy to ride the line between sympathetic emotion and decadent violence. Humor abounds, as does one of the best efforts at universe building I've seen in 2014. This appreciation arrives not only in the form of a fabricated coinage system that fellow assassins and their minions employ, but an entire hotel existing specifically for these killers to stay and luxuriate between jobs. I can't make this up: when Wick calls an unknown number for "dinner for 12" he's really saying "I just killed 12 men and I need it cleaned up." Enter Dreamscape's David Patrick Kelly, who plays the film's version of Harvey Keitel's The Wolf from Pulp Fiction.

And yet, there are serious plot holes that I can't ignore. The ending is a total letdown, as if Leitch and Staheski bent to test audience reaction of the film's dark tone being too much. While I won't ruin it for you, the end does undo much of what is built, placing Wick in a position that reduces the story's dark tone to a positive and hopeful one. The action - while totally fun - doesn't hit high gear too often, relying on face shootings (never a problem in my book) and well-coordinated but ultimately lacking stunts. There are a few sequences though - one between Reeves and Palicki - that are memorable, which should keep audiences interested.

But there is much to like here as well, such as the pseduo-cameo appearances of Ian McShane as the leader/president of the assassin's guild and Lance Reddick as the hotel manager. Again, dry humor runs as a ribbon throughout John Wick, providing needed moments of levity into which Reeves perfectly inserts himself. There's also a definite 70's feel to things, from Wick's cool Mustang Fastback to the speakeasy at the bottom of hotel. Reeves plays Wick as the absolute master of his domain, literally placing fear in everyone who knows of him. When that sleeping giant is released, no one is safe

John Wick is surprisingly entertaining, even if its ending is disappointing. The film does nothing new for the genre, but that's not why we're here. Keanu is solid and his supporting cast will give audiences plenty to talk about when the lights come up. Wick is right up his alley and we're the better for it, even if we've been down that darkened road before.

John Wick is Rated R for strong and bloody violence throughout, language and brief drug use and has a runtime of 101 minutes.

Brad Pitt Gets Interviewed By Zach Galifianakis On "Between Two Ferns"

Galifianakis asks Pitt about living in Angelina Jolie's shadow in the 'Between Two Ferns' sketch

Brad Pitt sat down with Zach Galifianakis in an absolutely hysterical interview for the Between Two Ferns comedy series.

Watch the video after the Jump...



In the Funny or Die video, Galifianakis asks Pitt about everything from how he lost his virginity to why he doesn't shower. He also throws a string of insults at Pitt, including asking the actor if it's difficult to stay tan while living in Angelina Jolie's shadow.

Pitt, who is promoting his new film Fury, responds to the questions with deadpan expressions, which only makes the entire clip more entertaining. Watch Pitt's best interview yet and look out for Louis C.K.'s cameo and the absurd gum scene.

"The Greatest Movie Deaths of All Time" Picked By The Directors Of @ABCsofDeath

The directors behind the 26 short films in ABCs OF DEATH 2 have undertaken an epic project to determine "The Greatest Movie Deaths of All Time" -- using no accepted scientific method and zero statistical analysis the filmmakers have each selected their favorite scene, arriving at a definitive list of shocking, tragic, funny and frightening deaths for the Halloween season.

The selections are as widely diverse as you'd expect with a global roster of filmmakers that hail from Austria, Brazil, Canada, Cuba, France, Israel, Japan, Lithuania, Nigeria, Philippines, the UK and the US.

A great challenge is to try and identify all of the deaths depicted in this supercut!

Additionally, here's an ABCs OF DEATH 2 film clip from one of the shorts "W is for Wish" by director Steven Kostanski. Kostanksi shows what a He-Man-like world would really be like - so be careful what you wish for kids!

"W is for Wish" by Steven Kostanski (NSFW)


ABCs of Death 2 is the follow-up to the most ambitious anthology film ever conceived with productions spanning from Nigeria to UK to Brazil and everywhere in between. It features segments directed by over two dozen of the world's leading talents in contemporary genre film. The film is comprised of twenty-six individual chapters, each helmed by a different director assigned a letter of the alphabet, beginning with the letter A and ending with the letter Z. The directors were then given free rein in choosing a word to create a story involving death. Provocative, shocking, funny and at times confrontational,
ABCs of Death 2 is another global celebration of next generation genre filmmaking.

One of the most versatile comedic actors in both television and film, Kevin Hart has many upcoming projects including the theatrical release of THE WEDDING RINGER (Screen Gems) on Fri, Jan 16, 2015.

ABOUT “THE BIG HOUSE”

Under the guidance of the loud and sometimes crude Cleveland family, Kevin gets a crash course in dating, religion, and education. Through a series of outrageously funny situations (often laced with genuine emotion), Kevin begins to realize that he has more in common with his common relatives than he ever imagined. Originally aired on ABC, The Big House co-stars Yvette Nicole-Brown (“Community”) and Faizon Love (Couples Retreat).

Christian Bale Cast In Steve Jobs Biopic

UPDATE: Bloomberg has talked to a highly-placed source (one Aaron Sorkin), who confirms Bale is aboard. “We needed the best actor on the board in a certain age range and that’s Chris Bale,” Sorkin says. “He didn’t have to audition. Well, there was a meeting.” You can see him use an extended sports metaphor in the Bloomberg video here. But we sort of wish he'd announced it like this.

He was talked about back when David Fincher was considering directing the film, and it would appear that Sony is still interested in Christian Bale. The actor is now in talks for the Steve Jobs biopic that the studio is looking to make.

Danny Boyle remains in the director’s chair for the film, which Aaron Sorkin has been busy writing. Sorkin’s script, which is based on Walter Isaacson’s bestselling authorised biography of the man, focuses on three big moments in Jobs’ corporate life, including the launch of the Mac, the NeXT (which was introduced after he was removed from the company) and the iPod, launched in the years after his triumphant return.

When Boyle took over the megaphone in April, there was some suggestion that he'd try to land Leonardo DiCaprio for a reunion of The Beach’s team. But DiCaprio has decided to throttle back on acting duties after working on Alejandro González Iñárritu’s The Revenant and passed on the gig, leaving the way clear for Boyle and producer Scott Rudin to once again talk to Bale.

He’s not yet confirmed, but it’s looking much more likely this time, with a shoot pencilled in for next year, ahead of 20th Century Fox's The Deep Blue Goodbye, which has hit a negotiation bump thanks to Bale's wariness about committing to sequels.

Disney Unveils "Tinker Bell and the Legend of the Neverbeast" Clip

INTRODUCING "TINKER BELL AND THE LEGEND OF THE NEVERBEAST": GINNIFER GOODWIN AS THE VOICE OF 'FAWN' AND THE ALL NEW CHARACTER 'GRUFF' AS NEVERBEAST


DisneyToon Studios is pleased to announce that Ginnifer Goodwin ("Once Upon a Time") will voice the character Fawn in the new Disney Fairies adventure, "Tinker Bell and the Legend of the NeverBeast".



"Fawn is a character who loves all animals unconditionally," said director Steve Loter. "She will help any animal that needs her, but sometimes Fawn thinks too impulsively, when she should be thinking with her head, as well as her heart."

Loter says there's a lot of Goodwin in the character. "Fawn was inspired by my daughter and her unconditional love of animals," he said. "But Ginnifer had a very strong hand in crafting the character. Her sense of fun and her wondrous view of the world gave Fawn direction. You can hear the smile in Ginnifer's voice—this is a character that loves life and lives it to its fullest."

About '"Gruff":
The heartwarming story explores the ancient myth of a mysterious creature whose distant roar sparks the curiosity of Tinker Bell's friend Fawn, an animal fairy who's not afraid to break the rules to rescue the NeverBeast before time runs out. The fairies meet Gruff who is a massive creature and the subject of an ancient Pixie Hollow myth. Hidden in a dark lair on the fringes of the fairies' beloved home, Gruff is discovered by curious and empathetic animal fairy Fawn, who sees something special in his glowing green eyes. His penchant for stacking rocks mystifies Fawn and her friends—but Gruff's true purpose is the real surprise.

The film, releasing in-home March 3, 2015, also features the voices of Mae Whitman (Tinker Bell), Megan Hilty (Rosetta), Lucy Liu (Silvermist), Raven Symone (Iridessa), Anjelica Huston (Queen Clarion) and is directed by Steve Loter ("Kim Possible") and produced by Makul Wigert ("Secret of the Wings").

She's an illegal immigrant, living with her uncle Bassam (Laith Nakli), who was Sam's
interpreter. Amira has a run-in with the police and so Sam takes her under his wing.
Despite their differences, Sam and Amira share a common bond as outsiders. The more time they spend together, the harder it is for them to combat their feelings for one another. Meanwhile, Sam becomes entangled in Charlie's investment scheme and Amira's trouble with the law escalates to the brink of deportation. As the film builds to a climax, Sam has an epiphany: in order to save Amira from being deported, he's forced to risk everything he fought so hard to defend.

Margot Robbie To Star In The Taliban Shuffle

After a succession of dramatic roles, Margot Robbie is taking a step toward some comedy.

The Wolf of Wall Street breakout is in negotiations to join Tina Fey in The Taliban Shuffle, Paramount’s adaptation of journalist Kim Barker’s wartime memoir.

The move will reteam her with Glenn Ficarra and John Requa, who directed her opposite Will Smith in the 2015 thriller Focus. Fey is producing the political black comedy with her former Saturday Night Live boss and 30 Rock cohort Lorne Michaels.

The book recounts Barker’s arrival as a fish out of water in Kabul, filing stories about militants, being a woman in wartime Iraq and Pakistan and dealing with boredom interspersed with dashes of violence and the promiscuous war-correspondent culture.

Robbie will play a blond, gorgeous and hard-core on-air news anchor who befriends Baker (Fey) in Afghanistan. The character has been described as very competitive and willing to do anything, including put herself and others in danger, to get a story to launch her reporting career.

Dealmaking is a little bit tricky on this one as Robbie is also in talks to star in The Suicide Squad, Warners’ DC-based movie being directed by David Ayer. Ayer is currently writing the script, although that movie wouldn't shoot until spring of 2015. But Robbie does need to make room to promote Focus, which opens Feb. 27.

Robbie, who is no longer attached to star in Fox’s love drama The Mountain Between Us, recently wrapped playing Jane in Warners’ Tarzan movie.

Shocking Cost To Make The Hobbit Trilogy

We're now two months away from the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, the final film in The Hobbit trilogy and, very likely, the final Middle-earth movie (the Tolkien estate still owns the film rights to Middle-earth books like The Silmarillion, and they're not too happy with Hollywood these days) from Peter Jackson, who earned international acclaim, millions of dollars and 17 Oscars (including a record-tying 11 for The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King) for his Lord of the Rings film trilogy.

Though they've certainly made plenty of money -- the first two films have earned just shy of two billion dollars at the box office -- Jackson's Hobbit films have faced pleny of criticism, particularly for the decision to stretch what was originally a two-film adaptation into a three-film one. The story certainly feels stretched out to a lot of viewers, but it's hard to argue with box-office results. Warner Bros. anticipated making plenty of cash from these films -- and they have -- so they were happy to dish out plenty of cash to make the films happen. How much? Well, even if you're accustomed to reading about mega-budget movies, that total might surprise you.

According to financial documents filed in New Zealand this month, reported on by the Associated Press, the Hobbit trilogy cost $745 million as of March of this year. We don't know if that number includes the cost of marketing and distributing the films thus far, but it also doesn't include the post-production money that's been spent between March and now, or the marketing money that will be spent between now and the final film's December release. So, no matter how you slice it, this is a lot of money to spend on a film franchise.

To put that number in some context, the Lord of the Rings trilogy cost somewhere in the neighborhood (the final budget is disputed) of $300 million to make. According to this particular inflation calculator, that still adds up to less than $400 million today (if you calculate from 2003, when Return of the King was released). It's worth noting that we don't know exactly how much of that money (if any) went to marketing and distribution, and that most budget figures we see are estimates (though the Hobbit numbers are from actual financial documents filed in New Zealand, where the films are made). Plus, if you look at a film like The Avengers, which had an estimated budget of $220 million when it was released in 2012, you can see how a franchise could pile up a total cost of three-quarters of a billion dollars over the course of three movies.

So, yes, it's a massive amount of money, but it seems to be resulting in very robust box-office returns for Warner Bros. Whether the quality of the resulting films is up to your standards is something you'll have to settle yourself.
